Just got done watching the Japanese Cooperation Cup, which is a really interesting Street Fighter 3rd Strike tournament where the entire tournament is teams. The first day is the really interesting one to me, in that the teams are comprised of just a single character, so Team Q is comprised of 5 Q players, Team Makoto has 5 Makoto’s, etc. It’s a really interesting and fun format of one-and-dones where you get to see lots of characters and MU’s that you might otherwise not see at a 3S tournament.
So my question is this: if there were to be a KI Cooperation Cup, which character teams do you think would be fire to watch? Which would you think would be the favorite to win, which would you like to see go far? For simplicity’s sake, let’s just make the teams be teams of 3. Who would you like to draft for your teams?
What other Kim’s are there/have there been? True, these are Storm’s selections, but the only other player i’d make a case for with Kim Wu might be Bastfree.
I’ve played sets against two of the three players listed; i feel those two to be strong players in their own right. The third i just know to be a strong player.
Are the listed players capable of delivering exceptional KI in a format like from the recent 3S event? Sure. Are the listed players either exceptional specialists or innovators for the character? Sure.
-shrug- I know other Omen’s, but in general I tend to like them more on alternate characters, the way I still like your Omen more than your Kan. It’s why even though Nate has a Fulgore and a (very good) Jago, I put him on the Omen team, or why I placed Bass on Team Spinal rather than Team Shago. Yeah, I could put Letalis on Team Omen…but would I really want see Letalis’ Omen compared to his Aganos or Raam? No. No I would not.
@TheNinjaOstrich Bastfree is the only other Kim I’d bounce your for. There aren’t that many Kim Wu players, and of the ones I’ve run into I think you’re up there in terms of skill.
If you wanted a Team Kilgore @FallibleJoker14, you’d probably have to pull people off other teams, or maybe have a team with two Japanese players. Sleep and Kalypso have tournament level Kilgore’s, and Ret and Domy both do as well.
