They are led by Jon Lim, and will have Dixon ‘GambleBoxer’ Pang (Balrog) and Sherman ‘SleepIsGood’ Lum (M. Bison) as reserves.
“I have complete faith in the team, that they will deliver the results and put up an all-star performance. They will most definitely entertain,” said Jon, captain of the team.
As if backing him up, top Sagat player Leslie cheekily added on Facebook: “put me an get a OCV (one character victory). Doesn’t matter if I’m first or last to come out.”
We’re looking forward to entertaining, if not victorious, matches this weekend. The tournament is expected to run approximately 6 hours, to 2000hrs that evening.
