    Rise and Fall - Conclusion

    Hi everyone, I want to thank all participants to have been part of my tournament which was the last one before DFFNT. Without you, I would not have been able to organize this event at all, so thank you very much. Special thanks to TheEmden, Dart and JT who gave me suggestions on how to improve some aspects of the tournament rules. I also want to thank Djqubi and everyone else who were available to TO the sets, I really appreciated the support. And of course, congratulations to the winner of the tournament, Ultimaweapon! Your dedication to the game is really impressive and I can see clearly that you worked very hard to be at that level of play. Now, for the 2nd place. Congratulations to Dart as well, you definitely gave Ultima a run for his money with that Cloud gameplay of yours. Your Cloud is on the top, and everyone can vouch for that, so you can be proud of you. Also great run Kewldude, despite the fact that you were not often active on the DDFF scene in 2016-2017 you remained solid and managed to win against dedicated players to earn that 3rd place, so congratulations too. With that said, DDFF comes now to an end, and will give birth to a new era, the DFFNT era! You can watch the final results of the tournament on the link below: http://challonge.com/55f6cfie Feel free to tell me what you have thought about the tournament, for instance your experience, the rules, what were the positive sides, what were the negative ones, etc. On a final note, thank you Hyne for allowing the community to thrive!

    Save all your replays and send them to me via DMs on Discord. If you don't know how to send replays, watch this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lefqWcmagbY&t=2s&pbjreload=10 Post your results in the following manner in this thread: Round # (Winner's/Loser's Bracket) Match 1: Player A (Character A) vs. Player B (Character B) - Stage - Winning Player Match 2: Player A (Character A) vs. Player B (Character B) - Stage - Winning Player Match 3: Player A (Character A) vs. Player B (Character B) - Stage - Winning Player Winner ~ Winning Player Score against Losing Player Tournament seeding: I gave to each participant (including myself of course) a rank according to your tournament backgrounds (if you had one), and according to your placements in the Round Robin phase for those who committed to it (naturally). Know that I prioritized top 3 placements in Majors over the number of points earned overall. I took the rankings made by high level players as an inspiration and assigned ranks by taking into account tournaments that were run until now. However, as far as veterans are concerned I couldn't be as precise as I wanted to be since I could only take tournaments from the Dissidia Community YT channel into account in addition to the recent tournaments archived in this forum. If you have any questions as to how I proceeded to assign a rank on a player in particular, please let me know on Discord. http://challonge.com/55f6cfie

    Custom DLCs are not allowed since equipping them will automatically provoke a disconnection to both players. As for your request I cannot guarantee that I will wait until November since I, too, have projects in the future. I was thinking about the start date not a long time ago and I will most likely follow my plan. However I shall see how things will unfold, so nothing is confirmed yet as long as the tournament has not started.

    Yeah I understand, but what if I don't manage to reach the sufficient number of participants once the deadline is passed? I'm all hears to find an alternative. Edit: After taking your message into consideration I will most likely announce the start date at the end of the week.

    Yeah it will be long, but the hype will be there for sure! I will announce the start date as soon as I gather enough participants

