The 3rd TOPANGA LEAGUE heats up this weekend with the start of A League play! After a very tight race at the top of the preceding B League, four players managed to fight their way into A League: Dashio, wao, Michael-tan and Mago.

The reigning A League champion Fuudo was quite dominant in last year’s 2nd League, but since then other A Leaguers have shown strong performances, in tournament and in exhibition. Who will claim the top spot this year and claim the 1 million yen first prize?

3rd TOPANGA LEAGUE (A) Outline
