Official Unofficial Stabyourself.net Super Smash Bros. 4 3DS Tournament!

Just so we can have some community thing here or something let's have ourselves a good old Smash Bros Tournament.
Since the Wii U version's not out for a good month+ still, we'll be using the 3DS version.
It'll be basic 1v1 stock matches for Best 2 of 3 matches. The winner of the tournament will receive a $15 Steam game of their choice.
(I am entering as well, so in the very unlikely chance I win the tournament, 2nd place will take the prize)

Rules for Tournament in spoiler below
Stock Matches, 3 lives. Best 2 of 3 wins round
Choose 2 characters to use throught entire tournament. No switching ever.

-When you lose a match with one use the other. People didn't like this so use whoever whenever. Only use your two chosen characters still.
All characters allowed in tournament, including Miis
-Only 1 Mii per person
-Customized specials are allowed BUT chosen specials must be used throughout ENTIRE tournament. No switching ever.
-No equipment allowed (the fancy badges that alter stats)
Items set to OFF unless all players agree for them ON
-Only acception is the Smash Ball, which must remain ON
Stages set to Omega Forms unless players want normal forms
And the Tournament Bracket is below. Thumbnailed due to size. It will be updated as rounds are completed.


Each round will go on for about a week. It's up to you and your opponent to arrange and have your matches within that time.
Any not done will be disqualified unless you contact me ASAP for arrangments.
Almost all combatant 3DS friend codes are in the NNID/FC thread, click this entire sentence to head over there to get your opponent's code if you need it.

Feel free to ask any needed questions if you have any and let's have fun and stuff.

Entrants and chosen fighters listed below.

I've unlocked all of the villager's moves and I don't like them very much.
Except for the giant tree, but that's not as strategic to use.

Anyways:
Character 1: Villager that's high. (No custom moves)
Character 2: Kirby. (Custom moves undetermined as of now, when the tournament starts I'll tell them to you.) (This is because I haven't practiced much with Kirby.)

Few things:
Willware you need to pick a second character;
Cake and Pillow you better hurry with your decision making/move unlocking since I do plan on ending the signups Thursday.

Excerpt from the rules:

-When you lose a match with one use the other.
Mostly for that second part.

Character 2: Greninja: down b 2 (Exploding Attack), rest are standard

regarding custom characters, is equpiment allowed? I have an auto-healer brawn badge that I use that automatically heals my stamina every few seconds, but I'm wondering if you're prohibiting that sort of stuff.

I've only played the first week it was out... this'll be fun.
Character 1: Rosalina & Luma (Default)
Character 2: R.O.B. (Default)

"When you lose a match with one use the other." Why?
Can't we just decide which one of the two we use?

So do you have to always use your first character and once you lose, your second?
Or can you use your second, lose, an then use the first?

I like doing things in an elimination-style type thing. It makes it more interesting and keeps you from trouncing the same opponent twice or something. I dunno, it was a good idea at the time I was making the rules. If enough people don't like it I'll change it I guess.

But I'm not saying which one you have to start with, you can always start each round with either character. Just once you lose a match, use the other.

I think it would make more sense for the winner to switch, but that's just my opinion.

I feel you should add the link to the 3DS FC thread in the OP so people can add others as well as have people add their FCs there

Also, will we be playing on any stages? I feel the boards with too many or intrusive stage hazards should be banned from the tourney...

I can understand banning broken characters, and I get why people like turning items off, but why ban stages? I've yet to find any stages in any Smash game that negatively affect my performance (except maybe Magicant); in fact, I like to use them to my advantage. I get that there's a division of focus, but not only are some of the characters balanced around that, it also creates unique strategies.

EDIT: Having double-checked the rules, it's good that it's set to the lowest common denominator (omega forms), while still allowing all stages if the players agree on it.

