Fighting Game or Other Tournament...can we make a comeback?


Recommended Posts

EDIT: I've decided on a game: Street Fighter Alpha 3. The last time we did this game, it was a lot of fun, and I figure this is a great one to start with...however, the rules are going to be a little different, in order to make up for inequities in the last set of rules.

To register, please list your AIM screen name in this thread - and contact another player to start playing.

The League Phase is a round-robin - everyone who wishes to join the tournament will be included, but in order for your matches to count (for yourself or your opponents) you must play at least 3 opponents. During the League Phase, winning a match is everything, but the first tiebreaker is MOST losses - you will always be rewarded in some way for winning a match.

The League Phase AND Registration will end on Sunday, October 5th @ 11:59 pm EDT. You may join the tournament on October 5th @ 11:00 pm, and if you play three matches in one hour then your games count.

The Bracket Phase will consist of all players who won a certain given number of matches - at least 3 wins must be achieved, and you must be ranked better than at least half of your opponents...aside from that, I may limit the round more due to tournament size.

The Winner Picks the Next Game (please refrain from a fighting game, but since this is the first time we're redoing this then maybe it's not a big issue).

Match Format: All matches will have the same general format:

Normal Speed

5 Rounds

Slow Timer

Low Damage

Play until one player has won THREE fights - if there happens to be a tie, replay the fight (but two double K.O.'s in a battle are particularly unlikely).

DO NOT USE ONE CHARACTER MORE THAN TWICE. If there is an issue regarding a player choosing a character in round 1, then the player hosting must choose first.


If you have problems finding the rom or getting hooked up, send me an AIM (metzgerism).

Street Fighter Alpha 2's preferable.

I also love NES Tecmo Super Bowl.

Yeah well nobody else does so just join the Tecmo Player's Circuit and suffer your requisite 18 ass-whuppins :)



I don't care I'd play anything but

shit Mario Kart was fun.

Hey guys...remember Cockbee?

EDIT: Shit...um

One vote for 2020 Super Baseball on the NEO-GEO or SNES.

Alright, so I think we'll start out with Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Last time we did it, we used Turbo 2 - a little too fast, especially for connection speeds. Plus, I don't want two players who are significantly better than the field being given the distinct advantage of playing against opposition that is subjected to a level of play higher than themselves.

So, I'm thinking best 3/5's in both matches and rounds, and to mix it up more, maybe you can't use the same character more than once or twice.

I'm open for suggestions.
