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.

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.

I just wanted to post to comment on the ranbat idea. That's something that could be really cool! I've been looking for an excuse to play this game more, and a season of organized play sounds appealing.

Cool, so something like a Giant Bomb P4A league is probably going to replace these tournaments in the near future.

I prefer tournaments to ranbats if given a choice between one or the other exclusively.

With that said no reason we can't have both. I could take over running the occasional tourny if you want to stop in favor of a league Flux.

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...

How to sign up:

Persona 4 Arena greatly exceeded Index's sales expectations with a total of 220k copies sold. It doesn't say, but I think that's only in Japan since North America isn't mentioned anywhere.

I'm pretty sure that's japan yeah. I love the game, but no way in hell it sold that well here.

I mean that it could be a worldwide sales number.

Yeah that could easily be worldwide. VGchartz, though of questionable accuracy, put sales at 260,000 global, 60,000 North America. Considering the game never charted in the NPD numbers on GAF those North American numbers seem in the realm of possibility too.

@gravitypenguin: Do you still have the template for the brawl stick?

You can get the template for the standard (ex. brawl stick) and TE madcatz sticks here: http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog/2009/02/09/diy_stick_art_sfiv_fightstick_faceplate_templates

Or if you mean the ones I made with persona art specifically let me know and I'll try and upload them somewhere.

GGs guys.

To be perfectly honest, I was so freaking pissed when I lost to MDYu. I mean it wasn't because I lost, I'm not taking anything away from MD, he was better than me this time around. But I kept getting hit by his overheads from the lag so much when I know I blocked it, and when I died by the DP after the raging lion, I just lost it.

But anyways, thanks Flux for another tourney.

On a side note, I wish I could get stuck in a bracket setup to fight against Flux. I want a chance to fight him damn it! Stop knocking me out guyz.

No, you stop knocking me out :(
