This drawing came about while doodling in pen on a small notepad next to the phone.
I ended up liking it so much i scanned it in and lay down some colours.
Think it ended up looking like those old-school stickers on the Alpha 2 arcade machines with instructions on how to play the game.
Abel n Adon are my TURTLE KILLERS!!!
For those who don't know 'Turtle Play' or 'Turtling' is:
- a play style that emphasizes heavy defense, utilizing positioning and safe moves to slow down the pace of the game and minimize punishable mistakes.
A turtle takes no risks and engages in no unnecessary action.
Ever had a match where you opponent crouches on the other side of the screen and just sits there, waiting? Thats a turtle!
Here is a Disgusting example of 2 turtles in a Tournament match in Japan [link]
Unfortunately Turtling has become wide spred since the release of the SF4 series.
This is due to the defensive nature of the game and the general step back in the SF2 direction, in the sense that the game has been striped back to the basics, with the edition of the focus.
Most of the turtles i come across are scrubs, that turtle only because they lack the offensive skills it takes for high paced technical game.
The few that do possess actually skill and still turtle is a total mystery to me...
How can you hold your head up high after winning, when by winning you cowardly run the whole match waiting for the clock to time out?
So for those who feel no shame in turtle play, just remember, you run but you can't hide from my TURTLE KILLERS!!!
I imagine this post with ruffle a few feathers, so if you disagree, please, discuss.
