i wanted to see an American win so bad but its good to see Tokido finally get his, Guys like Punk and Du are so young they will get their time. of course you also have guys like John Takeuchi who are going to keep holding it down for Japan. Cant wait for evo 2018

Fighting games, in my opinion, have the best entertainment value out of any esport or any regular sport. The emotion, hype, community, and pure skill involved with the sport is something of pure excitement. I have never cheered as loud for baseball, I have never cried over the raw emotional impact for football, I have never jumped out of my seat in awe from a play for basketball, but I have done all these for EVO tournaments. People think that playing video games isn't a sport, but they have never seen an EVO tournament.

It was all because of the taunt combo. Then punk tried to stun tokido to finish him with a taunt combo but tokido made sure he didn’t press buttons.

This is the most beautiful moment of EVO history. Tokido’s victory gave the people so much hope. Even when he had lost his chances over and over again, he’d never given up. He learned from his demons and moved on forward. His career goes something like this, “Hope is what makes us strong. It is why we are here. It is what we fight with when all else is lost.”-Pandora ❤️ Because it’s not about who’s the best. It’s about how much hard work and effort of emotion we give and hold onto in the game. That is why we love you Tokido! Messatsu! 🔥

I guess Tokido got Punk on his nerve :) Because Punk made so many mistakes right there and he wasn't being himself.

Lol why was fchamp pictured when it said good players eliminated
Freddie Wompton (2 months ago)
I mean, maybe because he's a good player? If you don't like him, that's whatever, but don't you dare detract from his ability as a player.

What's the music track that starts at 10:29 and 11:17. We need them as the BGMs in SFV. Epicness!

https://youtu.be/DjyX2TzZVBs?t=821 Look at this shit. Karin Already crossed him and yet Akuma still got the hit. X0.25 speed to see how BS that was. Crossing in this game is just stupid.

Sako Ibuki SF4 AE Topgana Leauge no set loss run. That man is one of the 5 gods who is the ? character choice in fighting game. Putting characters like her, Cammy, and Evil Ryu on a heavy spotlight.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a year he made top 8 in like every main stage game at EVO?
Shaun N Ince (2 months ago)
Fraydizs Back in the day, he played a lot of other fighting games. And got Top 8 finishes in those one's too.

I’m surprised they didn’t mention how Tokido struggled and that he might not have won evo had capcom not put Akuma back in the game.

Tokido’s greatest moment was defeating the mighty DSP, best US player of that year.

and then, he stood to challenge his master, Daigo Umehara But Daigo still out of Tokido's reach
JackgarPrime (3 months ago)
12:04 This was the moment the match was really over. Tokido had totally mindcrushed Punk with that taunt combo. Not to mention he totally stole the crowd back on to his side with it.
JackgarPrime (3 months ago)
I was so happy when Tokido took the title. Sure, it would've been cool if an American finally won. But I always cared more about players than nationalities, and Tokido was one that's been a favorite of mine for years. Yet he was always just a breath away from hitting that top spot. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride, as the saying goes. And he did it with the character he's iconic for.

IM CRYING AND IM A SMASH4 PLAYER LOL But seriously this is probably one of the greatest videos EVER that I’ve seen. Thank you for being on this planet to bless all of the FGC with amazing content. I’ve been getting into Tekken, and I enjoy watching SFV. Simply an amazing community, everyone crosses into each other’s games and I can see the competitive fighting spirit. “Fighting game is something so great.” Yes it is Tokido. Yes it is.

Tokido is great player no doubt Too bad SFV is such a letdown and a boring game to watch
MrTrellheim (3 months ago)
Tokido's spectacular victory had the consequence of breaking Punk and shattering his aura of invincibility. Sure, he had lost before (I recall two consecutive defeats again Snakeyez on the grand finals of two tourneys) and he kept winning after (although mostly minor and local tournaments where most of his foes weren't on the upper levels), but never with such a hopeless defeat. The absolute hurricane he was on the first half of the year disappeared and his latter half was... average, which is a thing Punk is not at all. His Capcom Cup run was unremarkable (although not as bad as Infiltration's had been the year before) and it remains to see if he can recover for the new season to take his rightful place in the SF pantheon.
