TOURNAMENT FORMAT
Teams will compete using the Swiss system to find similarly ranked teams to play against in best-of-3 sets. For those unfamiliar how it works:
  • The first team you will fight against will have a similar collaborative rank to your own team's.
  • Afterwards, you will face off against teams with similar win-loss records in an attempt to rank up.
  • You will never fight the same team twice on the same console.
  • Tokens earned is based on your final rank after 5 rounds of playing- this means never give up!



PLAYING YOUR SET
Once you are assigned opponents, you are given exactly 9 days to complete your sets, though we will move on as soon as everyone has finished their game. Work together to schedule time to play. Failure to do so may result in a round forfeit.

Teams can either mutually agree on a stage to play, or use stage striking in PM or IRC:
  • Team 1 bans one legal stage.
  • Team 2 bans two legal stages.
  • This leaves Team 1 with a choice between two of the legal stages to start the set on.
  • The losing team of the previous round then picks the next stage from the legal list, if that stage has not been played in the set yet (bans for the first match do not matter).
A winner from the set should then report the scores to me through IRC or forum PM.

All Omega stages count as Final Destination in stage bans.



FAQ
Why no custom fighters? Not even custom specials?
Custom equipment can get absurd, and not in a good way. I personally don't have anything against custom specials, but it's very easy to get away with equipping items on online mode that might be very advantageous but hard to spot (i.e. Smooth Lander). Even if you could see the stat boosts, some items can cancel out each other but leave their passive benefits on, so the display reads them as not boosting anything. As such, it's safer to just disable them whole.

Are we locked to one character?
Nope! No character lock.

Why not have stage X/why no neutral and counterpicks?
First and foremost, the majority of us don't have tournament experience, so the stage-ban and counterpicking system might be new to a lot of players. I've chosen to stay with 5 neutral stages because it simplifies things, instead of having people have to consult a legal list of neutrals and counterpicks often. The idea is that you only have to PM or stick around IRC long enough to stage strike before going over to finish your set. More bans and checking legal stage picks complicates the process.



Use common sense and be a good sport. Do not try to jeopardize the quality of the event by not following the rules or intentionally being hard to work with for setting up matches. Doing so may terminate your partaking in this event, and, depending on the severity, Awards events as a whole.

With that in mind- good luck, have fun, happy Smashing, and No Johns.

I read that but are there even any combinations which leave you less than or equal to 0 in every stat?

Yup. It's been a problem before when people import movesets at tournaments

I actually don't know the full set because I don't mess with custom equipment enough, but I assume its getting convenient randomized items that balance out the stats of special equipment
