WABAPALOOZA:GAMING TOURNAMENT FESTIVAL:MAY 23rd,24th,& 25th:DULUTH, GA

**: Wabapalooza : Gaming Tournament Festival: **

What is Waba?
Hmmmmmm…it’s a gaming center with PCs, table tennis, current consoles, retro consoles, a club, that sells games, movies, swords, and toys. Waba has weekly tournaments on the weekends and FREE training days Mon-Thurs. Waba’s mission is to build a positive gaming community in GA that will impact the whole gaming nation. We believe gaming is a lifestyle, not just a hobby. The gaming culture lives in small pockets here and there in GA, but has not consolidated into a powerhouse yet. Besides ‘Final Round’, GA has very little to brag about in the gaming world. Waba humbly is attempting to change that. Hopefully all of you can contribute in the growth and support the tournament scene in our area. The gamers are what makes or breaks the community, so YOUR help is in need to bring the gaming culture to the surface of GA life.

For myself, I’ve been a gamer for over 30 years. I gave up teaching High School to pursue my gaming dreams. I’ve been doing this for over ten years. Eight years in Michigan and almost three years here in Duluth. I’ve been incredibly blessed with wife and kids who support my dreams even when I bring hardship to them. I am a gamer for life. I have many other interest, but gaming will always be a part of me. I want to share this passion with everybody who is willing to let me. If you are a gamer, I want to meet you, play you, hopefully beat you…but most of all have fun and grow together as a community.

  • At the beginning of a set, each player may strike 2 stages from the available 11. Of these, only 1 can be from the 4 Neutrals listed above. You may however choose to strike 2 counterpick stages.

  • 1st match, characters are chosen with double blind picks. After that, advanced slob picks- Loser of 1st match pick stages, the winner of the 1st match picks character, then loser of 1st match picks character. Continue this as necessary until the set reaches completion. Standard sets are best of 3, finals or semi-fianls are left to the discretion of the tournament host, although best of 5 is recommended for time constraints.

  • All forms of stalling are banned. Stalling- The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. This includes MK infinite cape, excessive edge stalling, or any form of stalling under the stage (DK spin, sonic charge B, snake infinite down B teching, etc).

  • Any suicide KOs on the final stock resulting in sudden death will result in a loss for the user of this tactic. If it would be a suicide KO and the match screen shows a decisive winner, go with that instead. A Bowsercide final KO results in a win for the Bowser player.

  • If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage. In the event of a sudden death, both players are to suicide IMMEDIATELY. No fighting with bombs @ 300. At the results screen, regardless of what the screen says, the player with the higher DAMAGE TAKEN is the loser. No exceptions. In the result of a tie, the match will be discarded and played over, same characters and stage. For teams, if this should ever happen, add the damage taken instead for both teams.

  • 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.
