    As my first live FGC event I didn't really know what to expect, I saw all the crowds on social media yesterday and expected it to be teeming with people when I walked in but it was surprisingly quiet. I walked around confused trying to get my bearings for the first half hour and was a little starstruck to see all the IJ2 Pro's casually hanging out playing matches on the landing. After IJ2 finished I came out to see JDCR casually playing sets of T7 too, so damn cool.

    I worked out which areas were which after a while, but didn't find the Smash/Dragonball FighterZ area until much later, I also thought the auditorium was closed initially as it had a velvet rope over it (and you don't ever mess with a velvet rope) but soon enough it opened and I relaxed into the nice comfy chair's of the IMAX theatre.

    It was a really cool environment, super comfy chairs, drink holders and a stupidly large screen, what more can you ask for? Stayed here for the next 6 hours with only one loo break inbetween SFV and IJ2, only watched a few of the Tekken 7 matches before leaving a little early to get some grub before my train home.

    I didn't know the etiquette with the casuals at all, didn't want to barge in so didn't end up playing anything and just watching, probably my only disappointment of the day. I thought folks would play one game/set and then move on like at EGX/Gamescom etc. But it seemed folks were just playing a lot of games with friends etc. and staying there so I didn't get an opportunity to play MVCI and Dragonball, both looked excellent though.

    Overall I really enjoyed it, I think if IJ2 hadn't been there I would've been a little disappointed as (as much as I like watching SFV and Tekken 7) I don't play them much in the former's case and not at all for the latter whereas I know all the personalities and the 'scene' more watching IJ2 and know all the inputs etc. the players are using when I'm watching them. I'm a little biased but I definitely think IJ2 had the most ooo's and ahh's from the crowd, there were some great matches in there.
