I’ll give some thoughts on the tourny tomorrow, but overall, it seems like it went very well.

I also ran an 8 person round robin after this which lasted 4 rounds. :woot:

ONLINE TOURNEY

TUESDAY MARCH-18-2008
6:45PM PST signups starts, Tourney will begin around 7PM (or whenever I managed to get home from work)
Try to arrive early so we can start on time!!

32 ENTRANTS MAX (will expand to 64 if enough people show interest/register)

**
Rules: (THESE MAYBE BE MODIFIED UP UNTIL TOURNAMENT STARTS, PLEASE KEEP UPDATED ON CHANGES)**

-1v1
-2 stock, 3 minutes - BEST OUT OF 5 (3 out of 5 wins)
-DOUBLE ELIMINATION

-Default settings!
-All items on, Spawn rate MEDIUM
-All stages allowed
-First stage will be picked at random (I will tell you what stage first match is on)
-Winner must keep character
-Loser may change character and they will battle on a new random stage
OR
-Loser may keep same character and pick stage.

- On giving it some thought for the first matchup stage (which should be random), since there is no reliable way to see that it was really picked random, I'm thinking I will create a random game on my own system, and assign each pair's first stage for "random".  (I will not be entering this tourney as I feel I'll have my hands full organizing).
  • If it goes to sudden death, sudden death is in effect
  • Match results will be reported to me in the IRC channel.
  • If **NEITHER **player has extra options open (stock with time limit), matches will be played on 3 minute timer. Game ends when timer runs out OR when someone has died twice. At that point the person who has died twice is to stop moving until the timer has run out.
    -IF YOU PLAY A TIMED MATCH BECAUSE NEITHER PLAYER HAS EXTRA OPTIONS UNLOCKED, PLEASE NOTIFY ME BEFOREHAND.

Requirements:

-At least 1 empty slot on your brawl friend list (for your opponent each round)
-IRC (match setups/results will be done via IRC) - Connect to channel #srkbrawl on EFNET (http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=151627)
-IF YOU ARE NOT ON IRC (I will tell everyone to enter another channel come tourney time), YOU WILL BE DROPPED FROM THE TOURNEY!

How it will go:

-After matchups are posted, The two opponents will register each other’s friend code (if necessary) and begin the game

-I will assign the beginning random stage select for each pair and the game must start on that stage.

-The players pick their char AFTER the stage is announced by me (random out of all possible stages).

-The loser has the option of changing his char and going random stage (request a new random stage from me)
** OR**
-The loser may keep his character and begin on a stage of his choice.

-Continue playing until one player has won 3 rounds then report results and wait for your next match.

-IF YOU DROP OUT, let me know.

-If you do not respond within 3 minutes of your match, you will be given a loss, so please be prompt/alert. I’m not waiting extra long for anyone and I don’t want to have this go all night.

Notes:

This will be an online tournament, capped at 32 players. The time limit is 3 minute, thus replays can be saved.

As Mr.Wizard stated, (http://forums.shoryuken.com/showpost.php?p=4924312&postcount=601) we are seeing how Brawl works.

This is to see whats horribly broken and explore the game, this is why all items are on and settings are on default.

Again. THIS IS TO SEE WHATS HORRIBLY BROKEN AND EXPLORE THE GAME.

**IF YOU SEE SOMETHING HORRIBLY WRONG AND BROKEN AND WANT TO MAKE A CASE FOR BANNING,
RECORD THE GAMEPLAY AND CONTACT ME TO SEND IT TO ME. **

As such, I do not want complaints about unfair match ups, items are bs, etc. If you do not like these rules, DO NOT ENTER. If you are going to bitch and complain, DO NOT ENTER. If you are willing to make a case for why certain things should be banned, certain rulesets, etc… then enter and **BACK UP YOUR STATEMENTS.
**

Logistics:

You may sign up here now and I will take the first 32. **IF YOU REGISTER, INCLUDE YOUR BRAWL GAMERTAG (5 letter one) SO THAT YOUR OPPONENTS CAN IDENTIFY YOU ON THEIR FRIEND LIST). ** If 32 people are not commited by tomorrow evening, I will ask in the irc channel. If you are not in the IRC channel at the assigned time 6:45PST, I will remove you and replace you with someone else. If there is a huge response/signups, I may increase the registrant cap to 64. This is unofficial, with no prizes, maybe some moderate bragging rights etc. **Rules are unable to be enforced, so I am expecting the honor rule. **

The main purpose of this tournament is to HELP ESTABLISH AN EVO RULESET.
You can be a part of that process, so I expect cooperation.

This will probably not run too smoothly, but hopefully we can make this work and future tournies will be run more efficiently.

If you have additional questions/issues/comments regarding these rules or this tournament, post up what you have to say here. I will change rules, requirements, etc as necsesary. Nothing here is set in stone until the tourney begins tomorrow, so please be aware of changes.

Other things:

I know the game is new, and everyone may not have unlocked all characters/stages/options yet. I request if you plan to participate, to have AS MUCH unlocked as possible. Especially at least stages, and extra options. You have a day to unlock as much as possible, since we need to explore all stages at least. Thank you.

Here is a guide for unlocking characters/stages/Extra rules mode (obvious spoilers)

I am also trying to decide what should be done in case of extreme lag and people that can’t connect. If you have ideas on how to resolve this, please post up suggestions. As of right now, if two people can’t connect…I will attempt to determine which player is the cause. Both players should attemp to host the game. If that still does not work and the person who is the cause is indeterminable, I may have some random way of determining who advances… maybe Rock/Paper/Scissors or something else if someone can come up with a better suggestion.

I am currently undecided if I should ask everyone to save ALL replays, incase someone claims something is overpowered, there might be another vid where it shows that something is not overpowered… like dodging Final Smash or dragoon or something… or maybe we can look for counter arguments in future tournaments… not sure. **Anyone have thoughts/opinions on this? **

PS:
This is a non-official unsanctioned SRK tourney, but I am doing this for the benefit of the SRK, SWF, and EVO communities. Any help is appreciated.

NOTE: The 32 cap has been hit, I’ll still note down people who want to play, as I expect no-shows and drop outs. If enough people show interest, maybe high 40’s, low 50’s, I may expand the bracket to 64. So if you still want to help the EVO ruleset evolve, sign up.:woot:

#7

Sign me up. I’m not 100% sure I’ll be able to, but 90-95% sure. Depends on how the kid is.

#10

#11

Signing up, and WTP for Brawl Tag


#12

Got piano lessons at that time <_<


#13

hmmmm maybe I’ll get in this just to show people how incredibly broken the run away game on hyrule and new pork is.


#14

I would be game for that…but I have some problems with some players (mainly White Shadow) where we can’t connect to eachother, so I dunno if I’d be able to actually participate…

Anyway, 0860-2923-0192 is the code, SMAK is the handle.

–from the other thread.


#15

Assuming I’m free at that time I’m down.


#16

Took me forever to figure out as well. Takes 200 KO’s. Check in your brawl records data. Special brawl KO’s don’t count. I just did regular 20 stock, high damage, high speed matches or something, and just kept spamming kills on level 1 computers. Doesn’t take too long.

As for the tourney, I’ll be out for this one sadly, but I will bring the hype in future tourneys!
