    2018 promises to be a good year for VF due to the inclusion of FS in Yakuza 6, and the NYC / East Coast scene in particular with the return of Hayato’s arcade looking stronger than ever. Thanks to the efforts of the old-school arcade community at iFixMachine, VF will have a strong arcade representation at this year’s NYG. This includes a genuine arcade cabinet with Sega’s Lindbergh running VF5R and FS, along with head-to-head Versus City cabinets running VF4 Evo and Final Tuned, and potentially VF3 if the interest is high! The resources available to us at this year’s event are better than ever. This means we can offer a more exciting and fun environment for casual hanging out and playing, and we can also step up this year’s tournament to provide a competitive environment.

    Keep checking this post as time goes on, we will be updating with more details over the coming days.

    Event Schedules:
    Friday, August 24 - Hanging out, casuals, side tournaments (games to be announced).
    Saturday, August 25 - Final Showdown Tournament, Double Elimination
    Sunday, August 26 - Hanging out, Runbacks and Revenge Exhibitions

    The Venue:
    iFixMachine is reborn as a true arcade, with cabinets for head-to-head, single-player, and vertical scrolling shoot-em-ups. There is also plenty of love for console games. $10 per day gets you all the gaming action you want.

    The Tournament:
    The tournament will take place on Saturday, August 11. The game will be Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, and detailed rules can be found below. We will be offering prizes, and there will also be a pot bonus for the event. Additional information about prizes and scheduling will be coming soon.

    Brackets and Calling Matches:

    If you are registered for the tournament, you will be placed on a challonge bracket which will be posted before the tournament begins. Our first priority in seeding will be that people from the same region don’t play each other in round 1, but that may not be possible in all cases.

    If you are called and are unavailable for your match, we will attempt to resolve other matches in the same round before disqualifying you. If 2 matches occur before you are available, you will be disqualified. If you want to leave the venue for food or other reasons, please consult an organizer to see if there will be enough time. It is your responsibility to be there for your match.

    Rules for Matches, Character Select, P1/P2, Stage Select:

    Normal Bracket: 2 / 3. Losers, winners, and grand finals are all 3 / 5.

    The Tournament is Double Elimination

    If two players cannot agree on player 1 / player 2 side, they will flip a coin for it.

    After sitting down and going to character select, both players must configure buttons before picking a character. The first stage selection will be random.

    After each game in singles, winner should ask loser if they want to change stage or character (NOT both).

    Pausing during a match is a 1 round loss. If either player is Shun Di, the loss will be drink neutral (i.e. Shun will neither gain, nor lose, drink points). The player that did not pause can choose not to take the round.

    If there is a malfunction of equipment, a break in the game can occur where the player finds a replacement. If the break occurs, or causes the game to pause, a round can be taken by the other player. These rules also apply to button checks.

    Reporting Rules Being Broken:

    If the match you are playing is not being streamed, rule violations should be reported to organizers by the players in a match. If a winner changes character / stage, do not begin the game and stop part way to report, report the violation before starting the game (you may pause to do this). If someone in your match pauses, winner can choose to take the round without direct response from an organizer.

    Thank you to the artist, @RaiT092, for this event's art, and thank you to @oneida for commissioning it.

    Awesome stuff! When I get home I'll share everywhere I can!

    If I can humbly make a suggestion, I feel VF works much better as FT3 the whole tournament, considering its such a fast paced game I think it makes for a better tournament Any consideration to do that this time around?

    We can consider it. In the past our "Stream everything" mentality along with the number of entrants and double elim has made 3 out of 5 pretty rough to schedule for. If this year works out better with pre-registrations and scheduling concerns we can maybe do it. If something like that were to change, I'd make sure we did it well in advance of the actual tournament, though, so stay tuned on that.

    I'm definitely going this year. I just finished booking my hotel room and train tickets.

    @Tricky , last year you challenged me to a grudge match. At the time I accepted but then I ended up not attending NYG for various reasons. I'm still wiling to give you that match if you wish.

    PS. @Harpooneer Will the FS tournament be played on X-Box 360?

    I want that Blaze ass yes. Also it will be on 360. You should come to a monthly and we can get it in before NYG too.

    Yeah, we're going to be running XBOX still, that seems to be what most people have. I'm still working on planning but we should have a time for exhibitions where you guys can duke it out.

    @Harpooneer @VFhayato think you'll be able to put up a registration link soon? Now that Evo hit cap and CEO is done, I think we should start pushing NYG!
