About Chase the Ace Tournament
Fast-action qualifier rounds are just one of the features that make
this tournament so competitive. The GM's (10 of them) will host a
two-person room each; every two players that can get into these rooms
will fight one match where the winner stays and the loser bounces out.
If a player loses, they jump into another room and can play as many
times as they want in the four- hour span of each tournament day.
Players will move into the finals based on their combined score or
number of wins during the qualifying round. Top prizes include a
PlayStation® 3 and a Xbox 360 for first and second place winners, and
10 "Kings of the Hill" will receive Apple iPods.
The Shisa, who uses a Tonfa, possesses an amped up version of the
Fighter's speed and vigorous combo attacks, bringing down decisive
matches with combo hits and fast moving attacks with efficiency.
Shisa's attacks are derived from combos and moving attacks that bring
about favorable judgments by driving out more enemies, allowing him to
break through defenses. By using burning skills deriving his many
different forms and dodging, the Shisa is able to restrain enemies
from afar, infuse panic in them with his attack timing, or make combo
attacks after dodging. The Tonfa reinforces the Fighter's close range
attacks, speed, and destructive force, earning Shisa the title of
strongest class of Fighters.
By using his basic skills, the Shisa can combine punches and kicks,
springing low into the air after a fast punch and kick combo, turn
back and hit a combo attack, called the True Strike Dragon Tail. In
the strengthened version, added Chi gives Jin's combo more power and
punch. The Power Rising consists of delivering two big punches after
delivering an upper cut, where a fiery tornado appears, throwing an
enemy into the air. With added strength, Jin's punches are imbued with
Chi to deliver a more devastating effect. For a level three basic
attack, after punching out the entire room with repeated fiery
punches, the Shisa's body erupts with Chi that glows! Players will
need a mission scroll, available in the shop, and must have Jin at
least at level 20 in order to complete these missions.
