Heard from many contacts in Hong Kong that Sony of Hong Kong has held their first EVER VF tournament there! The prize up for grabs is $5000 HK (roughly $1000 Cdn), plus a PS2. $3000 for second place, and $2000 for third place. You get a VF4 poster just for signing up, and signup is free. Apparently there are 4 total entry tourneys to weed out all the potential wannabes, with 8 finalists on each weekend... because there were a LOT of people: <font color=orange>65</font color=orange> people at the first tourney alone (this weekend)! Only 3 Vanessas participated out of all of them though. /versus/images/icons/frown.gif This makes a total of 32 people that make the "final" tournament. The final 8 from this weekend include a Lei Fei, Akira, Jacky and Shun. Since the tourney was played on PS2's, there is a possibility of matches being recorded on memory cards. If I get my hand on these, I'll let VFDC know and put up a link. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif Also, I heartily welcome any participants of the tourney in Hong Kong to post here their impressions of the gameplay and tourney atmosphere!
