A very special thanks goes to the Level|Up Series guys for being so helpful and nice. Also, Seth Killian, Arlieth, Chris Li, MediaDarling, Justice, Nyoronoru, James Chen, Mr. Wizard, Karaface and Tom Cannon for their support — plus the many other people I know I'm forgetting.

Also, kudos to Poke, PHB and Axefresh for contributing to this story.

mcfizzle said on July 10, 2010 at 9:06 p.m.

So many great matches. Stream was awesome when they switched to Ustream. So hype. Props to Shizza and Vangief for shinning on the big stage.

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:07 p.m.

@truth I believe I heard that too... Ironic how that came back and kicked him in his butt. I guess this is an example to all... Its best to view all charaters as equals... You never know when you will be destroyed by them.

PandaTron said on July 10, 2010 at 9:07 p.m.

well...he lost...is what I was trying to get at....every one of his videos that I've seen (even when he loses) he acts like he just let his opponent beat him

holo7 said on July 10, 2010 at 9:07 p.m.

Now that is what we call irony Mr.Wong.....

yes4me said on July 10, 2010 at 9:08 p.m.

wait wait wait...

Did EVO change server?
Justin Wong is not playing MvC2... just TvC? But he can't win that one... Marn is just too good at that game.

Pig_Red said on July 10, 2010 at 9:08 p.m.

I can't wait for the excuses.

gamerbee reading game was his best tool here, his style was kind of risky but certanly paid off, since nobody expect such an unsafe way of play, anyway awesome guess game by gamerbee

jwong_fan_club said on July 10, 2010 at 9:10 p.m.

JWong did 2 random deperation ultras in the first match.. it was embarrassing indeed.

NeoSmoke said on July 10, 2010 at 9:11 p.m.

I knew Gamer Bee would make top 8. If you watch his matches on youtube vs Daigo and other Japenese he rapes them all with Adon. This Evo will be Daigo vs. Gamer Bee with Gamer taking it like he usually does.

mikey_bim said on July 10, 2010 at 9:11 p.m.

what karma thats what u get when u say charcter is not good you ket knock out by that charcter gamerbee adon 2 justing wong out lolololololo

L45R said on July 10, 2010 at 9:13 p.m.

LOL What irony..

DRain said on July 10, 2010 at 9:13 p.m.

Fantastic stuff by Gamerbee in the last game. Not sure if the rest of the players in the top 8 can make good reads on him, though.

Are the finals tomorrow really at 9AM? The schedule has SSFIV listed for 9PM...

bamx said on July 10, 2010 at 9:14 p.m.

@NeoSmoke

Daigo actually wins more than he loses to Gamer Bee in their matches.

BWBoyToucher said on July 10, 2010 at 9:14 p.m.

SRK isn't quite completely crashed.

Right now the character subforum with the highest viewcount that isn't Adon's is Zangief's, with 19 viewers.

Adon's, you ask?

Adon (251 Viewing)

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:14 p.m.

This event... it is as intense as they claim it to be... I am more determined than ever to go next year and maybe even try my hand at it although I know I am nowhere near any one of these player's level... yet. I am still looking for good character to use... and always looking for teachers lol. Any takers?

Dreson said on July 10, 2010 at 9:14 p.m.

@ 206 Hell yea, when the game was first being shown he did a demo with adon and lost, saying that adon was garbage and had no combos and that he was a waste of a character.......the irony.

Shade said on July 10, 2010 at 9:14 p.m.

@206
LOL, that's true he did say that, look what happened now jwong you shouldn't be chirping other characters man, be prepared for all.

DaHumanSpyda said on July 10, 2010 at 9:15 p.m.

Anyone else liked watching them put back the chairs? They did it with a great technique! I think it's called Dual Handed Positioning or something like that. Definitely the highlight of this stream.

jhayze said on July 10, 2010 at 9:16 p.m.

...btw who sent GamerBee to the losers bracket?

souNdwAve said on July 10, 2010 at 9:19 p.m.

