There was a lot of upset discussion going into this match, based off of 2005 stats:
Snake has a strength of 36.97.
Squall has a strength of 35.16.
Snake wins with 52.45% of the vote!
A win of 4,945 with 100,996 total votes cast.
Assuming a standard Snake tank-job (happens every year) paired with a potential KH2 boost for Squall, you end with a longshot upset and some noisy fans throwing numbers around. It all made enough sense, but that's.... why they play the games. </Berman>
All talk of an upset died within minutes of this match beginning; Snake took a comfortable lead and ran with it, with Squall giving no indication of ever coming back. In fact the polar opposite of an upset was taking place in that Snake was doing much better than his value prediction, and on a KH2 Squall to boot. This was the first true indication that Snake was on steroids this contest, and we all know it wouldn't be the last. Just glancing at the updater, I think Squall only won one update; that's pretty bad considering how close these two were in the stats.
But from the silver lining department: http://www.gamefaqs.com/poll/index.html?poll=955
Squall increased 8% in four years! Come 2010, Squall might have a chance in a rematch <_<
