Last week, Twitch asked you, esteemed members of the FGC, to decide which three Japanese fighting game players (of the ones shortlisted) the video streaming provider would be flying down to attend CEO 2014 on June 27-29 in Orlando, Florida.

You've casted your votes, and now the results are finally out -- along with a very special announcement.

On top of flying three Japanese players down, Twitch has also decided to show their support for Level Up’s Wednesday Night Fights & Super Smash Sundays weeklies, by throwing in a $1,000 pot bonus.

Hit the jump to find out who the three Japanese players are, and to read Twitch's address in full.
Hey Friends!

On behalf of Twitch I would like to thank our awesome community for the support and involvement with the vote! It is something that we are proud to be a part of and look forward to doing it again in the future.

Before getting to the results, we’ve also decided to support the Weeklies that coincide with the launch of Ultra Street Fighter IV. To that end, we are throwing a $1,000 pot bonus for Level Up’s Wednesday Night Fights & Super Smash Sundays.

And now the moment you’ve been waiting for. The standings, after we contacted the players for their availability, are as follows:

#1 Akimo

#2 Nishikin

#3 Dunhill

We will be sending these players to CEO so watch for them there on June 27-29! Because they are all competing in the US for the first time, this will be extra special for those of you who are able to attend. And those who can’t, be sure to watch it on Twitch at &

For the remaining players who were unable to attend due to work scheduling issues we will be keeping an eye on them ;).
