I was curious to see what quality the FGC has when it comes to media sites currently. With Eventhubs/Shoryuken being two of the more known sites, what do you think of these sites?

I joined Shoryuken.com in Dec 2003. It was a pretty good site. Very focused on gameplay rather than costumes. Sometimes they take themselves too seriously though (as if they were all about to win a tournament every week), which is the reason I haven't been there for a year or two.

Eventhubs, I've never looked at the boards, but they have some good data on character usage for SF4 and earlier games. I think they focus a bit too much on linking "news" stories on other sites.

Are you getting annoyed that your comments are always being downvoted on eventhubs because everyone knows you're crazy?

i dont think either is very good anymore

sadly the best option for fighting game stuff has been discord for a while. I personally hate discord b/c it's just a clusterf*** of information from a ton of random people who may or may not know what they're talking about, so finding anything useful is a nightmare. But, that's how it is now so it's what you gotta deal with

if you're looking for news, those two are probably fine, though eventhubs is getting more and more clickbaity by the second and always has predictions and fake 'leaks' and all that, so you again have to sift through a ton of useless junk to find anything meaningful

I know what you mean about the discord channels, not always easy to find what you need.

Has anyone found a good place to get combos guides and strategy in Google docs or an easy to read format? Some YouTuber's are nice enough to do this but I'm wondering if there's a good repository of info.

It depends on the fighting game. Some have tools that others don't. What are you looking for?

Well I play SFV, SC6 and DBZF. SFV has a pretty robust training mode and really helps finding out what's plus/minus. I usually watch combo guides and character tutorials on YouTube but I always appreciate well written documents that explain everything in detail.

i'm a big fan of sajam's match analysis videos

they aren't specifically character guides, but he always goes into a ton of detail on the matchup and small decisions, which often involves going into character specifics if your character's in the match. and you learn how to deal with characters if they're not
