Cross Counter episode 8, Combofiend vs. Marn

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • August 17, 2010 at 8:50 p.m. PDT
This week's episode of Cross Counter changes up the pace a bit, as two very well known players, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas (Guy) and Martin "Marn" Phan (C. Viper) compete on the center stage.

Gootecks and Mike Ross feel that Combofiend has the best Guy on the planet and Marn has won his fair share of tournaments, so this is definitely an epic match. Here's the clip.

i dunno if combofiend is the best guy on the planet. kiryu is pretty crazy himself. but i love seeing guy represented nonetheless

FINALLY they cover a high level match. Even if it's with Guy who is rarely seen in tourneys.

Only thing i really don't understand is around 2:50 (end of first round) where CF does his ex hurricane kick and they both act like they he did that just because he wanted to. He obviously did it to ensure the victory of the round as there was pretty much nothing Marn could do at that point. They also claimed that he "tried to jump or something" when it was obvious it was a thunder knuckle as you can even see the "reversal" message appear as i suppose that's all Marn could attempt to do (although CF knew this therefore proceeded to do the ex hurricane kick to ensure the round as he knew the ex hurricane would beat out any thunder knuckle attempt even if it is a reversal as mentioned earlier)

Yeah, it's not like Marn had any options there. He was either going to get chipped out or try and fail a reversal.

@ Remster

I know, what the hell.

I wanted to see that match the most too.
I rarely see mean Makatos

D'Nyc3 actually has a really good Guy. I'd say he's better if not just as good as Combofiend.

@ BlackHart if you want to see a mean Makoto, watch Flash Metroid's matches using her...

the combos that daigo throws on the Hsien Chang fight last game 1st round are Godlike. "I RESPECK DAT"

This stuff is really common sense... it's not like their playing chess here.

Yeah right... they should get out more often =_='

I agree with Jinzo...

this seems to be for ppl who have absolutely no idea how to play...

for everyone else...this seems almost insultingly basic...

Combo is definitely the best Guy that in America that is at least seen, Best Guy on the planet hands down is Kiryu Tsukimiya right now.

@ throughsilence

Dync3 is solid and legit but definitely not at the same level as Combofiend.

Combofiend did an EX dp because he wanted a chip win, not because he's combofiend and he does whatever you wants to do. He noticed Viper was knocked down and on life support. He figured he might as well burn a bar and go for the chip win instead of risking a comeback from Marn knowing the fact Marn CAN and WILL comeback to win if you let him.

I'm not sure. These guys probably see Combofiend in action alot more than what we've seen of Kiryu on Youtube

"Welcome back to cross counter" LMFAO @11:08

Sorry but coming from the "Best US Guy player" he sure as hell didn't do anything impressive for Guy standards. If he's seriously on that level of beast I would've seen more 1-frame Run, Stop mixups or the 768 Dmg corner trap. If you don't know what I'm talking about then don't bother commenting. I want to hear my fellow Guy users opinions.

Not jocking Combofiend's swag but his Viper is god status compared to Guy

Gorav said on August 18, 2010 at 3:10 p.m.

@21
Watching this myself I know about couple moves he could have done but he just did simple combos in the corner. Playing it safe?

#22

@22
I could see that. Was this a money match? If so its reasonable. I guess I don't care about losing enough lol. Successful risks with Guy is just gratifying especially if you have them scared ****less.

IF u guy players didnt know... his run stop is only safe after a close heavy punch ( on hit or block). Every other move into his run stop can be reversaled with a simple light kick, jab, dp, etc.. i tried it in training mode against all characters its not safe.

@21
That 768 combo in the corner is a reset and against good players like it is way too risky to do it

#25
kondee said on August 19, 2010 at 1:58 p.m.

Best "Guy" on the planet? That's a bit too presumptuous. Watching any videos of Kiryu Tsukimiya will show just how much the gap is. A great Guy player in the US but that title is just ridiculous and ignorant and shows how little they know of many other world players.

#26
rinoH said on August 19, 2010 at 3:17 p.m.

Yeah by no means is Combofiend the best guy but im guessing that Gootecks and Mike Ross dont watch youtube vids all day of Guy they probably think that Combofiend is the only Guy player lol
