CALM BEFORE THE STORM SSBB TOURNAMENT
Who is Jinx? Jinx is a just starting Anime Convention and Gaming Tournament Coverage Website/webcast. Yes, that’s a mouthful. When I say just starting, I mean we have 4 people and a website that won’t be published until the beginning of July XD. Anyway, this tournament will be covered and put up as the opening content for our website so don’t slouch!
The tournament format is Super Smash Brothers Brawl 1v1
Best 2/3; 3 Stock; 7 Minute Time Limit
Double Elimination (Unless over 64 Players in which it will be Single Elim to Top 8)
First Stage is either agreed upon or random (Neutrals) after the initial selection of characters.
Stage Strike: Each person strikes one stage for the entire set. This stage must be selected at the beginning of the match, after initial characters have been chosen.
Dave’s Stupid Rule: No stage may be picked twice if the choosing player has already won on that stage.
Advanced Slob Picks: Loser may choose the next stage or elect to go random, then winner may choose to change characters, then loser may change characters.
Double Blind Character pick may be called at the beginning of every set.
Neutrals: Smashville; Yoshi’s Island; Lylat Cruise; Battlefield; Final Destination
Counterpicks: Pokemon Stadium; Luigi’s Mansion; Delfino Plaza; Castle Siege; Pirate Ship; Frigate Orpheon; Halberd; Rainbow Cruise; Brinstar; Norfair; Skyworld; Yoshi’s Island Melee; Green Greens; Shadow Moses Island; Corneria
As Well As A Super Smash Brothers Brawl 2v2 Team Tournament:
All same rules as above with addition to:
Team Attack ON
Life Stealing allowed
As of now, this is just a one time tournament although depending on turn out and demand, we may turn this into a monthly or possibly even a biweekly thing. Anyway, onto the details!
Edit: If we get enough demands for an Items Standard tournament, we’ll run one at $5 a person with same payout. This one will be more for casual players who feel $12 is a bit spendy.
Currently, we’re looking at July 5th however, if this turns out to be a problem for too many since it is Independence Day weekend, we will push the date back to July 12th. Date will be confirmed on June 20th, 2 weeks prior to the 5th so hopefully that will be plenty of time for people to make plans for rides and such.
Edit: Right, about it being confirmed on June 20th… Sorry about that. The date for tournament stands at 07/05/08. Hopefully this won’t pull too many people out from being able to go. Sorry again XD.
Edit: Not sure if I posted a time… Registration starts at 11am, ends at 12, and tournament should start at 12:15. Team/Item tournament starts 30 or so minutes after singles tournament ends.
Woodland Pointe Clubhouse
6841 Ashwood Rd.
Woodbury, MN 55125
Just take 694/494 to Tamarack Rd, and turn towards the dead end (away from the Sheraton). Turn Right right before the road ends (Weir Rd.) and take that all the way down to Ashwood Rd. Take a Left and after 3 speed bumps, you’ll see the building on your right. Parking is all around the building.
WHY should we come to this?
Entry Fee: $12 for Singles; $25 for Doubles (Change will be at location)
Venue Fee: FREE!
1st Place: 60%
2nd Place: 30%
3rd Place: 10%
Venue Fee is waived due to the location only charging me a fully refundable deposit so long as everything is clean and nothing is damaged. Because of this, I cannot allow any outside food or drink. I’ll try to have some tables or something set up outside for people but please don’t hold me to it. I will also try to have pop and snacks on location for sale ($.50 for can of pop or bag of chips or something around there).
FINAL NOTES? (Updated!)
For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’ve been playing across the state here and there since Melee under the alias of either Dizzy or Dan playing White Dress Peach along with my fellow companion Izzy who is a Marth player with the left godhand (if you know him, you know what I’m talking about ^^). We’ve been to ACEN last year and this year, Detour multiple years, Anime Expo last year, and SakuraCon this year so we’re somewhat reputable in the Anime Convention world. As for Smash tournaments, we’ve been unable to really attend any due to our schedules which is one of the main reasons I’m running one. For the most part, if you’re thinking that there isn’t any competition worth driving here for from Iowa, Wisconsin, or even Northern MN, I highly recommend you come on over so that you can see what Southern MN has to offer.
Oh yea, before I forget to mention, everyone from MNstreetfighter knows me though they don’t know my abilities in Brawl, they can vouch that Minnesota is full of competitive players (no matter what the game).
Edit: Some people have been asking me about other set-ups for casuals and what not and after talking with friends, the following will be up for everyone to enjoy:
Probably 1 Additional Wii setup for Mario Kart
2+ Gamecube Setups: 1 for SSBM, 1 for whatever else we have (Probably Naruto GNT 4)
