Rules
  1. Bring Your Own Controller. There will not be any for you to borrow.
  2. You are responsible for yourself and your own things. Theft will be watched for but we will not be held responsible for things gone missing. Be smart.
  3. Be mindful of your matches. TOs can and will award a loss to anyone more than 5 minutes late to a tournament match.
  4. TOs reserve the right to warn, DQ or eject anyone they find acting disrespectful, aggressive or behaving in some unsavory manner.
  5. Know the rules to whatever events you enter.
  6. Do not loiter outside of the hall. You're either in playing games or out getting food etc. This is a school campus with more going on than just smash bros and you will need to be respectful of that.
  7. TOs reserve the right to record your likeness, be it gameplay footage or photographs.
  8. The TO's word is law.

Are rules still subject to change? Why is wobbling banned? If the next version of PM is out before this and game length is shown to be shorter because of recovery changes and other things can the rules be changed to 4 stock?

Rules are subject to change, yes.
Wobbling is banned because as a TO I find it degenerate in a way that's similarly if not more dramatic than many stages that we don't even question banning.

You've got a month and a half, dude.
But we'll figure something out for you if that happens.

We'll see what happens. If Steven's Point comes down in force again like we did for Construct, I'll most likely be there.

Going to want a LOT of friendlies. LOTS.

I would like to go to this. I live in Waukegan, IL, so if you are close by maybe we can team up for Melee Doubles.I can probably drive you if you're down to team up with me.