#248

9PM PST TOMORROW I believe

OniJELLY20 said on July 10, 2010 at 9:20 p.m.

Hey everyone,
Who were you guys rooting for? Personally I was rooting for Tokido since I'm a Gouki main and he's the best Gouki out there. I wanted Tokido vs Daigo in the grand finals but Gamerbee is beast also.
About Justin Wong : I knew he wouldn't be in the grand finals. With top japan players repping it there, it just made things very hard for him lol just sayin'...

YourEveryDayJackAss said on July 10, 2010 at 9:20 p.m.

WOO! Gamerbee, way to show Jwong what's Adon all about! Also makes me proud as an Adon mainer!

BWBoyToucher said on July 10, 2010 at 9:21 p.m.

@DRain, SSFIV starts at 9pm Pacific time, but the finals as a whole start at 9am with Melty Blood (which probably three people will watch, haha)

OniJELLY20 said on July 10, 2010 at 9:22 p.m.

Grand finals : Daigo Umehara vs Gamerbee
Winner : Daigo Umehara =P

NeoSmoke said on July 10, 2010 at 9:23 p.m.

I'm glad most of the Rufus players got taken out of top 8.

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:26 p.m.

I so wish to be lucky enough to win the gold fight stick... *wishful thinking*

Rydah said on July 10, 2010 at 9:28 p.m.

damn 463 ppl viewing the adon thread in srk forums. wtf!

DRain said on July 10, 2010 at 9:30 p.m.

@252 Thanks for clarifying that, threw me off when they kept referring to finals at 9AM.

I kinda wanna see GamerBee was Vangief, to see what kind of options Adon has against Gief.

mjcd said on July 10, 2010 at 9:31 p.m.

JUSTIN WONG ELIMINATED BY ADON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO
Who's the thrash now? lol
Justin Wong was slamming Adon (PLEASE SEE THE VIDEO) and it is ironic that Adon kick his a$$ out of the BIGGEST TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD....

JUSTIN WONG tought Adon was the weaker player in the game, well I guess JUSTIN WONG and his Rufus are weaker lol....

GREAT REASON TO PARTY!!!!!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxzCLD...

Gameplan said on July 10, 2010 at 9:33 p.m.

Now everyone is going to say they were Adon mainers from the start, yeah right.

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:37 p.m.

I liked Adon quite a bit but not good enough to main him or anyone at the moment... Someple please take me up on my offer lol

RandomJohn said on July 10, 2010 at 9:38 p.m.

Awww Justin not in top 8? Wonder if his sponsor going to drop him now haha?

On another note, I'm surprised there weren't any boxers in the semi's.

Catalyst said on July 10, 2010 at 9:45 p.m.

Making ANY kind of racist comments can and most likely will get you banned. This is your last warning.

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:46 p.m.

*pokes Catalyst* Hi! ^_^

RA_MO said on July 10, 2010 at 9:57 p.m.

saiferoth said on July 10, 2010 at 10:01 p.m.

Stopped around when Floe eliminated Juicebox. What were the highlights and how the heck did Mike Ross get in the Winners Bracket? WTF!?!

Also need to see Daigo whoop down Shizza

Vangief > JWONG??!?!?!?!!1 Epic.

Totally missed the Adon action. Please, someone, explain in detail, the saltiness that took place. Man, I hope this was archived.

@saiferoth

ok here it goes. first up justin went against vangief and tried to turtle the entire time so vang caught him off guard alot with zangeifs standing medium punch alot. a few comand grabs here and there. they both were doing great with poke game.

final game 1 jwong 1 vangief, justin got overwhelmed he got slapped up 4 times in a row with standing strong from zangief. vangief hit him with an ultra and then rushed in towards wong and got in another suplex and finished him off.

he got totally embarrased by gamerbee when he was juggled so many times and just hit with alot of jaguar kicks left and right. dude look at it for yourself my words dont even scratch how good those matches were!

