After watching so many 3S vids, I was just wondering if the Japanese Third Strike scene has a structured ranking system, a la chess? With ratings? Is there an official 3S world champion?
I used to be under the impression EVO was a world championship, but with Daigo and KO not there this year, I wonder, “who else doesnt show up each year?”
And then, when it comes to Japanese’s elite, are Daigo and KO and Ohnuki and Kokujin and all the guys I’ve heard of as high up there in rankings as american SRKers would think? I am guessing yes, but I heard somewhere that in GGXX, Daigo’s pretty much average as far as top japanese players. shrug But like, is Kokujin the best Dudley in the world? Or just the best one with vids available on the internet?
So yeah, for those who might know, I was wondering how they handle rankings and titles and stuff out there for 3S where everyone is amazing, and the nature of their “world championship.”
