i think you talk of kai yang/ryu player…
is hard for example
i am a chilean player and the most of people of us and japan never fight against me (maybe i win maybe i lost) …i have a some vids of the last tournamet of chile (i am the necro player) but
this is a vid …tournament play is hard and some people are sooo stupid when see vids …
i think the only way …is fight a match between top players of each country … i can tell this …you get a big surprise if fight against chilean top players
A lot of international players do get to fight it out at SBO and EVO, but yes - a dream tournament (apart from SBO) would be all the top players in one place at the same time.
If only I was rich enough - I’d sponsor every single one to come stay in London for a week and fight it out :sad: Not that it would cost that much - but by the time I do have enough I probably wont be interested in 3s anymore…
There is a rumour that at SBO this year, there will be a tournament for all of the non-Japanese teams to see which of the non-Japanese teams is the best. It will be on stage and everything, or so I have heard.
In no particular order IMO the best non Japanese players are:
Hong (I believe he is originally from HK)
As for which region is the best after Japan, most would sya the US (espeically the FFA players), but I think the Australians and maybe the Canadians are right up there with them.
