I’ll try to get in these as my schedule allows. Having them at 10 (CST) at night helps me out greatly with this, so I might be getting in more of these than I figured I would. Then again, with Mario Kart out…I might not.
Edit – I’m retarded and thought it was PST and not EST. ^^; Have fun, guys.
Alright, we just finished our preliminary “warm up” tourney to get a feel for things. I think 2 stock, 3 minutes is just too short. A lot of the time it ended in sudden death with me at like 0 % and the other guy at 100, it was getting pretty frustrating. I forgot to save most of my replays sadly, but I think 3 stock 7 minute time limit would probably be best.
If everyone unanimously agrees that they want the matches to be quicker for the sake of replays though, I’ll have to give in. Lemme hear what you guys have to say about it.
I’m going to try my best to be apart of the tournament on May 7th. If I am able to, I will definately record all of my matches (hopefully). Also, xS A M U R A Ix, if you need any replays converted, you can send them to me and I will convert them if you like. I will just need about a week to do so.
I use Xilisoft Video Converter 3. It is free to download, and will convert the first 5 minutes if you do not pay for it. If you do in fact pay for it, you can convert videos past the 5 minute mark. However, I first have to use a capture card to capture the replays, then I convert them to .wmv in order to edit them and upload them to YouTube.
I’m kind of new on this forum, so if I want to participate in the Ranking Battle, I only have to go on the chat #srkbrawltourney on Wednesday 8PM EST to give my name right oO I am just asking to not like show up on the channel that day and like losing my time since I didn’t give my name or I cannot participate for some reasons…
2 Stock 4 Minute is another option we’ve been doing at our weekly ranbat here in town. We used 2 stock 3 minute for recording purposes at first but we went to time in 3/4 of our matches. So we upped it to 4 minutes and it’s been going pretty smoothly ever since with only about 1 in 5 matches (at most) ending in time, and that’s usually just when we get two people who are both pretty even in skill and are afraid of getting anywhere near the other person.
It’s an option if you want to cut down on time. Otherwise, I’d recommend 3 stock 7 minute. For some odd reason, the 6 minute mark REALLY creeps up on you when you least expect it. Most matches won’t go over 6, and the few that do almost always get decided before 7.
Alright, I’ll take your advice and keep it on 7 minutes then. I really hate games ending in time when one person clearly has a lead, it’s unfair to them. I just want to make sure that the tournament keeps on going, so I gotta have some sort of time limit >_<
I’ll play, but I need to join that IRC channel though. I tried joining it before, but I got confused along the way, so I’ll try again. Also, why must winner keep character? And you didn’t specify if the loser is allowed to change anything.
Winner keeps character has always been the rule in like…every tournament for every game I’ve ever played. If you didn’t have that, you’d have people flip flopping around on what character to play all day. Or losing, counter picking ROB on luigi’s mansion, then switching back to something else after they win. The whole idea of counter picking doesn’t work without that rule >_<
To join the IRC channel, it’s pretty simple, here’s a step by step guide on the lazy man’s way to do it:
In the nickname field, fill out whatever you want for your IRC name.
In the channel, type #srkbrawltourney, or #srkbrawl if you want to join the regular brawl match making chat room / general discussion stuff.
It should load and you’ll be in the chat room, ready to talk. Sometimes it takes a moment for the list of players to load on the right side, but don’t worry, everyone can see you and you can talk, even if you can’t see who’s in there.
If you want to be in both rooms at once, typing /join #srkbrawl or whatever channel you want will open an alternate tab that you can flip to and monitor both channels.
I’ll go specify the character keeping stuff in the rules.
