Thanks a lot Diavle (beat me to it). This is something that a lot of people should watch, and all should take notes on too.

I'm not hip to nico live broadcasts, but do you need a premium membership to view the broadcast? Or just regular memberships enough?

You're welcome guys but uhh.. I'm just copy/pasting Professor's info lol.

Here is his summary for yesterday's tournament:

Quote
Quick wrapup of today's seeding tournament

19 teams(37 players) entered, including 3 teams from Korea. Two of them passed through the prelims but got knocked out in their first match of the top 8. (MadKOF lost against an Athena). There were also players from France, Taiwan, and West Japan including Uuu.

Winning teams were 1st place: Team Picnic (Picnic, Rinomoto) / 2nd place: Team Myu (Myu, Tenkawa)
The players for tomorrow's Korea vs Japan were also announced:

Team Korea: MadKOF, Verna, Gutts, Lacid, Kenssouzang
Team Japan: Shoki, Dune, Ogosho, Rinomoto, Koukou

Great tournament, lots of solid matches and stuff happening I haven't seen before.

MADKof didn't leave much of a mark tbh, he was teamed up with the CafeID manager and that guy did most of the work (his King was a big problem for everyone). In the top 8 they both lost to a Saiki/Athena/Kyo (in that order), he couldn't get passed the guy's Athena. Saiki took out Shen and Athena took out Duolon and Kim. The manager actually did a way better job, the guy had to reverse OCV him with Kyo.

Oh and in case Bala was going to surprise MADKof with Yuri.... he was using her in casuals, and quite well at that (even sporting Bala's colors lol).

Kou Kou's partner ditched him and he had to play alone, Haregoro took him out (he is one of the few player's who can it seems). Surprised Haregoro wasn't included in the 5v5.

Tenwaka (Shen/Duolon/Ash) and Myu (Ralf/Clark/Vice) were awesome as usual.

What a tournament, easily the best one for XIII since EVO.

The 5v5 at the end was freaking epic.

Yes' I was amazing; Really enjoyed it. At some point I think near the final the streaming views were almost 10k.

Unfortunately I missed the 5v5 matches.

Does anyone know if the viewership number on the niconico site is concurrent viewers, or the total number of hits the broadcast got? Because it got up somewhere past 95k.

This tournament was incredibly hype, definitely inspired me to play even more.

Japan is crazy. Unfortunately they don't get enough exposure, and the best players will probably never get a sponsor to come to Evo, so you'll continue to get ignorants that think Tokido and Mago are the best kof players in Japan.

Does anyone have the footage from BOTH kof13 2on2 tournaments? There's so many matches there that are worth rewatching.

I caught the archive last night, fantastic play all around. I do hope this Evo more Japanese players make a statement. It's not like they have anything to prove, but I think people really need to see what's up with Japanese KoF.

In terms of number of great players I think Japan at the moment is top of the tree..

Although they lost the 5v5 against Korea.. they easily dominated both 2 on 2 this past weekend.
But Madkof picking Raiden in the 2 on 2 could be him sand-bagging?
