Since Legacy starts at noon that day chances are I can't partake in this untested bound-to-be-funny format. That said, after seeing your banlist I will put together something from a favorite old character and see how it goes.

I actually think starting this later in the day Thursday (after legacy) and doing top cuts later in the day Friday (after teams) would get you the most participants.

I like the time of the event. Be cuz it allows me to not get caught in the Jasco Games Trap. Would love to see a ban list ASAP do that I can throw a deck together.

You should elaborate on the trap. Are you insinuating that the Legacy tournament might not start until after noon on Thursday...? If so, wouldn't the time of this event actually mean you would be stuck in the trap?

I am excited to play this! But if it interferes with Legacy its gonna be a no-go sorry. I am interested in seeing what the ban list is. I will throw something together either way.

As Phil described to me, it's that if you play in every single Jasco Event (because they take a long time or never start on time or whatever I forget what he said) that you will never have enough to walk around and see the convention. This event would kinda be a middle ground for the people who want to see the convention while getting to play some UFS

Didn't realize this would conflict with Legacy, and I've got to play legacy.

Basically, if I ain't playing Legacy I will play in your event. I will probably build a deck for it regardless and if someone who isn't in legacy wants to run it (cuz I am still playing Legacy) then they can have at it!

I think you need to ban Vega **, Gill*, and any other 8hs character (maybe even Leona, or espeically Leona due to slicekicks).

How are you handling reprinted shadowar promo characters?

playing as newest version only or as 2 seperate characters?

HypeMan!
07-31-2012, 01:43 AM
Since the general tournament rules consider the latest version of a card the definitive version, I'd say newest version/errata only.

Also, way to ban 3-5 characters I would play :P you cur.

Those characters are right out. They are reprinted with 5 point water marks.

Okay then, no reply to my suggestion. Let it be known I will build and play Vega ** then :)

After thinking about it more, I really like this format. It solves so many problems and issues that long time players and new players have been having with standard. Old players get to play the characters that they started playing the game with, new players get to play Street Fighter and SNK characters with their current card pool, and, at least on paper, I feel like the characters provide more than enough depth on their own to give juice to symbols that need it. IE Water and Order and some of the weaker standard symbols but throw an Ibuki or a Tycho in front of one and you are immediately viable based on your characters power level. If tested enough, I feel like this could be a fun alternative to extended (which should be on the way out). What do you guys think? Would you enter an ODNT tourney if there was a card on the line?

YES! No doubt about it. XD

I have been wanting to try it out over here, but not a lot of people play anymore in Puerto Rico.

Go for it. It's kind of like the Wild West of UFS where there are barely any rules. Be ready for my Zass***

I think the List on Page 1 is "in addition to" characters already on the banned list, no? Otherwise...prepare for a heaping of broke sauce. Bring your antacids.

Ibuki doesn't have the completely ridiculous Red Lotus of the Sun synergy, and the format also lacks ridiculously powerful foundations like BRT that force people to play lots of commit effects to walk into her R.

The posted banned list is the entire list -- that's why, for example, Hugo-3 is still on there. There are likely mistakes of omission, but we'll find out ^^

Just a reminder, you can play other old characters as part of your deck.

Well not necessarily. Remember that Torn Hero was errata'd into that it doesn't respond to an ability being played, but a card being committed. All in all, play and test! :D

I approve of this if only for Cody funtimes.

But I still have to ask, why ban Ibuki4 and NOT the one that's already on the banned list? I guess I'm not seeing the brokenness, but then I don't necessarily feel like Morrigan2 is that bad either.

Pack Seth? As in "I neuter your attacks and Power of the Edge your blocks just by existing" Seth?

Loved that guy. Easily one of the most underrated.
