Justin beating out Adon's Ultra with Rufus's Ultra was AWESOME.
Official Live Streams Thread
if you watched LIJoe's stream, Noel Brown said that Wolfkrone did not split his pot with Justin Wong, apparently they agreed to it but when Wolfkrone won he said he didnt want to do it lol
edit: Justin Wong said there was no drama on his twitter.
So Spooky is going to do other stuff besides fighting games now, which I think is awesome.
I did say I doubted he'd quit streaming. I predict that this time next year he'll be doing MLG, Civil War, CEO, East Coast Throwdown, Big Two and EVO. The rest of the time he'll be doing whatever he wants and making lots of money from it.
The first Road to EVO event for Canada is now live: http://shoryuken.com/2012/05/19/road-to-evo-2012-toryuken-stream-and-coverage-hub/ linking the SRK article since they've got two streams.
Justin Wong, Dieminion, Air and WolfKrone are all there.
After the dicey, controversial prospect that was ReveLAtions last week we're rather spoilt for choice this weekend with a host of interesting streams on offer.
I'll be going to some concert or other in Scotland but I'll try and watch what I can.
-GVN Summer Jam 6 (Path of the Storm).
-25th Anniversary Street Fighter Tournament - Taiwan.
-MLG Raleigh Summer Championship.
-2nd Topanga A League.
Will post more details and stream links closer to the time if someone else has not done so already.
@thegoldencat7:When Level Up worked with Tournament Legacy, that was a blow up too. They fixed the brackets so the US had a better chance of winning. Fuck Tournament Legacy.
I'll try to catch Summer Jam. Brother is getting married so I'm not sure how much I can watch, but I'll try to at least catch AE Top 8.
@JJOR64: Yeah I was looking through that thread on SRK. Pretty shocking how much shady business went down. Thank god theres so many good TOs and people like that are the exception not the rule.
Edit: Well I ended up missing Infiltration's continued domination and Yipes finally winning a well deserved MVC3 major. It was really late when I got in and they showed like three Gameoutt matches in a row so I fell asleep and missed it all.
The FGC presence on GB has definitely dwindled over the years.
Well, after Daigo well and truely molly-whopped the competition at the Japanese qualifier last night in classic beast-like fashion,
tonight is the Los Angeles, Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament qualifier.
Its going to be pretty damn stacked, with all the US killers who haven't yet qualified fighting it out for the last two American qualifier spots for the finals in San Francisco.
The stream will be here at 1.00pm PDT.

@flstyle: Was Civil War the tournament where they gave out replica Civil War swords to the winners last year? If so, this tournament should be pretty good. Chris G attained Santoryu last year, so I imagine things can only get crazier this year.
@jewunit: Correct, all the finals are today. Spooky's doing Tekken Tag 2 finals on stream 1 - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky/new Arturo's doing Mortal Kombat 9 finals on stream 2 - http://www.twitch.tv/nycfurby/new, Injustice and the Capcom games will be later in the day.
NorCal Regionals is next weekend, that is a Road to EVO major, I'll pop a blog up about it on Monday.
