Just like in the past, I’ll be running a Melty Blood Act Cadenza (MBAC) tournament this year, with support from Heidern98 and probably other random GG crew.
The event will be for the PS2 version of MBAC, set to “Original” mode (‘version B’).
Standard 2 out of 3, Double Elimination Format
Neko Arc and Neko Arc Chaos are allowed.
Shield Bunker Cancel (“Bara cancel”) is allowed.
A PC port of the arcade “version B2” has been announced, and is scheduled to be released sometime in July. I don’t want to ignore it, but I also don’t want to force people to switch over at the last minute… because of the difficult situation, I’ve been searching for an alternative solution… probably running both events, but I may just leave it up to the players to decide. Perhaps one event could be singles, and the other team format (similar to how GG is this year). Recommendations for alternate solutions are welcome.
There are some potential problems with running the PC version, which I’ll try to solve ahead of time. Things like… extra USB to PS2 converters for people’s sticks. I’ll bring a few different ones, but because every different stick, compatibility isn’t guaranteed. The best advise I can give (to stick users) is to try to test your stick ahead of time, and find a converter that works for you.
