Well down to the information that everybody wants to know, rule sets these rules are subject to change based on the responses I receive from your posts.

Super Smash Brothers: Brawl (singles and doubles)

The following list was created by members of the Smash Back Room (SBR). For version 2.0 discussion took place between January and March. While it is always up to the Tournament Organizers (TO) to determine the rules that best fit their tournaments, we recommend these rules be used as a base guideline to new and experienced TO’s alike.

General rules:

  • 3 Stock

  • 8 minute timer

  • Items are set to “off” and “none”

  • All sets with the exception of winner’s finals, loser’s finals, and the championship are best of 3 matches (best of 5 and above should be played out for any “finals” matches)

  • In the event of a dispute, controller ports will be selected by Rock-Paper-Scissors

  • No player may choose a stage they have already won on in that set unless agreed upon by both players.

  • In team matches, the ports will be determined in a 1221 fashion; whoever wins the RPS will choose first, then the opposing team will get their ports, and then the teammate of the RPS winner will get the last port.

  • If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage.

  • Metaknight’s Infinite Cape glitch is banned.

  • If a game ends with Bowser doing his suicide klaw and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for Bowser.

  • You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility, so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you’re using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller functions, it must be agreed upon by both parties.

  • Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.

  • Stalling is banned.

Stalling: The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling, while doing an infinite grab endlessly against a wall is. Any infinite chain grabs must end quickly after 300% has been reached so as to prevent excessive stalling.

Set format (In Order of Procedure):

  1. Opponents choose their characters for the first match *
  2. Opponents start the stage striking procedure
  3. Each player may announce one stage to be banned for counterpicks of the set
  4. The first game is played, using the stage chosen during step 2
  5. The loser of the previous match announces the next match’s stage from either the Starter Stage List or the Counter Stage List
  6. The winner of the previous match chooses their character
  7. The loser of the previous match chooses their character
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 for all proceeding matches
    *Double blind character selection may be called for the first match

Stage Lists

TOs must move stages from the starter/counterpick into either the starter or counterpick categories and must move stages from counterpick/banned into either the counterpick or banned categories.

Stages in the Starter/Counter and Counter/Banned list did not receive 2/3 majority, indicating no consensus could be reached on the stage.

The SBR Recommended rule list uses the stage striking system. In this system, players take turns striking stages from the starter list until only one remains; these stages are not banned and can be counterpicked later in the set. There must be an odd number of starter stages. There are up to 8 stages available for stages striking under the SBR stage list (4 in starter, 4 in starter/counter). We recommend as a TO that you decide on the ideal number of stages to use for striking at your tournaments (3, 5, 7).

I will be answering questions and updating this post frequently until the day of the event thank you.

So SF4 now is only a 3-man team tourney??? No singles SF4???

Sorry there is a singles im updating the first page now

Isn’t it kinda late to announce such a major tournament? I mean, are you expecting out of state people to show up to this with less than a one month notice?

Not trying to bash you or anything, just kinda shocked. I really don’t know what makes a tournament “major”.

The tournament was announced 5 months ago under a different thread however it wasn’t being watched properly this thread is basically just for updating purposes.

Old Thread But um… The old thread said September 4-6. What happened? o.O;

We where forced to push the day forward to make sure that we can afford the bonus prize support our venue at the last minute more or less tried to screw us over and we would not had been able to afford the bonus pot that we are promising. Also a couple other complications occurred like the even being around the same time as a couple other major events for these games such as penny arcade and some really major smash tourney so all in all for some people it would come out to be more convenient.

Sad to admit these realizations and complications all fell around the same time.


lets do it

Seeing as this is about a week away.

Can we have a tentative schedule?

Please do not make SF4 on Friday. -_-

Also, if this could be stickied seeing its a “major” and a month away. Also, you should probably edit the title and add.

1000.00$ Bonous SF4. It will def draw more attention.

*Schedule may vary day of event

20$ venue fee covers all days right?

Can you post up which days which games are on? I’ll probably only be able to make it on saturday :sad:

Also ps3 or xbox?

Who do I talk to to get this stickied?

And SF4 Will be Friday and Saturday

There will be 2 poolings so if you do not make it on friday you can still participate in pool 2 on saturday.

As for Sunday we are not to sure just yet we are doing some finishing touches and promoting like crazy but we will know by this Friday.

And SF4 will be on Xbox for this event =( sorry but we only have enough Xbox systems to run this properly.

And yes you will be given a wrist band to prove that you payed the Venue Fee so whichever day you come keep the wristband and your covered.

Do we have to pay the convention fee to attend the tournament? Seeing as finals are on Saturday, would that mean finalists would have to purchase a two or three day pass?

Most of S.Florida plays on Xbox so thats not a biggie.

And I am also curioous to Shocky’s question

Our fee is separate from the convention so you do not have to pay there fee once you enter the tournament.

so theres an anime convention going on as well?

Nearby yes there is.

Also can I meet up with the south Florida Community at ZP or something to give out some fliers and have a talk with them.

They have a gathering there tomorrow. I am sure you can meet then.

Anyone know how I can get in contact with Ben and Sam???

Also I need Flash Metroid (Peters) number or have him call me at 954-240-0503 ASAP.

Need to speak to them asap.

On Tuesday I am going to give some warm up sessions in south miami at noobie games from 3 - 9 be there you guys can meet our main sponsor and just have some fun.
