Ranbat 1.3

Hey everyone. This weeks ranbat could not finish because of a broken button. We will continue with the remaining matches next ranbat unless the remaining players can agree on a date to meet up and finish.

As for the issues around rematches, I want everyone to know that there will be no rematch unless both sides agree. It is unfair to grant rematches when players play through the match without saying anything. I'm sure if the person requesting the rematch won they wouldn't be asking for the same thing. In this case it is Dickson and Chris, sorry guys but there will be no rematch. It is unfair to Samir who played fairly to earn his victory. For next time, as soon as the buttons or joysticks are broken and you think its not appropriate to continue then stand up and stop.

I hope to conclude this ranbat soon. Some videos will be up soon (we took quite a bit of footage)

Just a reminder to everyone that Ranbat is happening again this Friday. As a step towards a better and more organized tourney, the tourney's goal this week is to start at 7:30, no later. People who arrive late may get a spot but there is no guarantee so please plan your Friday night accordingly. And another note, if any player has an issue with the ranbat or another player (including me) please address it without being disruptive to other players (this includes shoving like elementary kids) especially if you're looking to stay around until the end of the season. Let's make sure the ranbat is a fun tourney where everyone can get better or just dick around.

See everyone this Friday at 7:00 (Registration closing at 7:30)

One more thing, I want to confirm to everyone that you can indeed change characters.

Turnout was great! Although I was only there for a little bit I can tell this ranbat thing is here to stay, even though some people need to grow the fuck up. Otherwise see everyone next week! Videos of top 4 are below. For the next ranbat all matches will be recorded and we'll just make a video with highlights of the ranbat.


Finals - Chris (Akuma) vs Louie (Urien) Part 1
Finals - Chris (Akuma) vs Louie (Urien) Part 2

Semi-Finals - Chris (Akuma/Ibuki) vs Samir (Yun/Ken)


All ranbat participants please take note that we will run a team (teams of two) ranbat after the next one. The teams will be randomly drawn so all the 'top' players won't group and ruin our fun. Of course this isn't the best way to solve unfair teams but I think this is the best way to ensure only a few people bitch at me instead the whole crowd.

Thank you to everyone who joined. Chris managed to get the win once again and is leading the overall rankings! It was also great to see new players attending; there were 10 new entries this time! Keep practicing for the next ranbat; I hope to see you all there again.

Hopefully next time the 2nd machine will be working so that the tournament can progress much faster. I sincerely apologize to the players that had to wait so long for their turn. Thanks for your patience and cooperation.
