This past saturday Ensenada visited Team SLR for some casual matches, below are the highlights.
A quick note: There is a long standing rivalry between them since they are from neighboring towns, you can check previous SLR vs Ensenada matches in their Youtube Channel
First up we have AelNoS against Villegas in a First to 10 Set, there’s some sloppy play but AelNoS went to prove that he has been training and has invited the team to do the same.
Next is AelNoS vs Isostrife in a FT10
And finally we have a 3v3 First to 7 set, each one is using their own character, the roster is as follows:
Ensenada: AelNoS (Kyo, Kim, others), QDN (Mr. Karate, Clark), Fernando (Duo Lon, Ralf, Others)
SLR: Rozen (EX Iori), Villegas (Kim), Isostrife (Yuri)
We have quite a treat for you today. DarkGeese just uploaded this FT5 set between Reynald and ZeroBlack which took place after CEO. The video also features the first part of the Reynald vs Misterio FT10 set that showcased some of the highest level of KOF XIII gameplay to this day.
The Misterio match begins after the 14:44 mark:
Stay tuned for part 2 of the Reynald vs Misterio match.
UPDATE: The FT10 set is now uploaded and yours to enjoy:
Team SLR from Mexico had a surprise visit from Huevo, Kula, Khanibalito and local Tijuana players and wasted no time in providing an awesome stream!
They arrived in Tijuana early and decided to pay Rorarito a visit while they wait for international competition to arrive for The KOF Challenge II which will be held on Saturday July 5th. Below are the highlighted replays from yesterday stream.
Kula vs Huevo

Huevo vs Khanibalito
Check out Team SLR’s Youtube channel for more KOF Replays.
THE KOF CHALLENGE II is here, this time around we have many international high level players, among them E.T. from Taiwan, Zero Black and Misterio from Chile, Rolando from Colombia, Dante from Perú and many more may still confirm.
This tournament was created so that both Mexican and International players have the chance to compete amongst each other before Evo. It is a huge opportunity since many of the high level Mexican players cannot travel to Evo, this makes THE KOF CHALLENGE II a great spot for local and international communities to meet, share techniques, learn, train, compete and enjoy a good time with each other.
The event will take place on Saturday July 5th (weekend before Evo) in Downtown Tijuana (about 10 minutes from the Tijuana-San Ysidro international border)
If you are near the SoCal area you guys should really try to stop by.
Entry Fee $50 Pesos (4 dlls) Tournament Cost: $ 100 pesos (8dlls). Registration from 2 to 5pm and the Tournament starts at 6pm. If you want to enter as a spectator the fee is $25 pesos 2(dlls)
