I'm a GENERAL, not some opera floozy!


I admit it, I'm sub-scrub-tier at Blitz. I have never won the mandatory tournament game, or any other season or leagues.

Imp Zone, how do I win at blitzball?

there is a glitch where if you stand in your own net once yu have possession of the ball the AI stops functioning, so you have to get the score one higher and then wait in your own net until time expires.

I've heard this a lot but it's never worked for me. I've heard in the net and behind it but neither seemed to work.

The tournament fight is supposed to be the equivalent of an unwinnable boss fight. Untrained teammates, strong opponents, your only advantage is the Jecht Shot if you have it. It can be done with enough practice and seeing them with the trophy in the post-tournament cutscene is worth all the attempts.

I spent like 4 hours one night doing blitzball league stuff , scoring one goal and idling in net for minutes at a time, winning a season and resetting my data until I got the prize I wanted, going out and recruiting everyone again etc. so I could get wakka's ultimate weapon in as few matches as possible. FFX is a cool game

it was all worth it when I fought the final boss and one shot it with wakka's attack reels, doing 9999 10x in one move, ending the fight before the music track fully loaded.

Probably the same line of thought that said hitting X button in a split second in response to a randomly timed flash of light two hundred times in consecutive order without saving, resting or taking a break is a fun way to do side quests.

Wakka's ultimate is the only one I never bothered getting because there was way too much tedious crap to go through.
