With the release of Street Fighter x Tekken and its gem system, the weekly tournaments have detailed their plans on whether or not competitors would be able to use them. A recent announcement from Spooky reveals that Big Two will disable the use of gems, and that tonight’s stream will be moved from TwitchTV to own3D for a trial run. Alex Valle also spoke up earlier this week, announcing that Street Fighter x Tekken will be replacing Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 for the rest of Wednesday Night Fight’s second season, and they too will be disabling gems until the USB tournament mode becomes available. Lastly, Kineda has also confirmed Thursday Night Throwdowns will have the gem system disabled at Street Fighter x Tekken’s debut tomorrow, rounding out the three major weeklies. This is all done in an attempt to bypass the wait time for matches to start, but could easily change when tournament mode debuts in the future.
