It's all in good fun, so banning seems a bit excessive. Plus, getting to play some of the duders who have been in the big tourneys could be pretty awesome.
I truly hope I won't be barred from participating simply because I've had the chance to play before.
For anyone unfamiliar, I placed 1st at CEO and 5th at EVO.
People have stated that after a day of having the game in your hands you'll have caught up with tournament placers. I disagree with this. I believe after simply a few HOURS of playing you'll be at the level people were playing at in UFTG, CEO and EVO.
If it makes everyone a little more comfortable I simply want to compete to have a chance to play the best players. I have no qualms whatsoever about passing any prizes I may receive down to the next placement should I place high enough to receive anything.
Now that I think about it, I already have one of McCarron's amazing Divekick hats, so I'm willing to pass that on to second place should I win.
Honestly G, I just want to face you so I could say to my next opponent "Suffer like G did!" but that's a really silly reason.
I look forward to the match! If you do defeat me, hopefully you go on to Grand Finals so you can say it in front of everyone to your opponent!
I'm not into the idea of banning anyone who wants to participate, but it's comforting that most people agree with that. Again, since it's up to the prize givers' discretion concerning who's eligible or not to win, I'm not bothered by people who would just want to get prizes and it's all just for fun.
@methodman008: Though it is weird to see Keits comment on this community tournament directly, heh.
And as I posted that, he posts above.
My only prize stipulation is I won't allow @g_ to win another hat, that jerk has one already! :P In that case my hat prize goes to second place.
EDIT: HAH just noticed he already said that above, see my instincts were correct he'd defer that prize.
I don't know what the deal is with banning people, but I really don't think you need to. The tournament takes place 3 days after the games release. People who have never played with have plenty of time to get to the same level as the pros. That being said you should know that I did get 5th place at NCR.
Also I messed up my PSN account name. It's East_Gold. I forgot the underscore.
I think banning people who have played or placed in Divekick pre-release is the wrong move.You can learn by watching! Adam Heart (@TheKeits)
Keits says no one should be banned, which is pretty damn cool the creator of the game commented on our stupid tournament.. And I agree with his point, you can totally learn all you need to about divekick from watching.
Also, yeah, add me to the tournament! :D MethodMan008
Aw man, I hope people didn't misinterpret my post thinking I suggested we ban anyone :(. All I meant to say was to let each person who is providing a prize in the raffle decide if they will allow pre-release players who did well at other tournaments access to the raffle. I still think they have every reason and right to compete and I wouldn't have it any other way. Divekick for everyone I say!
Since my prizes were meant to be steam giveaways on our local steam giveaway group, I'd rather those games go to members of the site who've been around at least a little while. I can't speak for the others but I bet no one else will give much of a care. All the love to anyone who signed up on recently to get in on this tournament, that's great! It's kinda cool actually because now I might have the chance to fight against some of the EVO players which is super exciting.
So, the Steam version is day and date with the PS3 one (Aug 20th), so I will be getting that version instead. Any way to remove me from this tournament and maybe start a Steam one?
I'll remove you from the list, but I won't be able to host both a PS3/Vita and Steam tournament at the same time.
Fuck you, Lang.
However, there are still ways around that issue. It'd be quite simple to capture and re-stream people's individual Twitch feeds, with a delicious layer of Skype over the top of it so people would be able to commentate/read donations out/etc.
I need people to say if they can/want to do this thing. I'll repeat my initial statement again here in case duders didn't see:
Could I stream this tourney? Maybe do a sick ass combo with Child's Play or something? Could/would people be able to stream their video feeds to me/is there a spectator mode available/are there any sick ass commentators who could talk over the video?
I built and did the technical shit for the 60 hours of Endurance Running that six duders (myself included) took part in a few weeks back, for charity.
Let me know.
@fattony12000: I'm all cool for you doing something with Child's Play and everything but without a spectators mode, you won't be streaming that long. Even FluxWaveZ's P4A tournament had a lot of waiting for opponents.
I'll be recording my matches with FRAPS so it can be enjoyed later.
Unless you already have the setup to stream from a PS3 out with capture gear and probably PS3 component cables, then someone like me can't stream or even record their matches on a PS3. PC is a whole lot easier because you can just point OBS/Xsplit and/or FRAPS at it and the work is done. If people can somehow get at PS3 matches that would be great.
I'M BACK BABY! first of all for those who don't know i used to be on the persona 4 arena forums until one day i lost my game i got another one and then i give one to a friend and never got it back...BUT NOW I GOT DIGITAL so anybody that wanna play p4a psn:bloo561 but anyways flux sign me up!

Of course, it'd be best if everyone did their matches as soon as possible so that people wouldn't have to wait too long for their matches and it would make the whole process simpler.
