My how times flies when you’re having fun! We are back at it again for a 18th year and we aren’t stopping anytime soon! There’s 6 months until FINAL ROUND XVIII and the event will be here before you know it. Of course I personally would like to thank everyone in the FGC and the sponsors that have supported FINAL ROUND throughout the years because without you guys there wouldn’t be any FINAL ROUND or scene! Online Registration for your games are up now and we are running an early bird registration special right now so get it while you can! ($30 for badge online while it’s $50 at the door) We recommend you to register online as soon as possible to take advantage of the “Early Bird” special!

All team/Community ran events will be must held on Friday March 20 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 FR18 period! Any “Community event” will be ran by the communities that requested their game to be played at FR18. 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:

Of course we are going to bring back the popular series “CURLEY MUSTACHE BATTLE ROYALE” 5v5 team Regional tournament. The hype of FR + CM is too powerful and I know there will be more regions/teams allowed this year! More details coming soon for this instant classic!

Project M
VF5US
BB
P4U2
MvC2
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 acrade scene! Here’s a small list of games that will be at FR18:

Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo - on h2h Japanese cabinets
Street Fighter 3: 3rd strike - on h2h Japanese cabinets
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - on head 2 head japanese 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
Double Dragon!!!
and many more.

As always 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.

We will have multiple streams for FR18 for those that can not attend FR18 to get a small taste of the event. We are glad to have the following streamers for FR18:

Stream #1= Team Spooky - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
Stream #2= FunkyP - http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp
Anime = http://www.twitch.tv/sixfortyfive
Injustice = Kombatnetwork - http://www.twitch.tv/kombatnetwork
Smash stream to be announced!

We will have more updates as the months pass by so keep your eyes open for the goodies in future post! 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 FR18. It’s on now shawty! See you guys in march.

Confirmed for this.

Larry, the ending date for the tournament says 2014 in your post. Just a heads up.


#4

@ShinBlanka‌ is there a pre reg for spectators or do they have to stand in the long lines friday morning? Or are lines seperated as to not cause longish lines? Just curious cause I am bringing my girlfriend and if there is an option to pay for a spectators pass up front I am sure many would do so.


#5

Confirmed for this as well.

Looking forward to it.


#6

There will be a seperate line for spectators so she doesn’t have to wait in the long player line.

With FINAL ROUND 18 only 2 months away we are proud to announce that FR18 has been added to season 2015 of the CAPCOM PRO TOUR! We at FINAL ROUND LLC are extremely excited and honored to be apart of CPT to help grow the FGC to greater heights! Last year was a huge success and we’re looking to making it even bigger this year! This year we wanted to get the word out sooner so people will have a chance to save up to attend FR18. I know people want to know how much you’ll be competing for at FR18 in the CPT right?
Stay tuned for more details in the up coming weeks as we will be revealing all the goodies in due time! So now that’s done, if you would like to register for your games or reserve your hotel room you can do it now on www.finalround.org and look on the top bar on the far right for registering for your games or on the top left to reserve your rooms under the FR18 group rate!

Damnit, I hate last minute crap when it comes to if I can go or not. Guess I’ll more than likely be coughing up $80+ now since I just got the OK from Hyundai to have the days off.
