If you played Street Fighter back in the Alpha days and followed the competitive scene at all, you knew Alex Valle.


One of the most successful and storied Street Fighter players ever, Level|Up's Alex Valle sat down with Seth Killian at Spring Fighter 2014 to discuss some of his most high profile match ups through the years, including the rivalry with John Choi, and his Alpha 3 championship set against Daigo Umehara.

Valle is one of the most influential people in the FGC's entire history, and on a personal level, he's one of the individuals who helped inspire me to start EventHubs.

Uncle Valle demonstrated how incredibly competitive and deep these games could be, and to this very day he's ushering in a new generation of players, teaching and providing them with a place to improve at Wednesday Night Fights.

When you can spare the time, I'd highly recommend watching this discussion. It's a long one, clocking in at one hour and 43 minutes, but it covers many of the origins of this scene we all have so much passion for.

So sit back and grab some popcorn and beverage of choice, and enjoy the show. There are some really terrific stories told here.
