Congratulations to Reynald! Pretty sad to see Woo take second place after doing so well up until Grand Finals. Woo had a really cool playstyle that I love to watch. I hope he's back next year!

Woo looked kind of sad before the last couple of games. He did a great job getting that far and he was absolutely good enough to win so i'm sad that he seemed to lose his composure at the end but that's life.

Grats to Reynald.

Woo's situation during GF is a good reminder of how mentality plays a large part of playing fighting games on a big stage.

Comebacks like that can happen a lot of times in tournaments, especially during grand finals. Sometimes you can get mentally fatigued with all that stress on your shoulders...grand finals is pretty much an endurance match to the end.

Overall, Evo finals was really hype. I would've liked to see how things would've turned out if more Mexican players showed (BALA, Koopa, Kula etc) but I guess we will know next time.

Congrats to Reynald for winning EVO this year!

My favorite moment was when MadKOF lost to Reynald, therefore, Reynald's Revegeance was triggered.

I started to feel bad for Woo later on. He looked like he was going to have a heart attack most of GF. Nonetheless, great job to Reynald on winning KOF for America.

Congratulations Reynald, you were SO HUNGRY and it paid off. Your confidence never seemed to falter even among a sea of killers.
Kick, punch, it's all in the method. Not mother approved but totally kid tested.

This was pretty hype, but I wouldn't really call this a win for America in the sense that there is a huge gap in skill between Reynald and everyone else in the US. The US very much so need to go "back to work" as the topic suggests.

As for the grand final, as good as Reynald played, it looked like it was the pressure and the crowd that really beat Woo...he was so mentally strong in all of his other matches but the moment Reynald made that comeback in the third match when Reynald was losing 2-0, everything turned around. Definitely looked like Woo was going to get a heart attack.

If anyone has ever deserved to be an EVO champ, it was definitely Reynald. He put in the work, he made it happen. He had a difficult uphill battle, pulling off what MadKOF did last year, and even beating him!

But I think all the players did excellently, and it just makes me more excited to see KoF again at EVO next year!
