Hey everyone,

If you happen to know anywhere in Salem that might be interested in hosting the SSF Tournaments in the future, please let me know!

Unfortunately, the more permanent venue we had been working on ended up not working out, so we're back to searching for now.

(In the meantime, expect to keep seeing us at Wild Things when they have space available!)

What we need:
- A space (duh), with room for at least 35 players and a decent number of setups (if you've been to Wild Things, the upper rooms are each about the minimum size that we can use at the moment)
- Electricity (preferably a lot of outlets, but we've made do with 1 before - who remembers the old GameStar days?)
- Internet (we need basic-tier internet to run brackets, but good internet that lets us stream would be awesome!)
- It MUST be youth-friendly (can't be 18+ or 21+ only)
- Available for essentially the full day on Saturday (11am-8/9pm), and be available most Saturdays

If you have any leads, please message me here or email us at SalemSmashfests@gmail.com !


==========



Also, just to clarify there will NOT be an SSF Event this Weekend!

This is unrelated to the venue post though, and instead because you should all go to Rose City Unification 3 this weekend!


"Saturday, 3/9 Rose City Unification 3 (RCU) The month begins with Epic Gaming and PDX FGC hosting the 3rd RCU.

This event will feature Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2, Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Soul Calibur VI, Tekken 7, Super Smash Brother Ultimate (Singles and Doubles) as well as Dead or Alive 6 for the first time!

Please be sure to Pre-Register!!
Pre-registering online saves you money!

Pre-registering helps with planning out how many setups are needed and helps with estimating how each event will be run.

Pre registering online will be $10 dollars, while on-site registration will be $15 Also, SETUPS are needed!

Bringing a full setup (PS4 + Monitor + Game W/DLC) or (Switch + Monitor + Game W/DLC + Gamecube Controller Adapter) will reduce your venue fee by $5 dollars, and if you pre-registered and paid online, you will be given $5 dollars back.

There is a limit to the amount of complete setups that will be accepted.
Please make sure the monitor is Tournament standard.

For anyone bringing a monitor or wanting to commentate one of the games fill out this form:

Epic Gaming Address: 17185 SE McLoughlin Blvd, Milwaukie, OR 97267"

Hey everyone, we're back this weekend!

We'll be at Wild Things Games this Saturday, and pre-reg is here: https://goo.gl/forms/6DieW0O5npyh9ZQ13

Please note however that we will NOT be running any Project: M brackets this weekend!
Please head over to Portland Priority 2 instead if you would like to play P:M this weekend!
(Also, check out their trailer here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7rskKR2XNI )

We'll see you there!

Hey everyone,

It's been a long time coming, but we have a new venue now!

For the forseeable future, we will be at the

Premiere Academy of Performing Arts
241 State St. NE
Salem, OR 97301

We're going to be in the downstairs studio there, and we'll be running a temporary schedule for the next few weeks as well!


===== Salem Smashfests Tournament Schedule =====
11:30am | Doors Open, Setup & Friendlies
1:00pm | UNI[ST]
1:30pm | Ultimate Singles
2:00pm | Project: M ***
3:00pm | BlazBlue Cross-Tag Battle
4:00pm | Tekken 7
4:00pm | Melee ***
6:00pm | Guilty Gear Xrd -Rev2-
8:30pm | Venue Closes

You may notice a few things about this schedule, so I'll go over those now

- Melee & Project M: We don't currently have anywhere to store TVs, Tables, Chairs, or things like that at the new venue, and while we've found spaces for Tables/Chairs for now we don't have a good place to store CRTs.

Unfortunately, Melee and Project: M have also been averaging small numbers recently, so for the immediate future we'll be swapping to the policy of "If community members can show up consistently AND bring CRTs, we'll run the game(s). If not, then we won't run Melee/P:M that week". Depending on how this goes over the next few weeks/months, we'll see what the future holds for Melee/P:M at SSF

- Ultimate Doubles: Due to particularly low turnout for Ultimate Doubles, we'll be dropping this (at least for the moment). If you're particularly interested in entering Doubles PLEASE (1) let me know and (2) show up for it!

