Season’s Beatings: The Mecca of Marvel and Origin of Brokentier IFC Yipes' “IT’S MAHVEL BABY!” Now in our sixth year of All-Star players and Dream-Team Special Events, for 2012, Godlike Entertainment - Chris Hatala (Ghaleon) and Harmon Tam (nomrah) – brings you Season’s Beatings: Ascension, featuring:

*U.S. vs. The World (Marvel vs. Capcom 3, 5-on-5 Special Exhibition)
*FGC “All-Star” roster of tournament talent and star power, across all games
*Free Season’s Beatings shirt and SBa dogtag for paid competitors
*Special events and guests as we confirm them
*Giant tournament and casuals areas
*Cleveland hotspots to eat and drink

We traveled to SCR and witnessed the hype of NorCal vs. SoCal, and soon after were hooked on KOF13. EVO 2012 -- with IGL Bala and Cafeid MadKOF -- gave us one of the most exciting EVO Grand Finals of all time, and interest in KOF is at a universal all-time high.

As huge fans of the game, we at Goldike Entertainment are focusing our efforts on the KOF community big-time for Season's Beatings: Ascension. We look forward to bringing you details on our crazy plans soon that all KOF fans will love. We are working closely with TheAnswer and in talks with Atlus to put on a show that proves KOF is here to stay at major FGC events!

IT HAS BEGUN: A new chapter opens in FGC history as we rise from the ashes of our beginnings and ascend to stratospheric heights, with a new venue and more epic events.

Stream Graphics/SB Imagery by Seth Mussey -- since 2010!

“Kumite is for the fighters, not the people who read newspapers.” – Frank W. Dux, Bloodsport

Despite the upgrades, we remain rooted in what we’ve always valued: a tournament. It's a kumite starring everyone, from traveled world warriors to local living room champions, all traveling to Ohio to witness and be a part of history and to show their competitor’s heart.

SB will never be about carnival gimmicks, pats on the back or photo opportunities for ourselves. Since 2006, we’ve simply strived to bring you the one of the world’s best arenas to square off against friends and rivals alike, alongside godlike special events and an unmatched atmosphere. And as long as you enjoy it, we’ll keep doing it. Now, prepare to FIGHT!

Pre-Registeration is LIVE at ! Registering on-site on tournament weekend means NO free shirt and HIGHER venue fee, so please pre-reg! We're saving you $$ and rewarding you for it!

With Season’s Beatings through the years, we watched uncountable legendary moments transpire at our famous venue, Momo2. From our Undisputed Heavyweight Marvel vs. Capcom 2 showdowns, to the Daigo-in-Ohio invasions of 2009 and 2010, to last year’s creative and unprecedented Good vs. Evil Phoenix 5v5 at SB:Velocity, we (so many SB participants) have built a lifetime’s worth of memories at that beloved, unique venue.

Unfortunately, as of 2012, Godlike Entertainment must look to the future as Momo2 announced its closing as of August. Momo2 gave us an amazing six years; it was synonymous with our event.

But the heart of SB is YOU, the players who travel from around the world to experience the riotous, uberhype SB atmosphere, and the way we run our event will not change. We’ll miss our old home, but we look forward to bringing you the SB experience with upgraded surroundings:

*8,500 sq. feet of space

*In-venue food and adult beverage lounge, open until 2 a.m.

*Across the street from some of a major U.S. city’s most famous and hottest hangouts, offering award-winning sandwiches and hundreds of beers, even with on-request shuttle service to drive you back to your hotel.

*Indoor pool, sauna

How much?

For competitors: $35 +additional cost per game, pre-registration/pre-payment only

FREE SEASON’S BEATINGS T-SHIRT AND SBa DOGTAG for pre-registering as a competitor! Why? Because SB is and will always be a tournament, featuring the world’s best and hungriest talent, and we want to and reward everyone for supporting us and the FGC, from Justin Wong to Johnny Donuts.

For spectators: $20 enables to watch tournament matches and play casuals. The shirt will not be available for purchase; man up, play your favorite game(s), be a part of SB history!

We would love to host media!

ALL side games or Unofficial Team Tournaments are NOT GUARANTEED to finish in the kumite area.

We have very little leeway in scheduling.

Many, many more details to come, regarding media, production, online content, and top guests in all games. We look forward to directly engaging YOU, the players spending hard-earned money to come to our event!

For now, post up or contact Chris or Harmon through email (, PM, Facebook page, or Twitter (@gdlkEnt) with questions/feedback/advice. SRK PM is NOT the most efficient way to get ahold of us because of how quickly our inboxes fill!

Thank you for supporting Season's Beatings year after year and keeping it one of the world's largest -- and still grassroots -- Fighting-Game Community events.

Cafeid MadKOF has confirmed after weeks of planning and negotiations with the wonderful guys at Cafeid!

TheAnswer is working with us very closely to make sure it's an incredible KOF experience for its fans all along the world.

We're working on a Spanish stream as well -- Dark Geese tells us Luis Cha will be present too. Hoping for updates from Atlus in the next couple weeks about partnering with them.
