Report: Lag affected performances at Evo2014

We caught an interesting conversation between NeroBlanka and someone today.

Someone: Umehara's physical condition was bad at Evo? Why did he lose to John Choi?

Nero: I don't know if I should say this, but the Xbox was lagging. It was worse than online match at my home. I finally got used to it in my third match. Evil Ryu probably took a big hit as you can see the combos dropped.

She also followed by this.

Nero: I couldn't even confirm a combo when I had 2 frame advantage in the 3rd match, although it didn't affect my Blanka much. I wish they restart the console every X matches or something.

Someone: Say to them "I'm feeling the lag, reset Xbox OK?" or something.

Nero: I'll just "NO!NO! In Japan it doesn't count if you can't even confirm 2f advantage" using gestures. (laugh)

NeroBlanka is a Japanese female player who went to Evo 2014.
