First tournament tips?

What are some tips for someone who is soon going to attend their very first smash 4 tournament?

I ask because I am going to attend my first tournament in a little under a month, and I have no idea what to expect. I play semicompetatively among my friends, and I've gotten pretty good at fighting them (they're also good players). How different is fighting strangers from fighting people I know? What should I watch out for?

I plan on bringing DDD as my main, and Luigi as a secondary.

Discussion here is dead. But to answer your question, just go and have fun. You'll probably do awful like most people at their first tournament but that's okay, you're there to learn. I can't give you any specific advice really as I don't play Smash 4 competitively at all.
