View Full Version : NEXT DS DATABASE CONTEST!! DISCUSSION!

Everything below the line is irrelevant. This post was made quite a long time ago, and I thought there was good discussion that could be continued.

Anyways, we are here to discuss what games you want to play for DSDatabase tournaments, keep in mind that these could be minigames within a game, a forum game, a contest, it doesn't have to be restricted to DS games.

Anyways, I look here for suggestions, if a game is clearly unpopular, then I won't use it for the next tournament, simple. So seeing the not so many suggestions, one or two comments could make a huge difference, if you really like a game, and you speak up about it, chances are it will be a tournament game sooner or later.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Hi everybody,

With the Tetris DS Tournament finals closing in fast, we are already planning our next DS Database tournament. At the moment, we are trying to sort out the basic details of the tournament.

PRIZES
At this point, nothing is written in stone, but we are trying to get something along the lines of a few Acekard RPGs or if something new comes out (as someone has repeatedly hinted to me), perhaps that. There are no guarantees but that is what we are aiming for. If you have any other suggestions such as older flash carts, feel free to add it in this thread and we will try to pick out what the best options are for us and the winners.

GAMES
We are quite confused at the moment with the game that will be attributed to the tournament. In this point in time, all we can say is that it should be WiFi enabled. Because of this, we are starting this thread, and this poll. If you feel that a particular game should be chosen, it would help us loads if you would pick the option. Obviously try and pick games that are fair and even, and obviously fun.

NOTE: I am adding Tetris DS to the list, but I prefer not doing Tetris DS because it has been done already. So unless there is an incredibly huge amount of votes for it, I am avoiding Tetris DS.

Thanks for reading this,
PharaohsVizier

PS. Comments, suggestions, anything like that would be highly appreciated.

I'm not too sure about JUS but you can vote others, as for Pokemon, it would be insanely hard to maintain some sort of rule, that is why I don't think it would be a wise choice, especially with things like PokeSav out there.

Artanis
09-13-2007, 06:57 PM
Pokesav? I think it's for cheat
JUS is a good choise too!

PharaohsVizier
09-13-2007, 08:17 PM
I don't know how we would deal with snaking in Mario Kart, there are people who hate snakers, and some who think of it as a skill. Personally, I don't know which category I fit in, but I'd hate to set up a tourney dealing with this kind of division.

Artanis
09-13-2007, 08:39 PM
What's 'snaking'?

PharaohsVizier
09-13-2007, 09:19 PM
Snaking is when you zig zag using mini boosts.

Pretty clear that the winner is Worms Open Warfare. At the moment, the prizes are still up in the air, but AceKard team seems to be pretty good about giving some AceKard RPG's away. :)

Topspin
09-30-2007, 03:34 AM
how about two tourneys? one MKDS and one WOW, maybe we could do both, or you could just pick one.

*pushes for MKDS cus is so good at it*

recover
09-30-2007, 06:13 AM
Maybe play an opening round of WOW2, and then divide the winners to the winner bracket and the losers to the loser bracket.
The winner bracket keeps playing WOW2 and the loser bracket plays MKDS.
Then when we have a winner in both the winner bracket and the loser bracket, they'll face eachother in a WOW2 match.

Hmm... it might be difficult to divide the prices then, just a suggestion. :D

PharaohsVizier
09-30-2007, 05:51 PM
That is very complicated if we do two separate games, and I'm sure there will be those who will complain. The tournament is going to be 100% Worms Open Warfare 2. Mario Kart DS will come some other time I'm sure of it.

PharaohsVizier
10-12-2007, 01:28 AM
Unfortunately for us, AceKard team has replied, and they have told me that they have shortages with the AceKards, and to them the dealers come first. So they can only guarantee one AceKard RPG will be given out, however, over time, depending on demand and production, they said that they may provide more. The sign up list will be posted up very soon, in a day or two, once I have decided on the rules and such.

