TST IV: Live IV the Fight (Aug 15-16)


This is it the big Winnipeg major! This is the tournament where you want to perform your best, well at least for the ones not going to Evo. Shane again is the top player to gun down in several games. Russel is the defending champ at TST but Wilson has been running through him in the past few tournaments. Can he finally come through and win the big one?

Those are some of the stories going into the event. Be sure to get in the practice and lets put on a show! With some of the new games coming out we are planning to run tournaments for them. The list is subject to change depending on what you guys want. Remember folks that this tournament doesn’t run without input from everyone. If enough people speak up we will do what we can to compensate for it. On to the details.

  • Entry Fee to Site: FREE
  • Rules can be found here.

Please keep in mind that things may change between now and TST in August, seem keep your eyes on here and on the original forum post for TST IV.

The schedule for TST can be found below.



FOCUSattack Episode 3: Baselan 17

After a long wait, the next episode of FOCUSattack has finally arrived. This time around, we give insight into one of the biggest gaming events/LAN parties of the year, Baselan 17, hosted by AYB(AllYourBase). Of course Chip Damage was also there to host the games we are known best for, Street Fighter IV and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

The event was a pretty big hit, with plenty of returning players as well as plenty of spectators amazed at our skill to mash buttons.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this event, so a few others part of the scene, Bishop(John) & vbits(Henry) filmed most of the footage caught in this episode. As well as ShinAkuma(Shane) and his company, “The Edge of Imagination” made it possible to capture every moment of tournament footage from both games.

Along with game footage, a few interviews are introduced throughout the episode. Be sure to check back in our media section sometime soon where the rest of the interviews will be added. You can also check out all the tournament footage from both Street Fighter IV and Melee in our media section.

Also, special thanks goes out to ShmickMusic.com for letting us use some of his amazing music throughout the episode.

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show and expect more announcements in the near future of when and where FOCUSattack Episode 4 will happen. Also, you may want to watch all until the end, as there may be a bit of a surprise.

Street Fighter IV Rules:

  • Version: PS3

    • If you wish, you may request a double-blind pick. What will happen then is both players will secretly tell the director their character choice(s) and must choose that at the start of the round.
    • Players are highly advised to supply their own controllers. We claim no responsibility if you are unable to find some way to supply yourself with a controller.
    • For pad players, you are required to turn the pad you are using OFF or face being down a round in the following set or DQ’d altogether.

    • Accidentally pausing the game at any time during the fight may force you to forfeit the round (solely at a judge’s discretion).
