    And I have no idea what happened with those raging demons. I always hold up when I see they're coming, but Sol said I could've jumped over them and didn't. Weird.

    Yeah, it LOOKED like you would be able to jump over them but you couldn't...twice. That's bizarre.

    There was a decent amount of input delay. It definitely threw off timing for both of us.

    The raging demons were just strange. I usually use d.mk to buffer into it and screwed up both times. Especially that last one where I fireball FADC into raging and accidentally stick out my foot.

    I had two victories due to flukey raging demons and he missed a ton of overhead into jab combos, most likely due to our input lag. I missed almost all of my tatsu into FP--> demon flip but that doesn't really effect me as much. Honestly, I'm pretty sure if there wasn't lag James would have won.

    Eh – the lag did throw me off a bit but it doesn't make up for the other mistakes I made. I'm pretty confident that you're the better player at the moment.

    Yes, they will be happening soon. I need to get one more program back on to my new computer and I'll be 100% ready to go. As soon as that's done, I'll update the bracket to reflect all of the tourneys. I'm also still accepting requests for possible tournament ideas.

    Right now, I'm going to run the following for sure:

    -64/32 player single elimination tourney
    -16/8 team (48/24 player) team single elimination tourney
    -32 player suicide tourney
    -8 team (40 player) team league w/playoffs

    This is a lot of tourneys to run and maybe a little too ambitious. We'll see. I'll update the original posts to reflect the rules, participants, and starting times. I'd also like to try and do some single day style tourneys where everyone who wants to play meets at a specific time and plays out the tourney in a single hour.

    In all likelihood, I'll have to create a brand new thread and reserve the first five to seven posts to keep everything organized. It shouldn't be much different than what you see here though. If anyone wants to chip in art, recording matches, or is willing to help out in any other way, please PM me. I'll definitely need help keeping all the entrants in line as my PM box will probably fill up rather quickly.

    Anyways, for now just keep practicing your SF skillz. The tournaments realistically won't be starting until the beginning of next month. That gives us two weeks to finalize all of the tournament types and set up a strict but fair set of rules to keep things running smoothly.

    What is a suicide tournament? Do losers have to commit seppuku? Is it what super hardcore players say is a real single elimination tournament?

    Also, if you like I can help manage a tournament or two to take some of the administering off your hands. Preferably point based swiss systems, but anything will do.

    So do we send requests for the tourney when the rules are set up? Cause I'd love a piece of this action. Teams, no teams whatever.

    OK guys, here are the proposed rules for the upcoming tournaments.

    SET
    Spoiler:

    TSET
    Spoiler:

    SST
    Spoiler:

    SFL
    Spoiler:

    FF
    Spoiler:

    All of these rules will apply to both a PS3 and a 360 tournament. In addition, all of these rules will also apply to SF4 and HDR. Given that, we are looking at a potential of 16 tournaments, not including one day Fight Fests. This is a rather large undertaking and I'll more than likely need help in making things run smoothly. I am NOT currently asking for sign-ups yet, but rather giving everyone an idea of what kind of tournaments they have to look forward to.

    Enjoy!

    Don't do that many. Too confusing.

    I'd say vote on a singles tourney style and a team tourney style. It's still 8 tourneys total and Fight Fests here and there, but 16 is just way too many.

    It's honestly based on how many people want to sign up. The PS3 version of HDR has next to no players on this board, so in all likelihood we won't be seeing it in any form. That would bring down the number of tournaments from 16 to 12. I can honestly say that I can handle that many, but I don't want people to get too confused. Basically, I don't want HDR to get left out in the cold because I still love that game and thinks it deserves better. :)

    my two cents:

    Single elim is sort of a no brainer and I really like the idea of 1-day weekend tourneys.

    The two team themed tourney's I have my doubts with. I'm honestly not even sure we'd have enough people to form enough teams to really make it work... and considering our everyday scheduling problems even going through a single round could be an incredibly chore. Just not a fan really.

    The suicide mode or whatever sounds interesting. I could see it getting confusing but I'd give it a go.

    The league based team thing seems like it requires way too many players on a team. I'd say maybe a two man tag team scenario would be pretty interesting with each player playing each other player on the opposing team, team with the best record advances. To use your example:

    1) Taramoor > TheSuperWoot (2-1)
    2) MNC Dover < James Dekk (0-2)
    3) Taramoor < James Dekk (1-2)
    4) MNC Dover > TheSuperWoot (2-1)

    You and Tara's five games would lose out to the six wins by Dekk and Woot. Since that system could potentially die, make each team pick which player on their team would rematch for the tie breaker.

    All the tourneys sound really fun but also quite complicated. I'm definitely up for w.e though as long as people don't let them drag on unnecesserily.

    The fight fest sounds really great! Team tourneys sound pretty sick as well, I like the idea of only being able to have limited characters. Will make for varied teams hopefully with some teams going really exotic, like Dhalsim, Seth and Vega or something.

    When's signups? end of the month? We could try a fight fest tourney this weekend maybe eh?

    That's the beauty of Fight Fests, anyone can run them at any time. To maximize results, it would be best to give everyone a lead of about 5-6 days, but whatever. Simply declare yourself a leader, set up a time, take names, and make a bracket based on the turnout.

    GO GO GO!!

    I like the idea of a random character tourney, where you just flat out pick a random character for each match. And maybe you get one veto per matchup - so if you get Dan and your opponent gets Sagat, you can re-select your character for that match, but not any of the others against that player.

    I agree completely with you two. Forcing players to choose other characters is more exciting to watch and actually makes the players better in the long run. You never know how much fun you could have playing that character you once thought was awful.

    I know there was a lot of cut/paste action going on in the rules, but I did get into more specifics on dealing with long delays and connection issues. The long and short of it is this; if you want to join the SFL you are of the understanding that this will take a long time to finish, say around 16 weeks or so. The other tournaments now run on a 3 day play window, with a 2 day deadline after that. If you can't hook up within a 5 day period you are eliminated and the tournament moves on without you. While that sucks, it also moves things along and keeps it from getting stale. And when there are slow times, we just plug in a Fight Fest or two to keep everyone happy.

    I guess that when I start taking sign-ups we'll have our answers as to what we are going to end up playing.

    In the spirit of forcing people to play more characters I was going to suggest a "pick your oponent's character rule" but I think we would just see way too many Fei-Longs.
