===THE RULES===
All game specific rulesets can be found via the SmashLogic website here http://smashlogic.ca/events/

All non-smash fighters will be following the EVO 2014 rulesets

-OUR RULES-

This is ALL AGES event, and therefore we will not tolerate offensive action, or substance abuse. Any person thought to be abusing this may be kicked out of the event at the discretion of the hosts. (Due to the nature of tournaments however, we advise parents and kids to understand that swearing is a very common reaction in situations of stress, and ask that you bear with this)

All Brackets are run as double elimination so you have two chances before you are out.

ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY - It is both necessary and very important to remain available for your matches. As we are running many events and a tight schedule we will require players to act accordingly. If your name is called for a match and you do not show within the alloted time period 10 mins we may have to disqualify you, resulting in a forfeit of that round.

In order to remain true to the punctuality rule, please attempt to inform the bracket operators if you must leave for any reason, and we will try to accomodate (food, emergency etc) as best as we can. We will also be scheduling in a specific break period so that people aren’t forced within the venue the entire duration of the event.

Please try to keep the venue clean and respect others, these are just common manners.

===Payout===
Payouts will be either top 3 or top 8 dependant on number of entries

===Stream Info===
Main Stream(mostly smash, as well as finals):

Secondary streams:

(given our internet tests, it’s likely we will only have one stream running, so follow the main stream, the rest will be recorded if they are not operating)

Good luck with this


#3

How will Mario Kart 8 work? And what time will it start?? I have to work Saturday, so not sure if I can make it until I know the start time of the Kart,

Thanks.


#4

It hasn’t been updated, but how Mario Kart works is all day Saturday and until about 2pm Sunday (this may change, depending how busy we get) there is qualifications through time trials that are open for the competitors to attempt at their discretion when they are not in another bracket match.

Once 2pm rolls around on sunday, we’ll be making a top 16 bracket from the best times over the 4 tracks we have chosen for the trials (4 times per track) and they will square off in an elimination bracket 4 at a time top 2 advancing until final 4.


#5

Registation closing 4 hours before the bracket starts sucks for out-of-towners, just fyi


#6

are there kart rules??
