Stupendous is now known as the last of the Red Cyclones. With Zangief’s substantial nerfs in Season 3 (and 3.5), people found it hard to stick with the character, with many opting to swerve to Abigail for their big-body needs. Stupendous, however, stayed the course.
In this interview with BornFree at NorCal Regionals, Stupendous talks about his career in fighting games — which only started as a result as friends making a pact with him to train four days a week, improving his results. He also talks about his frustrations with Zangief’s issues since the patch, and how Abigail has stolen away the talent from the character.
