In honor of KOFXIII's console release I have decided to hold an online tournament following the game's debut. Anyone interested in participating please post your gamertag and what console you are getting KOFXIII for.

The goal of this tournament is both to break out KOFXIII in a big way and to have a massive amount of fun while doing so.

The Rules:
  • Standard double elimination
  • Matchs are best 2 of 3, Finals are 3 of 5
  • Winners can't change characters, losers can, everyone can change order
  • All characters are legal except for the DLC characters
  • There will be a separate tournament for each console provided there are enough players to justify it
  • There is no prize aside from honor and glory

The contest will take place on Saturday, December 3rd at 3pm Central time. I will post the brackets here some time before we start. I shall run the tournament from the toolbar chat here. Signups will end on December 2nd at 6pm Central time.

UPDATE I have decided to make personal messages the primary way of reporting your wins/losses to me. I will still be on the toolbar chat in case there is a problem.

If at all possible I asked that people play on a wired connection. If using a router please remember to have it properly port forwarded. I also ask that everyone please install the game to their hard drives. Lastly, I suggest that everyone add eachother to their friends list before the event to help ensure the tournament runs smoothly.

I have noticed that some of you have signed up without mentioning your gamertag (and in one case which system you want to play on). I realize many have a gamertag that is the the same as your username. If that is the case please tell me. Your gamertag is what I'm putting in the brackets. Don't make me guess!

Here is the sign up list. DC usernames first, gamertags second. Please check and make sure your names are there correctly. If there is an error send me a pm and I will fix it. If there is a ??? next to your name then I don't have your gamertag.

Excellent! Yeah, I was thinking using the console voice chat was the way to go. I already asked a bunch of people to help out and I'm just waiting for responses. But it should be known that I asked Nilcam about my idea for this tournament and he is on board with it provided I fine tune the details a bit.

Hopefully canadian shipping doesn't screw me out of being able to participate in this.  The last game I preordered off amazon.ca came about a week late....

That's not a bad idea. But I am worried about the number of people that can join an xbox live party chat. Isn't it limited to 8 people? Right now I'm leaning towards posting all the matchups in the first post of the thread. After that first round of matches the rest will be handled in text chat here.
