Second tournament for May. Going to have to put the EU portion aside until next month probably.What
- An online matchmaking casual tournament event for 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. It is recommended you try to play as many different people as possible, but you are allowed to rematch with previous opponents.When
- May 19th (Saturday) starting for North America
at 1:00 PM PST, 2:00 PM MT, 3:00 PM CST, or 4:00 PM EST. There is no penalty for being late
, but of course it's better to be on time go get more action in. The tourney typically lasts 3 hours, but can go on longer if participants are still amped.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 sign in with psn_ or xbl_ in front of your DC name (example: psn_solidshark). 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 do WIRED in as well: wireless NOT recommneded!How
