It looks like there will be a series of 3on3 tourneys in the near future. It was mentioned on a recent Game Spot Versus stream. I happened to be in Tokyo last week on some business :) and saw the flyer in the elevator at Versus. Here is a picture:

It's great to see a big event being planned even though Coop Cup was last weekend. We can use this thread for any updates. I look forward to seeing some videos or a stream.

    Manga cafes are the shit. For 3000yen, you can sleep there all night, take a shower(for 500) and then spend another 500 on some ramen and snacks. Unlimited drinks, aw yearh~

    vandark, you should hear a cool pherai story from me one day then. Add it to all your history. I'll probably remember it closer to EVO time and just retell it to the forum when I'm probably going to re-tell some more anyway. Its not the glory hole one though, that one's too legendary. You probably know more about that than me.

    yeah tokura was fucking shit up left and right.

    I totally would have done that, but my tickets are so cheap this time that I don't even have the right to do that. Can't really complain for that price though...

    if i remember correctly , 3 really good teams are
    tokura - aiku - pierrot
    matsuken - jirou - yakkun
    tm - m o v - boss ?!
    not 100 % about boss,though

    first match is team ebara / tk / sugiyama vs team kazuya / mimora / teppoudama ?

    鉄砲玉 beats ebara,tk and sugiyama

    2. Boss(YU/KE)/Tominaga(MA)/Tarou(UR)
    3. Rikimaru(CH)/Kaeru(DU)/Boo(AL)
    3. Tokura(YA)/Ike(DU)/Pierrot(RE)
    5. Nuki(CH)/Seikun(RE)/Taihei(UR)

    *Boss used Yun in blocks stage but change to Ken in Final 8

    Team RX and team MOV didn't make top 8 was ridiculous.

    hismit, I thought the Dudley on Tokura's team was 'Aiku.' :)
  • hismithismit VietnAmazing Joined: Posts: 434
    I know but Aiku's ID on his Twitter is "Ike" so I go with that :)
  • Fran3SFran3S Joined: Posts: 790
    yeah , just like with shao / xiao
    using their twitter handle is a good idea indeed

    naitsu is one of the most spectacular yun,very creative GJ combos / setups
    nice to see him again

    i wonder if the 3 winners at the end of MANIAX will get a spot for tougeki (cc-style)

    I'm pretty sure one of upcoming MANIAX events would be used as a Tougeki qualifier :)

    Where were the top dogs at?

    80% of the players in that Top 8 are top players and veterans(TK, Mester, Spellmaster J, AFM, RX). Just because Nuki, Boss, Kuroda etc were probably not around doesn't mean that any of these guys in the Top 8 are pushovers.
  • SesshaZLSesshaZL 春麗 豪鬼 Joined: Posts: 1,028
    I didnt mean it like that....perhaps I shoulda just asked where nuki, boss and rikimaru were at....

    Right, sorry for pointing the finger like that. Just trying to bring awareness to the rest of the players, not trying to attack you or anything.

    Nuki was probably commentating the event, Boss/Rikimaru were probably working or something, and Kuroda rarely ever joins events that has Nuki in it. lol
  • IglooBobIglooBob Bob the builder Joined: Posts: 4,039
    so Kuroda still plays? I haven't followed enough but I always hear about people talking like he's retired or w/e.
  • akuaku スピリチュアルやからね! Joined: Posts: 3,865
    He was in the last Touzaisen, playing Necro. A lot of people seem to agree on one thing: his Necro's not good and he needs to switch to another character. haha

    How popular are games like 3s and CvS2 in Japan? Are they as niche as they are in the rest of the world?

    I'm guessing games like ST and guilty gear are the most popular old school fighters
