The first tournament will have regular rules. This tournament is live and will be held on February 18th at 7PM EST
*Items are turned to Off and None
*Non-final sets are best of 3, finals sets are best of 5
*Resolving Ties: If percents are the same or both players die simultaneously, there will be a 1 stock, 3 minute, same characters, same stage rematch.
*DQ Rule: After a match has been called, if a player is 5 minutes late he will receive a warning. At 10 minutes late, he will be given a loss for the first game of the set. At 15 minutes late, he will be given a loss of the entire set.
*Wi-Fi Disconnection: If either player is disconnected at any moment during the match, resume the match at the same stock and percent.
*No substitutions are allowed for singles, doubles or crews
*Players have the right to save/record any tournament match if possible and have the right to upload said match.
*You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility, always check to make sure you're using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller functions, it must be agreed upon by both parties.
*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
*Regarding textures and other game hacks:
-Players may request that any texture, stage, or other hacks be disabled during a tournament set. If this is unable to be done, they may switch to a different setup if available.
-Is recommended players do not use intrusive texture and stage hacks.
-Players are not allowed to use any game altering hacks, such as no-tripping or model hacks. If someone is caught setting up a system they brought with such hacks enabled can face punishment at the TO's discretion.
*No use of Marth’s Grab Release Infinites against Ness.
*No use of King Dedede’s Standing Grab Infinites against Bowser, Donkey Kong, Luigi, Samus, and Mario.
* Meta Knight's Infinite Dimensional Cape Glitch is banned.
* If a game ends with Ganondorf/Bowser/Kirby/King Dedede using a 'cide move and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for Ganondorf/Bowser/Kirby/King Dedede.
* Stalling is banned.
Stalling: The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling, while using an infinite to run out the timer rather than to score a KO is. As such, any infinite chain-grabs, locks, etc. cannot exceed 300%. Or using Sonic's Neutral B repeatedly underneath the stage is.
*Any sign of cheating may result in a Forfeit of the Game, disqualification from the Event (Proof is needed)
*No player must grab the ledge more than 40 times in a game. If, and only if, the timer runs out and either player has exceeded the total ledge grabs, they lose the game, regardless of stocks and percents. If both players exceed the ledge-grab limit, then the usual time-out rules will apply.
*Stage-striking is completely and totally optional. If both players are okay with it, then do it.
*Your typical banning and CP'ing rules go here.
*MK is not banned here. I want this tourney to be just for funnn.
*This will be the first of a handful of live tourneys I plan on hosting before the site shuts down. Next one will probably take a place a couple of days after this, just so there's more opportunities.
I hope to see a lot of people in this tourney.
