PSA: A double KO in Guilty Gear Strive will not award a win to the player with a round lead

If the developers are to be believed in their previous statements, Guilty Gear Strive is the perfect entry point of the series for newcomers.

CEO 2021 wildly reaching its attendee cap in mere hours proves the FGC is hungry and ready to return to offline events

The global COVID-19 pandemic essentially wiped out all offline fighting game tournaments (and pretty much every other in-person get-together) for over a year now, which had many wondering if players would be hesitant to return to events after the world got turned on its head. We apparently had no reason to worry, however.
