2 VS 2 TOURNAMENT RULES
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Rules for doubles are almost identical to those of singles but differ as follows:

Team attack is set to "on"
Share stock is permitted.

The following additional stages are banned:
Pirate Ship
Distant Planet
Rainbow Cruise
Yoshi's Island (Pipes)


1 VS 1 TOURNAMENT RULES
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

*Double elimination bracket
*In addition to separating friends, bracket will be seeded in such a way that top ranking players will not have to face each other in the first round.
***The data used to seed the results is taken directly from our past events.

* Best 2 out of 3 matches.
* Best 3 out of 5 in Semi-Finals.
* Best 3 out of 5 in Finals.

*When a set is over both players must announce to the organizer they have won/lost immediately.

*All tvs are for tournament games only. Friendlies will be considered if time constraints allow.

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

* 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.

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

*A banned stage may only be played if both players agree on it.

Set format (In Order of Procedure):
1. Opponents choose their characters for the first match*
2. Each player may announce one stage to strike (ban) for the entire set
3. The first game is random stage from the list of legal stages (minus any striked stage)
4. The loser of the previous match announces the next match's stage from either the Starter Stage List or the Counter Stage List (no striked stage can be picked)
5. The winner of the previous match chooses their character
6. The loser of the previous match chooses their character
7. Repeat steps 4-6 for all proceeding matches
*Double blind character selection may be called for the first match

JUSTIN’s note - Basically, the first round of a best of 3 is played on a neutral stage, neutral being one of several stages that interfere the least with a match, and give the fewest characters on the roster major advantages or disadvantages.

After the first match, the losing player may counterpick a stage. He may choose from any of the neutrals if s/he wishes, but there's also a list of "CP" stages that may be chosen. The art of counterpicking is something that escapes a lot of people... it's worth figuring out what stages you do well on, and for the sake of your characters, too. Of course, you can't totally screw the winning player over, so you have to choose a stage first, then s/he picks a character, then you pick your character.

If you win, the opponent goes through the same process, so be prepared for any stage that might be thrown at you. The only exceptions are: You cannot CP a stage that you won on (usually doesn't happen until finals anyway), and if you really hate a certain stage, you can ban it BEFORE you play any of your matches. That includes neutrals and CP stages, none of them may be selected, even randomly. Personally, I usually strike Final Destination just in case, heheh.

GAMEPLAY SPECIFIC RULES
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

* 3 Stock
* 8 minute timer
* Items are set to "off" and "none"
* If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage.
* Marth's Deathgrab on Ness/Lucas is banned.
* DDD’s standing infinite is banned.
* Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned.
* If a game ends with Ganondorf/Bowser using Ganoncide/Bowsercide and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for Ganondorf/Bowser.
* If a game ends with DDD/Kirby using Inhale Suicide and it ends in sudden death, the match will be restarted at 1 stock.
* 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.
Stalling: The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling, while doing an infinite grab endlessly against a wall is. Any infinite chain grabs must end quickly after 300% has been reached so as to prevent excessive stalling.

****. The best player in Halifax plays Luigi, and you people still have Corneria as a counterpick? Now I can see why Zhao does so well LOL.

Just for that, I think I'll catch a plane to Nova Scotia and win this whole **** thing. ;)

If you caught flight here and wont both singles and doubles yourself, i doubt the money would be worth it. Were a pretty small Community.

Apparently, someone has hacked Ganon's sword for Brawl+. He can now use sword! But only for some of his moves, like fair, jab, etc.

:bee:

Likely Brackets. we could do 6 pools of 6 and the top two continue on into a double elimination bracket. of 12 people. but i don't think that will happen.

We could potentially try 4 pools of 10 if we get 40 people, not sure though. A lot of people would mean a looong as bracket too :(
