The "decision" was easy to make in these remaining 5 matches since all of the matches involved members that didn't play either of their 2 matches. In the European Red Bracket, MISSDIAMONDS09 and T_ROY-90 didn't play either of their matches this tournament over a 3 week period, and never took the courtesy to let me or their opponents know anything. So they forfeited their two matches against SHOORYUKENN and WAUHTI, respectively. They also played each other, so no winner advances in that fighter, which as a result gives Shooryukenn's BLANKA a bye in the 3rd Round. Unfotunately, as a result of these matches, the European Region only has 5 members still playing their matches, which is an all-time low this season. Thank you SHOORYUKENN, WAUHTI, CRAVIN456, HEDR1984, and RUDEBOY_2DEEP for playing out your matches.
In the Yellow and Black Brackets, the 2 unplayed matches both involved SWEET_POISON_. No communication was ever relayed by him, so he forfeits both matches to WILD_X_187 and HADUKEN3. Both members move on to the 3rd round in their respective brackets.
I really hope this is the last group of matches that need "decisions". Hopefully all remaining matches in the tournament are played out as scheduled. There is no deadline for 3rd Round matches (yet), and hopefully there won't be a need for one.
Sunday, June 12th, is my birthday (happy birthday to me - got my SSFIV for the 3DS) so I will be going on a short vacation for a few days. Keep sending in your results and I will update the brackets when I return & read all of your messages. Until then, good luck to all remaining fighters!
