    Who else will take

    Paris, France October 31, 2012
    and
    London, England December 01, 2012

    ?

    Anyone going to these? wolmar / 41i45 etc?

    Grand final will be at December 08, 2012.
    Winner of the London tournament will have a short notice to get vacation days off.
    If you think you'll win, plan ahead
    Thanks for all the updates n info Papasi!

    French cup was a regional qualifier for masters series europe, here is the actual qualifier bracket, same result, well done to Aero!

    The UK event (i47)states there will be a few special guests (last minute japanese for last qualifier remaining?) 41i45 is an alpha3 player afaik. Likely to see ST regulars turn up for HDR (orf,chaosflare,smqclassic etc).

    That's weird. So the winners of the paris qual doesn't get a spot at SF grand final but a chance to qualify in masters series europe?
    So how many spots will the masters series europe provide? We only have 6 players qualified in grand final so far and it's very close to dec 9th.

    Afro Legends - TX (deejay, boxer)
    Damdai - NY (o hawk, o ryu, o ken)
    Laugh - Asia (dictator, o sagat, n ken)
    Tokido - Brazil (claw)
    John Choi - LA#1 (ryu, o sagat)
    shotosallday - LA#2 (o ryu, ryu, gief)

    I guess the original PDF file from capcom is inaccurate. TBH they are quite disorganized for this series of events.

    Aero Rockman (Master Series Europe) is the seventh qualifier.

    The UK qualifier is the one coming up for the last spot. According to some of the French players on GGPO, they aren't allowed to enter the UK qualifier for some reason but they had a qualifier spot for Master Series Europe. Strange.
    Shhh... ST in da house!

    here is the bracket: http://challonge.com/sf25_sfii

    I don't understand why there is a Japan listed. Is this supposed to be one of the LA quals, or is the bracket fake?

    If this is the real bracket, I think it's just an error and Japan should be the other LA qualifier.

    Having the four US qualifiers face each other in Round 1 doesn't seem right though. Hopefully, it will get tweaked before it takes place.

    Laugh and Tokido do show up in the US regularly, and double elimination helps a lot with a small bracket, so it's not *that* bad.
    (Heck, they're running 6 rounds, 1 more and they could just round robin it and go with points... probably not as dramatic though.)

    I'm more excited to see shotosallday vs damdai. That's going to be super hype. Do yourself a favor and do not miss that match.

    This is the bracket that was posted on eventhubs:

    http://www.eventhubs.com/images/2012/dec/05/street-fighter-25th-anniversary-grand-finals-brackets-04/

    So...which is the real one?
  • KuroppiKuroppi くろっぴ Joined: Posts: 891
    I read on Capcom Unity (?) that the brackets floating around earlier were not finalized so this could very well be the correct bracket.

    Edit: That bracket is legit.

    Hehe, the white t-shirt is back, Damdai!

    Lolz.

    That bracket makes more sense by spreading out all the US players. But The only foreign player that looks like he's going to put up a fight is tokido. No disrespect to the other countries, but the 4 players representing US are among the cream of the crop, and 1 of them is literally a legend in the SF2 world.

    Looking at this bracket, my best guess is that an American player will take first. Afro and Damdai have both beaten tokido before. Damdai beat tokido 6-0 I think in one of the east coast majors. So I think Tokido's tournament life will end once he reaches one of these guys. Also he plays shotos first and that guy plays the claw match up very well too.

    Prior to NEC, I would have said that Afro would take Damdai. But Damdai pulled out an amazing looking fei out of nowhere. Not many players here get practice against good feis, so Afro vs Damdai match up is a complete mystery now.

    John Choi is always a threat in any situation.

    Shotosallday on a good day could take out everyone on the list, but he only has 2 tournaments of experience under his belt so that could be a factor. Shotos is a wildcard.

    NOTE: All my EVO predictions were wrong, so I might have jinxed all the US players.

