All Stars Unite Once Again! It's been over a month since the patch changed the meta, AND Smash 4 is on its way. Now is the time for new Stars to rise!


The event will be held on June 7, 2014, in A&C World on 702a Spadina Avenue Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The nearest main intersection is Bloor and Spadina, and it is a five minute walk away from the Spadina subway Station.

-         PlayStatiob All Stars Battle Royale Doubles (2 vs. 2)

-         Super Smash Brothers Brawl ( 2 vs. 2 Balanced Doubles) (Balanced doubles means the tournament organizer creates the teams so that they are theoretically balanced, giving all entrants a chance at victory. So if player A has never played Super Smash Bros before, they will be pairred up with an extremely knowledgable and skilled Smash player.)

I am going to be VERY strict with timing during this event. Setups and patches will be ready before the event even begins (I'm setting it all up prior to June 7) Thus I will focus on registration ASAP. Meaning you must come between 2pm and 2:30, and if you come after 2:30, don't expect to be entered in any event.

 

General Gameplay Rules

1. Stock Mode: 3 Lives

2. Items set to "None"

3. Map Hazards set to "Off" in PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale

4. Please do not use any game breaking glitches. Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e.., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that game for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects. A few of these glitches include:

 

Modified Rules for PlayStation All Stars Doubles

Kill Limit mode: 6 Kills

Set Procedure for Singles and Doubles 

1. Each Team selects one character for each Player. A double blind pick may be called by any player.

2. The first game is played on a Stage selected from the Starter Stage List either by mutual consent or through the Stage Striking Method. The order of stage striking will be 1-2-1 (Team 1 strikes one stage, followed by Team 2 striking two stages, with Team 1 then striking one of the two remaining stages).

3. The first match is played.

4. In singles, the player that won the previous match may announce One "Stage Bans" if they have not already done so in this set. Otherwise they may change their bans.

5. The Team that lost the previous match announces the stage for the next match from either the Starter or the Counterpick Stage List. Any Stage named as a "Stage Ban" by the either Team may not be selected. No Stage may be used by a Team that has already won on that Stage in this set.

6. The Team that won the previous match chooses one character for each Player.

7. The Team that lost the previous match chooses one character for each Player.

8. The next match is played.

9. Repeat steps 4-8 for all proceeding matches.

Conduct Rules 

1. BYOC and USB Wire(Bring your own controller): Players are expected to bring their own controller and USB wire and be prepared for every tournament set. A USB wire (the one that normally charges your controller) is needed to connect your PS3 controller to a PS3. Please bring your own wire to save lots of time. I also advise putting a sticker or tape around your wire so as not to misplace it with the venue’s wires.

2. In the event pause is left on and is pressed, if required, immediately call over the TO. Based upon their judgment, the situation will be resolved.

3. Players who use the PS3 controller or fight stick must turn it off when not playing. If the PS3 controller or fight stick is still synced up to a PS3, you could unintentionally disrupt a match. If problems persist, a DQ may happen.

4. For the purposes of simplicity, please do not use a PlayStation Vita.

5. You are responsible for your own controller. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility (including battery issues with a PS3 controller), so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you're using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match has started and the game needs to be paused to adjust controls, pause to change controls ONLY if the opponent is not comboing, and you have alerted your opponent that you must pause. Both players must agree with each other when to unpause the game.

6. Intentional forfeiting, match fixing, and any other forms of bracket manipulation are not allowed and punishable by the TO.

7. No substitutions are allowed for singles or doubles.

8. DQ Rule: Arriving too late for a match will result in a DQ. Player(s) will have 10 minutes to show up before a loss of the set. For doubles, both players on a team need to be present in order to play.

9. The tournament organizer has the right to save/record any tournament match if possible and has the right to upload said match.

10. Disrupting your opponent physically or intending to disrupt their play (through something such as screaming in a player's ear) will result in a warning. Repeated action will result in disqualification from the tournament and possibly ejection from the venue. Observers who physically disrupt players are to be dealt with as the Tournament Organizer sees fit. Disqualification is recommended if possible, and ejection from the venue is also a punishment.

 

Food

A & C World sells water, Coke, Nestea, and Sprite for $1

We only have the venue for 6 hours. As a result, there is no excuse as to why you cannot eat lunch before the tournament rather than during. I WILL be disqualifying players if they are not able to play their match within 10 minutes of being announced. If you would like to grab a bite prior to the close of registration, here is a list of nearby restaurants:

-          Pizza Pizza: This place sells pizza. It is north of the venue at the main intersection of Spadina & Bloor.

-          Lick's: Excellent burgers next door of the venue. It also offers student discounts should you bring your student I.D.

-          If you walk south to Harbord st. There are a couple of independent restaurants.

-          Tim Hortons and Second Cup are at the same intersection as the Pizza Pizza.

-          Subway: South of the venue, down Spadina

 

Generally, all participants of events are ready to eat after the venue closes, and its always a great hangout with fellow players and new friends. Yet another reason why I encourage players to eat only before and after the event, and to not leave the venue during the event to get food.

 

Directions

The venue is just a five minute walk south of Spadina subway station. Keep in mind this is at A&C World and NOT A&C Games. They are 2 doors apart. Though I highly recommend you check out A&C Games to see there large stock of games and gaming accessories, the tournament itself is held in A&C World. Here is Google Maps:
