Giant Bomb P4A Tournament (PS3)
Hello, everyone. Now that the console version of Persona 4 Arena is just one month away from finally being released, I've decided that I should post this thread in order to gauge interest for a Giant Bomb community tournament that will take place from Friday August 10th until Sunday August 12th. All skill levels are welcome and this tournament is open to anyone across the world, but it will only be open to PlayStation 3 users.
- The tournament will be played in a double elimination format, so players will need to lose a match twice to be eliminated.
- Matches will be best 2 out of 3 rounds for 99 seconds each round. Winner will be best 2 out of 3 matches.
- Semi-finals (Losers and Winners bracket) and finals will be best 2 out of 3 rounds for 99 seconds each round. Winner will be best 3 out of 5 matches.
- A player that loses a match is allowed to switch characters, however a player who wins must choose the same character as his previous match.
- If a player drops during a round, it is up to the opponent to decide if he agrees to do a rematch or not.
- Saving a replay of your matches is recommended, because if there is a dispute between two players as to who actually won and no one provides proof, I'll have to disqualify both of the players for the sake of fairness.
Tournament starts on Friday, August 10th and ends on Sunday, August 12th. Instead of doing it during a single day, I spaced it out to make things less erratic and more accommodating. Specific times have yet to be determined as I'm not sure how long I should put a delay for between tournament rounds. I'll make another organizational thread upon the dawn of the tournament.
Official Challonge sign-ups will be open on August 9th from 5:00 PM EDT / 2:00 PM PDT to August 10th, 12:00 PM EDT / 9:00 PM PDT. So players should arrive and sign up on the page before the limit or else they won't be included in the bracket and won't be able to participate in the tournament. Signing up doesn't take long to do at all, so this shouldn't be a problem.
I'll post the sign-up page on August 9th and the bracket will be posted after the sign-up page is closed.
