Capcom Street Fighter Competition - interest thread

Ok guys, we're thinking of running a fighting game based tournament. I've had a word with the people at work, and Capcom are happy to be associated with this, and will even help out in terms of promotion and giving us some prizes (not sure what yet though). :thumbsup:

Before we post up anything official, I thought it would be worth finding out what interest we'd have from people here. Obviously it would also be open to any new members as we'd hope that this would get some interest in VGF elsewhere. We'd hopefully also be running some streams of the fights too.

However before we put anything concrete together we need to decide on a few things. The competition would be in a knockout format I would have thought rather than a league (unless the general consensus differs). The big question we have to answer is what specific game we are going to choose to use for the tournament? Obviously it has to be a Capcom title. I think the preference for Capcom would be Streetfighter x Tekken as that's their latest release, however unless people are going to go out and buy it (£24.99 if you get it through from me if you're interested! :thumb up: :rotfl: ) I doubt we'll have enough people with that title to be able to do it, unless we are going to draw in lots of new people to take part.

Anyway, if you're interested, could you stick your name down below, together with what SF title you have. The choices as far as I can see (the most recent SF titles) would be:

Super Streetfighter 4
Super Streetfighter 4: Arcade Edition
Streetfighter x Tekken

Once we have an idea as to how many people want to take part and what game we are going to choose, I can go back to the guys here and put a proposal to them.

Cheers! :thumbsup:

Well you have SF4 (the original), then Super SF4 which has more characters and other slight changes, then SSF4: Arcade, which has a better online system and more characters. That's what I believe anyway.

I got SF4 and SSF4. If it's one of those two, you may as well just send me the prizes now :lol:
Hmmm, we'll see mate! :thumb up: *






*by that comment I am in no way implying that it will be me, as I am proper shit at SF games, despite working for the company that makes them! :rotfl:

I'm naff but well up for this.

Feel free to sub me a copy of SFXT if you want as well Hoo... :p

I've read quite good things about it tbf - seems to be a good game - liking the idea of 2vs2 - reminds me of SFEX3.

If it's the same release as what will be in the stores then I'll be very interested in buying a copy and taking part - I'll probably trade it in at a later date once I get bored :lol:

Liking the idea of it being a Capcom associated competition too.

Baldy, not 100% sure how the lobby system works as to be honest it's been a while since I played SF. If we need a host (which I doubt) or if you can have spectators, it might be worth you having a copy so you could do some streaming etc. Sure I'll be able to lend you a copy for the duration of the tourney.

I dont think you can have spectators if it the same as ususal fighting games. Usually you just log on against that person and you play it.

Going to hard to find out results though as your going to have to trust people if you cannot have spectators. Might be best to ask people at work tomorrow Hoo how the multiplayer works.

not sure how much detail this picks up but i remembered something about replays of matches when I had ssf4 had quick search and found this:

http://www.capcom-unity.com/s-kill/blog ... de_update_

here is the main section i am thinking about:
Replays
Replays are generated straight from the Championship Mode tournaments. The top 5000 Championship Point leaders will be given the option to upload a replay, which are then available for anyone to watch. Everyone on both X360 and PS3 will have be able to watch any of the replays on their platform, but there are also some system-specific extra features on the replays:

On PS3, viewers can watch your replay and vote in real time according to characteristics like “beautiful” or “funny.” For the nerds, you can vote once every 30 frames (that’s 2x a second!), although there is a cap to avoid total vote spamming. Replays will be ranked according to the user-submitted reviews, making it easy to find the flavor of replays you want to see.

On X360, you can’t vote on the matches, but you can watch and then save a number of your favorites. While watching your saved matches, you’ll also have the option to turn on input commands (just like the Training Mode option), so you can see the gritty details of exactly what button and joystick inputs the top players are using to win.
