" Alright updated the brackets and we have a full list!!!! Woo, Get Hype!!!  So while my comp makes the initial set list of match ups, if there are any sub ins, they will just simply take the place of whoever they replaced reguardless of the timezone and stuff they are in. My initial match up pairing is based off timezone purely to make the level lag as little as possible.
Did you do the pairings already? If so are they posted somewhere?
#53 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -
@baelrrogg: totally not dealing with any bracket making til the weekend at the very earliest, yes i got a computer program that helps me do this, but I haven't set the parameters for it yet. Just expect to fight the people that signed up, remember this is not an elimination tournament so there is no reason to worry about any certain match ups that could knock you out. 
#54 Edited by baelrrogg (126 posts) -
@StaticFalconar: No worries, I was just curious as to when we would know. I appreciate the effort of making all this.

@StaticFalconar:
Dude, I am out, ill be traveling for the next couple of months, please find someone to take my place.
#56 Posted by Ninjalaw (26 posts) -

I would like to join as a backup if it isn't too late to enter. I need to start entering every tourney I can. 
 
PSN: Ninjalaw 
EST

#57 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -
@copycatzen: no probs bro. Have fun travelling and you hope back when super comes out.  
 
@newmarcom: , you still want to sit on the sidelines and let ninjalaw take the newly opened spot, or do ou want in now? you get to pick since you technically signed up earlier. 
 
 
 
I know I said I would work on the brackets by now, but i swear this quarter all my midterms are staggered one right after another. I'll most likely work on it while the game is on this weekend or something.

No worries dude, there's no rush.
#59 Posted by newmarcom (296 posts) -
@StaticFalconar:  Ninjalaw can play the open spot. I've been hooked into TvC lately and been training like mad to perfect the wavedash glitch. But I don't mind if anyone wants fight against my boxer for tourney practice.

Somehow I just know stang is going to win this tournament, without even being entered in it. Watch.

That made me lol a bit. Hopefully when Super comes out we can have some better mini tournaments and I can get rid of that piece of shit quickly.

I'm down for this.

Timezone: MST -7  

#64 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

You're a wee bit late. You'll probably make the reserves list though.
#65 Posted by Iggins (53 posts) -
@StaticFalconar: You can let one of the reserve guys take my place.
 
It turns out learning to use a fightstick after nearly a year of pad play, sucks even worse then i thought it would. Oh well, i'll get you lot next time...
#66 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@Iggins: Aww Dang. I new this was going to happen as soon as you mentioned learning to use a stick the other day. 
 
Why not just use a fightpad like me? Much easier to get used to, cheaper and erm...... take up less space.
#67 Posted by Driadon (3001 posts) -

Sweet, secured a copy of the PS3 version. When it shows up I'll have to compare the community vs. the PC version.

#68 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Driadon: New face. Excellent...
#69 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -
@Iggins: I'm gonna put you in the reserves list for now just because muscle memory has a weird learning curve and you might find yourself ready before you actually know it. 
 
@Driadon: I'll be sure to beat you down extra hard just to legitimize the PS3 community more. 
 
 
Alright, updated the entry list, and is now currently working on the actual brackets. Trying to find the magic number of total games everybody plays being a good spread among the entry list but not too long so that its possible for everybody to finish all their games in a couple hours.
#70 Edited by Driadon (3001 posts) -
@StaticFalconar:
Well that's no good, with that new avatar you have, I'm going to keep thinking it's Dora punching me in the face.
#71 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -
@Driadon:
That's what our match is gonna be like. 
 
 
 
Alright, made the brackets, but gonna sleep on it before I post it since I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with it which I'll see after some time passes by.
#72 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -

Just letting you guys know that I'm having some serious issues with my internet atm, but I'm hoping it'll be running smoothly by the time this comes round. Seems that my problems are phoneline based rather than ISP, which is a massive fucking pain because I just paid 160 quid to disconnect from BT. At least there isn't a fair usage policy :)

#73 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

Alright, just PM all participants  your matches. any questions just ask. 
 
Max points anybody can get is 100 if they win all thier sets. Hope we get a strong showing cause showing up is half the battle. Weekend of 27th is gameday folks, get ready and get hype.

#74 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@StaticFalconar: What happens if someone doesn't show?
#75 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

If someone doesn't show up it just hurts the tourney really. Before I used to give forfiet points to those that showed up versus those that didn't, but that just inflated the overall points and made them rank higher than someone that did do all thier matches but just lost them all (not fair IMO). If anybody has any suggestions I'm all ears since I understand its not exactly a perfect system right now.

#76 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@StaticFalconar: Don't think there's much that can be done about it to be honest. People would abuse forfeit points, claim they were on all weekend when they were actually on for one hour.
#77 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

This is getting close I better start practising. 
 
To do list: 
Learn-  
Some combos, 
How to play street fighter...
#78 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: Fancy getting some practice matches in? I haven't played properly in ages and I fancied playing a bit with Rufus to get him up to scratch. Friend-list player matches are where its at.

So true. I've played maybe 25 matches since 2010 started. 
#80 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -
 
@GetEveryone: 
 Yeah okay n
ext time then.  
 
@Keeng: 
Yes, lets get our excuses in early. Incidentally; my controller...lag...damn juggernauts..bla blah blah..

