Post Date: 01/08/09 @ 10:09AM Topic: Official SSBB Rules

-The following rules will be used at the February 7th, 2009 event.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Double Elimination Tournament Rules
Settings
1 v 1
Timed stock. 6 min, 3 stock
No items or smash ball.
Final round will be 2 of 3

Map
As default, maps are picked at random from neutral list for each match, unless both players agree to pick a different map. Then that map will be played for that match.
In the final round, the first map will be picked at random from neutral list. The next map pick will be based on Dave's stupid rule. Which means the loser of the first match can pick a map from the neutral or counter pick list. If the 3rd round is played, the player who won the first match can not pick the same stage that they have won on a second time.

Notable Rules

Meta-knight's infinite cape glitch is banned; any attempt at during a tournament match will be Auto-disqualification. That includes between stocks.

A game ending in a "Suicide kill" will go to the player doing the suicide move, in example "Bowser's flying slam off the stage." This rule comes into play when the game goes into a sudden death match, instead of ending the match. Ex. Using Bowser's flying slam off the stage, but the game goes into a sudden death. The sudden death will be ignored and Bowser is made winner.

The Act of stalling is banned, doing such will entitle disqualification. Stalling is defined as any action that deliberately avoids all conflict as to make the game unplayable. It involves the player using a move or technique to waste time, such as; using Sonic's homing attack under a stage, using Jigglypuff's rising pound under stage or an area that can not be reached, and Chain grabbing against a wall or edge infinitely where the player is not able to recover.
PLANKING is banned, it counts as stalling. Hanging onto a ledge is not banned. Holding your ground for a little bit in order to play better in the next few seconds counts as minor stalling, which is okay.

There is a 2 minute recess between each set of matches. You are responsible for being on time. Failing to arrive on time will count as one loss; the second time will be disqualification by default.

Bracket Seeding
Please in your account information make sure you have the city and state correct. The city and state is needed to seed the bracket correctly, ( It's location based seeding) Thank you

Equipment

If at any moment during the match a controller or system malfunctions, please place your controller in your lap and call for a director to inform them about the problem. The match will be re-started at the closest settings. Example, The same map and characters must be picked and the number of stocks per player must match the number of stock before the equipment malfunction. This may mean a player must Suicide to match the number of remaining stock before the restart.

If you chose to bring your own controller please note that your are responsible for it, and in no way is CGS and its staff are liable for lost, stolen, or damaged controllers or any other personal belongings.
Turbo or modded controllers are not allowed. Nintendo brand controllers are recommended.
If you have a wireless wii controller please keep them off while in the waiting room so they do not interfere with the wii's in the tournament room.

Policy

All Tournament rules are to be followed, and will be enforced.
Warnings may be issued for actions that are close to breaking a rule, up to 2 warnings will be use, after that it will be Auto- Disqualification.
No in game coaches are allowed to accompany players in the tournament.
Excessive vulgar behavior and, or language will not be tolerated. If such an event occurs you will be asked to stop, then disqualified and then to leave. (really don't talk like a sailor -_-)
Acts of violence will not be tolerated; if such an event occurs law enforcement will be notified.
Neutral Random Stages
Final Destination
Battle Field
Smashville
Yoshi's Island
Counter Pick Stages
Pokémon Stadium: Melee

Also, Can we bring our own gamecube controllers? Because some of your buttons on yours might stick or something.. or are we forced to use controllers provided?

You can bring your own Gamecube controller. Just don't use a modded controller, or a Madcatz. I'm pretty sure Wavebird is out of the question too. I'll check up on the specifics as soon as possible. But if you have just a normal Gamecube controller, that's fine.

How does the team thing work?

1) Do the teams just mean we have someone else throughout the tournament, but we share a spot? As in, not fighting at the same time (like 2v2) but sharing a character and a spot in the tournament? Or do we do 2 v 2 matches and people who don't have partner will not be fighting those who do?

2) How many people per team (assuming we are not doing any 2 v 2 matches)?

3) If we do have 2 v 2 matches, then when the team loses do BOTH people on the team get to choose a new character or stage? Or is it like only one person on the team can change characters or stage and then the other person cannot?

Please reply soon.

This tournament sounds like a lot of fun. I've never been to a tournament so it should be a great time. Does anyone have any pictures they can post for what the tournament setting will look like? For example, a picture of the TVs, chairs, etc.

Not sure, but its going to be two rooms, 1 a waiting/Melee free play room, and 2 being the tournament room with brawl, which random matches will be recorded and posted. ^_^

but tell me how are the rules, ever since I posted V3 I haven't got much feedback from any where, even smashboards.

For now only Melee because all wiis are being used in the brawl tournament. But yes it will be fun. There was over 80 players last year and I'm hoping to max out this year ^_^

One room will be the waiting room with Melee Free play, and the other room will be tournament only, and no one but people who are playing and directors will be allowed in.
