Eventhubs is missing the most important bit of information:
It will be on NicoNico and it's PPV(around 30 usd).

@#8 What makes you think they didn't ask him?

Xiao Hai, Poongko, and Xian. Haven't heard much of first two since EVO esp Xiao Hai. Will be lots of fun.

THE FK. This is what I call a LEAGUE. Though Infiltration would make it more perfect...

futureflavors said on April 26, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

Man, I wish Haitani was included. I have been fiending for the Haitani/Xiao Hai runback since Evo.

The line up is INCREDIBLE though -

ElectricBlanka said on April 26, 2013 at 2:59 p.m.

If Infiltration had participated, I would not have thought twice to purchase the Premium Deal.

Asia league without the EVO and 25th anniversary champion of last year ? I hope they got serious reasons to explain this.

#16
Buzz3rs said on April 26, 2013 at 5:50 p.m.

Eh no Infiltration... So basically a tournament to see who the 2nd best player in the world is. Not paying $30 to see that

This Japanese tournament include top local players + represents of each Asia countries.
I don't know why they choose Poongko instead of Infiltration.

#19
hismit said on April 26, 2013 at 7:31 p.m.

Poongko is more like an FGC friendly player while Infiltration is an E-Sport dude so it's not a problem for me when Infiltration isn't there. But they should include Humanbomb for the 4th slot imo.

#20
sojiki said on April 26, 2013 at 8:32 p.m.

@ 19 Sadly Infiltration wanted the free win in the states, did not want to risk losing in a more stacked tourney. I wouldn't blame him is all about the Benjamins.

#21
Bowie said on April 26, 2013 at 8:36 p.m.

For all people crying because Infiltration is not there, why you rush to silly conclusions ?

This League is made to gain money, obviously if Infiltration was participating the League will get more attention and more money.

Have you realize why Infiltration has never been in tournaments in Japan ?

I don't know why Infiltration is not participating, but thinking that it's because other players are afraid from him is kinda simple or stupid.

@22

No point reasoning with the EH derpies. I guess it might have to do with tight schedule of the players, there's quite a few who seems to missed out but then again if its successful there will always be the next and bigger ones. I'm sure Infiltration and the Japanese are equally excited to play each other unlike the scrubs with their scrubs mentality.

The Infliltration dickriding in EH is strong here. To the point where the individual is convinced that the only logical reason Infiltration is not at the League is that the other participants are scared.

#24
sephirosuy said on April 26, 2013 at 10:24 p.m.

Hey dudes, probably Infiltration's schedule could not make it, it's hard to "date" Infiltration nowadays, and he's from South Korea, organizer has to take care of his flight and etc stuffs.

It's surprised to see they're able to invite Xiao Hai

#25
HardToSayNo said on April 26, 2013 at 10:39 p.m.

Infiltration couldnt make it because he came out to USA for NCR. noobs

#26
MCHAWKING said on April 26, 2013 at 10:56 p.m.

According to event hubs, Daigo didn't go to NCR because he is ducking Infiltration, despite the fact that Daigo was originally announced for NCR after infiltration already was confirmed. So really this sort of logic is expected.

#27
Tensa said on April 27, 2013 at 12:04 a.m.

I HIGHLY doubt daigo is ducking anyone

#28
Bajas said on April 27, 2013 at 1:40 a.m.

idiots. I'm sure Infiltration would be there if he could. And I'm sure the other players WANT him to be there, since at the moment he's the one to beat. Everyone is anxious to take down the champ, and I'm betting that they are a bit dissapointed he's not there.

The two previous Topanga Leagues were amazing! Can't wait! No Kazunoko and Haitani makes me sad though :(

#30
SAMURAI said on April 27, 2013 at 4:40 a.m.

Infiltration, Kazunoko, Haitani, Mago, Tokido?

#31
llSilkCutll said on April 27, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Daigo uses Ryu, Infiltration uses Akuma (who's walkspeed alone is faster than Guy) Ryu is severely disadvantaged due to Akuma knockdown / Vortex - It's a guessing game that Infiltration has won recently, but he wont win forever! Daigo doesn't duck no-one any idiot saying that knows nothing about Daigo. Now Infiltration will be here sure of that, but I don't think Daigo or Infiltration will win. I'm going for Bonchan (who murders Akumas but get's destroyed by Daigo's Ryu) or Xian (who seems to cope with anyone)!

With Infiltration there it would be perfect (and Tokido who beats Infiltration most times).

they got the wrong korean, jim jeong un will nuke em for dis! lol jk

this is stacked but no kazunoko??? cmoooonn!

Erawan said on April 27, 2013 at 7:37 a.m.

Awesome, I may just have to get on this. Anyone know if this is the same deal as previous Topanga leagues where you were able to download the matches too?

It's a shame there's not an option for English commentary, even something like delayed hyper commentary (a la UltraDavid) added later would be awesome.

Why haven't they got something like this in the states yet? Yeah, I know the internet is ass there, but maybe they could do an East cost/West coast division with the champs travelling to meet at the end or something? Or work out a time and place when they could have the matches, even if it was over a long period of time like months.

Who would be in it? Hmmm... those that come to mind would be Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz, Chris G, Dieminion, Latif, Wolfkrone, Sanford, Knuckledu, PR Balrog, FilipinoChamp, Sabin, Snake Eyez, K-Brad, Mike Ross, Alex Valle, OnlineTony, Happy Medicine. Obviously it's just a bit of fantasy, I could add and take away from that list. I know I've missed some other top players. Someone make it happen!

#34
stream_monster said on April 27, 2013 at 7:25 p.m.

Honestly they probably asked Infiltration and he refused. He might be busy or simply just doesn't want to get downloaded for future tourneys.
