Awesome...
This is like the highest leveled league in SF.
Great to see Nemo in there. Too bad there's not any of the top Boxer players included, namely Maeda Taison or Pamyuu.

You might want to rephrase this...it makes it sound like the second and third placers get nothing! :3

Syntactically Yours,

I'm guessing the new format is to eliminate matchup imbalance.

x_Who_Is_Alpha said on September 7, 2010 at 3:49 a.m.

Woo! I hope Arai takes it.

#10
massi4h said on September 7, 2010 at 5 a.m.

Uryo not playing Sakura? Cmon his Sak is beastly, it would be a shame for him not to use her in tournament.

#11
HukGuay said on September 7, 2010 at 5:06 a.m.

@5 thats one of the most retarded tings ive seen anyone type. how is this racist when the tourney is in japan and those players didn't choose to try it out. Its like saying some random tourney in us is racist cause there is no jap players.

#12
Jerm said on September 7, 2010 at 5:06 a.m.

Go Nemo!!! Win for the Chun-Li players everywhere!!! Me included!

#13
sf4maniac said on September 7, 2010 at 5:08 a.m.

Kindevu = Cammy, Uryo = C.Viper.
Uryo says "There is too many bad matchups for sakura, so i'll use C.Viper" on his twitter.

#14
massi4h said on September 7, 2010 at 5:25 a.m.

Thats quite disappointing actually, but thanks for the info. Never heard of Tonpi.

#15
Nyoro said on September 7, 2010 at 5:46 a.m.

Go Mago! Kung Fu is invincible!

#16
Bajas said on September 7, 2010 at 6:12 a.m.

Still no Iyo. Too bad, I think his playstyle is much more fun to watch than Mochi

#17
radica said on September 7, 2010 at 6:24 a.m.

He retired.

Nelaelu said on September 7, 2010 at 7:49 a.m.

I'm glad to see a nice variety of characters being used... It would be even better if there were no repeats!

If they keep going with GodsGardens they should make a rule that if you win, you CAN'T use the same character anymore...

...of course, I don't see it happening, but it would be interesting to see if the past winners can be successful with other characters.

#21
ThatRandomGamerGuy said on September 7, 2010 at 7:51 a.m.

Where's GamerBee? He not good enough or are these just some of the names ( top players listed only) that will be participating? I want to see his Adon in this.

Otherwise I wish they did this in the states more often.

#22
CMAyhem said on September 7, 2010 at 8:15 a.m.

even if the tournament is only for the japanese, it should be allowed to the japanese public to enter

12 players is a very small/restrict number for a tournament!

this tourny looks like a barbecue tourny to me, get your 12 best friends and make it....BORING!

"

the Japanese Public can enter, that's why Acqua, Tonpy, and Arai are there. the Top 4 godsgarden 2.5 qualify. and you have to qualify for 2.5, 16 people main event.

Godsgraden is always an top lvl invitational tournament. newbies and scrub are not allow.

#24
VegaBisonAbel said on September 7, 2010 at 8:26 a.m.

need more makoto vega!
need more wildcat hakan
need more hiropon seth

#25
TAJK said on September 7, 2010 at 8:43 a.m.

Why is Nemo there? I thought Nuki is a better Chun Li player, no? And I thought Nemo decided to main Cammy in SSF4, no?

#26
spotlesseden said on September 7, 2010 at 8:53 a.m.

because Nemo won godsgraden 2.5. Nuki doesn't play much SSF4.

why are you guys act like you are running the tournament?

#27
Catalyst said on September 7, 2010 at 8:59 a.m.

@TAJK

Nemo won GodsGarden 2.5 using Chun-Li. http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2010/au...

Also, the top four GG 2.5 finishers are playing in this tournament.

#28
waynehead895 said on September 7, 2010 at 9:02 a.m.

Would be going for Uryo but he's not using Sakura. So if Tonpy uses Sak at least once then he'll be the guy I root for.

#29
SabishiiRyuu said on September 7, 2010 at 9:37 a.m.

@TAJK: Nemo has always been the better chun-li player in SF4. 2nd place is a toss-up between Nuki and Haneyama.

#30
Flerg said on September 7, 2010 at 9:38 a.m.

LOL Iyo plays Ibuki just like he plays Dhalsim. Boooring.

#31
toge said on September 7, 2010 at 9:43 a.m.

@35

Nemo, Nuki, haneyama and y24 all have their merits as a Chun player.

#32

jesuslovessatan said on September 7, 2010 at 11:47 a.m.

i prefer makotos claw but its whatever. also gamerbee is from taiwan and this is a japanese tourny. it would be sweet though, i love his adon links.

#35
Shao said on September 7, 2010 at 12:27 p.m.

Rooting for Acqua, Tokido and Momochi. You can clearly see my bias, hahaha.

#36
WinstonChurchill said on September 7, 2010 at 12:54 p.m.

I really want to see some new Momochi/Akuma action

#37
Jaf said on September 7, 2010 at 1:24 p.m.

