Question: As a melee TO in this region for a long time, weve seen a HUGE burst of entrants in the last couple months. So with the hype of this and the numbers that have been showing up to our events, Are you guys prepared for a 100 - 150 person turnout for melee along side all these other events?
PGH/NEOH SSBM seems still on the fence about this. The right answer may help the more concerned.
This is pretty bad. While it doesn't affect me personally, I'd hate to see multi-game entrants get shafted because the TOs simply don't know how to schedule waves appropriately.List of Events (subject to change)
Project M 1v1
Project M 2v2
PLEASE NOTE: Due to issues last year, something needs to be done about people entering into all competitions and bottle necking progress (i.e. if one player who is good at Brawl 1v1 and 2v2 as well as Melee 1v1 and 2v2 gets to the top 16 for both side of the bracket, 4 tournaments will be hinged on one player. A possible suggestion is to still allow people to register for as many as they want, but if they make it far enough they will have to select only two tourneys to continue on in.
We ended up deciding against doing anything of this nature. I'll edit the post now, didn't even know it was still there. We just are making sure when players sign up for multiple brackets that they are responsible for their matches getting played, and risk a possibly DQ if they're ridiculously late/holding up the tourney.This is pretty bad. While it doesn't affect me personally, I'd hate to see multi-game entrants get shafted because the TOs simply don't know how to schedule waves appropriately.
You have pre-registration, which means you know which events each player is entering beforehand. So give yourself a few days to schedule waves appropriately, with built-in constraints such that nobody is playing in two games at the exact same time. It's tedious, but not difficult.
Hey Juggleguy!I just get the impression that the current plan is "let players enter everything and have them figure it out" which isn't a good idea. The schedule should be dictating when players do their matches, and a very clear multiple-wave format is the most scalable option when it comes to accommodating 100 players versus 200 players versus 300 players. You could muster up all the setups in the world or all the venue space in the world, but the tournament still won't finish on time if you don't get the schedule right.
Hey Cryo,I heard that MLG actually wasn't in support of sponsoring Project M at this event. Is this true? I find it hard to believe given that it's so popular that it eclipsed Brawl at Apex.
Does this mean that it won't be streamed, though? I understand why if not, but just wanted clarification on that.Hey Cryo,
Project M is a mod, and Nintendo will not be pleased if a big company supports their hacked, stolen intellectual property.
Project M is a tournament solely being run by ESI.
With that being said, you shouldn't expect anything to differ from Project M to the other two games.
I'll be waiting for a kat posterI'll be posting a list of pictures i have set to print standards within the next few weeks in order to plan what i want to bring. Will def need feedback
expect lots of league, some smash, blazblue, and anime????
A brawl set up would be a Wii, the Brawl game disc, the power adapter, and the audio/video cord to hook it to the television. You do not need to bring controllers (each player bringsHope i can come! i live 2 hours form there lol, and what does it mean by a Brawl setup?
I would need to talk with Ori again just to confirm if they're gonna get a hotel or not. if that's the case, then I have 3-4 people available. I'll keep you on the back end for now.If a GA car came would we be able to get housing? The columbus area seems full already, but what about ppl in cincinatti?
so everyone brings there Wii and Wii cords and controllers? and is a GameCube controller accepted?A brawl set up would be a Wii, the Brawl game disc, the power adapter, and the audio/video cord to hook it to the television. You do not need to bring controllers (each player brings
Like soulpech said, the majority of players use GameCube controllers for melee, brawl, and project M. Players are responsible for bringing their own controllers and walking around with them from match to match. GameCube controllers are accepted for every tournament, but if you want to use a wiimote that is also okay.so everyone brings there Wii and Wii cords and controllers? and is a GameCube controller accepted?
Just let people know what town you're in (which I can see from your profile). When someone says they can give you a ride, just private message them your address (so the whole world doesn't see it lol).So uhm.. do I have to post my address or..?
i cant waitDoing a value mock up right now, then i will color it : 3
it honestly should be done well before Shuffle, so yeah KATARINA POSTERS THIS TIME.
oh...Hey SoulPech, I know you're booked with housing as of now, but I believe I was one of the 1st people to respond to your initial post when the thread fist opened. Would that give me any priority for housing still? Just wanna confirm so I can figure out what to do.
Whoa you're right. And apparently unplugging your opponent's controller is also legal under this ruleset. DANG.It pains me to see that the apex 2014 ruleset will now be used as the standard ruleset. Please be aware that as of now, the freeze glitch (and master hand) are legal on your melee ruleset. Neither is stalling explicitly banned except in the wobbling clause, where it is ambiguous whether stalling in general is banned or just stalling by means of wobbling. I have been saying this for a while in the apex thread. If I played ICs, I'd be learning the freeze glitch.
BlazBlue makes me suddenly interested in this post even though I only have a slight idea of what it's in reference to.I'll be posting a list of pictures i have set to print standards within the next few weeks in order to plan what i want to bring. Will def need feedback
