EVO 2015 contender cheers his victory too soon, loses

Never celebrate a victory if you can’t handle it, folks. During a semi-final Guilty Gear Xrd match at the EVO 2015 gaming tournament this weekend, fighters Owagazato and Woshige found themselves in a fairly close competition. Owagazato had already won the first round of a best out of three and was on the verge of winning the second.

However, Woshige scored a major comeback and claimed the second round for himself. He jumped to his feet and cheered on the crowd… forgetting that he had a third match he had to compete in. Owagazato took advantage of his opponent’s mistake and started the fight without him even sitting in the chair. Woshige rushed back, but the damage had already been done.

Owagazato won the match, and Woshige slumped into the runner-up bench. He eventually won third place in a follow up match. Ogawazato’s victory was no fluke either as he won the final match and the entire tournament.

It’s okay Woshige. This happens to the best of us.
