Now for the best moments in EVO, Fighting game hype man Maximillian listed his five most hyped matches which includes the now famous early celebration of Woshige in Guilty Gear Xrd (not X), the intense match of Gamerbee and Infiltrator in the loser’s finals of Ultra Street Fighter IV, the journey of Kane Blueriver in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 in becoming the first non-American champion and so on.

But there’s also another epic (or rather the not-so-epic) moment that should not be missed, is when Momochi’s fighting stick malfunctioned during the grand finals of Ultra Street Fighter IV, pitting against Gamerbee. It was a very close match, both fighters are tied and in the final match, out of nowhere, Momochi’s Razer Atrox fighting stick just died. Under regulations, in case of an intentional or accidental pause of the game, the win will be awarded to the opposing player, but Gamerbee being a good sport, decided to only take the round instead of the match, unfortunately even with a kind approach, Gamerbee lost to Momochi after he received his replacement joystick provided by Mad Catz. You can check the whole incident on the video below (malfunction starts at 1:47)

Yes, this is how epic EVO is, and we are looking forward to another hype match next year
