All team/Community ran events will be must held on Friday March 18 as this is the only day we have available to run them in a timely manner. All team/exhibitions/community events must get approved by ME to be ran at FR19 period! Any “Community event” will be ran by the communities that requested their game to be played at FR19. Remember that Community event doesn’t mean it won’t happen. If I allow it at FR then it’s a tournament regardless of the label. Hence the name EVENT in the title. We would just need some help with the systems/games and you will have an area to play and run the tournament. All community events registration will be at the door only.

Team/exhibitions/community events that are confirmed as of now are as followed:

SFV teams 3v3
MKX teams 3v3
UMVC3 teams 3v3
GGXrd teams 3v3
TTT2 teams 3v3
Smash 4 Doubles
Melee doubles
KOF13
BB
Melty
P4U2

We will have a BYOC room for people to play casuals during the event that spectators can play also. If you’ve been to FR you know we always have an arcade for everyone to enjoy as it helps remind our younger generation where this scene came from! With that being said we want to bring back the old school arcade tournament at FR19. Just like the old school arcade scene you will have to register for your game at the event, but you can take advantage of the early bird online pay for your badges.

BAS has registered for FR19 and he wants to run a CVS2 community event at FR19. I told him that’s a cool idea, but it would have to be on friday since I DO NOT WANT CVS2 matches to delay any SFV or Umvc3 singles pools on Saturday! I wanted to expand that idea to other favorites in the arcade back in the day. I know everyone runs side arcade events, but do THEY STREAM those arcade events? NOPE, but at FR19 we will stream them thanks to Arturo Sanchez aka nycfurby! You can view the old school goodness on his stream page at

Here’s the line up:

Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo - on h2h Japanese cabinets (Sat)
Street Fighter 3: 3rd strike - on h2h Japanese cabinets (Sat)
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - on h2h japanese cabinets (Fri)
Capcom VS SNK 2 - Japanese cab (Fri)
UMK3- Shock usually brings his supergun/emulator so he would be streaming that game. (Sun)

Please contact me if you have a cvs2, 3s, A2, ST board as we would need at least 3-4 to make sure things runs smoothly.

I really don’t want people to forget the origins of the FGC, so having some type of link to the past is important to me and the arcade is where this community came from. Spectators can play casuals in the arcade but not during tournament time .

We will have multiple streams for FR19 for those that can not attend the event to get a small taste of the event. We are glad to have the following streamers for FR19:

Stream #1= Team Spooky - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
FunkyP - http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp
Kombatnetwork - http://www.twitch.tv/kombatnetwork
SmashStudios - http://www.twitch.tv/smashstudios
Arcade room and Salty Auditorium = twitch.tv/nycfurby

During the day we will have an anime movie room in the Salty auditorium during the day playing movies all day until the salty auditorium opens for late night game action! I don’t think anyone has had a movie room at their FGC event, so please don’t bite my swag guys! We will have a map of the event area coming out soon so you can know where everything is at during this action pack weekend!

This is just the tip of the iceberg as we will have more updates as the months pass by so keep your eyes open for the goodies in future post! For those that was wondering about the cos-play contest we are working on the details to make the cosplay event better than last year. Man how times flies when you’re having fun! I can’t wait to see everyone and again and hopefully meet some new players in the FGC at FR19. It’s on now shawty! See you guys in march.

Ok I have good news and bad news. The bad news is unfortunately no more available rooms will be released to our group rate/discount at the Hilton. I was trying to get more for you guys, but I’ve already gone well over my allotment with two months before the event. With that being said that’s not going to stop me trying to get you guys a good place to stay at the same rate. So I called the Crown Plaza right down the street and they would be HAPPY to house our overflow. SOOOOO here’s the deal.

The CP has released 20 rooms at $95 per night (Double beds and singles) and if those sell out they will be happy to add more is what they told me directly! They offer shuttle service throughout the whole weekend! The hotel is on the other side of spondivits for those that have been to FR before. Here’s the address and number so you guys can book right now!!!

Crowne Plaza Atlanta Airport

1325 Virginia Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30344

For individuals to make reservations, please direct them to 1/866-750-3365 to secure their reservations prior to March 3, 2016

To confirm the room rate is $95.00 plus applicable taxes

The rooms are normally $127 per night so grab them while you can!

Please let me know if these rooms are sold out and I will contact them again to get more rooms added to the block. Lets show them the power of the FGC and sell two hotels out for FR19 weekend! #FGCcannotbeheldback

Rooms are sold out at the Crowne Plaza, anyway to get a few more rooms Larry?

Good Morning, I slacked and didn’t register online. I hadn’t plan on how to get there. I have a ride and room now, a bit afraid of going there and not being able to register. Will be riding out Thursday night. Should I go worry free if I’m there Friday Morning? Obviously have no problem paying more for my slacker ways :slight_smile: Trying to Enter Melee, Smash 4, and SFV. If I can I would like to enter USFIV as well.

Update: Just read on Facebook, If I go early I am good. Which I plan to be there before the sun rises for sure.


#6

Sorry they are sold out

Yea as long as you get there early you should be good. Be down in line at 7:30am if I was you!
