While I was playing Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition i met the Street Fighter community here in the Philippines and they informed me of an upcoming 2 on 2 tournament happening on May 7. So if anybody in the Philippines interested in joining or even just supporting their event go check out the details now.
The tourney details are as follows:

Prizes: 1st prize - 5k 2nd prize - 3k
Both winners will receive Unisilver watches and GC's as well + TROPHY!
Rules and Format:
Format: Double Elimination
Hardware/Software: Tourney will be played on SDTVs and the PS3 Console Players are highly encouraged to bring their own sticks and pads, if you don't have one, you can ask willing people at the venue to lend you one. SSF4 console version will be used as we don't have AE yet for the consoles.
Match-type: Race to 2-sets, Race to 2 rounds, KOF style (winner stays)
Character selection: Characters are selected before the SET starts, NO counterpicking, 2 pre-registered chars per player. Same characters in one team is allowed.
REGISTRATION (IMPORTANT): People are highly encouraged to register their team on the site (online) so we get an idea on how many participants are expected to better prepare logistics and bracketing. We cannot promise anything for on-site registration. so hurry and register your team asap. State team name and the characters that will be used upon registration.
If any of you are interested in joining this event go to this thread now to register your team.
If I can find a partner for the tourney I'll participate, if not i'll go regardless to support them. Here in the Philippines, Tekken is still the big fighting game but there's a big Street Fighter community over here doing their own tournaments every now and then. Again, if you're a Street Fighter player/fan or even a fan of any 2d fighting game, even if you don't plan to participate go support them. The community is called Pinoy2dfighters and they also support other games like King of Fighters, Marvel vs Capcom 3, and Blazeblue. You can go check their site here.