    Choi is going to take it. He seemed to be back on shape on the qualifier.
  • eltroubleeltrouble Joined: Posts: 5,714
    Choi performed very well at the qualifier, but he's been out of practice, and that may end up hurting him against this level of competition.

    Shotosallday is a naturally talented player, but he has limited tournament experience under his belt, but this would be a great place to prove his worth.

    Damdai is the most well-travelled ST player in the States and has a wealth of knowledge to back him up.

    Afro's been practicing pretty consistently this past year, and is always a threat in any tournament.

    I'll have to tip the odds in favor of Damdai and Afro in GF. Of course, I'm favoring Afro to win, but Damdai seems to have put some work into the game lately, and it'll be interesting to see what he'll bring to the table. Either way, it's going to be one exciting tournament.

    Damdai took 7 straight games from Tokido at Seasons Beatings 2011 grand finals. Damdai was in losers and came back to win the tourney.

    Sad that Choi couldn't take it, even though he gave Afro a run for his money. Congrats to Damdai for winning this very convincingly.

    congrats to all players in top 8 since you all got your prize money :)
    and especially to damdai , afro and choi for placing top 3

    one of the most enjoyable matches for me is choiboi vs afro. he clearly displayed that he knows the match and his fast reactions. you'd think that only japanese guiles like muteki and kurahashi who have easy access to local fierce competition could master a low tier character in a unfavorable MU like this.
    I heard that the prize for winning ST was an old car??

    it'll be cool if damdai won a trip to the bonus stage to smash on that Scion FR-S ^^

    ggs and nice to meet everyone there (again) - biocide thrust afro muffinman damdai shotos wicked mongolo darkness mose $100 georam, the other ggpo player (sorry i forget your name) and a bunch of other people

    capcom botched the qualifies since they are inexperienced in running tournaments but i think they redeemed themselves with this grand final. great venues and lots of setup for free plays, cool gifts (very nice tshirt). they just need to axe that sfxtekken game lol.

    also james chen is a extremely lucky guy. he declined the invitation to the arcade since he got better things to do!

    and yeah, unblockable tatsu is hella cheap.

    Huge thanks to Papasi for taking me, shotosallday, damdai, and biocide to the arcade after the tournament and taking care of credits and dinner! I am forever grateful for that level of hospitality!!! Well done to shotos for beating tokido, choi for keeping it real despite the rust, afro for making every match a nail-biter, and to damdai for successfully running the gauntlet.

    It was a seriously awesome trip, and I hope to see all of you guys again! Also, thanks to the owner of Game Center Arcade for keeping it open late and getting down on ST!

    np man. too bad everyone was exhausted after all day waiting. sfxtk is to be blamed.

    everyone is cool offline. iirc after top8-top3 muffinman asked afro if there is anything that threw him off after the first set with damdai. he didn't make any excuses and said he simply lost fair and square.

    btw afro, the group of friends who traveled with you were cheering for you incessantly the whole time (i just happened to sit next to them, they don't know me)
    I bet you had a great time afterwards at the club with the dance and all :)

    Does anyone know why the character sprites look almost perfect on stream?
    When we change to classic sprites in the ps3 setup that they have, they all look horribly pixelated (but not the background).

    From other thread:

    (1) Love to both players. I am happy to have them both participate in the ST community.

    (2) With that said, Damdai won on the *biggest* FGC stage ever. Players/ fans from all over the world were watching the SF25th tournament. No other event will be quite like it. Afro will need to wait 25 years for a run back/ rematch on a venue/event of that size again. And it may be a long 25 years...

    That papasi guy has some deep pockets. Of course, if he buys you dinner he could very well do the same for your mom and, well, you know where this is going.

    Sad that I had to miss out, but glad that there's a healthy rivalry going on even if it is East/West coast. Really keeping the SF2 fires burning alive, guys. Good shit.

    Damdai, congrats...you deserved to win. You played your ass off. I could say I lost because of 3 frames of lag but I don't wanna cause controversy and be a dick. The better man won last weekend, period. This makes for a great rivalry and is great for the game so I'm glad things happened the way it did. I will be back. :)
