The AU/NZ Fighterbase – Accepting Submissions!

March 1, 2010

Edit: Those of you still posting in this thread, please go here:

http://fighterbase.ozhadou.net/

To register with the system as it is now up and running!

For a while I have been intending to amass a collection of online player handles in one location that allows us to add people easily to our respective platform’s contact list. Ideally I’d like to build something from scratch using PHP/MySQL though I have put that on the back-burner for now due to time constraints.

For a while I was tinkering with various back-ends into the PSN with admittedly mixed results (largely because I’m a shitty JAVA programmer). I recently picked up an Xbox 360 and have found the Xbox Live back-end so be surprisingly user friendly to manipulate and traverse via a web browser and therefore with a little bit of HTML tinkering its straight forward to present a few options otherwise restricted to either the cumbersome console interface or the Xbox Live web portal.

I have put together a simple web page with clickable fields that allows you to browse a clear list of player names and add them to your (Xbox) contact list. Currently this list only includes Xbox Live players due to the simple ability to link directly to player profiles so that they may be conveniently added to our contact lists. Note that I do plan to add a list of PSN players (I play on the PSN also) though for now the plan is to flesh it out for the Xbox Live platform.

The list is split into Gamertags with several fields. The fields are:

1.) Gamertag

The player’s Xbox Live player name. This links to their Xbox Live player profile so that they can be easily added via your web browser giving you something productive to do while at work.

2.) Platform

For now, this only includes the Xbox Live platform.

3.) Location

This includes Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton, Christchurch, etc. The idea here is to perhaps gauge the connection quality to people you may wish to add. A Brisbane player for example may receive poor connectivity to a Dunedin player and vice versa.

4.) Main

The player’s preferred character. e.g. ‘Zangief.’

5.) Alt

The player’s alternate character. e.g. ‘C. Viper.’

6.) Rank

There are three basic categories:

(A.) This includes players who have been playing for a solid amount of time and are familiar with various match-ups and many ins and outs to the game. You likely have a few tips to share.

(B.) This defines players who have settled on a character, are working towards pulling their game together and are looking for challengers to help level up. You have questions (we all do), but still handle yourself well and are trying to crack the next level.

(C.) This is for people very new to SFIV/SSFIV. Beginners are typically only just getting into the game and figuring out how things work. You are still working on key combos and game mechanics and would like to meet players climbing the same ladder to play against.

Note that this isn’t a gloating platform. It is merely a guide to help determine the level players you are adding are roughly at so that you can decide if you’re inviting yourself to be challenged, find someone close to your level, or perhaps even if you’re looking for a student.

See a ‘C’ who wants to learn Dhalsim? Add them and help them out. Driving an intermediate Ken and want to beef up your M. Bison match-up skills? Add someone at your level or above that mains or alts him. Perhaps you feel like you’ve got a solid handle on your main and want to test where you stand to see what areas need attention? You’re likely experienced.

Note that this isn’t a gloating platform. It is merely a guide to help determine the level players you are adding are roughly at so that you can decide if you’re inviting yourself to be challenged, finding someone close to your level, or perhaps even if you’re looking for a student. The categories are simple and do not infer lofty claims. Be honest! (Bomb, you’re an A.)

So, the objective now is to populate this list and then make it accessible for all on this site. Hence the new ‘Fighterbase’ link on the top nav-bar. The intention here is to make this open to Australia and New Zealand players as from my experience I am able to enjoy solid connections to folks scattered around both countries. Beyond these regions I find things get a bit fickle in the latency department. I personally enjoy laggy Street Fighter about as much as a swift kick to the nuts.

You are welcome to submit your Xbox Gamertag and related details. I will make a comment post to this article that functions as a template for submitting your profile so that I can add it to the Fighterbase. Once I have amassed enough players, I will open the page. Please note that this information is NOT used for anything else. This is a resource/tool for the AU/NZ SFIV community. Participation is voluntary.

Lastly, yes, this has been done many times before. That is kinda the point. We have player lists scattered over various forums and buried in many threads. The plan is to centralise this and at some point migrate it into a site of its own. Admittedly, many of us have added one another already however I still run into new players quite frequently so perhaps we all have an SF buddy or two to share.

    Once I have a few amassed, I will open the page up. Thankyou for contributing. Here’s hoping this thing works out. If not, well, at least we tried 🙂

    Hmmm maybe i’m C?… I read it as Incompetent, Competent and GodLike and I read into it wrong. Maybe a better definition of rank is needed 🙂

  5. March 1, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Good call. I’ve added the rank definitions in (which I’ve tried to keep as generalised as possible) to help make things clearer. Sorry for any confusion and cheers for submitting info 🙂

    I suppose it wouldn’t be viable to have others rank you? It might seem like a more accurate and realistic reflection of how others view your skills. Modesty and ego could possibly prejudice the way you view your own rank.

    (Oh crap I screwed up … feel free to delete the previous post)

    For those who are unsure about where they fit, just read the description of which category you should fit in.

    A) just means you have been playing for a while and know the game
    B) playing for a bit, settled on a main and trying to level up
    C) Relatively new to SF4

    Nowhere does it read Pro, Intermediate, Noob so its not so much your skill level but whether you know what you are doing. There is a big difference there. I’m far from pro but you won’t see wakeup ultras and srk spam from me.

    Anyway:

    Maybe we need a new level A+ i.e. can hit links %99 of the time can win a couple of games at a tournament etc. Cause based on the definitions i’d put myself at around A (now the game fairly well) but my execution leaves a lot to be desired and I get beaten fairly easily by A+ people.

    Ok, hold fire gents.

    I am creating a submission form to inject this stuff directly into the database. I’ll upload this shortly as I’m still wrangling with various bugs.

    Either way, thanks very much for the interest in this!
