A good pop-off is like the icing on the cake of a super-tight, mega-hype reverse-sweep. There's nothing quite so infectious as the uninhibited joy of a fighting game player jumping up and down while hurling insults at the guy he just bodied.
So in honor of this noble FGC tradition, here are our picks for the 10 best pop-offs in fighting game history.

SykoSteve Gaming it's funny because I first came across of who LTG was through one of Max's video titled "is max killing the FGC" and some of the comments were talking about LTG so I looked him up and well you know the rest
Smash is a fighting game and has a community so therefore is part of the fgc. There’s no need to seperate it from the “fgc.” Respect the people who have worked so hard to make it into the fighting game that we all love and treat us like equals for once.
smash community is very different from the fgc. Very few people who play smash know the figureheads of the FGC such as John Choi, Alex Valle, Yipes etc. And same thing goes for the FGC, outside of the "Gods", member within the FGC know nothing about smash. There is very little overlap among player bases. This is the major reason for the divide, Leffen being one of the rare instances where someone can be dominant in both communities.
Friendly reminder that EVO and plenty of definitions of the genre say otherwise. Smash is a fighting game. It may not be traditional, but it's a fighting game nonetheless. And don't say "it's a party game". Games can fall into multiple genres, which Smash does.
I'm mad at how badly this video misrepresents a player I respect. Axe is doing nothing like "rubbing it in" Silentwolf's face. He gets his energy from the crowd and shows a ton of respect to his opponents. See that hug he gives SW at the end? The set had been extremely close up until that point and that's Axe acknowledging it.
This video shows no understanding of the narratives behind the clips and spends too much time narrating instead of letting the clips speak for themselves. The made-up story they tell about it is also way more generic and forgettable. Soulless. This is what makes people worry about going esports instead of staying grassroots.
They've always kinda been two seperate things, I think the closest they are to being the same is just the fact that smash tourneys are also hosted at these events. Beyond that the two communities mostly stick to their groups.
I wish you'd included ESAM's win over Ally at Civil War. Hype and creativity are definitely important, but the cinematic quality of ESAM's pop-off, owing just as much to the cameraman's presence of mind, is something so rarely seen.
Wait a second... I just realized that the title says "FGC and Smash Bros History"...
Do y'all really not consider Smash to be a part of the fighting game community..? Seriously, lmao.. you could've just removed the extra part with Smash and had the title be that but no, there has to be a distinction..
Smash and the general FGC have a rather bizarre history. The long story short is that they are not the same community despite the MANY similarities between the genres of the 2D fighter and the platforming fighter.
This is signified one simple fact, the two communities have separate tournament circuits... Evo (or APEX) happens to be one of the few places that the communities meet in one place, other than those few (and there are others that I have yet to mention like Canada Cup) the circuits don't interest at all. The same can be said for the players, few from Smash transition to a 2D/3D fighter and I have yet to hear of an FGC player that has moved into smash full time.
Shows how little research they really did... Calling Axe, probably one of the humblest players in the community, one to pop off arrogantly. Called Evo, "Evil"... Like, at least try to sound convincing....
all they want to do is rub it in their face as deeply as possible? what? did we watch the same footage? axe was super happy, but he kept it really respectful. no need to twist the facts for the sake of sensationalism.
Just so we're clear. A game in which you "Beat up other character" does not make it a fighting game. By that logic, every hack n' slash ever made is also a fighting game. A fighting game has very tight concepts and rules to them, which do no apply to Smash, to be frank.
razrsrealm The only one who seems like an autist, is you. You have no arguments despite someone telling you, that it is not a fighting game. It is not a traditional fighter, true. But a platform fighter. You can not argue with that.
Next time if you argue with someone you should stop throwing insults at their face and instead get your arguments straight.
Sorry, still not a fighting game. I don't mind the game smash, but you smelly autists can stay very far away from the fgc. Sakurai said so, Harada said so. Making bank off of your retarded delusions doesn't mean you're right lol.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee for the Nintendo GameCube you beat up other Nintendo characters. So it is a game where you fight your oppononet. Simply put: It is a fighting game. Any game where you beat people up is in fact a fighting game. Even "Gang Beasts" is technically a fighting game.
We don't modify the game in tournaments. We had to add an actual good training mode (with 20XX). We use the base game in tournaments.
We change the rules ingame to get a balanced recreatable competitive environment. No items, no stage hazards.
You sound like one of those FGC-elitist, who "defend" their precious genre with all their might not realising that opening up their mind can improve the community as a whole, because if you treat fighting games which are not SF 2.0 like shit, this community will not grow at all.
It is true that Smash was not meant for competition but this has changed. With Smash 4 we get balance patches and even proper 1v1 online action. Looks like they are seeing that both casual and competitive players enjoy the game. And I bet you enjoy it as well. Stop being so ignorant towards other games and communities.
MMMM BAP BAP BOOM BAP HOOKS IN ASS BOOP BOOP BAP MM MMM MMMMM HE IS GETTING WASTED BOOP BOOP BAP BAP BAP BAP MM BOOP BAP BAP OH MY LORDD BOOP BOOP BAP BAP BAP BOOP MMMM MMM MMM MMM SHOUTOUTS TO THE STREAM MONSTERS IN THE CHAT.
I fucking love Yipes.
Any athlete who's worked with their soul to achieve a stussy ass victory will pop off, fining or judging them for that is retarded. And I consider high level game players to be athletes, because it requires the same amount of dedication if not more since you aren't held back physically, so the meta evolves much quicker therefore you have to put more time in. And this is coming from a sports dude who cant play fighting games for shit, I just respect the dedication and hard work of these dudes. And the crowd pops are the greatest things ever
dating sites that you think of where users sit down at a computer and
message their boo for hours on end. These are usually aimed toward more
serious relationships with extensive questionnaires, intelligent matchmaking,
and significantly more features than app-only services.
The Best Dating Apps
If youre not sure about which dating site you should sign up for (AKA spend
money on) or which app to
download, testing them out for free first is a great idea. But for some
dating apps and sites, the free version may actually be all you need. Facebook isn’t the first app to experiment with dating based around
events. Coffee Meets Bagel, for example, recently paired up with Sofar Sounds to
host live concerts where its users can meet in public. Tinder also announced
Places this summer, letting users browse potential matches based on where
they mutually go. Cialis improves erection and helps to achieve a successful sexual intercourse. The treatment for
erectile dysfunction (ED) was revolutionized with the development of phosphodiesterase type 5
(PDE5) inhibitors. Tadalafil (Cialis®; Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis, IN, USA) is the newest and
most versatile PDE5 inhibitor in the clinical armamentarium for the treatment of ED. Its most unique
characteristic is its long half-life of 17.5 hours, which lends itself to a longer therapeutic window
with on-demand dosing and effective steady-state plasma concentrations with once-daily dosing.
Clinical trials have proven its safety and efficacy with both dosing strategies for all severities and
etiologies of ED, including difficult-to-treat ED. This thorough review will discuss ED, the physiology
of penile erection and the role of PDE5, and all aspects of tadalafil, from its development, through its
pharmacology, to its latest clinical studies and indications.
True to its word, POF has the highest number of users in this list. The
site has 40 million users (fish). You get the full package for free but

POF is the fourth most visited dating site in the world.
