Interview with Daigo Umehara at TGS 2014 by Eventhubs

Interview with Daigo Umehara by Eventhubs during the Tokyo Game Show 2014 event, right after the Mad Catz Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament concluded on Sep 21.

Daigo talks about his Evil Ryu tactics and Capcom Cup. Check out the summary here.

- From the exhibition match at TGS 2014, he didn't really go for mid-or-low 50/50 mix-up very often, however he dash forward a lot to push opponent to the corner, as a counter-measure for both regular and delayed wake up.
- Daigo would swtich to cr.MK into Axe Kick instead of Hadouken to avoid possible punish.
- At this time, he is very much just focusing on Topanga League 4 and Capcom Cup.
- If he qualifies for the Capcom Cup, the 2 opponents he'd least like to face are Kazunoko and Luffy. He says he hasn't played that many Rose players as Evil Ryu and Rose character has been buffed, so can't really tell how the match would really turn out.
