Shoryuken got a picture from a different angle. It's not as awesome as I first hoped. Still though, what a hero.

At first I was like, "Man, he's just gonna walk away? What a poor sport."  
 
Then ^that^ happened, and it was glorious.

@Zero_:@Wunder_: When landing the Raging Demon for victory against Clakey D, Tokido got up and stood in front of the projector. His pose mimiced the pose that Akuma makes when finishing the Raging Demon.

SCR was without a doubt the most exciting tournament this year.  There were so many amazing moments.  This totally makes up for EVO, which was a bit of a snore this year.

Tokido doing that was amazing, but Valle vs Daigo was SO godlike.

It was a classic moment. I think he earned himself a lot of new fans over the course of the weekend.

Best moment of NCR by far. Made staying up to watch it so worthwhile. Some of the best matches ever played at a tournament in that top 8 last night. It feels like every suddenly leveled up.

@Damodar: I had to step away from the stream when that match happened. I haven't been able to find a video of it yet. All I keep hearing is how epic it was. Where can I watch this match?!

Oh, for the record, Tokido had taunted against Justin Wong many times before eliminating him from the tourny, but of course only Marn gets hate for doing the same thing. Damn Anti-Americanism.

Hmm, nerdy? I pretty much took it as the most alpha male thing you could possibly do, other than maybe ripping his shirt off and exposing a giant tattoo of the akuma symbol.

Marn gets hate for being a fat slob who likes to show off a bit too much. And I'm sure he's like part-Filipino anyway. And Justin gets hate for being at the top of the tree.

That was hilarious and awesome. But yeah, whoever said Marn gets hate for the same thing is right. Marn and Tokido are charismatic. Lots of players have a language barrier and lots of people like to think that the Japanese are some kind of methodical and insanely traditional and respective culture. Everyone's the same, they're gamers just trying to have fun. Tokido taunting like that is no different than when most American players do it, and he and Justin Wong are friendly with each other all the time.

@SuperEvilDOOM: If there is anything I've learned from listening to everyone who goes to these events, it's that the only people who take offense to stuff like Taunting and shit-talking are the people WHO AREN'T EVEN THERE. Streammonsters, if you will. The atmosphere is way too good for people to be seriously salty.
