    Just SIX days remaining for X-Mania USA & ToL II online registration (ends June 30th). If you miss the online registration deadline, you only have 8AM-9AM Friday morning at Evo to register and onsite registration jumps to $30 per player for X-Mania USA and $50 for ToL II.

    NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

    If you don't have a team for X-Mania USA you can still pre-register online and find a team at Evo or be assigned a team before the start of the tournament.

    X-Mania USA pools are filling up fast. Only seven team spots remain before the bracket caps. If you have a teammate who has not registered, get them to register or register for them. If the bracket caps, you'll have to find a new teammate.

    Unfortunately, Nakamura has had to cancel his trip to Evo. We will add a seventh pool for ToL II qualifiers.

    That's very sad. Because it's Nakamura, and because it was the only opportunity for many to see a Cammy like that.

    Arkadeum will be streaming @ www.twitch.tv/arkadeum

    As always though, 4G access is real unreliable at Evo but we will try our best to have the stream up. If we are unable to do so, the matches will be recorded.

    Awesome. Yeah I can't imagine streaming through a cellular data channel would be anywhere close to optimum.

    Damn...I was looking forward to him the most. I love seeing lesser uncommon characters used by elite talent.

    BE AT YOUR POOL ON TIME. The schedule is very full and we cannot delay pools waiting on players. YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED IF YOU ARE NOT AT YOUR POOL ON TIME.

    For X-Mania USA, if your teammate is not there, YOU WILL HAVE TO PLAY WITHOUT HIM/HER.

    Vega in #1 spot for both, no surprise.

    I didn't want to believe it but it appears the Japanese are still way ahead of the US in ST. Can't help but give props to MAO though. What a monster. He has to now be considered the #1 undisputed worldwide champion of ST.

    Any news of archival footage of the ST tourneys? Or Salty Suite action?

    Hey I got to catch a little of X mania, which was awesome, but completely missed TOL II. That was by far the thing I wanted to see the most in the entire tournament. Is their a vid of this somewhere?

    I think Damdai and Afro are definitely Japanese-level, but MAO and the others are so far ahead of the game. Just from a brief weekend of hanging out with them and talking to them, they know so much more about the game than we do, and hopefully the future interviews will showcase some of that.

    We definitely need more stronger players from the US scene to help push each other to get to that level. It's possible, but difficult. We don't have the advantage of gathering the country's finest to play at the same arcade every single week like they do in Japan, so we'll have to rely heavily on communication, teamwork, and practice to close that gap.

    Wow, I guess good players have trouble using SRKs on reaction, too (Cammy VS Zangief). Feel better about that, haha.

    Nerves and tension tend to slow up hands, even for the best of players. Very difficult to control at times.

    I watched most of it, and it was at least 600 most of the time. Even during world cup 3rd place game. The Japanese used another link, so we can't know the overall amount which watched the event.

    Such a great show with the tournaments Kuroppi! Such a long list of dedicated contributors working together to make it all happen. I watched it all live and was impressed to see the stream hold up with the limited bandwidth Sergjiev had to work with. Good job to all the Arkadeum stream commentators, and it was great to see so many people. I think it is good to get many people because it makes it feel more like you're there. Huge shoutout to MrTuttle!

    Thanks to you Kuroppi for all your hard work, for being such an instrumental figure in reviving ST at EVO, and for bringing us such awesome tournaments! お疲れ様でした!

    Looking forward to more hype next year!

    EVO 2014 Xmania Finals Full 3 v 3 Super Turbo SF2
    Team Japan 2 vs Team Special Forces starts at 48:25.



    Many thanks to Kuroppi and everyone that brought us ST at EVO this year.
    So many Japanese players! I still can't believe they came out.
    MAO with the swag! LOL
    I was hoping to see Kusumondo and Kurahashi (blue Ryu), too bad they didn't make it.
    Anyone know if any of the Japanese players will come out next year? Assuming ST at EVO comes back.

    Kurahashi : jab (black) is my original ryu’s color but in japan people start copying me so I have to keep changing (now it’s fierce). This tournament is special for me so I go back to my original color in tol2

    Wait, so this Kurahashi (Jab Ryu) is the same as the other Kurahashi (Fierce Ryu) is the same as the famous Guile player Kurahashi?
    I thought it was 3 different players with the same name. LOL

    Hanasi teaching tech monkey how to beat chicken wing with upkick - kara cancel a low forward into upkick, the low forward will make chicken wing whiff. he demonstrated it with a success rate of 1/4. it's not easy but when you get trapped frame tight and not much life left this could be your way out.

    Nice.

    at 6am when we're about to shutdown the salty suite, hanasi and noguchi demonstrated how to do the neg edge DP/block OS. He said if you can pull it off, you have 1/3 change of getting a reversal, 1/3 blocking the dive and 1/3 getting hit. During the demo he can pull it off 30-50% of the time.

    How do you do this?
