Submissions: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=264481

__________

Crews:


Melee Legends (New Crews Concept)


Brawl Champions (details TBA)

__________


Brawl rules:

•3-stock
•8-minute timer
•No Items

Starters:
Final Destination
Battlefield
Yoshi's DS
Lylat
Smashville
+2 customs to be decided by contest being run by overswarm

Counterpicks:
Pokemon Stadium 1
Castle Seige
Halberd
Delifino
Frigate Orpheon
Rainbow Cruise
+3 customs which will come from the same contest

- All sets are best of three, except winners and losers semi-final and finals as well as grand finals which are best of 5.

- Controller ports are decided by coin flip.

- No player may choose a stage they have already won on in that set unless
agreed upon.

- If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by
percentage. If there is still a tie then a 1-stock 4-minute match will be played on the same stage

Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned. That means this can't even be used to avoid invincibility at the beginning of the stock (to avoid confusion).

DDD's standing chaingrabs are ALLOWED.

You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility, so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you're using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller functions, it must be agreed upon by both parties.

Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing,
disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that
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.

Any infinite chain grabs must end quickly after 300% has been reached

Beginning of the set:
1. Opponents choose their characters via double blind pick
2. Opponents start the stage striking procedure each player will alternate striking a
stage until there is 1 left. That stage is played first round. THERE IS NO RANDOM UNLESS IT AGREED UPON BY BOTH PARTIES.
3. Each player may announce one stage to be banned from the counterpicks of the set
4. The first game is played, using the stage chosen during step 2
5. The loser of the previous match announces the next match's stage.
6. The winner of the previous match chooses their character
7. The loser of the previous match chooses their character
8. Repeat steps 5-7 for all proceeding matches

Suicide Rules:
If Bowser, Kirby, Ganon, Wario or D3 suicides someone off the stage, the match is awarded to the character initiating the suicide.

The Mages DQ rule: (Will be VERY rigidly enforced)
2 minutes late: Warning
4 minutes late: Loss of first match of the set
6 minutes late: Loss of set

Color Blind rule: Should a player have a color-based disability, he or she
may request in a teams match to have a specific color for their team. This is
so characters such as Lucario or Sonic can be granted the blue team so that
there is not unnecessary confusion.

Wiimotes and Classic Controller users must take batteries out when not playing a match. (Please, if at all possible, avoid using these during the tournament)

Brawl+ is so silly.

I hope they don't nerf Jiggs before this tournament. Once I learn that Falcon matchup, it's done.

Anyone else notice the stage lists (+2 custom stages)

Yea I gotta see how this works out for the tournament
No worries they will all be extensively tested and available before the tournament so as to assure no stupid **** is happening.

Jake you just made me so happy.

And Doom. The aren't changing characters anymore for awhile. They're simply cleaning up coding errors. The closest thing to a NERF being considered currently is Jigg's Uthrow isn't supposed to KO. It was never meant to KO just to eliminate the Uthrow Uair Rest combo. So they're going to tweak that. But it's really not a nerf so much as a fix. Other than that unless they find something completely broken(and I don't mean like most people use the word broken) nothing is changing. Just refining the code a bit if it needs it.

Sweet this might evolve the future of counterpicking for Brawl

Good luck with creating and testing each stage, and also if so could I get a link to this contest Overswarm is hosting, heck if I could submit a stage Ill might do so

I'm working on the contest guidelines as we speak. :)

We'll have plenty of time. There will be prizes available (even a free singles entry to this event....), all the custom stages chosen will have reports written personally by me with videos to test them. This includes an actual custom stage tournament, so you know they aren't just friendlies!

lol. Not gunna happen. I saw a thread where Pierce was trying to argue it with them. They discussed it heavily before they made that change from what I understand and had reasons to do it.

I've never been a Marth player and I'm not now. So I can't really tell how bad it is. but it seems SHFFFair would be a fine replacement, and it cuts down on excessive Fair Camping. And most of Marth's combos in plus have always seemed vertical. I'd imagine horizontal combos FFing covers SHDF.

I hate the Brawl+ mindset that defensive = bad. There's rewarding defensive play in every fighting game ever...they've already removed so much of it, taking out a character's bread and butter wall is really ridiculous. Marth doesn't have any good grounded wall moves besides dtilt (which is intended to be used in conjunction with fairs), how is he going to keep his opponent out efficiently if he either has to wait to throw one fair out (leaves a large opening at the beginning of his jump) and then fast fall dtilt, or short hop instant fair and have a significant gap between the fair ending and his landing? :/

If Marth's boxing game was good, this wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, it isn't. He's a character that revolves around space. Btw, even though his combos are vertical, up throw hardly combos on anything that falls slower than Squirtle, and the best he'll get is a two-three hit combo since his uair has such enormous ending time. His horizontal combo game is greatly degraded with the removal of SH double fair.

Def not doing regional crews, those will take place at one of the 7 majors in the 7 months before this one. Draft crews maybe if we have 3-days but i've tried this before and it failed horribly.

So...non-hacked custom stages?

I'm gonna go make a bunch now, I'm too cheap.
Yes. These will be playable and creatable without hacks.

(please don't use the sky background; it creates a "pluck" delay for Olimar's pikmin)

Draft crews at nationals = ridiculous, unless it's exclusive to the people who got into brackets (and it's a 48 man or less bracket)

Edit: Yeah Swift, I tend to get carried away when I write about simple topics. <_<
