SIDE EVENT

UPDATE: Project M Singles is confirmed for the side event on friday.

We've yet to decide the offical side events for the tournament but there is basically room for two: one on friday and the other on sunday. It's basically all up to which game/format gets the most attention. I'll go ahead and list some possibilities:

1. Melee Low Tiers
2. Melee Crews (it probably doesn't take that much time so it could be played after singles on saturday)
3. Project M Singles
4. Project M Doubles
5. Brawl of some sort (if there are enough Brawl players participating)
6. A universal game tournament (a collection of some hilarious challenges from various games familiar to you)

FEES AND PRIZES

Entry fee for tournament players: 5€
Melee Singles: 5€
Melee Doubles: 5€
In total = 15€

Melee Singles
1st: 60%
2nd: 30%
3rd: 10%
4th: 5€

Melee Doubles

Project M Singles

2nd: 30%
3rd: 10%

The entry fee will be used to cover organizing costs.

VENUE AND SLEEPING

There are a few fridges, a microwave and an oven as you'd expect but no stoves. They're all free to use.

Showers will be usable onwards from 23:00 on friday till the end of the tournament.

For friday-saturday night, only people from abroad may sleep at the venue which offically closes at 02:00 for other people who will be housed by the organizers and other volunteers. As for saturday-sunday night, the venue is open throughout the night but the sleeping limit still enforced, so only people from abroad may sleep there but in additon, there are extra 15 spots for people playing late into the night.

MELEE RULES JA FORMAT

The format will unsuprisingly be in style of one round of pools to double elimination bracket whose size is yet to be determined. Tentative pools will be posted at least a few day before the tournament but they may still change slightly in case of impacting players registering late. The pools will be seeded using the finnish seeding points, the finnish PR and most importantly, common sense and knowledge regarding players from abroad.

- 4 Stocks.
- 8 minute time limit.
- Items off.
- Team Attack will be ON.
- Life stealing allowed.
- Bring your own controller.
- 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.
- Controller Mods, Glitches, and tactics used to stall a match (wall-bombing, rising pound), are banned.
- Wobbling is allowed up to 300%.
- No coaching during a match. Consulting someone between matches is allowed as long as it doesn’t hold up the next match.
- Controller port is determined by Rock Paper Scissors if it can’t be agreed upon.
- Either player may call for a Double Blind character selection for the first match.
- Stage Striking: Players eliminate stages from the Neutral Stage List until only 1 remains, and the players then play the first match on that stage. Players strike stages in P1 P2 P2 P1 order.
- Advanced Slob Picks: Loser may choose the next stage or select to go random. The winner may then change their character, followed by the loser.
- Such Modified Dave's Stupid Rule That I Don't Even Know Anymore: No player can counterpick the stage he or she last won on on his own counterpick unless agreed upon by both players.
- For Bo3 sets, each player gets one stage ban.
- For Bo5 sets, there are no stage bans.
- Bo3 Sets in pools and first round in brackets.
- Bo5 Sets in all bracket games after that.

It would be cool to have either PM or 6.
I don't see why adding Brawl would be necessary since there will probably be a tournament dedicated to Brawl in the same venue later this year :) (yaaay)

I added a poll to smashfinland.com concerning the side event for friday night. You don't have to register there to take part in it as you may list here what you would like to see there. I also don't mind if someone lists the votes of multiple registered/interested players, I only hope you don't lie about them :p The listed events are:

1. Melee Low Tiers
2. Melee Hippitournament (all stages, random characters and two items of choice)
3. Project M Singles
4. Project M Doubles
5. Wacky Game Tournament (a collection of fun tasks from various classic games)
6. Something else, what? (Please specify)

You may vote for multiple events and change your votes even after casting them. The vote will last for 7 days.

I am a bit confused on what information to give but I think I got everything covered.

I would like to register "IKEA" from sweden for melee singels, sleeping venue and whatever side event that will be picked. If we get a vote I vote for PM singles. If not, I am still up for side events :)

Yeah, you got it right. I also extended the time for voting with a week since there's a lot of people we haven't yet heard of.

SWEDEN, AWAKEN!

I'd like to note that the cap of 40 has been exceeded in sleeping spots at the venue but please don't mind it and let us still know if you need a spot. There are a lot of arranged places to sleep nearby so everything will be sorted out in the end even if the list grows even bigger.

Yess, big thanks for you for doing this! I'm sorry I haven't been in touch with you but Novi assured to me he's got everything covered :]

On another note, I'd like to clarify the sleeping situation at the venue. As you know, I've previously stated that 40 people can sleep there, which is still correct, but we're going to lower the amount of reservations to 30. Why? Some people like to play all night long to the point when it's hard to travel around anymore by public transport and they also can't sleep at the venue anymore since it's reserved full. That's why we decided to give 10 spaces to the people who want to play really long into the night so they don't have to get themselves lost in Helsinki trying to find to one of our other sleeping locations. I'm going to give my last car ride to an agreed housing place the latest of 02:00 when I'm going to sleep too.

It should be no problem if you know where you've been agreed to sleep and make your way there on time, we'll be sure to give everyone a good place. Especially foreigners probably don't have to worry about anything, you've got the priority to sleep in the venue. Just clarifying the situation.

Also, Project M SIngles has been confirmed as the side event for friday starting at 17:00 tentatively.

I hope, i understand it right. But better ask: Am I able to sleep in the venue?

Oh, and my name is Liva (can't edit my nickname here) :)

Frozenlight and me are interested. We would like to stay longer than just a weekend, so if someone could house us near of the venue/in the city for a few days that would be great.

I will participate in Melee, also Brawl if there is a tournament.

I don't yet want to say I'll house you (even though I wanted to lawl) since I'm probably quite busy before and after the tournament but I bet there's a few people who will gladly house you guys. If no one willing pops up I guess I'll try to take you in whether I'm busy or not.

I'll gladly play Brawl anytime at the venue even if there isn't a tournament for it.

Yeah, there is definitely space for everyone somewhere. It looks like that every foreigner still fits in the venue as far as sleeping goes.

Can anyone bring 2 Displays for my computer? (1 for me, 1 for commentators)
My displays are to heavy for the flight (and also it's dangerous because of damage).

Does anyone know the venue and can answer some questions i have?

I'm sure that at least some brawlers are willing to play friendlies and possibly MMs with you. At least I'm down to that. 2-3€ ZSS - Wario and Samus - Donkey Kong ?
Unfortunately I can not provide housing since we're already having other guests during that weekend.

I am confident we could get those 2 displays from the venue itself, need to confirm it though.

Under a week till the tournament!

Some updates regarding sleeping and such:
- During friday-saturday night, only people from abroad may sleep at the venue. Everyone else will be provided housing by the organizers or other volunteers.
- During saturday-sunday night, there are no restrictions regarding sleeping and the venue will offically be open throughout the night.
- There's an 24 hour shop very close to the venue so there is no need to buy loads of stuff and cram them all into the limited fridge space we have.

Also, if you know some teams that haven't signed up yet, please tell!
