So is it like a 'Fight Club' of videogame?

Plus, fighting in videogames is like lottery; you can never win all the time; even a 20 years experienced veteran of Street Fighter or MK can lose the 10 days gamers often

I wish they would bring back Smash Bros instead.

Daigo Umehara is a pretty good example of a veteran SF pro who still wins consistently.

I think they should add Blazblue along to this list

Depends on the game somewhat, but that's generally not true. A couple small mistakes aren't going to stop you from advancing in the tournament when you play 3 or 5 game sets, and it's also double-elimination. Especially in SF and MK, those are really defense-heavy games where experience prevails over luck. I imagine top players lose out early occasionally on MvC3, just because the comboes in that game are ridiculous, but I really doubt it happens much.

Yeah, a lot of American tournaments are Double-Elim, and very few are Single-Elim. Some circuits also feature Team Tournaments where you play 3v3 with a survival set up. The team player who wins stays while the opposer switches to the next until all three members are defeated on either team.

I can't really speak much for these games, since I'm more into the Blazblue side of things.
