FFT Arena Season One Discussion Thread
« on: April 29, 2012, 08:20:29 AM »
WHEN POSTING ABOUT A MATCH, USE SPOILERS. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN A DELETED POST.

That aside, this thread is used to discuss the battles as they happen. Point things out, critique the teams, share what you enjoyed, etc. As mentioned above, please use spoiler tags so as not to spoil those who haven't seen the matches yet.

Here dying, join my legion of undeath. Your blood, the roses on unhallow'd graves!

I'm excited! Even if I don't do well it's still fun to watch everyone compete. :D

Will there be a losers bracket or is this one and done?

Loser bracket = More fights / Work for the host/s
I'd like to see them, but not if the amount of work is painfully big

Yeah I figured as much. I could maybe host some scrimmages over the summer, but not right now.

Maybe I'll get some wins on my third try. Oh wait, this is just my second attempt. Uh oh.

As it stands, 47 teams requires 17 first-round byes.  If we added one more late submission, 48 teams would only require 16 first-round byes.

If we don't have a 48th player registered, then that would suggest several byes.

Plus we'll have to structure the tourney like way back when Season 3 came around

the bracket would look like this: http://challonge.com/tournament/bracket_generator?ref=LYVDBOPQLE

If 47's all you got an having just another team in there would make it 48, how about some people come up with some random shit?
Unless you wanna go out and find a real 48th.

Whichever's easier, getting another guy or just plugging in a B team from someone else..

Just going to sabotage the whole tournament, eh? Sounds like fun. xD

Quote from: Tycho
“There are a number of different factors impacting server connectivity on Xbox 360,” the spokesperson said. “It is a particularly complex server architecture and we continue to work with Microsoft to improve connectivity.”

I don’t want to bolster any “violent gamer” tropes, but that statement makes me want to improve the connectivity of my front two knuckles with their esophagus.  I wonder how Brenna would respond if I told her that “fidelity” was complicated.

Another idea:

The 48th team should be a team of champions: Four winners of the previous tournaments create their own unit to form a team. Perhaps to make it interesting (and fair? considering how well versed with Arena the winners are), that team would only have to be defeated ONCE for the other squad to win.

Dunno, just trying to think of something that doesn't require wading through Slow, Stop, Poison, Blind, Don't Act, Death Sentence and Silence..

In theory, with 48 people, you only need 3 byes if you slightly change the order past the semi-final round.

Winner's Bracket:
Round 1
48 teams (24 winners, 24 to Round 1 Losers)
Round 2
24 teams (12 winners, 12 to Round 2 Losers)
Round 3
12 teams (6 winners, 6 to Round 3 Losers)
Round 4
6 teams (3 winners, 3 losers to Round 4 Losers)
Round 5
3 teams (1 bye to the team with the best overall Win / Loss, 1 winner, 1 Loser to Round 6 Losers)
Round 6:
1 + 1 = 2 teams (1 winner, 1 loser to Round 8 Losers)

Loser's Bracket:
Round 1
24 teams (12 winners, 12 eliminated)
Round 2
12 + 12 = 24 teams (12 winners, 12 eliminated)
Round 3
12 + 6 = 18 teams (9 winners, 9 eliminated)
Round 4
9 + 3 = 12 teams (6 winners, 6 eliminated)
Round 5
6 teams (3 winners, 3 eliminated)
Round 6
3 + 1 teams (2 winners, 2 eliminated)
Round 7
2 teams (1 winner, 1 eliminated)
Round 8
1 + 1 teams (1 winner, 1 eliminated)

Championship:
Best of 5

Let's create a randomly-generated team!

I sent a RNG chosen team to CT5Holy the other day.  Name/Gender/Job/2nd/r/s/m all randomized.  It wont be strong, but I think they would be amusing to watch.

I'd still rather have the late submission team as the 48th though.

*Edit* Although there is a minimum of byes in this bracket format, a semifinal bye seems a bit much.
