After about a month of inactivity SCTier is finally back to provide the community with some pre-tournament coverage. This time we have the Northeast major, Winter Brawl with the veteran kAb as our guest. In the context of the current competitive scene this event can seem like a warm up, or a precursor to the upcoming Final Round. On the interviewer side of things there is Partisan, Jimbonator, and that one nameless desperado.

SCTier is currently getting back into gear and has things such as post-tournament coverage and other non-podcast media on the way. Once again, this project has massive potential and would love to hear any form of suggestion and feedback.

So without further ado, here is the pre-Winter Brawl podcast featuring kAb.

It’s time for the first post-tournament podcast by SCTier! In the guise of killing two birds with one stone, we covered both SCR 2013 and APEX, featuring Xephukai and The Jimbonator as guests respectively. We also have Greatone and a shady mystery guest to express their views and entertain you. These podcasts will typically talk about the event itself, how it was presented, and the behind the scenes not caught on stream.

For those of you who are not in the know yet, SCTier is a budding Calibur de facto project designed to keep the community up to date on tournament listings, coverage, tutorials, and all things Calibur. At the head of SCTier you have your very own SCPartisan and Xephukai.

In years past, there's usually a down period after the conclusion of EVO until the next major event for us, but this year, there hasn't been much of a down period in major tournaments hosting Soulcalibur with plenty of events to check out going into 2013.

There were also some people asking about posting events on the front page, so I thought that it would be great to create one post for the upcoming events and include details and videos for those who are interested in attending. Click here to see the list of upcoming events...

August 24th- Aug. 27th, While America had it's own major tournament (MLG), in Germany, East Brandenburg Open (EBO for short), was also going on. Big names such as Ring, Hyrul, Malek, Pantocrator, daGOTTh, JAG, and others that can be viewed further into the article, were battling it out for the "champion" title of EBO.

With the aftermath proving to be in Ring's favor, I thought I'd catch up with some of the top placers via EBO. As well as posting the results, links towards the videos, and pictures taken by our very own community members all the way from Germany. Continued after the break...
