A guide to getting to La Trobe University:
http://www.latrobe.edu.au/handbook/2007/general/public-transport-and-parking.htm


START TIMES


The room is open from 10am - 10pm.
Teams: 10am - 1pm
Singles Qualifying Swiss: 1pm - 4pm
Singles Finals Double Elimination: 4pm - 6pm
Crews: 6pm

***FRIENDLIES ARE NOT ALLOWED UNLESS ALLOWED BY TOURNAMENT DIRECTORS.***
1st - offense = warning
2nd - offense = disqualification from all tournaments (no refunds)


There will be plenty of time set aside for friendlies (during singles finals and crews), so don't worry too much about not being able to play enough. With the reintroduction of the Swiss system you're guaranteed to get in a lot of matches. These rules have been put in place to help the tournament run on time.


COSTS

Yet to be confirmed, but likely to be:
Singles - $10 per person
Teams - $10 per person
Crew battle events - Free if you entered singles and doubles (open to debate)


TOURNAMENT FORMATS

Teams - Standard 'MLG' Ruleset, Double Elimination
Singles - Swiss Format, Top 8 Advance to a Standard 'MLG' Ruleset, Double Elimination


THE SWISS SYSTEM - A PRIMER

- The swiss system is based on a set of rounds with an accumulative ranking ladder (much like the AFL or NRL ladders). The difference in the swiss system is that you play unique opponents that share a similar win/loss ratio to yourself.
- The first round will be completely randomized. In every round, you play your opponent in 2 games (stages are randomly elected). The result should be recorded as 2W-0L, 1W-1L, or 0W-2L.
- Singles will be played in as many successive rounds as possible within a time limit (say, 3 hours). The faster the group completes their rounds, the more rounds will be completed.
- The final 8 players will advance into a standard MLG Double Elimination Final (If people prefer Top 16 advancing into a single elimination bracket, let me know).


GENERAL STANDARD RULES

General:
- Bring your own controller, or ensure someone is bringing one for you. Tournament staff are not resposible for providing extra controllers.
- Good behaviour is expected; if tournament staff deems that you are causing trouble in this fashion, you will be kicked out of the tournament without refund.
- Controllers: see MLG rules (no modifications aside from cosmetic changes, no programmed buttons)
- No pausing during a match.
- No infinite stall/freeze glitches (ie: Peach's Wallbombing, Jigglypuff's rising pound, Ice Climber freeze glitch, etc). If you use these in a match, you forfeit that match. If one of these tactics is used on you for the purpose of stalling the match, pause the game and call for tournament staff.
- Once a match has been announced, it must be started within 5 minutes. If one or more of the participants does not show up within the 5 minutes, they forfeit the match. This applies to both singles and doubles.
- Prizes: Singles and Doubles: 65/25/10 split for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
- No friendlies will be allowed during any part of the tournament, unless staff relax the rules. Players caught playing friendlies during busy tournament sessions will be warned. It would be more appropriate to friendly people outside the tournament date.
- Money Matches are allowed to take place where possible.
- Spectators are welcome.

Match rules:
- All matches are 4 stock, 8 minute time limit
- Doubles-specific: Team attack ON, life stealing allowed
- Dave's Modified Stupid Rule: No stage may be used twice in a single set if the player choosing already won on that stage
- Stage Knock-out: Each player (or team, in teams) may choose to eliminate one of the legal stages (neutral OR counterpick) to be chosen at the beginning of the set.
- Advanced Slob Picks: Loser may choose the next stage or elect to go random, then winner may choose to change characters, then loser may change characters
- Double blind pick may be called at any time (the only time this is useful is, before players choose their first initial character, before the first game starts).
- Neutral stages: Fountain of Dreams (BANNED in teams), Dream Land 64, Battlefield, Yoshi's Story, Final Destination, Pokemon Stadium
- Counterpick stages: Any neutral stage, plus Rainbow Cruise, Green Greens, Corneria, Brinstar, Mute City, Poke Floats, Donkey Kong 64
- Any other stage is BANNED in both singles and doubles
- WOBBLING IS BANNED


CREW BATTLE RULES

It will be a round robin tournament, with a minimum of 5 players per team. For the VIC/QLD/NSW teams, they all must equally match the maximum number of participants possible. Stage selection is completely random from the neutral 6, and each player is entitled to 1 stage cancel per match.

Hurray, the next big Australian tournament. I'm excited. I'll help in its organisation in any way possible. I predict multiple deaths of this thread over the next few months before everyone actually starts getting serious about it.

BTW, <3 CAO for this. Even when you're probably mega busy with OC2 and all that other stuff, you still make a base plan for a tourney for us. =]

1. Parents

2. School

3. Money

Sebastian is banned from this tournament. This is a way of helping him move on from the Smash Community he doesn't like to be a part of. I only want to deal with people who can make the tournament enjoyable for all who attend.


SA isnt that crap.... lol. I'm pretty confident they'd beat NSW :chuckle:

Well, I am not gonna conform and make predications.
There is still plenty of time till this tournament. It would be great if we could get at least 4 players from each state, mega crewzzz battlez.

I'm at least aiming for a top 5 finish in singles. And thats all I am sayin. ;)

Both SEATs were great and I definitely wanna come, but the problem is that I'm moving to New Zealand in late January. So I may or may not come, depending on the date... =/ I hope you're able to come Oli, Smash matches are better IRL than online. =P

Well I will most definetly try to get to this one. My first out of tassie tournament. Unless of course I go to one before this. :p

The matter for me is getting it working between work, and tafe (Which im starting next year :p)

But money will be no problem for me. I might even take my car over so if any tassie people would like to come with me, I will have 4 seats available. (3 if i get my new car)

Funds are going to be tight for this, im importing the wii from the u.s. for xmas so my cash might be strapped. Depends if i go through with my plan to buy all the release titles, and seeing as how zelda/metroid/mario/smash are on the list its very likely.

I haven't checked up on anything for a while, so pls feel free to correct me.
But haven't they said they arn't going to say Mario is a release title because they may not make the date.
Also isn't smash 2007 sometime? no date.

But by the time the tournament comes they may be out. Who knows.
