With no sports and no sports betting going on, it’s hard to find anything that can have that kind of magic. With the influx of Twitch streamers, most of them playing the same shit, it’s hard to find unique and entertaining streamers. Well, there’s a fucking great underrated streamer many don’t know about that rekindles that betting magic. TheGreatTeacher. He streams CPU tournaments of Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3, where you can bet fake coins on matches, with odds and everything. Usually, he’ll post on the video game section of 4chan asking random people who they want in the tourney character-wise, then the tourney begins. Its DBZ CPUs beating the shit out of each other, what’s not to love? The AI can get super fucking wacky and it leads into some hilarious occurrences, bad beats if you will. (I wish I could embed these videos but Wordpress doesn’t play well with Twitch clips)
There are legit upsets, especially if you know DBZ and how strong certain characters are. If you can get those bets right, the coin economy will fucking crash.
What’s special about these streams is the sheer number of characters in Budokai 3. Tons of characters from OG Dragon Ball, DBZ, the DBZ movies, and GT (this was made before Super but we’re not missing out on much). Minor grunt characters who received maybe like 5 minutes of screen time in the show are fucking adored by the chat, such as Frieza henchman Appule and King Piccolo goon Tambourine. Then we got the powerhouses you probably know. Ultimate Gohan (who the chat loves for being a Chad), Frieza, Cooler, Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta and Goku, and Broly, who is perhaps the most dominant fighter in these tourneys thanks to his ridiculous armor. The list goes on and on.
I wanted to personally mention this specific fight and the main reason why I wanted to blog about this. This is a 2v2 tourney and its pretty late into it. Its Frieza and Cooler (who are brothers if you didn’t know that) vs two completely random characters. Those ended up being a Super Saiyan Great Ape (its a GT thing) and Hercule aka Mr. Satan (the weakest character in DBZ history). I won’t spoil it here, you have to watch it yourself. The fight was absolutely legendary, and enough to make you consider watching more of Teach’s streams.
