Fanatiq planning on being the best he's ever been for EVO 2013, says playing fighters is where his heart is

Fanatiq planning on being the best he's ever been for EVO 2013, says playing fighters is where his heart is After winning his exhibition match against CJ Showstopper at CEO 2013, Loren "AGE|Fanatiq" Riley had some candid words for his fans on stream.

Riley stated that he misses fighters and losing at the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 singles tournament at CEO helped that fact sink in — that he's not where he should be. Riley said that playing fighters is where his heart is.

He added that he's mostly done playing League of Legends for now, and really wants to focus on fighting games. Fanatiq also said that he feels he's not in the shape he should be in regards to fighters, and that he's still dropping too many combos, but he plans on changing all of this around in time for EVO.

Fanatiq is well known for exhibition matches, but he said that in the future he really wants to focus on tournaments instead.

Riley also thanked his fans and family, and stated he really wants to help the FGC grow.

Sometimes portrayed as a villain in the fighting game community, it was nice to hear Fanatiq open up and discuss his plans for the future and what he hopes to accomplish. This is a great interview if you can take a few minutes to sit down and watch it, after the jump.

Slasher: ChrisG is like the Yankees or Miami Heat, people hate him because he wins

Slasher: ChrisG is like the Yankees or Miami Heat, people hate him because he wins It is no secret that AGE|NYChrisG is a name on the lips of many players and fans alike in the fighting game community today. Most prominently known for his success in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, ChrisG's Morrigan, Dr. Doom, Vergil team has left a trail of bodies in its wake and single-handedly changed the way tournament level UMvC3 is played.

The Penny Arcade Report put together a piece on the best UMvC3 player in the world right now, AGE|NYChrisG. The article touches on his rise to glory, his indisputable talents in modern competitive fighting games and why some people seem to cast him in the role of "villain".

Well known-members of the fighting game community such as eSports GameSpot journalist Rod "Slasher" Breslau and UltraChenTV cohost James Chen weigh in and provide a few statements on ChrisG's current status.

Below is a snip from the piece to get you started.

“It's not just him winning,” said GameSpot's Breslau. “It's him dominating completely over everybody. Street Fighter is probably the biggest game internationally, but America loves Marvel. That is America's game. And America gets pissed off when the same guy wins over and over. People had the same feelings toward Daigo. It's the same in sports; people hate the Yankees, people hate the Miami Heat. I think that's why people hate him, because he wins and then he talks trash and then he wins and then he talks more trash.”

“On top of that he plays a [character] roster that is really annoying not just to players but to spectators because of the amount of fireballs and things on the screen it just feels like it can never be beat. Morrigan's fireball spam and zoning is off-putting to a lot of people/spectators,” Breslau continued.
