On January 21st, YRSF is proud to present:
**The Double Barrel: Rise of The Underdogs Redux & “Chivalry is Dead” Femme Fatales
You asked for more so we’re bringing you more! This January comes a New Year and a new host of challengers.
The popular and well received Rise of The Underdogs format returns but this time as a full-scale pair of tournaments with no bracket cap. As with the inaugural event there will be a set of eligibility criteria posted in the second post. The purpose of this type of an event is to encourage and promote the most balanced playing field while providing “amateur” players with the opportunity to compete without fear of facing wily Tournament veterans.
A Panel of judges for each game will determine player eligibility
By continuing our trend of setting a precedence in the community we are very excited to also feature a Ladies-only SSFIV:AE Tournament entitled “Chivalry is Dead – Femme Fatales” . We are posting well in advance so that all of the aspiring lady Street Fighter players can begin their training regimen.
So fellas, let your girlfriends, wives, friends, sisters, cousins - whomever know! Offer up your coaching skills, serve as a mentor and encourage them to come out. This is going to be a great opportunity to break down some barriers as we bear witness to a showcase of skills made from sugar and spice.
As an added bonus, each participant will receive a complimentary YRSF Babydoll Tee (while quantities last)
We will be hosting some “Ladies Nights” casuals in upcoming weeks. Stay tuned and start training!
Emily Chow (Emlarr) has been kind enough to offer up her assistance with the bracket running. Emily is a true inspiration for fellow Lady gamers as she’s an avid Fighting Game fan and player herself.
Thanks so much Emlarr!!!
