    Registration and payment close: 1st August 2016 at 11:59pm. GMT

    Heir II is still the second largest Melee tournament Europe has ever seen in terms of player entrants and we've spent the end of 2015 and the start of 2016 discussing how we could potentially improve the already great Heir II and i think you'll appreciate what we've done! We've taken your advice on board to make sure you have the best time possible.

    The term #MoreThanATournament refers to our intent for the tournament to have a nice, friendly, sociable atmosphere that is ran by the community, for the community but which is also a highly competitive event that has a much higher pot size then the previous tournaments in the Heir Series.

    Tournament Rules

    • At the start of the set, the players will play rock/paper/scissors, with the winner being granted control. Whoever has control then gets to force their choice of Port Selection (if they choose). If they do, the other player has control for stage striking. If they do not force port, they retain control going into stage striking.

    • In game one the players select their characters before the stage has been struck to. If the players cannot agree on which character they will play in game one or believe that they are being counterpicked, either player can call for a double-blind character selection.

    • For a double blind pick to take place, both players agree on a neutral adjudicator. Both players then communicate in secret which character they intend to play in game one to this neutral party. The adjudicator then reveals which character both players selected. They are then locked to this character for game one.
    • Modified Daves Stupid Rule (MDSR) is in effect: You cannot counterpick the LAST stage you won on in a set.
    • Advanced Slob Picks (ASP) is in effect: Subsequent games will begin with the previous winner banning N stages (game specific) from the list of available stages (random plus counterpick), then the previous loser selects a stage, then the previous winner selects their character, finally the previous loser selects their character.
    • A player can select a stage that they themselves banned earlier in that set.
    • Any stage can be selected for play if all players are informed and agree to its selection.
    • Stalling tactics such are banned unless used for recovery.
    • Wobbling is allowed up to 300%.
    Melee

    4 Stock
    8 Minutes
    No Items
    1 stage ban (No bans in best of 5 sets)

    • If the timer runs out the player with the most stock left wins. In case of a stock tie the player with the lowest percentage wins. If the percentages are tied, the players will play a 1 stock, 3 minute game to settle the tie - this is to be played on the neutral stage (the stage struck to in game 1).Repeat these rules until there is a winner.

    Stagestriking will be used for game one. How does stagestriking work:

    • Whichever player has control decides who strikes first. The first player can strike a stage from the 5 random stages. Then the second player strikes 2 stages followed by the first player striking 1 more stage. One stage from the random stages will remain and this stage will be played for the first match.

    Random Stages (Singles):

    Battlefield
    Dream Land 64
    Final Destination
    Yoshi Story
    Fountain of Dreams

    Counterpicks (Singles):

    Pokémon Stadium

    Rules for teams:

    Team attack is on. Due to lag issues Fountain of Dreams will be replaced by Pokemon Stadium in the random stages.

    All other rules are the same as singles.

    Project: M

    Version: 3.6v

    4 Stock
    8 Minutes
    No Items
    1-2-1 stage bans for starters
    2 stage bans for counter pick

    • Giga Bowser and Wario Man are banned

    • If the timer runs out the player with the most stock left wins. In case of a stock tie the player with the lowest percentage wins. If the percentages are tied, the players will play a 1 stock, 3 minute game to settle the tie on the first stage played of the set. Repeat these rules until there is a winner.

    Stage striking as below;

    • First game: Winner of RPS strikes one stage from the starter list. Loser strikes two. Winner picks stage. Characters chosen first.

    My debit card was hacked and money stolen after registering for this. Probably some other online-store that leaked/abused the credentials, but still wanted to say. As this used paypal, which should be pretty safe one could assume.

    Hi Levingy. I'm on the TO team for Heir III. All registration payments are handled via Smash GG so we recommend contacting them if you think there's a problem. As you say the payment is actually handled by Paypal so it's unlikely to be a problem directly related to Smash GG. I'd also recommend reporting this to your local authorities if you haven't already.

    I hope this all gets sorted out and doesn't spoil your time at Heir III. We'll see you there. ;)

    Is there going to be any ticket from the registration and accomodation booking? I have done both, but I haven't received any kind of tickets/receipts for those. How are we going to prove we are who we say we are when we come to the place? How in practise will we get our accomodation when we arrive?

    EDIT:

    Well, I have the email receipt for the money transactions, but no official tickets
