As I mentioned on Discord, for those who have reported battle codes (replays), please try to send me the files so I can upload them on YouTube. All I need is the replay files from your SD, you don't need to have CFW or anything (although if you do it makes it easier for me). Either way just contact me here or on discord if you have any questions regarding how to extract the files. It won't harm your 3DS or your save file or anything.

I welcome the opportunity to announce that my opponent, Eric Jiang234, won the second round versus me in 2 games.
I feel like I could've had a shot in the first game with a tiny bit more luck, but you were clearly the better player in game 2 and you fully deserve to advance to the next round. Well played!

Game 1 - TMNW-WWWW-WWX5-MBA9 (Eric Jiang234)
Game 2 - X3BG-WWWW-WWX5-MBB7 (Eric Jiang234)

Good luck to all of the remaining participants and special thanks go to our host, locoghoul, for hosting the tournament in the first place.

Guess since Eisen and Eric already played and posted the results for R3, I'll go ahead and post here too in order to save Loco a thread.

Ended up winning 2-1 vs Kanon90 in three great games. Sorta blew the second match, but match 1 and 3 both came down to the wire, and if it weren't for some unfortunate luck in the last round, the results could've been very different


GGs again man!
