The stream should start at 6 P.M. (EST) tonight. The top four of every game, along with the top eight of SSF4 will be on Sunday. There is no schedule for the special events yet.
Super Street Fighter 4 has about 400 entrants.
Keits is running a SSF4 character-auction tournament tonight. Players will bid on each character in the game. The winner gets to enter the tournament with that character for the winning bid price. Each character in the game will be represented by only one player. Obviously, this will make characters like Dan, Hakan, and Makoto cheaper to play, while Bison, Chun, Balrog, and Rufus might cost a bit more. All characters compete for the same total pot. It should be really interesting, and I'm hoping it shows up on the stream.
