Stage Striking will be in effect for the first match of the set. The player with the lower port will get to choose the first strike. Loser choses ban before next match.


One ban per player per set. To be chosen after loss.

Modified DSR: You cannot go back to the last stage you won in a set, unless agreed upon by the other player.


The player choice clause!:: If both players agree to a rule outside of my ruleset, feel free to play by that. If one player wants to counterpick Mute City and the other player is fine with that because they think it's a fair stage, then that is more than fine. However in the event the two players disagree, house rules stand.





Brawl


Singles:


3 Stock

8 Minute Time Limit

Items are set to "off" and "none"


-If you need to add your name to change your controls, please remember to do so, and do it quickly. You should not quit in the middle of a match if you realize your controls are wrong.

-First round consists of players choosing their characters. During this time either player can call for a double blind pick . The first stage will then be determined by the stage striking method. One player strikes one stage and then the next player strikes two stages. Next, the original player chooses a stage out of the final two that are available to him or her.(If both players can't agree on who strikes first a best 2/3 game of rock, paper, scissors will be played. The winner chooses who goes first.) After the first match is over, each player bans one stage that can not be used in counter picks.

-Match two/three will first consist of the previous loser picking a stage, then the previous winner picking their character, and finally the previous loser picking their character.

-You may not counter pick a stage you have already won on earlier that set unless your opponent agrees to it.

-All sets with the exception of winner's finals, loser's finals, and the championship are best of 3 matches, with the aforementioned Finals sets being best 3/5 games.

Neutral Stages:

o Battlefield
o Final Destination
o Smashville
o Yoshi's Island (Brawl)
o Lylat Cruise


* Counterpick Stages:

o Delfino Plaza
o Castle Siege
o Frigate Orpheon
o Battleship Halberd
o Rainbow Cruise
o Brinstar
o Pokemon Stadium 1


-The 50 Ledge Grab Rule will be in effect, until the community as a whole comes up with a set number, we will make the limit 50 grabs. If the game ends with the time running out and your stats show that you went over 50 ledge grabs, you will automatically lose that round. If both people go over 50, then the participating player Who has the highest stock and or lowest percentage on that stock will win. If both player have the same stock and percentage when the timer runs out, then a 1 stock rematch will occur. This rule does not apply to doubles.

-Standing Infinites are BANNED which include (but are not limited to) Dedede's small-step chain grab, Marth's standing infinite chain grab on Ness and Lucas, etc.
-All Ice Climber chain grabs are legal until after their opponent is over 250%.
-The Ice Climber's fusion glitch is banned.
-Meta knight's Infinite cape glitch is banned
-If there is a dispute over controller ports, play Rock Paper Scissors for it (best 2 out of 3, no items, FD only).
- Suicide Move Rules: (all situations are when both players are at 1 stock)
o If a player successfully ends the match with either Bowser or Ganondorf's over B attack by suicide, then the player who initiated the move wins.
o If a player ends the match by swallowing with Kirby or DDD and falling off the stage and the game counts it as a tie the one who initiated the move will win the round
-Players using a Wii-mote to play must take their batteries out when not playing. We can't be having wii's be interrupted because someone made a mistake. I will be enforcing this heavily, and there will be penalties if people do not obey.
-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.


Doubles:


- Same standard rules and stages as singles.
--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.
- Chibo's Color-Blind Rule: If a player on a team is using a character that might make it tough to determine the teams color (like Sonic, Lucario, or Pokemon Trainer), they are allowed to request control of a certain color to help lessen confusion.
-Stock sharing is allowed.
-Team Attack is on

I want to expect better of you, but I know not to
I'd suggest using stage striking for Melee, possibly the MBR rules, perhaps a similar ruleset modified (I'm not personally crazy about MBR rules, but I think they're better than these).

Indianapolis is pretty far, but if this turnout looks legit, I may be up for it.

I'm assuming if we enter melee singles we can't enter brawl singles as well?
You can if you'd like, But you must get to your match soon after it's called. We'll do are best not to call someone for a tourney match in Melee and then call for their Brawl match right after and vice versa

lame date. already attending websters tourney that has a $300 pot bonus.
Yeah you guys, this is a terrible date for this tournament. For A LOT of players (smashers and then some) from IA, MI, IL, WI, TX, CA and OH are considering coming to my tournament ON THE SAME DATE AS THIS. Thread is located here: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=252368 .

I would hate for our schedules to bumb heads. For I know we both want as many attendees as possible. And unfortunately, I definitely CAN NOT change my date (not to mention that I posted my tournament months in advance too :( ).

So I am SERIOUSLY hoping that you guys are able and WILLING to change your date for this tournament.

Respectfully,

Webster/Devildigimon

Clearly, you two cannot change your dates, so shut up and throw both events. Me and 8 of MD/VA's finest will be coming to this tourney because VGbootcamp is too goodz.

P.S: A coffee house? That's kk, I guess. Pics or GTFO.

