A New Year is here, but what hasn't changed is our annual community appearance at Winter Brawl in Essington made possible by Big E Gaming with plenty of perks in store for DOA5 fighters. The tournament starts February 23rd, so now would be the perfect time to formulate your plans. Free Step Dodge will keep you posted on all the event news: including results, player pools and more.
Winter Brawl 7 took place in 2013, and it marked the community's first appearance with Dead or Alive 5 vanilla. Sweet Revenge not only defeated the unstoppable XcaliburBladeZ with Sarah, but broke a common misconception in the fighting game community: guest characters ARE awesome, and they can be viable. Since then we have seen other big wins from the Virtua Fighter characters, such as JC Akira's legendary performance at NEC 16.
Hearing Tom Lee's address to the community after NEC 18 was hard, but he gives us a reason to keep fighting and so does Big E, granting free entry to Last Round and a $500 prize pool. Big E has also said that Dead or Alive 5 will have a capacity of 96 fighters, and that he will add some money to the prize pool if DOA is the first to fill the cap. How's that for incentive?

Happy 2018, community! Let's kick a bunch of ass this year!
