Nice, who was the winner and the team winner? There will be some videos?

EDIT: Oh, ok, I read right now the post explaining that on "offline matches" topic. Cool, I'll wait to the videos ;)

Hmm, I'm wondering now myself, what do they use the ratio for?  Ranbats or Tourneys?


The page I saw mentioned tournaments specifically. I also saw the 2002UM ratio chart hung up near the tournament bracket for that game, so it's definitely used for them.

I don't know the Japanese term for ranbat, so I can't help there.

In related news, our first ratio tourney was a great success and the feedback was very positive from the several people I asked.  15/16 players participated (16th player didn't know about it, in all fairness, she didn't even know she was participating in the tourney PERIOD) and a 15th player, happened to choose a team that adhered to the ratio system (he also didn't plan on participating--he was our HD Direct Feed boss man, and he was kind enough to complete the 16 player pool).  End result, 31 out of 31 characters were used for the tourney, mission accomplished. =)

As far as I've seen, the ratio system is used only at Shinjuku Playland Carnival for their tournaments. The next tournament will be held on 11/27. For those curious, the rules are (if I can remember):

1. 1P and 2P are decided by Rock-Paper-Scissors.
2. You have to choose your characters each match to fit the ratio, no random select.
3. Character changes must be made verbally to the organizers (in order to not time out or go over the ratio).
4. Report any buttons or stick malfunctions beforehand, any made after the match will not be accepted.

BTW, can't wait to see the AI tournament videos.

I hope to see some good Shen matches, and maybe some (also good) Kulas.


Keep up the good work.

^ Well people didn't try Ralk cause of his bug. I hope now we will see some footage. He is completely different than before and I am interested to see a good Ralf and Vice player.

I don't think it was coz of his bug. Ralf plays very similar to his XII version (plus his air dives and his Vulcan mount super).

Finally console version rumors have started. I hope the game really comes out on Q1 2011. Great news. About the online... well, that's have to be seen, is too soon to say it will "kick ass". but i'm really happy to read it :) And the part about aproaching to american tourney scene and western kof comunity is really encouraging. looks like snkplaymore wants to change things with KOFXIII, maybe it's because of its new president.

I'm really excited about the console port rumors. There are a lot of people saying that Q1 is a bad time to release XIII because of MvC3 and MK9.

Personally, I don't think MK9 poses much of a threat, if at all. I have yet to be interested in it.

Releasing XIII around MvC3 though, could be a problem.

I don't think releasing the game around the same date as MvC3 is going to be a problem, on the contrary it will proly affect MvC3 since now instead of KOF players buying a legit copy of MvC3 they will proly get a bootleg copy. I know "somebody" who is going to do that =).

Also we gotta be realistic fighting game players are older nowadays, most (not all) of us are over 18, have a job and are be able to affort 2 games if we really want to. Also the sooner the game comes out the better since we will need plenty of time to see what the response of the community is and how the game is accepted nation wide, that way the EVO organizers will be able to determine if the game is EVO worthy, which is OUR ultimate goal right?
