Apologies for the tradiness for this Week 2 update. Took a mini, well-needed beach vacation this past weekend. Het, even I can have fun once in a while, right??? The season is now 2 weeks old. Lots of new matches played, new members added, and two weeks closer to the STARDUST Tournament. Our 5 new members (10 total since the season began) should read carefully all the details here to catchup with the rest of the league. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
With 32 members and 64 fighters, a total of 496 matches are scheduled this season.
2. Division Standings
NOTE - division standings are based on total number of wins, not winning percentage. The more you play, the more opportunities for more wins.
3. Change of Fighters
Xenon5100 Ryu ---> Sagat (A Division)
OceanicMidnight Rose ---> Juri (B Division)
Mijoeight Evil Ryu ---> Dudley (A Division)
DarkM92 Chun Li ---> Sagat (A Division)
NOTE - All results of matches played with the previous fighter are honored in the standings. Only remaining unplayed matches can be played with new fighter. A member can change their fighters no more than two times each
during the season.
4. New Members Joining Next Week (5)
Actually, due to the lateness of this weekly update, tehese members are joining the league officially today:
Chaos_Kiwi (New York)
RammaCricket (New Jersey)
With these five new members, the total number of members will increase to 32 members total. If someone would have told me that we could have more Americas Region members this season than we had in Season 3, I would never have believed them. Thank you very much for your interest in joining the SFCCL! As a result of these new members, each fighter will now have 31 matches to play this season (up from 21 matches to begin the season). I promised everyone more matches!
Also, while I doubt we keep adding 5 new members each week, I do not enjoy all the work involved in updating this site when we have new members joining the league. It reminds me of the long days of season 1 when I had to update the whole website weekly. So, going forward, new members will have to wait two weeks before they can join the league. Any new players that sign up from today on will have to wait until July 2nd, 2012, to officially join the season. After that, every two weeks I will open up the league for new members. All players that signed up will be notified of this waiting period.
5. Next Live Tournament: STARDUST TOURNAMENT
Where: PS Home (Mansion Garage)
We are 2 weeks from the first live event of the season, the STARDUST Tournament. Remember that this event is exclusive to the top ranked members in Battle Points for each of the 39 characters. Keep playing online ranked matches and raise your numbers for your favorite characters. The deadline for Battle Points to qualify will be Saturday, June 30th. The following day, I will update the Battle Points one final time, and list who will be controlling each of the 39 fighters.
Live tournaments are only open to SFCCL members. Depending on how many members participate, we will first assemble PS Home in my personal space, the Mansion Garage. Personal spaces can only hold 12 people total, so if more than that are playing, we'll move to the SFCCL Clubhouse which can hold 30 people. I'll post pics of the space next week as I am still designing both spaces. Stay tuned...and get your PS Home avatar ready to go! Not waiting around for you to play on the nite of the event.
The last time I updated the Player and Battle Points was with the launch of season 4. Since then, we've had 10 new members, so the leaderboards look completely different than what they used to. For example, I had three figthers locked in so far. Now, with the new members included, I have none. Not to worry, we all have about two weeks to keep raising our online stats. Remember, even if you don't own the top spot, if the members above you on the leaderboard do not show for the live event, then the next listed member gets a chance to play the character in the STARDUST tournament. So keep playing!
Below is a list of the leaders for each of the 39 characters. Congrats to DRPEPPER20 from Texas for leading with 12 different characters.
If none of the members are present, the participating members in the event can choose to play any available fighters. If no one picks up a fighter, then the character forfeits their matches. The STARDUST Tournament is the first opportunity to earn additional 'wins' for your two figthers in the league.
6. Website Update
With the fighter changes and five new members, I've updated all schedules for all members. (Note - while all members are allowed two changes per fighter during the season, I ask of you to NOT change. Only because it forces me to re-post everyone's schedule again with the new fighter. Not fun.) Be sure to click on the schedules to see a larger, easier-to-read view. Works great on mobile devices!
I am going to make one request of all members, and I will send it out specficially via PSN message to be sure everyone reads it. Please send all match results to me via PSN message. In the past, I have offered the choice of using email, message board post, Facebook message, or PSN message. The problem with that is I have to check 5 different places to get all results. Some are repeats, but most are just one member letting me know. I don't want to miss a single match result because I overlook the post or message with tired eyes. On the PSN, all my messages are lined up for me easy to read. Also, I have a documented original copy for reference versus other palces where messages can be deleted or changed. Feel free to post all those other places for conversation or to get in contact with me. But please send me match results via PSN message only. Thank you!
No videos of any matches yet? Surprised. I have yet to play any matches (you guys are keeping me too busy with league updates!), but when I do finally start playing, I will be posting videos of all matches. So, at least there will be one video of each members playing me in a league match.
Well thats it! Sheesh...I need another vacation. Until this Friday for another udpate. Good luck!