Uhmmm FYI it's a good size coffee house capable of holding at lease 200+ people. Great food, at affordable prices and we're giving away exceptional cash bonuses.

So kindly watch your ****ing mouth son.

Thanks. :ohwell:

And like I said, my tournament was posted first, appropriately with time in advanced notice. And I considered other tournaments that were being scheduled. This tournament (your tournament), did none of the above...so STFU!!!

Very respectful of a TO host to be talking to someone like that.

Again, STFU and get over the fact that this tourney is happening.

Don't be rude about it.

GG.

They probably did, just didn't care enough to switch it around. You don't have a reason to be in this thread, you're just mad that this tournament's gonna steal all your entrants.

Consider that it'd be better for the midwest Smash scene as a whole to have two big tournaments one after another instead of two smaller tournaments on the same day. You mentioned how it's "just a coffee house" when Alex Strife's (The very tournament you mentioned) venue is even smaller than the coffee house this takes place at. Aaaaaand...

The fact of the matter is, you're trying to strong-arm people from this one to yours, and are making up excuses to make up for that. It's pretty obvious you're just being selfish and are completely ignoring the communities as a whole, so I doubt this'll have any effect, but if you're going to do so, don't give BS responses.

Very respectful of a TO host to be talking to someone like that.
Never heard other TOs talk worse than that. Nope. None.

Uhmmm NO! You were being rude at first. Hence your post that I quote. You sound like the typical tough guy behind a computer screen. Good luck with that...

LAME!!! You're a joke. And I'm done talking with you.

I DO actually have a reason to be in this thread, because it's MY tournament that we're discussing. People have already came in here and asked for this tournament's date to be changed out of respect for mine. My tournament was POSTED 4 months ago with a **** ton of interest (see my thread in midwest regional section). So yeah I am a little annoyed, because I purposely made sure to post my tournament to NOT collide with other important tournaments happening, and at the SAME TIME, giving possible attendees advance notice. So what do you expect for me to do?

And by how your post sounds, it proves my point: that the T.Os of this tournament (your tournament), showed no respect whatsoever for my tournament and the players that considered going. And that's BOGUS! Period.

Am I worried about losing players coming to my tournament? No! I'm going to throw a great show with good rewards for showing up and placing. So it's all good over here playboi.

So anyways, I wish you luck. And YES! I am done posting in here...unless my name or my tournament is brought up.

The fact that this tournament is blatantly on the same day as another fairly big regional tournament is really, really disappointing. Didn't you guys look around.

Switch the date for this and I'll gladly come to this, the other tournament has a $300 (with possibily more to come) pot bonus...

The disrespect that people have been showing to DevilDigimon in this topic is really, really upsetting. In all fairness, his tournament was posted first, and has been getting attention from M2K, MI (Lain, Judge, etc....), and other big names in the smash community. The TO's behind this tournament are acting very very childish, and it's pretty upsetting to see this.

Please just consider changing the date, it's far better for our region to host two big tournaments on two different weekends then it is for 2 tournaments which both will have smaller attendance to be on the same weekend. =\

We present to you the VG Boot Camp 2010 National Circuit. We are proud to bring you this circuit, organized with the help of the video game communities across the United States, but under the direct supervision of VG Boot Camp. We take pride in and look forward to bringing our patrons to the best competitive gaming experience possible. We feel our job is to bring a balanced number of events to each region, to allow for more local competitors to gain access to something bigger, but still allow nation wide access to each event. As gamers ourselves, we intimately understand what is fair in a gaming competition, we will be consistent in our judging and persistent in keeping fair brackets as well as fair rules. As tourney organizers we will also be seeking to bring you the best and most entertaining event as possible.

If you intimately understand what is fair in a gaming competition, and you really wish to bring a balanced number of events to each region, you would reconsider the date. Webster takes a lot of pride in his tournaments, and he is the best T.O. I have ever encountered. He deserves every sponsorship that he received for his upcoming tournament, and if he was able to run his tournament without any interference, it would likely be one of the best the Midwest has ever experienced.

Holding both tournaments the same weekend will severely impact both tournaments' turnouts, which means less money and competition for the winners, and less fun for everyone. Webster posted this tournament 4 months ago and is in way too deep with his sponsors to change the date. This is a huge mistake and I know that whoever organizes the tournaments for VGBootCamp would agree. I beg you to do the right thing and reschedule the tournament. I guarantee that the Midwest will look more favorably upon VGBootCamp, and they will be much more likely to support and attend future VGBootCamp events.

I know the TO's of this tournament. They sent a respectful, private message to DevilDigimon, and haven't responded to the issue yet otherwise. Anyone else who has addressed the situation isn't a part of VGBootCamp.

DevilDigimon, you are responding to everyone who opposes your position as if they are all a part of organizing this tourney. That's not really fair.

If you really want to work this out, you should probably just respond to their private message, rather than start a flame war.