    Hey there! The idea of creating a tournament came to my mind very late since many tournaments were ran at a decent pace. I got the idea of bringing something special to my tournament because I like variety, so why not hosting one for once? Requirements North American copy of Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy (code ULUS10566 displayed on the savedata folder) PPSSPP version 1.1.1-222 32-bit (provided with the tournament package here: http://tinyurl.com/hmltue2) ZeroTier One: http://dissidia.community/topic/62-how-to-substitute-hamachi/ Discord: https://discord.gg/2D5D8Wf DC Ranked savefile: https://puu.sh/xuT0T/0b9ce188ff.rar Dissidence V4 savefile: https://puu.sh/xuj7t/945f4b59ae.rar Note: it is illegal to share a copy of the DDFF ISO here or on Discord so you have to find it by yourselves for those who do not possess it. General Rules Feral Chaos banned Counter Summons only (Scarmiglione, Cagnazzo, Barbariccia, Rubicante) 1-hit Chase rule* Breakables banned Hacked items banned (http://dissidia.community/topic/17-ddff-ai-only-accesories-hacked/) The Rift & Phantom Train banned Omega Stages banned *1-hit Chase rule: "If you chase after a chase BRV, it must be an empty chase, meaning you don't perform any additional chase attacks." However, you can perform as many chases as you want as long as you hit only once each time. Tournament Format This is a Major tournament, so you are not restricted to play on a specific day. However, once it starts I expect it to last for about one month and two weeks. I will see how it goes and extend it if necessary. I will give more details about this later on this topic. More details on this format: Round Robin for non-veteran players as a first step. The goal is to have an accurate seeding of all participants in order to make fair brackets. Double Elimination once the seedings are made Best of 3 until Semi-Finals Winner's/Loser's Semi-Finals and Finals are Best of 5 Grand Finals is Best of 7 Tournament Rules Save ALL your matches and send the replays to me via DMs on Discord Any rage-quitting behavior, be it "softly" (pressing Start > giving up the match) or "hardly" (closing the PPSSPP, etc.) will result in a disqualification from the tournament. Coin flip is mandatory to determine who begins to pick a stage Blindpicks on both sides Specific Rules Match 1: both players start playing on Official ruleset. A coin flip is necessary to decide on a stage selection. The winner of the coin flip picks a stage. Both players then send a private message with their character pick to a Tournament Organizer The TO announces the characters chosen by the players Match 2: the loser of the previous match chooses the ruleset. The winner chooses the stage. After that both players send their character picks to the TO (blindpicks still applies). Match 3: same process as match 2 List of allowed stages: Old Chaos Shrine Pandemonium World of Darkness Lunar Subterrane Kefka's Tower Planet's Core Ultimecia's Castle Crystal World Dream's End Order's Sanctuary Edge of Madness Empyreal Paradox Sky Fortress Bahamut Orphan's Cradle Pandemonium - Top Floor Crystal Tower Prima Vista List of available rulesets: Official DC Ranked: http://dissidia.community/topic/115-dc-ranked-ruleset-overview/ Dissidence V4: http://dissidia.community/topic/109-dissidence-ruleset-version-4-2306/ Keep in mind that you do not need to use your main savefile to play on DC Ranked or Dissidence V4, everything is set up on these savefiles provided above. Match Scheduling Round Robin phase must be done before proceeding to the Double Elimination phase. In other words, all concerned participants must play everyone once. This phase is made for players who lack tournament background - that way I will be able to make fair brackets afterwards. Double Elimination phase: once you know who you are facing on your next match, make sure to contact your opponent publicly or via private messages to schedule a match and come to an agreement. Round 1 must be completed within a week. Nevertheless, players on the Winner's Bracket shall get more time to schedule their matches since this path is shorter than the Loser's Bracket. Consider this as a favor for accessing and staying in Winner's. Extensions can be granted only if you give a valuable reason. Recommendation If you can play your matches early, please do not hesitate to do so. This would make the management of the tournament easier. Also, make sure to have ready builds before doing your matches to avoid any waste of time. Although you have ready builds on the DC Ranked & Dissidence V4 savefiles, you still can customize each character's skills to your liking as skill builds are personal. However be careful to pay attention to the rules of these rulesets linked above. Sign Up Format Discord Name: IG Name: Timezone: (please use GMT) Tournament Organizers Those who are not interested in participating in my tournament but want to be a Tournament Organizer are welcomed. Be it staff members or simple members of the community, anyone is appreciated. Thank you. Rewards I offer 20 US Dollars to the winner via PayPal. He will also earn the Legacy Champion tag. All participants will earn the Legacy Player tag at the end of the tournament. Deadline & Start date The sign ups will be closed on Friday, the 27th of October at 8AM GMT (London time). As for the start date, it will begin on Saturday, October 28th at 8PM GMT onwards. Be sure to make all preparations (builds, connection, etc) and please be on time, at least one hour before the tournament begins. It will prevent any unnecessary delay. Thank you.
  14. The purpose of this topic is to know if I have not missed anything regarding the issues this beta had. I have already sent my feedback to the Square Enix Support Team. You will find it below if you are interested to see its content. Do not hesitate to add things I may have forgotten to the Square Enix Support Team : http://sqex.to/MWF. This way this game will be better than ever! P.S. : Hyne talked about a way of getting matches frenquently : "like if peer to peer hosting stays, it may be good for it mm to search within region for a minute before it goes outside". I found it to be interesting and gave my thoughts about it to the Support Team in the 5th paragraph.
