I'm hosting an online Smash Bros Tournament before Nintendo WFC goes down the crapper on May 20th, 2014.
The current proposed date is May 10th to May 17th (we can keep going until May 19th in theory). The proposed game is SSB Brawl with the Project M mod. You can voice your concerns by posting if these dates don't work for you or if you'd prefer another game (though you're strictly limited to Vanilla Brawl or Project M).
You don't necessarily need a Wii to play. Dolphin as of v4.0 or so has support for Nintendo WFC as evidenced by JoeTang and I playing online. I won't give instructions on how to do but you're free to look it up somewhere online.
- No stages with hazards
- No items
- 4 stock rounds
- 8 minute time limit
- Best 2 out of 3
- If a player disconnects, no loss is recorded unless the player decides to surrender the round
- If a player disconnects three times, they lose the match and are eliminated
- First stage pick will be a mutually agreed on neutral stage (FD, Battlefield, etc)
- Loser counter-picks a stage
These rules are also up for discussion.
There will be lag, it's kind of unavoidable and unfortunate and we can only hope future games by Nintendo have better netcode.
It's expected to be a bracket style tournament, with single elimination. Challonge will be used to make the brackets. If people prefer round robin then you could suggest that as well.
Prizes can probably be some SP Karma or something, iunno.
Anyway registration and discussion thread. To register just post your friend code and say you're joining.
