Additional Info​


We will try to accommodate by moving matches in place of yours if something comes up, but we will only give you 3 strikes if you take more than 10 mins or it becomes inconvenient for us or your opponent.

After that, you will lose privileges or even get DQ'ed (the latter will probably take priority if the former still doesn't make any sense); hence keep track of where you are in the bracket or inform us of the situation WELL BEFORE your match starts if any of the previously mentioned (something else) occurs.

All we really ask is that you warn us beforehand so nothing gets held up too long.



PS: THIS IS IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY DURING POOLS. WE MIGHT BE STRICTER DURING POOLS SINCE THAT USUALLY IS THE REASON TOURNAMENTS ARE HELD UP. THIS METHOD MIGHT BE CHILDISH BUT IF YOU DON'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS, THEN WE WILL TREAT YOU LIKE ONE.

Games:
Brawl January 30th!

Melee January 31st!

Anything anyone else wants to bring, we will have the venue from 10 AM to 2 AM, side tourneys are completely welcome and encouraged.

BRAWL RULES:

There will be seeding through pools. If there is a good size, then it will be a pool elimination but if the the turnout is low, then there will be no elimination if time permits.

Stages:

Starters:
  • Battlefield
  • Final Destination
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Halberd
  • Lylat Cruise
  • Smashville
  • Pokémon Stadium

Counterpicks:
  • Delfino Plaza
  • Frigate Orpheon
  • Castle Siege
  • Pictochat
  • Jungle Japes
  • Rainbow Cruise
  • Brinstar

Official Rules
  • 3 Stock
  • 8 minute timer
  • Items are set to "off" and "none"
  • All sets with the exception of winner's finals, loser's finals, and the championship are best of 3 matches (best of 5 and above should be played out for any "finals" matches)
  • In the event of a dispute, 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; whoever wins the RPS will choose first, then the opposing team will get their ports, and then the teammate of the RPS winner will get the last port.
  • If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage.
  • Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned.
  • If a game ends with a suicide and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for the initiator of the suicide.
  • 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.
  • 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, while doing an infinite grab endlessly against a wall is. Any infinite chain grabs must end quickly after 300% has been reached so as to prevent excessive stalling.


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

Other


Stage Striking will be in effect for the first match of the set. The player with the lower port will get to choose the first strike. Loser choses ban before next match.


One ban per player per set. To be chosen after loss.

Modified DSR: You cannot go back to the last stage you won in a set, unless agreed upon by the other player.


The player choice clause!:: If both players agree to a rule outside of my ruleset, feel free to play by that. If one player wants to counterpick Mute City and the other player is fine with that because they think it's a fair stage, then that is more than fine. However in the event the two players disagree, house rules stand.


Double blind for character selection may be used if a player wants to.​


Other Rules & Special Issues

Controller mods of ANY kind (short-hop mod, L-trigger mod, etc),
except for cosmetic changes (paint job, different colored plastic), are
banned. If you are caught using a banned controller you will be
disqualified from the tournament.

Turbo or programmed buttons of any kind are banned. You may use
third party controllers or pads that have these features, but if you
are suspected of using the banned features you will not be allowed to
use that controller any longer.

Tactics such as Peach's Wallbombing and Jiggly's Rising Pound are
allowed as methods of recovery or to manuever around the stage. Using
them (or any similar tactics) to excessively stall a match, such as
droping below levels intentionally and stalling underneath, is banned.
Judges will be on the tournament floor can be called in at any time to
enforce this rule during a match.

You are responsible to BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER.

HYPE HYPE HYPE!!!!! Hell yeah, nice work Rauleen and Milk! <3 <3 <3

Nice that you guys found a venue... mine pooped on my face and it was sad.


At any rate, this post looks sexy and this tournament will be pwnage! Great work!


I can house about 4 or 5 or so people in my living room, most likely. Let's get some out of staters!



I whipped you guys up a quick banner to put at the top, if you want. For extra sexiness! If you don't want it, it's no big deal, it didn't take me very long.





Also I posted in the Iowa and Kansas threads to let them know that this is here and STL wants their hawt sex to be present :)

Will - trying to play it all cool. You're (lol deku) not fooling me, buddy. I know you put your heart and soul into that image rofl.

I might come to this since the venue fee is much more reasonable (assuming the food fee is not mandatory). If I do I can bring a full set-up and an extra TV. I will also talk to others about coming (in their pants).

Hooray, it's Affinity! Sexi-sexi sex-sex!

