I’d like to ask infos concerning the history of Sf Scene.
According to alt.games.sf2 and the archives of this forum, I’ll try to reconstruct what I have understood.
Sf2 and Ce era: best players were Thomas Osaki, Tomo Ohira, Jeff Schaefer…
Hf: same players plus?
Super Street Fighter 2: ?
Super Turbo: Same as above plus others (who probably have started before). John Choi, Mike Watson, Wolfe bros… (alt.games.sf2 archives).
But specifically, when did the tournaments acquire a national dimension, going beyond east/west division?
And when did Capcom Usa officially start to sponsor the tournaments?
Street Fighter The Movie: just joking, don’t worry
Street Fighter Alpha 1: ?
Sf Alpha 2: Alex Valle champion? (when and how did he win the title?).
Street Fighter 3: New Generation of games and new generation of hardcore players too? Same people mentioned above plus?
Sf Alpha 3: basing on Youtube japanese videos, Daigo became national champion (he lost A2 nationals against?) in 1998, he went to US and defeat Valle and other players.
The challenge between Japan and Usa began with A3 or before?
Sf3 Second Impact: ?
Sf3 Third Strike: Wikipedia shows a list of Tougeki winners, starting from 2003 (and what happened before? Difficult to answer without the knowledge of japanese language).
Shoryuken Wiki about Evo championship: lacking of several final results. And why Evo hasn’t a Wikipedia voice?
Capcom vs Snk 1 and 2: what about the Snk scene? Did Snk hardcore gamers managed to beat/obtain good results against Capcom players?
