    UPDATE #5: We have a volunteer streamer for VF5FS EVO 2018. https://www.twitch.tv/escapingworkforce

    UPDATE #4:
    Switched it back to 360 from reading everyone's responses here. Plus, I have plenty of 360s around at my house from my SEGA fan event in Georgia.

    UPDATE #3:

    Right now I'm making a document to keep track on who's volunteering for this VF5FS tournament and is guaranteed to show up at EVO. We're going to need people who can

    - Help with the double elimination brackets
    - Test and Run the stream
    - Commentary

    If anyone has any experience with these following things. Feel free to send me a DM here or Tweet me @KoriMaru. Then from there, I can provide the information on how setups is going to be like at EVO.

    Also if we don't happen to have enough people who can provide PS3s by the end of this week, I'll switch it back to 360.


    UPDATE #2:

    Hey guys it's finally Tuesday and judging from the poll, looks like we're using the PS3 consoles of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown for EVO.

    Now if anyone is attending EVO 2018 and has some spare 360 to PS3 converters for Xbox players, send me a DM here or message me on Twitter @KoriMaru.

      Lotsa different matchups from the weekend. Its gonna take me awhile to edit them since alot of the sound was desync'd from my laptop going overtime. Here's a bit of offscreen footage I took with my phone. The rest will be raw footage and should be up by this weekend.



      ps: this is their first time playing against each other

      This was a great tournament and awesome meeting more of the VF community. Tons of casuals after were great too, with @adamYUKI, Shoutime, Gentleman Thief and Homestay Akira!

      Thanks for making it happen guys. Hope to see you next year.

      Just saw the top 4 so far. Homestay is such a good player, cheezus. Dude is straight up on a whole other level. VF in Japan is in general, and this guy emerges as one of the top players in that lion pit.

      That combo he did to Adam against the wall was sick.

      Must've been a treat to play against such a player. It got me hella motivated (though I'm most likely not gonna practice anything, lmao), and I only watched a video of yall playing him. Catching him after he done mopped everyone up in casuals for a long time and being on 'whatever' mode would be the only hope, lol.

      I need to at least step my combo game up, though. After all this time, I still don't know max damage combos with Akira. Dude was taking advantage of just about all of his combo opportunities, and with stuff I didn't even know was possible. And that ring awareness when he knew there was a high or sure chance of them going into the wall after a few hits after a certain combo sequence. Some dope stuff.

      Here's the playlist for most of his shit, only thing missing is Akira's specific spacing off wall hit combos. Best of efforts.
