Dream Cancel Live! Episode 41: Announcing The Journey To Dream Cancel Cup

Announcing the Dream Cancel Cup and the Journey to Dream Cancel Cup Tournament Circuit:
In an effort to bring more KOF centric events to the scene, we present to you the inaugural Dream Cancel Cup and the Journey to Dream Cancel Cup Tournament Circuit Series.
The first installment of Dream Cancel Cup is planned to be held in January 2016, at Winter Showdown 3 in Colorado. The Dream Cancel Cup will be run yearly by Dream Cancel Staff in cooperation of local KOF/SNK communities across the United States. The first Dream Cancel Cup will focus on KOFXIII, KOF98UMFE, and KOF2002UM. More SNK and KOF titles will be added in the future. More details will follow in a separate announcement.
The Journey to Dream Cancel Cup Tournament Circuit is our upcoming tournament series to bolster support for KOF communities across the country. The Dream Cancel Cup Tournament Circuit features many forms of tournaments, ranging from the large premier tournaments, to smaller ranking battles and online tournaments around the year, which ultimately culminate at the end of the year at the Dream Cancel Cup.

Details about the Dream Cancel Cup and the Journey to Dream Cancel Cup Tournament Circuit:
The Dream Cancel Cup is an open entry tournament but winners of premier tournaments will gain a special title (and 1st bonus pot prize) and will be invited to join the Dream Cancel Cup to play against other Premier tournament winners of the Journey to Dream Cancel Cup circuit to ensure a high level of competition at the Dream Cancel Cup at the end of the year.

The Journey to Dream Cancel Cup is a yearlong tournament circuit to prepare players leading up to the Dream Cancel Cup in January. The Journey to Dream Cancel Cup will feature 4 main types of events: premier tournaments, ranking battles, online tournaments/events and one-on-one first to 10 battles. PlayKOF points will be awarded to the participants in each of the events. The PlayKOF points will be used for seeding at the EVO KOF side tournament and the Dream Cancel Cup. The PlayKOF points will be documented on dreamcancel.com to keep track of player’s progress. Players will be able to earn PlayKOF points up until the week before Dream Cancel Cup.
The premier tournaments will be used for players to qualify to be directly invited to the Dream Cancel Cup. In addition to earning the highest amount of PlayKOF points, winners of premier tournaments will gain a special title (and 1st bonus pot prize) and will be invited to the Dream Cancel Cup to play against other Premier tournament winners of the Journey to Dream Cancel Cup at the end of the year for exhibition matches.

The list of Premier Tournaments that are a part of the Journey To Dream Cancel Cup Circuit are as follow:

Lonestar Admonition (TX) April
CafeID IGT 2015 (Korea) April
Combo Breaker (IL) May
Hyper Battle (CO) June

More premier events and details will be revealed and announced soon.

KOFXIII: Ryo Sakazaki & King Combo Video By Persona

Our guy PersonaEntertainment is back with two new combo videos, showing crazy possibilities with Ryo Sakazaki & King!

Be sure to check out the description section, he shares his thoughts on how he comes up with these combos, including notations!

“Although Ryo is a character that requires a low amount of execution, it was very difficult thinking up new ways to push his limits until I remembered that Ryo can juggle some characters higher than usual allowing new ways to juggle. To even push his character specific juggles further, Ryo has character specific juggles that allows him to trade sides with the opponent, allowing for some rather stylish options. I guess the hitboxes for characters in the game are quite different afterall?”

“King’s juggles pretty much go in one direction (which means there’s not much room to optimize) so I feel that I’ve pretty much completed her combos on my first try other than one combo. I felt something about the combo was off and I realized that I could get 4 more damage by adjusting it. There’s other juggles that I’ve seen around (for the arcade version) but sadly they don’t work for the console version or else I would be able to improve this video further. So yeah, not much in terms of improvements but at least you can now watch it in 60 frames per second.”
