If there was a Scrub League (WMSL) who'd you put your money on?

#1 Posted by MannyMAR (434 posts) -

Saw Internet Steve talking about training in 3rd Strike on twitter and got me thinking about the duders doing a Scrub League for this game. Now I don't know if this game will ever get the scrub league treatment, but I know if there ever was one I know Jeff will most likely be top dawg. The only other who might give Jeff a run for his money may be Alexis or possibly Brad.

What are your guys thoughts on the matter? Think Jeff will be Office Champ or who else in the Whiskey Stable may have potential Daigo-like skills?

Ben because he has experience in grappler characters and characters like Hugo and to an extent Alex can work for him.

Brad

I don't want to watch the WM office struggle with a technical fighter.

I would go with Coonce because I think he was the most into SFIV, and played it the longest. I know that III is a different kind of game, but I'm guessing he would still do better than most. Don't know though.

I would be so happy if they did a sf3 scrub league. I love the idea so fun to watch.  
 
and if he played Jeff would win, hands down.

Assuming Jeff would not be eligible for the tournament, I'd say Alexis judging on his Mortal Kombat scrub league performance. He seems to know what the hell he's doing when it comes to fighting games.

If Jeff is in the tourny him if not Intern Ben because he looks like Hugo and thus must be good at that character.

Ben because he's good at movie trivia so...he could also possibly be good at fighting games too? I mean, movie trivia couldn't possibly be his only skill, could it?

Alex Navarro will return to the Whiskey Media offices and show off his Makoto skills.  Yup!  It -totally- makes sense.

Jeff seems to be the king of Street Fighter in the Whiskey Media office.

He might not be comfortable with SF3's feel as opposed to the more wide SF2 mechanics. But I dunno, he is playing it now.

i don't see why people keep saying that a 3rd Strike Scrub League would suck because 3rd Strike is to technical.  I don't play fighting games and when I tried 3rd Strike I won against people who exclusively play fighting games and have played this game before.
 
If anything I'm a scrub and I was able to do alright.  Why would it be any harder for the WM guys?

Jeff.

Coonce for the upset, though.
