Alright, kids! You wanted it, you got it.
AVATAR FIGHTER ONLINE ONLINE FIGHTER TOURNAMENT…WITH AVATARS!
Time: Saturday, 1/14/12, 7:00 Central. (8:00 EST, 5:00 PST)
Format: Double-elimination, 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches. Grand Finals will be 3/5 matches. (Winners and Losers Finals are still 2/3 matches.) Winner keeps character/Avatar/moveset.
Legal characters/moves: All of 'em. Seriously. Since the unblockable projectile glitch has been patched and there’s a one projectile limit on screen per player, there’s nothing right now that I could see as being broken. Cheap? Oh god yes. Deal with it, nerd.
Entry Fee: Your Pride. All of it. It’s on the line.
Prize: Uh…I don’t have anything. Actually, I take that back. I think I have a 100 Microsoft Points code laying around from that Bing Rewards thing. That’s right. Winner gets like $1.25. Seriously, I don’t have anything cool to give away online. Sorry. If this takes off, I’ll start considering giving you prizes out of my pocket. And I don’t mean lint.
How do you enter? Simple. Post in here by 6:45 CST Saturday, make sure to include your XBL Gamertag, and meet back in this thread at 7:00 CST this Saturday. At 7:00, I’ll post everyone’s first match. Add that person to your XBL Friend List, get in Avatar Fighter Online, and play best-of-three matches. Winner reports back to this thread, and I’ll post the next round once everyone finishes that round. Rinse and repeat until we have one person remaining.
THINGS TO REMEMBER!
You MUST have at least ONE open spot on your Friends List. I can’t remember if Microsoft still has that 100 Friends limit or not (guess how many friends I DON’T have), but it’s not something we want to deal with that day. So make sure you have room for your opponents.
Make SURE you have Version 1.2. I’ve had a couple Version Mismatch connection errors lately.
DON’T LIE. Seriously. It’s a free tournament and the winner barely gets anything aside from manly amounts of pride. Don’t make me require screen-caps for a free tournament that involves a $1 indie game. Play some casuals afterward, ask for tips on the forums later on, but own up to your losses.
Last, but not least, QUIT DOWNLOADING PORN WHILE PLAYING. Netcode is good but not that good. Tell the missus that she has to wait a little while to finish that season of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. She might get angry and go cheat on you while you play, but hey, it’s worth it.
I, uh…think that’s it. Let me know if I forgot anything important. First time organizing a tournament online.
ENTRANTS SO FAR.
