Weeklies Canceled


#22

Winner keeps character has always been the rule in like…every tournament for every game I’ve ever played. If you didn’t have that, you’d have people flip flopping around on what character to play all day. Or losing, counter picking ROB on luigi’s mansion, then switching back to something else after they win. The whole idea of counter picking doesn’t work without that rule >_<

To join the IRC channel, it’s pretty simple, here’s a step by step guide on the lazy man’s way to do it:

  1. Go to this website: http://www.efnet.org/
  2. In the nickname field, fill out whatever you want for your IRC name.
  3. In the channel, type #srkbrawltourney, or #srkbrawl if you want to join the regular brawl match making chat room / general discussion stuff.
  4. It should load and you’ll be in the chat room, ready to talk. Sometimes it takes a moment for the list of players to load on the right side, but don’t worry, everyone can see you and you can talk, even if you can’t see who’s in there.
  5. If you want to be in both rooms at once, typing /join #srkbrawl or whatever channel you want will open an alternate tab that you can flip to and monitor both channels.

I’ll go specify the character keeping stuff in the rules.

I’m down

God, I really do have horrible timing when it comes to everything. If this was today, I could make it, but tomorrow I have work and I’ll only be able to around an hour at best.

Oh well, I still haven’t gotten a new controller (though I hope to fix that today), so it’s for the best.


#25

I, once again, MAY be able to make it for Wednesday. Hazard Suit Olimar plans to kick asses.

I’ll follow those steps to join the IRC channel, but the whole “winner keeps character” thing is not a Smash tradition. We’ve already gone over this in the “Evo Brawl Rules Discussion” thread, and Smash uses the advance slob system. Winner picks their character first, then loser picks their character. This allows the winner to change their character, but the loser still gets to counter pick.

That’d work if we didn’t play online and could see who the other person was selecting. I mean, I don’t really care, we can do it either way, this one just seems simpler / makes more sense to me. It’s up to the community though.


#28

sign me up plz


#29

when does it start

nm, apparently I cannot read


#30

Not sure how far I’ll get, but sign me up.


#31

Turn out is looking pretty good for this so far. Hope to see you all tonight at 8. Shit’s gonna ROCK!


#32

Well it’s your tournament and I’ll play by your rules. So if I win I’ll keep my character. I’m about to go sign up for that IRC channel now, I keep putting it off but I really need to get working on it.


#33

So it’s at 5:00 for us on the West Coast? I may join this one.


#34

damn it, I cannot sign up to that IRC channel no matter how many times I try. I keeps giving messages saying I’m unable to connect to the server.


#35

Yeah, efnet didn’t work for me either during the first tournament.

Just download mIRC and connect from there. Much, much easier. Even with the trial version.


#36

I’m getting way to many headaches today. First I can’t sign up to that IRC channel to play in the tournament, now all three of my game systems are fucking up and won’t connect to my router. I’ll catch next weeks tournament.


#37

bean here

ggs to everyone who could make it. i try to play next week as well

p.s.
swoops you should change your name to stomps


#38

Yeah, GGs to everyone. Definitely trying this again next week.


#39

So how does everyone feel about the next one being items on? Any suggestions, complaints, etc etc?


#40

Items on is fine for me. I’ll just have to use someone besides Olimar. Curse his lack of glide-toss distance…


#41

First, I like to say good games to all who showed up on Wednesday night. I look forward to next week’s tournament. Now for the good stuff. I finally uploaded all my matches from Wednesday’s tournament. They can be found here:

This is also the place where I will be uploading future weekly tournament videos.
