Calendar of games:

Wednesdays- Melee/64


Prices:

$5 Venue fee (First 6 Wii U's get a venue waiver at the end of the night)
$5 Entry for Smash for Wii U

Rules: These rules apply to all events, specific events below. If you have any questions about the rules, please ask up front rather than waiting till after a match to ask. It could be too late!


General Gameplay:

- 2 Stock
- 6 min stock timer

- Items are set to "off" and "none"
- If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage. If there is a tie, see the tiebreaker section to follow.
- Controller ports will be decided by players. If there is a conflict, we prefer using the G&W Hammer method to determine who gets to choose.
- You may switch controller ports on your counterpick only.
- BYOC (Bring your own controller). I recommend having a spare, just in case. If you don't have one, I might have a few for sale.
- Any controller malfunction mid match is on you. If you need to reset, your opponent will have to agree to a reset as doing so will require you to pause the match. (if pause is on).
- Stalling is banned. You know what this is, ask if you're unsure.
- If you freeze the game on an action initiated by your character, you lose the game. You are expected to know the boundaries of your character. (This rarely, if ever, happens.)
- Pause is recommended to be turned on for quick resets, but players can request it be turned off for the duration of their match.
- If a player pauses the match mid game (accidentally or intentionally), it is a stock loss to the player who pressed it (unless for valid interruption at T.O's discretion).
- For a match ending in sudden death, please refer to the tie break section of the rules below.

- Coaching mid-match is banned. Don't do it.
- You cannot re-select a stage you have won on as a counterpick.
- Any and all infinites (basically, where someone can control the opponent without them being able to do anything about it) must end at 300%, otherwise it becomes stalling. All infinites are entirely legal otherwise.
- ALL sets are best 2 of 3 games, INCLUDING the finals. T.O. reserves the right to make the switch to Bo5 WF/LF/GF.
- 1 stage ban on your counterpick, bans do not persist between matches.
- Customization is banned
- Wii U Gamepads/3DS/2DS are not a legal controller for use.
- Legal Mii Sets: Mii Fighter MUST use 1132, Mii Gunner MUST use 3111, Mii Swordsman MUST use 1332. These mii's must be the default mii's provided with the console, which are a default height and weight.

- Mewtwo, Roy, Ryu, Lucas, Cloud, Bayonetta and Corrin are all legal in tournament play. All consoles must contain these characters.


Set Procedure:

1. Character selection
2. Stage strike 1-2-1

3. Play Game 1
4. Winning player announces ban stage (2 bans for PM) for the set
5. Loser of previous match announces next match's stage
6. Winner of previous match chooses characters
7. Loser of previous match chooses characters
8. Play next game
9. Rinse and repeat 4-8 if set goes to a third game.


Tie Breaking:


Note: Tiebreaking is only initiated if the game started a sudden death round upon completion. Otherwise, the game declared winner is the winner of the match.

1. Winner is determined by highest stock count then lowest percent. If the % were tied or the match ended in a simultaneous death, proceed to step 2.
2. 1 stock, 3 minute match is played as a tiebreaker match. The winner of this match wins the round. If there is a tie in this match, proceed to step 3.
3. A second 1 stock, no time limit match is played. If a simultaneous death is initiated (such as swallocide) in this match, the initiator loses the match. There is no tie for this match, it is play until you win.


Conduct Rules:

- No intrusive Cosmetic hacks permitted (no altering characters to look like master chief, no reversing the ice climbers colors, etc.)
- Drugs/Alcohol are banned from Xanadu. Don't let me see any, smell any, etc. We'll send you home packing.
- Intentionally disrupting someone mid-match intentionally or accidentally is not acceptable. Please do your best to make sure you are not disrupting a match. This can result in a penalty at T.O.'s discretion.
- Don't lose anything you're bringing to the event please, we are not liable for lost/stolen etc.
- TTL Rule: You must register for the event in person, on-time. Once the registration deadline is closed, no further entries will be permitted. Do not try to call me in advance to hold the bracket.

- Collusion of any kind (asking, intentionally throwing matches yourself, "agreeing to split", etc.) is subject to instant disqualification from all events, forfeiture of all prizes, banning of said players from stream matches and a potential 1 event suspension at the T.O's discretion.

You may want to space the dashes you have at the end of your twitter links.

I'm not even from that part of America, and I love watching the top weekly matches on Twitch/Youtube!

Thank you guys for the amazing commentary and matches you all offer the rest of the world!

I'm a newbie to competitive Smash scene, but I'd like to show up on the 1st and see how that goes. I can bring a P:M setup if you guys need it.

Hi, I'm new to the competitive scene and have been wanting to attend one of these for awhile now, but have always been confused about the start/end times. This text in the post says that the venue opens at 3, the information at the top of the page says this starts at 4/5pm and ends at 11, but everywhere else says it starts at 6 pm and lasts until 2am. I'm just not sure what the best time to arrive is. Could I have some clarification?

...I'm such a derp.

Hi Folks- glad to see some interest on the boards!

@ PyroTakun PyroTakun - we can always use more setups!

@ Fudgepop01 Fudgepop01 - I've corrected the page listing for start time. Venue opens at 3pm, tournaments begin at 7:30pm. Facebook should now be up to date as well. Sorry to create such confusion.

@ TheTantalus TheTantalus what capture card do you guys use? I'm going to get a capture card, and I'm wondering what device you use.

Yo, could you all spare your thoughts on the stagelist for PM? The TO of our PM local is trying to figure that stuff out right now, and I figure you guys probably have some experience with that.

Someone new looking to drop by next week, how welcome are newcomers? Also, I can see you guys flip flop between PM and Melee, so is it only one of the two each week or do you guys do a mix of both?

Is the new Xanadu PM build (with bans/counterpicks/neutrals/music/common5) posted anywhere? It probably is but I'm too stupid to find it. I need it, thanks.

I'm sure anyone is allowed to come play. I showed up last week and got bopped first round, but it was still fun.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure if you get a double 4 stock you get banned for a month
Not necissarily. IF your matches are on stream and you get 4 stocked, you will be banned from the stream for a month not the tourney all together.

Good afternoon folks, just updated the ruleset and the schedule to reflect that this now happens every week for Project M and with the new Project M tourney pack, including a download link to it.

Do you guys have a ruleset or stage list or anything written up for Smash 4 tournaments yet?

There was, but we'll revisit for the console version. The 3DS version event did not go well due to interference in the building.

Is the monthly for Smash 3DS still happening? If so what's the schedule like for that? Also, will 3DS weeklies be on Tuesdays along with PM? Thinking about going to these at least on Tuesdays

Oh hey, so the netcoding is fine it is just the fact that something at xanadu interferes with wireless connections. Still unsure what.

So, we won't be hosting the 3DS version any longer. We'll make our big launch with the Wii U version in November.
