Petition for Ruleset change!

The thread for discussion hit over 25 pages in 2 days, obviously something is wrong. With that, I give you:

Diem’s Ruleset of awesomeness!

These are the rules I, and the rest of the major smash community would like to see applied. I’m already gaining massive support on this, so I hope everyone who hasn’t seen this to take an honest look, and decide for themselves. These rules have been enforced at my tournaments I host monthly, and I’ve never gotten a rule complaint.

As a sidenote: I’m a mod of, as well as a certified host on both allisbrawl, and I know my stuff in and out.

  • Matches will be THREE (3) Stock, Seven (7) minute time limit.
  • Double Elimination. All matches will be 2/3, with all finals being 3/5.
  • No pools, random seeding for doubles. Skill seeded pools, and pool seeding for singles.
  • Items will be off, while team attack will be on! Life stealing is allowed.
  • Smashballs will be OFF.
  • Advanced Slob picks: First match is a blind pick, where the competitors will tell their character to a judge, a proceed. The Loser of the first match will then pick the next stage, then the winner may choose his character. After, the loser will choose his character and begin. The same will happen for the third match, if forced.
  • Dave’s Stupid Rule Modified will be in effect. The same stage can not be played twice in a row in a single set.
  • The Mage’s DQ rule is also in effect:
    -2 Minutes Late ? Warning/Loss of first stock
    -4 Minutes Late ? Loss of first match of set
    -6 Minutes Late ? Loss of set)
  • -Stalling under a stage out of reach;
    -Running away to run the time limit. (This is only if your opponent cannot by any means reach you, outside of SD’ing)
