NCR 2014 is a tournament held in Sacramento Califronia starting April 18th. Unfortunately, NCR has excluded Soulcalibur on the main line up along with several other games. However, John Choi (NCR Tournament Organizer) has given all communities a chance to set up their own side tournaments.

@Alex.J and @Nyawu have gone out of their way to contact the Norcal Regionals staff so that they can host a side tournament for SCV and SCII. Soulcalibur will most likely start April 19th (Saturday) at 12PM PDT. If you plan on making it out to NCR, you can pre register for games on their website http://norcalregionals.com/.

Here are some of the deals he has offered us via Facebook. Click here to find out more...

With the revival of the Soulcalibur community online as well as offline, and the great results Thunder Dome (by Party Wolf) has been bringing, this tournament is aimed to keep the hype and interest flowing in both competitors and audience.

Just Frame Tier is an invitational tournament for ONLY the top players of the community, for a chance to win $100. This is an online tournament that will be carried out on PSN, and for best scheduling purposes it will be ran during the weekends, starting with the weekend after Final Round (March 22). Depending on the availability of the players, the amount of matches ran each weekend will be determined. Details after the break...

So by now we all know that the HD remake of SC2 was created using the European version of the game; which happened to be the final edition of the game when it came out back in the previous generation of consoles. Unfortunately, it also happened to be the worst version of the game; so bad that even at some European tournaments, they used the North American version!

Well this week, Bandai-Namco (formerly Namco-Bandai), released a patch that addresses some of the bugs introduced with the European version; as well as some of the bugs introduced in the HD-porting process. No word on whether or not this patch adjusts many of the issues with frames in the game, including the changes to clash windows... However, this is pretty good since I don't think any of us were expecting a patch in the first place. Full patch notes after the break...

Final round this year will be missing out on some of our top players. In order to make this Final Round the hypest event for Soulcalibur, @RTD has been putting in a ton of work. In the Soulcalibur Competitve Players Group, RTD has started a donation drive for two of our top players. @LostProvidence from Chicago and @lolo from Mexico would love to compete. However, LP and lolo need support from the community so that they can attend. See more about the players and how to donate...

Most of you know that Final Round this year is going to be a huge event for Soulcalibur V. Thanks to Shin Blanka and others in the Atlanta scene, Soulcalibur was added to the list of main games. However, we have ran into a problem. There are just so many top players coming this year for FR17 that we need your help!

You can help us out by giving us your speculations on who will make Top 3. We can determine how to make an appropriate bracket by the community telling us who the real top dogs are. Below is RTD's post in the Soul Calibur Competitive Players Facebook Group where he addresses our predicament. Click here to see who is coming...

What's up, gang? With much sadness, I bring to you the last character episode of the SoulCast. We have, indeed, reached that point in the series and Alpha Patroklos is the last non-Edgemaster character to do. Special thanks to LostProvidence for joining me on this finale and sharing his knowledge! I do have some shoutouts and such after the break (before the video), but otherwise enjoy!...
