    Wednesday nights. Are you free? I don't mind driving you down if I'm coming from Conway those days anyway. We need more GG players.

    I'm off tonight, so I'll be down for GG. After trying the horrible netplay they have for the PSN version, I'd like to have real matches. You guys weren't joking about those servers.

    Should be down tonight for some GG, and up for a league... but yeah, not on netplay :s ElvenShadow said he mailed ArcSys and they have plans to fix bugs and improve online but to please be patient etc.

    Break down for Season 2 of the Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus ranbats

    Season 2 will be ran based on a Danisen League set up (similar to Tekken online ranking and Persona 4 Arena's Online Grade system). Unlike previous tournaments, it will not be timed based. Meaning you can show up and not have to wait for someone to get there to start a match and you can still win even if you don't show up every week.

    Basic Rules:
    - Each match will be 3/5 Rounds, 99 seconds.
    - Each match you play is one point.
    - You're only allowed to play one person in an "official" match three times in one night and it can't be 3 straight matches. (Mix it up and mingle)
    - Winner stays on until they either lose or rank up. As soon as one of those options happen, they MUST get up.
    - Loser has to get up unless there is no one else to play, then there can be a runback.
    - You rank up after gaining +3 points and down rank after losing -3 points
    - You can not down rank below base rank.
    - Everyone starts at C (0)
    - Grades are: C, C+. B. B+. A, A+. S
    - You can only play someone within one rank of you. (C+ players can play C and B Grade players)
    - You can challenge someone two gardes higher than you to a high stakes match. If you win, you gain 2 points, but if you lose, you lose 2 points. The person you challenge wins/loses the regular amount of points. And only a person of lower grade can make this challenge.
    - Must play a minimum of three matches each week.
    - Two stations will be set up based on Grade. Lower levels and higher levels.
    - You can sign up under different characters (Ex: GBS Giovanni(I-No)(C+ +2), GBS Giovanni(MI)(B +1). So, if you reach a point where you're higher than anyone you can play, you can start at base level with a new character.
    - Matches will be self-govern but wins MUST be reported to me ASAP or they will not count. (If I'm not there, then text me your win.)
    - The two with the higher Grade by the end of the season will gain the first and second place prizes.


    If you have any questions, ask them now before Wednesday.

    That sounds fun! Do you know if it'd be possible to record the matches on at least the higher level station?

    How can we win without showing up every week when we have to play a minimum of 3 matches a week?

    Post from the grave: how large is the player base for P4A on the 360? I'm looking for a recent game that's not trash online (until the GG patch next... spring) and that seems to be the safest bet. Kind of curious to try out Yukiko since she seems to be a little Arakune-like from what I've seen so far. Thanks :)

    Decent at best. You won't get many random rank matches but stay in touch with our DL XBL thread

    http://www.dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?14654-P4A-XBL-Match-Finder-GG-Thread

    Where we create lobby with some of our strongest players. If I'm not at work or out I'm also available to play. I'm sure Taylor as well.

    Also, Teddy/Kuma is closer to Arakune. Yukiko is more like Lambda/Nu in regards to zoning

    Also just play Blazblue. There's no better character like Arakune than Arakune himself. It's also the better game.

    What Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Interesting, Teddy wasn't on my radar at all. Nothing wrong with Nu either, mind :)

    Max, I haven't played much Blazblue since I had to sell Extend after moving to the US (region-lock is fun), but I was just dabbling with Arakune, Carl and Mu after getting tired of basic Jin stuff. I'm waiting for CP to touch Blazblue again now though... and for the GG patch meanwhile.
  • GBS GiovanniGBS Giovanni Winter's Coming Joined: Posts: 2,961
    Teddy is a really strong character and hard to guard against at times. When played right, Yukiko is also pretty strong. Only character not tournament viable in that game is Liz. :(

    Ah, gotcha. I saw Extend for pretty cheap recently. Like $10 or so new, but those were temporary deals.

    Aki is like on the upper in of the tier list, has players who's won large Japanese tournaments, ex: Kubo, if you're struggling with Aki then it's user error. He's really good, not Mitsuru/Aegis good but good.

    So he's the worst at being the worst? Sounds good.

    Meetup at my place in Little Rock this Saturday, guys. GG, Marvel, SF, P4, whatever you guys want to play.

    Ya Akihiko is awful. He's at the awful end of the tier list.

    Kubo is godlike, that's why he wins. Godlike at everything because he's godlike.

    If you're struggling with Akihiko, it's user error.

    Hello I live in Fort Smith, Arkansas and i'm trying to find more players to hang and play with. :)
  • SmokeMaxXSmokeMaxX T.O. of A.R.K. Joined: Posts: 7,974
    You came to the right place! Well, more or less. Our scene has been a little dead lately for various reasons, but there are definitely a lot of players within the state. There are communities in Fort Smith, Fayetteville, and Rogers each of which are near you. If you don't mind the drive, I'd recommend going to the meetup on Saturday here in Little Rock. Most of the better players in the state will be there and it should be a ton of fun. Most important thing though join the Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/373796221942/ to keep up to date with local meetups and whatnot. From there, add me as a friend (MaxX) and I'll message you a list of people that you should talk to for your local meetups.

    Our scene is fairly strong. We've hosted some of the bigger tournaments in the region that the likes of Justin Wong, Noel Brown, Marn, and Ricky Ortiz have attended. We also have a player that is at or near that level of play. I don't know how good you are now, but it's very likely if you play a lot with us you'll get a lot better. Oh and finally, welcome to the group!

    What i'm reading here is Kubo is godlike but Akihiko is ayuss.

    Sounds right to me.

    Lol I just saw that they moved your other thread to the Midwest regional subforum. You'll never find Arkansas players there.

    Yeah there are definitely a lot more players than that, but they probably turned notifications from the group off. I'll hit you up with some contacts later. Also, I heavily encourage you to take that enthusiasm and start your own meetups/tournies and whatnot. We could always use more community leaders.
