DojoSports launches 5v5 fighting game season, starts this Sunday - SSF4 AE v2012, TTT2 and UMvC3 DojoSports will begin running their new 5v5 fighting game season every Sunday for the next three months beginning on January 6. The games being played include Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Each game will be played in round robin format and specific match settings will be applied based on which game is being played. Below are the official settings for each title that will be used throughout the season.

• SSF4 AE v2012 = 1 game (2/3 rounds)
• UMvC3 = 2/3 Games
• TTT2 = 1 game (3/5 rounds)

Teams can consist of up to 10 players and on gameday the team captain will choose which 5 members will be playing. The minimum amount of team members for a team eligible to join the league is 5.

The team entry fee for this season is $500 flat; even if your team has the maximum amount of players on it, the price will remain the same. The payment deadline will be some time in February and the specific deadline is still to be announced.

Press Release


Happy New Year FGC;

This is Jason Cole, (aka AFROCOLE!) Over a year and a half ago, DojoSports launched a beta phase 5v5 team-based league via regional collaboration. During a three-month timespan, the League consisted of 4 regions, divided into 8 distinct teams featuring some of the nation's top fighting game talent.

Although a few technical issues came about with the logistical process, the most important highlight gained from its development was that it demonstrated our ability to unite and synchronize our efforts. Tournament organizers, streamers and other influential parties from East to West helped to present the first e-sports broadcast production dedicated to professional league-based expos.

This was the first move for our community to form a sort of collective of individuals and resources as well as changing the mindset of our players to a sports team mentality.

First and foremost, I am blessed and very thankful to Shelton (Big SHEL!) at FightersFury.net for the initial interview at NEC XI and getting me to come out with the inaugural announcement. I'd also like to thank Jon of Eventhubs.com, for his prompt and genuine support, ultimately creating a viral effect throughout the scene. If it wasn't for these two individuals, I don't think I would have maintained the confidence to move forward with this project.

The FGC responded to that video in a way that moved me and showed me what our community truly desires: ascending to establish a professional team-based e-sports format. It is thanks to all of your responses and support that kept me inspired from the start and kept me believing in the vision. And with that being said, I am pleased to make a special announcement:

I am SO proud to finally announce the Official launch of DojoSports 5v5 League for 2013!!!!!! DojoSports will be starting with the Northwest region, beginning on Jan 6th, bringing you a new fighting game weekly broadcast every Sunday afternoon! We are also starting with the following three marquee titles:

• Super Street Fighter 4 arcade Edition 2012
• Tekken Tournament Tag 2
• and of course, the global favorite: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3!!!!!!!!

You can find more information about the League Breakdown, including a directory of who’s actively involved, how to get involved, as well as full scheduling officially available at www.dojosports.com. We now recognize the importance that social networks and invite you to also follow us on Twitter at @DojoSportsNEWS. Look forward to us delivering FREE archived videos of every match via our official Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/dojosportstv.

I am really looking forward to bringing more regions into the fray and showing how our local community scenes can survive through this new collaboration and collective of community leaders, TO’s, Players, Streamers and Stream Monsters =D

The DojoSports Mission Statement:

"To develop an exceptional standard for competitive e-sports broadcasting through professionalism, team development and region-based collaboration."

Thank you!

Would be a good idea to put the locations for people who don't see or click the Dojosports link:

The worst part about fgc leagues/events is it's so coastal/communal.

Great concept. I look forward to seeing it improved for those in more "remote (not deserted just away from the main stream fgc)" locations.

Nice idea, too bad it's the same 2-3 games every other tournament is running.
