Next Smash tournament

#1

Post by Marilink » Sun Jun 23, 2019 8:39 am

I want to do something fun for our next Ultimate tourney. I also have a long-distance move coming up shortly and won’t be able to get things running on it for a few weeks.

So in the meantime, why don’t we pick what we’ll do for the next tournament? My two ideas...

DRAFT TOURNAMENT - Each individual game, you must pick a different character. Then, for the rest of the tournament, you may not use that character again. Think you’ll go to Grand Finals? You might want to consider using some of your worst characters in the early rounds and save your mains for the end!

REVERSE MAIN TOURNAMENT - Exactly what it sounds like—each player decides who their official Main is (which gets verified by the group), and then for the rest of the tournament, the two people playing each other will only be able to use their opponent’s main. Willing to go up to 2 mains, if people want.

Thoughts? Commentary? Other format suggestions? Toss them here.

I somehow took 2nd place in a match as Incineroar, who is literally less mobile than a potted plant & who I hate using, so I'm down for random characters. (And also more stage options yespleasethankyouverymuch.)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I don't think I have an active online subscription right now, but I'd totally buy one if we're actually going to do a silly tourney.

Reverse Main Tournament sounds good!

Though I'm nervous that I may not be as good at cyan Isabelle when it comes time to fight DZ.

Changed from Draft to Other because shenanigans as described by ian sounds like too much fun to pass up

That and I might actually win a match due to dumb luck :lol:

I'm voting for reverse main bc I might be able to win a round if everyone I play against is forced to be Mii Swordfighter

actually RU brings up a good point: what if two people with the same main meet in bracket?

Mirror match. Or, if we decide to do 2 mains, someone can maybe choose to counterpick with the secondary.

Does Draft Tournament mean we get to have draft beers?
