One of the hardest working Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo Guile players in the US, Markus “Marsgattai” Gibbs, has given a great interview over on fighter101.net. Marsgattai gives his take on a number of subjects — what it’s like to be dedicated to “old-school” FGC games in 2017, the importance (or lack thereof) of frame data in his game-play, and his opinion of Street Fighter V as a SSF2T player.

For Marsgattai, the moment he felt he finally reached the next level just boiled down to actually going to his first offline event:
“For me, I was really addicted to playing back in the hdr days. I would get up in the morning or early am just to fight Japanese guys on ranked (…) After a while, I thought to myself I should try it out and see how I do. Funny, I think going to my first event (NEC 09) was one of the best decisions I made because I met some of my best friends at that event.”
