ST - in the arcade room
3S - in the arcade room
We will have a BYOC room for people to play casuals during the event that spectators can play also. We will also have a FINAL ROUND Arcade thanks to Tony Majors. The same guy who brought the arcade to TFC is packing up his gear and driving to the ATL so everyone can enjoy the old school root on which this community was built! Here’s a small list of games that will be at FR17:
Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo - on h2h Japanese cabinets
Street Fighter 3: 3rd strike - on h2h Japanese cabinets
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - on American stand up cab with Sanwa parts
Capcom VS SNK 2 - Japanese cab
Marvel VS Capcom 2 - Japanese cab
Samurai Showdow 2 - American stand up cab Japanese parts
and many more. I 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.
We will have multiple streams for FR17 for those that can not attend FR17 to get a small taste of the event. We are glad to have the following streamers for FR17:
Stream #1= Team Spooky - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
Stream #2= FunkyP - http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp

So with FR17 less than 5 months away there will be qualifiers around the USA and the World coming soon so please stay tuned for more details as they come available. So who is ready for the Tradition that is FR17? I know I am! Also in the memory of Richard “WingZero” Warren his picture will be on the back of each badge in his honor.
