DBFZ is coming out on January 26 for PS4, PC and Xbone! I thought organizing some GB Casual Fight Nights during the week would be a fun idea. @esreverand I plan to hold weekly tournaments for those interested. Currently PS4 is where we will be hosting casuals and tournaments. However if someone wants to host events for the PC or Xbone versions of DBFZ let us know and we can promote them here.
I want to emphasize that the tournament is not the focal point of all this. The casual play sessions are. The goal is to create an environment for those new and old to FGs to have fun and learn. Post here with your PSN/Steam/Xbone/Discord names along with your region and hopefully other like minded folks will do the same.
Rage Quit Weekly Tournament (PS4)
Unfortunately, due to connection issues with Ring matchmaking, we will be moving the first DBFZ Rage Quit Weekly Tournament to whenever Bandai releases a patch to fix it.
YOU MUST USE OUR GB FG DISCORD TO COMMUNICATE DURING TOURNAMENT https://discord.gg/VAZ5k8f
After Sunday's Casual Fight Night we will host a tournament for those interested. You must communicate during the tournament in our #dragon_ball_fighterz channel. We will bump this forum to remind everyone about the tournament at that time. We will begin the tournament after the Casual Fight Night ends at 7pm EST Sunday.
The rules are as follows.
- Tournament will be double elimination, meaning you need to lose to two opponents before you are eliminated from the tournament
- Matches will use the default settings, and be 2 out of 3. Winner Finals, Loser Finals, and Grand Finals will be 3 out of 5. In addition, the person coming from the loser's bracket will need to win two sets of 3/5 while the winner only needs to win one set of 3/5
- Upon losing a match, the losing player may switch characters if they like. However, the winner must select the same character.
- Players are responsible for reporting their own scores on the Challonge page. If you have any problems doing so or you accidentally enter the wrong score/winner let me know during the tournament so I can fix it.
Casual Fight Night on PS4
With the help of @esrever we plan to have Casual Fight Nights on
Sunday 6-7 PM EST
Tuesday 8-10 PM EST
Friday 7-9 PM EST
We will post here and on Discord with the lobby details. The best way to communicate during these sessions is on Discord in the #dragon_ball_fighterz text channel. Using Discord is not mandatory for these, so if you would rather let your buttons do the talking it's all good. Want to play but can't make it at these times? Hit up the Discord to find games when you are free and in the future we might revamp the Fight Night schedule.
Giant Bomb FG Discord Channel
Discord Link https://discord.gg/VAZ5k8f
We have a Discord for people on GB who play or want to learn more about FGs. For DBFZ all communication will take place in the #dragon_ball_fighterz channel. If you have a passing interest in any FG or want to watch an upcoming FG stream while chatting with GB people come on by. We have people of all skill levels that play a wide range of FGs. With that said we have gaps in what people play regularly. So if you're really into a fighting game that isn't getting much play on the discord, drop by, build the hype and teach us!
