It's time to show other communities what we are really made of by making an impression at EVO 2015! The event has been known about for a while now, but you can now RSVP on Big E's Facebook Invitational thread. We already have 15 planning on going including: @Mr. Wah, @E-Mann, @XcaliburBladez, @Crazy Steady, @NukNuks, @iHajinShinobi and other players from the community.
That roster alone should tell you how serious of a tournament this is. With a $1,000 pot bonus and help from Big E, we are advancing from our tournament last year, and improvement is always a good thing no matter how you look at it.
Okay so, with the new game released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and the fact that taking pictures is now easier, How about a photo contest to celebrate? Free Step Dodge has offered to provide a free code to the Steam version of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round to the winner.
Update: Team NINJA has donated a Steam DLC key of the new NINJA pack ($75 USD value) to be given to the winner as well. So if you already have a copy of the Steam version, you still have a prize to receive as DLC.
This brings the total prize pack to the winner as follows:
Over the last month or so I've observed several instances which, frankly, have made me embarrassed to be a part of this community.
There seems to be an cognitive dissonance going on in some of the DOA competitive community. On one hand, we'll complain about how DOA doesn't get enough respect in the larger FGC community, that people under-appreciate the depth of the game, and that DOA deserves a larger presence and acknowledgement at major tournaments.
On the other hand, we openly talk sh*t about the game in tournament chat rooms & WHILE COMMENTATING for the tournament on stream. We belittle our game when talking to Street Fighter/Marvel/KI/etc. players at offline events. We'll rage in online lobbies if there's any lag, and...
This video is meant to shed some light on what Rig is capable of in ver. 1.02. It goes over B&B setups, Critical Burst setups, Power launcher combos (indoors and outdoors), as well as environmental combos. All the combos displayed in the video CANNOT be stagger escaped, which means that your opponent is put in a situation where he is forced to guess and risk a hold.
I hope you find this video both informative and entertaining. ^^

Thanks to community contributor @DestructionBomb we have the NCR 15 tournament recorded in better quality. Might be good for anyone scoping out the competition for SCR which is scheduled to happen in the coming months as a Battle Royal sponsorship match. Watch it on your PC, your phone, your laptop or your console; offline if you want. Just remember to skip the first ten minutes of previews.
Are you ready for the SCR? After some super intense matches at NCR, I hope you are! We saw the return of one of DOA's finest competitors.... Requiem... aka... CJ... aka, uh Corposant... I guess he was living in the 16th century with that name, but alas he has won the major defeating Hajin in a very methodical finale.
