Tougeki apologizes for error

Tougeki published this statement today:

Tougeki 2011 Championship Tournament zero-round match

Due to an error on the part of Tougeki, an unintended Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition tournament zero-round match was held between TWFIGHTER (Hsien/Banana Ken) (USA) and WHITE TOWER Q8 (GANNOON/NOX2) (Kuwait). The loser of this match was thereby unable to participate in the main tournament.

We would like to express our sincerest apologies to the player unable to participate in the tournament.

Tougeki is extremely regretful for any disappointment and distress felt by TWFIGHTER and his organizer Emotiongear of Planet Zero as a result of our error.

All the staff at Tougeki will do all we can to ensure that such an unfortunate mistake does not occur again.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The issue was, according to what I have read, a miscalculation of Tougeki organizer(s). There were more teams than the quota for the SSF4AE finals. (33 teams/32spots) They then made players from Planet Zero fight with Kuwait team for the last spot. Even both teams were written as the qualifiers on the Tougeki 2011 guide book.
