What's the time zone?

Edit: just saw it. Central Time
So if its 9est its 8 cst where the tourney is. Cool. That means for me itll be 11est for both the Power rangers and TVC tournaments if they stream pools and not just top stuff. I'm hunting down which streams they'll be on now. I'll post both when I find em.

BTW this marks the FIRST PRO TOUR TOURNAMENT FOR POWER RANGERS BATTLE FOR THE GRID! This BFTG Frosty Faustings tourney kicks off the official season!

BTW TVC has $2400 in cash prizes as well as this ridiculous PTX body pillow as a prize.
Here's the hilarious trailer they did announcing prizes and that KBEAST would be back.

I read on twitter there's supposed to be a granblue versus tournament there too today? Or is that at another place?
No that should be at Frosty. They have demo stations up. No clue on time or channels though. Not sure. Some of these tournaments only get top 8 streamed and there are many streams that are setup by the communities that aren't on the flyer. Been doin some twitter diggin to find links today. Its one of those tournaments that hosts EVERYTHING so there are just so many official and side tournies its hard to keep em all straight. Largely cause the side tourney communities simply aren't organized enough to have all the info in time for Frosty to post so they gotta sorta put it out there themselves as a consequence.

your times don’t make sense. If it’s 5 central it would be 6 est....
My bad you are right. Sorry its early for me. I will correct that here and on twitter. Looks like theyll be streaming top 8 at that link. I'm talking to see if any secondary pools streams will be up. Still trying to find BFTG streams and if its also going to only stream top 8 at that end due to limited setups or something.

BBTAG is up right now.
(posted 1-18-20 noon est)

Holy fuck at Shenanigans XX using Adachi and Susano O to get Full Screen half life damage on folks with projectile loops in the opening seconds. Dude got a nasty team with lots of tech.

EDIT:Oh my god this Tager/Waldstein player has the best name for commentators to shout in hype. #Follow Your Dreams.
Hearing them shout FOLLOW YOUR DREEEEEEEEEEEEAMS! during a clutch win is amazing lol

Frosty Faustings update for Power Rangers BFTG and its first Pro League Tourney!

Pools will be at 2pm est
Followed by Top 3 at this channel later


BTW one of those streams is currently streaming Touhou 12:3 Hisoutensokyo and its amazing. Its an entirely different kind of fighter that has the mechanic of when dashing you are projectile immune called bullet grazing. Since the cast is touhou they all have bullethell tools to try and whittle you away with so you try to move constantly. However you gotta stop moving to shoot or do melee and melee damage is where its at so its a very fast back and forth game. Plus theres weather effects that buff and change the properties of certain tools players have and the weather changes all the time. Players build decks and use those to change the weather to force advantage in their favor so movement and tactics can change in seconds from run n gun to rushdown to throw fishing. Its nuts.

Give it a go and then after stay tuned for Pools in Power Rangers Battle for the Grid!

Woo, Lost Soul wins, and with the superior Elphelt design too.

They already did the same with Ram, so pretty sure they will. Capcom pulled the same crap with Menat in SFV.
