Me and Gichan are hosting the first of what we hope to turn into a series of regional events hosted in Canada. No tournament on this side of the border will have the amount of preparation/effort/and most of all HYPE that this tournament is going to bring.
Now some may ask
Mr.ToJoe why are you doing all this and how is it going to get done?
The reason im creating the RoS series is to establish Canada as not only a legitimate Smash region but also show players across the border a scene that has relatively gone unnoticed through most of Brawls lifespan. Additionally,as both players and hosts we want to provide a tournament for the COMMUNITY which aims at nothing more than to serve Brawl fans in and outside of our region.
Mr.ToJoe is MK legal?
Dun Dun Dun. Yes Metaknight WILL be legal. Metaknight does not overcentralize our region, and im really eager to see our best MKs go up against the MK killers of the U.S. Plus didnt you read the tourneys name?
Mr.ToJoe why are you making the tourney thread 3months before the tournament?
If you cant already tell, i want this tourney to be HYPE. Im going to be working as best I can to promote this and make it my goal to be Canadas biggest tourney of 2012. LETS GO!
*********IMPORTANT READ FOR US ENTRANTS**********: To get into Canada you need a passport, these take anywhere between 1-2weeks to get so this gives you plenty of time to come prepared and be ready for February!

*note: you have to let GI know when you go for a lunch/dinner break. He will sign you out and give you between 30-45mins pending tourney process,failure to do so will result in 1 set loss every 10minutes you are late if match is called)
If you are 10minutes late once your match is announced, you lose the set* instead of giving a lunch break we believe its better to let players go when they want because players either ignore/arent able to make it for their lunch break)

USA vs Canada Crews (5v5 or 7v7 pending on entrants)
We will be using the Apex 2012 ruleset with a minor change to the stagelist.
8 Minute Time Limit
Items set to “Off” and “None”
Pause set to “Off”
Meta Knight’s infinite dimensional cape tactic is banned.
All infinites and chain grabs are legal.
There is a 50 Ledge Grab Limit for all characters, except Meta Knight which is 35. If a game goes to time and one player goes over the Ledge Grab Limit for their character, they will automatically lose the game. If both players exceed their Ledge Grab Limit, then this rule is ignored.
The act of stalling is banned: stalling is intentionally making the game unplayable: Such as becoming invisible, continuing infinites, chain grabs, or uninterruptible moves past 300%, and reaching a position that your opponent can never reach you.
Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.
If the Ledge Grab Limit does not declare one player the winner, the winner will be declared by what the game says in all situations, except for when players are presented with sudden death:
In the event of a match going to time, the winner will be determined by who has less percent (stock difference still takes priority but will be shown in the results screen).
If the match ends with both players dying at the same time (either coincidentally or via suicide move) or if time ran out with both players at equal percent, a one stock three minute rematch will be played on the same stage. For a tie-breaker match, a Ledge Grab Limit of 18 is used for all characters, except Meta Knight with 13. The only other exception to this is the game ending from a Bowser or Ganon Suicide tactic, where the initiator of the move wins.
Team Attack set to “On”
Life stealing is allowed.
In the event of a game reaching the time limit, if a single player on a team exceeds their Ledge Grab Limit, that team loses. If one or more players on both teams exceed their Ledge Grab Limit, then the Ledge Grab Limit rule is ignored.
In the event of a game going to time and the Ledge Grab Limit can no
t determine a winner and both teams have an equal amount of combined stocks, then whichever team has a lower combined percent is declared the winner.
If a player is using the character Pokemon Trainer, Lucario, or Sonic, either team may request that team colors be changed to make it easier to tell the difference between team players.
Player Priority is determined if it can not be agreed on. (See below for details)
Each Team selects one controller port to use for each Player.
Each Team selects one character for each Player. A double blind pick may be called by any player.
The first game is played on a Stage selected from the Starter Stage List either by mutual consent or through the Stage Striking Method. The order of stage striking will be 2-3-1 (Team 1 strikes two stages, followed by Team 2 striking three stages, with Team 1 then striking one of the two remaining stages).
The first match is played.
The team that lost the previous match may opt to re-pick controller ports (with themselves picking first).
The Team that won the previous match may announce one “Stage Ban” if they have not already done so in this set.
The Team that lost the previous match announces the stage for the next match from either the Starter or the Counterpick Stage List. Any Stage named as a “Stage Ban” by the either Team may not be selected. No Stage may be used by a Team that has already won on that Stage in this set.
The Team that won the previous match chooses one character for each Player.
The Team that lost the previous match chooses one character for each Player.
The next match is played.
Repeat steps 6-11 for all proceeding matches.
Determining Player Priority
If there is a dispute in controller port selection or initiating Stage Strike use the following method:
Teams will use a random method such as Rock-Paper-Scissors, Coin Flip, or Game and Watch Judgment, where the winner selects either first choice in port selection or first choice in stage striking. Whichever team does not receive first choice in port selection will be compensated with first choice in stage striking.
Note: In Doubles, port selection is ordered 1-2-2-1 fashion (with Team-1 having first choice in controller slot select, Team-2 having both second and third choice, and the final slot going to Team-1).
Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
Pokemon Stadium 1
In the event pause is left on accidentally and is pressed, immediately call over the TO. Based upon their judgment, the situation will be resolved. If your situation is neutral [players are not in combat], the match will be resumed as if the pause had not occurred. If your situation is advantageous to one individual and the player in the disadvantageous situation paused, the disadvantaged player will be either placed in a grab or onto the ledge of the stage. If a player in a death situation [Chain grabs, Grab releases, Jab-locks to a kill move, etc] paused while in a death situation, the current stock is forfeited immediately. If you unpause before the TO reaches the station, the player that unpaused losses a stock.
Players who use the Wii Remote must take the batteries out of the Wii Remote when not playing. If the Wii Remote is still synced up to a Wii with the batteries in, you could unintentionally disrupt a match. If problems persist, a DQ may happen.
You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility (including battery issues with a Wii Remote), so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you’re using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. Both parties need to agree if a match is to be paused or restarted because of these problems.
The tournament organizer has the right to save/record any tournament match if possible and has the right to upload said match.
Any hacks, including (but not limited to) textures, music, and model changes are not allowed.

USA vs Canada crew battleWhaddup guys!
I've been offered a spot on a Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/NinBuzz (<- almost 90,000 subscribers) To make videos about specific characters in Brawl. (About their skills, strategies, techs, etc.) Now to bring mad hype to the videos and to the brawl community I'll bring my camera to this tourney and will do some interviews of all the players who are ranked for a character!
Something we've all wanted to see but has never actually happened in a Canadian tournament is the USA vs Canada crew battle. With Vinnie as USA's captain and Ally for team Canada this is definitely going to be the most hype part of the tourney.
wait til the hype video is released
This is just a small taste of what the tournament is going to offer. There will be pot bonuses,player sponsorships,livestream partnerships and MUCH MORE on the way.
More announcements and definitely more updates to the thread to come!
