    Hi guys, I'd like to introduce LAG: HOMESTAY | FINAL SHOWDOWN @ REDONDO BEACH

    It was so inspiring getting slaughtered by Homestay during Evo 2018, that I invited him to come play and hang with us. He will come with his wife and they both will do a little sightseeing, but he is looking forward to playing Final Showdown with us.

    It would be nice to have a sister event to NYG here on the west coast, where we invite Japanese players, get to know them a bit, and level up our game. (We used to do this with early NYGs during the VF4 era.)

      @adamYUKI, I applaud you! You have been, are, and will forever will be the pillar of NAVFC. I would like to donate to L.A.G. to the ticket for @Stl_Tim to attend L.A.G., and mend the wounds that divided us for so long. Let us put away the smelly shoes, and kiddo tables and unite!

      @Shang, if you are willing to keep the NAVFC dream alive, I will as well. @Chief_Flash, this message is to you. I will be attending L.A.G. This is your one and only chance to redeem yourself from the embarrassment you called a match during Evo18. Come and face me, and I'll show you who is the true NA Champ.

      VFDC Unite!

      @adamYUKI I will work on a smash.gg page for event registration, should be able to have it up by end of the weekend. Please provide a list of events we are doing so far, and which days/times we expect them to occur. I'll pull info from this thread, but please provide any additional you can.

      I will take the ticket if he does not. I have not been to LA before so this would be the time. But I would need that plane ticket since I am all the way in CT. It will help with the costs. Also if I win something there then you can have it. It's not about the prizes for me. Just want to come out support the community, hang out with peeps that I have met over the years and meet some new ones as well. This is Virtua Fighter!

      Since @Shang offered Salty Tim the Plane ticket, I'll offered to cover his hotel fee.

      @Stl_Tim I think you really need to take this offer. You’ve got time in advance to plan for it and Shang and Smurf will no doubt follow up on their word. Plus, it’d be nice for you go play some offline VF.

      Let’s put behind us all the online beef and beratement and blah blah blah and seriously just come together to play this game.

      Still figuring out logistics as I'm researching airplane ticket prices among some other stuff.

      What if I wanted to arrive in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Jan. 16) and leave the day after the event ends (Sunday, Jan. 20)? Would this be okay?

      I only have a stick that is compatible for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Will there be setups for the 360 version of VF5FS at LAG?

      Of course the request is denied. Because you know that I would actually show up and that is why I don't play at the kiddie table and I don't smell anyone's shoes. That is why you know exactly who I am and if you don't then you are just lying to yourself. Lol. Carry on.

      @adamYUKI For the team tournament Friday, how many players do we want per team? Others please chime in as well :)

      Also, I'll need to know the registration cost per event to finish setting up the smash.gg page.

      Hi Kruza! Looking forward to seeing you again, fellow old school VF'er. Yes, Homestay is coming on the 16th - staying at the same hotel. I will take him and his wife around for a little sightseeing, so please feel free to come along. :) Or, you can just relax and play VF at the hotel with others who arrive on the 16th.

      I imagine there will be 360 setups as well, so please bring your weapon of choice.

      Thanks so much for your help with this bro. I think 3-person teams are best, no? I'm open to suggestions. As for events, this is what I'm thinking:

      Thursday:
      Beach picnic & chill (for those interested) - 1pm
      Casuals in hotel rooms

      Friday:
      Beach picnic & chill (for those interested) - 11 - 2pm
      Team tourney - 3pm
      Group dinner / lounge (for those interested) - 7pm
      Casuals in meeting space until 12am

      Saturday:
      Singles tourney - 11am
      Casuals in meeting space until 12am

      If people are interested in beach hangouts, please let me know, as I can get a cool tent setup for us so that we can eat, drink, and frolic in the sand. o_O

      I'm still thinking about the registration cost. Will get back to you asap!

      With regards to a smash.gg event page, I'd like to send you a promotional image for the event. Can you please provide me your email address?
