Don’t miss out on this years event as we have more goodies to announce in the up coming weeks! FINAL ROUND XV is only 33 days away!

We are proud to announce that FINAL ROUND XV will be on March 2-4, 2012. The hype doesn’t stop and we had to start extra early on planning for FR15. As of right now the

Major game roster for FRXV are as followed:

****** = Games apart of the Evolution Tournament Season***

1. Super Street Fighter 4 AE v.2012***
2. Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom3***
3. Soul Calibur V***
4. Mortal Kombat9***
5. BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2
6. Melty Blood AACC (PC only)
7. TekkenTagTournamentHD
8. King Of Fighters 13***
9. Street Fighter III 3rd strike online edition
10. Tekken6

The systems used will be PS3 for the time being. This may change if I get sponsorship from another source. Other games will be added to the list, but those are the core games that will be played at FR15 up to this moment. We have A LOT IN STORE for people that plan to attend FR15 that we will be hinting towards throughout the year. Being the 15th anny of FR we have to do it BIG this year event and that is one reason we are changing venues for FR15.

As always we aim to bring you the best tournament you’ve ever competed in each and every year and FR15 will try to top this years event! We are upgrading the venue from this past year event and we hope everyone will enjoy our new venue. The “WESTIN” is the new home of FR15 and here’s the location:

The “WESTIN” Atlanta Perimeter North

7 Concourse Parkway
Atlanta,Georgia
30328
United States

With the 15th aniversary of Final Round we felt that we had to upgrade on the venue and we heard the complaints about having to pay for parking. This year there will be NO PARKING FEE’S!!! That goes for players that get a room at the hotel or for those that want to spectate. The Room rates will be $93.00 per night (Normally $165) if you reserve under the Final Round 15 group rate.

I CAN’T WAIT for this event to happen! If you think your serious about Fighting games and you always wanted to come to Final Round, but never had the chance to attend then don’t MISS the 15th aniversary of FINAL ROUND!

Message to the STREAM MONSTER/STREAM CREEP:

This up coming year in March 2-4, 2012 FINAL ROUND XV will have 2 HIGH QUALITY Streams. It’s confirmed “Team SPOOKY” at http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky will be the Main stream for the 15th Anniversary of FINAL ROUND! With the excellent job “Mr. Victor Fontanez” did with FR14 we had to invite him to Stream FR15. Team spooky will be streaming All of the top 8 events on sunday March 4th, 2012 and various games throughout the 3 day event.

Also we are hype to announce that a very talented streamer called “FunkyP” at http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp will be the 2nd stream during FINAL ROUND XV.

[INDENT=1]Hey man the easiest way to geto the hotel from the airport is to take the local transit system. Our train is called MARTA. It cost $2.50 to ride and there is a station with a train at the airport that will take you to the hotel. Check out the following website for location of stations and where you have to goto.[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1] [/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]http://www.itsmarta.com/ns-med-overview.aspx this is for the medical center and it’s the closer out of the 2 stations. The shortest to walk from if you can’t get a shuttle.[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1] [/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]http://www.itsmarta.com/ns-dun-overview.aspx[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]This is a spot for a major atlanta mall so you might get distracted by the ATL females on the train and going towards the mall.[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1] [/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]There are 2 MARTA stations within a mile of the event hotel and you can call the hotel shuttle to pick you up from the train station if you have a room booked under the Final Round group rate. I hope this helps you out sir.[/INDENT]

There is NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED in the MAIN BALLROOM! Also there is a no open container policy in the hotel so you can’t be walking around the hotel with a cup of your favorite beverage in the hotel. This is not a casino people! You may drink in your room or at the bar in the hotel, but there can’t be people walking around the hotel with open containers in The Westin Hotel period! This behavior could put the event in jeopardy of being cancelled by the hotel so this is a SERIOUS policy not to forget!
