Arcade Legends in Fairfield, OH is proud to announce SEASON 2 of the Ranking Battles. Come prove yourself amongst players in the local scene and spend some quality time with our 50+ arcade and pinball machines all set on free play.
Season 2 will be slightly different than season 1. First, the season will last 4 months. Second, there will only be 2 weeks of ranbats per month. Third, the prize values have been raised to reflect the extra week. Since there isn’t really anything obvious to go along with Tekken 6, it will be played on the same day as BB and GGAC but in the evening. I know a few T6 players are into BB so they can come early and enter that if they wish.
The evenings with T6 will be open for whomever wants to run a side tourney alongside T6. PM me or post it up and we’ll hammer out the details.
Each night after the SFIV and Marvel ranbats, we will have another Street Fighter related tourney or two. I’ll post those in the first post below.

There are 4 tournaments held for each game over the course of 4 months. First place in each tournament receives 9 points, second place 8 points, and so on until eighth place, which receives 2 points. Players who place lower than eighth receive one point. There will be posts online which will show current point standings.
At the end of the 4 month season the player with the highest number of points amassed from the 4 tournaments is the season champion for that game.
4 month season, 4 tournaments per game. Each game has one tournament per month.
Thursday Night Sessions:
If you haven’t been yet or haven’t heard, AL hosts a regular Thursday night get together with most of the Cincy, Dayton and NKY crews. Admission is only $4! We can have almost any fighting game setup you desire. they are usually rocking some SFIV, T6, BB, 3s and some lesser played gems like HNK, TvC or Jackie Chan: Fists of Fire. We also have some fierce CvS2 & Alpha 3 competition and even some Samurai Showdown (3,4,5). We do need some of you to bring systems and games. We have some but usually need a few more to cater to everyone. No TVs needed. We have plenty. And we have Judge Dredd pinball. I’m just sayin
