- Komoda is traveling abroad so Guts got his spot.
- Looks like the Game41 crew -- Unipon's team above -- is going to visit from way up north.
- A team with a prelim-winning player on it (a "seed") gets to skip the first round.
- You can check out videos from the preliminary contests over here.
- In other ST tourney news, X-Mania 10 is scheduled for August 23rd at Takadanobaba Mikado.
