Apex 2015
Updated January 30th - 10:27PM​

Notes
  • Reference the OLD pool/schedule document to get your wave/pool assignment
  • USE THE NEW VENUE DOCUMENTS FOR THE NEW TIMES FOR YOUR POOLS!
  • No events have been cut at all
  • Phase 1 of Melee/Wii U doubles is now a top 2 advance (instead of top 4)
  • Phase 2 of all Melee and Wii U events occur immediately after phase 1 is completed
  • FGC registration will end an hour before the tournament will start
  • Pokemon Registration will end an hour before tournament will start
  • Venue opens at 8AM
  • Shuttles *should* start around 7AM - Twitch is working on this but this will not be 100% confirmed until early Saturday morning - at this time you should rely on community support in case these shuttles are not available and make a backup plan accordingly
  • Huge props to the volunteers, Twitch, Apex Staff, Nintendude/Dr. Z for a huge amount of work on the schedule, Crismas, Red Bull, Nintendo, Curse, Jebailey and the new venue, among many, many others, to even get to this point where this event will occur and be completed
  • The first pools start at 9AM. It is a 1 hour drive from the old venue to the new venue. Plan accordingly, be early, DQs will be occurrin this first wave. Apex will be relying on players to be awesome and cooperate. No johns.
  • Splatoon will remain in the old venue (has not moved to new venue)

WE BACK. Anyone got a simplified version of the schedule?
Like I'm back at reading these kind of things, and mainly just wanna watch Melee singles and Wii U singles. :p

EDIT: Figured it out, I'm such an idiot sometimes.

You guys over there are pulling through, the Smash community never disappoints. Will we get a stream schedule soon? Will finals for all events still be streamed?

I'm so glad that things are still going to work out despite all the setbacks. The community really came together on this one...

Very odd that Splatoon is staying in the old venue, not going to any play then.

So I just get there and say my name? Then I get in? Is that how it works? Do I have to print out tickets? I already paid for 4 and Melee, I know where to go.

It's unfortunate that splatoon didn't move with the rest of APEX. It's understandable, though. I don't know if I would to unecessarily move devkits, builds of unreleased games, and props/custom stream equipment if I were nintendo. But at least they had the heart to remain a sponsor.

Still, I'd prefer it if they relocated as well. Then again my opinion doesnt matter much. I'm just a stream monster this year...

Okay, so my friend hasn't checked in yet, he was gonna do it tomorrow, and he's in Smash Wii U 1v1, Wave D, which starts at 1:30pm. Will he be able to check in and get to his pool without a problem before that, given the state of everything that's happened? I remember on the original schedule Check In was available basically all day, so I can't imagine if we got there around noon that he'd have trouble getting in for his fights, but I wanted to ask just in case. Thanks.

If I'm playing an FGC game in Wave J, do I have to get there at the start of the tourney at 9am? Or can I show up an hour before my wave starts?

You have to get in line to check in, where they see your State ID and issue you a "Competitor" badge for the weekend. No tickets to print out, just have to wait in line, is all.

It was originally $10 for Friday, $10 for Saturday, $20 for Sunday, and $30 for all weekend. Not sure what it is now, but there ya go. Hope that helps.

I'm a minor I don't have an ID
Force of habit for me to say State ID. I believe you just need some viable way of proving your identity and payment. It wouldn't hurt to have the email confirming your payment/entry ready to show, just in case.

Whoa! 1316 guests in this thread (at the time of this post) Well here's hoping the special announcement is good, and the finals are exciting, I really hope the special announcement is:wolf: Wolf being confirmed for Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS as his own playable character via DLC. As for the finals, I'm hoping to see ZeRo in the finals, and hopefully Mew2king if he entered.

Originally? Hopefully it didnt change, but thanks for the help man!
Only reason I put it that way is because now that Apex has been condensed into 2 days, I'm not sure what the rates will be, but what I said can't be far off. You're welcome, dude.
