We're excited to be hosting a launch tournament for the premier 3D weapon based fighting game, Soulcalibur VI!
Like all launch tournaments that we do, there will be no entry fee as this is a free tournament. Keep in mind that this also means there will likely be no prizes. This is more of an early chance to get everyone playing the game.
Casuals will be available all day.
Pre-Registration: Pre-Registration is not required, but is highly recommended as you will help brackets start sooner and give the TOs information to work with prior to the event.
