DC KOF XIII Online Tournament - 6/30/2012
« on: June 19, 2012, 04:28:01 PM »
Second tournament for June will be held on the 30th. This is also the week before EVO, so if you're headed there for KOF13 and are looking for some varied competition before pro-level, step up!


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 - Fill out the following form:

PSN/XBL Handle:
Location:
Speedtest.net/Pingtest.net results (Connect to a server FARTHEST away from your own connection!)
Most played team:
Matchups you want more experience against(optional):

PSN: Seizonsha51
Location: Japan


Most played team: Kim, Ryo, Andy, Terry, Hwa, Kensou, Billy, Chin, Takuma
Matchups I want more experience with: everyone


To add to the Matchmaking, here are more DC online resources to be aware of.

Blue/Green Bar Search Connection List for keeping up with best connections out there.

Good Games Shoutout Thread in case you don't want to leave feedback here.

The Ultimate Opponent Lookup in the Netplay Wiki to see who's in your part of the country/world.

Don't forget to SAVE MATCH REPLAYS if you have some good ones to share!

Feel free to ask questions if you have any.

We'll try Chatango this time; tinychat will be a good contingency, just in case.

Might show depending how tired I am. I suck playing half asleep. Better for me if players want pre-tournament warmup  matches tend to be more awake then.

Okay just picked up the PS3 copy of this game so if anyone wants early games on the PS3 and can help me test this out it would be appreciated. I'm using my cell phone to chat here so I don't have access to the chatroom or have my mic charged up (need to find the bluetooth cord that goes with it. Other then that I am free for pre fight games.

PSN: Mr_Bakaboy

Update: Nevermind today my blu ray drive just crapped out. Knew I should have downloaded the game on the hard drive 1st.
