Samurai has long been one of the strongest Street Fighter players in the US. However, to the surprise of many, his Akuma carried Team Storm when his captain’s main was banned in Season 1. When he wasn’t destroying the competition with Akuma, he proved he had capable secondaries with Sagat and Karin. Samurai gets a second chance at winning it all in Season 2 and he wants to show he can beat anyone, while helping his teammates improve along the way. Helping others is rewarding for Samurai but maybe not as rewarding as OCV-ing his opposing teams four times in a row in S1.
