If you're wondering what our stance on Omega Rugal is for #TXS22 for our #KOFXV tournament, say less:

👇 Omega Rugal is NOT allowed 👇

This is due to the two-week grace period we usually give for new character DLC - we just felt the opportunity to use a classic KOF meme was too good here.

Shout-outs to @neoak for the KOFXV update to a beloved meme.

What's that, more neat info?

This time it's a snippet of the 2022 badge design. Customized with YOUR gamertag?

Yes please.

Why wouldn't you do it - all the cool kids have, and it's a nice keepsake since we all keep our badges at FGC majors.

Remember, you can add the customized badge to your existing registration at ANY time before registration ends on April 1st!
