Civil War V Trailer – April 19th – 21st in Richmond, Virginia

By on February 27, 2013 at 10:45 am

Get ready to cut your opponent down to size at Civil War V on April 19th – 21st in Richmond, Virginia. Last year’s winners will be back to defend their titles, the famous Civil War sword replica trophies will be given to the winners, and all our old-school favorites (Capcom vs. SNK 2, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Super Street Fighter II Turbo) will be played on Japanese arcade cabs. And, as always, Team Spooky will be in attendance to provide a fantastic main stream.

Last year, the competition was fierce. Magneto Maniac showed the real power of Hugo in SFxTK, Dieminion sonic boomed his way to victory in AE 2012, and Chris G took home three swords for winning SFxTK, UMvC3 and Skullgirls. What craziness does the community have in store this year? Check out the trailer below, make plans to attend, and see it in person!

    Can’t wait!

  • Injustice’s debut, curious! hopefully the game won’t be broken with infinites and bugs by the time of the event 😛

    • Joey T Medina

      Considering that the game will have been out for 3 days during this tournament, I don’t think we’ll be seeing anything but day 1 combos and setups.

  • Eric Nguyen

    The guy on the front page picture… is that… Chris G?

  • Jon Nitti

    no SC5?  it’s kinda beat that majors don’t really want to cater towards smaller communities.

    • RenegadeVA

      SCV got 17 people last year as a major, with EVO points, 3 months after it came out, and with a sword to the winner. It’s just not fair to advertise it as an event if the scene won’t support it.


      • Jon Nitti

        the reason why it draws small numbers like that is because we are a smaller community and with a major every single week its kinda hard to get to all of them, especially when we dont have stream monsters throwing all sorts of money in donations to top players in our game

        • RenegadeVA

          I understand. I like Soul Calibur, I play the game casually myself. 

          Last years SCV tournament was a huge disappointment given all the things going for it (new release, EVO game, EVO points, Sword trophy) and that’s 100% of the reason it’s not a main game this year. 

          Also, this year it has to compete for PS3 setups instead of Xbox (which I have much less of). 

          It’s better to leave it as a community side tournament at best than to advertise it, it get low numbers, and see some poor sap travel from Idaho just to play in a 7 person Calibur tournament. 

          Please continue to support your game and bring it to tournaments. Jibbo did that for SFxT, and now it’s back in full force. Also happened with ST, GG, and plenty of other games. 

      • Joshua Travis

        There were over 60 entrants at UFGT last year. I didn’t realize the other majors had so few entrants.


    Aaaah, I was kinda thinkin about going this year, but it’s on the same week as Sega Cup at Super Arcade (which I already bought a plane ticket for)

    Ah well, at least I can stream monster

    Alpha 2?!  CvS2?!  SSF2T?!  All we need is Marvel 2 and the circle of twos would be complete! 😀

    • RenegadeVA

      Look at the trailer again. MvC2 will be there!

  • This tourney is going to be great expect to see Fuerte the Honda back in action. If I make top 3 I want a civil war pic yo.
     Expect more HYPE like this @ 8:40:

  • UseProtection

    Trailer was good for the first half then got bad once the WUB WUB started.

    • RenegadeVA

      I could only count maybe one or two wubs, really. I love the original, but it’s way too iconic to use in a trailer.

      This is the whole remix:

  • There is no sf3 3rd strike?
    I wanna play. 
    I came to Vancouver from Japan.
    I’m looking for places to play 3s. I prefer ball-top joystick.
    If someone knows, plz tell me.
