GameSpot Versus Weekly Battle

I attended the weekly team battle held at Gamespot Versus arcade off the Nishi-Nippori station in Tokyo, this past Tuesday.

I heard things would start around 7PM so I got there around 6:30 but I found out that signups would begin at 8PM and the team battle would start around 9PM. So that gave me a lot of time for casuals. There was only one person playing on the six head to head setups so I played for a bit against him. A few more people started showing up so it was a little weird, not knowing anyone there so I finally talked to the guy I was originally playing against. He turned out to be Nakamura Cammy so that was a pleasant surprise. I asked him about TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS and showed him the flyer that I had and he wasn’t aware of it. He took me over to the front desk and introduced me to Nikaiten, who was in charge, and Tonegawa Cammy who was also there. They both knew of ToL and Nikaiten was happy to post the flyer up for me. I talked to all three of them for a while and Tonegawa invited me to join his team for Gian Recital on May 5th. I happily accepted and look forward to the tournament!

More and more players started showing up and I started recognizing some big names, like Kurahashi, Hiroyan, VIPER, Nidaime, etc. I wasn’t too familiar with a lot of the players but the skill level was very impressive from everyone in general. We eventually drew cards to determine teams and once we had our teams, we chose our team order. I wasn’t sure how playing in a team tournament would be but it turned out to be a lot of fun, rooting for your teammates and there were a lot of great matches along the way. I won’t post any spoilers so here are the videos:

Gian Recital


We would like to eventually work in Japanese ST news so here is a big ST tournament coming up, the annual Gian Rectial.

This year’s Gian Recital will be held on May 5th at Mikado in Takadanobaba.  I haven’t seen any stream information yet but if I do, I will pass it along.

Your’s truly is in Japan for a couple of weeks and Tonegawa Cammy, who I met at the weekly GameSpot Versus event this past Tuesday, was kind enough to invite me to join his team to participate.

Box Arena Joins as a TOL Qualifier!


We are happy to announce that The Box Arena will be joining as a TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS qualifier!

When we expanded the finals to 32 back in February, we had made unannounced plans to run a qualifier at Team Madcatz Championships in San Diego, which was scheduled to take place last weekend. After the announcement last week that TMC would be postponed until after EVO, we were approached by Box Arena to move the qualifier to their location at Frubble. Frank Fresh, the director at Box Arena is an avid ST fan and Box Arena became the perfect choice to replace TMC, as Frank wants to be a part of the ST revival, they are the premiere fighting game group in San Diego and we get to keep the qualifier in SoCal, as originally planned.

The Box Arena qualifier will take place on Saturday, June 2 at 2PM. The qualifiers will be $20 to enter and is standard ST tournament format:

Double elmination
3 out of 5 games.
Akuma is banned.

Box Arena has plans to stream the qualifiers at http://www.twitch.tv/theboxarena

Reminder about EVO’s Last Chance Qualifiers

It seems like there is still some confusion out there to some people so just a reminder/clarification to everyone that there are two separate Last Chance Qualifiers at EVO, with the top two from each qualifier advancing to the Tournament of Legends finals. And everyone is welcome to enter these qualifiers and everyone gets to participate at EVO. 🙂

Since a lot of the really heavy hitters will have already qualified (AfroLegends, Damdai, DGV, Valle, the Japanese players, etc.) these qualifiers will be completely up for grabs. We think there will be some incredible matches as players battle for those last prestigious qualifier spots.

Also, there may be additional qualifier spots added to the EVO Last Chance Qualifiers, if there any problems with qualifiers/invites unable to attend.
