    I think it is safe to say that outside of Japan, many players have had trouble finding matches quickly or have trouble finding people that you have a good connection with. Here, we are trying to make it easier for fellow VF players to network and play online.

    So far those participating are from North and South America. However, this thread is not limited to just the western hemisphere. If you regularly host rooms and have the common goal to play VF and spread the joy (and sometimes pain) of VF, please consider posting your info in this thread please!

      Edit: Below was the text in the original post
      Would it be helpful and useful for the VF community to have a thread listing known times for meeting up with others to play online VF? Currently, it seems the community is divided from VFDC, discords, twitter, etc. My hope is to make it a bit easier for people to get together to play and let others not normally involved, get involved.

      I know others have been doing regular gaming sessions, but trying to help make it easier to spread the word and have more consistent schedules.

      Will update this later with more information.


      Edit: Below is the beginning of the original 2nd post -
      To what I would like this thread/topic to be. I'm unsure if there is enough interest or that there are better ways to get people who likes VF to get together and play. The plan is to update the original post for every VFer who regularly host room for regular gaming sessions.

      What I would like is for those that would like to be included in the list to fill out some basic info:
      1. Region:
      2. Time:
      3. Type of Session:
      4. Players/Restrictions:
      5. Stream/Contact: if you plan to stream or how people wanting to join room can contact you.

      I know Vfnumbers, Haya, @Blitzball Champ (Thursday Arena), and @Chanchai regularly make rooms.

      @Harpooneer @Vencabot @Virtua Kazama @FightClubHuBBs are doing biweekly online tournaments... @Chief_Flash has been doing weekly Friday Flash Cups, not sure if you guys do weekly room gaming sessions?

      ===

      As for this past Sunday, thanks to those that came to play and try casual league and team matches on Sunday:

      League had a little hiccup, but overall I think it went well. Except for special occasions, I will try to continue this every Sunday, early afternoon. If there are enough people wanting to participate we can also try to set multiples room based on skill level/region/etc. But for now a single room...

      Taking a break from "serious" play this month,
      But will still hop online for room matches.

      1. Region: North America (music city)
      2. Time: USA- Central Time (Wednesday 5:00pm~8:00pm)
      3. Type of Session: Room Match (5-slots with spectators and no password)
      4. Players: Anyone level 21 or lower (will kick or leave if too strong)
      5. Restrictions: High speed hardwired internet (need at least CAT7 or CAT8 cable connections)
      6. Contact: Message me here or on PSN (will block and report strong language)

      I am a very weak player, and have shifted to a more casual level of play.
      So if I feel that the gap of skill is too wide for me to enjoy the session...
      Will often leave to create or join a different room.
      Personally burnt out from ranked matches and only interested in casual room sessions.

      I updated the first post to what I think would be the easiest for people to view: a Weekly Schedule and Host's Information.

      I am in game regularly on Sunday, but I have been slowly adding people I played that I have a good connection to into a PSN group chat "VF Midwest Good Connection" group. It seems midwest can get good connection to both coasts. If you are in the midwest and would like to be added into the group - you can message me here, twitter, or on PSN.

      8 show up last weekend. Thanks for participating!

      The first time I made the room, I accidentally set connection restriction to 4, and at least one person could not find/search the room, even though the connection I have with that person is 4 bars. Not sure what that was about.

      This upcoming Sunday, 1 PM central. I think I am going to set room for single elimination simultaneous play. Afterwards, I will remake room for simultaneous league play.

      Single elimination was ok, but for a larger room, league play still seems the best option!

      Each week, I've been trying different things to see what works well in additional to regular league play for North America.

      Next week, regular league play as usual. But I also would like to try team format events/league. Seeing how the Japanese scene does a variety of team events it seems to be a great way to get people of different levels involved. So lets try out different formats for team events! Maybe we will find something that works well for North America and run a year long team team league next year.


      So some formats to try out -
      - 3on3 Team Battle using Sega's Team Match Mode format. - Will try this out this upcoming Sunday. Need at least 2 teams of 3 members! People showing up on the day and time is welcome. Positive: Just use the mode already available within the game.

      - 3on3 Team Battle using VFR style (Beat-Tribe) format. Play order determined after each match, with challenger allowed to choose stage. Positive: A format that have been played decades, can't go wrong with the format!

      - Waseda Style format Team Battle - positive: all players on a team will get to play at least a match!

      - Team events in which there is a "team max cap" - For example the sum of the three player levels on a team can't be greater than 100. positive: makes team matches a bit more equal.

      Some notes on hosting room - the connection bar restriction setting prevents some users from seeing the room in the lobby (even though they have better connection than what was supposed to be restricted.)

      When the league is running, it appears to disappear from the lobby and is not searchable. So having the spectator option on is pointless as a way to let users join room and wait for league to end.
