I've been threatening to host another tournament for a while, and Brawl's pretty awesome. Do I need to say more?

For my MKDS tournament, I had players compete round robin style with arbitrarily imposed requirements; each match that a player won would earn them points, and at the end of each round the low scorer would get eliminated. I still gave eliminated players a chance to influence the course of the tournament. I'm doing the same thing here, but as Brawl is more conducive to customization, I intend to set even stranger constraints. For one round, I might require that players can only choose two moves to use; in another, I could set all explosives to high. Basically: the point of this tournament is not to provide an objective measure of each player's relative skills. The point of this tournament is to have fun. It's not No items, Fox only, Final Destination...except when it is. Before you sign up, know what you're getting into; I don't want to hear complaints about how you only got screwed because of luck. For anyone who really wants to win that's missing the purpose of this tournament, I suggest practicing with many different characters and learning the subtleties of item play.

Rules
1) Play under the conditions described in my posts.
2) Report results in this thread in a clear format; "sdfsdfhksdfh defeats ewriwuerhiwehr 2-1", not "dslkfhksdjhgfkhsdfkshdkfhsdkjfhkjhhkh aiuowiueouqwoieuqoiwueoqwueqwoue 2-1". Disputes will be handled on a case by case basis, if I don't like you the other person will probably get the win.
3) Don't disconnect in the middle of a match, no matter how bad the lag is, or how cheap your opponent is playing. Lag is fun, and so is getting swamped by a tactic you can't counter.
4) At the end of every round, the player with the least amount of points is eliminated...sometimes! Maybe someone will get mashed in a head-to-head challenge and their points will be worth nothing. Maybe some other time, a few suckers get taken to the gibit at once to speed everything up. Maybe one day, the top Ike player impales himself on a sword by mistake, and then he's gone. Maybe you've got a reeaaaaaaly embarassing replay of a death that should be grounds for the leader's disqualification. But mostly, just by losing a lot.
5) All participants are obligated to have fun.

To join, post your Brawl code and name. Depending on the number of entrants, I may establish pools of players to streamline things. Registration ends...next week sometime? I'll know when to cut this off.

I hereby refuse to join this tournament because of the following statement:

"Lag is fun"

That, and while I own the game, I don't have a Wii...

Also, a kudos to the first person who PMs me the answer...  what game is this line from?
"Good Luck... You'll need it!"

Lag certainly isn't fun and this tournament sounds a bit on the lol side, but I'll give it a shot. It's nice to be different and "innovative" but don't fix what isn't particularly broken, especially when we haven't built anything yet. :O

Blah, I realized that nicknames only allow 5 characters... :x

actually I find it great because its not like a lot of people here even play brawl either that much as others or are even as great as others. 

to me, this evens things out as it will give anyone a chance to move on and such and just have fun with it.  lag does suck, but what are you going to do about it?

if you do want some serious matches...play genus or myself >_>

bertin  "Sylux" 1418-6570-4856

Hopefully I can somehow stay in this even though I will have to use my friends router.

EDIT: do we have to use 1 character for the whole tourney or can we change?

Of course lag sucks, though I've had some hilarious things happen in lag. I remember one especially awesome moment when I used my fs as DDD, it froze on a closeup of his face while he was whistling, the music clip for his fs ran up, and there was a good 30 seconds of no music before a lagburst.

Also, for some challenges I may force people to use certain characters. I dunno though, it depends on my mood.

Finally, Ness does own.

It's Mike's fault for telling me to revive this topic. Mike threatened to chainsaw my left pinky if I didn't try to get this running again, which is excessive because I would have done so with slight prodding. I must also criticize Mike's glaring specificity in describing his method with grandiose minutia, leaving no abstruse horrors for the imaginative nebbish to infer in their beady interpretations of temporal applicability and practicality. Though of course, I'm of sufficiently steely make that these vague overtures of probable future sufferings instead resonate as wretched rhapsodies of crude mediocrity from habitually banal banals.

Who's interested in playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl?
