Expo 2015: Super Smash Bros. Tourney

SodaSoda IcrontianAnn Arbor, MI Icrontian

Aright ladies and gents, it's time to gather up and beat the living crap out of each other in a Super Smash Bros. Wii U Tournament! Nintendo did a pretty good job with the new Smash, improving on brawl by removing broken features as well as making the game generally faster paced and better balanced with more variety of everything, so it's just more fun.

Since we have no group stages or anything to determine seeds, we will be generating a double elimination bracket randomly, so that everyone has a chance to play even if they get matched up poorly early on. I'll be using settings mostly from the more modern tournaments specifically designed around the new smash version, as they do a pretty good job of avoiding a frustrating loss from one mistake, while still getting rounds done fairly quickly, as we do have time constraints this being Expo and all.

Game Settings: 2 Stock, 6 Minute Time Limit, Items Off, Equipment Off, Best of 3 (Best of 5 for semifinals/finals)
Stage: Random Omega Stage

For the first game of each match I'll have each player tell me their character separately so that neither player will know what the other is picking when picking theirs. After each game, the winner of the game will have the option to change their character, and the loser will then have the option after that.

We will have several Wiimotes and gamecube adapters/controllers, but if you want to use your own controller (including Wavebirds or Wii U Pro Controllers which we don't have), you are highly encouraged to bring it (especially because we don't have enough gamecube controllers for 8 players, so you may not get one for random pickup games throughout expo if you don't bring one).

I'll be doing a signup sheet at expo since smash is popular enough that lots of people that don't regularly check the forums may want to enter the tournament. If we have extra time we can consider a doubles tournament in a similar fashion, although this is pretty unlikely unless the participant pool is very small.

Feel free to post comments/questions/concerns.

    I have 2x Wavebirds that I plan on bringing. Do they need a special adapter to work with the Wii U?

  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian

    ICHQ has a GC adapter available, so as long as you bring the wireless dongers for them you're good.

    Diddy Kong was super duper nerfed in the last patch. HURRAY FOR OTHER CHARACTERS EXISTING AGAIN.

    Also will bring a second GC adapter for proper 8-player GameCube-enhanced mayhem during non-tourney hours.

    Me too! Although maybe not quite as graciously since I'll most certainly be some sort of intoxicated after that brewery crawl. BTW anyone want to watch my kid for that?

    Paging @TheRedburn although I think he was paged in another thread or is unavailable?

  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian

    He'll probably want to participate in the tournament. He plays smash

  • RyderRyder Icrontian Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian

    She is talking about the bike/brewery tour. She would like someone to watch her for that.

  • QCHQCH Ancient Guru Chicago Area - USA Icrontian

    In... I have a Wii U so this will be a CRASH course at learning the game before I get it for the kids.

  • BandrikBandrik Icrontian Elkhart, IN Icrontian

    Will the new DLC characters be included? Willing to pitch in cashbux to buy them if they aren't on the system yet.

  • SodaSoda Icrontian Ann Arbor, MI Icrontian

    I'll find out when I get to ICHQ later =P
