This September marks the beginning of VF Circuit - Season 2! Several important additions and changes are made for Season 2 including the option for online team-based events with flexible scheduling and the use of the replay upload game feature. The season will also see a change to the individual events format such that online matches will be played outside of room mode.
Hey VFDC! I'm happy to announce that the forums have been upgraded, which sees a number of significant new features, both under the hood and for the you, the end-user, as well as bug fixes and performance improvements. Read on for details.
On August 25, 2013, the 14th season of VFR had two bay area cup events occurring simultaneously. In the west of Japan, the Kansai Bay Area Cup comes to a dramatic end with their 10th 3on3 event leading to the Climax Series. The Climax Series determines the overall champion of the Kansai Bay Area Cup. In the east of Japan, the 2013 Tokyo Bay Area Cup had its 7th event for the year.
