FFH Trivia Tournament 2009- Congratulations Dominic!
« on: October 13, 2009, 02:26:25 AM »
Since a bunch of people seem to enjoy my trivia games that I throw on IRC every once in a while, I thought it would be fun to throw a little tournament to see who knows the most about the Final Fantasy Series. Lasting_Dawn and I will be making the questions, and I'm quite excited to say that this will be the biggest trivia game yet!

16* will participate… 1 will walk away the victor- a Final Fantasy Trivia Master! Will it be you?

Tournament will take place 8:00 P.M. Eastern Time on Sunday, October 18, 2009.

-Tournament Rules-

1) Closeness Counts
If an answer is spelled correctly enough to where I can understand what’s being said, it counts as a point.

2) If You’re Out, You’re Out
If you’ve lost a round and you’re out, you may NOT yell out any answers.

3) No Man is an Island
Even I can be wrong at times, so if I have a question and it’s been answered with an answer that you know is wrong, find some proof and I’ll give you a point.

4) Tools are Meant to be Used
Using guides and resources such as the Final Fantasy Wiki are perfectly acceptable (not that I would know, regardless), but know that by looking a question up, you could be wasting valuable time compared to someone who may already know the answer. So GUESS if you have a guess, don’t be afraid.

Questions will come from the following games:


List of Current Participants (will update regularly):


The questions asked will be from nearly every category. Music, characters, story, items, monsters, you name it.

Method of Elimination:
Each person participating in the tournament will be on a bracket. At the end of each round, whoever has the least amount of points in their pairing will be knocked out of the competition. Seeds are randomly decided and each round has 50 questions, for a total of 200 questions overall. In the case of a tie, whoever answers a tiebreaker question correctly first moves on.

Prize:
Knowing (and being able to brag) that you know more about the Final Fantasy series than anyone else in the series!


Sign-ups are due the day before the trivia (October 17), and the bracket will be posted the day of the trivia.

The tournament will take place on a special IRC room I will designate by PM the day of the tournament.

HAVE FUN!

*or less, depending on how many sign up.

EDIT:
And so the tournament is complete! Congratulations Dominic!

For those interested in seeing the tournament bracket, I'll post a link to the download below! Thanks for participating!

Oh pitiful shadow lost in the darkness, bringing torment and pain to others. Oh damned soul wallowing in your sin, perhaps...it is time to die

Damn, I want to, but I'm probably doing something for my wedding that day.
Maybe do us non-participants a favor and post the questions here after the tournament is over?

Sure thing, Vanya.

I can sign you up now, and if it turns out you can't participate then you just won't advance. And if you can, you'd be signed up. Interested?

    I don't think enough people here have played that (myself included) for it to be fair to ask questions about it. =P

    Then study. Or ask LD to give you the answers. He's making the XII questions. ^_^

    I note the no tactics advance, also can I request a Vagrant Story bonus round?

    Not enough people have played Vagrant Story for it to be fair, IMO. So sticking to the main series and Tactics should make it as fair as possible. Note that XI is also not included for that same reason.