According to KSK's tweet, Daigo has caught a cold and is in pretty bad condition. Apparently, only KSK, Tokido, and Eita was at the "Salty Suite" last night.

Doppler said on July 10, 2010 at 10:19 p.m.

well my main is vega but I like the adon style, speed and keep guessing you enemy, very similar to vega.

jwong's face in the video hahahaha so nervious :S
a top tier ( rufus) beated by a low tier ( adon)

asdfasdf said on July 10, 2010 at 10:20 p.m.

anyone else wished justin woulda made it to top 8. I wanted justin to face daigo in the finals, causethat woulda been hype

Jarkyttaa said on July 10, 2010 at 10:24 p.m.

This really just goes to show that SSFIV>tier lists. The game is so well balanced that 95% of the time, the better player wins. I still haven't given up hope on Makoto or Hakan, either, but it will likely take months/years to even begin to tell how they'll fold out in the long term.

Axefresh said on July 10, 2010 at 10:35 p.m.

Correction to the battle log, floe was using rufus against shizza.

Axefresh said on July 10, 2010 at 10:37 p.m.

also flash lost to JR the honda player. It's a different person.

saiferoth said on July 10, 2010 at 10:41 p.m.

@#272 Jarkyttaa

Thnx man!

Yeah, Gamerbee really taught some scrubs on here that tiers are almost irrelevant. Better player > "Better character". Especially applies to SSF4.

@#250, its a weird m/u. If you jaguar kick and it gets blocked, Gief gets a free spd, but Gief basically cannot use lariat at all, alot of adons stuff beats lariat, including jaguar revolver(ultra 1). To me it seems to be a pretty even fight, I dont really have hard times vs Zangief tbh.

Jarkyttaa said on July 10, 2010 at 10:52 p.m.

Yeah, DoublePerfect is removing all EVO videos they can find, apparently. Suppose we just have to wait for the stream archive.

GamerBee vs Arturo/Sabin money match happening now

Smorgasboard said on July 10, 2010 at 11:04 p.m.

Daigo Vs Mike Ross
Daigo should have no problem beating any Honda player even if it is Mike Ross on his best day. Daigo 8-2

Vangief Vs Ricky Ortiz
Finally, a US Zangief player who is on par with the Japanese Zangiefs. He would have taken it against Ricky if it were played on Saturday but you can bet Justin will be working hard with Ricky on this matchup. Vangief 7-3

Henry Cen vs GamerBee
GamerBee, Taiwan's champion, has made full use of Adon's speed and unpredictability to catch his opponents off guard but faces a tough challenge against turtling characters like Honda. Both players are relatively unknown so it can still go either way. GamerBee 6-4

Infiltration vs Shizza
Funny how Infiltration who only lost to Alex Valle is in the top 8 while Alex is not and now he has to face Shizza who knocked Alex down to losers. Shizza 7-3

KenScrub said on July 10, 2010 at 11:25 p.m.

"JUSTIN WONG ELIMINATED BY ADON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO
Who's the thrash now? lol"

Nice to see what justin had coming to him. always being so cocky. Didn't even make it to top 8, how very sad. EG should drop his ass.

JumpMan33 said on July 10, 2010 at 11:31 p.m.

I think Ricky will counter pick with Chun tomorrow. I seen him on the IPW steams and his Chun is not bad.

Flawless said on July 10, 2010 at 11:31 p.m.

I'm still speechless right now what can I say I was one of those people that thought Justin was going to take it I was sooo wrong. A person that does random ultras doesn't belong to be in top 8 Justin was playing really scrubby missing links not punishing whiffs hats off to Daigo him or Gamerbee looked to be the fave to take it.

Cauptain said on July 10, 2010 at 11:32 p.m.

sucks for guys like me who had to run to the store during that last set :/

JumpMan33 said on July 10, 2010 at 11:46 p.m.

Also, did One handed terror enter the tournament? I know he said he was going but i didn't see him at all.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 12:09 a.m.

