Re:1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

Yea, it was a quarter pit and the PSP version was an exact port, so they still cheat like hell in the PSP version. Most of the time, the only way to win is using powers. Was still entertaining for a few play throughs though. Really pretty game.

Re:2 small rules questions

Just don\'t reach. A no-ten reach that ends in a draw round means a chombo for the reacher, but if you just don\'t reach and declare no-ten at the end of the round, there is no penalty beyond paying the bonus to the tenpai people. Most of the gambling parlors say that even if a dealer is in tenpai, ...

Re:2 small rules questions

The main example I was thinking of was I was playing yesterday and it was south 3rd round. I was all ready up massively and I kept tsumoing until it was the 3rd continuance. I was wondering since it was so close to the end of the game and I was all ready ahead nicely, could I give up my continuance ...

2 small rules questions

First, I know the last dealer can choose to not continue if he wins, but if it is not last round and the dealer wins, can he refuse the continuance round any time? Like say if he wins during the east 2nd round? I know it\'s unlikely, but I was just wondering if he could. Second, can you still pon / ...

Re:Pinfu and Menzen Tsumo

I just hope one day they balance the scoring a bit more. I\'d love to see Ryan pei ko, San anko, and san shoku doko all bumped up a han to make them auto mangans.

Re:Pinfu and Menzen Tsumo

Interesting variation. First time i\'ve ever heard of it too. I guess it went hand and hand with the open tanyao which i\'m assuming used to be a no-go too.

Re:1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

umm, like with psp there is ad hoc (can only play with people around you) and infastructure (can play online). Hopefully since there is a new version, eventually we\'ll get an update for the console games too. I picked up the wii version today so i\'ll fire it up sometime over the weekend and let yo...

Re:1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

Lemme rephrase it, not necessarily dumbed down, but it just didn\'t feel like MFC. For example, in the psp version you\'re still bound by the 5 second discard timelimit with 1 long wait even in single player, but on the DS version, you have as much time as you want. Also in the PSP version, they inc...

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

I never thought about that, but yea, that would explain a lot if people were team playing / using exploits. I have run into people with the same avatars before but never paid it much attention. It did catch my suspicion a few times though when I see people that have close to 50% win percentages with...

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

Lets face it: Online Mahjong or Mahjong on a computer, to be exact, is like masturbating. You don´t enjoy it but sometimes you have to do it. Thats the tragedy of our (beloved) hobby First of all.... epic win!!! Second of all, I agree totally. Nothing can compete with live play unfortunately. You b...

Re:1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

If you can find a way to connect it to the net, I would like to know what the player base is on the ps3. I need giant flashy stuff to keep me interested so I may be able to to get into the ps3 version if there are still alot of players. I don\'t know why they dumbed down the DS version, but it\'s ve...

Re:1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

Ah, I play in the arcade. I have the DS version, but I rarely play it. As a rule of thumb for me, if i\'m playing at home, I usually won\'t concentrate well, so I go to the game centers and play there. I know it\'s a money pit, but if I can\'t play at a real parlor, it\'s the next best thing, I do f...

Re:Hello! (And about buying a riichi-set in Tokyo)

Hi Roxo, welcome to the forums. I had the same opinion about the jewel sets, not for me. The sango set is very solid, and though i\'ve never seen them in the stores, some websites offer very good deals on a sango / junk mat set. How is your japanese? I can try to do a bit of research for you if you ...

1st rule of fight club: Don`t talk about fightclub

Okay, let me start out by saying I have no big problem with Mahjong Fight Club. In fact, I prefer it over every other non-live game. I think it`s one of the only ways to get semi-genuine play out of an online source. Even though it`s not gambling, you`re still competing for Orbs, and the right to a ...
