SSB:M: Round Robin/SingleElim/bo3Finals

in terms of the Super Smash Brothers: Melee tournament it will be broken up into stages.

Terminology definitions:
A game will consist of stock lives and timelimits determined per stage of the tournament
A match will consist of a set amount of games determined per stage of the tournament

If you are not present for the beginning of a match you will forfeit the tournament; we will not wait for you, this is why we have a schedule

We will only accomodate up to 48 entrants


Stage 1: Round Robin

The pool of entrants will be divided into Groups of 6. Each group of 6 will play a Round Robin series against those in the group. Only one group will play at a time. There will be no breaks during this Stage if you are in the middle of completing your Round Robin series. We will have a general 10 minute break after this Stage.

In the event that there is a pool of players that is not easily divisible by 6, the following will happen:
-If the remainder is 3 or more, they will form a group and play out a Round Robin series
-If the remainder is 2 or less, we will award two players a buy into Stage 2 at the discretion of Tournament Administration

In this stage a match will consist of 1 game. A game will consist of 3 stock lives and a 5 minute timelimit. The map is negotiated between the two players at game creation time, if there is a dispute a Tournament Administrator will pick a map at random.

The top two people from each group will advance to Stage 2.

There will be a 10 minute break before Stage 2 starts.


Stage 2: Single Elimination

The entrants for this stage will be slotted into a Single Elimination bracket. We ask that players avoid taking breaks at this stage as there will be another 10 minute break after this stage.

In this stage a match will consist of 1 game. A game will consist of 4 stock lives and an 8 minute timelimit. The map is negotiated between the two players at game creation time.

The bracket will proceed until two entrants remain. These entrants will proceed to Stage 3.

Semi-finals will then be played out by the losing opponents of the last two games. The match will consist of 1 game. The game will consist of 4 stock lives and an 8 minute timelimit. The map is negotiated between the two players at game creation time.

Once semi-finals complete there will be a 10 minute break before Stage 3 starts.


Stage 3: Finals

In this stage a match will consist of a bo3 games (Best of 3 series of games). A game will consist of 4 stock lives and an 8 minute timelimit.

The first map will be negotiated between the two players at game creation, however each following map will be selected by the loser of the previous game.
