    Who are the real guitar hero pros?

    igame4money

      There's a site out there promoting it's Guitar Hero professionals.  They've got Prod1gyX and Starslay3r playing in some jackpot tournaments.  I saw Prod1gyX get beat up by Tehtrueog last night and I'm just wondering...I know Prod1gyX made it into the Guiness Book of World Records and all and Starslay3r is hot, but are they really the best around?  I can't beat 'em but Galaxy4Gamers is looking to pay out some serious money if anyone can take them down.  Anyone out there on level with these guys (and gal)??

          I've never even heard of your guys. Check scorehero.com the people that are at the top of the leaderboards are the people you wanna look at.

            Starslay3r is good, likely a lot better than I am, but also very marketable. Given the choice between a great player who happens to be a hot girl and a great player who happens to be the stereotypical "neckbeard", the hot girl is the one that most people - especially guys - will want to watch. In short, sex sells. It's not her fault, though, so I applaud her (Ecstasy too) on riding the gravy train.

             

            I'm surprised Bill Simmons hasn't coined "Professional Gamer Hot" yet. Might have to e-mail him that one. I dunno.

             

            And yes, many of the SHers at the top of the leaderboards for any of the main games could probably beat these people. It's just that very few people have the kinds of opportunities that Starslay3r and the like do.

              I wonder what it would take for one of us to qualify in one of those runnings. Maybe we could roll a vote around on who's the best guitarist, bassist, singer and drummer on this site.

                Why are the expert + drummers allways ignored in those tournaments.

                  Because anyone who's played Guitar Hero long enough knows that expert+ is really glitchy, and I mean REALLY glitchy.

                    Because it's guitar hero. People are always gonna pay more attention to guitar players.

                      I have actually met up with StarSlayer at the last two PAX's. She's a really cool chick and I managed to luck out and have a friend who was already friends with her so it wasn't awkward introducing myself. In PAX 08 she beat me in GHWT on assassin (this was a week or two before it came out so it was basically my sight read) but in PAX 09 I was the only person to beat her all weekend

                        i still think Guitar Hero championships actually mean nothing... its pretty much about who's the best player that qualified...

                        i mean, if i happened to be better than these champions it still wouldnt matter cause i probably wouldnt ge the oppurtunity to challenge them... if you know what i mean

                            now, if only you were on Wii...

                              Depends what you mean by pro. I play about an hour a day and I"m comfortable with the difficult parts as much as I am with the standard stuff, but I don't string it together perfect.

                               

                              I think anyone practices enough they can beat anyone, at the end of the day when you can both FC it comes down to timing which is anybody's game.

                                        Ive seen prodigy play and he seems more like a drummer than a guitarist. Either way I am positive I can beat him. As of star, Im pretty sure I would win that battle as well. I know it sounds like Im talking a lot of **** but for proof you can check out my youtube. www.youtube.com/user/gamephr33k13

                                            I'm good, but I'll never be among the best I don't try hard enough and I don't feel like making GH my life like those guys.

                                              Has anyone played Guitar Hero online (with chat) and met a trash talker, only to kick their ass consecutively? I have GH on Wii, so I don't have the chance to witness a moment so beautiful as to see some little **** dumbstruck at some class-A pwnage.

                                               

                                              Also, yes I know no one plays GH songs WHILE chat is on... but that might have to happen for this situation to go down. It would be worth it in my opinion.

                                                Yeah, this has happened to me in more than one situation.  One time, this dude was so arrogant and all before the game started saying he was going to annihilate me.  I never use my headset so I didn't respond.  He then chooses TTFAF and then as soon as he saw me FC the intro, he quits.  That was just hilarious...

But I had a similar instance back before I got GHWT don't remember how many years that is I didn't get WT until a bit before GHM came out, I played someone in Raining Blood and when I FCed it up to the outro solo they quit that's not as GTFO noob as yours but I still think it's funny when someone quits I don't even quit when I'm losing (which is usually only when I play against someone that's on a lower difficulty). I like it when someone plays on a lower difficulty and loses though  .
