    Ayyy. I'm Sharpie. What's good?

    I host this new show called "I Wanna Be The Skullgirl" on EightySixed's twitch channel.
    Basically, this thread is to keep the information and VoDs available for quick/easy access. Plus, the schedule for the program can be found here as well!

    So now, you're asking yourself: "What is I Wanna Be The Skullgirl even supposed to be, Sharpie? Your run-of-the-mill online tournament filled with the same players every week? A rip-off of Ultimate Showstopper featuring your boiz @POS Industries and @ElkyDori ?!"

    GLAD YOU ASKED.

    I Wanna Be The Skullgirl (or IWBTS, before I destroy both my ctrl and v keys) is not just a tournament, but a news show that aims to entertain and teach both all players, not just new, but veterans as well. We have The Peanut Gallery with @mcpeanuts, Beta Discussion and Changes with @guitalex2007, Gameplay Mechanics with @doubledark, and Bread and Butter Combos / Combo Videos with @guitalex2007 and @6-Let . We even have Salt Matches every week with different "super secret guest commentators" and a famous player from the same region!

    description of segments (open)
    THE PEANUT GALLERY, hosted by McPeanuts, is an analysis segment. In this segment, McPeanuts takes a video either requested by the community or a video from prominent players at a recent tournament and dissects it with the play-by-play information.

    BETA DISCUSSION AND CHANGES, hosted by Guitalex, is just a basic update with the newest nerfs and buffs to the game as LabZero prepares to complete Skullgirls.

    GAMEPLAY MECHANICS, hosted by DoubleDark, takes a more in-depth look at different mechanics inside the game and explains how (and why) they work in actual gameplay. This segment both expands and works alongside with the in-game tutorial to help advance new players as well as remind intermediate players about techniques at their disposal.

    BREAD AND BUTTER COMBOS, hosted by @6-Let , is a segment aimed at newer players that teaches how to make the most out of any combo.

    SALT MATCHES are different every week. The guest commentator will be playing another player in his region or a player chosen by the community. In a classic FT5, this segment is aimed at more intermediate and advanced players who enjoy seeing exhibit matches.

    So yeah, we chock full of brand-new content every weekend on Saturday at 8PM 6PM EDT.

    I bet you really don't care about this though.
    You're probably thinking "Man, fuck all this content. WHEN IS THE TOURNAMENT SO I CAN WRECK KIDS?"

    Valid and completely hormonal question, random person.

    The tournament will be ran through Challonge.com and a link to each week's challonge page will be posted in this thread right here! There are a couple of rules to the tournament (which can be found here). Be sure to also join the steam group chat ahead of time. The steam group is here. Due to time constraints, we really only have time to run a 16-player tournament at most, but anyone else who signs up after the 16th player has, will be placed on a waiting list for the next week. Basically, HURRY UP AND SIGN UP!

    Okay, that about covers it.
    Smell you guys later!

    Sharpie I swear I'll have that video for this weekend or my name isn't Adalberto Alejandro Ruiz-Montañez.

    Which it isn't, but I'll still try.

    so just for feedback+opinions (wanted or not :p),
    - 8-person tourney is fine with the amount of content you want to put in. That would be about 14 sets so about 40-50+ minutes of matches not including the guest set. Plus these are newer players so everyone who entered will have at least one match commentated with tips.

    - The guest set later in the line up, not between tourney segments, and be ft5.

    -A wrap-up at the end , just bullet points of the nights talk (Ground Bounce, BNB, Combo Making, etc.) "the top tips of the night".

    Guest Intro> Tourney 4 matches> segment> Tourney 4 matches(2 winners/2loser) > segment> tourney 3 loser matches> segment> guest set > recap > final 3 matches>more sponsor stuff>peace

    The videos were good, Nice questions asked, liked the banter, and looking forward to the next. Hopefully the kinks will be ironed out, good luck.

    Each set takes about 10 minutes to stream, including after game commentary and the time it takes to get each player in the lobby and ready. If I were to stream about 4 sets just in the first round of tourney, I will have used up 40 minutes already.

    I could definitely stream every single game, but that would be an over six hour long tournament which, even with breaks for content, would be tiring to both the participants and the commentators. In addition, the stream would end at 1AM instead of 10PM now, which people are already saying is too long/too late.

    The schedule you have proposed is essentially the same schedule I have now, except that I will only be streaming 2 games per round in Winners and Loser's Finals. This is not an unheard of concept. In fact, both USS and Newbie Night do not stream every single match: USS impromptuly chooses which matches will be streamed when they come up and Newbie Night had winner's and loser's run on different streams with Loser's Finals being streamed on the main stream.

    Really, the only thing that will be changed in the next stream isn't the amount of tournament games that will be streamed, but the timing and procedures that are used to decide which games are chosen for stream. If it gets to the point where the players are able to make each set less than 5 minutes, I'll be able to stream more of the tournament on stream, but like I've said before this stream focuses on content that players have created and information to be shared on players, so moving forward I will continue to try to focus primarily on that.

    when you have a match going have 6-let get the next set ready in another lobby and send an invite. Would prob cut a lot of time you guys spent waiting.

    I also wanted to make note that the majority of the matches went 2-0, 10/14 not including the GF.

    If the timer runs out it its around 3 minutes. If every match of a set timed out that would be 9 minutes 2-1 score. There was 1 eight minute video and 2 five minute videos 18 minutes.

    but I will round up to 10 minutes like you said for match and commentary and put videos to 20 minutes, with 14 sets that is about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
    Now for the guest match I have watched ft15 go to 45 minutes, I will just toss that in. The total still reaches 3 hours 25 minutes. Stream would end 11:25 for this extreme example.

    Anywho I guess I wasn't fully aware of what you are going for but thanks for the response.

    For the record, Sony Movie Studio Platinum has most of the features of Vegas (probably all the ones most people use) and is only $80.

    And I've seen your videos; you could do that stuff in Windows Movie Maker no problem.

    Does Sony Movie Studio Platinum do masking as well as vegas does? It'd be super convenient for me to get a better program for masking than After Effects and something not super expensive.

    Its also worth noting that this week, we're giving registration priority to any and all players with LESS THAN 50 HOURS in the game.

    Hopefully with the new free week, we'll get tons of new blood!

    Nice job to everyone that entered the tourney this week, I had fun playing the lot of you

    I'll bow out of the next one, the lag was bad for me but I imagine it was that much worse for the rest of you. I'll try my best to watch the next episode, though!

    The general reception in chat was actually really positive.

    A lot of players understood it more than previously and even started learning from it. I've linked it to both the players in the video and asked for their feedback as well, but haven't heard anything unfortunately.


    BTW, SORRY TO EVERYONE FOR NOT UPLOADING VODS YET. I was kinda tied up with some stream stuff yesterday, but I can upload it today after work!!
    :D

    Thanks for being patient~

    They are every Saturday, so there will be one held this Saturday as well.

    After I finish uploading these videos, I'll make the Challonge page and Reddit post for this week's.
