They’ve got to push the version they’re actually selling, rather than one they’re not.


#3

Wrong Forum! this is ST!


#4

They only have tournaments on games which have a modern console port. It’s very reasonable for them to do.

Considering that there hasn’t been a decent console port of ST that satisfies everybody, this is the best scenario they can come up with.

That being said, I fully intend on supporting the HDR/ST scene by showing up to the tourney, plus the money ain’t a bad icing on the cake. Let’s show Capcom how dedicated our scene is by supporting their tourneys.

Japan is not in this.

Free to enter. But $20 to reserve your spot (refund when you show up).

It is not clear whether there is a (last chance) qualifier in SF.

Looks like grand final for HDR is only top 8, but the payout they mentioned is top 16. Not sure what’s that about.

No mention of bracket cap for qualifiers.


#6

I thought they had Japan listed as one of the qualifier locations in the original press release a while back.

Looks like they changed it now.


#7

Huge turn-off…


#8

lol…


#9

Wish I’d known that before I just bought it on PSN.


#10

Ps3 version?! Hell no…


#11

PS3 version is laggy and sucks and HDR is lame and afro will probably win but it’s in LA and GFs are here in SF so I’m considering it.


#12

What I wanna know is

Who the hell plays HDR in Hong Kong?

Paris, sure.
Brazil, maybe.
Hong Kong???

Also +1 ew to PS3


#13

Yeah I don’t get that why Japan doesn’t have a qualifier. Unless all the Japanese players fly to Taiwan, which seems possible. But leaving Japan out seems like a huge oversight. Would have been interesting to see who would play HDR in Japan if they did have a tournament. I read there is a 256 player cap so each qualifier going to be pretty significant.


#14

They probably refuse to play that version.


#15

But the payout is so good… I don’t have a ps3 stick though… I don’t know how I can adjust my timing to the insane delay. Hopefully everyone else is just as screwed as I am.

So they’re having 2 people qualify in LA, if I’m not mistaken? There are 7 qualifiers, so one of them needs 2, unless SF has a last chance. Socal is the place that deserves two qualifiers the most, if not LA then NY.


#16

Capcom probably isn’t interested in hearing what the community’s thoughts on this are. They just decided to hold whatever tourneys they feel like holding without much feedback from the actual players. Might have to do with why Seth Killian left? Food for thought.


#17

Most likely. But, at least, now we do not have to play pinball.


#18

So since afro is going, who do you guys think will take second?


#19

My guess is DGV. Both guys actually liked HDR, and did very well in it back when it was a major game in Evo. That being said, a lot of Socal players actually came from HDR, so I’m sure they’d be happy to play in the tourney and prove their worth.

Not sure which players from around the other parts of the US would also do well in HDR.


#20

Do they refuse to play sf4 too or what, there are no quals in japan.

PS3 is also ew