@Flawless: I'm no Wong fanboy, but he needs to be given his dues. He was expecting Adon to jump, and Adon just didn't. If he caught them with those ultras, there's no chance anyone would have called them random.

PHB said on July 11, 2010 at 12:13 a.m.

For Catalyst, or anyone else who cares, here's who made it to top 8 for HDR (names only, not sure who's facing who in the final bracket).

Winner's Bracket: DGV, Snake Eyez, Tokido, Jason Cole

Loser's Bracket: Daigo, Afrolegends, Alex Valle, RyRy

RandomJohn said on July 11, 2010 at 12:25 a.m.

I didn't understand why Justin picked U2 at the beginning. Adon has no fireball. What can he counter with that? Adon's jaguar kick?

RandomJohn said on July 11, 2010 at 12:27 a.m.

Also I really hope Ricky Ortiz gets knocked out too. I'm tired of Rufus.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 12:34 a.m.

@294: Jump in's, jaguar kicks and possibly jaguar tooths, although the reaction would have to be pretty nuts for the last one, but I think it works.

Grimmjow316 said on July 11, 2010 at 1:07 a.m.

Looks like Henry Cen learned alot from Geom on how to deal with Guile.

chickenwings said on July 11, 2010 at 1:22 a.m.

The top 8 looks like theres gonna be alot of crazy matchs. Out of all of them i want that gief player to win, hes fun to watch and it would be nice to see a grappler win a big one.

Hayate1984 said on July 11, 2010 at 1:33 a.m.

Man... It's shocking how J.Wong couldn't punish the jaguars with U2, one of the easiest things to do. Those random U2 were embarrassing. I guess being too technical hurts your reactions or something.

Also Adon's jumps are kinda slow and "floaty", very easy to H.Kick---> ex snake strike.

Wong played defensively and wasted ex.messiah kicks when he could instead risk some more jumps and do H.Kick into ex. snake strike. Adon can't do big damage in the air, when he have U2 you can easily bait it out with short dive-kicks and his jaguar-knee shoryuken does pitiful damage as anti-air.

The audience beat J.Wong not Gamerbee, if they had a rematch Wong would beat him badly like he did to AndyOCR. Its scary when Wong goes into angry-mode...

I've beaten many Adon's 3000+ PP online and they don't play very differently from gamerbee, so Wong get your head out of your ass and stop thinking about Daigo and finals try to learn to counter the new characters and STOP underestimating them. When you get cornered badly by a Adon then that means you're unsure of the match-up.

Trance82 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:03 a.m.

lol Gamerbee would destroy you bro. Go beat Daigo, Tokido, Eita and Jwong before you go and say he plays like the 3000 pp Adon's you play online. 3000 PP man, that makes you pro!

Trance82 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:04 a.m.

Oh and btw he's now beaten Sabin in best of 5 twice, Marn, Kai, Dagger G the list goes on. He's running up a hitlist of all the top players, and you think he's some xbox scrub?

Blackapino1984 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:07 a.m.

Just a vid I found on youtube.

uHuRu85 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:13 a.m.

Hayate1984, you are a funny dude. You think beating 3000PP players online makes you pro, or that those 3000PP Adon players you fought are as good as GamerBee?

Seriously, lol.

jjohan35 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:14 a.m.

Justin is a great player, but he gets affected by his own psychology way too much. He doesn't have the ability to clutch it at the end especially when he's down, unlike other players who consistently come out on top in clutch moments. He needs to stay calm and collected, it's his own attitude or mindset that brings his own downfall.

He probably lost because of his Justin Bieber haircut lol.

ShadowKnight28 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:22 a.m.

Yo Eventhubs, you guys should put up a link for the Salty Suite mini-tourney, or at least a little shout out. Not enough people know about it. This sh!t is super hype, and Gamerbee is killin it.

I saw the Dagger G one his downloading skills are on par with Daigo crazy.

yes4me said on July 11, 2010 at 2:40 a.m.

I am going to give some (unfair?) credits to Justin Wong. He met 2 players who not only play great but were using a character he didn't seem prepare well. I have never seen justin so nervous. Maybe he had some other personal stuffs matter in his head during the game.

