TOURNAMENT NICO STREAM LINK

Tournament starts at 13:00 JST and is scheduled to end at 17:00 JST.

In Western time, this will be later in the evening so I hope that you are able to watch for those interest.

What is Braver's Revel? It is the biggest BlazBlue tournament in the nation with the best BlazBlue players in the nation competing 2v2 format, single elimination.

Braver's Revel 2016, the national event for BlazBlue, is wrapping up their qualifiers and some character data in regards to participation and character frequency per region.

Why is this important? Because Japanese players are not only from Tokyo and don't always come to America. There are plenty of top level and high level players throughout Japan that many of you may not know.

I hope this is helpful, share to those interested in BlazBlue if Western players want to get better and know more.

There will also be one more team announced at the day of the tournament for those who were not able to qualify and were knocked out early.

I am providing twitter handles for you to follow and learn more about the game, I hope that you are respectful enough if you do talk to them and ask a question.

Sorry if my english is off, I personally know only some of these players so I am doing my best judgement for you can understand in english.

Number of each character in tournament
7: Carl, Nine
6: -
5: Litchi
4: Ragna, Azrael
3: Jin, Arakune, Hakumen, Izayoi, Izanami
2: Bang, Hazama, Makoto, Relius, Celica
1: Noel, Tager, Rachel, Tsubaki, Valkenhayn, Mu, Bullet, Lambda, Hibiki, Naoto
0: Taokaka, Nu, Platinum, Amane, Kagura, Kokonoe, Terumi

There is spot for a final last qualify the day of. update later.

Teams/Players to watch out for:

Tennti/Kinji: A young and upcoming team whom have started playing very recently. My favorite to win and I have a bias for personal reasons. They work for a sake brewery and they are top ranked in their respective characters. The nation's strongest Izayoi with one of the strongest Carls.

Poropicchi/Q: Very strong Hakumen and Nine players. Don't underestimate them, understand the game very well and are able to pull off upsets. Dark horse to win Bravers Revel with matchups.

Ikemen/take: MAXIM HERO regulars well known in the region and competitors at the MAXIM HERO danisen, consistently top and one of the best in Hokkaido. Hometown representatives. Don't sleep on this team.

Tetsuwo/Isa: This team also needs no introduction or explanation. Tetsuwo Rachel gives players nightmares and with how strong Carl is in BBCF they are one of the teams to beat. Good luck to who matches with them first.

Fenritti/Iwashi: Best Jin in the nation and a very strong Ragna from Kansai. They are each other prefer team mates at Athena Nihonbashi Oosaka and other game center. Fenritti results in the past have beaten very many of the best players consecutively. 2v2 and matchup seeding makes it very interesting.

Dogura/Minami: No need to explain or introduce.

Notable Players not attending/did not qualify:
EA
Kikutiyo
emushi
Atelier
Galileo
Tenkyo
Kotetsu
Terralunar
Tujikawa
Kaichou
Denpa
Linhime
Koike
NO
Matoi

and more to show the large talent pool out there...

TOURNAMENT NICO STREAM LINK

After the national tournament, there will also be exhibition matches between some of the best character specialists in the nation. I will update with more links when more exhibitions are announced.

Such as...

Fenritti (Jin) vs. Fumi (Nine)
The best Jin in Kansai vs the best Nine in Kanto.



The day after at 13:30 PM, there is also a 11 on 11 tournament Team Battle Royale with some familiar names on the list.

The format is 11 vs 11, Single Elimination but with a Life System.
This way if one of your strong players gets knocked out early during the Team Battle, the team gets 3 lives to spend to bring one of their players back.
So this battle royale will effectively be a 14 vs 14 match with 11 players per team. It is up to the team on how they use their lives.

GODSGARDEN will be in charge of the 11 on 11 team battle stream.

Here are the Teams of 11.

