Don't Celebrate A Tournament Win Until You've Actually Won

After losing the first round during a best-of-three semi-finals match against one of the best Guilty Gear Xrd Sign players in the world, Woshige pulled off a massive comeback to take the second. Then he turned to the crowd to celebrate.


Never turn your back on the competition, especially if the competition is Ogawa, often referred to as the “God of Guilty Gear”, and certainly not when there’s still one round left in the match. Despite his godhood, Ogawa doesn’t think twice about using his Zato to beat the living shit out of an unmanned Milla, and by the time Woshige realized his mistake it was all over.

Still he did manage to pull off a brief upset against a player widely considered the best in the world with the entire EVO audience watching. If that’s not worth celebrating at the proper time, I don’t know what is.

Tournament result spoilers follow.

You have been warned.

Defeated by Ogawa in the winner’s semi-finals, Woshige managed to pull it back together enough to advance to the loser’s final for Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, losing to Nage but securing third place in the tourney. Nage’s opponent in the grand final was Ogawa himself, who once again earned his godly title, walking away the winner of the EVO 2015 Guity Gear Xrd Sign tournament.

Guilty Gear Xrd Sign is secretly my favorite game at EVO, but do not tell anyone.
