The Queensland Smash Thread
The aim of this thread is to provide a central source of information regarding smash meetups in Queensland (Though Northern Queensland does have a thread of its own). I highly advise checking in on this thread every other day (I check it every day, several times a day) so you can keep up to date with the latest happenings locally.
Tournament organising is a responsibility split between several people in the QLD smash community and spread over several threads:
For tournaments to look forward to in the near future I suggest checking the following threads:
>>> Queensland Bi-Monthlies <<<
These tournaments are being hosted currently by 'Hotdog' at the Fortitude Valley PCYC. This up to date thread contains information on dates, times and other essential info on Melee and Brawl tournaments which happen every month.
>>> LanSmash Tournaments <<<
LanSmash is an important backer of competitive smash, allowing us room to run tournaments at their LAN gaming events which happen throughout the year.
National Tournament Coming up!
>>> SQUAT V <<<
This is the main discussion thread for a National level tournament being held on the Gold Coast. It is imperative that you sign up for it now to indicate attendance!
This year we're going to do Player Rankings.
Basically, people will be assigned points in tournaments based on their performance, the amount of people who entered and the entry fee involved.
Ranks for Melee and Brawl will exist, as well as a combined rank.
This system is in place to encourage player involvement and competitiveness, in lieu of rediculous entry fees to justify a pot.
Proposed 2009 Calendar
2009 Brawl Calendar:
2009 Melee Calendar:
The second day of each LanSmash Event will be a Melee Tournament day. Those being SummerSmash, AutumnLAN, WinterLAN and SantaSmash.
Okay, Sloth's thread has been a great way to keep people in the loop about meets and such, but now after QBB, we need to discuss the new direction of the Queensland smash community. I intend to keep this thread very much updated with information pertaining to everything in regards to QLD smash.
As I understand it, there are a number of players dotted everywhere, and if we don't scoop them up, and really keep on with the competitive scene, things will start to become lack lustre and people will quickly forget that there's a competitive scene at all.
Thus, I have begun this thread as a mega resource and center of discussion for QLD smash.
In the OP, will be including info regarding:
- Upcoming Meets/Smashfests
- Upcoming Major Tournaments
- Crew Information
Plus other important information.
For now, it's important to let everybody know that you want to play smash, tell us how many players you can host, and when/where.
