EVO 2009: Brawl
Sponsored by AllisBrawl

Full Announcement on AllisBrawl

Why should you attend All is Brawl’s first sponsored national tournament?
1. Rules in line with the community standards
2. The tournament will be run by JV and Nealdt (with a little AlphaZealot on the side). This combination of tournament organizers is the best that Smash has to offer.
3. The partnership with EVO provides Smash with a great prime time venue the likes of which have not been witnessed since MLG’s 2006 season (unless you count other EVO events).
4. Multiple other games available to enter or spectate. View the best players from other games like Street Fighter 4 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Meet your traditional fighting game brethren. EVO isn’t just a tournament, it is a gaming convention!
5. This is the weekend after Genesis and Supercon! So let’s say you are heading out west to California for that national tournament, why not stop by Las Vegas while you’re in the neighborhood before heading home? That’s what I plan to do, at least. Make it a couple weeks to remember by hitting two top flight amazing tournaments in back to back weekends.
Tournament Details

Location: The tournament will be held at the RIO Hotel and Casino in the fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.

BRAWL SINGLES AND DOUBLES RULES

Singles/General

* 3 Stock, 8 Minute Time Limit (If time does expire, the winner will be determined by first stock, then percentage. In the event both are tied Sudden Death will be played out.)

* Best of 3 until Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket Semifinals are reached. Winners and Losers Bracket Semifinals and Finals are best of 5

* No Items

* No stalling (via ledge or otherwise). Any infinite chain grabs must be ended after 300% has been reached as to prevent excessive stalling. Avoiding a reachable position of combat to purposely run the timer is stalling.

* Standing infinites are banned only when used to stall.

* No player/team may counterpick a stage you have already won on earlier in the current set.

* In the event of a dispute, controller ports, colors, and stage strike selection order will be determined by Rock-Paper-Scissors.

* Your controller, settings, and name tag are your responsibility prior to the start of the match. Always check you are using the correct settings and everything is working BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller functions or incorrect settings, it must be agreed upon by both parties.

* Any action that can prevent an in progress game from continuing (i.e., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, touching the equipment, 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 will be held responsible for triggering one of these effects or any conduct preventing the match from finishing.

* Metaknight’s Infinite Cape glitch is banned.

* If a player successfully ends the match with either Bowser or Ganondorf’s over B attack by suicide, then the player who initiated the move wins. If a player ends the match by swallowing with King DeDeDe or Kirby, and it counts as a tie the player whom initiated the swallowing wins. Unless the character breaks out prior to death and is shown winning the match. In which case, that stands as the correct result.

Set Format (In Order of Procedure):

1. Players choose their characters for the first match*
2. Players start the stage striking procedure**
3. The first game is played, using the stage chosen during step 2
4. Each Player/Team may announce one stage to be banned during counterpicks
5. The losing Player/Team of the previous match announces the next match’s stage from either the Starter Stage List or the Counter Stage List
6. The winning Player/Team of the previous match chooses their character/s
7. The losing Player/Team of the previous match chooses their character/s
8. Repeat steps 5-7 until the best of 3 or best of 5 set is complete.

*Double blind character selection may be called for the first match. In which case the players will each write down their characters on a sheet of paper and exchange them.

**One Player/Team will strike 1 stage, then their opponent will strike another 2 stages, leaving 2 stages in which the first team will strike 1 leaving one to be played on.

Neutral Stages:

* Battlefield
* Final Destination
* Smashville
* Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
* Pokemon Stadium(Melee)

Counterpick Stages:


* Delfino Plaza
* Castle Siege
* Battleship Halberd
* Frigate Orpheon
* Rainbow Cruise
* Brinstar
* Lylat Cruise
* Jungle Japes

Doubles

Same standard rules and stages as singles.

* Stock sharing is allowed.

* Team Attack is on.

* In team matches, the ports will be selected in a 1221 fashion. Meaning a player from Team 1 (if need be Rock/Paper/Scissors can be used to determine this Team) will select one port first, then both players from Team 2 will make their selection, then the remaining player from Team 1.

* If a player on a team is using a character that might make it tough to determine the teams color (like Sonic, Lucario, or Pokemon Trainer), then either team is allowed to request an alternate color be used prior to the start of the match in order to limit any potential confusion.

indeed, they have multiple street fighters they shud have multple smashbros games
Except Evo and the SRK community absolutely despise Smash. Street Fighter on the other hand...

This should be good. I think I heard M2K will be there. I'm guessing WC will be there too? And SK92?

This tournament is sponsored by AllisBrawl, so there wouldn't even be Smash if not for that. Since it is sponsored, part of the deal is AiB gets to decide how it is run/what the rules are for the game, not EVO.

GUYS TRY TO REGISTER BEFORE THE 31st OF MAY BECAUSE AFTER THAT THE COST GOES UP $20!!!! REGISTER EARLY SPREAD THE WORD.'

ALSO: there is a BYOC (Bring your own console) area at EVO. Last year Guilty Gear, which wasn't part of the tournament, held a tournament in the BYOC area that I believe had ~70 people. If Melee players come and do the same they may get Melee readded in the same regard that Guilty Gear was.

What can we expect for Melee friendlies/tourny? Do they hold side tournaments? Can we get them to run Melee too. I will be in the area during this time, what can a Melee only player expect to see?

White Bread: there is a BYOC area (bring your own console, not "controller"). In this area if you get the people organized you can run a Melee tournament. Its up to whoever shows to organize it though. There was a 50-70ish person tournament run in this area for GG last year.

Looks like fun :p, seems like even more competitors than Genesis. This is cheaper, but Genesis will be more epic. I've heard that a lot of international smashers will be @ Genesis, so I can't wait to see what happens there & what will happen @ EVO.

Am I the only one that thinks this is a little sketchy?

Well, that depends on your description of 'surviving'.

Is surviving "taking a vanilla colored dump on Smashboards?"
Is surviving "the mess that was the Genesis thread?"

I guess we survived :laugh:
