WEIRDEST tournament ever. After everyone had played each other, it was a three way tie. Even taking records into account, it was a three way tie. One representative from each team was then entered into another round robin tournament. Once again, a three way tie. A 2nd representative was entered in another round robin. It was a three way tie, including records, but they went even further this time and took into account how many characters it took to get a win (or loss).

#12

did i read wrong or is OTK back? = =


#13

Single : defeated by AO

Team : Togawa win to Choi and Kindevu then get ocv from BAS, then BAS lose to Tsugunosuke.

-OTK was there but he officialy stoped to play this game a while ago.
-Choi’s C Sakura was impressive
-Iyo, who is a real beast, lose to Ricky in team tournament.
-Maybe around 40 entry.

Info on tie breaker Round Robin from choi:

first: ricky vs bas vs kok
ricky loses to bas, ricky beats kok, kok beats bas, resulting in another tie.

2nd set: Choi vs Iyo vs Random
Choi makes a huge comeback vs Iyo with 5% Sagat vs 100% Rolento. Jumps over slide into combo into roll uppercut for dizzy and wins. Iyo beats Random. Random Beats Choi.
Results in ANOTHER tie.

they decided to end the round robin now and decided to count Characters left on team, and iyo had the most vs random, in this case, making Nagoya the winner, tokyo 2nd, and USA 3rd.
