Have people tried to sneak AI into your tournaments or something?

Lol no it's just a joke.... would be funny if that actually happened though. I think there was some old WinMugen type creations that had the AI take over though, for like Kamijou or Kumagawa or something. That's been fixed. IKEMEN GO handles the rest pretty well.

True, I tend to enjoy playing with a KOFM character once in awhile. Though there are some decent choices on that roster they have set up, though I did find quite a bit of characters with infinites on the roster... at the same time some of those are older versions as well.

Mainly that they are a more flashier form of KOF with a ton of supers and long combos usually more simplified than regular KOF. For instance cancels only require you to have enough super unlike in KOF XI where they require their own special meter to do them. They can be enjoyable though it's mainly for how long said combo can go on for lol.

We just recently added a bunch of chars, and meant to rebalance things but without changing them completely. For example, the HDBZ chars were just given bigger hurtboxes because they were too hard to hit, in combination with their extremely fast velocity air dashes, it was impossible for any grounded chars to at the very last trade, block, or punish. OHMSBY's chars were slightly rebalanced by having less HP regeneration, and throw is now normal start up time instead of 1 frame, and also hitboxes were adjusted so they're hittable. The KOFM chars were requested by one of our new members and he was very adamant about adding them after we try to somehow fix and balance them for him to use.

Everything in UMT right now is one big WIP so it's hard to check everything. But we're working on it. Some chars with infinites are certainly banned. Although we're just a tournament meant for just fighting for fun right now. I dont think it's possible to have a super serious type thing going on quite yet, at least not yet. But we're working on it.

Why not run a tournament with a more standardized gameplay system? Even with rebalancing efforts, it doesn't exactly seem competitive to have completely different gameplay systems in one tournament

Yeah I know what you mean. Our CvS2 vs POTS game is way more balanced in comparison, despite being slightly mixed, it's still much closer to home and has foundational similarities. So we have a different crowd for that. Although it's still fun for me to personally fight some BBTag, GGXX, Z2, it's fun for me but I can imagine how the high stakes wouldn't be fun for someone else.

At this point if we shut the doors on open rosters a lot of our players would simply just disappear. Simply because people have their preferred styles and characters that they are attached to, and we already have a "rising" number of human players appearing for this style.

The most important thing though is we still have fun despite the high stakes and stark contrasts. And because it is mostly fun, it's what somehow created a small niche community of consistent fighters everyday just duking it out and having a good time.
