Hey guys, this weekend is the start of the next ranbat season at Arcade Legacy, which includes KOFXIII as a main game! If you've never been to AL, it's the central hub for fighting game players in Cincinnati, as well as a home-away from home stomping ground for Dayton, Columbus, and various surrounding areas. Entry is cheap ($10) and covers the whole day with no extra fees.

They've just moved to a new location inside a mall, which means food within walking distance (though the mall is in the progress of being renovated so not a ton of stuff), and yes you can bring outside food to the venue, though they have drinks and snacks as well. There's a surprising amount of space in the new location. I think 8 dedicated setups with ASUS 'Evo' monitors, plus extra ones on top of that probably. Ping pong tables, classic arcade games. They have Vampire Savior on cab with good comp at any time of the day. Here's the link to the original SRK thread, followed by a copy-paste for your convenience so you can read how the ranbats work.

Quote from: Arcade Legacy
Season 6 of the AL Ranking Battles will start on March 10th, 2012.

AL RANKING BATTLES FORMAT: ALL of the ranbat games are played on the same day. Instead of a set amount of money as the prize at the end of the season, you guys will end up making the prize money grow. How this will work is $2 from every admission will go into the pot of the main ranbat game you came to play each week. You can still play in all of the games if you wish, but your prize money can only be put towards one of the four main games. Obviously you will want that to go towards the game you feel you have the best chance of placing TOP 5 (or 3 or 2). The pot will be split 50/25/12/8/5, 70/20/10 and 70/30 for top 5,3, & 2 respectively. It will depend on how much money is in the pot at the end of the season. For example, if Marvel 3 averages 20 people a week, the pot will be around $200! In this instance, first place will take home about $100. There will also be prizes each week to the top 3 for each game.

I have a bunch of nice PS3 and XBOX360 sticks available for anyone to use, but I'd still recommend bringing your own if you've got one.

STREAM: The newly assembled AL stream will make it's ranbat debut this season. Catch the action here -
