The Tournapocalypse!
Posted on: September 14, 2014, at 11:54:30pm

I'm currently registered for 5 tournaments, and it's kind of freaky. I'm not really that excited about it, because for me maybe they're not as big as the official tournaments, but I'm kind of concerned that I'm not excited because there's very little difference. The only differences I can think of are the number of participants, and the fact that you have to post each of your scores manually (and also that official tourneys use new songs, I guess).

What kind of excited me was the idea that brand new kinds of tournaments could be just around the corner. I'm bummed I forgot to register for the RPG tournament, because it's probably the most original I've seen (not that I'm an expert). The PvE one sounds somewhat similar though, so maybe that'll be fun. And of course none of this is gonna top that live mp tournament in my opinion.

Part of me kind of thinks this tournament boom is in response to the recent user outcry about FFR problems:

And I really hope that isn't the case, especially because it will likely just create more problems with under-staffing and maybe even burn people out on key-smashing altogether.

I don't know if anyone else feels this, but ever since I read that no one can contact synthlight, I just have this anxious feeling every time I log on to the site. Probably part of it is because I mostly hide in a hole and never talk to anyone on here (until recently). Maybe I care more about this game than I thought I did. I feel like I'm still meant to learn something from the people here, or make a friend for life somewhere along the way. Like some precious information is contained here, and I have to find it before it's too late.

Anyways, I can't stop worrying about it.
I haven't lost any sleep over it yet though.
Also I have to keep a note on my desktop to keep track of all these tournaments!
