    Hi everyone, apologies this has taken so long to post.

    We're finally ready to announce VF Global Showdown, an international tournament taking place during Q4 2022.
    The tournament will feature a top 8 from EU, NA and Japan. I'm going to be organising the qualifiers for EU, @Harpooneer will be organising them for NA and @Tetsuko_Yamada will be organising for Japan.


    This post will have all the rules for qualifying alongside clarifying any questions people have about the event.
    The event itself will be crowfunded through Matcherino, as such I'll update this post to include the Matcherino's when they're ready. Those who qualify will be going to an offline final which will take place in Scotland at the end of 2022.

    We will try and raise enough money to cover flights for all players, however as we can't guarentee that please be aware that those who qualify may need to pay a portion of their flights.

    First off we have the qualifiers:


    4 Qualifiers (quarterly)
    Top 8 from each qualifier are assigned points
    Top 8 players with highest points qualify for the international
    Will be run on xbox
    Funds will be raised through matcherino
    Funds will be equally split between top 8 to cover flights
    Any additional money raised will go to other regions


    4 Qualifiers with a “last chance qualifier” at the end (5 events total)
    Qualifiers will be run on East Coast and West Coast (see map for split). Counting both sides, there will be 8 qualifiers before the last chance.
    Top 8 from each qualifier are assigned points
    Top 3 from each region qualify for the international
    Players in position 4-8 in each region will be able to play in the last chance qualifier. This event will take place over two days and will be two round robin tournaments including all players from both regions. One day will be hosted on an East Coast favored server, one day on a West Coast favored server. The 2 highest scoring players will get the last two spots in the international.
    Will be run on Parsec with servers in VA, OH, Norcal, and Texas.
    Fundraising will be done through matcherino, and money will be raised to cover flights. Qualifiers will be responsible for their own paperwork (visa, passport, etc.)
    If enough money is raised to cover all flights, additional funds will be used for event support (covering other regions flights, supporting lodgings/food/etc)

    The first qualifiers for NA and EU will be taking place during Quarter 3 of 2021.

    This post will be updated as and when new information is released regarding the event. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me or Harpooneer.

    We have a discord specifically for this event if people would prefer to contact through there: https://discord.gg/xyeqhR7ww4
