I'm not sure actually... I thought the US release was like 2 days before. Whatever, 2 weeks from the latest release that any of us are part of? I'm assuming that we only need either 2 weeks from PAL or US release. It'll be fun though. .
Heh, well maybe we will have an advantage? Though, after 2 weeks everyone should know their favorite character off by heart, and know the various signs of an incoming ultimate jutsu, which are the only way to avoid them this time around I believe. Also: Killer Bee has a killer awakening yo! Seriously, he can transform into 8 tails mode and go around as that octopus thing. EPIC. But... I'm still sticking with Itachi probably.
I'll probably pick Itachi too, at least for one of my characters I just hope his Mangekyo Sharingan-mode isn't as annoying and overpowerful like in the first game...
Anyways, for the tournament, I propose we each pick three characters who to fight with, then each of us will have three matches against one opponent Let's say I pick characters 1, 2 and 3 and same with the foe, so the matches will be like:
I think that certain Supports will be more powerful than others. It was like that in the last game, and I very much doubt that they can balance them perfectly. I think it should be three battles, and you can choose to change your team in between any two matches, to adapt your playstyle, although the enemy will is able to do the same. Also prevents anyone from a random vs. that will be horribly unbalanced because of character's abilities. Like Gaara vs. Itachi/Neji/Hinata, in the last game because he was edging on too slow to dodge meaning that you had to have very good reflexes to dodge. Should also be more fun as well as we will see more and greater variety in the matches. Then again, people could just be the same team again and again, because that's the team they know and are ready to use.
