Devastation 2010 SSF4 Results

Devastation 2010 concluded over the weekend, and while there were many other games, the SSF4 tourney was notable in that the Top 8 finalists were composed mostly of characters that normally do not see top 8 finishes in majors. 

We had Marn's Dudley win it all, beating Valle's Ryu! And there were some strong finishes by Juicebox Abel, Combofiend's Guy, Buktooth's Ibuki, floE's Juri and NinjaCW's Makoto! Plus Filipino Champ's Dhalsim and Mike Ross's Honda! Definitely not the usual top 8 roster. Anyway, for guys like me that like seeing non-top tier characters do well, this weekend was quite a breath of fresh air. 

The game is only a few months old at this point, and I know that one tournament does not a standard make, but I hope that this is a harbinger of things to come at EVO, you never know, Yeb beasted in vanilla with Gen, and we've seen Inthul's Fei Long do well in Super. 

Is this the year a Dan player wins EVO? Watch out!
