Setup drop off area is circled in the attached photo. Please bring setups! It is estimated we can fit 40 setups into this venue! But the tourney will not run optimally if we don't get enough! If you want to ensure that you get enough friendlies, bring a setup!


- RULES -

Super Smash Bros. Melee:
* 4 stock, 8:00 minute timer.
* Items OFF.
* Ties after the time limit are determined by stocks, then by percentage.
* Master Hand is banned.
* Wobbling is banned.
* Stalling with Jigglypuff’s Rising Pound or Peach’s Wall Bomber is banned.
* Glitches such as Ice Climbers’s Freeze Glitch and Mewtwo’s Soul Stunner are banned.
* Dave’s Stupid Rule: You cannot counterpick any stage you have won on in a set unless agreed upon by the opponent.

Stage Strike from Neutrals for the first match of the set in “1221″ fashion:
1. First player strikes one stage.
2. Second player strikes two stages.
3. First player strikes one stage.

Stagelist:

Neutral (Singles)
Final Destination
Yoshi’s Story
Dream Land
Battlefield
Fountain of Dreams

Counterpick (Singles)
Pokemon Stadium

Neutral (Doubles)
Final Destination
Yoshi’s Story
Dream Land
Battlefield
Pokemon Stadium

Counterpick (Doubles)
Kongo Jungle 64

After each match:
1. Winner announces stage ban (except in best-of-5 sets)
2. Loser chooses counterpick stage
3. Winner chooses their character
4. Loser chooses their character

Additional Rules:
* Player’s Choice Clause: You may play by a rule outside of this ruleset if your opponent agrees to it as long as it does not deliberately delay the tournament process. In the event of a disagreement, house rules stand.
* Double Blind Character Picks: Players may elect to double blind pick their characters for the first match in case of any disputes.
* Neutral Spawn Points: Players may elect to use neutral spawn points to decide controller ports for the first match in case of any disputes.
* Glitches: Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in forfeiture of the match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.

Doubles-Specific Rules:
* Life stealing is allowed
* Friendly Fire is turned ON
* Pause is turned OFF

Placings in Singles Pools are determined based on:
1. number of sets won
2. winning percentage in games (win/loss ratio)
3. head-to-head winner

In the event of an X-way tie in Singles Pools after all tiebreakers are exhausted, a best-of-1 round robin will be played out between the X players until there is a clear order of placings.

For each event,

If 100 or fewer entrants:
1st: 50%

- SETUPS -

WE NEED PEOPLE TO BRING FULL SETUPS!

The tournament staff can only provide a couple TVs to start with, so it's up to the community to bring more and improve the quality of the event! More TVs means more friendlies and more playing time, so please do your part if you have equipment to lend us for the day. EVERY EXTRA SETUP MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

If you bring a full setup from 12pm-9pm, we will refund you $5 at the end of the tourney.

Here's to a great 2016 for Melee! :)

I might be coming to the UofM tournaments. Representing SE MI (not Ann Arbor.) I've been wanting to play Melee more and see what MI Melee's about.

I rarely work on Saturday nights. I'll bring a setup if I come.

Good stuff DarkLouis. A tourney on campus is a great way to start, I'd say even better than a house tourney.

It's okay. At least you know you'll be having a good time either way that weekend.

god darnit...this is the same day as a chicago tourny already -_-.
This is the only day in the next month that works for over half of the UM/MSU people, sorry Tink. Same with 10/23, that's literally the only day that works in October if you look at the football schedules.

I don't know if I'll be attending this one yet. It all depends on my work load, and if the home football game is gonna be at noon. If it's at noon, I can drive down after the game and hopefully still make it in time for singles.
