What happened to the Euros? This event was planned in part to accomodate the European players, but only Subes88 showed up. Other future events will take place at different times to accomodate some of the west coast players, as this event began at 6 AM on the west coast. Sorry for the early wakeup guys!
To review, WAR GAMES took place in the Endless Battle feature online. With only 7 members participating, all 7 members joined the same lobby and began playing. Rules were slightly modified due to the small turnout. To claim 1st Place, a member needed to win 6 matches in a row. After a member won, the member had to leave the lobby and allow the other members to continue playing. 2nd Place was earned by winning 5 matches in a row. Finally, 3rd Place was earned by winning 4 matches in a row. Members could use any fighter to play, and were not restricted to their 2 league fighters.
As promised, SKRFACE13's BLANKA made an appearance and went on to claim 1st Place. That impressive feat earns Skrface the right to challenge any member in the league for ranking with one of his fighters. Anyone want to guess who he may challenge? Here's a hint...get ready for MotW II! HADUKEN3 went on to win 2nd Place. That prize earns him the opportunity to challenge any fighter in the same or next highest division with one of his fighters. Finally, 3rd Place was won by yours truly, SALONGHORN. By winning 3rd Place, I earned the right to challenge any fighter in the same division with one of my fighters. The winner of the Prize Matches take the higher ranking and the loser falls to the lower ranking between the two fighters.
All Prize Matches will be played as part of Week 4, which begin next Monday, August 9th.
NOTE - To all participating members playing in a Prize Match (this includes those members/fighters being challenged by the above mentioned winners), please make it a priority to play the Prize Matches as soon as possible. The outcomeof the Prize Matches will determine your regular weekly match with your fighter. For example, if I challenge the Bronze Champion with my Ken, then I need to play that match first with Ken in order to determine who I will fight in my regular Week 4 match with Ken, either a title defense as Bronze Champion or my regular ranked match.
Thanx again to all particiapting members. There will be another event in two months (see Season 2 schedule on the Members Database page at the bottom). Congratulations to all the winners and good luck in your Prize Matches. I hope those that entered HOME enjoyed the visit and mini-tour. I think it will work well for a staging area for future events. Nice to put a cyber-face to everyone. The SFCCL Clubhouse is open 24/7 for all members to use for chatting, meeting up, playing pool, arcade games, and game launching into SSF4. Let me know if you need an invite and I'll send you one. Finally, if any member wished to record and upload a replay of their WAR GAMES match, feel free to do so. I'll add the videos to the Events page for everyone to see.
