Introduction About the VF Circuit The best experience one can get from playing Virtua Fighter and fighting games in general is face-to-face competition. Due to the general lack of regular public gathering places to play fighting games, however, competition for many people can only be conveniently found through online play. To better serve the VF community, VFDC is running a series of region-specific, regular occurring free online events – collectively called the VF Circuit. Why should you participate in the VF Circuit? This would be an organized opportunity to meet players within a similar region to play and compete against each other. Specifically for players new to Virtua Fighter, the VF Circuit will provide an organized way to meet the VF community. These players can be a new player like you or a veteran player. Competing against players of a similar level is the best way to learn and enjoy the game. In addition, you can learn the ins and outs of VF gameplay by either watching veteran player matches or by talking to them while waiting for your turn in the event. Specifically for veteran Virtua Fighter players, the VF Circuit is VFDC’s attempt to promote and support the VF community around the world. It is an opportunity to introduce new players to VF and show them the positive traits of the Virtua Fighter series and our community. Ultimately, I hope these events promote the growth of the VF community, develop friendly rivalries between players and regions, and also encourage new and old players to participate and organize offline gatherings within their regions.
