Virtual-On GAIJIN CUP
May 27th, 2017. Starting at 6PM EST
live on twitch.tv/personapunk
Must be in the stream chat for tournament or be in the VO Community Discord https://discord.gg/2rnNYVN

Running a tournament strictly for us non-Japanese players. Thought it would be fun since we haven't had any OMG tournaments. Hope to see you guys! Please join the Discord for more information! I would like to make this a bi-monthly event if people are interested enough in it and add prizes if there are enough players for future ones.

Thanks for setting this up! It sounds fun but I probably can't attend. :cry:

We still have some time and almost no one has signed up, so maybe we can change the date or time?

I have no plans to change the date. I think many
did not see this is all. As I said in the thread, this may possibly be bi-monthly if at least 8 people sign-up for OMG and VOOT (I don't think people are willing to find partners for VO4 but maybe people can find teams in the Discord) meaning there will be opportunities. If the tournament was only a few days away, I would consider but that is not the case.

There is still alot of time to sign up so if you know people who would want to enter, message them.

Seeing as it is currently an extra long free Gold weekend I propose we move the tournament up one week to May 20th. If not, perhaps we could hold two tournaments, or at the very least a special gathering this weekend?

To sum up there were some organizational issues. Overall I thought it was unique, but maybe too ambitious to squeeze in 3 tournaments at once. The mandatory Friend request seems like a decent idea.

About multiple players from the same location, consider how fortunate we were to get so many participants. Not only that, we had nearly all the 3~4 champions of the Zapcon tournaments in attendance! I guess since they had a real life party going on there, at times they had difficulty showing up. Remember that from the point of view of participants they are doing nothing most of the time and will tend to drift away or engage in casual battles.

Maybe we could have put top priority into having everyone at one location do their battles without gaps. This cannot fully be planned in advance without knowing the brackets and results, but I think it would help.

Varryo has a Twitch stream archive. Most of the VOOM matches aren't part of the tournament. But he seems to have the entire VOOT tournament in good quality. His commentary didn't get recorded so you can only hear Zaarock's dialogue.

VOOM and VOOT side matches, VOOT tournament early rounds
VOOT tournament later rounds

Maybe later on SoulGuitarist can upload the VOOM tournament video.
