As usual, Japan exerts their dominance in SF4 while USA does the same with Marvel.

Only issue I have with this article is you linked the twitch page but didn't mention (were unaware?) that the archives won't be available to the public for two weeks unless you were a paid subscriber to the CCG channel.

Now, Singaporeans can say that they are best in more than just table tennis. At least he is home grown, I think. Well done, Xian!!! Keep up the great work!

I missed watching this tournament. Plus, I don't recognize most of the names of the players.

 

Well, either way, congrats to all the winners.

 @BryanParksSuper Then why did you take your time replying? People like you are the worst.

 

It's good that the fighting game community is getting some coverage at last.
