It is now going to get underway! Tournament hosts please took notes of the matches and we will assume the responsibility of the matches you volunteer to do. If anyone needs any help please notify those that volunteered to host well in advance so we can keep things moving.

Also I have decided to make this tournament Double Elimination. The map order will be Small, Large, Medium. It will be best 2 out of 3.. The Grand Finals will be best 3 out of 5. The order for that will be Small, Large, Small, Large, Medium. If you lose once, you're not out. If you lose twice, you've been officially eliminated!

Everyone please keep this spoiler free as much as you can.

Good luck and Have Fun!

FFT Arena / FFT Arena 1.42a Team Submissions Thread
« on: June 14, 2017, 04:52:17 PM »

• Any Zodiac, including Serpentarius, is legal
• Teams will consist of four generic humans at Level 35, controlled by enemy AI routines.
• Brave and Faith can range between 40 and 70.
• Each unit has 3000 JP to spend on various abilities.  It costs 250 JP to unlock a job and its skillset; this unlock cost counts for a unit's primary job, as well.  You do not need to unlock specific jobs to have access to other jobs.  For example, all you need to do is drop 250 JP, and bam, you have access to mime.
• Only two units can buy any individual ability.  Innates do not count towards this.  For example, four units could have the Punch Art skillset, but only two could purchase Earth Slash; conversely, you can have two chemists (which have innate Throw Item) and a knight with Throw Item as its support.
• Only two units can equip any individual item.
• Unit names can be a maximum of 16 characters.
• Unit gender is male or female only, with monsters simply having to use "monster".
• Leave any blank slots empty; as in, an empty line.
• Spell correctly.  Whilst it will probably be corrected when received, it will save people from doing extra work.  For example, Magic AttackUP is "Magic Attack UP", Move HP UP is "Move-HP Up", H-Bag is "H Bag", et cetera.
• The following team colours can be used:

Unit Format
Primary Class
Secondary Class/Skillset
Right Hand (Don't put a shield here)
Left Hand

Primary abilities known
Second abilities known

Welcome to my Final Fantasy 5 sessions! 2 times per week I'll be streaming Final Fantasy 5 so I hope you all enjoy!

Also, I apologize for no desktop audio in the video, I had friends over and I was asked to switch the audio to headphones and I didn't count on there being no sound at all. Will have the issue fixed by next part.

FFT Arena / Barren's Mini AI Tournament Registration
« on: November 21, 2016, 10:56:26 AM »
Hey guys I was hyping this up for quite sometime and now I want to announce that my mini tournament registration is finally open!

Now, this will be a long term project with the most amount of matches I'll have on one video. To fill the void, I'll also be doing a LP on Eternal's FFT K.O. 2.6 as well. That will be going on during Christmas break. So stay tuned for that and thank Eternal for the work he put into making this patch and releasing it after 3 years since his last update.

Now the format for this one I've finally decided that it will be a regular AI tournament (We can definitely do a pairing tournament or a SCC tournament in the future). The number of participants I'll allow are 16. No more. I messed up the team count last time and I ain't letting that happening again.

The Rules

JP Cap of 3000
That's right, no JP Cap! So go nuts on spending your JP like you would spend your money on Black Friday!

1 copy of equipment only
You are only allowed to use 1 equip regardless of what class you pick. This will challenge/encourage you to make a either a new team you haven't submitted yet or revamp one of your existing teams. An example of a team anyone can try out with this rule is a water absorb team using coral sword, dewdrop shield, rubber costume and chantage respectively. So please think of something interesting or innovative! You'll be put to the test there!

1 copy of an ability only
For those who are familiar with the Season 3 tourney rules it's pretty as self explanatory as the 1 copy of equipment rule. Pretty much you're only allowed to pick 1 copy of an ability for your team. So no having two units with throw item as a picked support ability. But I will allow innate abilities as an exception to this rule. So for example, you can have a ninja that has innate two swords and a paladin with the two swords support ability on your team. This allows you experiment with abilities that you might not have used before on your usual squads.

