Hello everyone, the next session for the offline Danisen session Saturday 10/29/2011 in my garage. This is the week before Dromstruction, so everyone planning to go should definitely show up to practice. BUT REALLY, YOU SHOULD SHOW UP AND PLAY.
This time around, if you are bringing a setup, please show up a little bit early so we can get set up by. Everyone else, please show up as you have at around 2pm.
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF
When attempting to go to my house, you MUST enter through the gate on South Street. If you attempt to enter my neighborhood via any other gate, you will make yourself sad as there is no guard there to let you in. Thus, whenever you’re creating directions, MAKE SURE that your directions take you to the gate on South Street and not anywhere else. I can honestly not stress this enough. A good way to know that you’re doing it right is that you are making a left or right on Alphington Ave. If this street does not appear anywhere in your directions you are probably doing it wrong.
When you finally make it to the South Street Gate, the guard will ask you where you are going. Tell him my address and my name (James Xie) and you should be fine. Once you get in, follow the rest of your map and you should wind up my my house. Park somewhere on the street nearby.
What to bring
If you would like to bring a full setup (monitor, cables, console), please do and I will find a place to set it up. If you want to play other games, you can bring those too, but we’ll probably shun you to the driveway.
Other than that, bring whatever other equipment you need to play on a console, aka sticks, controllers, etc. However, if you show up with a hitbox or a pad, we’ll be sure to constantly [S]verbally abuse[/S] encourage you to eventually learn stick.
What the fuck is a Danisen?
Good question. The Danisen system is something that’s gained popularity in fighting games over the years and is something they use to rank people outside of the standard ranbats. Basically, it’s like playing for points. You fight your opponent as you normally would, and then you gain or lose points for winning or losing. There are associated levels and restrictions based on each level. Pretty simple.
*Starting out *
-Each time you win a match, you gain 1 point. Each time you lose a match, you lose 1 point.
-Everyone begins at “Rank 1” ranking with zero points.
-You cannot go below 0 points as a Rank 1
-You can level up by reaching +3. Conversely, if you reach -3 in your ranking, you will level down.
-Every time you level up or down, you start at +0 for that Rank. From there, you can once again move up or down as normally.
-You can only play someone within 1 rank of yourself. For example, Rank 1 vs Rank 2 is fine, but not Rank 1 vs Rank 3.
-If there are less than three people in the highest current level, you may not play at that level until there are at least three people. Try to focus on an alt if you make it to the very top.
Rank 5 - Strong
-Due to the current player cap, Rank 5 is now a special Rank
-Rank 5 requires a player to reach +5 to reach Rank 6, getting demoted to Rank 4 still only requires a -3
Rank 6 - The King of Kings
-Rank 6 is the same type of special rank
-However, you must reach -5 to get demoted from Rank 6
Rank 7 - God of Gods
-A player who is Rank 7 cannot Gain points, for example, if he wins at -4, he will stay at -4
-Similarly, losing to a Rank 7 player does not cause you to lose points (unless you are also Rank 6)
-All wins will instead be counted as W’s. They will be tallied up in a cumulative score.
-Standard tournament rules, 2/3 rounds, 99 seconds, [S]NO CHEAP SHIT[/S]
-All characters are allowed, except the unlimited ones
-In the interest of not wasting time, no Stylish Mode chracters
-Each match you play is 1 point, it is NOT 2/3 matches per point
-Winner stays after he wins, if he gets promoted, then he must get up.
-Losers get up, if there is REALLY no one else to play, you can have a salty [S]runback[/S] funback
The way the room is set up is something like this:
-Each TV will have a level range assigned to it (Rank 1-2/Rank 2-3/Rank 3-4)
-Line up on a TV within your correct range
-When it is your turn, sit down and play your opponent
-If you win, you must stay put. If you lose, you must line up on a DIFFERENT station in your range.
This way, if you are capable of following directions, you will never play someone out of your range. If there are a lot of players in a particular range, we’ll increase the number of setups for that range, but the same rules apply.
Different Character Rules
-You may play more than one character at the Danisen, each character will have their independent score own score.
-You can even play a character in a vastly different way and have it count as in independent character (For example, Bobby can play on stick have have his score be independent)
-You may play multiple characters per day. HOWEVER, if you choose a character, you may not choose another character until you level up or down with that character. The exception is if you are Rank 1 with 0 points, you may switch character whenever you want.
If you want to work on your tournament nerves, I recommend bringing some change for the “loser” jar. Every time you lose, you will put your own self ordained amount of money into the jar. I’ll be providing drinks at the event, and future drinks will come from the loser jar, so get bodied for a cause.
Special Event List
Every week we will have a new type of special event to mix things up. Here are the list of current and past events.
10/2 - The Gauntlet of Gods
-Each player in the top rank must participate
-Each Rank 7 player will be forced to play 5 matches in a row, starting with the newest Rank 7 player
-This will continue until all but one of the Rank 7 players is demoted
