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 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 the qualifier remains 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.

The Box Arena has plans to stream the qualifiers at http://www.twitch.tv/theboxarena
Shhh... ST in da house!

    You better win this Papercut, you got WAY too close at the Super Arcade qualifiers, if anybody can make it to the big show it's you.

    You got this. All papercut knows is how to fight Ryu. He has 0 exp vs other characters. Even Ken can beat him.

    Evil Nemesis.... Shit just got real.

    This is our first encounter, but it won't be our last.




    This is our match for the title of Champion of the Universe where he defended his title for the 2nd time. I eventually took the title back, but that match wasn't recorded.

    Nemesis, our battle will be on a level of epicness that hasn't been seen before. It needs to be held in a venue appropriate for its grandiosity, like a stadium or something.

    I might go. It been about a year since I touched this game. And just about three since I played it seriously. I certainly am no legend. So, I expect to get rolled...But, I love the game.
    Am I hungry? Sure, I could eat...
  • eltroubleeltrouble Joined: Posts: 5,722
    Possibly going, depending on me and Tania's schedule for that weekend.
  • KuroppiKuroppi くろっぴ Joined: Posts: 891
    Fatboy is going. We're going to get him in tournament shape after this weekend! ;)

    Someone from up north better show up so it's not just us San Diegans!

    Several of us are interested in going, we just gotta work out the carpool situation.

    Not going to lie, I'm primarily willing to drive down there just to get some experience against Kuroppi and Zaspacer. I feel too comfortable in those matchups, and I need someone to make me think otherwise.

    When I whip out my secret character, people are going to start pulling on my face to see if I'm someone else wearing the Mission Impossible mask disguised as me.

    Inside joke. Only Kuroppi knows what I'm talking about. ;)

    I like how in ghost protocol the phone doesn't self destruct properly and Tom Cruise has to go back and tap the phone to make it blow up. I thought that was clever.

    Is the tournament going to be played on emulator, cabinet, or?
  • KuroppiKuroppi くろっぴ Joined: Posts: 891
    It will be played on a cabinet (Kurocab). And there will be Japanese and US controls available.

    DGV will be bringing a supergun, as well as a MAME emulator setup for casuals.

    The venue will open at 10AM.

    Thanks to Bob and the Box Arena guys for running this great event. I think we inspired some of the SD guys to get more into ST. Box Arena crew (Frank Fresh, Kuizzy, etc) we'll more than glad to help you guys get an ST station going :tup:

    It was awesome chilling and eating with all of you guys....can't wait to head back to SD...China Super Buffet Special Edition Turbo owns!

    Congratulations Mike...time to make plans to take out Tokido! =D
  • DNGR S PAPERCUTDNGR S PAPERCUT Joined: Posts: 1,608
    Thanks to everyone that was watching. GGs to everyone I played, especially DGV, pushing me to step up my game. Hope to see everyone soon, maybe the SD guys could come up to super arcade some time.

    Tokido is on my hit list for sure. It's time to go in the lab and do some work.

    Thanks to Kuroppi and The Box Arena for organizing the ToL qualifier down in SD. I think it's awesome that you guys are continuing to show love for the ST community. SD definitely has some strong players, and I hope the number of ST players continue to grow in your area.

    Congratz to Papercut for earning his spot in the ToL. He's definitely stepped his game up in recent months, and 100% deserves the spot. DGV played as deadly as ever, and he looks to be in prime condition to also represent Socal at Evo this year. Big shout out to Digital Infamy, who played on fire during the tournament. The dude has also improved as well since I first met him, and I hope he plans to attend Evo this year and go for broke at the last minute qualifiers.

    Big thanks to fatboy for showing us China Super Buffet. The food was delicious, and surprisingly pretty cheap for a dinner buffet.

    I had an awesome time playing in the tournament, practicing up at the casuals station, and grabbing dinner and hanging out with you guys. I look forward to seeing you all soon.

    GG's to everyone this weekend... Had a good time overall. Thanks to Kurroppi, Zaspacer,Fatboy and all the other SD Fellas for making it a good gathering...
    I first met Zaspacer on XBL Hyper FIghting back in the day and we always had classic matches. Good to know he's still on top of his game and we still had some classic matches. Would have liked to stick around and chop it up with you guys after but i had other arrangements planned. It was really an SD vs LA tournament. GG's to all.

    Congrats to my boy Papercut... well deserved man...
