The 25th International Festival of Comics and Games has been announced as the latest event to join the Capcom Pro Tour lineup. Taking place October 4-5, 2014 in Łódź, Poland, the event will be one of the final chances for European players to earn points towards the Capcom Pro Tour.

In addition to Ultra Street Fighter IV, the event will also hold tournaments for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Mortal Kombat, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The winners of the Street Fighter and Tekken tournaments will each receive a PlayStation 4 as their prize for winning the tournament.

    Wow, something happening in Poland! That’s nice. Wish they played any games that interest me though.

    • Vandarkholme

      What games are you talking about? There is a high probability someone from the scene plays your game too

      • LockedAndClush

        BlazBlue, mostly. Persona 4 Arena is fine too. I’m not even expecting Garou or Samurai Shodown…

        • Vandarkholme

          Persona yeah, not really anyone playing it. As for BlazBlue we have some people, some of them are going to be at our “bursa” event this weekend in włocławek, if you want to play some offline games. A couple of people have played a bit of Garou, and I don’t think they would mind playing a bit of it on ggpo, me included. If you overall like anime games, there is a lot of people playing guilty gear, and a couple of ones playing Uniel.

          The polish community website is backdash.pl, not a lot of traffic going on at the forum itself, but the shoutbox is more than alive and the main center of the scene, along with a facebook group

            Włocławek is totally out of the way for me (I’m from Katowice), but I’ll ask around on the Backdash chat, I’m looking for players cause I have an opportunity to set up a scene here (I have a location, now I need people). Thanks a lot!
