 Hello everyone we are back at it again for a 17th year and we can not wait! There's less than 5 months until FINAL ROUND XVII so the event will be here before you know it. Of course I personally would like to thank everyone in the FGC and the sponsors that have supported FINAL ROUND throughout the years because without you guys there wouldn't be any FINAL ROUND or scene! This years event will be held on St Patrick day weekend so you're in for a wild weekend of gaming! Online Registration for your games are up now and we are running an early bird registration special right now so get it while you can! We recommend you to register online as soon as possible to take advantage of the "Early Bird" special! You will receive a discount on the badge price based on the schedule below:

 $20 Spectator fee. Children under the age of 12 (accompanied with parent) unless they are competing are free to spectate and elderly are also free to spectate. We will also have a lost badge fee of $10 for those that miss place your badge during the event, but you must show PROOF OF PURCHASE to receive the lost badge fee. If you can not show proof of purchase you will have to pay the full emergency door fee of $50 to regain entry to the event. If you are competing in ANY singles/teams/exhibition/side tournament at FR17 you must get a players badge to compete.

 Nobody wants to be in that long line on Friday anyways so please register as soon as you can to make sure you're entered into the game you wish to compete in at FR17 at the following link:

http://www.finalround.org/register.cfm

 To reserve a hotel room please call the hotel at  404-767-9000  and ask for the final round 17 group rate. It's the double bed room for $93 until rooms run out. They will not charge your card until you check in so don't miss out on getting your room today! Online reservation page is still under construction, but as soon as it's ready I will post the link. Don't call the 1-800 number on the national website because they will not know about the fr group rate.

 Here's the list of the following games that are on the official tournament line up:

 Games:

 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (360) - $10
 BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma (PS3) - $10
 Super Street Fighter IV: AE v2012 (360) - $10

 All team/side events will be must held on Friday March 14 as this is the only day we have available to run them in a timely manner. All team/exhibitions/side events must get approved by ME to be ran at FR17 period! Side events will be ran by the communities that requested their game to be played at FR17.

 Team/exhibitions/side events that are confirmed as of now are as followed:

 Of course we are going to bring back the popular series "CURLEY MUSTACHE BATTLE ROYALE" 5v5 team Regional tournament. The hype of FR + CM is too powerful and I know there will be more regions/teams allowed this year! More details coming soon for this instant classic!

 VF5US
 Melty Blood
 SoulCaliburV
 GGXXACR
 ST - in the arcade room
 3S - in the arcade room

 We will have a BYOC room for people to play casuals during the event that spectators can play also. We will also have a FINAL ROUND Arcade thanks to Tony Majors. The same guy who brought the arcade to TFC is packing up his gear and driving to the ATL so everyone can enjoy the old school root on which this community was built! Here's a small list of games that will be at FR17:

 Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo - on h2h Japanese cabinets
 Street Fighter 3: 3rd strike - on h2h Japanese cabinets
 Street Fighter Alpha 2 - on American stand up cab with Sanwa parts
 Capcom VS SNK 2 - Japanese cab
 Marvel VS Capcom 2 - Japanese cab
 Samurai Showdow 2 - American stand up cab Japanese parts
 Double Dragon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 and many more. I don't want people to forget the origins of the FGC so having some type of link to the past is important to me and the arcade is where this community came from. Spectators can play casuals in the arcade.

 We will have multiple streams for FR17 for those that can not attend FR17 to get a small taste of the event. We are glad to have the following streamers for FR17:

 Stream #1= Team Spooky - http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
 Stream #2= FunkyP - http://www.twitch.tv/funkyp
 Anime = http://www.twitch.tv/sixfortyfive
 Injustice/MK stream = Kombatnetwork - http://www.twitch.tv/kombatnetwork

 So with FR17 less than 5 months away there will be qualifiers around the USA and the World coming soon so please stay tuned for more details as they come available. So who is ready for the Tradition that is FR17? I know I am! Also in the memory of Richard "WingZero" Warren his picture will be on the back of each badge in his honor.

I really didn't know how many people are still playing these days.  Of course you guys will have half of the anime room on Friday to run singles and teams.

Honestly? I think for a lot of people it's a "tournament game" (much in the same way something like GGAC is). In that they don't really actively play or train, but they'll enter it at a tournament. Given the number of people who have entered in the past (for both MB specifically and anime games in general), I think it'll be OK as a side game.

Hopefully, I'll be able to make it to FR this year. Couldn't go last year due to conflicts with work. ;_;

Like Dippy said, it being treated as a side game is perfect & there should be a choice to run it between singles & teams (people are probably going to choose singles to play more matches & get their monies worth). Three through five monitors/CPU should be good which leaves the question, who's bringing setups?

Unsure if I'll be out this year. Depends on my money situation, but I can probably get a friend to split the room with me.

I'd really like to go but so far the trip is gonna cost more than what I'd consciously let loose from my wallet without taking heavy mental damage, specially since I dont have any income right now. Waiting for a promo.

Last year was really fun and I'd compete in more games this time, so I can expect it to be at least twice as much.

If you plan on attending FR17 and you don't want to play against the guy you practice/traveled with everyday in the 1st round of pools YOU NEED PRE REGISTER NOW! When you pre register we seed by city/state/regional seeding to try and eliminate players from the same state traveling together and playing each other in the 1st round of pools. For this process to completely work we need everyone that plans to attend FR17 to pre register online asap!

 Please go to http://www.finalround.org/register.cfm to register for your badge and the games you'll compete in at FR17! There's only 80 days until FR17! GET HYPE!!!!!!

Thanks to Bluelink, the promo ticket I was looking for found me so now I can say I'm confirmed for this year's Final Round as well.

This time I'd like to split a room with other Melty players so we can have the Melty equivalent of last year's Persona room. Hopefully we can play our eyeballs out and have fun poverty style without making too much noise and getting almost kicked out. Preferably we should get a room in the executive floor so we can eat breakfast for free and have nicer things, but I'm down otherwise too. I want to play you guys again!

I'd check out Monday btw, anyone that's cool with that get at me.

MELTAAAYYYYY

Ok for those that have called the hotel to reserve the normal double bed rooms under the FR17 group rate $93(normally $120) and there are sold out so let me see if I can get some more rooms added! I TOLD Y'ALL THEY WOULD START GOING FAST! Give me some time and i'll call the hotel tomorrow morning to try and get more hotel rooms open for the FR17 group. If I can get more rooms added to the group you better reserve them when you can! We are probably going to book the whole hotel full of FR17 peeps! Also be advised that all rooms under the FR group rate will receive free wifi throughout your stay at FR17!

"As of right now only rooms available online for the FR discounted rate are the following:"

 1 king bed = $93 per night- normally $119
 2 double bed executive floor= $119 per night- normally $150
 1 king bed executive floor= $113 per night- normally $150
 1 king junior suite= $133 per night-normally $245 ask Tray "Iceman" because this is what they tried to charge him per night without the FR group rate!"

 If I can gets some more rooms make sure you grab them at https://resweb.passkey.com/Resweb.do?mode=welcome_ei_new&eventID=10704122

 There's only 18 days until online registration is closed so you need to get that badge asap to save $10 on your badges.  Register online for FINAL ROUND XVII and save $10 off the badge.  Go to http://www.finalround.org/register.cfm to sign up for the games/badges so we can make pools well in advance.

I'll ask Larry if something can be done about that. I think it's just more of "hook up and find the hotel internet."
