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 AI 1.4a - dw6561 (The Hand Factor) vs Corosar (Blitzers)

FFT Arena AI 1.4a - dw6561 (Too Much Dannage) vs mrbrain600 (Zodiacs)

In case people have been wondering, my 1000th FFT Arena video is coming up and I really want to do something special for you guys. For those who watched every single FFT Arena video I've uploaded (or at least watched a crap ton of them) and enjoyed all I did in the span of six years with breaks in between no matter how long or short, thank you. You guys as a community mean a lot to me and it's great to see you all take the time to watch my videos. Whether it's a educational experience for those who wanted to learn the ropes, for entertainment from the matches themselves, or if you just liked hearing my voice :D

I'm open to ideas on what to do but I would like to perhaps hold a mini tournament of some sort after season 5 concludes. It doesn't have to be that many players involved by any means, just a invitational one at best. Not sure if it will be AI controlled or manual controlled if WKW can help me setup. But either way I want to be all on one video, kind of like a spectacle. Once again thank you all so much for watching FFT Arena and witnessed how its grown and changed. Hopefully when the next patch gets released regardless if we are all a fan of the changes or not we continue to play.

Thanks for your words Gaignun, I do appreciate your thoughts and perspective on the whole thing. I'll do my best to not let it bring me down any further than it did.

At least I know I didn't completely suck this tourney but I did cringe in seeing my team in such a disadvantage I felt powerless. With that said, I didn't really put any thought into the team to begin with because I couldn't think of anything interesting for the tourney despite new stuff already being introduced.

And to be honest, I should have tried to experiment more but I went with what worked for me in the past. Maybe when the next patch is released I'll think of more new things to incorporate builds that I can make work despite others turning the other cheek

I was thinking about shuriken today and even though I think speed is its original formula for damage, if it needs a buff then why not do speed * 10 (or give it 0 MP cost so that way you can stack speed).

If it has to revert to its PA formula again, at least keep it single hit and doesn't phase through walls

Sorry guys for delaying the remainder of Round 6, so how much has happened for me (mostly personal life) lately and it's has been negatively affecting me so I need to relieve myself of the stress for a bit. I will do those tourney matches Friday and have them uploaded that day. I hope I'm not burden to anyone whose looking forward to the rest of the tourney

I've beaten the game on my own time a while back. I really enjoyed playing AM2R. I wish I was a Metroid fan sooner because other games like Super Metroid and Fusion and Prime are great games.

I'm still playing Super Metroid to this day since I first started playing

Then what I will do is hold a tie breaker match where two people at the bottom of the top 12 with the same record will fight it out. If that is too complicated. Then we could do a top 16 instead. It evens out the singles bracket and doesn't require players being seeded

Hey everyone as we know that the tournament is inching towards the end and while it wasn't in the initial discussion when putting the tournament together, by the end of round 6 we're going to do a top 12 bracket based on the top twelve records since gatebuster mentioned that a lot of people will end up with the same record.

Please during the week if you are in favor of this post here and I will PM andante on adding more matches towards the tournament. However the semi finals and finals are set as they are
