Solidshark is putting together an online tournament for the community! Details below.
What: An online matchmaking casual tournament event to garner interest back into playing KoF XIII Online. It will be FT10 (4 points), FT7 (3 points), or FT5 (2 points) matchings (optional FT3 [1 point] are optional in case the connection isn’t stable enough from the beginning). All players will agree at the beginning of the match on # of matches. In case connections become totally unplayable, matches will be reduced to when both players agree to stop (example: a FT10 can turn into a FT5 or FT3 if it becomes unplayable). All players wins will be tallied, ranked and posted at the end.
When: March 17th (Saturday) starting at 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM CST, or 4:00 PM to 7:00PM EST for US, Canada, and Mexico. Will try to set time aside for other territories the next time around.
Why: Because the netcode patch has really made a different with the online experience for KoF XIII, and it’s worth doing this to get everyone playing more.
Who: Anybody! Doesn’t even have to be DC members. Play anyone you like. Invite them to DC or chat with them wherever. Doesn’t matter who is playing so long as people PLAY!
Where: Games will be played on PSN/XBL (obviously) but players are encouraged to meet up in the Main KOF 13 Online Chat Lobby and or wibiya DC chat as a back-up. If you cannot make it there (or really prefer other means) then use PSN chats or XBL parties. Skype is an option, however I do recommend doing as LITTLE on your internet connection as humanly possible in order to have a more solid, stable, online experience. Remember to WIRE in as well: wireless NOT recommneded!
As we patiently, or impatiently, await The King of Fighters XIII release on consoles, SNKPlaymore has released The King of Fighters 96 on the Neo Geo Station. It’s another activity to occupy your time and it sure as hell beats staring at the countdown timer. Remember: A watched pot never boils. Get online and play some games! Show off all of the techniques you’ve learned from PhoeniX’s articles! Show off your fighting spirit!
