Daigo unleashes Evil Ryu's tricky 'okizeme' setups on Momochi - Topanga Banzuke matches also ft. Nemo, Darui, Mago, Fuudo and Kazunoko

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • August 20, 2014 at 8:43 a.m. PDT

On this week's episode of Topanga TV, MCZ|Tokido, MCZ|Mago and EG|Momochi run through some of the highlights from the Tokyo Topanga Banzuke event from two weekends ago, before diving into an online tournament session with stream viewers who had 3,500PP or more.

Of particular note within the matches shown today was the one played between MCZ|Daigo and EG|Momochi, in which The Beast shows off a bunch of Evil Ryu's okizeme (wake-up offense) options that catches Momochi by surprise.

Other notable players featured in these Topanga Banzuke matches include Darui (Dhalsim), BE|Nemo (Rolento), MCZ|Mago (Fei Long), RZR|Fuudo (Fei Long), and Kazunoko (Yun).

Check out the stream archive embedded below, along with time codes for the matches.

Daigo's E.Ryu just keeps getting better and better. Eventually he will surpass Sako's

If you have an iphone then download the Photon Internet Browser. It has a Flash Player on it. Trust me it's the best $4 you'll ever spend In the App Store.

Don't really see how Daigo's oki was that great, he did cross up mk like twice?

If anything I have to give credit to his fantastic corner pressure whilst trying to make the fireball as safe as possible with his spacing.

We need more Dhalsim like this, I haven't seen anything from this character since Ultra dropped.

True, but daigo is a better sf4 players.

#15
abirzenith said on August 20, 2014 at 11:52 a.m.

his execution is good, but so are many others, Sako oftens chokes, doesn't have the same footsie capability as many others such as daigo and fuudo. he is amazing though

#16
DenoK said on August 20, 2014 at 11:59 a.m.

...I can't think of any SF4 player with better footsies than Sako.

#17
kaeshi said on August 20, 2014 at 12:07 p.m.

likewise lol.

Think people put too much stock in his visits to the USA.

So beating Fuudo's Fei with AE2012 E. Ryu (CapCup, Topanga Asia) means what? And making it to EVO top 8 with a one week character - Elena -, was some kind of miracle? Did he get lucky?

Sako has one of the best footsies in the business. Sako chocking is still better than many top players playing their best.

But, to be honest, my top 3 players regarding fundamentals would be Sako, Daigo and Fuudo.

Daigo still dropping axe kick combos :(

#22
SgtKonus said on August 20, 2014 at 3:37 p.m.

I agree. Sako's been an execution master but Ricky O, who I consider to have one of the best grasp of raw footsies in the US easily showed what happens when Sako fights someone who can out-footsie him.

That being said, I love Momochi's Ken, great footsies.

I personally thinks when someone uses axe kick to crouch medium punch,it generally means he's comfortable with that link.
Instead people use crouch light punch (easier but shorter).
@DenoK
i think Daigo have better footsies overall.
But i dont think someone can beat Sako's Ibuki footsies.
IMHO despite his combo mastery with E.Ryu he lacks the ''footsies'' he have with Ibuki and Cammy.
But being extremely intelligent he hides them with well timed pokes and meaties.

Watching Fuudo play that Sim was funny. Never seen Fuudo jump so much in a match before :P

Enjoyed that. Misse is a beast! Definitely took some notes.
Also that Sim was amazing. Nice to see high level play from characters you hardly get to see.
