Hello guys, glad to see you after such an involved weekend. It seems like one FGC recap article a week doesn’t really do much justice to the amount of news that goes in some times in the FGC.

Capcom Pro Tour Announcement!

urien-sfv-sept-screenshot4

Capcom dropped a bombshell this morning and went ahead and announced all of the CPT events for this year. In addition to some major changes to how players will qualify, there also seems to be less events. So far it doesn’t seem like players will be exhausted like last year.

First Attack 2017 Teaser

I feel bad that this got passed over. So yeah First Attack is coming back this year. It will be on September 2nd and 3rd. If you missed First Attack last year, that is when we saw the true power of the turbulent wind via the enthusiastic John Takeuchi.

You don’t really wanna miss First Attack. From the rawness of the crowd to the upsets in the tournaments, First Attack is sure to leave a strong impression on you. For additional tournament info, please seek the tourney tab.

 

Choctaw Festival of Gaming

choctaw-gaming-use

For those unaware, my local Versus Gameplay Arcade, is having the Choctaw Festival of Gaming. This event is a celebration of gaming in general. There is a SFV tournament with a 5k pot, a Smash tournament with a 5k pot, a For Honor tournament with a 2k pot, and a Battleborn tournament with a 10K pot. If you aren’t interested in any of those games, you can always pay $18 bucks and get into the Bring your own console area.

The Bring Your Own Console area is a huge space open the entire weekend. You can play any game you want and even host your own tournaments or money matches if you please. If the BYOC area isn’t your thing, you can always enjoy the district.

The district consist of a 3,600 square foot arcade, 20 lane bowling center, 2 story laser tag arena, and 4 auditorium Cinema. So pretty much you’re bases are covered in regards to things to do.

For more info please refer to the VGP website here.

 

That’s it for now! Come back tomorrow for more FG news.
