Now then, I assume you all want to actually partake in this tournament. Well, you're in luck! All you have to is post your username here on the Mario Boards, your Mii Name, your Nintendo Network Identification (NNID), and your time zone, which will make it easier for you and your opponent to assign times, in that order. Also, be sure you have "Accept Friend Requests" turned on in your friends list settings. Hoping to have at least 16 participants, the sign-ups for which will last until July 9th, and the actual tournament itself will start on July 10th! At least 16 people is what I'm hoping for, but I can probably include more than that. Once everyone and everything is set up, the tournament will be posted on Challonge and a link will be posted here in the opening post.
This will be a Swiss styled tournament, meaning you earn points based on your performance. In best 2 of 3 matches, you will earn 2 points for every win, 0 points for a loss, and both will earn 1 point in the event of a tie match. All players will move through five rounds, and the next round will begin once all matches have been played. After 3 rounds have passed, a winner will be declared.
Once you have been assigned a dueling partner, you must work out a time to battle each other. If a week has passed with no result from either of the participants, they both receive a total of no points and will move to the next round so as to keep things moving. However, if you have messaged your opponent and they do not respond by the following Sunday, then tell me and you will move through unopposed with an added four points (as if you won 2-0). Do try to contact your opponent as early as you can.
