ATTENTION SMASH PLAYERS

Our March tournaments are over, but April is just around the corner! We will have two Singles tournaments, April 13 and April 20. April 20th, we will be doing another fundraiser for American Cancer Society. Proceeds from the Venue Fee will be going toward ACS, but we are also taking donations if you wish to make them. Please spread the word! You do not have to be a participant to donate. :)

Registration for Walk-In players on the Waitlist will begin at 2:50PM. Tournament will begin at 3:00PM.

----------------------------------------

- We highly encourage pre-registering over the phone. Please call 201-267-6332 to pre-register. There’s no charge for pre-registering.=
- Our maximum player count will be 36 due to safety and security reasons.

- Those who pre-register are expected to arrive by 2:50PM at the latest. If you do not arrive on time your pre-registration will be cancelled and your spot will be given to another player.
- Waitlist: Those who pre-registered will be given priority at sign-ups. However, we will have a waitlist ready for Walk-In players who choose to stay and try his/her luck of getting into the tournament. Should any spots open up due to pre-registered players being tardy, we will begin open registration for those on the waitlist.

- Settings & policies are subject to change at managerial discretion.

Venue/Entry Information:
$5 Venue Fee, $5 Entry Fee (Entry Fee will be put into the prizing pool!).
$2 Discount to Venue Fee if we may use your Adapter, Switch, and/or game! $5 discount if it is a full set up!

Prizes:
1st Place: 60% of Entry Fees

2nd Place: 25% of Entry Fees
3rd Place: 15% of Entry Fees

Controller Information:
GameCube controllers will be available to rent for an additional $2. Limited quantity.

All controllers are permitted unless they produce an undue advantage compared to an original Switch or GameCube controller (such as an AutoFire button). If you are unsure please speak to a Tournament Official. This rule also applies to other peripherals. Tournament officials will check controllers at sign up.

We highly suggest that all wireless pro controllers have USB cables to expedite the syncing process and to make sure they maintain battery.

We also highly suggest that players use wired controllers so transition between matches moves more smoothly. If you drop out please make sure your controller does not cause any interference. This means not pressing a single button during someone else’s match.

Players are expected to come with fully charged controllers if they are wireless. You can charge your controllers on the Switches but please note that you would be fully liable for them.

Rules/Settings In-Game:
Sets will be Best of 3 battles, with Loser’s, Winner’s, and Grand Finals all being Best of 5 (We may forgo Best of 5 for Winner’s and Loser’s sets if time constraints do not allow them)
Remember that this is double elimination - you will be dropped out of the tournament if you lose 2 sets!
In-game ruleset:
Stock: 3 Lives
Time: 7 minutes
Pause will be disabled.
Score Display: On
Final Smash Meter: Off
Items: Banned

Additional Rules:
Mii Fighters & DLC:
Mii Fighters are allowed in all variations. Players that make Mii Fighters have a maximum of 2 minutes to create their movesets and cannot change those movesets in between matches. The reason for this is not to waste time on creating multiple movepools. This rule may change in the future. DLC fighters are legal unless they only been out for a week or less.

Coaching:
Coaching is not permitted during a set/match. Cheering is perfectly fine!
1st violation: Verbal warning to both player and coach
2nd violation: Player receiving the coaching advice will receive game loss. Coach will be excused from venue.
3rd violation: Player is disqualified from event.

Sudden Death:
If a game goes to Sudden Death, the winner is determined by stocks and percentage at the time the game ends. If both players are tied in stocks, the player with the lower percentage is the winner. In the event of a percentage tie, or a game in which both players lose their last stock simultaneously, a 1-stock tiebreaker will be played with a 3-minute time limit.

Tardiness:
If you are 5 minutes late for your set you will receive an automatic disqualification.

Collusion:
Collusion is cheating. Players suspected of collusion will be disqualified from the tournament and possible future tournaments, as well as receive no refund and no payout from the event. This includes intentionally throwing a game, pot splitting, or committing any form of bracket manipulation.

Gentlemen Agreements:
No gentlemen agreements allowed. Players must adhere to tournament rules. If players are unsure on a rule interpretation, they are responsible for asking a Tournament Official for clarification. If players are playing a match that are not in accordance to the venue's rules, both players are subject to a game loss and/or disqualification.

Spirit of the Game/Player Behavior:
Players must abide by the Spirit of the Game (no pun intended). Players are expected to show good sportsmanship to other competitors. We do not wish to ever to make this an unwelcome venue to any player!

Players are expected to adhere to our venue and tournament rules. If a player behaves in a manner that is deemed detrimental or disrespectful to our community or staff, that player will be excused from the venue and in some instances, banned from our venue. This includes but not limited to yelling/fighting with other players or Tournament Officials, coming to the venue visibly intoxicated or otherwise under the influence, intentionally damaging store or customer property, etc.

Final Rules:
Tournament Officials reserve the right to adjust and enforce tournament rules at their own discretion or to enact others during the event. If any violation of our rules is deemed intentional/deliberate or severe, or if we see any form of other types of cheating, we will require offending player(s) to leave venue without refund and no payout. Any disqualification, no matter the severity, will mean no refund and no payout.

Players must stage strike! Players play a best-of-1 Rock-Paper-Scissors, and winner may choose to either strike first or strike second.

Stages are stuck in a P1-P2-P2-P1 order. Players may strike from the legal starter stages (each person strikes stages in a P1-P2-P2-P1 format) to determine the stage for the first game.
If Battlefield or Final Destination, a mutually-agreed upon variant from the above list can be used.

Omega/ variations of the stages are allowed when a player counterpicks either Battlefield or Final Destination respectively.

A player may not pick any stage they previously won on during the set.

Winner must ban one stage of their choosing.
