S@X (Smash At Xanadu) is introducing 64 weeklies on Wednesdays.

Location:
Xanadu Games
3921 Vero Rd
Arbutus, MD 21227
Xanadu is the premiere spot for Smash in MD/VA and always has the hottest livestreams. They are known for the S@X Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and they have a monthly.

Prices:
$5 Venue fee
$5 Entry fee

Schedule:
Singles will start around 8pm

Rules:
-4-Stock
-Best 2 out of 3 for all sets including WS, WF, LS, LF, GF. Because this is on a weekday, many people, including VGBC staff, have responsibilities and need to get home eventually so to control time, sets are limited to 2 out of 3. Melee/PM/Brawl/3DS are subject to this same rule. In the event there is a monthly featuring 64, these finals matches may be 3 out of 5.
-Dreamland only
-Optional 8 Minute timer. If a player wishes for the match to be limited to time, then an 8 minute timer will be used and the winner will be the player with the most stocks, or if stocks are tied, the least amount of damage.
-Be polite and respectful to the venue, staff, and other players. You can **** talk and have fun but remember you are a guest and if this is to continue everyone must behave.
-Rules are subject to change however I don't see them deviating much from the standard rules adopted for most tournaments. Some rules and changes are due to time constraints.


Setups are appreciated so if anyone has a console or crt that they could bring it would be great. Since this is a side event venue fee will not be waived for bringing a setup.

If anyone has any comments or suggestions or whatever, please let me know. The location is 10 minutes from Baltimore and 1 hour from DC. There are plenty of Melee and PM players that attend so anyone in Northern Virginia, DC, MD, or any surrounding area you can check about carpooling for the event.

I can't go this week but I would like to make it in the future. Going all the way to Baltimore in the middle of the week during the school year will be pretty difficult for me to do, but over Fall and Winter break I'll go to some of these for sure.

Really successful for the first-ever event in this series - good stuff Shears. If our turnouts get large enough we can get stream time on VGBC potentially.

Theres plenty of 64 noobs and the only way to get better is to play with better people. We also play a lot of friendlies and just have fun. We do it every week on Wednesdays and we start around 8/830 and end around 10/1030.
Cool. Do I need to bring my own controller?

I recommend you bringing your own controller, I bring extras as do a couple others, but the extras are not amazing. They are all working controllers and are pretty solid with decent sticks, but if you want to make sure you have a great controller to use, I recommend bringing your own. I'm probably going to go on amazon/ebay and just hoard a bunch soon.

@ Bark Sanchez Bark Sanchez had a heroic run last night. After beating me 2-1 in winners semis, he then defeated Nintendude 3-1 in winners finals. He then lost a hard fought game 5 to Nintendude in the first set in grand finals and then with the bracket reset squandered a 2-0 lead to Nintendude and his mario losing another nail biting game 5.

Week 4 bracket has been created. Pre-register for the tournament now at https://advancedbrackets.com/viewTournament.aspx?id=4149

Had 9 entrants last week, thats down 3 from the previous week. We need to reach 20 entrants to get stream time from VGBootCamp. I also ordered a recording setup which should arrive sometime today so starting next week we will have recorded matches whether or not we have stream time.

I will be compiling an ELO rating for the tournaments, to relatively show how everyone is ranked against each other and in turn create a Xanadu power rankings. The rankings have been added to the OP.

So my elgato recording equipment just came in today. For future weeklies we will have recordings of matches played. VGBC stream time is still dependent on getting 20 entrants but there will at least be nice youtube videos of the matches for replay until then.

Hoping to see some new names and faces this week. Wednesday is the best day of the week in Baltimore.

If you like drinking and less competitive video game tourney fare as well, check out Warfare Wednesdays at Sticky Rice.
Shears and I go each week its fun even if the rules are whack.
