After seeing Vinny and Brad's epic match during the Quick Look of Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online, I am dying to see a full-on Giant Bomb Scrub League Tournament for this game. It sounds like none of them really have much experience with the game, and seems perfect for an official Scrub League throwdown. Come on GB Crew, I want to see you guys and gals play one of my favorite fighting games.

Comment on this thread if you feel the same way.

The principle of a scrub league is that the game is easy to pick up and play. I would not call Third Strike a "pick up and play" type of game

As much as I love this game, I say no. I want a new genre for each Scrub League.

You can totally have people play Street Fighter who don't know how to play and have them fight each other.  It definetly gets deep but you can still do fireballs and dragon punches.

I think a 3s scrub league would be a disaster. Super Turbo would be a better fit, 3s is in another universe when it comes to complexity.

I'm not against a street fighter scrub league, An SSF 4 one would be great. I just think that third strike is the most complicated game in the series and not a great place to have a bunch of beginners duke it out

3S is to hard for the people of the whiskey media to understand.

They played Mortal Kombat, which isn't exactly simplistic. Besides, the fun of it would be watching people who have never played Third Strike playing it against each other.

You still throw fireballs and z-punches in this game, right? It'll be fine. I wouldn't mind seeing this as this week's TNT.

...Hmm thinking... No.

Scrub league indeed but after constantly ejaculating over high level 3S videos, I don't feel that 3S is a good game for them to promote. Funny to watch but would have an weird underlying feel. I sense hella whiffed Shoryus, jabs, and sweeps. Also Vinny with basketballs and all Ken players picking SA1. Lemon is the closest capable player here especially hearing about his "practice."

I thought this was a thread for a Giant Bomb Community Scrub League Tourney, and got really excited to hear that people were trying to set something up for the release of the game, but I guess I was wrong :(
