John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero

Assistant Editor

John got a taste for fighting games early in life with Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat, though the latter quickly became forbidden fruit once Mom saw a Fatalilty or two.

Fast forward to 2009 when a chance event led him back into the genre with Street Fighter 4. He would eventually become one of the more notable (only) Gouken players, placing in the top eight of a handful of prestigious events, winning Wednesday Night Fights multiple times, placing in the top 25 at EVO, and even winning a Capcom Pro Tour event in 2014.

Writing has been a pastime since kindergarten, and so EventHubs happens to be the perfect marriage of hobbies for this lucky fan of both the pen and (virtual) sword.

John is also the co-host and editor of the relatively young EventHubs Podcast, a weekly show that covers significant happenings in the FGC with a heavy emphasis on Street Fighter.

He also plays Street Fighter 5.
