Help us celebrate 20 years of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and join the Jazzy Circuit—the only gaming league dedicated solely to 3S! Players from all over the world are invited to compete in officially sanctioned 3S events in hopes of landing a coveted spot in the 16-person Jazzy Circuit Finale at Defend the North 2019!
There are 3 ways to qualify for the Jazzy Circuit Finale. The first is to win one of the 7 Auto-Qualifiers scheduled for Season One. The winner of an Auto-Qualifier automatically earns a spot in the Jazzy Circuit Finale. In the event that a player who has already qualified should win another qualifier, that spot will be awarded to 2nd place, and so on. Auto-qualifiers receive complimentary airfare to the Jazzy Circuit Finale (restrictions apply).*
Additional spots in the Jazzy Circuit Finale will be awarded to the 5 players who earn the most points WITHOUT winning a Jazzy Qualifier. Players earn points by competing in Ranking Events sanctioned by the Jazzy Circuit Board. The number of points a player can earn depends on 2 factors: 1) The number of participants and 2) the platform used to run 3S.
Organizers who wish to have their 3S tourneys sanctioned as official Ranking Events must meet the following requirements: 1) At least 16 players must compete in the tourney 2) The tourney must be run on arcade hardware or 30th Anniversary for PlayStation 4 3) Footage of Top 8 must be streamed or recorded and 4) The stream must display the Jazzy Circuit logo.
A Last Chance Qualifier will be held at the Jazzy Circuit Finale to determine who will fill the remaining 4 spots in the 16-person tournament.
