Just to add regarding the success of the first ranbat. It was very surprising that so many players set aside their egos to join the tourney (20 entrants is relatively high given the recent turnouts). It was fun and it seemed like people were easy going, which is quite rare these days in our 3s community. If this is any indication of the future, we can assume that Toronto's 3S scene is going to make a come back! Interest was dying for this game after some players retired and left. But if people, like anyone reading this entry just JOINS THE DAMN GAME, we should be back kicking American ass in no time. There's nothing to lose except maybe $10? Just don't pussy and join (this includes "I don't like tourneys"). Japanese and even the guys at FFA play for fun and hardly worry about losing. I don't know why anyone allows that to stop them from joining. If you don't join I'll probably end up bitching at you if I see you so may as well join to shut me up. Once again, thanks everyone for coming out and making it fun.

Practice hard everyone!
