An FAQ for the upcoming release of VF5FS Ver.B was released on SEGA's official VF site today. For arcade goers in Japan, it contains important information in regards to continuation of VF.Net services, card upgrades, and so on. But most importantly for the rest of us, it confirms that this upgrade will contain no changes to game balance.
Happy New Year to all VFDC members for 2015! With a new year comes new opportunities and many possibilities. Whatever comes your way, will you be prepared? Let's see how many seconds you'll last! Are you ready for this?
With season VI coming up on January 15, I thought it was time to "reboot" the VFLive thread. For those who don't know, VFLive is a series of weekly online VF5: FS tournaments hosted over Xbox Live. This season there will be prizes of Xbox gift cards for the top three of the season.
As before, tournaments will be held on Xbox Live, on Thursdays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM U.S.A. Eastern Time.
The winner of each tournament is awarded three points toward their overall score for the season, with 2nd and 3rd place scoring 2 and 1 point respectively. This season in addition to the usual weekly tournaments, we'll also be holding events worth double points once a month. At the end of the season, the three players with the highest overall score will receive the following prizes:
Season champion - $30 in Xbox gift cards (two $15 codes)
2nd place - $20 in Xbox gift cards (one $15 code, one $5 code)
3rd place - $15 Xbox gift card (one $15 code)

I'm not one that takes much stock in rumours, because, well, anyone can make up a rumour without any real consequence for being wrong. However, when the rumour comes from a somewhat credible source, then you can't help but take notice. NeoGAF user Verendus, an apparent insider to the Japanese Video Games industry recently posted that a "New Virtua Fighter game [is] to come" among a list of other gaming related rumours. This probably comes as no surprise to some given the recent end-of-life announcement of VF5FS Ver.B in Japanese arcades. Out with the old, and in with the new? Time will only tell!
I'm pleased to announce the new Media section now officially open on VFDC! This library has been initially curated by our Media Managers @BLACKSTAR and @oneida and contains a wide selection of VF related videos and playlists ranging from tournaments, challenges and tutorials. Read on for a full feature breakdown.
The time has come again for Virtua Fighter Relationship's (VFR) Beat-Tribe Cup, the biggest Virtua Fighter event of the year! While 2013 was the 20th anniversary of the Virtua Fighter game series, 2014 is the 20-year milestone for VFR, organized by Isamu Yamagishi. Last year, Sega awarded Yamagashi with the title "実況" (Jikkyou, roughly translated as "Live Broadcaster") for his contribution to the VF scene. Players will compete for the 15th Beat-Tribe Cup on November 23rd 2014. Read on for additional information and check the post in the coming days for more information on the "miracle festival"!
