the diversity in this is gonna be SICK!


#4

Makoto isn’t considered a powerhouse?


#5

Isn’t this a bit like the 1 man 2on2 event MiKaDo used to do?

@theshend yea but I think those were just stand-alone tournaments. Correct me if I’m wrong though. also as you can see this is 3 characters per person and there’s a restriction on which characters you can combine. (Can’t have 2 of the 3 top characters on your roster) This will be a part of a season with a grand champion and winner gets a champion belt (not sure if literal or figurative)

@lance3rd not sure why they decided to choose those 3. in maniax there use to be a rule first season about no chun + yun combo on a team. Kuroda thinks chun and ken are the best characters. a tier list a few years back had mak tied with yun infront of ken. just perspective I guess

reminds me of star cup!

updated thread.

@deemo im not sure if they intend on uploading a proper video via nicovideo or what. this will be useful for non-japanese speakers in the future. for the time being, i have posted 1st and 2nd place for this first VSGC.

I’ll update the thread with all the Links to the VGSC series since apparently season 1 is over now?

I stopped posting in this thread since I thought hismit and deemo were on it since they initially kept posting videos for it in the official match video thread but I guess Fran ended up helping out. Thanks.