We've been considering swapping to running a Squad Strike bracket as an Ultimate side-event instead; please let us know your thoughts on that!

Also, speaking of tables and chairs, WE NEED TABLES AND CHAIRS!
We'll be providing our own going forwards (as the dance hall only has a few), so if you can bring (or donate) Tables or Chairs (folding or otherwise), PLEASE let us know!


Pre-registration for this weekend can be found here: https://forms.gle/7BvBdTvobrjPe5JU8


Thanks, and (unless you're going to SmashNest instead) we'll see you there!

VODs from this weekend are up!
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqQIRwTV55Ciuw9crNmis-LvTkwslsKVF

Also, Rose City Unifications 4 is this weekend up in Portland!

Most people will be going to that (for the games of ours that they have, at least: Ultimate, UNIST, Guilty Gear, and Tekken 7), however if there are people who won't be going to that who would be interested in coming to a SSF here in town (that would probably be a lot more practice-and-side-bracket-focused than normal due to extra time), please let me know!

Like always we need tournament quality set-ups and rock solid commentary.

Hey everyone, just a few announcements/confirmations here:

- Smash Bros Ultimate will be played on Patch 3.0.0 at this Saturday's event (barring a 3.0.1 patch or something, of course)

- Joker will be legal at the tournament this Saturday, so MAKE SURE YOU HAVE JOKER if you're bringing a setup!

- If you are interested in Ultimate doubles in the future, please post here! We've been planning on swapping to Squad Strike instead as our side event, but if you would prefer doubles now is your chance to let us know!

Hey there Smash Ultimate players, starting this weekend we'll be changing our ruleset!

Changes:
- Yoshi's Island (Brawl) will no longer be a legal stage
- Yoshi's Story, Kalos Pokemon League, and Town & City are now Counterpick stages

This will bring our stagelist in line with the current "Oregon Standard", and we'll be aiming to adjust our ruleset to keep in line with that in the future


See you Saturday (and remember, we're at Wild Things Games again this weekend)!

Hey everyone, we're here announcing the return of the Salem Showdowns, and the Salem Smashfests PR!

Starting NEXT Saturday, July 27th, we'll be running larger, monthly events focused on Smash Bros Ultimate!
(Other games will be added down the road too, as long as it looks like we'll have time & interest)


===== Salem Showdowns
Schedule & Prices:
11:00am | Doors Open ($3 venue fee)
12:00pm | Smash Bros. Ultimate: Doubles! ($2/player)
1:00pm | UNI[ST] Singles ($1)
1:30pm | Smash Bros. Ultimate: Singles! ($5/player)
2:30pm | BBTag Singles ($1)
5:00pm | GGXrd Rev2 Singles ($1)
8:30pm | Doors Close (group dinner at Denny's for anyone who wants to join!)


- July 27th: The Return!
We'll be hosting a trial run of the Salem Showdowns next week to get back into the swing of things. We'll be running Ultimate Singles and Doubles, and we'll be having our usual FGC brackets (at their usual times and sizes) as well!

Pre-Registration for the July Showdown is live here: https://forms.gle/pMXurTtGNRrC64K76


- August 24th: SSF PR Finale!
We'll be hosting another event next month as well, and it'll be the final event for this cycle of the SSF PR!


===== Salem Smashfests PR
The SSF PR is coming back!

The rules are going to be pretty similar to what they were before:
- All entrances in (1v1, non-side-event) SSF Brackets will count towards your SSF Ranking
- To be eligible for the PR, you have to have entered at least 3 of the last 8 weeks of SSF brackets for your game
- PR Size will be determined based on the game (we're still locking it down, but we're planning on starting with 8 spots for Smash Ultimate and 3 spots each for our FGC games)

(Also, due to a project we've been working on lately expect the PR to go up much sooner than normal after the event!)



