    Back again for the 3rd year in a row! Virtua Fighter @ Final Round 18!

    This year will bring some changes for VF@FR. This year's tourney will be very simple and straight to the point.


    -$5 Entry Fee. Entry Fee will go straight to me (as cost recoup), and will NOT be added to the prize pot!

    -System: PS3!

    -$200 Guaranteed Prize Pot
    -1st place: $150, 2nd place: $45, 3rd place: $5
    -No trophy this year!

    -Tourney will begin FRIDAY NIGHT (March 20th) at 7pm EST!

    -Double Elimination

    -Once again, the tourney will be a SIDE tournament, rather than a main tournament. This means that you can enter this tournament even if you only have a spectator's badge.


    Also, a note about the stream. I want to apologize for the non existant streams of the last few tournaments. My intention was to stream using Sprint 4g service in ATL, but apparently Sprint 4g is totally worthless (IIRC, my upload speeds were something like 1 mbps and was about 10% of the bandwith necessary for a stream). This benefited absolutely nobody and in the end, that meant no stream for those eager to watch and hundreds of wasted dollars and bricked equipment for me. This year I am going to try another carrier (Verizon), unless someone has a better suggestion (which I would definitely love to hear!).

    That being said, the stream will be on http://www.twitch.tv/BLACKSTAR_GA
    Match recordings will once again be at http://www.youtube.com/theBLACKSTARmovement

    Thank you all for your continued support.

There's 6 months until FINAL ROUND XVIII and the event will be here before you know it. Of course I personally would like to thank everyone in the FGC and the sponsors that have supported FINAL ROUND throughout the years because without you guys there wouldn't be any FINAL ROUND or scene!

    If you don't want to be in that long registration line on Friday please preregister online as soon as you can to make sure you're entered into the game you wish to compete in at FR18. We at FINAL ROUND LLC understand that sometime you don't have the entire amount ready to pay for badges and your games at the same time, so with said you can pay for your badges right now and add the games you wish to play later at a later date before online registration closes.

    All team/Community ran events will be must held on Friday March 20 as this is the only day we have available to run them in a timely manner. All team/exhibitions/community events must get approved by ME to be ran at FR18 period! Any "Community event" will be ran by the communities that requested their game to be played at FR18. Remember that Community event doesn't mean it won't happen. If I allow it at FR then it's a tournament regardless of the label. Hence the name EVENT in the title. We would just need some help with the systems/games and you will have an area to play and run the tournament. All community events registration will be at the door only.

    Team/exhibitions/community events that are confirmed as of now are as followed:

    Of course we are going to bring back the popular series "CURLEY MUSTACHE BATTLE ROYALE" 5v5 team Regional tournament. The hype of FR + CM is too powerful and I know there will be more regions/teams allowed this year! More details coming soon for this instant classic!

    Project M
    VF5US
    BB
    P4U2
    MvC2
    ST - in the arcade room
    3S - in the arcade room

    We will have a BYOC room for people to play casuals during the event that spectators can play also. We will also have a FINAL ROUND Arcade thanks to Tony Majors. The same guy who brought the arcade to TFC is packing up his gear and driving to the ATL so everyone can enjoy the acrade scene! Here's a small list of games that will be at FR18:

    Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo - on h2h Japanese cabinets
    Street Fighter 3: 3rd strike - on h2h Japanese cabinets
    Street Fighter Alpha 2 - on head 2 head japanese cab with Sanwa parts
    Capcom VS SNK 2 - Japanese cab
    Marvel VS Capcom 2 - Japanese cab
    Samurai Showdow 2 - American stand up cab Japanese parts
    Double Dragon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and many more.

    As always I really don't want people to forget the origins of the FGC, so having some type of link to the past is important to me and the arcade is where this community came from. Spectators can play casuals in the arcade.

    We will have multiple streams for FR18 for those that can not attend FR18 to get a small taste of the event. We are glad to have the following streamers for FR18:

    Stream #1= Team Spooky - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
    Stream #2= FunkyP - http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp
    Anime = http://www.twitch.tv/sixfortyfive
    Injustice = Kombatnetwork - http://www.twitch.tv/kombatnetwork
    Smash stream to be announced!

    We will have more updates as the months pass by so keep your eyes open for the goodies in future post! Man how times flies when you're having fun! I can't wait to see everyone and again and hopefully meet some new players in the FGC at FR18. It's on now shawty! See you guys in march."

    We'll see. I'm gonna try a new approach, which means signing up for a Verizon contract that I will probably use at most once a year, if not outright cancel the contract afterward for an extremely inflated price

    I'd like to know that too!

    But yeah, tbh, I'm sure the only reason he showed up last year was because it was the first stop of the Capcom Cup. And their just so happened to be a VF tournament that was essentially free money for him.

    That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up for the third time in a row for that reason, tho the prize munney is less this year.

    But yeah, @MarlyJay , you have any insider info?

    Nope. He does enjoy VF though so if he's there and knows VF is there i imagine he'd enter.
