    Somewhat unsurprisingly, we're a little behind the ball with narrowing down choices for next week's event. That's okay though; we'll just push Saturday's planned first round vote to today, and move Sunday's final vote to tomorrow.

    Voting will take place in the #voting-booth channel at the FF Discord server.

    So, for the first round vote, everyone will pick up to 5 of their favorites from the list in #voting-booth's "Pinned Messages", ranked from first to last in order of preference. Voting will close at 2359 EDT (0359 UTC) tonight, with the final round to commence sometime tomorrow morning. We will then choose one from the five with the highest vote averages.

    If you are at all interested, please drop by and vote!

    FINAL ROUND VOTING:

    Final round voting will follow in a fashion similar to previous Player of the Month voting. That is to say, all voters will PM their vote for 1 single game amongst the 5 to be the game we play for Sunday's stream/giveaway event. The PM will be directed to the Fighting Fœnatics account. All members of this server are welcome to vote (regardless of whether or not they offered suggestions or participated in first round voting) with the exception of @Songhacker, who will only cast a tie-breaker vote in the event of a tie.

    The 5 games that made the cut for final selection are:

    Overwatch
    Rocket League
    Terraria
    Team Fortress 2
    100% Orange Juice!


    Voting has begun and officially ends at 2359 EDT (0359 UTC). Results will be announced ASAP, but prior to 1200 EDT on 5/9/2017 at the latest.

    As always, please drop by and vote!

    Hey all. So it hadn't occurred to me (though nobody else ever pointed it out) that tomorrow is Mother's Day...which I guess makes me a bit of an arse?

    That said, we're still planning on a 1400 EDT/1800 UTC start time to play Silly Free RedVSBlue Game together, so if you're not tooooo busy honoring the maternals, we'll be there.

    Don't forget about the $25 Steam game giveaway!

    Also, to maintain a bit of sub-forum topical relevance, we've recorded our first "example" training video (using Street Fighter V) and will be posting it in a bit. Similarly on-topic, the plan is to have our next stream be casual fightan. Tentative scheduling for that will be next weekend; I'm unsure as to whether we'll be doing special promotions yet.

    I've been looking forward to this for awhile now.
    Personally, I've been trying to delve into and discover ways to teach new gamers how to play fighting games without things feeling like a 1-sided beat-down or stealing away fun.
    As it stands, life is too busy for me to participate on a consistent schedule, but I'm very interested.

    With the beta now stampeding amongst qualified backers, activity is kicking up in (applicably-restricted sections of) our Discord.

    It sadly happened smack in the middle of my work week, so I'm personally a bit strapped for time admin-wise, but thankfully the other mods (all miles more capable than me) are stepping up to the plate. Despite keeping tabs on the action, however, we haven't announced our plans for non-streamed/recorded events, but rest assured they exist.

    Currently we're floating around a sort of "rep-your-character" casual team tourney next weekend. It'd be great if we're allowed to stream by then, but if not, we'll just keep people informed/updated during the course of such an event in our beta voice/text channels, as well as via visible online brackets. I'm also thinking of doing another random prize giveaway if we du zis.

    No exact plan yet on our next non-beta, all-inclusive event, but I'd like to make it 2D fighter related. Maybe some sort of 2D-fighter-roulette team tourney? Pick your team's rep once the randomizer picks the game? Dunno'. I'd want to balance these kinds of things out to be fun for the hardcore as well as for our beginners, so it'll need more development time.

    That's all for this quick update. I'll end with an open request to good Velvet players to keep figuring out combos and tactics, because I suck at it and sorta' rely on just executing on the discoveries of others...>.>

    Cool I think I found the right place. I've always been a fan of fighting games, but always been terrible at them (I did play a little SFII in arcades back in the day.) Lol with regards to fighting games, most of my childhood was spent getting bodied by my cousins who were way better at various fighting games on SNES (SFII, Mortal Kombat, KI, etc.) They would always completely destroy me, but not show me what I needed to do to get better.

    As a gamer, I've traditionally stuck to single player or co-op things; multiplayer competitive games have never been my forte. I would like to aim to change that.

    Currently have a bunch of friends who play various fighting games (not at like pro level or anything, but they're all pretty good. Would like to train up to their level.) I've mostly gotten excited about FGC stuff so far by watching, first just watching automated Mugen fights on Saltybet, and then in the last couple of years, I went with said friends to EVO a couple times, and that was hype. I actually finally took a major leap and picked myself up a decent fightstick (a Hori RAP V stick) and want to see if I can step up to actually playing instead of just watching =) I've been following TFH since back when it was Fighting is Magic. This game seems like the perfect one to get into for me since it's the intersection of fighting games (which I was already interested in) and the fact that I was already a brony =)

    Anyway, nice to meet everyone here, super hyped for TFH!

    Since the NDA has been lifted, we are planning on doing a stream to show off as many features currently in the beta. I would like to recommend non beta backers catch our stream as it will be hosted by @MPK who has some extensive hands on time with the beta.

    Catch the stream on twitch at today (16 September 2017) at 6 PM EST.



    I will update this post with the Youtube archive when it has been uploaded.

    I really enjoyed the commentary stream. Helped me to understand the game on a more technical level. I'd love to see more.
    I'm saying this since it was stated in the stream that y'all wanted some feebdack on whether the commentary style was enjoyable.

    Another casual stream with MPK doing commentary of people's matches is planned for 6 PM EST Friday 27 October 2017. So we need some volunteers for our host. If we don't get any volunteers he will just stream some matches.

    You can catch us on Twitch.

    I think song brought this up before like two years ago. Can we have this thread moved to another appropriate thread like maybe general discussion? I remember our dear leader saying that it was moved to fighting game discussion because at the time we were just mainly talking about fighting games in general. Now we have a more focused attention on TFH.

    Or maybe just make a brand new thread? To avoid the clutter of the old discussion about talk of other fighting games.

    Please advise.

    MPK will host another commentary stream tomorrow night at 6 PM EST (3 November 2017). We will need some volunteers during the stream and I would appreciate people to join in during the stream 10 minutes before the start at the earliest. We will meet in the game's pixel lobby.

    To ensure the maximum amount of matches I will outline some protocol to follow.
    - While MPK is watching a match, I (rich jammer) will ask players who would like to be on stream next.
    - When I find a match, I will inform MPK that you would like to be on stream.
    - He will walk up to you to spectate your next match and it is up to the player(s) I chose to initiate the match with each other.

    Even if I choose a player for the next match, it is up to MPK, the streamer, whether to spectate your fight or not. Please note he may not want to spectate your match if your ping is too high from his.

    Can I request something for the next stream?

    Every stream I've seen (not just the Foenatics) use Arizona's pixel lobby. I'm curious to see what Velvet's is like. It is in the beta, isn't it? I hope so, or this is comment is going to look seriously stupid.

    We only have access to the Arizona Map. We would have to have Cam change the map back to the Old/Buggy Velvet Map.

    The old Velvet map is exactly the same as you see in the old work stream videos. So if you are curious you can check those out.

    I think we still have access to the old Velvet map. Anyone can host it. There's a guide to host a pixel lobby somewhere on the site.
