  1. >Qualification for the Xrd 3v3 ArcRevo tournament on August 15th in Japan!**

    Is Blazblue not going to be a qualifier for ArcRevo?

  2. Will fix this. Thanks!

  3. Hey st1ckbug, I just wanted to get some clarification so I won’t wind up messing something up. Above, (the rules section) it says that you need a valid passport or proof of /process of applying to enter/. On the announcement page it says you need passport or /proof of passport/ to be able to enter. This is my first time getting a passport so I’m not sure if process of applying and proof of passport are supposedly the same thing. But I wanted to check if the agency gives you a confirmation or a receipt of application that you’re applying, is that completely OK to bring for tournament to enter with. Thanks

  4. We need proof that you’re either getting your passport or have your passport.