Just wanted to revive this topic and remind people that new suggestions are always welcomed as tournaments are going to continuously happen at DSDatabase. We are nearing the end of the Mario Kart DS Tournament, and preparations are already beginning for the next one. We are already on the lookout for some sponsors! :) So keep those requests coming.

Personally, I wanted to do Clubhouse Games, playing a game of Chess, but then again, that may take far too long, or be too old-fashioned. It doesn't even have to be a game!

ZzzZilla
07-16-2008, 04:09 PM
It's too bad some of the newer games don't have WFC. Doodle Hex or Jigsaw World would have been great fun, not to mention let everyone start on even footing.

Whats another popular DS wifi game??

PharaohsVizier

Apparently Space Invaders Extreme has online WiFi, I only played a bit of single player, it is really good, but I don't know how WiFi works yet. Well I know Bleach is pretty popular but it lags like hell, someone mentioned Ultimate Mortal Kombat (is it even released yet?), YuGiOh is also nice if the use of hacks to build a real deck is allowed, etc.

I'm pretty into Space Invaders Extreme now, it is pretty good.

Now, what do you guys think about Metroid Prime Hunters, is it balanced enough to avoid major conflict?

Guest
07-18-2008, 05:27 AM
Saw your post on GBATemp and thought I might pitch some ideas.

Custom Robo(best 2 of 3)
Advance Wars Days of Ruin(everybody plays same map so won't be as long)
Jump Ultimate Stars(best 2 of 3)

Or you could try something like this have a tourney where each round's game is picked randomly by using a Random Number Generator online. When you play each game once you can't play that again in another round until you play each at least once.

Hmm...lag shooting tends to be the major killer of the game. If you can lag shoot well, you can win. Also, expect people to be alt spamming tards, health pack whores, etc.
I'd go with these rules if it were to be made
Non Imperialist
First to 7/7minutes
No deathalt

Yeah...Civ Rev has wifi, but that could take years...Dragblade is very fun, but soooo much lag like 10fps online sometimes...All EA sports have lag...

O forgot to mention, some of you might want to know that besides flash carts (which I have yet to confirm), I have confirmed a few Pro Battle Styluses from our good friends at PDS Panache as a prize. Some of you might think it is a cheap kind of prize, but I'd give up a flash cart for one of those any day, they are SO AWESOME. :)

ive played Custom Robo and it was a great game... but id have to complete it again to get all the good parts..

JUMP is also a great game, but i dont think loads of people will have it.. but then again im probably wrong..

Advance Wars.. takes to long.. lol

Well, what WFC game doesn't, really?

Even more so considering the players will likely be continents apart.

So we can either find a game we can put up with, or try something else. I saw PV talking about having non-gaming competitions, like banner making and stuff. But that then brings up the matter of who will do the judging.

What I would suggest is some kind of online scavenger hunt, in the vein of URL-changing puzzles like notPron. Let's say after a week, X no. of players manage to make it through the whole puzzle-solving/trivia-finding/image-finding ordeal. (if nobody finishes, whoever gets furthest along wins.) They get to duke it out in a timed final after they are told how the clues are interrelated (say they form the lyrics to a song?).

This of course would require a lot out of our dear site admins tho :salute:

PharaohsVizier
07-20-2008, 01:08 PM

Why are we listing Spirit Caller for Yu-Gi-Oh? Shouldn't we be playing the most updated World Championship 2008?

Also I have posted another suggestion on gbatemp:

you can also do Bleach - Blade of Fate. The tournament can be ran Street Fighter style. Each match will be best 2 out of 3. Each round will be best 2 out of 3 matches. The winner needs to select the same character, but the loser will have the option to switch character if they wish.

also set a rule for "no cards."

Example:

player A selects Ichigo and player B selects Renji for the first match. best 2 out of 3. no cards.
Player A wins match 1.
match 2 player A must select Ichigo again, but player B has the option to select a different character.

Winner of the round will be determined when a player wins two matches.

07-22-2008, 12:44 PM
If you noticed, this thread is really quite old, we keep the same games since the start, mainly to keep things more organized. Of course if it is YuGiOh, we'd play the latest version.

