    PS3 Fight Club: Super Street Fighter IV Ranbat #1



    Super Street Fighter IV Ranbat #1 for PS3

    Start Date: May 23, 2010

    Rules

    1. No character is off limits. To encourage players to use new characters, for this particular tournament only, an extra 5 points will be awarded to players who use a character who is new to the SFIV series (Juri, Hakan, Dudley, Ibuki, Makoto, DeeJay, T. Hawk, Cody, Guy, and Adon ONLY). No extra points will be awarded for using a returning character's new ultra. The 5 points will only be added to your total and not for each individual match won/lost. In order to earn the 5 bonus points, at least 50% of your matches must be played using one of the new characters. Players can change characters at any point during the tournament.

    2. Each match must be played within a week. If players have issues concerning connection, scheduling or otherwise, they are to notify me and their opponent before the week is up. If the week has passed without the match being played, the appropriate player will be moved to losers bracket and then eliminated (those who made an effort to play their matches and notify me will not be penalized). No make up matches will be allowed to ensure continuity of the tournament.

    3. All matches will be best of 3 rounds, with each player needing to win 2 out of a possible 3 sets. If a draw game happens, players will play a sudden death match in a best of 3 rounds setting.

    4. All entrants must register before May 22, the day before the tournament is set to begin. If you have to drop from the tournament, let me know before the tournament's start date. There are no limitations on entrants and all match ups will be randomized using Tournament Maker.

    Scoring
    Creating a scoring system that would be equal for all tournaments is very tricky. I contemplated awarding a point for each win that would increase until the end of the tournament. The problem here is that the player who stays in winners will play fewer matches than the other players. I also had to take into account the 5 bonus points for players using characters that are new to the SFIV series. On top of that, I want all ranbats to have the same weight when figuring out the overall score of a player. What I finally came up with is pretty simple.

    As SSFIV will be the most popular ranbat, I will use the number of entrants as the top score. FOr example, with 33 players, first place gets 33 points and last place gets 1 point. Then I thought about the players who will tie and how that is to be handled. If multiple players tie, they will be awarded the highest score in that block of scores. For example, 4 people all go 2 losses and out. Instead of having to figure out who is last place, second to last, etc., each player will be awarded 4 points, which is the highest number of points in that block of scores.

    SSFIV will determine the number of points in the other ranbats as well. This will reward players who participate in multiple ranbats and will also equalize the final results. As an example, if 4 people play in the KoF XII ranbat, first place will earn the same number of points as the SSFIV winner (33pts) and last place will earn 30 points. I'm open to suggestions on scoring but this is the best method I've come up with thus far.

    At the very least, please add the players in your immediate bracket.

    I'd like to participate but the last tournament I had to forfeit due to lag issues. I got a new connection since then, but it can only get so good given the geographical distance. US dtoiders I've played so far in Supa have been red/orange connections, playable but not really great (played nilcam just now btw). so, we could either set a minimum connection quality level (even if this keeps me and others out of the tournament), or create a set of rules for laggy/dropped matches, or keep this thing stateside altoghether, just as long as we agree straight away so we don't have to worry about it mid-tourney.

    in any case, PSN: Shinryu108
