Claiming that Bald Ryu did not use techniques is completely false. He obviously used some foot technique to dodge and ki manipulation to use his hands as shield. Even the punch he threw to tank Gyu Bum's punch was obviously the Soul Crushing Strike.
Just because the techniques were not mentioned does not mean they were not being used.
But damn, 2 weeks till we find out what happened to them after the explosion!?

Baldy wasn't going to just beat up the guy he needed a favor from, but he also wasn't going to let himself get owned by an inferior fighter. So he fought to match Gyu Bum. He dodged every attack he could and countered those he couldn't. We're never going to see something as silly as this:

He was at 60%.
Nice catch bro.

http://mngacow.com/The-Breaker-New-Waves/68/6/ By that figure someone just playing strictly defense, even against someone stronger shouldn't be touched. It also must be said, that you can't base attack power from defensive prowness.
http://mngacow.com/The-Breaker-New-Waves/161/6/ later we see Ryu avoiding the Red Star's punch and then using a counter elbow which Yi Gyu Bum avoids, http://mngacow.com/The-Breaker-New-Waves/161/8/ I don't know why your pulling numbers out of your ass and stating them as fact, but there is no evidence to be that confident in your claim.
Baldy's attacks were warnings, at best. If he really wanted to hurt Gyu Bum, he would have used some of his named techniques; y'know, like the way Gyu Bum was using his. But alas, neither his Gale Wind Destruction Strike nor his Chaotic Heavens Destruction Strike made an appearance, and he was still able to deal with Gyu Bum's efforts. The difference in power is only inconclusive if you're reading the manga with blinders on.
Ok, baldy was at 65%. That's my final offer. You drive a hard bargain, I'll give you that.Quote:
^That's just lunacy. I know this idea of half speed is popular in manga, but it isn't reality, no one has a 50, 60, 65% limit switch, and this manhwa has never shown a fighter thinking in those terms. Yet some how you have calibrated character sight. Telling me he hasn't used his big techniques means nothing this was a skirmish not than a fight, yet you can divine the power difference between the 2 characters. I don't think so. Logic is also against you, Yi Gyu Bum is not the only Sun woo there, if he's that superior, incapacitate him and force the weaker members to take you to the Gaju. I'll take blinder off when you show can confirm your gamer reading ability.

Baldy has nothing personal against the Sunwoo Clan, so approaching them all guns blazing was unnecessary.
Since it's going to take 3 more weeks till we find out what happen....
We can't really claim that Gyu Bum is on equal footing with Lone Wolf after this chapter. We should expect him to have the edge since it is quite conclusive that he is a master of the BHET on the level of 9AD(with 9AD edging him thanks to BOT and all 9 arts). Even Gyu Bum was surprised to see how Lone Wolf defended against his attacks.
This fight on the other hand showed a clear blood hound chasing! lol Gyu bum was hungry for revenge and rightly so. Yet his Full assault resulted in this....A stalemate, from someone not trying to kill him....I dont know how you can say they were equal from this really...
I'm guessing you think mamun-gi and GMR are equal in skills as well? because their fight was cut short by the author with no side dominating and then mamungi recalled that this is GMR is he was fighting and he knew he knew he was outclassed and stopped. When viewing their fight, no side was given a clear advantage and GMR was not even serious hence why mamun-gi could keep up. basically GMR was just going with the flow until he got pissed or serious enough and I'm sure he THEN would have fucked mamun-gi straight up.
This is the exact situation.
In any case we probably won't come to an understanding on this issue but we can at least agree how painful these two/three weeks will be without the breaker...time to brace myself for the withdrawal

This will answer some of the other respones. Think, who did lone wolf display all those high level techniques you mentioned on? Shioon a week after his ki center was restored and he was in bot state with limited ability. He was so limited that he stood watching lone Wolf attacks to learn them, and he made no effort to block or evade. Everyone on the roof during, the school was awed by Ryu's strike, yet Ji Gun was able to shake it off and hold him at bay, which allowed Shioon to escape the roof. I know Ji Gun is not Ryu's match, but he's not Gyu Bum's either. What i' ve seen is the more complicated the skill the harder it is to land. You need to soften your oponent up with your superiority with the fundamentals, to set up the big hit. It is rare when you see a fighter land a superman punch or round house kick at the start of a fight; the other fighter has to be a scrub or dazed from another technique.
I also don't get why, Ryu couldn't subdue him with his skill superiority? Who says he has to hurt Gyu Bum to show him he's stronger. Gyum acknowledged his skill, but it took Dae San requests to get him to halt. This manhwa has spent a great many chapters telling us that the weak acquiesce to the strong, and that master fighters can sense the differences in ability. That didn't happen. It seemed to me that Ryu was given a good deal of skill inflation without having proved it. All we know is, he was the strongest SUC captain, and he stomped someone GMR beat in the tournament and scatter regular clan soldiers. It's hard to take the captains seriously when Shioon was able to defeat Cool Guy twice before his ki center was restored.
Didn't it give you pause when even after that acknowledgement, Gyu bum was still ready to go?
I've read this story five time at least , so I don't get why you think I would think mamum gi is equal to GMR. Mamun gi clearly says he's inferior. I didn't make anything up, I just don't see this as cut and dry as you guys do. Holding back in my view isn't guessing an effort lvl, it would mean not doing moves on a lower skilled opponent that could land them in a compromising position or not using a finishing move they would be unfamiliar with.