Too bad I can't watch it, I hope someone upload the whole thing, because Nico Nico sucks when it comes to archives.
People like Jourdal archived some of the qualifiers to youtube.

This tournament likely will be archived to Youtube, but maybe later.

Nico Nico is a garbage streaming platform for anyone watching outside of japan.
Sponsor money. Taito money too. It is the only option for the time being and it is definitely worth watching live in some form for any BlazBlue player wanting to see the very best compete and get better at the game.

I provided twitters for all the players that do have one, and can probably provide more of the players who did not qualify or did not attend.

Lots of talent here.

How are there 7 Carl players? Did he really get buffed that much in CF? Can Nirvana tank EAs or something?
At the moment he is by and far the best and scariest chara in the game.

Carl > Arakune

then Nine, Izayoi, Rachel, Jin > Azrael. Everyone else except Kagura is basically competitive in the game. The top 2 and top 6 are just insane characters.

The game is balanced really well at the moment and the number of characters represented, with the exception of Carl, is not really representative of how strong a character is or their ranking/tier.

An example is Amane, who is a pretty good character high ranking, with very few people playing him at all.

Same with Tsubaki, Terralunar the best ranked Tsubaki in Japan didn't qualify.

ASW taking "the wheel of fate is turning" too literally while balancing out characters, can't think of any other game that shift tiers as much as BB.

Thanks for the post. Gotta root for Grandia, Goro, and Konan. I love character specialists. So many ridiculous teams though. Can't believe NO didn't make it though, unless I'm missing something.

Updated with the teams and rules for the 11 vs. 11 Team Battle. This is going to be a weekend full of the best BlazBlue talent in a while and I hope that you find a chance to watch if you are interested in getting better.

The players for the 11 on 11 team battle consists of players who did not qualify but are just as strong if not stronger.

NO did not qualify, but he might have a last minute chance tomorrow on the day of the tournament for the last spot.

He will be at the 11 on 11 exhibition the following day.

Conan is cool, but if you like Tsubaki Terralunar is a very scary player too.

If anyone else wants more twitters I will provide.

GO KONAN!

Conan is cool, but if you like Tsubaki Terralunar is a very scary player too.
Terra Lunar is good but he plays like a maniac. He drops a lot of weird stuff and makes some odd decisions. I like Usagi but I haven't seen much of him lately.

Konan is by far the best all around Tsubaki right now though.

TEAM: テロリスト&ダンプカー (Terrorist & Dump Car)
Obviously the best team. Best photo and name.
I know the name is literally ダンプーカー in Japanese, but wouldn't it just be Dump Truck, since we don't say "dump car" in English? Regardless, it's a funny name.

I hate off-screen eliminations. I mean, I know why they happen (they can't stream ALL matches), but even still...

:(
There will be plenty of play after during the First to 10 exhibitions tonight and Tennti and others who got knocked out off stream like NO and Koike will be at the 11 on 11 stream tomorrow.

I'll link and bump the thread when it's ready.


Tennti got so good so fast at Izayoi in a span of a couple years. He has matchup issues tho like Fenritti is one of the players that beat him a lot.

Tennti and Kinji were my favorites to win and they got knocked out of Top 8 by Goro's Makoto. So many upsets in this tournament. So much pressure single elimination.

Exhibition match with Toshimichi Mori, the game producer, playing Izanami vs Mitsuhiro Ichiki, Hibiki Kohaku CV.

That Ryuusei v Isa Carl mirror was absolutely bonkers.
They were hella screwing around with the palette choice and some of the decisions made during the match.

Anyway RIP Tetsuwo, good shit Ryuusei. Tetsuwo could have had that...

Top 4 Results

Poropocchi (Hakumen)/Q (Nine) vs Matsu (Makoto)/Nakao (Nine)

Poropicchi nooooooooooooo.

You were so close. Matsu is hella good tho he was on a mission that last round.

We might get a Makoto mirror in the finals if Goro and Ryuusei beats Dogura and Minami...
