I much prefer Kamke over Soeda. Kamke at least has something to bring to the table and is a real viable player.
With that said, he's as inconsistent and erratic as it gets, so no surprise the guy with no weapons who just makes guys beat him and does nothing else wins here. Kamke is up there with the best of them when it comes to self-destruction.
Sums up Kamke really. He's just overhitting most of the time. On good days he makes marginally more than he errors, but most of the time he's just a 50/50 merchant and tends to beat himself against anyone who can defend.
