I had a good run.  Being able to thoroughly dismantle someone in 5 minutes is fun.  However, my team lacked the risk strategies (geomancy, charm, status effects) that made my S5 team more dominant.  I think part of the reason lies in this year's approach.

I wasn't objective enough this year.  Knowing the "best" offensive strategy beforehand made me far less willing to experiment on adding defense/healing/status/AoE or more synergy (things that made my S5 team strong).  Unlike last year, I didn't approach this tournament as a novice and that limited the amount of thought given as well as the depth of testing.  Because of this, I went into the tournament knowing beforehand that other people could wall my team (most notably AeroGP and Gaignun, but also Fanatic, Lief, and Angelus, to some extent).

In that sense, I was relieved that I wasn't humiliated by the above teams; at the least, I fought for all three rounds.  However, in many ways, it hurt more: I lost on "bad luck" (a kagesougi missing at 76% hit or a Raise2 missing at 88%) to fast squads that had vastly inferior damage output, AoE, and range.  In context, however, the problem then became clear.  The team I submitted this year is PX's team from last year, with slightly more healing.  Luck could only work against my squad because it could only win if my defensive reactions always triggered and every physical attack always hit.  I had no room for error because my fallback plan was multiple-redundant firepower, which doesn't work if I'm outnumbered and outsped.

Testing after the fact, I realize this is probably the stronger squad:

First off, big props to Avalanche and Gaignun both. Great games between two great players.

Anyways, I was pretty pleased with my team's performance considering that this was my first time playing FFT:A. I think my final record was 7-3. Losing to the WB champ and then running into another great team like BQB's in hell isn't too bad IMO. At the very least I'd say that my team was pretty exciting to watch haha.

It's done? Wow.

Congrats to our winner! Guess the other one didn't do a champion streak...

Definitely a congratulations is in order for Avalanche, you did a marvelous job in this tournament and really put on a tremendous performance. Defeating last year's winner was definitely something to witness for sure.

I feel though my outing was better compared to last year's tournament. Having from what I record the second most wins combining the winner's and loser's bracket records was definitely an accomplishment for me as Celdia pointed out. For that I'm proud of my performance this season and hopefully I'll do even better next season. But we'll wait until the time comes. For now I have a win/loss record for every team in this tournament

Legends

Bold = Winner's Bracket Record
Italicized = Loser's Bracket Record
Underline = Overall Tournament Record


Again this is putting together all of the wins and loses from the winner's and loser's bracket. And to clarify why Avalanche's and Gaignun's numbers are higher in the italicized part is because they both were in the championship match; in the case for Avalanche he had to win netherworld bracket 89 to get to that point.

Barren, my record is 8-5.  7+1 doesn't equal 9.

I think that would be me because of the amount of wins i got up until netherworld match 89

As of right now we don't really know. We're currently giving 1.38d a try and myself and occasionally Dol or Otabo will upload videos on Arena 1.38d. Until then if you're interested in submitting a team by all means give it a try :)

That was nearly 3 years ago when FFH did the 1.3 AI tournament season 3 hosted by Zodiac aka Xifanie and then member Archael. This is FFT Arena, completely different patch from 1.3