Jump sounds better though, considering it moves quickly and can support up to four people, meaning a tournament can move much quicker.

Ummmm, we will play only 2 player matches, 4 player matches are a horrible, horrible hassle.

Out of all these...

>Jump Ultimate Stars
>Bleach DS - The Blade of Fate
>YuGiOh! Worldwide Championships 2008
>Space Invaders Extreme
>The Legend of Zelda - The Phantom Hourglass
>Bomberman Land Touch
>Club House Games (either a card game or chess)
>Tetris DS (yes... again, highly unlikely, but I love the game. )

I'm going to vote for Space Invaders. Being a jazzed up retro game, it shouldn't be too hard for everyone to pick up. It would definitely give me a reason to try the game out once, finally.

No, 4-player matches is a bad idea for Jump Ultimate Stars. It WILL run slow which will pretty much make people able to play the Dio stop time koma deck.

also if it's Bleach what rules are you going to set?

PharaohsVizier
07-29-2008, 03:50 AM
The signup will most likely run for 2-3 weeks, setting the starting date of the tournament during late August. At the moment, I'm a bit swamped, got quite a few things on my mind other than the tournament (I apologize, bad timing for me to think about my PC), so the rules have yet to be determined. Generally I take 2 days to draft up the rules and regulations (have to play a few games online, get a feel for how balanced it is, explore the game deeper than I normally would), and then discuss with a moderator (seems to always be me_too_lazy).

I will keep you posted, it should be done by the end of the week, but then again, I'm trying to finish the EZ Flash V+ review as well.

mixinluv2u
07-29-2008, 10:25 AM
not sure if this is a common problem for other people, but i seem to experience lag quite often playing Bleach online.

maybe 1 out of every 2-3 people i experience lag with. some are tolerable, but others are simply frustrating. almost all the lag mess with the timing for my comboes, and i almost have to guess with my flashsteps ahead of time instead of reacting like i normally do.

is that common with everyone else?

If I play national, it doesn't seem to lag, maybe one in every 5-8 people.

Games that should be excluded from CHG's due to cheat codes :
Ludo
Darts
Soda Shake
Bowling
Mahjong
Hearts
*any (card) game that involves chips*

Chess takes between a minute and 45 minutes depending on how good the players are, and how long they take...

I've had chess games last 3 days before (not on the DS, but with an actual chess board)

Hmmmm Chess might be too long, although it could be a one match win all sort of thing.

As for bomberman, I think there is only 1 bomberman that was WiFi capable, but the few times I did play, I remember it lagged a ton.

I think that all bomberman games have the classic bomberman in it. Never tried it on wifi. Oh how about Advance Wars Days of Ruin?

09-18-2008, 06:41 PM
Wouldn't that take a bit too long?

Well it really depends on the map you are playing on. Plus they have a time limit on each turn so you have to move fast.

Ermmmm, just a note, I plan to start the next tournament next weekend, so any suggestions would be GREAT. I think I should stay away from Advance Wars because of the fact that it can take forever, or it could go by real quick. Same with Chess, etc.

EDIT: Also, would it be wrong to have a Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournament for a site for DS stuff?
EDIT EDIT: Not exactly wise though, as the prizes for the next tourney are all Pro Battle Styluses. Brawl can wait until after.

all stylus' this time?

should be a ds game...

Zelda phantom hourglass
YuGiOh
Mortal Kombat

there's 3 that would be ok...

09-22-2008, 02:07 AM
zelda is really meh.... i can't stand the multiplayer, it is a mockery for all zelda stands for

yugioh, although i like the card game, it would be odd to sort out. how would the rules work, could everyone use cheats to get all the cards? haven't actually played the ds version

mortal kombat would rock#!@#

i like yugioh.

getting all the cards is not really cheating, it's about the same as using a completed save.
i don't think you can even connect to the people who are using a different rule set (cards allowed) as you.

cheats may allow you to have a non-standard deck size (tourney rule states that your deck needs to be at least 40 cards), or using forbidden cards like the egyptian god cards. but those are easily spotted in the tourney.

from my experience playing online i don't believe i have dueled anything that cheated. disconnecting right before they lose was more of a problem.

it would be cool to play a yugioh tourney since we can set up best 2 out of 3 and allow the usage of side-decks, which will help balance out certain deck types.

