I saw that already and it was hype. Seeing Majin win feels really good. Like I said, he's been around since T6 at least, so it's a lot like when Qudans came back to win it all with Devil Jin and suddenly the whole meta of the game changed around that. People always knew Devil Jin was the best Mishima (because he has always been,) but I didn't see D. Jins at tournaments for Tekken 7 much until Qudans. It was all Jack and Dragunov in early T7.

I wonder if Majin winning will cause a bunch of tryhards to jump over to King, lol. But Evo 2018 was super hype for a lot of reasons with regard to Tekken 7. A Panda player made top 8 and maybe top 4 IIRC. Book made top 8 with Jin, my backup main (for when Armor King is not available.) Most of the faggot Jack players were eliminated before Top 8 and only JDCR was using Dragunov in top 8.

Overall, breddy amazing Tekken Evo. Can't complain at all. No Lili, No Bob, No Lars in the meta anywhere. Most of the characters in Top 8 (even Top 16) were not faggot characters.

Tekken 7 Evo was really cool. The whole Jack tryhard shit only came about because Saint won everything with him. Before that, Jack was considered shit. I don't see people replicating that with King because Majin plays King a bit unorthodox. Very nice use of unblockables, pretty rare for him to go with the normalfag bred and butter stuff.
I've watched pools as well and he RDC'd somebody, which was pretty cool as well. When he figured out the other guy can't into grab breaks I knew what he'd do and when he started the grab string I was literally shouting "YES! DO IT TO HIM!" at the screen. He just fucking had to. They both knew, the commentators knew, the croud knew. It had to be done. :lol:

Soul Calibur had some funny moments but I'm just not feeling that game. I'll likely watch the Smash shit next.

Soul Cal isn't going to be as good as SC2, so I don't care about it. Tekken 7 is the only hype game I'm following. I guess Ultra SF IV, but that's a side tourney game. Likewise Central Fiction will probably get kicked out for the cross tag bullshit that I have no interest in.

I won't ever watch even a second of SF4. It may not be the worst SF ever anymore but it's still not good and still not entertaining to watch.

That pretty much sums up every Soul Cal since 2.
