      He goes by Haatosama and was doubly eliminated in the 1.1 qualifiers by Barugo. In the qualifiers, I believe Haato switched to Jeffry for some game(s) after his Taka loses. Interestingly, I think he is playing in a Jeffry team for Pre BT this weekend.

      6266713f-4686-4656-a7a5-6ca3fe961d2a.jpeg Update to the Challenge Cup series. As of right now, the U22 category is being replaced with a 3on3 Team Tournament. The goal is to create a team event where the younger generation can positively interact with the older generations.

      The requirement in team composition is that one player on the team must be between the age of 12 and 22.

      Each player on the winning team will get a trophy and also a Qanba Obsidian with an eSports design:

      Will try to update this and with better formatting when I have time. No official stream, but many of the players stream their play on their personal streams (usually through YouTube). Online qualifiers on October 1st, offline finals in November 6.

      YouTube video time=stamped. I did a preview of the Challenge Cup 1.2 Qualifier participants.

      No official stream from SEGA, but many participants usually stream the event from their POV. You can use this https://kakuge-checker.com/stream/vf/ to get a quick list of VF streamers (Friday night in North America, past midnight in Europe).

      If home internet is stable, I will likely provide links to participants POV vids / brackets in the previous post.
