7th post on that page.
Basically when it comes to console tournaments rules and guidelines arent looked into heavy enough because there are granted situations like what happened to me at ECC 8 and recently at TS6. At March Madness back in 2004 there was a big issue with “blue box” in Marvel where basically the systems randomly unregister and unrecognize the systems ports. It can happen with any game but Im just using this as an example.everying is on the console versions of these games are on PS2 so that resoves one of the issues, however it doesnt revolve ALL of the issues.
Now usually the rule is (to my knowledge) if the person hits start, whether intentional or accidentally they are penalized by enacting a do over of the match or disqualification. Usually they give the oposition 3 different options, in note they are given the obligation to
- Continue and resume the match
- Restart the entire match over or
- Disqualify that person (not the tournament coordiantors but the player himself is given this option)
Now theses rules arent enforced or officially enstrickened in any way because evey tournament coordiantor is different…some are leniant when it comes to this issue and some enact on the situation to how they see fit given upon the situation I guess. If someone is landing a combo on you and you pause puposely or accidental that can be justifiable cause for disqualification. What ISNT justifiable cause if the offense is performing or landing the combo and hits it on accident. What bothers me is " how is that person subjected to qisqualification" (of any sort) when he isnt the opposition:confused:
Wouldnt that call for cause upon a continuation?
It makes absloutley no sense to me that someone who is dishing out the damage and is either wearing down life or is going to actually kill that person subjected to a dq. Every situation is different but lets take this one:
Player 1 has 2% life and does an open move and Player 2 is about to kill him with a fierce or something but pauses it (obviously on accident) what would be the call for that situation? Simply unpause and finish it right. There could be 1 penalization or two continuation but why would you penalize the person who is about to or is coming close to winning…
That situation more than likely could just go as a continuation right? But who is really up to…The Player or the Director?..
The reason for this post is for the obvious, why is the offenseive player getting penalized!
“Offensive Pause” vs "Defensive Pause"
Rules and regulations for tournaments are not looked into enough plain and simple and Im tired of going to a console tournament having to worry about something like that because when I hit start on “ffensive” playing Cole at Texas Showdown 6 I was penalized yet when other players did it in the tournament on more than 4 occasions during the CVS2 tournamnet it was over looked, which in case makes me wonder…
Does anyone have an explanation and or a resloution to this effect?
