Potential Yellow Stance Only Tournament

Sorry this has taken so long, I have been quite busy of late, but this is not an Official post, merely an enquiry. Who would be interest in a yellow stance only tournament; I have had several conversations with both red and yellow users. Being as the Academy predominantly teaches Yellow stance it would seem that a lot more people are more confident using the stance are therefore comfortable. Just as a matter or interest would anyone be interested in taking part? All members of the JA are welcome ranked or otherwise, as well as those in the Aurochs and a post will appear on their site in due course. If there is enough interest a post will go up for the official sign up relatively soon after. I know it seems fairly repetitive but I want as much notice and time for people to check the forums as possible as the last Red tournament people didnít realise it was on until it was too late.

Anyway let me know.

Noooooo Red is taking over!

No Va'kion, this thread was merely a test to see who would be interested. If anything does become official I shall, of course, let you know. :)

Pfft, it doesn't have to be so formal or pre-arranged - just propose some dates and see if people can show up for them, and have a best of 3 between people who show up, random draft of sorts. Fun competition, nothing serious, activity, woot

looks like there is about 12 interested so far. Which is re-assuring. Never the less, this was merely for indication purposes, nothing more. :)

You know me, I have no competitive mind at all...

But it sounds like fun and if it helps with the Activity, then why not! :)

I can attest to it's success - personally, I don't know what happens from the moment I pick up my saber to the moment I set it down. No longer am I a calm, collected and considerate individual, but I become a medium through which a raw, savage and spark-thirsty force is channeled, a unrelenting and overwhelming thirst. Even when all opponents have lost the will to battle, or even do not have the capacity to continue battle due to spark-loss/dismemberment, the hunger is there, until the saber is released... or pried from my cool, defeated hands

No mercy, no respite. That is 'pwnage' style. It is not stance exclusive!

...though, I did vote red, just to give it a leg up within the academy

Another Tourney... oh boy Cuthalion is busy... ?

Personally;

Well due to my interests are totally at somewhere else in JKAbase than at competitive playing. This is why I'm not going to practice in any tournaments. Well I never say never, if It isn't a principle.

But for this tournament, It is kind of pointless to me, because I would pwn you all, even when I'm loosing <333

Community Pointview:

Sure, Activity *thumbs up* and go for it... But please don't push yourself over the edges, Cuth, Tourneys are rather heavy to arrange on time...

But yeah I bow once again for your awesomeness if you have energy to arrange this tournament... :D

oh masta, i just mean it might be more fun for the new player to fight vs pure yellow instead of being out of their element fighting let say...all the other stances in jka. :confused:

presumably, fighting in and vs. a stance that they're familiar with will give the average academy player a better chance to put forth more of a competitive fight (maybe landing a swing or two). though i must go on record to say a pure anything fight is, imo, ridiculous and impractical. that's why i made my earlier remarks about how Cuth's stance only tourneys are novelties.

But I've come around on the idea!

it's no secret yellow is the preferred stance among the academy players and having a pure yellow tourney would in theory lead to more entrants or at least a better contested tournament. i don't think the outcome will be any different, but at least it's not set in stone like the last one, rofl (JAA fighting each other all the damn time).

i'm curious as to how this one will end up, provided that all you yellow specialists join.

Yeah. i'm calling you guys/girls out. Virtue and his purple cyan family. Jaina and the D'kanas. And all you other dudes i can't name off the top of my head. All of y'all are the same anyway...

If yellow v. yellow was what made the game fun for you, great! come back and enter this thing.
you can keep ur stance change button on the l key.

edit: i will only enter if tallepyon does.

If that is your goal, why not make a tournament where anything goes? (as Sauce suggested)


if anything goes, the noobies would not stand a chance and would be deterred from joining. if only pure yellow was allowed they'll be more inclined to join because they'll supposedly not get beaten as badly.

I really don't think this to be very likely.

It presupposes that these kind of people only really play to win, and that they'd be disinclined to participate in events they wouldn't stand a chance of winning. Not winning tournaments would naturally follow from being less experienced though, so the people (in addition) would have to think of themselves as "not less experienced" in order to consider themselves capable of winning a tournament.
Õ mean, you can hardly win a tournament as a less experienced player unless the tournament is filled with less experienced players, so it presupposes that these people believe there are no (or few) experienced yellow stancers in the JA that will beat them up badly, which seems to be quite a stretch considering how prevalent yellow stance is in the JA.

I understand the whole idea of being in the comfort zone, but there is already quite a lot of comfort involved in just merely playing with yellow (not necessarily against it), and i can hardly imagine any player in the JA being reluctant to sign up for a tournament solely because there are no restrictions placed on the sabers/stances; although i can very well imagine players not signing up for a tournament solely because there -are- restrictions to just merely -one- saber/stance - in this case, myself for example. Saz too maybe? Probably others as well.

If Cuth's goal is to include as many people as possible (rather than just provide yellow stancers with comfort), then i'm not sure why he wouldn't want to make a normal tournament.
