There will be a 5 dollar venue fee added additionally to use the awesomely lighted, climate controlled, spacious facilities of the Cyberstorm LAN center. Oh and half the people that show up to this one wont get the flu, I think we can all agree that thats an added bonus thats worth a couple extra bucks.

We NEED More SETUPS!

IF WE DONT HAVE ENOUGH SETUPS, WE WONT GET THROUGH EVERYTHING!! AND WE DONT LIKE NOT GETTING THROUGH OUR EVENTS :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


as many wiis and gamecubes as people have the abilty to bring will be massively helpful, althoughyou definitely should take the time to personalise or in some way mark your wii to differentiate between your wiis and other wiis. This has never been a problem in this area, but it never hurts to make sure when it comes to things of this nature.

Brawl rules.
Goodies has told me that he would like to have a discussion on the rules for the games, this discussion will be taking place here, and anyone that has any input, feel free to add to the discussion.

General rules:

3 Stock

7 minute timer

Items are set to "off" and "none"

All sets with the exception of winner's finals, loser's finals, and the championship are best of 3 matches

All Sets are treated as new sets, and Continuation sets will NOT be in effect.

Winner's Losers's and Grand finals will all be best of 5 sets.

In the event of a dispute, controller ports will be selected by Rock-Paper-Scissors

No player may choose a stage they have already won on in that set unless agreed upon by both players.

In team matches, the ports will be determined in a 1221 fashion; whoever wins the RPS will choose first, then the opposing team will get their ports, and then the teammate of the RPS winner will get the last port.

If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage.

Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned.

All suicide moves, with both players on their last stock will count as a win for the person that initiated the move.

You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility, so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you're using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller functions, it must be agreed upon by both parties.

Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.

Stalling is banned. I will determine on the spot what stalling is and will warn and DQ players at my own discretion. You dont know what my judgement is like, so its in your best interest to not test me.

THE KID RULE!

COACHING is BANNED.

In general WNY tradition. Trash-talking is ENCOURAGED, but intentionally telling a player of anothers tendancies or habits mid game is coaching and will be dealt with sternly. DO NOT DO IT.

NOTE. THE KID RULE DOES NOT APPLY TO PARTNERS IN DOUBLES MATCHES.

1. Opponents choose their characters for the first match *
2. Opponents start the stage striking procedure
3. Each player may announce one stage to be banned for counterpicks of the set

Payouts will follow the payout of 55/25/10 for the first 3 places. In addition to the venue fee, Cyberstorm will be receiving a 10% cut of the entrance fees. I think this is fair and worth the money, if youve never been there, trust me, its a really nice place.

And last but not least, the airsoft rule.
Any player that loses any set will be allowed to be shot by hammerbros airsoft gun for five minutes after the conclusion of their set.

I'll come for brawl, bring a wii + maybe a TV (will have to get someone to give it a try and see if they find it acceptable, since it's LCD flat 22",). It's pretty close to PP, but I'll need to bum a ride if I bring the TV. Otherwise, I can actually walk, even if it'll be nippy.

Will have to figure out my anti-snake game before then, though, maybe practice my matchups against a few other chars too.

What PieDisliker said. Last time, my ride was gone and my dad didn't like the idea of me hanging around with older people, so that's where I was then. Maybe it can happen this time!

Why is the Melee time limit only 6 minutes?

Depends how much cash you're talking Foy.

When you say there will be no contuation sets you mean if someone faces someone in WF, and the loser makes it to GF then the winner of WF still has to win 2 sets, correct?

1. Because anybody that has to play jesse will be ended in less than 3.
seriously tho, ive played one game of melee in the last two months that took more than 5 minutes. melee games dont take that long.
2. you got him son, dont let him punk you. actin like hes good cause he spends 2 hours a week getting trashed by people that are actually good good at this game.
3. winners finals and losers finals will be best 3 out of 5. and grand finals will be best 4 out of 7. no double sets. If that doesnt seem to be optimal for you, feel free to state your case to the contrary.

$124390543 get at me. Ill come get you with my hover craft.

5$ money match? i play doc.

@Cross, I didnt want you and your crappy SD cards at my tourney anyway!!. nah but seriously that sucks that you cant come you gotta come to the next one
@sai. dude. that blows... we all miss you son you gotta come out to another tourney.

pretty much any and every ruling is up for debate. I want as much input as possible.

This tournament is for the community, so the community should determine how this tournament goes down.

so so far thats 2 people that want the days of the games switched, does anybody else have thoughts?

Nonsense, the first match between Soma Ghost and I was 6:10 long. I laser camped my *** off, on PS no less, it should be at least 7 minutes to be honest, considering some match ups*coughsamusanddoccough* are relatively slow.

I was only wondering about the sets... But why is it that there aren't multiple sets?

I only read the first two numbers since there was no commas. $12 it is, Foy.

Dudu's tag is in my GC. :3

Well, to be fair, the match limit wasn't 6 minutes, but I did win the game. And it still wouldn't have been decided by percent. ._.;; I just think it should still be at least 7, mainly because of particular matchups, stages, and playstyles.

@D1 Thats not a smash tourney is it? cus i looked and im pretty sure that weekend is like completely empty as far as smash tourneys go.

Green Greens doesnt fit the normal mold for a stage. its a long stage. it has a very low ceiling. it has a very low pit. its 3 almost even platforms with two platforms above it. navigating the stage is odd to say the least. and a lot of the time is really clunky. the blocks just make it harder to get around the stage. but none of those things are bannable, its just different.

what could possibly make it bannable are the blocks, some times hitting them keeps you dying from a fatal blow. sometimes they make an average attack into a low percent kill because you hit them and fall down in the crack between 3 main platforms. I think neither of those occurance happen often enough to warrent a ban, and not only that but the fact that it can go evenly both ways evens the situation out. because even though you died to a block stage spike at 50. the next stock you lived to 220 because falling blocks saved you from a killing blow.

the other thing is bombs, bombs can do a lot of damage, and can kill you. but I think bombs force you to play better and space your attacks more accurately so as to not explode them unintentionally. the same way pictochats hazards arent broken and merely force you to pay more attention to whats going on around you. thats why I want to allow pictochat.


@shun. id like some further input from others mainly Goodies and Jesiah.
but if you hit the 6 min mark and you were winning in percent, and you ended up winning anyway, why does it matter.
thats how i see it at least.

That isn't always goign to be the case, though. It was just something I wanted. Dunno why, just did. It doesn't matter, most of my matches lately have been under 2 minutes most of the time.... I need better people to play....

good ruleset for both games:

melee

final d only

brawl

smashvile only


its makes these games better... every other good fighter plays the same stage lol. counterpicking is ******** and detracts from player skill. you should be limited to one character the entire tournament also. its my real problem with smash. counterpicking is ****ing gay and ******** (ive been gayed and ive certainly gayed people on counterpicks)


although my ruleset is extreme, it should be a model to KEEP IT SIMPLE there is no reason to EVER have stages with hazards. no fucing reason. ever. it's ********. truly. movement also sucks. but stuff like FoD moving platforms isn't an issue, the cloud on YS either

Not a valid argument because smash is a unique fighter in many mechanics. Even "neutral" stages aren't so neutral in smash.

I agree that CP'ing can lead to pretty gay things, but both players have equal access to it, so it's fair.

items are fair too both players have access to them

i realize my comparison is pretty void it's the fundamentals of stage neutrality that i'm trying to emphasize.
