2011 Fortnightly Ranking Battles

A new year and a whole heap of NZism events to look forward to! NZism will be continuing with the fortnightly ranbats at Giga on a Friday night in addition to other tournaments which will be announced at a later date. We plan to include games such as BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and Marvel vs Capcom 3 this year, in addition to continuing support for SSF4. It is not clear at this stage if the new games will also have double elimination brackets, like SSF4, or if we will be providing something else, like round robin, single elimination brackets or casual setups. Other games may also be supported, depending on their popularity and availability. BB:CS is likely to be run on PS3 while MVC3 will be on Xbox360.

Games Played
Super Street Fighter IV
Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Blazblue: Continuum Shift

Cost
As previously, the cost remains at $10 dollars, regardless of what games you want to play. Newcomers are given free entry for their first time to encourage people to come check out the ranbats, so if any of you regulars see someone down at the arcade or want to bring a friend along that’d be great!

Where
Ranbats will be held at Giga Internet Cafe, Level 2, 65 Wakefield Street, Auckland Central.

When
The ranbats typically run from 6pm through to 10pm and will be held on the following dates (subject to change)
28th January, 11th 25th February, 25th March, 8th 23rd April, 20th May, 3rd 17th June, 1st July, 12th 26th August, 9th September, 7th 21st October, 4th 18th November.

SSF4 Ranking Battle Format
Based on feedback from people within the community and similar events happening overseas we have decided to change the format of the ranbats to increase the competitiveness of the events and to prevent scaring off newcomers!

We will run two separate brackets with a promotion/demotion system. The top players within the community will all be put into the ‘top-tier’ bracket (16 players max) and the remaining players will be in the ‘low-tier’ bracket. Players who win the ‘low-tier’ bracket will be promoted to the ‘top-tier’ bracket and conversely, players from the ‘top-tier’ bracket that fail to win games will be demoted to the ‘low-tier’ bracket.

Initially the players will be split based on past tournament and ranking battle results. Newcomers will always be put into the ‘low-tier’ bracket. Under certain circumstances, you may not get promoted or demoted, this is completely up to the organisers.

Q&A
What do I need to bring to ranbats?
Arcade sticks are always welcome, we usually don’t have enough of these! Xbox360s aren’t usually required however if you are able to bring one along, please let me know so if we’re short for an event for whatever reason I can get in touch with you.

How do the casual setups work?
It’s fairly straight forward, find someone you’d like to have a set with (best of 3 games, best of 3 rounds), sit down and play. Once the set is over, both players get off. The ranbats is not an arcade, winner doesn’t stay on! This is so everyone gets a fair amount of games and to promote discussion between players. If you lose in the double elimination bracket, this is a great way to run it back.

That should be it, feel free to post your thoughts or questions below. At the first ranbats of this year we'll be doing the draw for a copy of MVC3, so make sure you're there!

It's pretty simple how we've split the brackets. I've drafted up a table with results from 2010 ranbats (both seasons) and tournaments (nationals and christmas damager) and ranked everyone based on those. The top 16 are in the top tier and everyone else is in the low tier.

However, there were some people (such as Kevin and iMagneto) that didn't make it into top tier because they don't often attend ranbats, but because they [edit]placed well[/edit] in a NZism tournament I've put them into the top tier bracket anyway. So we have about 20 people in the top tier and everyone else is in the lower tier.

Now lets say I enter a ranbats and beast everyone in the lower tier, I'll get promoted to the top tier and someone who lost both their games in the top tier will be demoted to the bottom tier. Hope that's clear?

Man marvel gonna bring heaps of newcomers i bet. LIke sf4 when console release. I mean blazblue even brought some newcomers and everyone i know never even heard of it. I can't wait for marvel mane.

And that's a good format. Except that makes it sound like there's gonna be heaps of people there lol. I mean wasn't there 16 people all together there last time lol. Well that time i was there anyway.
Bison: [to Guile] Something wrong, Colonel? You come here prepared to fight a madman, and instead you found a god?

Das Right bitch, G Weazal is GAWD!!!

Hydro

I'll do everything I can to make it to each session this season, cause it sounds like it's going to be dope.
Looking for to testing the metal against you all. C U there :)

Skullator

Some more Auckland missions by the sounds of it, keen.

karizzma

Cant wait for this. Really like that S/A tier format, reminds of what I heard Valle was doing over there in the USA for his ranbats. Are there prizes for coming first etc?

Rorooze

We're trying to come up with some prizes for ranbats, without another new game on the horizon we can't rely on the raffle idea like last season. Once we have the details it'll be posted in this thread!

Yeah the S/A tier thing should be good, people can still mix it up on the casual setups if they wanted to play someone that wasn't in their tier as well, so no one should really miss out on anything!

In terms of prizes, let me put it this way. It's not a yes, but it's DEFINITELY not a no.

2011 is the year we start getting ambitious. It's gonna be a good time to be a fighting game fan in nz.

Get Hype people. That's not a request. That's BIRRY fucking WONG TELLING you to get hype.
<Smoof>
He's the hero NZism deserves.
But not the one it needs right now.
So we'll hunt him.
Because he can take it.
Because he's not our Hero.
He's a Niuean Guardian.
A watchful poster.
BIRRY WONG.