Thanks, and we'll see you there!

Hey everyone, a couple of announcements!



First up, despite RCU happening there WILL be a Salem Smashfests event this weekend!

Pre-registration can be found here, so let us know if you're planning on showing up!
https://forms.gle/fnceM5nSFrQpvQK2A



Second, Rose City Unification is this weekend!
If you're in Portland (or able to make the trip), we recommend you head to that instead of SSF! It's a monthly after all, and lots of players will be heading up there!

If you're not able to make it though, head to SSF instead! We'll still be running brackets but since it should be a bit smaller (and now that we have more reliable tables & stuff) we should have PLENTY of extra time to practice with people and learn new games!



Third, the Salem Showdown for this month has MOVED DATES!
Unfortunately there was a scheduling conflict with the venue for the original weekend, so instead the August Salem Showdown (and the return of the SSF PR) will be on August 17th - next weekend!

The Showdown will be similar to last month's (same schedule, $5 Ultimate singles, usual FGC brackets, etc) however Ultimate Doubles will also be $5 entry!

(Pre-registration will go up for that after the brackets this weekend)



Thanks, and we'll see you soon!

Have you ever wanted to play Guilty Gear?
Do you already play, but want to get better?
Have you seen that CRAZY HYPE new Guilty Gear 2020 trailer and want to pick up the series?

Well now's a great time!

Here at SSF, we're running a Guilty Gear Daredevils League!
Sign up and we'll teach you how to play Guilty Gear, and train up for the Finals in November!

League Info

Hey Ultimate players, don't forget that Buff The Bluff 2 is THIS SATURDAY!

It's right up in Portland, so if you're looking for some Smash Bros Ultimate action please head up there!

https://smash.gg/buffthebluff2


Also, it looks like we will be having some sort of event this weekend here in Salem; we'll be hosting the Guilty Gear Daredevil League finals for sure, but what we run other than that depends on (time and) who's interested in showing up for what

So...
If you can't make it to Buff the Bluff (please head up there if you can make it, I'm sure it'll be great!) but still want to come to an Ultimate tournament, please let us know here! If there's enough people I'll see about running it, but if not we'll probably end up having some sort of smaller, FGC-focused event instead

Thanks!

Hey everyone, good news!

Thanks to some help from Corban University's Smash Bros Club, we finally have a new venue!


The new location will be:
Corban University's "Emmitte Center" (Schimmel Hall, Room 212)
5000 Deer Park Dr SE
Salem, OR 97317

Parking is available in the A, B, and U lots!



Due to the change in location, we have some price updates as well - the Venue Fee and the Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Singles bracket are now $5 each, up from $3. This venue is a bit more expensive, but hopefully going up to $5 won't break the bank for anyone!



Oh right, and since we have a venue now... we may as well run a tournament, right?



Pre-Registration for this weekend, December 7th, is now live!
Please sign up here, it makes things a LOT easier on us TO's on the event day: https://forms.gle/KUCtbBMVUS3Yv1gT9


Please remember to bring your controllers, and your Switches, Switch Gamecube Adapters, (Lagless) Monitors, Playstation 4s, and any other setups you may have - the more we have, the more games can be played!


Also, especially since it's been so long, feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the event!


In the meantime, please remember to head over to Wild Things Games Tuesday starting at ~6:30 for Smash & FGC casuals!

Hey everyone, here are the details on how to get into the venue today!

First up, here is a map of the venue (Corban College). We are in Building 25 here (the one with the black diamond on it)
70594416_2663927086999580_6593795154740510720_n.jpg


Once you walk into the building, turn right and go up the stairs - we're in the room directly at the top of the stairs there!

Parking is available in the lots A, B, D, and U - some guest parking may be available in lot E, but I'm unsure as to the rules for lots E or F.




See you there!
