In either case, I appreciate the giant middle finger towards Capcom.

Plausible enough.

I can't even explain it with SNK being in Chinese ownership as a) it was a vote and b) Tekken 7 and the bottom right is Blazblue I guess are in there so it's not like there weren't any foreign games allowed.

When I look up footage of KOF tournaments the players are either Chinese or another non-Korean/non-Japanese Asian like Vietnamese or Taiwanese. Any idea why that is?
I don't have a clue. On the American continents it seems like the Mexicans are especially fond of KoF.
Decided to google this now:

http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/why- ... 853.0.html

Seems to be two main reasons:

1. Easy as fuck to bootleg, and since the countries Latin America and China aren't rich that helps.
2. Neo Geo Arcade Machines were really cheap and swapping out games was easy and cheap. Again, in those countries having a low barrier to entry helps.

That explains why more developed countries don't give a fuck. I had a feeling it had something to do with availability since the Sega Megadrive was very popular in Brazil for the same reason.

Meanwhile in China, at the biggest fighting game tournament of the nation, SFV got BTFO by KoF. How BTFO?

You're seeing that correctly. No SF around, KoF got voted top slot and then two more KoF for good measure. :lol:
That's what happens when you take Capcom money and shills out of the equation. A big part of the english-speaking FGC are just SFV shills at this point.

Don't try to understand Capdrones. They just have to talk up every shitty thing to keep their EVO spot.
And now it's even worse for that because of how big money has finally noticed Street Fighter. The shittiest version of street fighter and this is the version they all need to play faithfully because big money is in the game.
