Hey all! Kicks here.
I said I’d do it so here it is! However… It’s not gonna be what you think. Most of us online players play eachother all the time. We’re all ‘regulars.’ To mix things up a bit, I’m organizing a ‘New Challengers League.’ This doesn’t mean I’m gonna go out searching for new players all over the net (although I will just for more players), it means that all us regulars will have to pick a character we don’t normally use. That doesn’t mean I’m gonna use Hoku over Dong, nor does it mean I’ll use Rock, Terry, Jenet, or Hotaru. I have a good/average knowledge of all those characters. I do, however, know very little about Kevin, Gato, and Freeman. And because Kevin and Gato seem top tier to me, I’m goin’ with Freeman.
Seriously try and pick a character you know very little about/or have played very little. You’ve probably seen a lot of Kevin, Gato, Hotaru, and Butt, but that doesn’t mean you’re good with them. Pick someone who you’ll have to learn a lot about or plays very differently than your used to in this and other games. Obviously some vets here know some sick s**t with everyone, but try and pick your weakest character. Of course this will put a lot on the honor system (although so does a lot of other things online).
Once you assign yourself a character, you will have to use them throughout the league.
It will be in a round-robin format–everyone plays everyone. (I think this is the standard as I’m still learning about leagues^^;). Once everyone plays everyone, a winner and ranking will be declared based on their points.
I’m still deciding on how exactly to score. My thoughts were that you’d play first to 10 and the winner would get a point, but perhaps you could get points for how many wins you have. So even if your opponent got to 10 first, you might have earned 7 or so yourself. Or a combination of the two where you get points for each win, but also the one to reach 10 first would receive a bonus point or more.
I’m also still contemplating the scheduling. I’d like it to happen quick, but people should also have time to hone there skills in between each bout. It will also be tough as I will have each player, along with their desired character post their usual Kaillera play times so I can try and match people up as best I can.
I love this game and I LOOOOVE Dong, but i’d like to see more variety in our little community. If you have a problem with someone’s character pick, like you’ve seen them use them a bunch, don’t hesitate to call them out here or pm me. Remember this is for fun so if you REALLY wanna use a certain character that’s fine, but think about the other players as well. Also remember that you can use your best characters outside of the league in casuals and tournaments. I’d also like to say a word to those who seem to have a beef or bone to pick or ego or whatever. Please join. This provides a different playground that can bring out some interesting competition we wouldn’t normally see. Don’t let your ego get in the way because this obviously puts restrictions on you. And those who have shyed away from tournies, use this as an opportunity to play on a more level playing field. PLEASE JOIN!
The scheduling, roster, and everything else you need will be handled through this thread so stay tuned and post here if you wish to join!!
Overworld, Ace-post when ya know^^
