SSFIV 360 league and tournament 2

Postby theideal » 10 Sep 2010, 03:57

LEAGUE

Here's the league details.
I'll add a match-up table and league table once we get a few matches done.
If you either don't see yourself on the list and want in, or if you're on the list but can't be arsed then PM ME and let me know either way. A league makes it easier to drop you in as long as you make a decent attempt to play all your games.

RULES
- Play everyone once.
- 99 second rounds.
- Best of three rounds for the game.
- Each match is FIVE games. Play them all.
- The winner of each game must stick with their character, though can switch Ultra if desired.
- The loser of each game can change character.
- Decide between you who hosts, it makes no difference to the match.
- One person post the result of each match in this thread in the format - PLAYER A 4 - 1 PLAYER B - Make sure it's bold and formatted EXACTLY like that please.

I think that's about it. A tie for the top will be decided on game difference. If that's still a big, freakish tie then we'll have a play-off.

Let's get it on! I'll spread the word about this new one. Let's get it in motion & moving along. The last thread was left to stagnate & all motivation was lost.

No... I am curious about Monkey's Blanka skills, but seeing as I haven't bought the game and he has had loads more practise and I've read what you lot are like, I will protect my pathetic and small e-penis.

Monkey is good with Blanka. But who cares. Just borrow the game off somebody and get slaughtered like me.

I don't wanna be the worst person in it... where's SD Downs? Seem to remember beating him :D

Now it is time for the student to become the teacher... [and when that fails] If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine [awesome I win if I win and if I lose]

I'm up for it, what sort of format we thinking of? I propose parallel "choosing your own character" and "random character selection" events. Or possibly instead of "random" one where you choose what character you opponent has to use... :P

Or even set characters for everyone... eg the first round everyone plays as Ken Vs Ryu best of 3 then Ryu Vs Ken best of 3, then the next round choose 2 other character... I'm full of ideas me.

JedHawk - JedHawk

If there is a random characters tournament, then I recommend that you must lose twice before knocked out. In other words, the following format could be used (as seen in the official tournaments):

Tournaments winners of each round progress to the next and remain in the winners bracket.
Anyone losing enters the losers bracket, and in that, is a sub-tournament.
Lose again while in the losers' bracket and you're out.

At the end, the winner of the losers' bracket faces the winner of the winners' bracket for the title. BUT... remember that the winners bracket winner still has the advantage as he can only lose if he loses twice.

SO if the winner of the losers' bracket takes the first match in the final, then they play again one more time as a decider, as they are now even.

I added a poll for format.

We could do with another player (Shiki...?) for tournament style or if it goes above 8 we'd need 16, though we could get away with a few less if we used byes.
Once we've got the format sorted I'll change up the poll to see whether it should be single character, loser can change (winner can change Ultra but must stick with same character), or just change when you want... Or you could just post your preference in here to save time :D

I'm happy to sort a parallel Random tourney too if that's what peeps want. Let me know your preferences for format for that too in a post here.

NOT random please. I don't mind losing, but not because I got Makato twice in a row.

What's the point in a tournament unless you're going to use your strongest characters? We can all meet up in a lobby and do friendly random matches any day of the week.

I'm not competitive at all. :shock:

Yeah, maybe random isn't such a good idea. As for the layout of the championship, I'm not too fussed. A league could be interesting, as long as everyone was to stay the course.

How about League - Best of three rounds - Best of three games - Play all three games even if winner is decided in two - Locked to single character?

Sounds good to me, apart from the locked single character. I think it's good to get the choice of picking if you lost the previous game, winner has to keep the same character.

Tourney format we had last time was good.

As for character selection, just let people pick whoever they want. Like ledickolas said, what's the point in trying to compete with a charcter you've barely practiced with. With randoms the whole thing becomes a lottery.
