BAM8



Smash 4, Smash Melee and many other fighters. (more smash possibly to come too!)

Many of the best international players are coming, do you have what it takes?

WHEN/WHERE?:

May 13-15
CQ Hotel, Melbourne CBD

Registration will 100% required, there will be no on the day entrants

http://couchwarriors.org/wp/bam8/bam8-registration/

The Smash TO's have come to a decision that there will be NO on site registration for bam8. Registration will cut off 1 week before the event, that is on Friday 6th May 11:59 pm.

This is due the the massive influx of talented players we are to expect and thus we need to handle seeding and scheduling with care. A lot of work will be put towards making sure players can play multiple events with minimal clashes and that seeding is fair.

WHERE TO STAY IF TRAVELLING?:

Housing:

Please post in this thread or try on the VIC Facebook group in order to sort housing, every person for themselves!

Accomidation:

Best bet's to use wotif to find the best deals anywhere in melbourne CBD

RULESETS:

For basic rules, such as venue rules, player behavour, equipment and all the rest, we are using the APEX 2015 ruleset:

http://www.meleeitonme.com/img/Apex_2015_rulebook.pdf

Refer specifically to the "II. General Rules for Super Smash Bros. Games" Section for the majority of relevant rules

As for specific game rules, they can be found below:

Smash 4:

TBA

Smash Melee:

A. Game Settings
● Stocks: 4
● Time Limit: 8 minutes

B. Stage List Starter Stages
● Yoshi’s Story
● Fountain of Dreams (singles only)
● Battlefield
● Final Destination
● Dream Land
● Pokémon Stadium (doubles only)

Counterpick Stages
● Pokémon Stadium
● Kongo Jungle 64 (doubles only)

C. Additional Rules
● Stage Striking: Players eliminate stages from the Starter/Neutral list until there is one stage remaining. The player/team without port priority strikes first. Then the other player/team strikes two stages. Then the player/team with port priority strikes one more stage and the remaining stage is used for the first game of the set.
● Stage Bans: After each game of the set, before counterpicking, the player who won the previous game may ban one stage from either the starter or counterpick list. This rule is not in effect for best of 5 sets.
● Stage Clause: A player/team may not pick any stage they previously won on during the set.
● Neutral Start: Players may elect to move to opposite sides of the stage and then count down prior to starting the match.
● Wobbling is legal


GUESTS AND DONATIONS:

Last year was huge for Melee, with a list like this after raising over $10,000:

So does this mean that if no one sets up a Melee donation drive, there are no Melee players coming? Or is one happening down the line.

Either way, I don't really mind

To tell the truth, it'd be really nice to have an all Oz bracket with our top 20 attending.

Is the CQ offering discounts on anyone entering the CW tournaments or is that not a thing anymore?
The discount is usually laughable. Plus no free parking. Plus paper thin walls. Plus $100 deposit on credit which never gets refunded on time.
CQ pretty much blows but I always end up staying there lol.

Looking for people to house me over the period i'll be in melb (may 5 - May 17)
Doesn't have to be for the whole time, if you can only house over 2 or 3 days or something like that please let me know,
If homies like splice/jamwa/dom/max/melb illuminati could get back to me w/ info that'd be sick

I applied for the Air Force, and if I get in I won't be able to make it to this or any other event for a long time. However I will try to donate money to prize pools or somehow get TV's sent to TO's when I get the cash.

I have Nikes, Gords and Ghost staying at mine for BAM weekend to my knowledge. Atyeo (if he needs it) always has a place in my house and my heart <3

edit: I have no idea why I posted this here, I'll move it to the housing thread.
