      I'm curious if these tournaments are going to have any region requirements at all.
    7. wrekka
      I'm looking forward to this, I haven't been playing for a while, but the tournaments seems cool

      so now online modes should be complete right?

      Normally it would be time to add single player modes, together with the rest of customization items...
    9. SUGATA
      What are the “minor fixes” exactly ?

      No promised 2nd type of Team match (counting rounds)?

      Waiting for TGS...

      This weekend will be interesting. It sounds like they will attempt a variety of tournament formats in the future. They also have tournaments that are listed as either "Silver Cup" and "Gold Cup" tournaments...some screen captures posted in the first post.

      First tournament of the day appears to be not region based.
    14. ToyDingo
      :( Welp, that sucks...

      Hopefully this is just a beta thing. But I'm doubtful.

      Got to participate in the second tournament of the weekend. It was the "Silver Cup" and the matchmaking is based on similar rank.

      - You are able to enter a tournament 20 minutes before start time.
      - Once entered, it cycled me through 2-3 rooms, before I ended in a room with green and yellow bars (around 4 people was in it). The first 2-3 rooms were all red and orange connections. So there appears to be a criteria of finding the "best" connection while finding similar ranks. Many players went through the room and were cycled out.
      - By the time it was tournament start time, there was 12 people total. Half were full green connection, other half yellow and orange.

      So it was better than expected, especially since reading the experience of @Mister and @Myke at the first tournament of the weekend.

      The third tournament - "Gold Cup" is a tournament that apparently matchmakes not based on similar ranks? So maybe that will only be matching based on "best" connection. It starts past midnight from where I live, so hopefully those that try the Gold Cup tournament can share there experience here.

      I did "join" the gold tournament. However many people in the room froze up and weren't able to keep going, including me. I had to close the game to let the other participants keep going cause watching @Tricky stream I could see that everybody were just waiting for the match to be over. Once i got out my opponent was able to proceed (and the game didn't even give me my win). Also @VFnumbers got stuck like me and had to do the same, but his opponent wasn't like like mine, he had to go out too.

      So the third tournament was even worse than the first tournament for you? Were the ranks more varied?
    18. Mister
      Instead of relying on my memory it's probably best to check tricky's vod. I honestly have no idea if the ranks were much different than ours.
    19. Tricky
      @akai you can find it on my youtube live streams playlist if you want to be able to quickly scrub through it. Total shit show.
