Vanguard: Chapter 0
In 2016, Vanguard debuted and became an on-going growth of success in providing SoCal with a new event to compete in. Aimed at drawing in new players to break the ice with seasoned players & competition, Vanguard returns on March 4 to level up the local SoCal communities.
The first Vanguard will be the precursor to the full-fledged series starting in April, in which details are currently being finalized. We cannot say much at this time but when we reveal what you will be playing for (besides regional bragging rights and prizes), you will be hyped.
While Street Fighter V will remain the primary game for Vanguard, we are looking at adding a couple of more games as a test run for future Vanguard events. We are happy to announce that we will be having Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- and Super Street Fighter II Turbo at Vanguard. Our friends at ST Revival will be helping us with ST at the event.
Vanguard: Chapter 0 will be hosted at PlayLIVE Nation in Fullerton, CA, located at 581 N Commonwealth Ave, Fullerton, CA 92831, USA
Parking is conveniently located in the same building as PlayLIVE Nation and can be accessed through the Commonwealth entrance, between 85C Bakery and WaBa Grill. When you exit the parking structure, mention that you are with PlayLIVE Nation and you won't have to pay for parking!

Read some history about Level Up
Please read this great article by Craig Alphonse: https://www.redbull.com/us/en/esports/stories/1331797866823/level-up-productions-roots-in-the-fgc
Kinda late to the party, but recently had the chance to watch this. Unfortunately, I don't know the players by their names (forgive me) but any match with the Hilda player & the Yuzuriha player were a joy to watch. Their matches in general were always tactful (certainly the Yuzu ones), so I actually found myself rooting for both players (but mostly Yuzu haha).
It goes without saying that some of the other matches were equally great. In particular the Nanase player vs the Vatista match. A lot of respect going on there!
Blue & Red Waldstein man fell short.
Wish there were more Mika players!
...But I still have trouble appreciating Hilda as a character though. She`s incredibly 50/50 with her moves, as the player has displayed, & also has access to gimmick wakeups. Mind you, it seemed like some people didn`t quite know how to deal with it, & seeing him skillfully pull off everything still put a smile on my face ohohoho-
Hey, thanks for sharing man. Definitely some good matches in here, if anybody else is curious.
Alright back to Nioh!
