Banned: Every thing else. If both players agree to play on a banned stage....its ok

Set format (In Order of Procedure):
1. Opponents choose their characters for the first match *
2. Opponents start the stage striking procedure
3. Each player may announce one stage to be banned for 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 from either the Starter Stage List or the Counter Stage List
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
*Double blind character selection may be called for the first match




The PAYOUT for 1vs1
1st=60%
2nd=30%
3rd=10%

if over 100 players

1st=55%
2nd=25%
3rd=10%
4th=5%
5th(x2)=2.5%

The PAYOUT for 2vs2
1st=60%
2nd=30%
3rd=10%

General rules:


3 Stock
7 minute timer
Items are set to "off" and "none"

All sets with the possible exception of winner's finals, loser's finals, and the championship are best of 3 matches (best of 5 and above is recommended for any "finals" matches)

In the event of a dispute(1vs1 or 2vs2), controller ports will be selected by Rock-Paper-Scissors

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

In team matches, the ports will be determined in a 1221 fashion.

If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage.

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.

By entering the tournament you agree to have any tournament matches be recorded if possible, and be uploaded without the need for consent by the players in the match. The only time a match can be requested not to be uploaded is with extraordinary occurrences such as a power outage during the match. Failure to abide by this rule can result in a DQ for a tournament match. Reasoning: I believe that if players attend tournaments and play with the potential ability to win money at the expense of the community, the community is allowed to watch matches that are part of these tournaments that had money on the line.

::Banned Techs::

DeDeDe's Infinite grab. You CANNOT Chain grab IN PLACE. NOT EVEN ONCE

Infinite wall grabs. Do not chain grab a foe against a wall more than once without letting them go after the FIRST grab.

Bowser/Ganon suicide attacks. If these moves are used to end a match and a sudden death is then started. Bowser/ Ganon will be declared the winners.


Stalling is banned*

*Stalling: The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling. Plainking is a perfect example. If i see it, you WILL lose your ENTIRE SET. No warnings! Play, dont gay.

Ledge Grab Limit Rule*

*Assuming i have a meta legal event, ALL METAKNIGHTs that enter a match will be under the LGL rule. Metaknights are allowed to grab the ledge a TOTAL of 55 times PER MATCH. The numbers can be viewed AFTER a match on the results screen. If you exceed the limit even by a single ledge grab you will lose your entire SET or match( the TO will decide). However, this rule can be ignored if BOTH players agree.

BONUS features

BONUS Feature 1: At HOBO 17, not a single OOS/OON player could break top 4 in 1vs1 singles! This means they did not get the EXTRA 150$ set aside for them. Now the stakes are even HIGHER. If an OOS/OON player reaches top 3 at HOBO 18, they will recieve a BONUS of 200$(maybe more). Will texas stay undefeated?


BONUS Feature 2: Xyro and Inui challenge ANY and ALL low tier team to a 5$ MM.

I wish that pot bonus extended a little further than top three. I don't know if I can do that without my MK. Maybe 5th or 4th... >_>;

Top five is normally paid out, right?

Low tier singles???

If it reaches over 100, it's top5 payout. Hobo17 had just over 100, so top5 got paid.

If we do pools please don't forget to mention the people who didn't make it out of pools Xyro. I know it's demoralizing to a couple of people who didn't get to make it out.

I'm willing to do this for you, give me ALL the results of the pools papers, and I'll put them myself on results for you.


AKA people who went 0-2 the whole way = lowest placing.

People with 1 win only = 2nd lowest

People with 2 wins = 3rd lowest


So on and so forth. It seriously takes like 20 minutes to do and I wouldn't mind doing it for you.

UTD Zac, stay at DugFinn's house.

I'll be there starting on Wednesday morning.

I want to train with you and get used to your style and stuff like that. We can also strategize.

Awesome, I'm actually confirmed. Not like I'll ask my parents later. I AM! FIRST HOBO!

Also, if you're not staying for lock-down, when do you have to leave? And you can't buy food in venue?

If my memory serves me correctly, they usually keep the place open until 1AM for normal business, so assuming nothing changes...

And they sell food there, but you can't bring outside food. It's a silly rule, but whatever, there's a ton of eating places along Westheimer.

No low tier singles, that will be added to World HOBO 2.
Ill extend the BONUS to top 4.
Top 5 will be paid out if 100 show up.

will melee have teams? if not it should.
Melee will ONLY be ran IF the melee players bring thier own set-ups. No melee 2vs2.

Xyro can you put a link to the Southwest travel plans group in the OP. It will greatly help us organize who's driving with who and who's housing with who, etc...

Thanks!
yes sir. i will do it now.

Awesome, I'm actually confirmed. Not like I'll ask my parents later. I AM! FIRST HOBO!

Also, if you're not staying for lock-down, when do you have to leave? And you can't buy food in venue?
If you DO NOT stay for the lock-in, you MUST leave by 1am.

I want to but im kinda saving WORLD HOBO 2 for that board. I will make the thread right after HOBO 18 is done.

First time I played in a non MK tournament I broke top 10.
The second time I broke top 5.
The third time I broke top 3.

Shiit this is gonna be hard. :)
i may have to unban meta if you keep this up.

me and shlike wanna mm you guys in low tier teams. ye or nay?
accepted.

i shall be there


dk/rob/wario/snake/diddy/GAW/marth/d3 shall win this XD

I pay out top four if 50 people show up and top five if 64+ show up. I really hope you pay out to at least 4th. Paying out only top three if 70-99 people show up would be super lame. >_>;

I'm glad the bonus is extended to 4th. Thanks. I'm gunning for that! I need it!

I wish there was low tier singles! Argh!

Ok, in place of low tier singles, I will MM anyone's low tiers (including Sonic) for any amount with my Ike at this! Just ask me at the event and I will do it!

If me and Dojo both do well without MK, it just shows that it's us and not MK!

Well, actually, it's already obvious I do well with other characters, I just use MK for certain match-ups. >_>;