Nevertheless I am rooting for 1st to 4th place in no order:
Infiltration or Daigo or Gamerbee or Zangief

ShadowKnight28 said on July 11, 2010 at 2:48 a.m.

GRAND FINALS. GAMERBEE vs MARN. Daigo money matches to follow. Tune in people!

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/teamspooky

Trance82 said on July 11, 2010 at 3:04 a.m.

haha And Gamerbee takes it! Sadly he's not as good as a 3000 PP xbox Adon tho.

Hayate1984 said on July 11, 2010 at 3:16 a.m.

No... *rolls eyes* Obviously that don't make a pro for beating random Adon's 3000+ pp online but they ain't crappy players and they do similiar pressure and mindgames like Gamerbee pulled off. You guys think these guys who appear tournaments are 10000x better than serious folks who play online? if yes, then I pity you. Because they could be the very same people you see in tournaments.

Speaking of pro's... only one can be called that and that is no other than the man: Daigo. If you let the audience or your low mentality affect your gameplay then you don't deserve to be called pro.

Trance82 said on July 11, 2010 at 3:29 a.m.

haha Nice attempt at justifying your comments. Fact of the matter is the people you see always winning at the tournaments are far better than the majority of players online.

I wonder how many xbox players who thought "Hey I have a ton of PP, I'mma sign up for EVO and win it all!" are in a pool of 2000? Answer? A ton. Yet the final 32 and now the final 8 are the same names you always see at the end of every tournament. It's unfortunate you aren't able to recognize that simple fact, but hey if you want to say you're as good as these guys in the top 8, more power to you.

Mabans said on July 11, 2010 at 3:29 a.m.

Saw the Vangief vs Jwong match. It was a great match.. And I agree completely about Daigo and the pro mentality.. Well said Hayate1984

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 3:41 a.m.

@Hayate Just because they use the same moves doesn't mean they have a similar mindgame. Also, execution when grinding pp is different than execution on the main stage at EVO. Since you seem to measure character strength by pp, I assume a 7000+ Adon would be at least twice as better as the random 3000 pp Adons you fight.

Ohwait, Gamerbee is a 7000+ Adon.

Saying that random 3000 pp Adons online are of the same quality as Gamerbee is like saying any 3000 pp Rufus who mashes EX Messiah Kick is the same as Jwong or any 3000 pp Ryu who connects links and spams fireballs is the same as Daigo. Just because they use the same moves, it doesn't mean they're anywhere near as good.

If there are so many Adons with the same game as Gamerbee, why is he the only one who made it to the top 32 (and there were very few Adons in the tournament as a whole from what I've seen)?

Hayate1984 said on July 11, 2010 at 3:43 a.m.

PP doesn't mean a s*** but it gives a idea on how good your opponent is.

Example:
Poongko or Geom Modinside may have godly amount of PP and play good online/ranked. But can they handle the pressure that are in tournaments?

Being in a tournament is far more difficult than sitting in your home playing with no distractions. So no, not everyone with high PP automatically gonna win EVO.

BTW nice troll attempt. If you think that I consider myself as better than these players then you're nothing but a troll.

Jarkyttaa said on July 11, 2010 at 3:49 a.m.

So you're saying that Justin lost because he isn't used to fighting in tournaments? The only real mistakes he made were the wiffed ultras in the first game, and those were just twitch reaction. The rest of his game was pretty classic Justin Wong. Gamerbee clearly held his composure and was just a better player than Justin for those 3 games.

Hayate1984 said on July 11, 2010 at 3:52 a.m.

@Jarkyttaa

I can't argue with that, but U2 shuts down many of Adon's specials, pokes and jump-ins. I don't know what happened to J.Wong but he failed and didn't demonstrate the power of U2.

When is J.Wong is at his best gamerbee won't be able to beat him that badly and easily.

I played enough to know that Rufus vs Adon is in Rufus' favor.
