Just so everyone knows... there will be a VF tournament (probably TB, but who knows hehe) in Poland this summer - meaning July/August. Exact date to be announced later. It's going to be advertised in major polish gaming magazines, so don't worry about attendance. This will be more of national than international thing, but I'm posting this in case someone's interested. Everyone's invited by the way. One important thing - since I got a sponsor, THE WILL BE PRIZES (as opposed to gatherings). I don't know what prizes exactly, but probably something around PS2/DC/other consoles, PCs, maybe TV or DVD player (and movies, games, or whatever) - probably a cash equivalent to foreign players (to avoid customs costs). It all depends on how many people attend. Again, further details will be posted later. Tournament format - group fights, seed, then single elimination. Best of 5, 30 seconds per round. Select your character before the tournament starts. Players would be allowed to use a controller of their choice (not programmable ones though). I'm also planning a gathering to follow the main tournament. While it's possible that prizes attract many non-hardcore VFers for the tourney, the gathering is meant for that handful of VF fanatics. Poland is rather cheap for western countries' standards - it's not expensive to stay in a hotel here (or a youth hostel). That's it for now... I'm open to any ideas concerning this topic. Either post here, or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll keep you folks informed if anything more occurs.
