Sign ups for this week (July 14 - 22) are closed.
This will be the last weekly format for +R as I will be heading up the UNiEL weekly. +R will move to a monthly format.
This week's bracket can be found here.
Guilty Gear Tutorials
+R Update is here!
The free update is finally here in North America! If you already own Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus it will now automatically download the +R update. All you have to do is go into options and change the version to +R to play it.
I'm putting together an ongoing weekly tournament for GGxxAC+R on the PS3.
This will be my first time running something like this so rules are subject to change for future weekly tournaments depending on feedback.
The entire tournament will take place over the period of one week so match times can be flexible. The tournament will be broken up into two parts
Casuals: Guilty Tuesdays
I will designate an hour or two every Tuesday night for all of those who want to get some casual games in. All interested can meet up online through Skype or my PSN Chat Group to talk and get games in.
Double Elimination Tournament. Wednesday - Wednesday
- Best 2 out of 3 rounds.
- Winner will be best 2 out of 3 matches.
- Grand Finals will be best 3 out of 5 matches, with the player coming from losers bracket having to win two 3 out of 5 sets. One to reset the bracket and another to win the tournament.
- A player that loses a match is allowed to switch characters, however a player who wins must choose the same character as his/her previous match.
- If a player drops during a round, it is up to the opponent to decide if he/she agrees to do a rematch or not.
- Boss Characters (Kliff and Justice) have been balanced in +R and are allowed.
- Any non standard version of characters are banned.
I will randomly seed the brackets for the tournament on Challonge. Please make a free account if you do not have one already and make sure to leave your username for Challonge in your post so I can add you to the tournament when the time comes. In order to keep things moving I am letting the players report on their match outcomes on Challonge. I don't see a problem with this now and hope one doesn't present itself in the future.
In an ideal world net play would always work at 100% with no drops or lag issues. Unfortunately this is not the case. I highly recommend you play a few casual sets against your opponent before playing a real match. Especially if you have never played them before as not all connections are made equal and not all play well together. In my experience with GG netplay I have played matches from buttery smooth to terrible. One thing I have noticed is that some people I had a bad connection with at first seemed to get better after a few matches. I recommend you play a few casual sets but this is not mandatory. I know people may be busy and not have time to play a first to ten set, however one rule is tournament legal.
The Ability to Request One Warm Up Match.
If you or your opponent agree to play out your tournament match right away that's fine. However if you want to play the match and your opponent requests a warm up match you must honour it. It must be 2 out of 3 rounds but this is the only rule that applies. Use whatever character you want or if you want to act as an online training dummy that's your prerogative.
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus does not support lobby play or mics. This weekly is as much about growing as players and helping one another out as it is about competing. I have made a Guilty Gear group on Skype where people can meet up, set up matches and talk strategies. Mics are not required as you can still use text chat in the group. Add me on Skype my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know you are from this forum.
I would love to put up an edited video of these weekly tournaments but with GG not having any kind of built in replay feature it's not a feasible goal. However if you have the means to record your own matches (I'll even take ghetto handy cam footage;) and hook me up with it so I can put something together that would be awesome!
Raffle winner for week 12-13 was Spikes! Congratulations!