Strange, Daigo is the only Ryu player in the tourney. Imagine if the tourney was in North America...

#38
Mrb20028 said on September 7, 2010 at 2:12 p.m.

Daigo was no surprise at this tourney, but Momochi?!? Love his Akuma. I want to see him face Tokido.

#39
Kakkarot045 said on September 7, 2010 at 2:31 p.m.

Nice 1 more godsgarden..bt Where is makoto(claw) gone..n also where is alex valle,not heard him in tournaments for long time..!

#40
Catalyst said on September 7, 2010 at 2:50 p.m.

Alex Valle is running the Level|Up Series, and they have a big tournament coming up in early November. You'll probably see a lot more of Alex at other big tournaments too, at least the state side ones. He attends a lot of those.

topdawg122 said on September 7, 2010 at 3:28 p.m.

Go Sako, show me some bad@ss cammy combos!

#42
bananainsaneface said on September 7, 2010 at 3:47 p.m.

"Strange, Daigo is the only Ryu player in the tourney. Imagine if the tourney was in North America..."

If this tourney was in North America there wouldn't be any Ryu's at all considering the only top players in the US that use Ryu are Chris Hu and Valle and they always lose. Ryu just isn't strong enough in this game sadly.

#43
AnsatsukenChamp said on September 7, 2010 at 3:54 p.m.

I want a yhc mochi vs daigo rematch, hopefully daigo learns from his mistakes and pulls of the win this time, yhc mochi good, but daigo is the best, and even the best players make mistakes, daigo is human after all you daigo haters i dont see u daigo haters winning tournaments, and b4 u pull the lame "ryu is scrub character" what characters do u use, i use Guy and i can still take out ryus/kens/akumas/sagats, its not about the character, its how u use them, oh yea dont use "dp spam" or fireball spam either, i bet u guys do tht as well

#44
Grimmjow316 said on September 7, 2010 at 4:08 p.m.

No Zagitan wow no grappler representation whatsoever that sucks.

#45
Kakkarot045 said on September 7, 2010 at 4:56 p.m.

Good to know..catalyst..!

Enter4none said on September 7, 2010 at 5 p.m.

Oi!, got my copy of the game 3 months ago, had a first to five versus Uryo, got beaten down to the ground and fast, but got myself a couple of rounds and a nice message note, ~ classy fellow, will follow his videos through the tourney.

#47
geodude said on September 7, 2010 at 6:55 p.m.

damn, no grapplers!?

#48
bananainsaneface said on September 7, 2010 at 6:58 p.m.

Daigo can not win against Dhalsim with Ryu. Thats why he picked up Cammy.

#49
mr_e said on September 8, 2010 at 2:03 a.m.

@55. Yea seems that way. Guess we'll see once this tourney gets started.

#50
roflmaodreammore said on September 8, 2010 at 2:14 a.m.

ROFL , people that think jwong or sabin or whatever can even compete with these players are dreaming .....

cmon face the fact . the gap between the americans and japanese is way too far .

#51
bananainsaneface said on September 8, 2010 at 5:29 a.m.

^Not really. Tokido is one of the best in Japan and he couldn't even get top 8 at EVO.

#52
bananainsaneface said on September 8, 2010 at 5:30 a.m.

Eita also did even worse.

#53
2iLL said on September 8, 2010 at 10:28 a.m.

You guys do realize that these 12 Japs can easily destroy any tourney they entire in any part of the globe?

P.S.

Keep in mind half of this roster will be at Season's beatings too... Highly doubting a fellow US player will take it this time around either.

#54
bananainsaneface said on September 8, 2010 at 11:01 a.m.

Only Daigo, Momochi and his girl are coming to Season's Beatings. Where are you getting half the roster?

#55
teflonbtm said on September 8, 2010 at 12:12 p.m.

@58 I second that.If the USA showed ANYTHING at evo,it's that we can compete with Japan's top players.Daigo came to evo and didn't get sent to losers true,but Sabin pretty much beat him @ the salty suite,'cept he sorta choked at the end.My point is,if Jwong,Sanford,and Sabin were to enter this they wouldn't just get bodied like everybody would assume they would,wish people would stop with that stupid ass line of thinking.

#56
SeoulZombie said on September 8, 2010 at 2:22 p.m.

@teflonbtm: You can't "pretty much beat" someone. You either beat them or you don't. Sabin came close to beating Daigo, but you're completely ignoring the fact that Daigo beat a countless amount of people before and after that match.
@bananainsaneface So what if Tokido or Eita didn't come in top 8 at Evo? You can't judge the whole talent of Japan based on how two players performed at Evo. The fact of the matter is that Japan is on a much higher level than the US. I'm not saying the US would do terribly in this tournament, but I don't think that they would be able to win very many matches.

#57
hussasin said on September 8, 2010 at 5:36 p.m.

sako will win again, no characters in this tourney that counters cammy, maybe chun, not sure. Btw I cant believe the foolish comments that are being posted here geez, and FU rodgerpower14

Azazel said on September 8, 2010 at 7:07 p.m.

GO TOKIDO!!
