Far away from the stadiums full of lights, roaring audiences, and sponsored teams of the ever-growing eSports spectacle are enthusiasts gathering amongst themselves for underground fight clubs. Gathered in whatever spaces they can secure for the afternoon, fighters step up to make a name and become local legends. The road to worldwide championship is long and arduous, but it begins with whispered tales of legendary fighting feats in the local halls.
It isn’t a secret that Capcom royally screwed up Street Fighter V‘s launch back in February. From minor things such as the servers crapping out every ten minutes and games frequently not connecting, to the complete absence of series staples such as a single player arcade mode, there were plenty of things for fans to get riled up about. A shame really, as the core game was generally up to snuff and more than capable of providing good times.
