It’s back! @mysticjuicer has agreed to let me revive 19XX, and by popular acclaim, it’ll be our December tournament. That means you have until November 30 to get in on the action, and the tournament will start promptly on December 1st!
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: Titan 5’ is a double-elimination event with a short list of banned characters. The purpose is to get people to play characters (and match-ups) that they might ordinarily not, and to give some of the lower tier characters a chance to shine.
Tournament format and rules
- Banned characters:
- Character select: First game of a set is double-blind, thereafter the loser of each game may switch while the winner must remain the same character
- Format: Double-elimination
- Timer: Medium
- Set Length: First to four wins
- Scheduling: You will have one week to schedule and complete each match, deadline is Monday evening Eastern time. 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, courtesy of @mysticjuicer (like an indie game on Steam, or some print-and-play game from the Sirlin store, or something)
- If @mysticjuicer wins, he will release a YouTube video of himself enjoying a delicious ice cream sandwich and fanning himself with a $20. Even if it’s cold as fuck.
- Additional prize - the winner will get to choose the word that replaces ‘Round’ 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.
