Community leaders demonstrate growth during scheduling challenge with CEOtaku and SCR 2017

It used to be that the fighting game community tournament calendar offered one, maybe two blacked out dates a month for players and fans to look forward to, but that's changed drastically over the last few years.

With the boom in growth, more and more tournaments have been popping up, and some of the longer-established events have grown exponentially. On the whole this is surely a net positive for the community, but it does pose some issue with the potential of overlap.

Indeed even this weekend we'll be seeing Combo Breaker (Illinois), Red Bull Kumite (Paris) and the Eleague Finals (Georgia) all vying for the community's attention at roughly the same times. As it turns out, Level Up's SoCal Regionals and Alex Jebailey's anime-centric CEOtaku will also fall on the same weekend this coming September.

While knee-jerk reactions may incline one to think that such an overlap would spark drama or hard feelings between the respective tournament organizers, quite the opposite is happening.

Doza sends Dogura to losers at Final Round 20 without realizing it, the delayed pop off is epic

Final Round 20 is live right now with day 1 of the tournament action, and things are already heating up.

During the Blazblue: Central Fiction competition, a very strong player on the scene today, CO|Dogura, saw an unexpected defeat at the hands of 482|Doza. Spectators didn't expect to see the fighting game veteran sent to losers this early in the tournament, and apparently, neither did Doza.

After winning two games in the set, Doza's friends rushed the stage in celebration only to be met by a bewildered player. Doza did not realize that the set was 2 out of 3, and after a few moments of initial confusion, he erupted into a hype pop off.

Level 482 Gaming, Doza's sponsor, shared the clip on Twitter.
