Return to the fight Tournament

#1 Edited by Bloo561 (110 posts) -

@

To celebrate the announcement of the sequel/update of persona 4 arena (persona 4 arena:climax) I decided to do a tourney to welcome new players and bring back old. The tourney will take place next month with a date later to be decided. I have also decided to do two different tournaments for the new different players: Newcomers and Players. Newcomers are players who are either a. Barely ever played b. Not much onlind experience c. Too rusty to play at max lecel. While players are people who feel confident in their ability.This is too not have new players get destroyed by older players and have a chance to win. Finally, this is only for PS3 users. sorry :(

Rules:The tournament will be played in a double elimination format, so players will need to lose a match twice to be eliminated.Matches will be best 2 out of 3 rounds for 99 seconds each round. Winner will be best 2 out of 3 matches.Semi-finals (Losers and Winners bracket) and finals will be best 2 out of 3 rounds for 99 seconds each round. Winner will be best 3 out of 5 matches.A player that loses a match is allowed to switch characters, however a player who wins must choose the same character as his previous match.How to sign upTo sign up reply in this thread saying you want to enter post:

I suppose I'm down, even though I've never played against a human opponent before. Although I don't know when I'll get time to practice. I'll be working everyday until the Sunday before GTAV day.

Having been forced to watch all the release-window tournaments pass me by with the EU version nowhere in sight, I suppose this is the best opportunity I'll have to go against some people from Giant Bomb before that DLC/expansion thing comes out. I should warn you, however: if it seems like I'm spamming Maziodyne as Elizabeth don't take it personally, I'm just trying and failing to pull off Mind Charge. It's the new/rusty tier for me, I think.

How good are you expecting the "Rusty" and "Pro" players to be? Not sure which category I fall under.

Edit: I think with the new classifications I definitely fall under the "Player" category.

I just bought this game like 2 months ago, and had some fun with it. I did pretty good playing this game against friends so I'll see if I stand a chance against against some of you guys.

EDIT: Just go ahead and put me as a "newcomer" since I don't have a ton of skill.

Hmm that could give trouble k i change it to three brackets beginner, intermediate, pro to make it easier

What International 7 player Rugby tournaments do is have all skill levels play each other. Then they determine where you stand based on your round robin pool record and then have 3 different playoffs for your tier of skill. I think that could work here, especially if numbers are low.

#9 Posted by Zeik (2434 posts) -

Yeah, you probably shouldn't split it up too much, because I doubt there's going to be that many people that will participate. Honestly, I don't even know if you'll get enough people to make a proper "pro" tournament. It seems most people around here are pretty casual.

Don't get all offended, I wasn't saying everyone was.

I'm not offended. I'm just wondering how you came to the conclusion the most people around here who play the game are casual.

#13 Edited by Bloo561 (110 posts) -

Okay fine then two brackets: Newcomers and Players.

Based on the comments from everyone around here and the general lack of activity. Maybe I'm totally wrong and the hardcore players just haven't shown up yet, but it seems just about everyone who has responded so far at the very least haven't played in quite awhile.

I guess I can only speak for the time when I organized multiple Persona 4 Arena tournaments, but I really wouldn't describe most players as being casual players back then. I guess things might have changed with a new audience now, though.

To be fair, I only use "casual" in opposition of being a "pro". I'm sure there's at least several that would fall under the intermediate tier, if included. (Myself included, probably.)

#20 Edited by kombee (3 posts) -

Hey I just wanted to ask, has the tourney already passed? based on your last post it seems so, however if it hasn't I'd very much like to participate. I'd also recommend advertising on other boards if you're looking for more players: Dustloop, Gamefaqs and MayonakaMidnight Forums.

Cool. You're saying next week? Could you maybe write down the date and time you're thinking of starting the tourney? That'd help a lot, and I'll try and post in some of the other sites if there's enough time.

If you're still taking people for this I'm down.

gravitypenguin (gb/psn)

Region: US, west coast

Level: not-rusty

#32 Posted by TheFakePsychic (194 posts) -

Okay just a heads up: Saying #GB_P4A on IRC means literally nothing. You need to specify that the room that gets used is on the quakenet server. So if you use Chatzilla (like me), you need to say:

/server quakenet

/join #GB_P4A

as two separate statements. Check your own IRC client to figure out what the commands are. But I bet they're fairly similar (although maybe you will have to say "/server quakenet.net" and not just quakenet.)

Also: if Grav gets in, then:

TheFakePsychic (gb/psn)

Region: US, East Coast

Level: Also not-rusty.
