This week we have confused crimson oxen, Southeast Asian abbreviations, the same event being rebroadcast twice, hours apart, UK Smash, Michigan upstarts, running in the back, a debut event, and Dreams being hacked in South Ame- I mean Europe with digital guns.

FV x SEA Major

For this week’s Tekken world tour and Capcom pro tour event, we’re going to Malaysia for the FV X SEA Major. What do those initials stand for? I have no idea.

The website provided a “stream schedule” that isn’t actually a stream schedule at all. As it only mentions that there will be two stream channels present. It doesn’t say anything about what is being streamed where. I will continue to try and communicate with the organizers for more info and will update this post if/when I receive it.

AceKingOffSuit saves the day again. Right on time. I have no idea how he managed to get this information.

Eleague (Street Fighter V)

After weeks of of group play set up, the Street Fighter V Eleague invitational is ready for its top 8. It all ends on Friday, Jul 13th. There is no schedule, just a start time and it keeps going until it’s all over. The website states the following: “Friday, July 13, 3PM ET on Twitch and 11PM ET/PT on TBS”. Which I translate to mean that it starts at 3PM eastern time on Twitch, and then it is rebroadcast on TBS 8 hours later at 11PM on the USA east coast. Then it is broadcast again, 3 hours later, on the USA west coast’s TBS, at 11PM pacific time. I’m only going to list the Twitch start times.

Forget what I said, AceKingOffSuit has the skinny again. I was way off, but so was the Eleague website itself.

Albion 3

Smash.gg

Over in England we got Albion 3 with smash WiiU singles/doubles, Dragonball Fighters Z, and Tekken 7. Albion 3 is mainly a smash 4 event but is incorporating DBFZ and Tekken this year in an effort to expand. Maybe that should have also added Smash Melee, but that’s just one man’s opinion.

Smash.gg

This is a new event that is being hosted for the first time. The Smash.gg page states that the event was set up in an effort to give New Jersey and the Tristate Area a big event to go to. One thing that they should learn as quickly as possible is to make sure that stream schedule is set up well in advance. They are focussing on Smash WiiU and Melee, along with side events consisting of trading card games. As it is their first time, I guess I can excuse them. I’ll update the schedule once they post it.

Red Bull Conquest Qualifier - Saint Paul & Dallas

Smash.gg Saint Paul - Smash.gg Dallas

This week, Red Bull Conquest is traveling to two cities at once. Unfortunately for online viewers, Red Bull only has one esports twitch channel. Something I assume they didn’t realize until it was too late. The schedule for the Saint Paul qualifier is up, but the one for Dallas is nowhere to be found. I like to imagine a higher up going: “Who was the idiot who scheduled both events on the same day?!” If Red Bull figures this out and posts the schedule for the Dallas event, I’ll update this post.

Dreamhack Open Valencia

This week in the world of Counter Strike: Global Offensive, we have the Dreamhack Open Valencia. If you’re unaware, Valencia is in Spain. A country in Europe, not South America. It’s right next to the country of Portugal, which is also not in South America. The group stage started today, I’m afraid, with Best of 1 matches. Friday theres going to be Best of 3 group stages and then everything comes to close on Saturday with the playoffs.

If you would like to catch up a matches you’ve missed, without spoilers, I highly recommend eventvods.com. I stumbled upon it today, and whoever set this up is doing God’s work. I for one will certainly be using it.
