The SoCal Vampire Savior community is coming up on a milestone. After six years of Vampire Savior tournaments at a variety of venues, starting all the way back in late 2010, we've ran a total of 98 local tournaments. 100 is a big number, but first we must clear the 99th tournament.
This Friday, September 16, we'll be holding the 99th SoCal Vampire Savior tournament at Game Realms in Burbank, California. While I have bigger plans for the 100th tournament, including prizes (please don't expect much!), the 99th tournament will be simple. Very simple.
Single Match, Single Elimination.
I'm hoping for some quick and intense matches, and some big shake-ups with this format. We'll have to wait for the day itself to see how it goes though! This game in particular I think provides a certain experience with this format from what I've seen with Japanese events. I'm personally eager to throw everything into a single match where we walk a thin line between life and death!
For those coming to the event, it starts at 8pm PT.
The Stream will go live at about 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET, and the tournament itself will start an hour after that at 9:30pm PT/12:30am ET.
This tournament will probably go FAST, I'm expecting it to take only an hour max, so you'll want to be on the stream watching when we start if you don't want to miss it! I will be attempting to stream every single match.
In addition, the regular Skullgirls and Guilty Gear AC+R tournaments that run alongside Vampire Savior have agreed to go along with my crazy idea and are running single match, single elimination tournaments as well. We'll be running them one after the other, in the order of VSAV > SG > GG+R.
Another big benefit of running this format is the extra time to run some serious casual sets afterwards in preparation for the 100th tournament happening two weeks later.
