    Pink Grin Eyes On Plays Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions

    Eyes On Plays



    It's been over a year since Eyes On Final Fantasy Forums last played a Final Fantasy title together. This January, the event returns with one of the greatest entries into the Final Fantasy family--Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.

    So find your PSX or your PSP, because it's time to play!

    The Challenges

    Gold


    • The Squire Award
      • Complete a Single Class Challenge. You may use five characters who all share one single class. They must all be this class before the battle at Dorter Trade City. After this battle, their classes must remain the same throughout the entirety of the game. Also, you may use JP to learn abilities and use abilities from this selected class only. No cheating!

    • The Chemist Award
      • Complete a Dual Class Challenge. Similar to the challenge for the Squire Award, except you characters may use two classes. They all must use the same two classes, and can mix and match abilities from these two classes only.

    • The Mime Award
      • Use AI only. All your characters must auto-battle.

    • The Samurai Award
      • A Ramza only challenge. You may use only Ramza!


    Silver


    • The Knight Award
      • Complete the game!

    • The Time Mage Award
      • Either be the first or the last person from this event to beat the game before the event is over!

    • The Mystic Award
      • Use only the six classes from Final Fantasy: Knight, Thief, Monk, White Mage and Black Mage. Since there is no Red Mage, you cannot use him.

    • The Orator Award
      • Devise some other kind of challenge that is good enough to earn you an award, and then complete it! Please describe your personal challenge, and provide screenshots.

    • The Thief Award
      • Use an emulator or pirated copy of this game for your playthrough.


    Edit: Here's a challenge from our own Wolf Kanno. It sounds pretty hardcore. Anyone willing to take it on??

You must complete the whole game without ever directly controlling your party.
    This event begins in January. If it's still 2010 where you will be playing this game, you need to wait until after midnight to begin!

    And as always, please upload lots of pictures of yourself playing this game. Clothing is optional of course. To earn these awards, you need to upload or link to some sort of screenshot or video or diary of some kind. But, it's not like winning these awards will get you anything! I've asked before, but you really only get bragging rights. But, you're free to post about it in your sig or something. idc

    Oh, and naming people after forum members always provides laughs.

    Okay, get out there and play!
    Gogogo!

    I really do want to play this when I get back to my mom's in a couple of days. But I left my USB controller at my law school apartment. Maybe I'll break out the PS1.

    I've never played this game, but I'd certainly like to try. Maybe I can emulate it

    umm, isn't that just a different way of saying the mime award?


    "The Mime Award
    • Use AI only. All your characters must auto-battle."


    "build the best party you can while only using the Auto Battle function"

    EDIT: not meaning to seem rude or anything, and sorry about this late edition, fft caused a bad memory write and blue-screened my comp. (really shouldn't have disabled memory protection).

    So is this game the same as the original Tactics or what, I don't have a handheld portable console gaming device such as a Playstation Portable

    Yes. It is the original!

    I think the JP requirements in the PSX version might be lower too. So it might save time to play that version?

    it is ALMOST the exact same game. there are a couple added special characters and classes, and the translation is radically different. i would dare say that the psx version is plain english and the psp emulates middle english with a faux shakespearian text

    63% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    I might not be able to partake in this. I don't have any money to buy it off PSN and probably won't for two months.

    When we dance, it looks just like Fire.

    When we sing, it sounds the same tone.

    You can create a separate US PSN account to get it (any anything else you want).
