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.
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.
Hey everyone! Final Round is rapidly approaching, with it taking place in the middle of March this year (March 14th-16th) and as usual looking to be one of the bigger events for SoulCalibur in NA. Thanks to @ShinBlanka and others, we now have Final Round as a main game.
A lot of people are hyped up for this tournament and like previous years, there will be a number of great players coming out to play. @RTD has recently made a generous offer to help finance players who are uncertain if they can go to Final Round via Facebook.
Belial has recently written an excellent guide on the basics of footsies. Thankfully, he informed me about his article and I have posted it on the front page for him. Please give him all the credit for sharing his information and experience.
Midland Warfare (hosted by mkl) will be starting this weekend in Lincoln, NE at the Holiday Inn Lincoln Airport. The event will exclusively be a Soulcalibur tournament on Saturday, October 12th, along with other fighting games on the 13th.
Expect to see great players from and outside of Nebraska fighting for first place and that lovely $300 SCV pot bonus thanks to mkl. The stream will be provided by IRM on his twitch channel, so be sure to watch!
With the recent announcement of SCII HD Online, I am sure the majority of new players are concerned that old school players are going to be way ahead and wipe the floor with others. Whether or not this turns out to be true, Aris (WGC SCII Champion) was nice enough to make a guide to Soulcalibur II.
Everyone will have a chance to jump into the game competitively with a guide, thus make the learning process easier also. Aris will also be uploading more SCII videos in the future on his channel AvoidingthePuddle that will have tutorials and gameplay for other characters.
