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. :)

- 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.

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.
- We highly suggest that all wireless controllers have USB cables.

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 due to time constraints)
- 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.
- Piranha Plant is legal for play.
- Coaching:
Coaching is not permitted during a set/match. Cheering is perfectly fine!
1st violation: Verbal warning.
2nd violation: Player receives game loss.
3rd violation: Both coach and player are 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:
- 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.

Spirit of the Game:
- 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!

Final Rules:
- Tournament Officials reserve the right to adjust 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.
