European XBox Live Street Fighter 2 HDR

This is Remy77077’s current all-time favourite fighting game, and Agoners used to run occasional online tournaments for those on XBox Live in Europe. Due to time  & commitment constraints, added to the fact the awful XBL updates have made this even harder to run than it used to be, there are no future tournaments currently planned. But I wanted to keep this page up as a record of previous events.

The main reason I did this was to give some kind of long-term incentive structure to those within Europe who are unlucky enough to not be able to get to any real offline tournaments, like Vs Fighting and Super Vs Battle in the UK, or Stunfest in France. It’s also because, although the game has an excellent ranking system, it’s ranked mode of play is flawed because it does not match based on ping times – which is especially annoying for those in Europe when most of the player base is in America, and because it does not ban the broken character Akuma (aka Gouki, Demon), or disallow cheating such as turbo button functions – so it can be a very frustrating experience to play.

Obviously in a game designed for offline play nothing can replace true tournaments, but online play does have some benefits, and my goal was always to take advantage of that and help to foster a good online community for SF2 HDR as much as I could do.
