13 Feb 2v2 Tournament Results and Finals Videos

Man, what a tournament! 18 teams of two descended upon Bugis Virtualand on Friday the 13th for our third bi-weekly tournament, this time with a 2v2 format. There were lots of incredible matches between great players, and I'm really believing that if the level of play keeps improving as it's done weekly, then Singapore will be recognized as a major Street Fighter 4 power very soon. I'll be uploading my choice videos from the tournament in the coming days, but in the meantime here's the video of the EPIC, SIMPLY EPIC final match between Leslie, using Abel, and Raven, using Balrog.

But before that, the results.

1st place: Team Shadowlaw- Ganguro (M.Bison) and Leslie (Abel)
2nd place: Team Watermelon- Raven (Balrog) and Yama (Rufus)
3rd place: Team Tan and Guan- Ah Guan (Akuma) and Peihoon (Balrog)
4th place: Team Ninja Turtle- Kenny (Ken!) and Simon (Ryu)

And here are your champions!

Here are the videos of the finals. At first, Yama from Team Watermelon and Leslie from Team Shadowlaw faced off..

Since Yama lost, Raven had to win his match or else it was game over.

And he did! So we have the deciding match between Raven and Leslie. Simply Epic.

This game is really balanced, I truly believe any character can win well.

Anyways, thanks to all who came down! And for those of you that didn't (or are sitting at home playing online!You know who you are), I highly encourage you to come down to the tournaments or even just the arcades one of these days. Somehow, you learn alot from watching watching 'the pros' play in real life.

Watch this blog for upcoming videos, podcasts, tutorials and guides aimed at helping YOU become a better player! In the meantime, as always, remember that you can find past local tournament and casual games here.
