Melty Blood Actress Again for the PlayStation 2 is just mere weeks away from it’s highly anticipated release within the MB communities. Since before MB’s first PS2 release, ECMB has organized some of the most hype underground events: from 15 heads crammed in a basement to 30+ ransacking a city park. The dedication, support and determination is what has kept this quaint scene active and strong through two major revisions. With the 3rd revision on the way, the time has come for MB players to step away from their MBCaster and step into a new realm of MB hype. That realm is know as…
(yeah, I know my not-so-epic OP needs some work )

Captains should be determined upon assignment.
- Captains report starting teammate to a judge. Judge announces opponents for first match to both teams after.
- Winner stays on to face next opponent
- Losing team decides next teammate (that has not already played) to continue the set.
- Coin Flip for Player side upon request. Winning team of the toss must keep the side they request for the entire set.
Game Rules & Stipulations
- Bring your own controller!!!
-Game will be played on VERSUS MODE with default damage settings and timer (handicap and quickmatch will be turned OFF) For you fags that want to run your gimmick characters
Gameplay balance will be set to PS2 Balance (Original).
Player Side (optional) : RPS/Coin Toss to determine player side. If a decision can’t be made, Judge will bitch-slap both players and force a coin-flip for player side (using an american quarter or chinatown fair token most likely).
-Player1 gets the option of Stage Select- no questions. If you want to choose stage then flip/rps for P1 side otherwise just select Random to save time.
Winner must stay with character/Loser is allowed to switch characters.
Winner is allowed to switch Moon Style (Crescent,Half,Full).
-No game freezing, invincibility, gamebreaking glitches/bugs allowed I actually found some gamebreaking shit for NAC so I felt this had to be mentioned. Ryougi LA isn’t considered game breaking (as of yet) and is allowed.
-TYPE EARTH ARC IS BANNED Do you even have to ask why? All consoles will have non-hacked version of MBAA but just in case: All Eclipse characters are banned too. Basically, any character that’s not already on the select screen (with the exception of TypeEarth) can not be chosen.
Pausing during matches is not allowed (duh). In the event of an accidental pause, conclusion of the match will be decided by Judge(s).
Button Configuration is to be set before the start of the (official) match. Use training/versus to test buttons, etc. and restart. Best bet is to choose characters to start the match, pause and configure buttons then return to character select screen via pause menu. It won’t take up that much time.
-Blind-pick/Double Blind-pick upon request (notify Judge). If either player requests a blind-pick then their opponent has no choice but to oblige. Players must choose both character AND moon style before revealing their choice to the opposing side.
Auto-fire not allowed
Macros NOT ALLOWED. You have an E Button that gives access to THREE shortcuts. If you see anyone mapping A+B/A+B+C/A+D buttons or whatever, let me know and I’ll shut their shit down promptly.
Don’t be a queer; shake hands after the match. Man-hugs are optional.
If you’re hardcore about MB then you wont want to miss out on this! Pre-order your copy of Melty Blood Actress Again today and stay ahead of the game. We’ll be waiting for you by the gazebo and until then…keep fasting.
