    Sorry I didn't end up making it into this one. I knew I had plans for Saturday morning, but I found out yesterday that I'll be busy most of the evening as well. Alas! Maybe I can at least get a few games in with people tonight or Sunday?

    Today's the big day everyone. The tournament for the coveted Wii Fit Trainer Amiibo begins in less than 12 hours

    I want to see everyone in the matchmaking IRC no later than 9:15 PM EST.

    IF YOU ARE NOT PRESENT WITHIN 10 MINUTES OF THE START OF THE TOURNAMENT YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

    The IRC for those of you who do not know is located Here

    A quick reminder of the rules will be given at 9:15. The tournament will begin shortly thereafter.

    We cannot effectively send matches for proof I am afraid, so you are not inclined to save them for that purpose. Given this, if there is a dispute regarding a win and it is not settled promptly, BOTH CONTESTANTS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

    A reminder of the stages

    Wii U stage List
    Neutral:
    Battlefield
    Final Destination
    Kongo 64
    Smashville
    Town and City
    Duck Hunt

    Counterpick Stages:
    Wily's Omega(For the wall platform variant)
    Halberd
    Windy Hill
    Mario Galaxy
    Mario Circuit
    Mario Circuit(Brawl)
    Delfino
    Skyloft
    Norfai
    Orbital Gate(Debatable)
    Lylat
    Castle Siege
    Coliseum
    Kalos Pokemon League
    Pokemon Stadium 2
    Yoshi's Wolly World(Debatable)
    Gamer
    Garden of Hope
    Wii Fit Studio
    Wrecking Crew
    Pilot Wings
    Wuhu Island
    Boxing Ring

    Banned Stages:
    Temple
    Palutena Temple
    Great Cave Offensive
    PAC-LAND
    Luigi's Mansion
    Bridge of Eldin
    Onett
    Pyrosphere
    Yoshi's Island(Melee)
    Skyworld
    Gaur Plains
    75M
    Jungle Hijinx
    Flat Zone X

    3DS Stage List
    Neutral:
    Final Destination
    Tortimer Island
    Battlefield
    Lumiose City
    Yoshi's Island

    Counterpick:
    Wily's Omega
    Reset Bomb
    Mute City
    Rainbow Road
    Tomadachi Life
    Pictochat 2
    Boxing Ring
    Brinstar
    Pac Maze
    Find Mii
    N's Castle/Unova
    Arena Ferox
    Wily Castle

    Banned:
    3D land
    Golden Plains
    Paper Mario
    Mushroomy Kingdom
    Corneria
    Spirit Tracks
    Gerudo Valley
    Warioware
    Magicant
    Living Room
    Balloon Fight
    Gaur Plains
    Jungle Japes
    Green Hill Zone

    When you start the first of the Best of 3, you will have had to already made sure that your Random Stage Select is limited to the neutral options. I believe that this random only kicks in online if both players choose Random: If only one person chooses Random it counts as a forfeiture of their stage pick. I will let you know for sure later.

    I will be in the IRC all day. Please stop by to ask me any questions

    We will begin with the Smash 3DS tournament at 9:30, finish that, then start the Wii U tournament shortly after 3DS finishes. THOSE THAT ENTERED WII U WILL STILL NEED TO BE HERE AT 9:15 TO HEAR THE RULES. If you want to leave and wait for your tournament, fine, but since we have no way of effectively contacting you, you might miss your window and be disqualified.

    Why the fuck is Find Mii legal, but Gerudo Valley and Coneria are banned?!? How is a stage with random power-ups and de-buffs legal, but those aren't?

    Golden Plains is more fair than Find Mii... At least you have to earn that power up...

    Kongo Jungle is not a neutral... that stage has caused me more problems than all of Ridley and Metal Face combined... and Luigi's is banned, but coward's paradise Jungle Hijinx is a counter-pick?

    UNACCEPTABLE.

    I've elaborated very clearly my stance on the stages I banned. Most have Cave of life or Camping problems.

    But I'll quickly sum up why Corneria and Gerudo are gone.

    Corneria is a campy dream as well as having stupid close borders

    Gerudo is the opposite, with ginormous borders. I let Torimer's ride because it's not as disruptive and doesn't have a giant pit in the middle or is a walk off.

    Jungle Hijinx I'll give you because it's a leftover I meant to take out but didn't.

    Also, why are you both raising this shit now, THE DAY OF THE TOURNAMENT. These have been up for over two weeks. Speak sooner

    kongo jungle 64 is almost a perfectly neutral stage...your character's are big enough now that the size isn't anything to worry about

    jeezus, i think you went too lenient on the stage choices. we want to make the tournament shorter, not longer

    like holy dear god, some of these stages choices are really bad that even po is disagreeing with some of them

    i still wouldn't separate wily's omega from the other omega stages, they're all CP, just announce the one you want to use but anyways

    is mine more conservative than yours? yea but it's not bat shit crazy. you ban some stages for circle camping but not others which have a worse problem with circle camping (tomodachi life and boxing ring are among them). some stages offer power-ups (find mii) or have a crazy cave of life (mario circuit). i know we want to have as expansive of a list of stages but have some control. don't throw everything into the bag at once, ease us into it. some of these stages are out of wack though (pac maze and pictochat 2 are terrible for tournament settings)

    you also did not discuss the stage list for the tournament at all in this thread which is why some of us are going to be a bit perturbed

    i still think it would've been better to start off with a smaller list than what CG threw at us. a lot of those stages are crazy
  • Colonel-GilgameshColonel-Gilgamesh Akuma Matata Joined: Posts: 9,376
    I know I've made efforts to discuss stages in that thread, dabble with stages in the IRC with Sir_Tubbsy, and encouraged people to talk about it in the thread when they were talking about it in IRC so everyone could see it

  • Colonel-GilgameshColonel-Gilgamesh Akuma Matata Joined: Posts: 9,376
    Part of the reason for the chaotic list Mood is that we don't know where to draw the line. In general, none of us really play and use the tactics that break a lot of these stages. Further, many of us do not want to limit ourselves to the safest ones. As such, you could say we're feeling things out still. With an actual tournament under our belt, we'll have better knowledge

    Just because he doesn't like our ruleset doesn't make his reasoning dumb.

    No, it's because of dumb. Why? 'cause this shit is FREE.

    I could get that argument if you were payin' a fuckin' entry fee...

    It also has something on the line.

    Ultimately I think @Rayne_‌ doesn't want to enter something where win/loss matters more, especially if it's not going to really help him on the offline tourney side of things. Our ruleset isn't exactly "the norm," as it were.

    I like having a larger stage list. Makes it WAY more interesting.
    I'm not even competing, and I pointed out my concerns with the stage list within a day of it being posted. Everyone else is lazy.
