[Yomi Tournament] 19XX: Waifu 2 - BD_Corro is CHAMPION!


#1

Hey everyone!

After some prompting, I’m dusting off the TO jacket and seeing if we’ve got enough interest for another Yomi tournament. Indicate in the thread whether you’re interested in participating. If you’re interested in acting as co-TO, let me know - I’ll pick someone from among the volunteers before the event begins.

The tournament won’t start until Topanda wraps up, assuming Fivec is going to cut to finals in the next little while. For now, assume an early February start to the event.


The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Fox at TAS levels of perfection. Because of this, the winner of a match depends solely on port priority. But it wasn't always this way...

‘19XX: Waifu 2’ is a double-elimination event with a short list of banned characters.

http://challonge.com/it/19xx_waifu2

Tournament format and rules​

  • Banned characters: :degrey::geiger::troq::zane:
  • Character select: First game of a set is double-blind, thereafter the loser of each game may switch
  • Format: Double-elimination
  • Timer: Medium
  • Set Length: First to Four
  • Scheduling: You will have one week to schedule and complete each match, deadline is when I get home from work on Monday, put my head in my hands, and realise I have a bunch of new conversations to send out
  • I will discuss who loses in a situation where a match fails to occur with my co-TOs
  • Double KOs: No wins or losses awarded - replay the same match-up
  • Server Crash: No wins or losses awarded - replay the same match-up
  • Reporting: Either the victor or the vanquished (or both) should post results in this thread.
  • Sportsmanship: Be nice!
  • Prize: A prize of cash value not to exceed 20 Canadian funbucks will go to the tournament winner (like an indie game on Steam, or some print-and-play game from the Sirlin store, or something)
  • If I win, I will release a YouTube video of myself enjoying a delicious ice cream sandwich and fanning myself with a $20. Even if it’s cold as fuck.
  • Additional prize - the winner will get to choose the word that replaces ‘Waifu’ in the tournament name for the next event.

Scheduling Tip 1: WorldTimeBuddy.com is an excellent resource for scheduling matches across timezones.

Scheduling Tip 2: If you are posting to the scheduling conversation first, provide a list of dates and times when you are available to play. If you are posting to the scheduling conversation second, pick a specific start time and date for your match from those provided by your opponent. If none work for you, propose specific alternatives.

#2

I’m definitely interested in participating. Count me in, darling!


#3

I’m in, and my post has to be at least ten characters.


#4


#5

no no nO NO!
Goddammit!
You can’t do that!
You can’t post hype MegaMan memes without letting me know first!
Dammit!

Oh, I’m in by the way. I’m just super mad that Utralaw posted hype MegaMan and I didn’t.


#6

consider my body prepared


#7

hmmmmm.
I resent that even being the one pushing for this i do not even get an honarable mention.

I’m in, anyway.


#8

I want in :slight_smile:


#9

Hi ! I’m in :smile_cat:


#10

I’m in.

I’ll just clarify the co-TO role, since it worked well in the last 19XX event and people might hesitate to volunteer without knowing the time commitment/expectations involved.

I’ll be enforcing all event rules and making all final calls associated with the event. I don’t even bother adding co-TOs to the scheduling conversations, as it ended up not adding much value last time, and generally just meant that two more people got bombarded with notifications during the tournament.

I relied on co-TOs to give me their opinions on situations where matches didn’t occur and who they thought should receive the win and the loss. Once I got their feedback I informed the participants privately, and then announced the ruling in the thread. Overall I think maybe the role will take an hour or two in total, over the course of about two months.


#13

I’m wINning


#14

I suggested “Year One”, since the first event would be Year Zero


#15

I’m always ready to spaghetti!

Perhaps this time, without a self-imposed mono-:quince: challenge, I might actually win a set or two :stuck_out_tongue: .


#16

oh cool okay yeah i’ll play, I can co-TO again as well (can absolutely confirm MJ does all the hard work)


#17

In, can co-TO. 19XX is fun for this one.


#18

Oh ye of little faith. How dare you betray our lord and savior, Flagstone’s chief magistrate, SOIREE QUONCE.


#19

Let’s face it. It’s easy to lose faith in a magistrate that’s facing federal fraud charges over a “University” he started years ago.

As long as not being available from Jan 29th - Feb 4th isn’t a problem, in
