@Haregoro Interview part 2

The second part of our interview with Haregoro, the first of our player interview series, covering his experience at Evo…

Did you miss part 1 ?

EVO

EVO is now a long time ago, but it makes for a good question: what can you remember most?

The EVO period was a really satisfying. I didn’t make it into Top 8, but we won the 3on3 country matches held in the Korean lounge.

EVO was such a great time. I wasn’t not able to make it into top 8, but I still had a great time enjoying a lot of matches including the country 3 on 3 tournament in the Korean lounge which we won, and it was also great to be able to make exchanges with the overseas players though fighting games.

But the thing that I was really happy was how everyone supported me on my participation to EVO. Before I flew off to Vegas,ON|Myu and a bunch of my fighting game colleagues made me a group card that had comments of support written by everyone. The renowned Orochinagi.com also rooted for me and supported me as a sponsor. A lot of other people also cheered me on, and it was because of everyone’s support that I was able to enjoy EVO as a fighting game tournament and also as a vacation experience. I really appreciate it!

Did you feel a difference between Japanese and overseas players?

Yes I felt a difference. I was amazed at how overseas players in general were consious about anti-airing in terms of playstyle. It was like, “seriously– you hit me out of my jump at that timing?” It definitely left me with an impression that they’re good at defense. Also, they’re really tenacious on their second set and beyond.

 What did you think about the money matches?

I didn’t get to play a real money match during EVO so I can only talk from presumption, but when you’ve got money on the line and your reputation as to who’s the stronger player is also being counted, things are going to be seriously tense compared to casuals.

Who impressed you most at Evo?

I don’t know what his name was, but the guy that I fought right after the pools (the guy before I fought Fox) left a strong impression on me. His team was Flame Iori, Karate, and Shen. It was a really tough match, but I beat him. After I sent him to losers, he beat Ogosho and also gave Koukou a hard time. So again, he left a big impression on me. Within the top 13s though, it would be Fox.

Have you studied your match versus Fox?  What do you think about his level? What do you think will happen next time you meet?

I watched the video of my match and it made me recall the mortifying feeling I felt back then. I think Fox is a player who has the strength to win at EVO. His Chin was quite the real deal. But if I ever get the chance to fight him again, I am going to win no matter what!!

– EVOから数ヶ月経ちますが、どのような思い出がありますか?一番楽しかった記憶、嫌だった記憶などありましたらお聞かせ下さい。

EVO期間での時間は本当に充実した時間でした。結果こそベスト8には行くことができませんでしたが、韓国勢の部屋で行われた国別3on大会で優勝できたり、多くの海外プレイヤーとゲーム通じて交流を持つことができて対戦を楽しむことができました。

ですが本当に嬉しかったことは、EVO参加に伴いみんなが応援をしてくれたことです。ミューさんを筆頭によく遊ぶ格闘ゲーム仲間からはラスベガスへ向かう直前に応援メッセージが書かれた寄せ書きをいただきました。

あのorochinagi.comさんが私のスポンサーについてくれて応援してくれました。他にも多くの人達がエールを送ってくれました。みんなが応援してくれたからEVO期間で過ごした時間を格闘ゲームの大会として、海外旅行としても楽しむことができました!

本当に感謝しています!!

– 日本のプレイヤーと海外のプレイヤーで違いというのはEVOで感じましたか?(感じた場合)どのように違いましたか? 

感じました。プレイスタイルの話ですが、海外プレイヤー全体の対空の意識が高さに驚きました。このタイミングのジャンプを落とすのか、という感じで。守りの固いイメージを植えつけられましたね。あと2戦目以降の粘り強さが目立ちました。

– EVOでマネーマッチと野試合では、どちらの方が勉強になったと思いますか?その理由は何でしょうか?

マネーマッチだと思います。私はEVO期間でちゃんとしたマネーマッチはしていないのであくまで想像になりますが、お金も賭けてるし単純に対戦相手との格付けがはっきりするので野試合にはない緊張感があるのではないでしょうか。

-EVOで一番関心したプレイヤーは誰ですか?

プレイヤーネームがわからないのですが、私がプールを抜けた直後に戦った相手、つまりFOX氏と戦う前に戦った相手です。チームは炎庵・Mrカラテ・シェン。かなり苦しかったですが、なんとか勝利しました。彼はルーザーズに落ちた後もオオゴショさんを倒し、コウコウさんも追い詰めてました。ですからとても印象に残るプレイヤーでした。また13位以上のプレイヤーだとFOX氏です。

-EVOでFOXとされた試合はその後見ましたか?彼のレベルはどう思いましたか?また対戦できたとしたら、今度の結果はどう予想します?

 見ました。あの時の悔しい気持ちが蘇りました。FOX氏はEVO優勝を狙える実力のあるプレイヤーだと思います。特にチンの強さは本物でした。ですがもし次対戦する機会があったら勝ち越します。絶対に!!
