The last two qualifiers were held on March 2nd in Paris, France. The same system as in the 1st tournament was used, qualification groups then round robin (best of 7 matches) between the top 8 players to get the final rankings. Someone let me know if there’s any mistake in the results, I’m doing this by memory.
1st: [3rd]Wael - 6 wins, 1 loss - Chun-Li, Ken, Urien, Q, Necro
2nd: BillyKane - 6 wins, 1 loss - Yun, Chun-Li, Ken
3rd: [3rd]M’Barreck - 5 wins, 2 losses - Gouki, Ibuki, Dudley, Remy
4rth: [3rd]Walid - 5 wins, 2 losses - Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li
4rth-8th in no particular order (I’ll try to update once I get the full results): Maurice (Ryu, Ken, Elena), Andre (Gouki, Alex), huang (Ken, Makoto, Yun), Erwan (Ken, Ryu)
1st: BillyKane - 7 wins, 0 loss - Yun, Chun-Li, Alex
2nd: [3rd]M’Barreck - 6 wins, 1 loss - Gouki, Ibuki, Dudley, Remy
3rd: Nasty/Nyto - 5 wins, 2 losses - Chun-Li
4rth: [3rd]Walid - 4 wins, 3 losses - Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li
4rth-8th: Maurice, Andre, PeCheuR (Ken, Urien), Shizuma (Ken, Necro, Alex)
The European team at SBO will be
Big thanks to Wael, Walid and co. for putting so much effort in the tourneys, they ran very smoothly.
Thanks to everyone who entered and donated (around 60 entries just for 3s, counting all three tournaments!), hope you all had a good time.
Thanks to Kuni and the SBO comitee for giving Europe a team spot for 3s.
Thanks to the Dutch players who came to enter the first qualifier, hope to see you guys again soon. Shame more foreign players didn’t show up. The next big tournaments in France -after Cannes this month- are in May if you’re interested.
For those who asked, there’s footage of the qualifiers but I don’t know if it’s going to be encoded yet.
