GGPO SSF2T/SSF2X USA vs JPN Invitational Tournament
We would like to announce: The USA vs Japan GGPO Invitational Tournament hosted on GGPO that will take place on 22nd / 23rd June, 2013. Organized by delatroy, osaka-pizza, and FWN and presented by ST Revival and Arkadeum, top players from each country have been invited to battle it out in a solo, character-locked, first-to-three, double elimination contest where a ”best-of-the-best” champion will be crowned.
To ensure connection quality between the two countries, USA invites were restricted to players residing on the West Coast given its relative close geographic proximity to Japan. Players from Australia, South Korea, Taiwan and the rest of the USA were considered but were ruled out on inadequate latency grounds to ensure a quality experience for the majority of the participants.
Time & Date:
June 22nd Saturday at 20:00 California time
June 23rd Sunday, 12:00 (noon) Tokyo time
