One person... that's all we had in the Discord just over a year ago. Today, FightRise is over 500 members strong and has achieved some wild milestones for a brand new Street Fighter 6 community. From building fighters up from Rookie ranks to Masters, colliding two nations against each other in an Urge to Fight brawl, hosting over twenty One Fight Stand community events that boosted skill and morale, to having some of the greatest legends in the FGC grace our Auditorium... we've been fortunate to serve our FightRise community. And, is barely a drop in the bucket of all the milestones and community events we really put in the less than a year that Street Fighter 6 has been released. That's why this next milestone is so special. Not only did this milestone start as mere fleeting conversation, but it all happened faster than we could have imagined. And much of that is thanks to our amazing FightRise community. All of you FightRisers make every day being a part of this community so phenomenal. And, I am so glad we get to share this next one with you... This week, FightRise is proud to officially announce, we have signed and our sponsoring our first competitive fighter who is set to compete at CEO 2024... He was a man with a simple dream as he has visions of being one of the finalists to walk out for Top 8 at CEO. And, if you have seen his Marisa (or have been on the other side of the fighting stage), you understand why we believe in him and are excited to cheer him on every step of the way... So, how did all this come to be? Well, let me highlight a few things for you if you'd be so kind to stay while and listen.
One of the questions we get a lot is... "Are these One Fight Stands good for me to join?" The answer is an easy "YES!" Our One Fight Stand events are bi-weekly round robins that have been responsible from helping take some of our community members from the Rookie ranks all the way to Master. That's why celebrating 21 One Fight Stand events so far is such a fantastic milestone. And the FightRise Community has been fortunate to celebrate so many milestones in the less than a year that Street Fighter 6 has been released. So, of course, this twenty first One Fight Stand event was a fantastic one with just about 40 in attendance on a Tuesday night! Not bad... In this post I want to do a few things: 1) acknowledge our winners, 2) mention briefly another exciting milestone, and 3) break down the round robins themselves. If you're a regular at One Fight Stand, this may be a fantastic post to share with those who want to know more about what they're getting into! And take a look at all you fantastic regulars here posing like the fantastic peoples you are in front of Rathian:
We got winners! One Fight Stand #19 just wrapped up and, with 48 players competing, this was a special one... Every quarter we like to organize a Double Elimination Bracket and an 0-2 Bracket to replace the ol' Round Robin night. From the player perspective, they get some great practice in a tournament format and we dish out some prizes. Plus, on the Tournament Organizer side, we test our efficiency in making sure our members have a smooth, speedy event. I mean... keeping the event to about an hour and a half on a Tuesday night? Yes...please...
If you're looking to level up in Street Fighter, I can't stress enough how important and helpful it is to have a community at your side. That's why FightRise is an all-inclusive community where newer players are welcomed and our master rank players are always willing to share, help, train, and play! These One Fight Stand events alone have taken some of our players who have never touched a fighting game into developing their game plan and climbing to Master rank. Plus they're fun as you can see they're run seamlessly with an automated system in Battle Hub (so come dressed to impressed!).
