UPDATED WITH NEW RULES
Our series of online ranbats that you can participate in!
What’s a ranbat?
Short for ranking battles, these tournaments hand out ranking points rather than a prize or pot money. Your total ranking points mean 2 things: a) your rank (duh) and b) they will determine the way you will be seeded in the next tournament.
What games will we be playing?
We’ll have 2 on going series. One for King of Fighters 98 and the other for randomly chosen SNK fighting games.
Standard tourney rules apply. 2/3 double elim and 3/5 grand finals. If you happen to go missing, I’ll give you 3-5 minutes before I move you to losers bracket. If you’re already in losers bracket, I’ll disqualify you.
What do I need?
You’ll need 2Df because that is what we will be running these tourneys on. You’ll also need the roms. For the random SNK games, I’ll let you know which game we’re running in advance. You’ll also need mIRC or alternatively you can use efnet’s web client. You’ll have to access #SNKPlaymore on the EFNET server. When it is time for the tourney, I’ll make a separate channel. Communication is key so if you can, add me on MSN or AIM or something just in case something happens.
What do I need from you?
I need your opinions! Suggestions! Anything!
Why should I take place in these?
Who cares if you suck at these games? We’re not here to judge. Participate and I guarantee it will be fun.
So how do I sign up for them?
To sign up, throw a message my way via IRC, AIM, MSN or PM. Remember! You HAVE to be in the IRC channel for these tourneys!
The main platform we will be working with is 2DF. I would prefer to have finals on 2DF because they’re recorded. If you 2DF isn’t working for whatever reason with another person, take your match to another platform such as GGPO or p2p. If you cannot get either of them to work, I’m have no choice but to have the players play rock paper scissors. Both players will have to message me with either ‘rock, paper or scissors’. Best 2 out of 3 wins. Makes more sense than flipping a coin.
Rankings: coming soon!
