More updates soon (?)
Last update: 9/12. Shotokan, Turbo, Waffelz added.
Last update: 9/26. MDK (Badguy00) added to roster.
Last update: 9/27. AlterGenesis and Comic-Z added to roster.
IMPORTANT INFO: To avoid any last minute clutter and confusion I think it would be best to close the brackets on Wednesday, October 3. Team UberSoldat (unofficial name) i.e. Akatsuki/Mizuumi will probably start arranging the brackets on Monday (10/1). I was considering on pairing up players by neighboring regions to avoid any serious lag issues but I’m certain that near the end of the tournament there will be a substantial amount off distance between players that will probably result in undesirable performace. Standard :rolleyes:.
Any suggestions from entries are welcome. This is my first attempt at a netplay event and overall my tournament know-how is rather limited. This does not mean that I’m going at this alone but the more help, the better.
Last update: 9/29. Sibladeko added to roster. 4649 time of availability edited.
IMPORTANT INFO: Well since the amount of entries are starting to become stagnant, I don’t think it would be such a bad idea to close the brackets on Weds, Oct 3rd. I intend to debate over this in the akatsuki/mizuumi channel possibly today or tomorrow. Don’t take any chances, JOIN NOW!!
Last update: 10/1. Announcement.
#1 So it’s official, **AS OF 12pm/Noon (EST), Wednesday, October 3 WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY NEW PLAYERS AND THE BRACKET WILL BE CLOSED! **If you have not joined #AKATSUKI @ IRC.MIZUUMI.NET you need to show yourself there at least once by Thursday and talk to “Sibladeko” or “Bellresia” or “Zar” to get info about your first matchup. About Half the players that signed up HAVE NOT visited #akatsuki ever so I will be sure to harass you via PM. If you do not have IRC or are a complete IRC noob I will link you to a site for assistance. YOU MUST PROVIDE INFO ON HOW WE CAN CONTACT YOU (preferably online =p). The tournament will flow smoothly if we have a way to contact you live. WE WILL NOT BE CONDUCTING THE TOURNAMENT THROUGH PM’s. You can forget about that shit. We will most likely assign the brackets on Weds evening and post the standings/matchups in this thread. I will reiterate tournament rules either today or on Weds.
#2 A new EXTENSION PATCH was released last night. It is very crucial that you upgrade to this patch to avoid any possible mishaps that may occur when attempting to play your opponent over the net.
Last Update: 10/3. Added Zedd56 to roster. More information regarding the tournament will be added SOON so hold tight.
**Last Update: 10/5. Canned quite a number of players and pushed the first round of matches back a day (10/6) out of kindness for the players that have yet to respond to my PM’s or show up in the channel :bluu:. As a result, I have decided to redo the brackets instead of everyone getting byes the 1st rd (lol). New bracket will be posted in a few hours. Rules and some other important info will be added in the last post along with the revamped bracket. PARTICIPANTS MUST SHOW UP IN THE CHANNEL (#akatsuki @ irc.mizuumi.net) FOR MATCHUP STATUS. MATCHES WILL START AS EARLY AS 5PM (EST) AND CONTINUE UP UNTIL ABOUT 1AM (EST). Most of the participants matches occur between 7pm and 12am but you should still try to show up early to be on the safe side .
Thanks to all that signed up and good luck to you. BLIIIIIIITZ HEIL!
FINAL UPDATE: Check out DEM BRACKETS here. The shit jumps off TODAY @ 5PM (EST). Lace up yo’ boots!!
