yes, that was the actual name of the tourney.
basically a tourney bas threw for our american players in japan (kim, ricky, justin, floe). 85 heads showed up for the cvs2 tourney, more for the 3 on 3 tourney (i'll get to that in a second).
1st: KOK "the most gangsta of all names" (A-Blanka/Vega/Bison)
2nd: Bas "the american dream" (A-Vega/Bison/Blanka)
3rd: Nakanishi "japanese choi" (C-Ryu/Guile/Sagat)
our american reps? ...let's just say they didn't do too well.
anyway, there was also a Melty Blood team tourney going on during the CvS2 singles, and apparently the crowd over there was getting really wild. the arcade was in the middle of a mall, so I guess the manager was pretty fidgety about all the noise being made. the result? the CvS2 3 on 3 tourney was cancelled by the manager. can you say wiggity wiggity wack?
even worse, a lot of fools came only for the team tournament. Sawada, Kindebu and Mago (SBO2 champion team) were among them.
oh well. if anybody has results from the newton 3s tourney that happened afterwards (i'm looking at you, fubarduck/mopreme) couldja post em up in here?
as of 12/02/09:
me: did pz john ever give the japanese players their money
