The B Division is starting to take on it own character. DrPepper20's main brawler, HONDA, is back on top of the division. He has been the leader of the division nearly all season, but there are several challengers rising up the rankings. Currently, DrPepper's STARDUST win pushes him into the top spot of the division over Jay's Vega, however Kitana's Seth and Skrface's Blanka are starting to rack up the wins. NOTE - DrPepper and Jay1900 have yet to play each other in the B Division.

5. NEXT LIVE EVENT: SURVIVOR SERIES III
The third live event of the season will be the SURVIVOR SERIES. This will be the third time the league will hold this type of event. It has been one of the most popular events in the past.The event is fun, but can be confusing when played for the first time. Its roots go back to my first-ever SF league I played with my friends and cousins back on the Super Nintendo Street Fighter II days. We created the event based on the format of the original WWF (not WWE) event of the same name. Teams of 4 battle it out in a elimination style match. The event can be a real challenge for some and a blessing for others.
The event is a double-elimination tournament. Each participating member creates their own 4-fighter team. Teams must consist of 4 different figthers and members can use any combination of fighters. For some, using multiple fighters is a challenge since they are only good with one or two figthers. For others, using 4 fighters gives them a better chance of defeating some of the other members with strong main figthers, sort of like a 4-versus-1 matchup. A member must lose with all 4 fighters to be defeated. Winning fighters cannot be changed out until defeated. Some members choose to start with their weakest fighter first and anchor the team with their main fighter. Others choose to start with their main fighters first. The fighter order can be changed each round.
Like the other events, the winning member will receive additional win for both fighters in division standings. Since DrPepper20 and Hursh191 have won the previous events, they are not allowed to play in any future events.
6. WEBSITE UPDATES
Schedules and division standings have been updated based on the latest results. Also, the WAR GAMES webpage has also been updated with the results, video replays, and winning banner.
