Try and figure out what the hell is happening in FFT Battleground, a twitch stream that's a cross between the classic generative beat-em-up sports betting hijinks of Salty Bet and the turn-based chocobo-adjacent combat of PS1 classic Final Fantasy Tactics.

They turned my favorite RPG of all time into a gladiatorial, auto-battling, gambling hall?

Half of me wants to love this forever and half of me wants to go full Jesus-throwing-moneylenders-out-of-the-temple on this.

It has my attention.

I'd forgotten what a pretty game FFT was, especially for the PS1.
This, however, is madness.

I have come to the conclusion to NEVER try to figure out what the hell is happening on ANY channel, whether it's a live gamestream, a casual Jackbox game, a kittencam, or a marathon of old TV shows (which includes Bob Ross, MST3K, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).

This is more entertaining than I expected.

One thing I will say is that Saltybet's integrating betting system is miles and miles better... it's very hard to do anything with the betting system in this one other than constant !allin.

No, this is Sparta!

Interesting! But not the Fast Fourier Transform based Battle Royale i was hoping for. I shall gave to work out what that would be, exactly.

Jon Mitchell : Final Fantasy Tactics. At least that's my assumption not being able to look at the video at work, but the above comment about Ivalice pretty much solves that.
