Celebrate Early At EVO And You Will Probably Lose Like This

by Christian Belland on Jul 20, 2015 at 10:05 AM

EVO is the world stage for fighting games, so don't expect any mercy –  especially when you celebrate a little too early. Woshige learned this lesson the hard way during his fight with Guilty Gear Xrd "god" Ogawa. Take a look:


Woshige ties up the match with flair, then shoots up from his seat to raise his fists in premature victory. A little showboating probably wouldn't have hurt Woshige too much, except that the next round started before he was even back in his seat. Ogawa proceeded to tear up Woshige's defenseless character in a little over ten seconds.

This year's EVO came with a string of interesting stories. Read about a now infamous Killer Instinct match, or check out the newest Street Fighter V character announce.
