So what?, ain't that true?, of course these Pakistan guys outperformed him, but first they are all way younger which is a plus when it comes to brain and reflexes, and second, I don't think they play all the roster like Knee does, let alone have the balls to probe it at events where $$$$ is the thing.

Are these guys good?, of course, but they still have a looong long way to achieve what Knee has achieved due to the fact they are still young, and aagin like Ronaldo's example I used before, the numbers they still don't have in order to prove it.

We still need like a decade or so to come to conclusions. Until then, Knee is the best and most complete tekken player the scene has ever seen.

And don't tell me I'm using this post as an excuse to look down on Arslan, Awai or whoever, if you wanna have healthy conversation with me after this. I mean.., Dodecadozen wasn't excusing him too, but oh boy facts are facts. The first one is very clear age/generational gaps, and second but not less important, "ocupational hazard" caused by time doing the same thing.

Hail to the new generation of youngster to dominate the scene?, hail, but again until at the very least one decade has passed and we begin to gather and analize numbers, Knee will still remain as number one.

Fernandito has spoken. Knee-L


i am not even telling that you are making excuses regarding age. i am not even pointing about what knee achieved. i am just pointing the absurd excuse. what i told is Dodecadozen telling that knee did not want to win is an absurd excuse.

speaking of age at recent tournaments, knee has beaten a young strong player like ulsan, but has trouble against strong pakistani players. knee in his tweet mentioned that the reason pakistani are very good at tekken is cause of its popularity in pakistan(arcade scene). late at night and there are still 20-30 players at pakistan playing tekken at arcades. tekken used to be big at arcades in korea.

all time ranking(knee is arguably the best). but the current best player is arslan. and with opportunity given to these pakistani players, they are showing the world how good they are.
