The Official Weekly Tournament of the Forums (WTF) #4

Ok everyone, are you ready to go again? I hope so, because…

#It’s time for the Weekly Tournament of the Forums No.4!!!

To start I want to explain what this tournament is about: this is for those of us that don’t have the time to dedicate to a regular tournament, or are only available on certain times of the week, etc. It’s a flexible tournament with a longer time period where you can schedule your matches when you are available, and due to this doesn’t interfere much with everyday life. You’re essentially committing roughly 10 min a week to the tournament, and that’s it. In fact the name is a bit of a joke…kinda like " WTF do all these other tournaments always happen when I’m not available?"

Here are the rules:

Each round of this tournament will take place each week until the tournament is over. Participants will be required during each week to arrange their match, First to 3 wins, sometime during the week and post the results to the Ultra-combo forums in the official tournament thread. If an arrangement cannot be made within the week a judgement call will be made on who advances. When the week is over (midnight CST Thursday night/Friday morning), the next round will begin.
The winner of a match is locked into his character choice, and a player can only change characters to counterpick after a lost match.

#The prize will be a $40 Xbox gift card/code
If you are outside of the US you will need to change the region of your XB1 to redeem it.

#Recording and posting a video of the match is not required but is highly encouraged.
Recording your matches and posting them here makes the tournament more fun. If anyone needs any help recording and posting matches, several of the regular participants can help, myself included, so just let us know & we’ll get you going.

Here’s a quick tutorial I made for the last tournament:

Edit: Keep in mind though there have been updates since I made this…recording on XB1 is a bit easier now.
During gameplay if you hit the “home” button you’ll see a prompt that says "Press “view” for Game DVR, and if you do it’ll bring up a menu that will show various recording options. The “start recording” option will record up to 10 min of gameplay, and the other options will give you at least 5 min.

Ok…with all of that out of the way, here is the sign-up link:

And here’s the bracket:

#The tournament will start on May 5th
and each round will start the following week, so you have until 11:59pm Thursday Central U.S. time to get your matches in. If the bracket fills up we’ll go ahead and get a jump-start on week 1, and by all means you can advance up the bracket early if your matches become available. You don’t have to wait until the start of that week. In fact, this also is highly encouraged as it keeps the tournament from dragging, especially near the end.

Before the start of the tournament all the matchups will be decided via a online randomizer, so don’t go off of what the bracket says who your opponent is going to be before that, as it’ll just fill in names as people sign up.

#Also If you participate, go ahead and sign up for the Ultra Combo Weekly Tournament of the Forums club on XBL.
That way it will make it easier to find and connect to your opponent.

There are 32 places available. It’d be nice if we can fill them all up, but if not, eh…we’ll roll with it.

A couple of quick points:

  • With the numerous ways of communicating possible with opponents there needs to be a standard, and with this tournament being “of the FORUMS” you all participants need to keep an eye on this thread to stay updated on the happenings with the tournament. This was a bit of an issue with the last tournament, as several participants wouldn’t communicate issues they were having setting up a meeting time with their opponents until the very last day of a round.

  • When communicating to your opponent, be courteous in the way you handle it. Set a specific meeting time, then send a message to see if they’re ready to start the match, then send your game invites. Don’t just look to see if your opponent is online and then start spamming game invites to them. Be considerate of their situations. And while this is not enforceable on an instant-to-instant basis I will keep this under consideration when making judgement calls on who advances in the case that players don’t meet their deadlines.

  • Unlike other tournaments, this tournament has typically lasts a couple of months, and while scheduling conflicts aren’t always foreseeable, participants need to understand when they sign up they will need to be able to set aside the 10-20 minutes each week for the duration of their time in the tournament. If you feel like this will be a problem, I recommend that you don’t sign up.

And with that, welcome to the WTF#4, and I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I’m going to leave it up, but I did edit the OP…the Game DVR stuff has been simplified quite a bit now, so I didn’t see much of a need to adjust it, especially since the recording to PC section is still relevant.

I hear that. Diaper duty throws all kinds of kinks into plans. Back in 2013 I was watching E3 and I completely missed KI’s announcement due to my son having a diaper that…let’s just say it took quite a bit longer than usual to clean up. :confounded: KI history in the making and I missed it. And it was the only part of that E3 that I missed.
