    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.)

      BUT PRIME!

      I'm bad at marketing, so no trailers. FUCK! You did an incredible job with NMTC.

      The stream will be handled by Dropkick Events, so it will be crispy AF.

      Is there a stream channel and starting times confirmed yet? I'd like to tune in if it's not too early in the morning in Australia.

      Sup VFDC ~ Only few days away!

      I will arrive at L.A. on Friday noon and straight to the hotel. It seems like check-in is @3pm and hopefully it can allow me to do it even earlier. Anyway, looking forward to see everybody there, peace~

      There's a good chance we'll end up either streaming on DropkickEvents or KilgoreTheFish on Twitch.

      I just went ahead and registered for the weekend. I'm not staying at the hotel, so is there a place that everyone's meeting at on Thursday?

      To create an environment of fairness and ensure that everyone gets a chance to play with HSA. Please use the link below, which will take you to a sign up form created for LAG.

      https://goo.gl/forms/ObupOycGZlDzwKAf2

      If you have any issues viewing the form then please let me know.

      @Myke Is it possible to embed this form so that it can be added to the main post? I tried embedding it this post, but couldn't do so.

      Thanks!!!

      * EDIT *

      Signing up to this form does not determine the order names will be called. The list is just going to be a point of reference to make sure everyone attending, who is interested in playing with HSA, gets the opportunity to do so.

      I really like the reminder to pack vaseilne at the end. It really nurtures encouragement! Lol

      ** UPDATE **

      Sign up is for 5 games period, so all requests for " 1 more... 1 more... " game, etc will be ignored. Play your set and then step to ensure everyone gets some games. Once we run through the list and everyone gets at least 1 set then it's open season on HSA.

      In closing, if you do not sign up or make any attempt to verbally mention at the event that you'd like to play with HSA and it doesn't happen, please do not come back to this thread or forum and bitch up a storm.

      A closed mouth will never get fed so even if you don't sign up at the very least... SPEAK UP!

      There's a good chance that Montage and I will have our hotel room open for casuals on Thursday. Best way to reach me instantly is Discord, I'm KilgoreTheFish#0001 on there.