Personally, I have no problem with Pictochat or Japes. I would personally prefer to do without the others, but it's not a big deal for them to be there either... except Distant Planet. I have no idea why that's there. lol

YES I'm coming to this and going ALL GANON **** YOU ROB YOU CAN'T HANDLE MK!

As for the stages... please keep Pirate Ship legal. I know it doesn't deserve to be legal, but I sure as hell want it to be. If PS and Norfair are both legal, Ganon will have TWO counterpick stages! Top tier, son!

Wow, and I feel super dumb. :(

Also, regarding the stage list, I'm open for complete discussion, I hate DP and Pirate Ship, so let's hear it.
Don't let Deku get you down, Milk :p



As for stages, the neutrals here are fine, but my personal vote for the CP list would be:


* Delfino Plaza
* Frigate Orpheon
* Castle Siege
* Pictochat
* Jungle Japes
* Rainbow Cruise
* Brinstar

Norfair can be really really lame for certain characters (Metaknight, Game & Watch, etc.).

It sucks because some people do well there against other characters, but it's just pretty broken for others. Personally I don't mind Norfair THAT much, but my preference is against it.




Also, for anyone who wants to, here is the code you will need to put in your signature to make a link to this thread and use the banner for your sig so that people can click it to check out the tournament info!

Looks awesome! I will be at this and I can host some people.

I can house at least two cars of people (maybe three). But they better be ****ing cool people
Iowa? Kansas?

Also, doing colors in that bombass way that I did up there is really torturous, so I don't recommend that anyone try to be as cool as me and do it.

Edit - The stagelist could kinda be changed a little.

No norfair. Ballin.

I question 7 starters and 7 counterpicks. Shouldn't it be 5 starters and 9 counterpicks???

But if that didn't change I wouldn't really care too much, it's just kinda weird.

Also, ****** as it may be, how do sigs work - sometimes they come up and sometimes they don't!

Your sig shows up only if your post is sufficiently large.

No Norfair? WTF is this? I'm the only one who CPs it anyway! Way to **** me over just when I was about to go all Ganon in a serious tournament.

I've taken the initiative and advertised every place that Will failed to advertise (so everywhere) on such illustrious threads as the MI thread and the GOD KAI (zomg) thread, as well as some ****ty threads such as Ohio, Illinios, Oklahoma, and Kentucky. You're welcome. :psycho:

I CP it too so I'm equally sad.

But, people like the list so I'm sticking to it.

I'd rather have attendance and fair rules/stages then personal preference, AR 2 really hurt my self esteem at how low the attendance was, so I want this **** to bring it back up.

Now I just have to find a ride home. :(

Good job on spreading the word, Nicole!



Regarding the # of starting stages vs counter picks...

There isn't any issue with there being the same amount of Starters as there are Counters. A 5 or 7 stage starting list is generally considered to be roughly equal in terms of fairness.

Personally I prefer 5 stages, but 7 has its advantages, particularly against Ice Climber mains, who benefit more than any other character from the 5 stage list.

At any rate, there's nothing wrong with the current stage list. I would be fine with 5 or 7 starters either way. Generally I use "5 and 9" instead of "7 and 7" personally, but like I said it doesn't really matter much either way.





As for sigs, like TP said, your post has to be enough lines for the sig to come up. Also make sure that you have "show your signature" checked on your post, which you can check by clicking "edit" and then "go advanced" and looking for the checkbox at the bottom.



...maybe. housing?
OMFG alex! we here in st louis DEFINITELY owe you good housing! also, I think Legan might owe you a shirt, lmfao! how many people would you be bringing?

Oh, Milk, Rauleen originally asked me if I would help you guys run this. Do you still want help with brackets and pools and stuff?

Ha, Alex just wants his shirt back from Legan.

Cookie, it really depends if Kyle is able to make it or not, cause neither Rauleen or I have a Lappy, let alone one with TO on it.

So if you can, yes, please be prepared to help, just in-case you do.

We can has sexy DeDeDe times? ^_^


How come Rainbow Cruise and Pokemon Stadium 2 aren't CPs
Rainbow Cruise is a CP, you must have just misread it. As for PS2, it's pretty standard for us to leave that out.

Also omfg joker you have to come to MO you big sexy beast you!





Milk, I just noticed. You should change the Bowser-cide rule to just be exactly what the SBR one states:

"If a game ends with Bowser doing his suicide klaw and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for Bowser."

Or just make it

"Suicides kills that end in sudden death go to the initiator of the suicide kill." and then you can cover any issues with ganon / kirby / dedede / wario too.
