welcome to the R squad, our big bullshit website about bullshit. make yourself comfortable and grab a lil something warm to drink, or fuck off.

quick intro to saltybet

saltybet's a livestream that doubles up as a fake-money betting site. the idea is characters for this fighting game engine called M.U.G.E.N are randomly picked 2 at a time to beat the tar out of each other. you get a 40 second period where you can bet as much of your pretend dollars as you want on either the guy on the left (red) or the guy on the right (blue). then they fight and after that whoever bet on the winner gets awarded the cash, or salt like the chatroom calls it. it's a pretty fun way to kill time.

M.U.G.E.N's big thing is it's a 2D fighting game that anyone can go out and make characters, music and stages for and all that created crap can be spread around the internet, downloaded and chucked into your copy of the game. and you've got to understand M.U.G.E.N was a pretty big deal back in the day, so there's plenty of custom fighters and shit floating around.

that's the big draw of saltybet. the bloke running it keeps a custom copy of M.U.G.E.N going 24/7, and every year adds more characters and stages to it from all around the web. there's not too much discrimination on who makes the cut. you can get a 1-for-1 absolute spot-on recreation of blanka from street fighter, versus some slipshod piece of shit recoloured-in-paint sonic sprite that does fuck all but volley laser beams and explosions across the arena the whole two rounds, like it's dragon ball or something. and then there's actual dragon ballers. yep goku's in this. there's no limit to the matchups that can happen, except most of the time they're separated into tiers of how well they can fight for even matches. other than that it's the wild west, you never know who's about to fight what. there's guys from other games, ms paint garbage, original characters, unstoppable satan godkillers that instantly win every time (except aginst other, fuller of shit, bullshitters), memes, jokes and all sorts of rubbish. anything can pop up in saltybet. so i figured i'd sit down and make myself a list of the fighters and stages i've started to like the best.

and now, ladies and fuckers, i present to you...

favorite fighters



a-unagi is a total legend. he's this tiny little blue little harmless-looking cute little snake motherfucker, and every time i've seen him in a match he's pummled ass a thousand million yards into the sea. he's fought gods, devils, titans, the most batshit shit the world wide web can conjure out of its depths, and he's come out the snakey little victor every time i've seen him go. i'm proud of this little shit. what a hero. probably my favorite out of the lot.

MAVERICK ZERO by Ddarkbeing && ariel co


just take in how goddamn sick that sprite is. he looks like he's actually meant to be in a fighting game!

favorite stages

ENDLESS STAIRS by The Immortal


even as a still image this one looks neat, but that's not why it's here. in-game, if you move far enough so the screen pulls left or right, the whole staircase rotates. it actually animates it like you're going up or down the stairs when you're fighting. coolest shit i've ever seen in a M.U.G.E.N stage.
