    Co-op cup is live, probably the coolest tournament with the best format in existence:
    1ST ROUND (10:30am - 3:00pm JPN time)
    86 teams split to 26 blocks of 3 + 2 blocks of 4.
    26 3-teams blocks will be played in round robin format.
    2 4-teams blocks will be played in double elimination format.
    28 block winners advance to the 2nd round.
    28 block runner-ups go to Play-off A.

    2ND ROUND (3:00pm - 4:30pm JPN time)
    28 1st round block winner teams split to 7 blocks.
    7 blocks will be played in single elimination format.
    7 blocks winners advance to TOP 8.
    21 remaining teams go to Play-off B.

    PLAY-OFF A (4:30pm - 6:00pm JPN time)
    28 1st round block runner-ups will pick only one player from their team to enter this round.
    28 represented players will play a single elimination tournament.
    The player who wins this 28-men tournament will carry his team to Play-off B.

    PLAY-OFF B (4:30pm - 6:00pm JPN time)
    22 teams (21 teams didn’t win 2nd round + 1 Play-off A winner) will pick only one player from their team to enter this round.
    22 represented players will split to 3 blocks to play a single elimination tournament.
    Top 3 players of each block will enter round robin final league.
    The player who wins this 3-men final league will carry his team to TOP 8.

    TOP 8 (6:00pm - 9:00pm JPN time)
    7 2nd round block winners + Play-off B winner will play a single elimination top 8.

    Super funny people are trying to avoid explicitly negative language around holofighter cause it would technically be directed at an actual person (and to avoid the darker side of parasocial relationships targeting them)

    Just imagining someone like "Man Luke is kawaii af"

    i guess that’s the danger of doing a fighting game with real (?) people (?) ‘s online entertainment personas.

    new forum battles when?

    Oh I'm surprised people didn't notice that cause I saw it during the closed beta.

    It reminded me a lot of GG's tension system in that you're rewarded for "aggressive" action(moving forward) and vice versa.

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    in this case it seems to most reward standing neutral, then equally reward walking forward and back, and least reward jumping

    Uhhh, walking forward recovered much faster than anyone else.

    Of course, if you start attacking, hits will also recover pieces (my presumption is the same amount a block would take off, but have no idea)

    as i think was assumed, mortal kombat is a soft reboot in the new timeline where liu kang is a god

    Mortal Kombat 1

    pre-order for Shang Tsung dlc

    september 19

    based on the FAQ it looks like Assists will be a new gameplay component, named Kameos

    So I was wondering how they would pick between Liu Kang's ending and Shang Tsung's ending and I'm guessing they did the multiverse thing where you have a timeline where both of them won.

    Capcom released some details for CapCup

    To note CapCup Prize Pool is

    1st: 1 million
    2nd: 300k
    3rd: 200k
    4th: 100k
    5th: 10k(it goes all the way to top 16 but I only wanted to show the severe drop-off at 5th)

    As far as qualifiers go
    Tha

    Online

    Online 1v1 tournaments held in 18 regions worldwide.
    The winners of these regional tournaments will all earn a spot at Capcom Cup X.

    OfflineThree offline 1v1 tournaments, including the EVO Championship Series.
    The winners of these tournaments will all earn a spot at Capcom Cup X.

    World WarriorFive open tournaments will be held in each region where players can earn points for participating.
    The five regional events will culminate at a regional final featuring the top eight players from the local leaderboard.
    The winners of these regional finals will all earn a spot at Capcom Cup X.

    Last ChanceOffline 1v1 tournament held just before Capcom Cup X. The winner of this tournament will earn the last spot at Capcom Cup X.

    So there are 48 total slots for Capcup

    What I gather was

    Online = 18

    Offline = 3 tournaments + Evo + Evo Japan = 5

    World Warrior = 18

    LCQ = 1

    (That's only 41 so I'm guessing some regions will have extra online events)

    This is very interesting I'm guessing now there are only 4(5 if you count LCQ) tournaments where you are guaranteed a slot for winning. Everything else is a leaderboard system.

    Also so many slots being regulated to online is interesting to me. On one hand it will give people who can't travel a chance to compete. On the other hand it will have to be heavily monitored.

    Interesting stuff nonetheless

    I'm too fucking stupid for this shit. I'm going back to sword and punch ladies.

    EDIT: I didn't get that the little numbers were the quantity of each spell in the set. I understand now, but probably still not a character for me.

    it's very funny that they don't even bother listing all the spells. they're just like "fuck it dude, look it up on your own time."

    Ugh, the SF6 Beta is not recognizing my controller at all.

    The demo had no issues whatsoever (it's XInput) but here it's not picking up anything.

    EDIT: Fixed. Apparently windows had completely "forgotten" about my stick for some reason between yesterday and today.

    That's weird. I'm using my old 360 stick in the beta with no problems.

    Damn, I hadn't felt this excited about a fighting game in a while. SF6 really does push my buttons in both positive and negative edge.

    Edit: Playing Ken for the beta, but really want to get to play Lily and Marisa.

    I'm just happy I'll have options soon.

    I am at the point where I don't really want to play anything that doesn't have good online anymore.

    So my only real options are MK11, Strive, and a slew of fighters that only 100 people play consistently.

    I'm hoping the SF6 open beta is like the last SF5 beta and they unlock more characters before the end of the weekend because I really miss playing a grappler.

    Also, you can definitely tell who's been grinding the cracked beta. Like, really tell.

    I didn't think it would bug me this much since it's a beta and not the full release, but I really want to not be at work right now so I can play Street Fighter. How're the servers doing with the East Coast folks home from work/school/whatever?
