Backstory: Just a heads up for you guys, I decided to try a 3s revival here on the EC called the 3rd Ascension League, obviously starting with NY, by holding regular Danisen Battles, tournaments, exhibitions, sessions and streaming them at the same time to grow interest, I already have a site setup and stream channel to use so if we can pull our weight together I’m sure we’ll eventually see a revival the same way ST was brought back, especially considering a chunk of 3s players from Japan were at Evo too
Here’s the site: http://3rdascension.webs.com/
You can register on the site and stay up to date on any upcoming events, danisen battles, or special streams, and by listing your characters, I’ll register you onto the Danisen list so you can simply come and play to rank up.
I’m trying to really bring everything back so we won’t be stuck in the shadows anymore, we can’t sit on our asses and expect 3s to be hype only by Japan itself, we all need to do something and this is where we can start. Hopefully you guys check out the stream this weekend, promote it, or whatever so we can start the season big before the Capcom 25th Anniversary Tournament.

Event: We start at 6pm and go through a winner stays on format (exactly like casuals) and the rules for the Danisen are explained below and on the 3rd Ascension League website
Newcomers start off at 1st Dan.
- Players generally fight against others of either the same rank or one rank above/below you in order to go up a rank.
- One match won = +1 point, one match lost = -1 point. +3 points moves you up one rank, -3 points moves you down one rank.
- The ranks are 1st to 10th Dan. Past 10th Dan are special ranks such as “Kyousha”(“strong man”).
- Players past 10th Dan can only fight against others of the same rank. +5 points moves you up one rank, -3 points moves you down one rank.
****- Ranked players can play in other arcades with their rankings as is. ****
****- Players can register with more than one character under their name. ****
(EX: Kuroda Q/ Kuroda Ken/ Kuroda Akuma)
Example: Players register a character e.g. Kuroda enters Ryu, into the league. Starting at the bottom or 1st Dan, players then compete in a winner stays on system earning points. A win earns +1 point and a loss -1 point, when a player reaches +3 points they’re promoted to the next rank and visa versa -3 points a demotion. There are 10 ‘Dans’ or ‘Ranks’, upon reaching 10th Dan there are more special Dans to reach such as ‘Strong’, ‘Man of Valor’, ‘King’ plus a couple more, to reach these you need to earn +5 points for promotion but -3 points still leads to a demotion.
