Well it was 64 entrant, with each person being allowed to choose up to three characters ;(
There were about 28 people in all, some picking three but most picking one or two. The guy I was playing was pretty much my only challenge...I knocked out one of his guys, he knocked out one of mine, and I finally beat him the third time to completely knock him out of the tourney.
But seriously, he had six or seven people around him cheering him on. The worst part is that after I lost, his chum was all for sportsmanship and shaking hands. Didn't say shit when I won.
