I was going to say that it seemed strange for Summer Jam to be running Exe: Late instead of Exe: Late[st], but apparently that concern was unfounded after checking the official schedule. In for that and DoA5:LR.

If Salem wins Smash Con or at least makes it to Top 8 he's going to completely decimate the PGRv4. He's well on his way to being a Top 5 Smash 4 player and finally solidifying Bayo as the best character in the game.

So stoked. Anyone know if Momochi and Nemo playing?
Nemo is there. I'm kinda bummed that Tokido isn't there, but hey, at least we get to see Aiai's Juri. Hopefully he does well enough so that we can see him play.

Its nice that Momochi and Choco got to make this a premiere event. Hopefully their students do well.

Beats EVO champ one week, washed up a week later to a random Japanese player a week later.

OK, I've actually heard of Ponzaman but man it's nice to see what kind of talent they have there since most can't travel. We almost saw Verloren losing to a Japanese Laura player that I don't think anybody outside Japan has heard of.

She's been a secondary for him for awhile.

ZeRo is damn good at Melee. If he put some decent time in it, he could probably be top 20.
Yeah, Armada even said he has the potential to be at the very top if ZeRo dedicated all his time to it. But why do that when you're already the #1 at Smash 4?

Also this Smash Con combo contest was ridiculous, especially this one combo in particular.

So Verloren almost loses(still wanted to mention it even though he won), Xiaohai lost, and now Dogura lost. Between their 3 opponents, I've only heard of Ponzaman who beat Xiaohai. No clue who the other two were.
