Bring your controller out every other Friday for Orbitar, Seattle's preeminent Smash 4 bi-weekly, at GameWorks! In addition to the bracket, we’ll have setups dedicated to friendlies. Smashers of all skill levels are welcome!

If you can’t make it out, you should be able to catch some of the action at twitch.tv/GameWorksSeattle, and you can claim your results on Smashboards here.

NOTE: Bringing a setup (console with DLC + GameCube adapter) that we use for bracket can waive your venue fee. We can only waive fees while there are still open monitors to pair the consoles with, so make sure you get here early for the discount! If you'll be providing something, please also let us know so we can plan accordingly.

Now featuring: Orbitar 53 on 8/10!

Schedule
Registration from 5:30 PM - 6:20 PM PT, bracket from 6:30 PM - 10 PM PT

Entry
Venue: $5
Bracket: $5

NOTE: GameWorks becomes 18+ after 10 PM. All ages are allowed to enter the space for bracket and friendlies, but once 10 PM rolls around, we'll need to check IDs and escort those under 18 out of the venue. We do our best to finish brackets before this becomes an issue.

Rules

Orbitar follows the National Recommended Ruleset. Consult this document for more information on stage lists and procedures: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CFaeel_cVIImEZ7ZrIrb_fSva5H3tsN24yp2INyrVLE/edit

Sounds like this tournament is well organized, fully supported by the community, and has a great ruleset for competition. Wish I knew about it a little earlier, would love to support a Mii-friendly event!

Thanks! We're definitely off to a good start. The tournament recurs every other week, so there should be more opportunities for you coming up. :)

So the next one is Friday of next week? I've been wanting to go another tourney but haven't had the time, but luckily I'm on break soon! It would be nice if it was a bit earlier in the day since I'm across the lake, but I might be able to make it.

This seems like a lot of fun! I've never been to a smash tourney before! Unfortunately I have something going on next weekend and the next weekend is my birthday, but I definitely will be sure to check it out sometime when I have the chance!

PS: I don't play Ness

Registration is at the door and capped at 64, and yep--the next Orbitar is one week from now on Friday, 12/18. Hope to see you guys out there! Based on the feedback we've gotten so far, everyone's really enjoying the series. :)

While I've been playing Smash all my life, I'm very new to the competitive scene and I'm eager to learn more from veteran players!

It's kind of sad this is the closest tourney to me considering its 50 min away. I live in Everett and there's like no tourneys near me. :c

This seems like a great tourney and I hope you guys get a great turnout, but I can't go.

i will definitely be attending this, made an account just to post here- are any controllers allowed?

from Auburn, never been to a tournament before but none of my friends really play smash so I'm hoping to find cool people to play with who enjoy the game as much as I do.

Cyrrona Cyrrona this event sounds awesome! Planning to show up this Friday. Do you know where most people park for this event? I don't live in Seattle so I'm not too familiar with the area, not to mention Capital Hill parking can be a nightmare.

Paid street parking is available around the venue itself, but you'll only need to pay for about an hour--it becomes free after 8pm. If you're looking for a more defined lot, the Washington State Convention Center is just a quick walk away. Looking forward to seeing you there!

heyo, I'm really interested in attending this local one day, but I have a few questions I would like to ask:

1) Is there any way the results/stats of each local can be published?
2) What are the payout percentages for the winner and runner-ups?
3) Are matches able to be uploaded onto YouTube? (other than watching the Twitch VOD)
4) Could one play on the Wii U Gamepad for bracket matches?
5) Is there an age limit?

I had a lot of fun yesterday! I lost a couple of heartbreakers, but it was an exciting time and I met a lot of really cool people! If anyone ever wants to play some casuals or just say hi, please don't hesitate to drop me a note. =)

It's a bit of a drive for me to get up to Seattle, but I look forward to the next time I'm able to be there!

1) We post the results on facebook after each event, but we'll look into getting those scores over here as well in the future.
2) We pay out to 4th--it's usually along the lines of 50%/30%/15%/5%.
3) They aren't at the moment, but we're aiming to work up to this eventually.
4) Yep.
5) Nope.

Hope to see you out at one sometime!

Quick update: We're moving to second and fourth Fridays to better accommodate other tournaments in the Seattle metro area. We're also rolling back the bracket start time to 7:00 PM and lowering our registration cap, though the latter is subject to change depending on the number of setups the community can provide. We're looking forward to implementing these tweaks at our next event (still on 1/22)--make sure you're there in time to register!

Quick update: If anyone plans to bring a setup, please let us know what we can expect by adding it to this Google doc. We'll be using this to coordinate setups moving forward. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing new faces out here!

EDIT: Registration cap has been loosened to 64 thanks to the community's setup contributions. Thanks, everyone! If we get 2 more, we'll be able to remove the cap entirely.

Considering the fact that Corrin and Bayonetta have been confirmed for release on Feb 3rd, are you going to allow them on the 12th or are you going to wait until one of the later events to allow them?

Is it okay if I don't have these rules completely memorized by the day of the tournament? I'm talking about the Rock Paper Scissors thing. This will be my first ever tournament and I might not know some of the rules by heart.

Im sure that some of the more experienced players would be more than happy to explain when the time comes.

We plan to allow them on the 12th. :)

And yes, ArNoh ArNoh , feel free to ask if you're unsure of anything. The community is pretty friendly--they'll help you out!
