July 2016 Smash DLC Tournament!

Date & Time: TBD

A quick shout out to GoldenGhost for letting me steal borrow his format and let me change it to suit this

A little blurb before everybody starts freaking out here. Also hi, welcome, and all that jazz. This tournament was founded on the thought of one last tournament before all the new members join from Pit People hype. In the same way that we will embrace these new members as they join, it felt fitting to celebrate their arrival like DLC to the forums, meaning that this tournament is DLC exclusive*. Now I'm not saying if you don't have the DLC you have to buy it to join this, but If you have it, you've gotta use it. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, here's a list of what to expect.

*DLC isn't required to play, but if you have it, use it! If not, feel free to use any character, and your opponent will have a free choice of any stage.

- - - - - Rules - - - - -

-Super Smash Bros for Wii U

-1v1 matches

-2 stocks per player per match, 5 minute time limit

-Rounds will be best of 3

-Double Elimination (This may change depending on how many people can actually join)

-No items besides Smash Balls on low

-Stages will be selected from all DLC stages. If somebody does not own a stage, the other player may choose

-No custom moves or equipment

-DLC Characters are required unless you have none

-Don't be a jerk

- - - - - Prizes - - - - -

I have made up a nice variety of awards to hand out afterwards when the results are announced. That and bragging rights... I'm broke sorry guys :cry:

- - - - - Double Elimination - - - - -

Double elimination rules are pretty simple; basically if you lose one round, you still have another chance to keep playing and win the grand prize.

There will be a Winner's Bracket (WB) and a Loser's Bracket (LB); everyone starts in the WB. Obviously, if you win, you advance in your bracket. Losing in the WB drops you to the LB, and losing in the LB eliminates you from the tournament. The winning team of the WB (Winner's finals) is named the "Winner", and the winner of the LB (Loser's finals) will face off against the Winner to determine the Grand Champion (Grand Finals).

- - - - - FAQ's - - - - -

Something isn't right with my match, what do I do?

Usually unless somebody is hacking and you can't move or something weird, nothing serious will need to take effect, but for the most part, anything that goes wrong can be redone. If items were accidentally left on, or the wrong stage chosen, etc., just restart the match with the proper settings. Above all else, just stay calm and reasonable, for everybody's sake ;-)

What's the bracket? How do I know when I'm needed?

The bracket will be made and released a day or two before the tournament. After that, it's on you to either contact me or your opponent (through either PM, Skype, Discord, carrier pidgeon, Amazon Prime) and be responsible for yourself. Make sure that at least one of the two of you sends me a message after each fight with the results!

How do I contact you and/or my opponent?

This heavily depends on what methods of contact everyone has. If a majority of people have either Skype or Discord, I will create a chat group for everybody to stay chatty while awaiting their impending doom. If you don't have any third party apps, PM's (Private Messages) through the forums always work too! If you don't know when you're needed, either your opponent or I will reach out and give you a heads-up. Just make sure you're staying in touch with the right people at the right times! Not too hard, right? :-)

What if I suck at Smash?

It's all for fun here, so don't worry. Besides, not everybody plays DLC characters, so some people may be out of their element. You never know unless you try, right? :-D

Where is my opponent?

Unless your opponent is a Pokemon near me in Pokemon Go, I couldn't tell you. If you can't find them, send them a message of some sort. Give people a few minutes before just giving up, and be patient. Sometimes things come up and a match may have to be delayed last minute, but always report first before making any rash decisions.

Good luck! :-D

Since I won't be online at all from July 22nd-29th, I may have to pass on this one. In case the date of the tournament has to fall on any of those dates, good luck to everyone who will be playing. :-D

Sorry for the delay, but I've added everybody to the list. Currently the best possible time seems like either a Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon/evening (Based off UTC so it works reasonably for everybody) as long as that's good with everybody :-)
