Season’s Beatings went ahead last weekend, October 15th to 17th. Teamspooky streamed the event, and it was bloody brilliant.
Aside from the quality of the stream itself, there were some incredibly hype matches, and the level of play was very high.
Spooky has now uploaded a ton of the matches from the stream to a new youtube account that was created especially for the event. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/user/SeasonsBeatingsGDLK and feel the hype!

The only downside of the stream as a UK viewer was the hour and a half of Choco Blanka. Seemed a bit overkill. Actually, in saying that, Blanka is also possibly my least favourite character to watch.
Anyways, the whole competition was that FI-YA and I’ll be pencilling it into my diary for next year. Just get Yipes more time on the mic!
