GB Persona 4 Arena Team Tournament #2

#1 Edited by gravitypenguin (64 posts) -

The Giant Bomb Persona 4 Arena Team Tournament returns. This is a 2v2 teams side tournament for the main event run by FluxWaveZ here.

How's a 2v2 team tournament work?

It's pretty simple. The first players of each team have a match. The second match is between the winner and the second player of the other team. If the first player wins again that player's team is victorious. Otherwise the second player from both teams play the final match to determine the victor.

For clarity I'm calling the above one "team match" a round of the tournament will be 2/3 team matches.

Rules:

  • Players must enter in teams of two.
  • The tournament will be played in a single elimination bracket. When you're out, you're out.
  • If a team's other member is unavailable during the event the remaining member may play alone, but can't play on behalf of their teammate (no second chances).
  • Matches will be best 2 out of 3 rounds with 99 seconds each round. Winner will be best 2 out of 3 team matches.
  • Players can choose their characters both A) At the start of a tournament round B) During the same tournament round after a match loss.
  • Team Order: Each team must choose their team order at the start of each tournament round. Team order may not be changed while the tournament round is in progress.
  • If a player drops during a round, it is up to the opponent to decide if he agrees to do a rematch or not.
  • THIS IS A PS3 ONLY EVENT.

Prizes:

We shall see...

I'm in for this one too, I just need a partner. I'm willing to team up with anyone :)

I'm in, too. Contacted Soki to see if he wants to partner up again, if not I'll need to get a new partner.

Sure, I'll get in this again. Had fun in the previous tourney, even though my team got knocked out in the first round. Willing to partner with anyone.

@aznjon12: Are you sure that's a good idea for a team name Jon?

#8 Posted by aznjon12 (188 posts) -

@Grim_2_: I have yet to hear a better name.

#9 Posted by Grim_2_ (50 posts) -

@aznjon12: Team That Beat Flux it is then.

@Grim_2_: Now we have a standard to keep though or we'll look like assholes.

Since the bracket will probably be smaller for the team tournament, what's the likelihood that this'll be a Sunday-only thing? I have to attend a wedding on Saturday and can't participate in the singles tournament, but I'd love to shake off some rust with a tournament of some kind.

I'll probably try and split it between days if we have 5+ teams signed up. Otherwise Sunday only is fine.

Gp! With all the new names, I think we need one too!! Something cocky, brass, respectable, and salty. Team Let "Team that beat Flux" do all the Work then win with a salty runback! Rolls right off the tongue!

Hey guys I know some of you who haven't signed up want to particiapte (flux, others) so find someone in the thread or on irc and sign up! I'll keep signups open as late as possible.

If we have 5+ teams we'll start Saturday, otherwise all matches will be Sunday.
