Description

It's time for our second annual video game tournament! Both a competitive gaming event with a minimum $2,000 prize pool and a fundraiser for the nonprofit  EnCircle Technologiesthis exciting Super Smash Brothers Melee tournament needs your play! At the Epic EnCircle Tournament there will be two contests for competitive play where they can battle in a 1v1 or 2v2 style competition. Each event will have a guaranteed minimum $500 prize.

This year we're also offering a "casual" tournament for non-competitive players.  If you don't regularly play in Smash Bros tournaments, this is the bracket for you.  A smaller winner-take-all prize of $100 goes to the victor of this singles only tournament.  Players in competitive brackets will not be eligible to enter this bracket. 

Join us in supporting autism while also playing your favorite game, Super Smash Brothers on October 15th!

Registration goes from 9 to 10. Games begin at 10:15!

All participants will need to bring Gamecube controllers. If you bring a Gamecube and Super Smash Brothers Melee game then you will receive $5 off on their venue fee.

Singles passes will be upcharged an additional $5 that go towards venue fees (this will count as your venue pass). We will be checking venue passes at the door, so be sure to purchase your venue pass if you plan on competing!

ADDITIONAL RULES

Stage Bans: In the first round, the player with priority will ban one stage first and then the second player will ban two stages. The player with priority will then pick the first stage from the remaining starters.  After each round, the winner will ban one stage from the entire list and then the loser will pick the next stage.

SET PROCEDURE
  1. At the start of the first round; both players select their characters. At this point, either player may call a TO for a double-blind pick.             
  2. After characters are decided, both players’ play rock-paper-scissors. The winner decides who will gain ‘priority’.  The one with ‘priority’ will ban first
  3. Players take turns banning stages from the list of ‘starters’ until one is left. Then players will play on the remaining stage.*
  4. After a round is finished, the bans reset, and the winner of the previous round bans stages from the entire stagelist (starters + counters). The loser then chooses the next stage. The loser cannot pick a stage that he/she has won on in a previous round, unless both players agree to it*
  5. Before starting the next round, the Winner of the previous round may change his/her character.  Then, the loser may change his/her character and the next round begins.
  6. Steps 4-5 repeat themselves until one player wins two rounds.
