The 5th season of AniClash, the premier online anime fighter tournament series, will conclude with what guarantees to be our biggest and best event yet: AniClash Prime 2! Going down this July 8th and 9th, this multi-stream netplay major will see classic AniClash competitors and newcomer alike vie tooth and nail for the series' biggest prize prize pool to date! For the uninitiated, here is a quick rundown of the baseline information that all those interested in competing in this event need to know:
Q: What is AniClash Prime 2?
AniClash Prime 2 is an online BlazBlue: Central Fiction tournament being held July 8th - July 9th, 2017, the sequel to last year's smash hit AniClash Prime. The tournament will be held through the Playstation Network, meaning that only players in possession of a Playstation 3 or Playstation 4 copy of BlazBlue: Central Fiction are eligible to enter.
Registration and information regarding such can be found on this page of the tournament's Official Website. Registrants will be manually placed into the participant list upon review of their form. As is listed on the registration page, we currently have an entrant cap of 48 players in place, and with 23 of those slots being filled at the time of writing, it's highly recommended that all interested parties register as soon as possible. The tournament is free to enter.
UPDATE: The entrant cap has been expanded to 54 players and has already been maxed out! Register now to be placed on a waiting list and be on stream at 5PM EST on Saturday, July 8th to claim the bracket spot of any players who are not present!
Q: Where do I attend the event?
The event will take place over the course of 2 separate days--July 8th beginning at 6PM EST and July 9th beginning at 7PM EST--streamed across both AniClash's Official Twitch Channel and our secondary stream provided by prominent Anime FGC streamer Koefficient. Make sure to follow both channels to stay up to date with all the latest updates with the event!
Q: What are the payouts for AniClash Prime?
At present the tournament will be boasting a cash prize of a whopping $525 total to be handed out to the tournament's top placers. The payouts for top placers can be found on this page of the tournament's official website!
Q: Is this tournament region locked?
Yes. Only North American players will be allowed entry. Apologies to our international players, but with a siazble cash prize on the line we must take extra measures to ensure matches are as lagless as possible. This page on the tournament's website also details tips and suggestions we recommend in your efforts to minimize lag in your matches, as well as our policies on disconnects and other such occurrences.
Q: The website mentions something about a Day 0 event happening on July 7th?
The official AniClash Prime 2 tournament doesn't begin until July 8th, indeed, but on July 7th--in preparation for the true event--we'll be holding an entire day of both casual and competitive BBCF programming for our community members and other interested parties to take part in. Participation in our Day 0 events is not at all required or directly tied to the actual Prime 2 tournament itself, but--if interested--information on Day 0 can be found here.
Q: I have additional questions or comments regarding the tournament!
Feel free to leave a comment or question on the designated section of the Official Website; we'll get back to you as soon as possible. You can additionally contact us on our Twitter, join our community and ask around on our Discord server, or ask away during our regular numbered AniClash tournament streams, taking place nearly every Friday at 8PM EST on our Official Twitch Channel.
Hope to see you in the Prime 2 bracket soon!
