I'm pretty sure daigo is supposed to be here too. AE should be over the top hype, marvel will be mostly Norcal vs Chris G. I hope norcal has a plan if not this is pretty free for chris.

I'm excited for melee

i read daigo was going to this one. I guess I was just seeing things

im2hot4ya said on April 23, 2013 at 8:32 p.m.

daigo saw that infiltration is going so he chickened out

On the front page right now.

Bowie said on April 23, 2013 at 8:33 p.m.

I'll watch NCR for sure, but without Daigo it lost appealing, at least for me. Infiltration, well, don't get me wrong, he is awesome, but once you saw one Infiltration's match, is like you have seen all his matches, kinda boring.

But that's just my opinion, and opinions are like assh0les. Everybody's got one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks

#7
ReddChief said on April 23, 2013 at 8:39 p.m.

This is a westcoast tournament no way Chris G is winning this so stop that please its good alot of international players will be there this might actually be a hype tournament this year

#8
kakarotto said on April 23, 2013 at 8:50 p.m.

@8

EVERYONE is FREE to ChrisG at marvel, so stop crying....

As for AE, the same aplies to infil, cant see anyone that beats him right now

#9
RedEther said on April 23, 2013 at 8:52 p.m.

@6 Welp well that's a cakewalk for Infiltration to GF unless Ricky/Justin or Momochi has something to say about it.

#10
roarmonster said on April 23, 2013 at 8:58 p.m.

@9

in all fairness, chris G has yet to win any major on the west coast. There is something to be said about not being in your comfort zone....also having to deal with a lot of players he doesn't know, he is more likely to run into a land mind

#11
spotlesseden said on April 23, 2013 at 9:03 p.m.

ChirsG didn't even win at Cananda's west coast either.
Tons of players in the WC can random out ChirsG. He has no data on most of the players.

#12
RedEther said on April 23, 2013 at 9:04 p.m.

I really want so see a Chris G vs Justin GF again /Kappa.

#13
kakarotto said on April 23, 2013 at 9:06 p.m.

Right now he doesnt need to "have any data", just soul fist spam all day and he's ok

I bet he'll win this!

#14
spotlesseden said on April 23, 2013 at 9:09 p.m.

Chris G just lost SoCal Regional couple months back.
my money is on field over ChirsG. This is not EC.

it looks like Daigo is going to Chokaigi 2.

Daigo, Tokido, Mago, Sako, Nuki, Haitani, Fuudo, Uryo, Bonchan, and more.

#15
spotlesseden said on April 23, 2013 at 9:14 p.m.

Chris G can't win in WC.
Daigo can't win in UK.
Infiltration can't win Canada.

rakuko said on April 23, 2013 at 9:17 p.m.

home field advantage seems to affect Chris G a lot, though obviously he'll do well.

and WOW Melee finals on IPW as the last game for Saturday? that's awesome! i generally don't pop into the Smash-exclusive stream, so it'll be great to see some WC Melee since i didn't see most of Kings of Cali 2. hope the monsters at least stay on to see the gameplay.

#18
rakuko said on April 23, 2013 at 9:35 p.m.

@19: well it is tournament season, no reason to waste funds on flying back to Singapore when he's gonna be flying back to attend a tournament every weekend for a while.

Whens DC!?

#21
Batmang said on April 23, 2013 at 10:30 p.m.

DC pls BibleThump

Marvel is generally fun to watch if the WC is playing, and Infiltration will be there, so there's some things to look forward to at least. The lack of Injustice is disappointing though :(

#22
LK said on April 23, 2013 at 10:58 p.m.

@24

What an injustice to not have injustice~!

#23
PwnageJuIcE said on April 23, 2013 at 11:08 p.m.

btw theres a typo "NCR 2013 is also one fo the five tournaments on the Road to EVO 2013 circuit." fo should be of obviously, not a grammar nazi but this being a website u might wanna get that fixed.

#24
urbanlime said on April 23, 2013 at 11:11 p.m.

If I win my first pool match at NCR, I play FChamp. SwiftRage.

#25
XFinalVengeanceX said on April 23, 2013 at 11:15 p.m.

Yes i must say i would like to see injustice but i can see why its not there.

#26
Echo01 said on April 23, 2013 at 11:20 p.m.

No Injustice??? Huh, I'll probably just tune in for Divekick/KOF/Tekken.

#27
The_Big_Boss said on April 23, 2013 at 11:26 p.m.

Good luck #27 and honestly I just can't see Chris G. NOT winning but you never know.

#28
rakuko said on April 23, 2013 at 11:34 p.m.

just took a look at the NCR brackets, and if anyone's familiar with the WOMBO COMBO!, both SilentSpectre (Falcon) and TANG (Fox) are gonna get in there for Melee. hopefully they're not rusty, but i'm hype now!

#29
ya_boy said on April 23, 2013 at 11:39 p.m.

Infiltration scaring off Daigo and it looks like he will now take SF4 easy, then again you never know.
West coast Marvel should be worth watching this time since the result isn't set in stone.

#30
TeenIdol said on April 24, 2013 at 1:06 a.m.

No Injustice? Whack-@$$-sauce

#31
jimmyeatsquaids said on April 24, 2013 at 1:42 a.m.

pretty disappointed that daigo won't be coming after all. but still hyped for melee :D

#32
MetallicA said on April 24, 2013 at 2:23 a.m.

It's a shame how US majors barely have any Japanese presence anymore, it's like free money for Infiltration when it comes to AE, totally disappointed Daigo couldn't make it.

#33
MisterVinuto said on April 24, 2013 at 3:20 a.m.

any east coast players attending?

