Double Tap #159: Tier Formality

February 28th, 2020

Tier list, bad event rules, Winter Brawl experiences, and new game changes. CrashTag and Mezza talk updates and changes as well as reminiscing on the past a bit in the fighters Corner. European release of Granblue gets a date but finds itself running into to a halt with the collectors edition. NetherRealms keeps it rolling as they show a special Ed Boon tweet of Spawn and possibly more than anticipated. SnK puts the bow and arrow to the test as they officially release Mina. Bandai gives a slight early release on Kefla, and the patch notes are covered quite vividly by the team as they are in shock with some of the vast mechanical changes.

Team Ninja isn’t looking so hot, but their new character arriving is all about the hot weather and so are the new 40 plus outfits to be released. Randoms of the FGC talk releases, Intel’s new rules for SFV tournament, and Dekillsage digs in deep with NRS community’s mentality towards their own game. The Focus Attack shines some light on Tier list and the misconceptions, but also thoughts on different ways to look at it. The Road Warrior segment is all about Mezza’s discomfort with Winter Brawl 3D and more.

Video gaming runs in his blood and competition plagues his mind. From the earliest days in the now extinct arcades, to the eSports competitive scene, he looks forward to the next game to test his skills. No stranger to rising salt levels.

Got his start gaming with his two cousins and brother at his aunts house. They had to always play in secret, but he fell in love with fighting games when he got his first taste of an arcade in Maryland. Now looks to grow the community.

I've been playing video games for a while now. I enjoy racing games, RPGs, but spend most of my time with fighting games. My first goal was to get better than my brothers, but now I strive to be better than most while also teaching others.
