Big Two 12/7/11 predictions

Tomorrow (Dec. 7, 2011), the Big Two returns to Next Level in Brooklyn, NY.

Fresh off Northeast Championships (NEC) XII, players such as Chris G, Noel Brown, Hiro and Dieminion will look to nab first place finishes in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (AE) singles.

So with all the talent participating in Big Two tomorrow night, who will take home first place spots post NEC XII?

In we go:

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Despite taking home first place in UMvC3 teams and placing second in singles, Chris G has a thorn in his side. In fact, he has two thorns, PR Balrog and his arcade stick.

In the final round of UMvC3 singles, Chris G had PR Balrog in a combo. Looking to follow it up with a Shinku Hadoken, Chris G ended up triggering a Shin Shoryuken that whiffed and cost him the tournament.

As always there will be stiff competition from the likes of Noel Brown, Ray Ray, Liston, NerdJosh and Dieminion. Unfortunately for them, they will have to deal with a Chris G who is out for revenge. I see a focused and determined Chris G taking UMvC3 singles.

Prediction: LB NYChrisG

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition

It's become apparent that Dieminion is in a class of his own at Next Level when it comes to AE. He has finished first place in all three Big Two tournaments. While I would like to say fourth time's the charm, I don't believe it will be.

Approaching Dieminion's Guile is a daunting task. Just ask KDZ who used Abel at last week's Big Two tournament. Sure, KDZ reset the bracket, but Dieminion proceeded to sweep him 3-0.

Despite top east coast AE players like Chris Hu, Aquasilk, and even Chris G, I still think Dieminion takes AE singles for the fourth week in a row.

Prediction: Dieminion