I looked at some combos on event hubs but they seemed a bit hard. Back to spamming head-stomps it is then.
 

 
#81 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

In case there's anybody thats not already a participant reading this thread, if you have any urge to be part of rage quit demon 2, just sign up anyway as an alt since this is an online tournament and there is bound to be some no shows. Like all online tournaments this all hinges on how many people show up

#82 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

Played some pretty epic practice matches with GetEveryone. 
 
He beat me pretty convincingly in the end 15-9.  
 
Though I reckon my last win with C. Viper should have counted for at least ten. 
 
Anybody else want to play a few matches cos' this things falling down the list fast.

#83 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: After the first round I sat there mumbling while all my flatmates laughed. I couldn't stop a single burning kick, even with attempted snake strike spams.I'd demand a rematch, but I'm not sure I could take it. I'm still trying to forget...

Hey I'll give you all the rematches you want but that was the first and last time I ever use C. Viper.  
  
May she haunt your dreams forever.
#85 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

I just played a C.Viper who pwned me. Didn't know which way was up by the end.

He performed Viper's 3rd hard trial combo on me 3 times in a first to 5. That shit hurts.

#86 Posted by VicRattlehead (1399 posts) -
@StaticFalconar: put my name down incase someone doesnt show up... ill gladly get me ass handed to me...
 
psn is VicRattlehead ... live in the uk
#87 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -

Sorry dudes but I think I'm going to have to pull out, don't want to have to organise my weekend around this. If there's no one to take my place I'll do it but otherwise I won't be competing. Again, very sorry.

#88 Edited by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

Alright, stupid goggle chrome browser, I tried to edit my post, but it just erased everything and no matter how much I try t repost it it won';t save. So, I'll post the updated one here instead.  
  
@VicRattlehead: congrates your in, i'll PM you the matches.  
 
@Pessh: sounds more like the nerves are getting to me, so i'll just switch you over to the alts list. ope you sign on for some exhibition matches then you'll find out the whole thing really isn't that big of a deal.  
 
 
OK, I am trying to paste the excel sheet down, but goggle chrome and GB don't like each other it seems  
 
 
If you see nothing below this, this means I can't copy and paste excel sheets into the forums using goggle chrome.   
I will then repost and fix the other post tomorrow, when I'm at a different computer with a different browser, 
 
 
 
 
EDIT: different computer and different browser.

 Goodluck to all this weekend. I gotta go back to study for more midterms. At this rate, I'm gonna have one day to cram for this tourney after my midterms,. Oh wells, the victor will be whom is most hungriest.
#89 Posted by newmarcom (296 posts) -

I was wondering, have we all agreed to some form of real time communication? If all of us appear online at the same time, I imagine that getting responses via PSN or GB Mail would be really slow and difficult.

maybe via an irc channel or something- just sit in it for the duration of the tourney and if you see any of your combatants in there challenge them?

Sounds like a plan to me. Maybe provide a link to it in here also.
 
Anyways, I'm considering doing something stupid like streaming my games over the interwebs. If I do take the plunge into insanity then anyone who wants to play me could just message me on that stream. Not sure yet though. See how much freetime I have over the weekend.

That is a very good, welcomed idea. Thing is, I am a complete dunce when it comes irc so if a contestant (or anyone willing to help) can set it up, that would be much welcomed. I seriously don't know a thing about irc other than its on the computer so even if someone does set it up, I might need more than just a link to the chatroom, but some giant knowledge bombs thrown at me.  
 
 
 
EDIT: Just a reminder that fwlyo and Pessh peaced themselves out already so Newmarcom and Rattlehead will take thier places respectively. Make a note if they were on your list. 
#93 Edited by YetiAntics (1492 posts) -

Sad news. Work is gonna kick my ass this weekend due to me agreeing to some OT. 
I'm going to have to withdraw. 
 
Anyone still wishing to test their chops against me, just add me on PSN and we'll bro out.
#94 Edited by newmarcom (296 posts) -

A quick google search shows that #giantbomb exist on irc.rizon.net. Perhaps we could take over the channel during the weekend for the duration of the tournament since it's pretty quiet in there. You can use www.mibbit.com/chat/  to login with any javascript enabled web browser.

Instructions for mibbit:
  1. Select Rizon[webirc] from the IRC pulldown menu.
  2. Type in a username in the Nick textbox.
  3. Type #giantbomb in the Channel textbox.
  4. Click Go.
You may be prompted to retype your username if someone on IRC is already using it.
#95 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -
@PantyshotMQN: At least you did the responsible thing and gave me some warning, hope you'll join the next one.  Now, I just gotta find a replacement. 
 
@newmarcom: Kaboom!! Thanks, didn't know irc was that easy, everybody else talks about irc as if its some mystical back alley hang out spot that only the cool kids go to. Alright, we'll totally take over the GB channel for the weekend; that'll also give a venue for any spectators to get live updates even if its through text.
#96 Edited by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

Yeah I'm going to have to drop out cos' my arse has fallen off, or something.  
Joking. 
The IRC channel seems to work.  
This is looking good.

@StaticFalconar: I can't make the tournament this weekend. Apologies to you folks. :(
