@deadfrog: Given how “good” my teammate and I are at SFxT, playing the match through and activating Pandora will almost be equivalent ; )
My teammate and I are, frankly speaking, not much of a threat to go deep in our bracket. And my teammate probably won’t get that far in his Marvel pool either. So the amount of actual play time that might overlap is relatively small in our case. But thinking about this a little more, this situation has the potential to become quite a large problem particularly for a team that has the capability of lasting through several matches within their pool (because that team could need to be on call for the entire 2 hour period of their pool). If my understanding is correct, I’m not even sure how you’d fix this issue. With approximately 450 teams that are only identified by the player that bought the registration, there are still 450 teammates who are essentially unknown to the tournament directors and who may be scheduled to play either KOFXIII, MK9 or Marvel at the same time.
I’m optimistic that Mr. Wizard and the other EVO folks have a solution for this. I’ve only been to one other tournament, so I’m not well-versed in how pools are run. But I wonder if they ought to start collecting the identities of both members of each SFxT team so as to determine the actual size of the problem.
