Greetings all. Planning for Smashing Ground's third installment has been completed. May I present to you the all new revamped Smashing Ground. =D

Location:
College of DuPage
425 Fawell Blvd.
Glen Ellyn, IL 60137-6599

(Mapquest it if you need to)

We are located in rooms SRC1740 and SRC1750:
http://www.cod.edu/Maps/SRC_12.gif

We will begin at noon, and continue to take sign-ups throughout the day. Doubles will start at 1:00 for $10 per team, and then singles will follow for $5 per person. There will then be an hour long break to do as you will, namely go for food. After that, a free low tier tournament will ensue, and the night will finish with free crew battles.

BRING SETUPS, PEOPLE. I can't stress this enough, for we'll be needing a lot of them, as we haven't had quite enough for past events.


Take note of the rules, as they are slightly different than normal.

-Tournament is double elimination.
-Double Blind Pick may be elected at the beginning of a set.

Dag nab it. I'm probably gonna be working that day.

:Looks at Calender:

Saturday before Christmas? No way I'll be able to make that. T_T I work at Gamestop, and I'm management there... so yeah. Work first guys.

Oh well. If something changes, I'll let you all know.

DK64 isn't a horrid, neutral stage. It's just that barrel. Right Mars? :-P

That barrel was even more awsome then Cpt. Awsome. Although, I don't think it did anything but stall time. Why isn't pokemon stadium on random?

And where is the smashing grounds 2 video?

I might go to this. I don't know. The last two weeks of December are usually the worst time for me to try and do anything. We'll see what happens.

I don't want this to be a big thing, but why are you having crews first? IMO, it's just less important than singles/doubles, and should thus be sitting in the back of the bus. Actually, it would just be better for me to put it last. I'm in this for the money, and Saturday night is not a good night for me to be stuck at a tournament. Maybe I'm just too materialistic, and have no love for the game, but I'd have to be there really late for doubles. I don't know, I'm rambling now. Just put crews last.

No, crews are first: OUR RULE IS ABSOLUTE.

Jk, we're not going Kochi on your as$: I don't even remember why we put crews first, but I'll talk to WL bout it. Everyone cool with Crews last?

We had crews first to fire people up. And if anything, low tier should be last, because crews are a lot more fun.

But... I suppose if people really want this to change, then it could go: Doubles, Singles, Break, Crews, Low Tier.

Oh yeah, I kinda forgot about low tier. But, I'm very pleased with the new order. I urge you guys to finalize that.

WL, I'm glad that you are open to suggestion. After all, the job of a tournament host is to meet the needs of his players to the best of his ability. Well done, sir.

Alright, alright. Schedule will be as it has been, then.

CHANGE: Doubles, Singles, Break, Low Tier, Crews.

Stick around for the afterfun, peeps. =)

Edit: Thanks, Awesome. No problem, really. So long as their reason is justified, I'm open to changing stuff.

I do ask that people stick around for the fun stuff after the main events. After all, low tier and crews are crazy fun.

Hm, just the sheer variety of formats here makes these things look like a lot of fun. :)

Christmas break for the win. I'll see if I can make it out to this one, perhaps with the Trail as well.

lol Low tier is everything below Ganondorf, so you're good. Oddly enough, my Kirby was seeming pretty hot, too, at the last one. Though, Pichu is always up for low tier. <3

u are wrong. low tier is mine. Ill start with dire jr. and if i hit a bump i can always pull out my link to own anyone :D

then again im not sure if i am going to be able to make this, seeing as it is 2 days b4 xmas. i probably will, but nothing set in stone.

i like the order, crews make a good final note because they are more laid back and fun.

2 days before Christmas, eh? I'll probably show up to this one, since I'll be in Barrington around then.

Captain Awesome, I'm in Barrington right now, but got a test on Monday. Otherwise you better believe I'd call you up for the training (:
