[Tournament] Fantasy Strike International Open 21/10


#1

Alrighty folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Fantasy Strike’s first online tournament.

It will be held on the 21st of October (for Americans/EU, 22nd for people with a more Eastern time zone).
1pm PDT, 4pm EDT, 8pm UTC, 7am AEDT.


Here are the rules:
One day.
Single elimination.
Best 2 out of 3 games (of the best out of 7 rounds).
Standard counterpick (loser of a game may switch characters, winner must stay the same).


Indicate your interest in this thread, so I have a good guide for numbers.
However, the tournament will be run through the official Fantasy Strike Discord channel.
So if you haven’t already, create a Discord account and head on over using this link.
Arrive in the Discord about a half hour before the start time, I’ll take sign ups and generate a bracket, hopefully we can start on time.

Obviously since we’re going to have people from around the world, we’re going to have lag. The netcode is good, but some connections are just awful, and the game still isn’t fully optimised. By signing up you accept that some matches are going to be less than stellar.
Think of it like a stress test for the code.


IMPORTANT
Please make sure you have tested friend matches before the tournament, as there are a few known issues with them. If you’re unable to friend match, well, it’s going to be very difficult to play in the tournament!
If you need people to test with, there are heaps of friendly people in the Discord to test with, and also a Steam group and a thread for Steam friends.


I am also looking for someone with a good internet connection, preferably American side of the world, and some streaming experience to help me out, as if I try to stream it might be awful and laggy. So if you’re interested in that, let me know. It would mean not being able to participate in the tournament though.
If I don’t get anyone, I’ll still attempt to stream, but I can’t guarantee any good results.


Above all, since this is online and not observable, be honest, be fair, have fun. I hope this is a great time for all.
Strike on!
