PERSONA 4 ARENA ONLINE REGIONAL TOURNAMENT 1
After some trash talk from the Californian residents on the site, I have decided I will be hosting this tournament at some point during the Summer, preferably one month after P4A is out in the US.
So be sure to get as much practice in because the date won't be extended because you skipped a few training sessions!
Every forum member residing in a state from the Atlantic North to the Pacific West are eligible.
First and foremost I would like to acknowledge that I do know that a lot of factors can cause the connection of online matches to be terrible; from bad netcode, to flat out bad internet connections. Therefore if you have a bad internet connection, I would recommend you upgrade sometime soon if you wish to participate in this tournament. If this section didn't make it clear enough THIS IS AN ONLINE TOURNAMENT!
As of now Playstation 3
and Xbox 360
are allowed in this tournament to fit the competitors situation. I'm not going to urge anyone to go buy a new console but I do expect you to have the game you're participating in.
The tournament will be streamed by Coopa.
. This step is very simple, just post that you would like to participate and state which region you represent/console(s) you will be playing on and I will add the information to the relevant section. Please post your Playstation Network ID and or Gamertag as well.
Brackets will be posted on Challonge and results will be posted on Mayonakamidnight.

How the tournament will function
Players who are in the tournament will wait in the Stream Chat, and the first 3 matches X vs Y, A vs B, and C vs D should be in the lobby awaiting their turns.
Matches are 2/3 double elimination. Winner must stick with the same character. Loser may choose to change their character.
A vs B play their first match. A wins the first match. -> Players in the lobby must skip their turn (assuming there is a skip feature) so that A vs B can play again. If A wins, Players A and B leave the lobby. Players X vs Y then play. If Player B wins, players must skip their turn so A and B may finish their final match.
This continues until the lobby is empty, then the next matches and participants are called up from the chat and put into the lobby, then process continues so on and so forth until the tournament is finished and a winner is declared for the P4A Online Regional Championship.
This is a battle for the title of "Best Region" (and then some). That means that the participants under your region's section is your "teammate". So as long as someone from your region wins, you win the title. I have divided the participants into a specific region so no one faces anyone from their respective region in the first round
. Meaning, you very well may end up facing someone from your region in the losers brackets or even in the winners finals.
Two separate tournaments will be held. One for PS3 users and one for Xbox 360 users.
As of now the tournament is double elimination, if we hit the 60 range then it will be single elimination.
