Official BlazBlue Nationals now highest-paid tourney in Japan

The announcement on the yesterday evening revealed that Blue Revo, the BlazBlue Official National Tournament, this year on March 24 has one million yen prize money for the winner. This means Blue Revo will become the new highest-paid fighting game tournament in Japan, overthowing TOPANGA League.

Prize list
1st place - 1,000,000 yen and "Blue Revo Ruler" ingame title.
2nd place - 300,000 yen and "Blue Revo Finalist" ingame title.
3rd place - 100,000 yen and "Blue Revo Best 4" ingame title.

However, Blue Revo is a 3 on 3 tournament, the money will be split between members. The prize-winners will also have to join Arc System Works's future activities. And if you only count player-organized tournaments, TOPANGA League is still No.1.

This news is good for Japanese players, but bad for Capcom's image. Capcom is well-known for not giving any prize money. In the latest official national tournament, the best prize was certificates, trophies, ingame titles, and 17,000 yen arcade sticks.

As expected, we made a list for you to compare.
  1. Blue Revo (team, 2012) - 1,000,000 yen
  2. TOPANGA League (single, 2012) - 555,555 yen (related post)
  3. GODSGARDEN Online #2 (single, 2010) - 500,000 yen
  4. GODSGARDEN #4 (single, 2011) - 250,000 yen
  5. GODSGARDEN #3 (single, 2011) - 200,000 yen
  6. GODSGARDEN #5 (single, 2012) - 100,000 yen
  7. Official Tekken 6 tournament Japan Round (single, 2010) - 100,000 yen
  8. GODSGARDEN Classic (single, 2011) - 50,000 yen
  9. LG Cup SF4HD Japan qualifier (single 2012) - $600 (50,000 yen)
  10. Nippon e-sports Agency's Soulcalibur V tournament (single, 2012) - 50,000 yen
Tougeki did not disclose the details about prizes, but it is expected to be around the bottom of this list.
