    I'm so in. Only way I'll miss it is if I gotta work that night, but I'll try to request the night off.

    edit - Alright, 4 players! I got a chance at top 3.

    Thanks for hosting @Blitzball Champ. I very much appreciate your efforts in keeping the US VF community alive. Keep up the good work and hopefully we'll see it thrive again in the near future.

    Shout-out to everyone who participated. I hope that everyone had as much fun as I did, I was more than happy to be everyone's punching bag (y):ninja:

    Specific shout-outs to...

    @Rodnutz and @adamYUKI - My NYCVF senpais. Thanks for participating, I was very much looking forward to playing the both of you again, however brief it was. It's always a learning experience and I specifically enjoy the challenge of trying to break your still very solid defenses.

    @Jacko - I don't think I've played you before, but your Jeffrey is beastly and very fun to play against. I got into a good rhythm early on and almost pulled the upset, but eventually the better player prevailed. Looking forward to playing you more in the future.

    @Tricky - Every time I think that I've figured out your tricks, you show me new ones. Always fun and a challenge to play you. Congrats on getting 1st place.

    So good to play with you again Monty. Keep leveling up! You hesitate a little / think too much at the moment - but it's understandable because you haven't played in ages. We'll get you up to speed shortly.

    I'll echo Monty's sentiments above: Blitzball, thank you for everything. You and the NY Crew are doing a lot to keep our tiny scene alive. I'm really grateful.

    It was great playing everyone. EVERYONE has gotten better from the last time I played (over a year ago at NMTC). Let's keep improving. I don't want to hold out for VF6. As long as we're all leveling up and life circumstances permit, I'll continue to play. I hope some of the other dudes come back and play.

    There is still so much to learn in this game. It seems so easy (and some would even say scrubby relative to previous VFs) on the surface, but it does have a steep learning curve if we care to play at a higher level. In this regard, it is in line with the previous games in the series.

    Great games to everyone. A bit of some friendly advice for future events:

    If you have 8 or less participants, then I could see a Round Robin working more efficiently. With the amount of participants, even excluding ones that no-showed/left early, we should have ran a double elimination tournament. Would have progressed a bit faster and been easier to run, especially for online.

    In the event that you do want to do future Round Robins, which can be fun I admit, and it surpasses 8 participants, it should be one match only instead of 2/3. That also helps to speed things along and run things more smoothly.

    All in all, congrats to the top 3 and keep up the good work in keeping this game relevant for players who can’t find a new home with current fighters.

    As for my own performance, which I noted that some people felt like “I wasn’t playing like myself”, this is literally my first time back to an online surface for this game since before NMTC, which was well over a year ago lol. Couple that with being off for almost a year offline since NYG last year. No excuses cause I won as well as lost, but even I have to admit I wasn’t quite comfortable. I’ll get my bearings and do better next time :)

    I enjoyed hosting this! Thank you for playing! I don't get to see too much Kage, so it was good that you provided that!
