Our event is more about growing the tournament community than prizes, that being said you can expect a few things:

1st Place: Full color metal sublimated images mounted on wood plaques, Last Years Plaques

1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Metals (wearable around your neck)

Your name on our website for all eternity! Past Tournament Winners

Recognition on stage in front of 400 fellow hard core gamers! We put a ton of time into producing the best awards ceremony we can. 45 second videos of each game, all teams/winners names shown on the projector while you are escorted across stage!

These are the reasons we want people to come, if all you are into is prizes well we have those too, but we don’t advertise it because we truly want gamers to come out and show what they have for the fun of it! I know this part will put off a lot of amazing players on this site but I am just trying to be honest and up front with you all!

Woooo, I’ll be there as usual. Can you guys see if you can maybe get some more sponsors this year? The fighting games are definitely getting the short end of the stick when it comes to that, although I know it’s no one’s fault really. Would be awesome if Capcom could send some prizes.

Hopefully I can get another plaque for my wall this year :lol:

Thanks! Return attendees are my favorite kind :wink: Means we didn’t screw up too bad last year lol. We are working hard on sponsors per usual. We have a prize for every winner 1st, 2nd, and 3rd as of right now (thats 75 people!) but we are working to lock in more prizes every day! If you have a contact at Capcom please let me know, the email address I have for Seth just bounced last time I sent an email out. He gave it to me at Wondercon 2 years ago though so it may have changed.

I really hope to see you guys out there and hope the ones that do show up have a great time…

For all the 2d Fighter Fans here are our Rules this year

are there any combo limitations for blaze blue? like say a 5 hit max combo. im kind of new to the game and wouldnt want to enter to get beaten pretty badly. if there is some kind of equalizer for new players i will attend.

Sorry for the late reply, I have not had time to talk to the tournament director about this but I see our event as a great way for players of all skill levels to have a good time. We don’t give cash prizes so it brings a completely different atmosphere to the event. Come hopefully you will enjoy yourself in this event if not it doesn’t cost anything more to register for another tournament or two :slight_smile:

Just wanted to update you all on the arcades we will have at the event:

Neo Geo - 150-in-1

Classic Games - 48-in-1

Marvel vs Capcom Dedicated Cabinet

X-men vs Street Fighter Dedicated


Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting (note this is an HF board, but I have it in the Champion Edition cabinet my dad and I built, so the header is CE even though the board is HF)

Guantlet Legends

Crisis Zone Dedicated

NASCAR Arcade (single player sitdown version)

Everything is on freeplay of course! Sorry I didn’t bring my Tekken 3 cabinet out this year. :slight_smile:
