And yet another WTF lol.
He will be at Anime Ascension now. For what it's worth.
Edit: WCS is FT1 matches. Japan Format. Lol. At least there is a losers' bracket.
The chances of anyone winning just increased by a lot.
Xiaohai is one of the players that often loses in the beginning and comes back after studying his opponent mid match (and coming back from losers) so it feels like this is to his disadvantage.
M' and Picnic (the Japanese players) on the other hand should be very used to this.
Who will replace Reynald though? It will have to be someone from Japan since this is super short notice. I mean heck they have Kindevu on commentary, he actually attended a lot of KOFXIV tournaments in Japan and even traveled to Chinese tournaments for it (and did extremely well, his Luong is scary af). He could be a great option for a last minute special invite.