The deadline will be 10 days before Christmas which will give people who wish to join plenty of time to think of something. For those who are in school (like myself) can get enough to finish finals while thinking of a team on the side. I am not extending it any further like I have done in the past. Whoever ends up submitting on time will be in. I promise to put in an extra effort to make sure that I didn't mess up and didn't add you to the participant list.

Map selection for rounds and Single Elimination

This will be single elimination. The Eighth-finals and quarter finals will be best 3 out of 5. The semi finals and grand finals will be 4 out of 7. The map selection for those rounds will be Medium, Large, Small in that order. For the Eighth and quarter finals it'll go like medium, medium, large, small, small. For the last 3 matches it will go in the order of Medium, Medium, Large, Large, Small, Small, Small.

What's to gain for entering this tournament?
While not the bragging rights of a seasonal tournament you just say you wanted to have some fun! Good luck to everyone whose entering and thank you all once again for playing FFT Arena!

Edit: Counter Flood isn't allowed because of a damage bug where it will randomly decrease when the reaction ability goes off. Thank you Anima Zero for reminding me

FFT Arena / FFT Arena AI Tournament for Summer 2016
« on: August 01, 2016, 02:32:28 PM »
(Thanks Reks for correcting me earlier) I apologize for those who already voted. I made a mistake in the topic and I'm redoing the topic as it should be correctly called. You can re-vote

To explain what all of these rules mean, SCC (Single Class Challenge) is a tournament where you must pick a primary for all four units. For example, a team of 4 squires or 4 wizards.

Double Elimination is your regular winner's loser's bracket with grand finals.

Swiss-style tournaments allow all participants to play in every round, pairing each player based on their current records. This ensures that players with similar records are paired together. Sometimes, it is not possible to pair players with exactly the same records, in which case you may be paired up or down. The winners of the two brackets will face off in the grand finals.

Pairing rules means that two people team up via random and create a team together. Gatebuster suggested that have a rookie and a pro pair up and make a team together.

Twins Only means that you can make a team of clone units (See Andrew's Twins Time teams as examples).

FFT Arena / Season 5 Tournament for Winter 2017?
« on: July 30, 2016, 02:33:00 PM »
Hey guys with 1.4 already released, I was wondering if anyone would like to do a traditional FFT Arena AI Season tournament for the winter of 2017 (starting January 1 or 2)?

I figure since the fall won't be a go (at least for me to host) because I'm going back to school and I really want to graduate and get out of there. Plus it gives us a chance to get more of a feel for 1.4.

We can discuss registration and whatnot before we do it. Just wanted everyone's opinion on what they think

FFT Arena / FFT Arena SCC Tourney Registration
« on: July 22, 2015, 09:36:15 PM »
Starting today I am accepting teams. The tournament will start in a couple of weeks so start building teams! PM me your team and I will check to see if there are legal.

As voted by you, the rules of this Single Class Challenge Tournament is as follows:

No JP Cap. Go nuts with the JP spending!
2 copies of an ability are allowed. Just like your typical Arena rules
Only 1 copy of an equipment is allowed. This encourages variety in items that is normally not used in typical AI tournaments
Mimes are banned due to glitches that can cause the game to crash

Also in thanks to Mudvayne's suggestion, if you have picked up to three classes then the RNG will be picked 1 -100. 1 - 33 being your primary choice, 34 - 66 being your second choice and 67 - 100 being your third choice. When I put up a stream Saturday (due to the website being down) I will be hosting the random drawing. If you haven't picked up to three classes yet post them in the SCC picks topic.

The Deadline will be August 10 11:59 PM EST

If anyone has any questions you can post here. Thank you and good luck!

FFT Arena / SCC Class picks
« on: July 21, 2015, 04:06:36 PM »
For those who want to enter the SCC Tournament coming up in a couple of weeks, I think we should have a rule implying that only 2 of the same class can be picked. For example 2 people can pick a team of monks or 2 people can pick a team of geomancers. You can still have the freedom to pick whats best for you. The reason being is that this would encourage to have players pick different classes for this tourney. If anyone has a problem or is skeptical about it please post your thoughts here and this can be resolved
