I Don’t Even (Listen to This) Podcast E23 – Casual Friendlies (feat. Dreadtech & Pudge)


This week we sat down with Super Smash Overlords Dreadtech and Pudge to talk compatibility between Smash and the FGC at large, how/if we can all get along and why casuals is objectively a better term than friendlies.

*Skype audio is initially a bit shaky but stabilises after the break! You’ll hear where it gets shoddy but picks back up around the 1:07 mark

[ONLINE] Natsu Cup – Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Round Robin Tournament – February 27th

Prepare to strike as Australia’s Third Strike community will be running an online round robin tournament on February 27th, bringing in a healthy dose of competition that will include seasoned veterans as well as the next generation of 3S players. Natsu Cup is the first of four online tournaments that will have 2 groups of 5 players, Group A and B, battling it out to make their way to the top of the ladder. The competition will commence on February 27th and will go on throughout the week.

At the conclusion of the event, the top player in each group will receive: 1 entry fee paid to any Australian fighting game major (Note: this does not include additional tournament entries, flights or accommodation), or a donation of $250 made out to a licensed charity of their choosing. The event will also have a promotion and relegation rule where the top 2 players from Group B will then qualify for Group A, while the bottom 2 players from Group A will no longer qualify for Group A and will be relegated to Group B.

Here are the players and the characters they will be using from each group:

Group A

Genxa (Yun)

Group B

RandomSDMF (Ken)

Matches will be played on the Fightcade platform, where the replays will then be uploaded to the Aussie Battlers YouTube channel during the week following the commencement of the tournament.

To stay updated on the Natsu Cup and all things 3S in Australia, or if you’d like to be a part of future online tournaments, make sure to join the AUS/NZ Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike fighters group on Facebook.
