Final Round 17 is just around the corner and everyone is getting hyped up! In order to pull everyone into our excitement, community members have crafted a Pre-Final Round podcast. @RTD @Jimbonator @Blueboyb @Ringout and @Ramon recap all of the events leading up to today. In the video they cover the latest Southern California Regionals, Winter Brawl, the players who will be attending, and much more! This will be the biggest SCV event since EVO 2012.
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.
Recently revealed via the SCR (Southern California Regionals) 2014 lineup stream on LevelUpLive, Alex Valle announced that 20 games would be present at this year's event. Among those titles, SoulCalibur V will be making it's return for the 2nd time and joining it will be the recently launched SoulCalibur II:HD.
Whether or not you are familiar with Avylon; this collective of dedicated FGC players have been recording matches for us at majors such as Summerjam, The Fall Classic, Filthy Cup, and most recently, NEC.
Thanks to Avylon we have over 50 recorded matches that happened off stream that I'm sure many were interested to see how they went down. Thanks to the new playlist feature in the media section I have compiled one just for this event.
Also thanks to Bifuteki for streaming some pool play and top 8! Happy digging and enjoy the matches!
As we gear up for the release of Soulcalibur II HD Online sometime this fall, Aris has been producing content for people to become reacquainted with the game. His latest video covers his first ever recorded match at the Soulcalibur II National tournament held in Las Vegas on February 8, 2003, where he faces Misato in the first round.
I wasn’t around during the period when SCII was active, so I really enjoy hearing from the players who were around during that time and hearing the backstory to these videos. And if anyone else has details they would like to share, feel free to do so in the comments section of this article.
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!
Summer Jam VII (2nd of the 3 majors presented by Big-E Gaming each year) is taking place this weekend in Philadelphia, PA at the Sheraton Suites Hotel! SCV is included in the line up, so expect to see a number of new and familiar faces from the East Coast in addition to a few outsiders. It's looking to be a great start to the upcoming saturated tournament season that is this fall,
