GGPO SSF2T/SSF2X USA vs JPN Invitational Tournament

Description:

We would like to announce: The USA vs Japan GGPO Invitational Tournament hosted on GGPO that will take place on 22nd / 23rd June, 2013. Organized by delatroy, osaka-pizza, and FWN and presented by ST Revival and Arkadeum, top players from each country have been invited to battle it out in a solo, character-locked, first-to-three, double elimination contest where a ”best-of-the-best” champion will be crowned.

To ensure connection quality between the two countries, USA invites were restricted to players residing on the West Coast given its relative close geographic proximity to Japan. Players from Australia, South Korea, Taiwan and the rest of the USA were considered but were ruled out on inadequate latency grounds to ensure a quality experience for the majority of the participants.

Time & Date:

June 22nd Saturday at 20:00 California time

June 23rd Sunday, 12:00 (noon) Tokyo time

Livesteam & Coverage at Twitch.tv

We are very proud to have Sergjiev via Arkadeum and hazi via hazi_ch on-board to provide live streams on the day in both English and Japanese for each of their respective audidences! More information about our media production will be announced at a later stage.

Tournament Type & Rules

Solo
3 / 5 (FT3)
Double elimination
Character lock.
Akuma is banned.
No macros/turbo/autofire.
If two players cannot connect, they may try to connect via Supercade. If they still cannot connect, a coinflip will determine the winner.

Confirmed Participants

Participants will be revealed as we near closer to the tournament date.
Shhh... ST in da house!

    I think this is awesome. BUT, I think you should change the name of this tournament to West Coast US vs Japan to be more accurate. Don't mind me, I'm just salty beacuse I and many EC players can't participate. :-(

    I'd love to see the EC play as well but lag always destroys everything online. :(

    My ultimate GGPO tournament would be a worldwide King of GGPO! With minimal lag... ;)

    I know what you mean Kuroppi. It's just the competitor in me that is not happy about this. I appreciate everything you guys do and you have my support 100%.

    Also, this is really delatroy's FWN's and osaka-pizza's tournament, so they deserve all the credit for setting this up. And Sergjiev for graciously streaming it. I'm just helping promote it. :)

    I think EC should take on the UK guys. Their ping should be comparable to WC vs JPN.

    On paper I tend to agree though if he gets a bad match-up he could be undone. He was out of the top 3 in Hazi Cup 1 & 2 so it's definitely all to play for.

    One of the Japanese players I played on Saturday said that I should join this US VS Japan match. I had no idea what he was talking about until I saw this thread...

    so how does the order go. For Cali to stand a chance I think you guys really need to take advantage of who's good at what match ups. Dngrs has to take on Shotos, Kuro vs Hydlide, Mongolo or Evo vs Baramis, Ultra Combo is good vs rog also. Omen vs Embryo etc etc

    Also I think most of the players should bank on going for a take the life lead then run/play super conservative strategy. Absolutley no aggressive/fancy play allowed. Use as much safe shit as you guys can and no taking risks. Especially early in the match

    It's already been agreed upon that it will be a standard double elimination tournament. I think next time, we'll try to do a team battle format.

    mysterious, hazi, shun, and hydlide. As long as kuroppi can take those guys out. I think the rest of us can keep pace with them to make this battle close. Seeing as how kuroppi actually played in japan twice, offline, this shit is in the fucking bag. I'll physically show up to serjivs house for moral support, but i'm 63% sure that I won't even need to play as kuroppi will blow the whistle and conduct the rape train on these suckas. don't under estimate the US just because the last 2 wars we fought in where for monetary gain and had no moral standing what so ever... oh shit, NSA at my hous
