Vote for Your Favorite Players in the Arc System Works Fighting Game Award 2016

By on November 30, 2016 at 7:00 pm

A special event from Arc System Works is coming up, and with it, they’re celebrating some of the best players for their two respective air-dashers, BlazBlue: Central Fiction and Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-. The Arc System Works Fighting Game Award 2016 pits crowd favorites and recent Toushinsai champions against each other with a special tournament in Japan that will take place on January 4th, 2017.

Some of the participants, due to their high placements, are automatically qualified in the first four spots:

Machaboo Sin (Evo 2016 Champion)
Omito Johnny (Evo 2nd place)
Tomo Leo (Toushinsai 1st)
Sabamiso Bedman (Toushinsai 2nd)

BBCF (which was a team competition at Toushinsai):
Fenrich Jin (Toushinsai 1st)
Iwashi Ragna (Toushinsai 1st)
Ryuusei Carl (Toushinsai 2nd)
Yuuta Jin (Toushinsai 2nd)

The remaining four spots for each game will be determined in the following ways: through a Kansai (West) qualifier at Neo Amusement Space Game A-Cho, and another qualifier at Kantou (East) qualifier at Shinjuku Sportsland–those will reveal one combatant each, and the final two, for both BBCF and GGXrd, are up to the fans.
