VGF Inaugural Smash Ultimate Tourney

Post by Marilink » Wed Dec 26, 2018 3:27 pm

Hey everyone! Who’s in?

I’ve still gotta figure out what a stage list and rules for this would look like, but in the meantime, let’s get signed up. I’ll give y’all until Saturday the 30th to join, and then kick off the tourney on the first of the Year.

Btw, I’d highly recommend that everyone get one of these Ethernet to USB adaptors so we can just all have a much better time playing against each other.


Sound off!

6. RU

8. IRHP

^it’s ok, the matches are self-scheduled, so that’s just between you and your opponent.

The stakes are low, my man (in fact they’re non-existent)

I'm in like a. . .

Like a something. Some witty analogy that I can't think of right now.

But I'm in.

Nah, it's just that I don't even have a Lan adapter for my Switch yet and I don't want to be a Wi-Fi Warrior.

Let me see about that adapter, I don't want to screw this up for you guys by using WiFi. I didn't know that even existed.

All right! Let's do this. @HarkZero @CaptHayfever @Calamity Panfan @@I REALLY HATE PRESENTS! @Christmas PDN @MeowMan @ScottyMcGee

HOW THIS WILL WORK
I'm going to say that we should all use Discord to coordinate our matches. If you want to coordinate things with your opponent in some other way, it's up to you to figure that out. Join the VGF server (https://discord.gg/pbSDTAZ) and use the Smash channel to coordinate things. You can use this thread to set up a time, but please use Discord for stage striking, conversing, etc.

RULES
Stock: 3
Time limit: 7 minutes
Hazards: Off
Best of 5 (first to 3 wins)
Double elimination
Tournament begins on January 1, 2019

STAGES
Starter stages: Battlefield, Final Destination, Smashville, Kalos League, Pokemon Stadium 2
Counterpick stages: All starters, + Yoshi's Story and Yoshi's Island

PROCEDURE
Game 1: Higher seed bans 1 stage. Opponent bans 2 stages. Higher seed picks from the two remaining stages.
Games 2-5: Winner bans 2 stages from starters and counterpicks. Loser picks from all remaining stages.
Winner picks character first. Loser picks character second.

REPORTING
Tag me in this thread when you win a set. Include the winner and set count.

Here's the bracket. I did the seeding by myself, and I think it's fair? But if you've got an issue with it, let me know before we get started. https://challonge.com/VGFUltimate1

A couple more notes:

-Try to save replays, and if you’re able, upload them to YouTube for us to see! (This isn’t as easy to do as it was on Wii U, unfortunately)
-If you’re on Discord when someone is setting up a match, ask if you can enter the arena and sit on the spectator benches! If your connection causes lag, though, do bow out.
