Among this 3 tournaments, the most surprising one to me is the FC Championship. Never thought there will be a game, that someone is willing to hold a tournament with huge awards (50k yen for No.1 !! Worthy over a TANITA.), after 25 years since its launching!

The origins described in the opening of its page, by the championship founder, touched me somewhat. These words remind me my youth days and proper attitudes toward a game I unseeingly win. So I translated it and asked permission to distributed it. Here it is:

====================

"Ask, and it shall be given to you."

When it was released in 1995, I was a high school student. I was invited by a classmate to a game room, and encountered this game. I was mesmerized by the overwhelming sense of speed and immersion, and soon found myself devoting all of my allowance and lunch money to Virtual-On.

At that time, I was in agony because I was beginning to realize that I was nobody. And the world, of one-on-one games with clear-cut victories and defeats, was really so vivid to me. It was this game that taught me the joy of winning, the frustration of losing, and the importance of patience and competency.

More than 25 years have passed since then. Thanks to the people who have continued to maintain the playing environment, we can now say that Virtual-On has the best playing environment in terms of communication infrastructure and control devices. The time has finally caught up with a game that has come too early. We have not yet reached the depths of this simple, yet deep and difficult game.

With its high degree of freedom and lack of repeatability, Virtual-On is similar to Shogi.* The serious competition of advanced thinking and strategy is the best entertainment. I want to share this pleasure with as many people as possible. I also want to create a tournament that will become a goal for all OMG players. That is the main purpose of this tournament.

What kind of drama will be created by the passion, of those who want to be strong? And who will win the crown? I look forward to all of them.

Championship Organizer
F.S.I. Inc.
CEO Kazuhiro Bito

• Japanese Chess.
