Revolution 2018 Update 2


Revolution 2018 Blog Post 2

This is the second of Revolution blogs to help see what’s going on under the hood with the event.

Games Situation:

Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!! has been removed due to the issues with the PC version of the game. In Sakura Fight Festa we had reports of the game dropping inputs for players and this seems to be a universal issue with the game and doesn’t make the competition fun. Because of this, we’ve made the decision to remove the game and replace it with a couple more things.

We’ll be adding Fighting EX Layer to the line up instead to replace this game instead. This is more of an addition of love from the team because a majority of us are Street Fighter EX fans and this game is definitely resonates with a lot of us. In terms of managing the Gougi Decks, we’ll wait from official word from Arika on what they deem with tournament standard. If not we will just run the default ones available From the Complete SKU

The next game we are working on adding tentatively is Pokken Tournament. The only thing we are waiting for is more monitors to help with running the tournament smoothly but I’m in the process of booking a space next door in the Stratford Arts Centre to help with doing pools and have casuals on the until 9pm where we will break the set ups down for them to take back and then move Top 6 of Pokken to the sub Stream early Saturday morning while running the first set of pools for other games. Since Saturday is the biggest day, some casuals might be put on in the Stratford Picture House. While we are making progress in going ahead with it, we would like all Pokken players to hold off making travel arrangements until we get the all clear with the plan.

There are no other changes to any other games.

Also another change we are making is that people now cannot enter tournaments on the day. This is for organisational purposes and to help tournaments run on time.

We’ll be opening the website now for new information on the event. The sign up page on Smash.GG will be open next month. The website will contain the games list, the rules and other bits of information. We are setting up a mini-portal for side games once we get suggestions in from the community. If you have any issues please contact Rayokarna or Firei on the NGI Discord in the Revolution channel. Things that are labelled subject to change can be changed or removed.

Side Games:

Due to the scheduling of the events, we’ll be taking in applications for side events at Revolution for them to be streamed on the Sunday. Our main stream will be occupied with the 4 larger games from Saturday’s pools so the secondary stream will be free for use. So please let us know on Discord what side events you want in so we can schedule it in.


We’ll be looking for people to help with bracket management for Revolution 2018, so if you are interested than please let us know!
