NEW DATES - 3rd April - 7th April

B.E.A.S.T IS BACK.
For the third time, we are here to give you guys an awesome smash tournament with all that includes. We will do everything we can to make it at least as good as the last two tournaments, all we need is for you to attend, what kind of tournament would it be without you?!

- Great view of the finals from the big projector screen.
- Project M and SSB side tournaments
- Lots and lots of hype.
- MARIO PARTY.
- Backrubs.


When?

Where?
Gothenburg, Sweden.


The Venue:
Nya Påvelundsskolan
Ängkärrsvägen 22, 426 77 VÄSTRA FRÖLUNDA

Traveling by plane?
If your looking to go by Ryanair, you want to check for Gothenburg City Airport. From there, you take the airport buss to the Central station.

Local Transportation:
When you get to the Central station (Centralstationen), you take tram number 11 towards Saltholmen to Käringberget. The easiest way to buy tickets is to get to Tidpunkten, in the middle of Drottningtorget (Centralstationen), and buy your ticket there!
To plan your travel, use This site
(A small map on the surroundings will also come up here soon)

Timed out matches will be determined by the remaining number of lives, then percentage of the current stock. In the event of a percentage tie, replay that match. Any Sudden Death match is strictly not to be played.

Modified Dave's Stupid Rule: No player can counter pick the stage he or she last won on unless agreed upon by both players.
Team Attack will be ON.
Life stealing allowed.

We know that we need a rule for the pools standings, and we are currently asking around to see how we will settle this matter. Rest assured that we will have cleared that up before the tournament.

The Tournament Host is the arbiter of all disputes.

Neutrals 1v1:
Final Destination
Yoshi's Story
Dreamland
Battlefield
Fountain of Dreams

Neutrals 2v2:
Final Destination
Yoshi's Story
Dreamland
Battlefield
Pokemon Stadium

Counterpicks 1v1:
Pokémon Stadium

Counterpicks 2v2:
None


General Rules:
I have already mentioned that I will be quite strict indeed with the times. I can't stand people not showing up on time or being generally confused. People should know the things they need to know, and if they don't, they shall ask me, or someone else in the crew.
Other then that, I want everyone to behave mature and I will let you know that I can throw anyone out for any reasons if I feel like it.
Since this is a public building, I will see no alcohol or drugs taken into it. This is strictly forbidden and will have major consequences, including the owner of the alcohol/drugs getting thrown out and banned from the tournament. You also can't smoke inside the building, but I count on people having enough common knowledge not to do that.
I'm going to add a rule here from last time, and I will make myself very, very clear.
Again, you ARE NOT ALLOWED to bring alcohol or drugs into the building. Also, you ARE NOT ALLOWED to be under the effects of drugs or alcohol, meaning you may not be drunk or high inside the school.


Sleeping:
Sleeping during the tournament will be at the venue! There are no beds, but there's plenty of floor space and some couches. I recommend you to bring an air matress and a sleeping bag.


Showers:
We have showers! Yes, separate for girls and guys, do not worry.


Random information:
If you need housing, post in the housing thread to come up. We will fix it for ya.
http://smashboards.com/threads/b-e-a-s-t-iii-housing-thread.334745/
^This thread right here.

Nuts are banned due to it being a public building.

For those who didn't know; we have SEK here in Sweden, not euro. 1 Euro is about 10 SEK.

A local store and a Pizza is located about 5 minutes from the venue, easy as hell to find.

There will be a stream with commentators, more info coming soon.

Yeah this was the only dates we could take though.
AND I think it can be a good idea that the people that wanna go to both tournaments should fly from Gothenbuth to the US.

That way it is cheaper then flying home after Beast and then go to America.
Well this tournament will be really good (better then the two last ones) so everyone need to come =)

I think anyone who goes to this, then Apex immediately afterwards, should get a medal.

Thats gonna be one huge smash-momentum if Apex can be counted as After-party 8). Well, most likely I ain't going to America, I'm really interested about BEAST. Last time was too good. Much depends on are other finns coming or how many people overally choose to go Apex instead of this event. And also: I need to confirm can I get a team mate.

But yeah, Interested :)

dafuq?


Make sure you find the Teams thread for B.E.A.S.T too, and sign up there when you have found your teammate! This makes us able to seed and prepare beforehand and if you've written in the thread you are guaranteed to get a seed matching your skill level.

stop beeing lazy and just link it maybe?


edit: oh and btw, not sure how you did it for beast2 but you should get some more people to work on the pools and brackets, beast1 pools were awful

Wow d(^^)b for Lolex and everyone else making this happen!
I'm definitely going!
Beast 2 was my first tournament and it was such a great experience I HAVE to attend Beast 3!

If there was a fund to let Mango come and face off against EU players during this tournament we might get alot more ppl to come!
I'd put some dollars in it for sure.

Luma: Beast 2 had pretty much perfect pools/bracket so I don't think it will be a problem =)

Just another ban in Sweden's ongoing persecution campaign against nuts and nut lovers of any kind.
Pro tip: If they catch you in the airport with a pack of nuts, better prepare to spend the next 6 months in a Swedish prison.

I don't know why it did went wrong that time but we came up with a system to make sure stuff like that will not happen again.

But tbh Sweden overall has the best seedning if you ask me but that is maybe because Sweden is one of the countries with most connection to the other countries. But anyway I can promise you that it will not happen again.

If we have a system that fix the problem from the beginning I don't really need to know why/who ****ed up the last time because.

So we know what went wrong but the reason behind is probably because we had little time to set it up. With this system we can see from the begining if something is wrong so it will be good =)

We have the veneue that early so people can get housing if they need to. Tickets maybe is cheaper and some people maybe need that to be able to go. The tournament starts 4th of January so it's not like anyone have to run from the New Year party anway :p

the flights gonna cost so much since its new years -.- worst date.. I know its the christmas holidays but why not February?

Normally flights to Gothernburg are £20-50
To go and leave on the dates suggested it'd cost £110, the only cheap flight is going December 31 and I clearly don't want to miss out spending new years with friends/family.

I might not come cause of this, and I doubt a lot of good european smashers will be able to cause its January 2nd :/ might be just Sweden and Denmark mostly in this case

We have the veneue 2 days in advance IF anyone would like to fly a bit earlier. The tournament starts 4th of January so that maybe helps a little bit. If it turns out the dates is really bad for all of Europe me and Lolex maybe needs to sit down and talk about it.

But flying to Gothenburg 2nd of January is not necessary.
