Although Fightcade gave us some technical difficulties at the start we did manage to play some Samurai Shodown V Special and proceed with the tournament. The rules for this tournament required character lock meaning the participants were allowed to choose only 1 character meaning they were not allowed to switch after losing.
Much appreciated to all that came to play with us and watch the stream we’re an open community that welcomes all no matter the skill level.
We do plan to play some other Samurai Shodown games available on fightcade with the original Samurai Shodown being one that might make it out on the vote on the discord. Get ready to see some clunky Heavy Slashes and Oki setups after dashing throws .
Next Tournament should be on Feburary 3rd Time: TBD
I’d like to introduce Saturday Shodown a Biweekly Tournament held on Fightcade for Samurai Shodown V special hosted by the Samurai Shodown Discord. The tournament welcomes players of all skill level to join in. Players from North America, South America and Europe are allowed to join (Sorry Asia players). Some of our tournaments have special rules such as character lock or 3v3 KOF style tournaments, the rules for the tournaments will usually be on challonge page of the tournament. We are also thinking about the possibility of doing other Samurai Shodown games that are on fightcade. Most of the discussion for the tournaments will be done on our discord and we have a bot that sets reminders on when the next tournament happens. We usually stream it on twitch too
We will be posting tournament results and Youtube VOD on DreamCancel. Feel free to join the discord and ask questions about the game and its mechanics.
Catch the return of the Crazy Battle Circuit for 2018 as we open up with SNK’s The Last Blade 2 on Fightcade! The tournament is open to players of all skill levels and worldwide so long as you have stable, wired internet. It will take place on Tuesday, January 30th @ 1PM PST (4PM Eastern). To see more details and sign-up, please see the official website’s page for the game at http://cbc.dx.am/lastbld2.html or the Challonge page.

In a short amount of time & thanks to the King of Fighters community, the fundraiser for the prize pot for the 3rd KingsofCo King of Fighters XIV Online Tournament (held October 29th) has exceeded it’s goal and it now currently at $1000 dollars in prizes, that will be distributed to the top 8 winners!
Also, the bracket of players have grown a considerate amount because of the high amount of interest! The starting time on Sunday now is 3pm Mountain Time, which is 2pm Pacific, 4pm Central, and 5pm Eastern Standard Time. This will ensure the tournament will have enough time to run throughout the day for the amount of players that have joined. Check out the matcherino page here:
