The Giant Bomb Persona 4 Arena Team Tournament is here. 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.
- 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.
- Since I neglected to mention it in the thread title THIS IS A PS3 ONLY EVENT.