Stages I had in mind were Balloon FIght, Find Mii, WarioWare Inc., Flat Zone 2, PictoChat 2, Unova Pokemon League, Golden Plains, and Paper Mario. Rainbow Road and any scrolling stages like 3D Land were the other ones I had in mind.

Not gonna ban any stages since, as Willware said, the rules have them all set to Omega unless both fighters agree on a normal stage.

Wouldn't ban them even if that was not the case.

I really need to start playing on normal stages again.
I focused too much on gaining skill to actually gain applied skill.

-I also don't really like the switching mechanic, but I'll go through with it.
I still need to experiment some with Kirby's moves- I haven't unlocked them all.
I will tell you by tomorrow.

Fair enough I suppose. I'd rather play omega stages anyway

We could always wait for one more...
Otherwise it would probably be very complex.

One way to lower it down to 8 semi-fairly:
You could assign each person a number, then use a random number generator to select 3 people. Those three would be set aside.
The remaining people would enter one of two battles. The battles would be either 1v1 or 2v2. The losing 4 would enter a free-for-all battle.
The winner of the FFA would rejoin the rest of them. This would leave 8 players in, with the three who lost the FFA being out of the tourney.
But that'd be very complex, and would probably take a long time. It'd probably be faster to just wait for one more person to join.

EDIT: Reverse-ninja'd! (The comment was deleted!)

Okay now we're good so Signups are done. Rather would deal with 12 than 11.

Tournament starts when I get a bracket up. Keep an eye out.

(Double posting for good cause.)
The Tournament Bracket is now made. You can see it in the first post. Round 1 is officially started.
From here on out each Round of the tournament will last for ONE WEEK or until all current matches have a victor. It will be up to you and your opponent to arrange your matches from here on out. If you do not have one within the week, you both will be disqualified. If you feel you will have issues arranging your matches in the timeframe contact me ASAP and we'll work things out.

A link to the NNID/FC thread is in the OP if you need each other's Friend Codes as well.

With this the Tournament shall commence. You have until about next Friday Night (Saturday for Europe/Austrailia Combatants).
Get Smashing.

Just so you know, me and cake are gonna have to wait till next weekend due to timezone. it's 2 PM Sunday right now and in his time, 11 PM. I get home from school at about 3 PM on weekdays, so I can't do it during the week. We'll have to figure out a suitable time for both of us.

I made a change to the rules. You no longer have to switch characters if you lose a fight. It's encouraged, but not required. Still only use the 2 you chose however.

Also since no one's posted any results yet I'm gonna leave the first round open for a few more days. If not enough matches are done still then I'll call this off. So yeah, if those who entered are still interested do your matches.

(Also, why didn't Luna or Idiot or any others post results here? Did anyone else battle?)

Edit:
So, Wilo's next against me.

(I didn't see the thumbnail actually had text on it before, and I assumed it to still be empty or something. I apologize for calling you out Idiot.)

I haven't posted a match result since I don't have a match until Will and Mindnomad fight due to how the bracket is laid out. This is the case for Jorichi, Wilo, and Turtle as well
Will/Mind haven't fought yet afaik, and TF/Xero haven't as well.

Oh and the Bracket's been updated to show the victories of the 2 matches that have been reported.

I'd say it's just the people chained/ahead of to Will and Luna that can't fight- so that the entire thing isn't delayed and most of the tournament can continue.
Or at least that's my call.

Even though the deadline didn't work, it was still a nice and fairly quick. With that let's get to Round 2.
To make it quick I'll list the current matches to be had:

-Idiot9.0 vs. Mindnomad
-Imaginary Cake vs. Wiloking
-Ultrasonic95 vs. Turtle95 (Battle for 95 supremacy!)
-Jorichi vs. TripleXero

Obviously deadlines didn't work so well last time so there won't be as large a gap. This time the round will end on Nov. 14. What I hope for is that the matches will all be done much sooner than that. Since it's so long there will not be any arrangements allowed, if it's not done by then you're both out. Get smashing.
