DC KOF XIII Online Tournament - 7/21/2012
« on: July 10, 2012, 04:19:38 AM »
First post-EVO tournament will be on the 21st of July. Got a lot of inspiration from watching all the matches, especially grand-finals, hope to see all players hungrier and improving.


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.

Update: Just got an animal bite on my hand yesterday. It's pretty swollen. Tested it out yesterday and until the swelling goes down I can't play fighting games so good chance I am missing this tournament unless the antibiotics get the infection out by then.

I would like to join but I don't know if it's ok for you, first of all I'm a total noob (just bought the game a week ago), and second I live in Mexico city I ran a ping test from Mexico city to Los Angeles, CA and it gave me 84 pings and 15 jitters is that ok?

^ You're more then welcome to join. The tournament is here to get KOF XIII players together more then anything. We do keep track of wins and losses, but nobody takes everything too seriously. 85m/s  ping is not bad at all. Past 100m/s usually is where lag is introduced and past 120m/s is usually the games get bad. You'll be fine.
