hi guys! it’s the end of another great console session and i’m really glad to see so many people (and new faces) gathered at one place!
during the console session, the members of the community who were present (pretty much everybody) discussed the upcoming tourney at length, and this is what we as a community have come up with:
– 16-man singles tourney
– double elim, best of 1
– default time, lifebar and soul gauge
– yoda, vader, bonus characters (like ashlotte) and custom characters are banned
– each match is first to 3
– changing characters is possible
– sbo style stage select
timing: near the end of november, tentatively on a saturday evening (about 6pm to 10pm)
barring any violent objections, we will be moving forward with these settings for the upcoming tourney. do note that these settings may change with subsequent tourneys.
just to clarify on the decision of double elim, best of 1: there is a need for both casual and competitive play, and while double elim, best of 3 will most likely take less than 4 hours, we want to set aside enough time for casual play.
also to clarify, the purpose of this tourney is to start the ball rolling on creating a professional, competitive aspect of soul sg as a fighting game community. we also aim to attract new/existing players to competitive sc4, and hopefully this will give everyone something to look forward to.
on another note, there will be no prizes or titles awarded to the winner, so there’s no need to feel stressed or overly competitive. play however you want, as long as you’re enjoying yourself.
well that’s it for now. as we’re aiming for a 16-man tourney, we really need the numbers and the commitment to make this tourney a success. i hope everyone will do their best to make it for this event and participate in the tourney if possible. please let me know if you have any queries!
