As of late, our Brawl scene has been disintegrating while simultaneously, our Melee scene has been blowing up. SO, we figured we would be able to host a regional tournament with legit attendance. Out with the new and in with the old =D So get ready to smash with the top players in the northwest and some of the most chill people you will ever meet!

NORTHWEST MANIFEST
-March 24th/25th, 2012-

Stream Link:

http://www.twitch.tv/meleepacwest



Northwest Manifest is a part of the IMPULSE Circuit. This means that the 2 people from this tournament (PP and California excluded) that place the highest in singles at Northwest manifest will be awarded venue fee, singles, and doubles to help them show up to IMPULSE.

If two or more people from the eligible states are tied in placing, the tie breaker is solved by who placed higher in doubles. If this is still a tie, or you teamed with that person, then a 1v1, best 2 out of 3 set will happen between those renaming players, and the winner of that gets the prize.

The winners will be registered automatically. If you wish to give your prize to someone else, then you can simply register for them. Hence we register you, while you pay for your friend when you register them, thus indirectly awarding the prize to whomever you may choose to give it too. Therefore if you can not go to IMPULSE, there is a means of transferring the prize. Failure to attend IMPULSE without transferring the prize, results in the prize going to the next person from the eligible states that placed the highest in singles. Same rules apply for the tie breaker as well.



-Tournament Info-

VENUE:

3333 184th St SW
Lynnwood, WA 98037

-IMPORTANT-

The venue is where we host our monthly tournament; we ask that you treat it with the utmost respect. Which means clean up after yourself and please don't steal anything.

There will be a $5 venue fee for each day of the tournament. So $10 total.


Housing/Traveling:


I ask that no one try to arrive on Thursday before the tournament and leave no later than Monday night. Otherwise things could become very inconvenient and unreliable. If you're coming in Thursday let us know in the thread

If you are coming from outside of Washington, send me a private message and I will try to set up housing for you. People from Washington/Oregon that need housing, I can't make any promises. People from out of region have priority.


Airport:

The airport you'll have to fly into is Seatac Airport. I'm not sue if there even are any other options lol. This one is conveniently located five minutes from the venue. =)


Tournament Rules:

-Singles will include one round of pools following this format:

16 total pools, 5-6 players in each pool, top 3 advance into a 48 man bracket. Each first player who advances into the bracket with 1st seed will be given a bye first round of the bracket.

In the result of a tie:

Individual game records are not tracked. The tiebreak is based on which person beat a higher ranked person in the pool. Not higher seeded, but higher ranked based on the results of the pool. If there is a tie that this doesn't resolve (this will almost certainly be a 3-way tie but it's possible for it to be 2-way also), the tied players play a round robin of 1 game rematches (using stage striking) until the tie is broken.

-Doubles will be a bracket. The size depends on the number of teams that enter. Likely a 32 team bracket.


Schedule:

Day 1:

Registration Time: 11:00am
Doubles: 12:00pm
Singles: Near the end of or after doubles and for the rest of the day.

Day 2:

Singles bracket
Friendlies =)

Entry/Payouts:

Venue Fee: $5 for each day of the tournament. So $10 total.

Singles: $15 per person

1st: 50%
2nd: 25%
3rd: 15%
4th: 10%

Doubles: $10 per team

1st: 60%
2nd: 30%
3rd: 10%

Side Tournament/Crew Battle: ??

In the likely event that one of these happens, we'll let you know then.

This tournament is gonna be LEGIT. WA Melee now pulls like ~40 people for locals, and with JUST PNW alone (Oregon, WC Canada) we could easily hit ~60 people. Just think how amazing this could be with Cali coming up in force :D!!!

You guys should set up like, carpools or whatever, start booking your tickets while they're still cheap etc. etc.

And I'm definitely down to house the homies (read: everyone) :]

I saw Melee being as big in our state as Brawl when half the people said it was a dead horse.

It seems to have eclipsed it in numbers now.

Half-prophet status?

Hopefully not just Oregon, but B.C. smashers will make it.

So hype, I need to seriously hit up the hyperbolic for this.

Good stage list.

You should put a map thing in the OP showing how close Tukwila is to the nearest bigger city or something, like Vancouver (WA) or Seattle.

Haha I don't think it's a matter of who's driving (we'll take turns probably) but it's the fact that we have to be in there for 18 hours LOOOOL

man we could even run a side tourney for another game. A racer, a card game, a shooter or something that would be filllty. Cuz the tourney itself is only gonna take a day, and I'm sure people coming might plan to come for that weekend so we would have spare time to kick it.

Expanding on this: if people are in town for an extra day (like if you're leaving sunday or whatever) then let's kick it in downtown Seattle or something! We could go to Pike Place and do stupid touristy things or party on Capitol Hill or the U-District!! FIELD TRIP WITH CALI HOMIES!!!!1
