Matsuda called all of the 3S players who wish to be in Team Japan 3S to GAME-NEWTON and had a tourney to determine the member.
participants are as follows:
Raoh, Mester, Nitto, Kokujin, MOV, and KSK
(Tokido came to watch, but declined. He and Chikyuu gave way to those who strongly wish to be in the team.)
Originally, Daigo and Nuki have the guaranteed spots.
But Daigo cancelled, so just Nuki’s spot is confirmed and 4 spots are to be competed among them.
These six fought each other in round-robin format.
3 games out of 5, and ranking is determined by just winning count. Top 4 get the spot.
The result is as follows:
Raoh(ChunLi): 2-3 to Mester, 0-3 to Nitto, 2-3 to Kokujin, 2-3 to MOV, 2-3 to KSK (8 wins)
Mester(Yun): 3-2 to Raoh, 3-1 to Nitto, 3-0 to Kokujin, 1-3 to MOV, 1-3 to KSK (11 wins)
Nitto(Yun): 3-0 to Raoh, 1-3 to Mester, 2-3 to Kokujin, 3-0 to MOV, 2-3 to KSK (11 wins)
Kokujin(Dudley): 3-2 to Raoh, 0-3 to Mester, 3-2 to Nitto, 3-1 to MOV, 3-1 to KSK (12 wins)
MOV(ChunLi): 3-2 to Raoh, 3-1 to Mester, 0-3 to Nitto, 1-3 to Kokujin, 3-0 to KSK (10 wins)
KSK(Alex): 3-2 to Raoh, 3-1 to Mester, 3-2 to Nitto, 1-3 to Kokujin, 0-3 to MOV (10 wins)
According to winning number, ranking is:
1. Kokujin(12 wins) confirmed
2. Mester(11 wins) confirmed
2T. Nitto(11 wins) confirmed
4. MOV(10 wins)
4T. KSK(10 wins)
6. Raoh(8 wins) DQ
3/5 Playoff was done between MOV and KSK for the last spot which result is:
KSK, MOV, KSK, MOV, and… MOV!! MOV won and got the last spot.
Oh, NO! Poor KSK :sad: but he did quite well against top tier characters.
So the final Team Japan member is:
Nuki(ChunLi), Kokujin(Dudley), Mester(Yun), Nitto(Yun), and MOV(ChunLi)
Good job for everyone and good luck for versus Team USA. :karate:
