    2. ABSOLUTELY NO UNDERAGE DRINKING. If you are under the age of 21 or are caught serving alcohol to those under 21 you will be ejected from the premises, no refunds.

    4. Bring Your Own Controller. There will not be any for you to borrow.
    5. You are responsible for yourself and your own things. Theft will be watched for but I’m required to let you know that I will not be held responsible for things going missing. Be smart.
    6. Be mindful of your matches. TOs can and will award a loss to anyone more than 5 minutes late to a tournament match.
    7. TOs reserve the right to warn, DQ or eject anyone they find acting disrespectful, aggressive or behaving in some unsavory manner.
    8. Know the rules to whatever events you enter.
    Melee Ruleset
    - Items off.
    - 4 stocks, 8 minutes.
    - Team attack on, Sharing stock is allowed.
    - Pause off please. Pausing may result in the loss of your stock at the opponent’s discretion.
    - Ties are broken by %, then by number of stocks.
    - All sets are best of 3 with the exception of semis and finals, which are best of 5.
    - Controller mods are banned.
    - Stalling is banned.
    - Freeze glitch, Soul Stunner and like glitches are banned.
    - The Good DSR: A player cannot counterpick ANY stage he/she has won on previously in the set without the agreement of the opponent.
    - Gentleman’s Clause: Players may agree to play on any banned stage if agreed upon. Where there is disagreement, house rules apply.
    - Wobbling is NOT legal.

    Stages

    Singles Starters:
    Final Destination
    Dream Land
    Fountain of Dreams
    Battlefield
    Yoshi’s Story

    Singles Counterpicks:
    Pokemon Stadium
    Brinstar
    Kongo Jungle 64

    Doubles Starters:
    Final Destination
    Dream Land
    Battlefield
    Yoshi’s Story
    Pokemon Stadium

    Doubles Counterpicks:
    Kongo Jungle 64

    Set Format
    1. Both players select characters. Players may elect to double-blind.
    2. Stage Striking: Players strike from the starters list in a 1-2-2-1 fashion.
    3. Match 1 is played out.
    4. The winner of the preceding match bans one stage.
    5. The loser of the preceding match selects their counterpick stage for the next match.
    6. The winner picks their character.
    7. The loser picks their character.
    8. Steps 4-8 are repeated until the conclusion of the set.

    PM Ruleset (Apex Ruleset)
    * 4 stock, 8 minutes.
    * Sets are best of 3. Semis and Finals are best of 5.
    * Items set to “off” and “none.”
    * Either player may call for a Double Blind character selection for the first match.
    * The Good Dave’s Stupid Rule: A player may not counterpick ANY stage he won on in a set.
    * Controller port is determined by Rock Paper Scissors if it can’t be agreed upon. For doubles, the controller ports must be 1-2-2-1.
    * For doubles, Team Attack is on and life stealing is allowed. Remember that Attack+Special, not the Pause button, is used to steal lives.
    * Pausing during a match, unless okayed by the other player, will result in the loss of one stock for the pauser.
    * Quitting out of a match before it is over will result in a loss for the quitter.
    * If time runs out, the person with the most stock left (or least % if they are equal) wins. If the % is equal as well, play a 1 stock 3 minute match, same characters and stage.
    * If the match goes to sudden death due to a suicide move (Ganon’s side-B, Kirby/DDD’s swallow, holding someone in a grab on a platform as it moves out of the boundaries, etc.), the one who initiated the move wins.
    * Buffer set to off.
    * Custom controls are allowed, but controllers modified to enhance performance are not. No turbo buttons, etc. However, removing the springs from shoulder buttons or replacing a thumbstick with a different thumbstick are ok.
    * Custom music is allowed as long as it’s not too distracting, but any textures or vertex hacks outside of the official team color textures are not.
    * If you want to use your own SD card, a TO must overwrite the important game files (not music) in order to make sure there are no modifications. If you are caught cheating with modified game files, you will be immediately DQed without refund and banned from future events.
    * In the event that the game crashes or the TV/Wii loses power in the middle of a match, that match will be restarted from the beginning with the same characters and stage. If a player uses a known glitch to intentionally crash the game or otherwise make it unfinishable, that player may be forced to forfeit the match or be DQed at the TO’s discretion.
    * No excessive stalling (this includes abusing Jiggs’ Rising Pound and Mario’s Up-B Walljump)
    * No coaching during a match. Consulting someone between matches is allowed as long as it doesn’t hold up the next match.
    * Both players may agree to any rule or stage outside the tournament ruleset.
    * Giga Bowser is banned.

    Stagelist:

    For the 1st match, stage strike the starter list in 1-2-2-1 fashion. After each match, the winner of the previous match bans 3 stages (Players may counterpick a stage that they previously banned in the set, but may not counterpick a stage on which they won). The player who lost the previous match chooses a stage, then the player who won chooses their character, then the player who lost chooses their character.

    Starters:
    Battlefield
    Final Destination
    Smashville
    Pokemon Stadium 2
    Dreamland (64)
    Fountain of Dreams
    Yoshi’s Story (Melee) (singles only)
    SSE: Jungle (doubles only)

    Counterpicks:

    Battlefield
    Final Destination
    Smashville
    Pokemon Stadium 2
    Dreamland (64)
    Fountain of Dreams
    Yoshi’s Story (Melee) (singles only)
    SSE: Jungle (doubles only)
    Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
    Pokemon Stadium 1
    Lylat Cruise
    Wario Ware
    Green Hill Zone
    Skyloft
    Skyworld

    CSP (if applicable) (IMDB 10 rueset)
    Cactuar (by Cactuar)
    - Best of 7
    - Random stage from everything except Icicle Mountain and Hyrule Temple

    Stamina (by Nintendo)
    - Stamina Mode

    Pancake (by Zjiin)
    - Random characters
    - Starting with the winner from the last game, each player may decide to "flip" either character, meaning re-random them.
    - For the first match, decide randomly who flips first (via rock-paper-scissors).

    Rules Clarifications
    - If Zelda is randomed, re-random again to determine if you got Zelda or Sheik. The top 2 rows = Zelda, the bottom row = Sheik. This makes it very rare to have sheik, since she destroys low tier characters.
    - Select pichu before randoming. This is done to prevent disputes getting the same character twice in a row. If you "accidentally" hit B to repick Pichu, you are stuck with him.
    - If you can't tell who won the match, replay the game.
    - Wobbling is LEGAL.

    Could PS1 be banned for PM ruleset? I really hate having to waste two bans on PS2 and PS1 if I don't want to have that stage layout. A lot of pm tourneys are starting to ban PS1 as well. Replace it with drac's castle or something if needed.

    Also, will there be a stream this time?

    probably gonna replace ps1 with distant planet. Gonna test it this weekend.
    80% sure it'll be streamed. Depends on two things that should get fixed in time.

    I believe EXP has been banning PS1 and and Skyloft, and including distant planet as a neutral.

    Edit: Wait... scratch Distant Planet as a neutral. I'm watching the stream of the last WDW and I can't tell how they're using it. It's legal though, in some form.

    I'll def be there. I really hope CSP stays on the schedule, since we should have entrants this time with it being on a Saturday. I should be able to record vids again too, unless the Milwaukee streamers want to do that (I don't really).

    CSP will be played.
    Mundungu you don't have to record anything at all if you don't want to. I'm just gonna put the streamers in charge of that.
