We will be using the latest version of the NON-steam Melty blood and CCCaster 3.0
(you are free to gentleman the steam version if, for whatever reason, you and your opponent really want to)
Please be in the Discord so I can organize shit.
Send me your IP and port number for CCCaster before the tournament, please.
The tourney begins April 23rd, 5pm GMT. Or 10am PST.
I will be streaming (link here soon) all my matches until I get eliminated. After which I will stream winner's side, losers finals, and grand finals.
Tourney Rules are below
Alright, to commemorate the Official Steam Release of Melty Blood AACC, I think we should have a tournament on Saturday, April 23rd (Time TBD). The game comes out on the 19th, and that should be ample time for us to decide if the new Arcsys netcode is garbage and whether or not we should just use 1.04 and cccaster.
--EDIT: Looks like we're using CCCaster
Basic tourney rules:
-Double Elimination Bracket
-Games will be 3 rounds, sets will be best of 3 games. Winner's, Loser's, and Grand Finals will be best of 5 games.
-First character pick can be either double blind (at request of at least one player, work out how to do it yourself) or standard (just pick a character)
-Game winner is character AND moon locked, game loser can change character or moon before the next game.
-Character specific rule. A player can pick a more color neutral stage if they are playing against a Nrvnqsr or Akiha so that they can see their attacks better.
--Corollary - If a player pauses for a game winning hit, then it's fine.
-Both players must report results to the tourney organizer (most likely just going to be me).
-Melty Bread forumites are banned from entering
-We WILL be using CCCaster for the tourney because the netplay is imply better and it'll be easier for me to spectate
Tourney will take place, 10am Pacific Standard Time on April 23rd.
Please be in the Discord so I can organize this.
Prereg is now, just say you're pre-registering in the comments. You can, of course, drop out if you decide you don't want to pay for the steam version and it ends up happening to be the one we use.
If your account is newer than this thread, you can participate but you cannot claim a prize. Sorry, but fuck you for coming to stomp for a free game.
First place winner will receive a copy of Under Night In-Birth on steam, from me. If they don't want that, they can fork it off to someone of their choosing, or we can work out a different, more or less equivalently price game.
2nd place will get 3 physical grand order cards of their choosing. I'm making a set for custom printing (and have been doing so long before keripo) and I will give you any 3 cards you want. Though you'll have to wait til about July.
3rd place gets 1 physical grand order card of their choice
