We haven't had much in-person tournament action over the last two years thanks to Covid-19, but as the fighting game community prepares to ease back into traditional events, we feel a look back over some of the saltiest and funniest tournament moments is in order.

Content creator Crowbcat recently put together a hilarious montage of such moments from roughly over the last six years. We remember entertaining bouts such as that between Wolfkrone and K-Brad, the villainous Filipino Champ taking on Kane Blue River, Woshige's epic Evo stand up, and plenty more.

That last one is worth a closer look before you head into the video to relive it. The event was Evo 2015, the game was Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN, and the bracket was whittled down to top 8. Ryuichi "Woshige" Shigeno faced off against Ogawa in a hard fought battle, and wound up taking a round in very charismatic fashion.

Amid the excitement of winning a smaller battle, Woshige lost sight of the overall war in that he stood up to celebrate not realizing there was still another round to be played. His opponent showed zero hesitation in immediately pulling out his most hard-hitting combo and absolutely melting poor Woshige's life bar before he was able to regain control of his character.

Woshige is an absolute beast of a Guilty Gear player and served on Street Fighter 5's development team as the Battle Director, but it's clear he wrestles around with rushing through things with a bit too much haste at times.

There are a ton of nostalgic moments just like this one in the video compilation below, so give it a watch through and then hit us up in the comments to share which were your favorite FGC memories and why.
