This past Wednesday we were treated to some surprise news, that Juicebox, a top 8 EVO player was going to be showing up to the weekly Dragonpunch tournament.
Needless to say, some of our competitors were psyched to hear about this. We had a few players come down to the League to play him in King of Fighters, and I had the pleasure of playing a friendly game with his Yang in 3rd Strike.
Check out some videos of his excellent skills at EVO:
Super Smash Bros.: "Real" Brawl
King of Fighters
*Gotta get the rest of the brackets from David
So, it may not be much of a surprise that Juicebox took 1st in Street Fighter 4 and King of Fighters, but we actually got to see a good show in finals with Sam taking 2 rounds in Winner's Finals before going down and Theo took a 3-0 first set win coming from loser's bracket in Grand Finals against Juicebox's Juri. Final set Juicebox broke out his Abel and won 3-0 for the final set. Sam and Theo did the local scene proud and we were happy to get such a strong player to visit us at the League and show us a thing or two.
Thanks for everyone coming out to the League last night for a fun fight night.
Dive Kick was still one of the biggest draws with some newer players showing off their divin' and kickin' skills.

4) Kyle the Wario Bikeflip Master
Shoutouts to Tasty & Spicy for best overall Smashers for all three Smash Bros. games; these two are from Ashland area. Special shoutout to Kyle who puts on the best show for the audience, he's not known as the "Bike flip master" for nothing!
Every last attendee at the event helped make a hype and fun event so successful, I'd like to thank each and every person who came to compete, spectate, and participate in this event.

Due to popular demand, a weekly puzzle game tournament night is coming at you every Thursday night at the Shoryuken League.
Puzzle game events used to be hosted alongside fighting games every wednesday night, thanks to a crossover game called Super Puzzle Fighter Turbo. As "Dragonpunch" fight nights progressed, the puzzle games were pushed aside so that newer fighting game releases could be featured. That left an ignored demographic of puzzle gamers.
However, I talked to Shoryuken League about bringing these games back to the people on a different night, and things fell in order well enough to give it a chance on Thursday nights.
Look for a Puzzle Party page to go up on OCG very soon for more details!
Comin' right at you is the 2nd to last Smash tournament of the summer season. R3V0LUTION #7 - Reflex!
