Before I begin, I want to say that on July 3rd, the Oklahoma smash community lost one of its members--SolidusPriggan or Forest Sharp as we knew him--in a tragic car accident that killed both him and his girlfriend Ashlie Johnson.

They were both young, in school and in the prime of their life. Their loss came at a shock to us especially because those two seemed to run on an endless supply of energy; and it was from that energy that Forest initially wanted to throw a huge tournament in Oklahoma for fighting game fans.

Forest's intention was to host the tourney in conjunction with HxC Lan Center and OKgamers.com. With their help, he was confident that he could throw a successful tournament to draw in people from different crowds for the purpose of having fun together. It is in that tradition that we of the Oklahoma Smash community wish to fulfill his desire and throw Super Bit Wars.

General Rules

  • Regular sets are best of 3 matches until Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals which is 3/5 games.
  • The Tournament Host is the arbiter of all disputes.
  • Blind Picks: the first character selection of a set must be without prior knowledge of the opponent's character selection for both players.
  • Modified Dave's Stupid Rule: No player can counter pick a stage he or she has previously won on unless agreed upon by both players.
  • Gentleman's clause: any stage may be played on so long as both players and the Tournament Host agree to it, including banned stages. This can be used in tandem with the Modified Dave's Stupid Rule (MDSR).
  • Timed out matches will be determined by the remaining number of lives, then percentage of the current stock. In the event of a percentage tie, replay that match. Any Sudden Death match is strictly not to be played.

Additional Rules for Teams Play

Brawl (Singles and Teams)
[Collapse=Brawl Rules]

Starter Stage List:

  • Battlefield
  • Final Destination
  • Lylat Cruise
  • Smashville
  • Yoshi's Island (Brawl)
  • Castle Siege
  • Pokemon Stadium 1

Counter Stage List:

  • Battleship Halberd
  • Brinstar
  • Delfino Plaza
  • Frigate Orpheon
  • Pokémon Stadium 2
  • Rainbow Cruise

General Rules
3 Stocks
8 Minute Time Limit
Items set to "Off" and "None"
All infinites are legal.
Meta Knight's Infinite Cape Glitch and Extended Cape Glitch are banned.
There is a Ledge Grab Limit of 35 for Meta Knight and 50 for all other characters. If a game goes to time and one player goes over the Ledge Grab Limit for their character, they will automatically lose the game. If both players exceed their Ledge Grab Limit, then this rule is ignored.
The act of stalling is banned: stalling is intentionally making the game unplayable: Such as becoming invisible, continuing infinites past 300%, and reaching a position that your opponent can never reach you.
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.
If the Ledge Grab Limit does not declare one player the winner, the winner will be declared by what the game says in all situations, except for when players are presented with sudden death:
In the event of a match going to time, the winner will be determined by who has less percent (stock difference still takes priority but will be shown in the results screen).
If the match ends with both players dying at the same time (either coincidentally or via suicide move) or if time ran out with both players at equal percent, a one stock three minute rematch will be played on the same stage. For a tie-breaker match, a Ledge Grab Limit of 13 is used for Meta Knight, and 18 for all other characters.

Additional Rules for Teams Play
Team Attack set to "On"
Life stealing is allowed.
In the event of a game reaching the time limit, if a single player on a team exceeds their Ledge Grab Limit, that team loses. If one or more players on both teams exceed their Ledge Grab Limit, then the Ledge Grab Limit rule is ignored.
In the event of a game going to time and the Ledge Grab Limit can not determine a winner and both teams have an equal amount of combined stocks, then whichever team has a lower combined percent is declared the winner.
If a player is using the character Pokemon Trainer, Lucario, or Sonic, either team may request that team colors be changed to make it easier to tell the difference between team players.[/Collapse]

Other games:
Marvel vs Capcom 3 (360) (srk)
Mortal Kombat 9 (360) (srk)
BlazBlue CS2 (PS3) (dustloop)
Arcana Heart 3 (PS3 - 4:3 ratio) (dustloop)(homingcancel)
Melty Blood Actress Again (PS2) (dustloop)(homingcancel)
Late Night Ironman (???)[/QUOTE]

Additional Information:
There will be an additional pot funded by OU's Japanese and Manga Society as well as from a bonus pot that Forest had collected. The winner of this bonus pot will be granted to the best fighting game player at the tournament (meaning the most versatile player who places highest across the most amount of games)

Also, there will be housing given to OoS players, just allows us some time to figure out housing arrangements.

Finally, all other fighters will follow their own standard rule set so the Capcom fighters, MK9, and BB:CS2 will follow EVO rules. AH3 or Meltyblood will follow tourney standards from Homingcancel and such.

Just an update on Marvel, we do have 8 EVO monitors for lagless HD play, and on top of that, the guys at HxC has told me that about 32+ people wanna show up for just Marvel.

As for other games, around the same amount apparently for MK9, and some interest in the Dallas area for BB:CS2.

As Arcana Hearts or Melty Blood, Chris's got kids who're interested in coming solely for those games.

Now I just need smashers to step up.

I heard about this tragic accident from the Arkansas thread. Such terrible news =/ All I can say to Forest if you're out there is have fun smashing in the afterlife with NesNoob, Undisput3d, Marky Mark, KishCubed, and any other deceased smash player I am not aware of.

As far as this tournament goes...I would absolutely love to go. I'm going to talk to the crew about it and we'll do everything we can to get there. It's not that far and it looks pretty good, plus we'd like to support Forests memory. August is an insanely busy month for me with my birthday, MIST, Pathways, and a schedule change at work all taking place. But like I said, we'll do what we can to get there.

I'm pretty sure Gravity suggested that we house people and I am totally okay with that idea. :o I don't know what our living arrangements will be like but we could probably handle a carload.

If you could make it out here, sir, that would be superchill.

Now's my chance to play you again TypeEX...this time things will be different. Put me in your carpool Denti.....

Prob gonna make this
It would be great to hang with you again, play some MVC3. I"m gonna see if Eddy Lopez wants to go too...he's gotten pretty damn good at MVC3 we've been practicing at his place off and on for the past couple of weeks.

Yo sars on the mvc3 tourney do they have a 360 to ps3 converter for my dpad? If so my chance of attending is going to be alot higher.
You should show up bro. It'll be fun.

Also I'm gonna go and bring some stuff of my own....any one up for Third Strike or Capcom vs SNK 2?

I'll get housing situations finished up once I get back to Louisiana with a full list of who can house + how many they're willing to.

Also awesome @ Rubyiris wanting to come to this tourney.