Just saw this today on VGcats. I think it would be awesome to use competitive play for the next tourney.

Hmmmm... you make a good case with the YuGiOh, but I feel that the game is far too streamlined, I was hoping for a game that anyone can pick up and play (let's face it, the amount of people that joined the last tourney was pitiful).

@Zzz - is that a DS game? I'm confused.

Again, I'm kind of trying to push towards stuff like Tetris, Club House Games, etc. Chess would be really nice XD

Jump! Ultimate Stars would be nice.

for easy pick up and play i think Clubhouse Games will be a good choice. like the connect4 you suggested. =) although i can't seem to find connect4 in my clubhouse games, did you mean connect 5? or do i still need to unlock it.

also not sure if you do choice Clubhouse Games, not sure if you want to organize it like the one on gbatemp with 3 games and 4 players per match. i thought that experience was farily enjoyable even though i got knocked out in the first round.

classic bomberman would be fun and easy pick-up-and-play, too. even though i am not too familiar with which bomberman game we should use and how the lag is online.

PharaohsVizier
09-23-2008, 10:47 AM
I have camp for the next few days, so the tournament will come right after that. And woops, I did mean connect 5.

ZzzZilla
09-24-2008, 06:07 AM
@Zzz - is that a DS game? I'm confused.

Nope, it's played on the PC with mouse (and the option to use keyboard buttons in place of mouse clicks)

It's basically Ouendan/EBA, but online (which is missing in the DS games.)

You mentioned the last time it didn't even need to be on the DS, and I think this seems like a really good compromise. It may not be on the DS, but is a clone of a DS game, and pretty darn easy to pick up.

PharaohsVizier
09-26-2008, 09:12 PM
I can see your argument, but I think it is unsuitable because of the prizes. I'll be sure to consider it the next time, but because our prizes this time are so DS orientated, it wouldn't make too much sense, imo.

ClubHouse Games... with a twist...

During entry, you give FC, Contact, and Fav Game...

player1 - 1234 - myemail@bla - chess
player2 - 2345 - email2@bla - connect 5
player3 - 3456 - email3@bla - poker
player4 - 4567 - email4@bla - hold 'em

player1 and player2 would have to play chess and connect 5, and if tied, it would be Pharaohs/me_too's choice for the third game... and so on... sounds like a good idea... i guess, lol

Sorry for neglecting the new tournament. I have good news, AceKard has signed on to sponsor our next tournament, hopefully we can clear out the details, but I know that they are giving at least 1 AceKard 2.1+ (the new better... but cheaper ones). As well, the styli are going to be part of the tournament, although dependent on how many AceKard 2.1+'s we get.

So once I get that sorted out, and such, I will set up a signup list, put down the basic rules.

As for zidane, as much as I would love to do that, I think it would be a little hard for some players as they need to know multiple games to participate, learning just connect 5 or something is hard enough. Although it might not be a bad idea, anyone have any thoughts on this? I would find it really fun to participate, but keep in mind asides from people having fun, my next priority is to have as many people join as possible.

i think mario kart would be fun

just say no snaking, if some1 snakes get him/her out of the tournament like a rule, because i do know how to snake but might be a few people that dont, and its kinda like cheating because you are using something in the game that in a way it wasnt supposed to work

how about darts in clubhouse games?

Just wanted to update you guys, I have styluses from PDAPanache as prizes, but AceKard team is also sponsoring this upcoming tournament. So once I get it all settled, we will begin. Still not 100% sure what the game is yet though.

how about Bomberman Land Touch 2? I haven't started playing that game but I think it has a 4-player battle mode over wifi (is that like the classic bomberman?), can someone confirm?
