I like to announce things when details are all in place, however on this occasion I need to get the details out there for the benefit of the players ASAP.
I will be running European Qualifiers for VxG. We will be sending one player for SSF4 and one player for UMVC3. Flights and hotel covered.
It will most likely be held in London – I was looking at Paris that’s pretty much not going to happen now. So I want people to be able to save some money for travel etc.
If it is in London and you are coming from elsewhere, the most cost effective option for overnight stay will be the Generator Hostel – it is a VERY GOOD hostel as well (I’ve stayed in the one in Dublin).
Both tournaments at VxG have $14,000 in prize money with $6,000 for first place. More details here when everything is confirmed.
When is VxG?
25-28th July 2013, St Maarten.”
