    Hello everyone!

    So there has been talk, as well as some organization being done for the past week regarding the 5 vs 5 match Japan wants to have against the US in Skullgirls. I will be streaming this event on Twitch.tv/kpblive (thanks @dapurplesharpie ) at 8 pm pst tomorrow. I have received most of the information but here is what I have so far:

    There will be two Exhibition sets of Matches. The first one (the undercard) will be a 2/3 and the main event will be 3/5. Here is Japan's line up for the 2/3:

    Rikai vs @ShadeMoneh
    Shidama vs @Duckator
    KST vs @Saske
    Mashiro vs @WingZero
    Amabane vs @cloudKing211

    No word yet on who from the US will be playing them. So once I know who is going to playing this set of players, I message the Japaneses organizer asap.

    For the main event, here is the sets to be played:

    Jabara vs @SonicFox5000
    Sasami vs @Dolfinh
    Ginger vs @Swiftfox-Dash
    159man vs @mcpeanuts (get ready for that A-Train assist to come for your ass)
    Sig vs. @dekillsage

    I can't lie, and say I will have the pleasure of streaming this. I have been told to instruct the NA players to enter, and exit the lobby in accordance with the match order on the streaming. I keep in contact with the Japanese organize throughout the event in case any problems do come up. I will have some overlays ready for tomm night's big event, and I make sure to share this out as much as I can to get more people to come and watch this.

    P.S.
    Shoutouts to @render for helping out as well!

    i've seen "team fights" like these--the winner of a match/set would stay while the next person in the loser's team would step up and try again. this would keep going kung-fu style until all of one team loses except the first person, who gets a final shot after the rest of the team loses. was this format considered or would that take too lng?

    ...wait, is this tonight?

    KaboomKid Sure would be nice. ...TUNA FISH!

    Wow, this is big news! Have online Japan vs. America exhibitions been done at this scale for any other recent fighting game, let alone ever for a Western developed one? Only other games I can think of are classics like ST that are, of course, using GGPO.

    I hope everything runs smooth. This might be another achievement for Skullgirls to add into the FG history books.

    Hey so I'm watching the Meltdown right now and I'm thinking, Clawmaster probably shouldn't be the one to stream this. Anyone else willing to host it?

    I'm running the stream aside Clawmaster so there shouldn't be any issues on the stream side.

    If there IS disconnection on his side, I'll be picking it up for the rest of the tournament.
    I'll also be recording it locally in HD so that I can upload it to KPB YouTube the next day.

    I've been really impressed with 159man ever since MMDS posted that long set against him in the videos subforum. I watched it a bunch of times and learned how to do all of his combos, resets, setups etc and played the team at my offline locals. I also tried playing on quick match as 610man and ran into him which I think is actually how this all got started lol. Super awesome to get to play him, definitely one of the strongest players I've ever played against.

    I'm really glad I got the opportunity to commentate this. Having a new perspective like this gives me more inspiration to learn the game beyond my characters.

    Thanks for putting me on.

    Personally loved your commentary. Most knowledgeable commentator I've heard. But I think you would go well with a hype man.

    When you called out the M beat extend and when you called a delayed throw tech, I was impressed. Only good players that play a lot would see those things (like I did, but I'm not good, just play alot)


    Hope you commentate more sg stuff in the future.


    Well played to all.
    I was SUPER HYPE to see dekillsage cancel his Fukua cr.mk into armor throw to beat the pbgc... Sickest read I've seen and really hit home for me because I've been teaching the local peeps to stay away from that move on block because it is pbgc bait, and destroying them when they do it. But to see sage destroy my strat in such a smart fashion and with such a clutch fucking read... Man. I was hype at the skill level shown.


    And 159man is the shit. Just saying. Very entertaining sets from all.

    Uploading is taking a little bit longer than I expected.

    YouTube playlist where all videos will be located is here.


    I've only managed to upload the first two matches for now, but will continue editing and uploading all videos in 1080p.

    @dapurple when are the rest of the videos going to be up? And can we get a playlist for NEC? All the other games have one. The videos are there, but hard to sift through the way things are now.