#34
JRXP2011 said on April 24, 2013 at 3:57 a.m.

Bitch ass Daigo is so hollywood now. Just about book signing and panels. So when a tru challenger came (filtration) "the beast" just backed down. Fack u umejuarez, you're now free.

#35
Mx_Paladin said on April 24, 2013 at 4:03 a.m.

ChrisG's rent money is due this weekend.

#36
Rob_the_Ripper said on April 24, 2013 at 4:34 a.m.

I am predicting that if AGE|NYChrisG has to play against Apologyman from Norcal, it'll be close. Two very front heavy teams. Apologyman could pull an upset being that a Frank at level 4 or 5 is such a d*ckhead character as long as Skrull does his thing and doesn't get bopped right away.

#37
dennishubs said on April 24, 2013 at 4:46 a.m.

no daigo but at least there's xian, lets go xian!

#38
MasterOfMagnet said on April 24, 2013 at 5:25 a.m.

10–11 a.m. Tekken Tag Finals

lol, really?

#39
Tensa said on April 24, 2013 at 5:40 a.m.

Ah ChrisG hasnt won a major on the west coast, hopefully he wins I do think someone on the WC can random out chrisG because alot of them are nuts lol

#40
TheMasterPlayer said on April 24, 2013 at 6:11 a.m.

Is the time EST or PST?

#41
Vergil_Too_Strong said on April 24, 2013 at 6:42 a.m.

We'll see if Chris Genius takes this. It wont be easy since Marvel revolves around Cali. As for AE, Infil or Momochi got this

SPOILERS: CHRIS G WINS MARVEL AND INFILTRATION WINS STREET FIGHTER.

Sanox said on April 24, 2013 at 7:53 a.m.

no injustice. i really wanted to see fchamp get bodied

#45
stream_monster said on April 24, 2013 at 8:01 a.m.

Chris G gonna win, though I do agree Apologyman could pull an upset. For someone reason I feel like he could do well in the matchup.

No Injustice on the list is disappointing, makes sense though. Gotta have the games that are on the EVO roster.

#46
MKKhanzo said on April 24, 2013 at 8:09 a.m.

Sad for Daigo not coming, I wanted that Infi vs him rematch.

Will Chokaigi 2 be streamed?

#47
handsofgod said on April 24, 2013 at 8:23 a.m.

The only thing I was really looking forward to was daigo vs inf but hey lol prediction would be chris g for marvel and inf for ae I just want to see sfxt and my guess for that is inf will take that too lol

#48
DevilMaySpy said on April 24, 2013 at 8:24 a.m.

Apology Man is NorCal's only hope of beating Chris.

#49
HansMoleman said on April 24, 2013 at 9:05 a.m.

@1 yes.
I cant believe they are snubbing injustice. I really hope it gets some stream time, it certainly deserves it more than other games. Im looking at you smash bros...

#50
ShinzoBishamon said on April 24, 2013 at 9:18 a.m.

Guys Injustice isn't at Evo and this is an Evo Qualifier, every Evo game is more important at this event than Injustice.

#51
chubbyfingerz said on April 24, 2013 at 9:33 a.m.

Kimo is bringing his Hakan. Wooo

#52
chipndip said on April 24, 2013 at 9:39 a.m.

SF X TKN is like, totally new ground to cover. Can we PLEASE get some dudes besides Sethlolol to body Infiltration and make him lose his top spot? I hate seeing one man being the best at everything.

He can keep AE though...seeing how he's going to regardless. That Akuma play too strong.

Not even gonna bother pretending like I'm looking forward to MorriDoom & Vergil in UMVC3. If Chris loses, I'll watch the archives. I don't want to risk wasting time seeing him body everyone again.

#53
chaosmage said on April 24, 2013 at 10:14 a.m.

@53

Unfortunately true. One of the main reasons for players to attend this tournament is to earn Evo points, so Injustice was unfortunately going to have to get the shaft. Hopefully they'll at least have it as a side event at some point though, the game was awesome to watch at Civil War.

Cemantics said on April 24, 2013 at 11:19 a.m.

I've never really bought into that "home field" advantage mumbo jumbo. Bunch of garbage.

If Chris G takes it, it's because he was on point and made better reads and less errors than usual. If not, then its just Marvel. Come semi and grand finals, it is anyone's game. Unless it's like Civil War 5 GF, hahaha. Free.

#56
OMGCHUCKNORRIS said on April 24, 2013 at 1:59 p.m.

Chris G rent money secure for may and June.

Sako is back for NorCal regionals!

#58
BlackMasamune said on April 24, 2013 at 2:55 p.m.

I really hope this won't be another 4G Low quality stream. That stuff is happening way too much lately.

#59
MCHAWKING said on April 24, 2013 at 2:55 p.m.

Even without Daigo, SF should be amazing. Online tony and Champ are in the same bracket (along with Laugh), so that should be interesting to see those two play after the SCR exhibition. James Chen in infiltrations pool, let's see that Cammy magic!

#60
JIHADJOE said on April 24, 2013 at 10:51 p.m.

Infiltration vs Xian, let's go!

#61
EnsignHiro said on April 25, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

Who cares if he won't be at ncr. At least he will still be at a high level tournament. I'm still gonna have to say the level of skill in ae is still higher in japan period. And for chris g I think this may be his first west coast win. We shall see though.

#62
MrSuRpRiS3 said on April 25, 2013 at 6:24 p.m.

The genius is about to put in some overtime on dat west coast ass to make sure he has his rent money and strip club money in which he will be taking me to.....you down with going to perfections in queens G? lol

#63
iMTopTier said on April 26, 2013 at 9:50 a.m.
