As some of you know, Nintendo has officially announced that they will shut down Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for the Wii and Nintendo DS. While this won't affect the Wii U and 3DS games, this does mean that many awesome games will no longer feature online play or leaderboards. Before that happens, I'm hosting two tournaments live for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, starting on Friday, March 14th at 2 p.m EST. Additional tournaments will be hosted on the following Saturday and Sunday, depending on my work schedule.
Rules and Instructions: Games will be single elimination. If you haven't already, add me into your Brawl friends roster, Steam friends list, and/or Skype contacts. When the day comes, you will enter into a Steam or Skype conference call and a brawl room with me and your opponent so that your match can be broadcasted with commentary. If you do not wish to have your voice on commentary, you are allowed to disable the microphone, but must maintain the call active. I will auto-suicide (unless I'm the opponent) with no interaction in the fight. You must disable items before entering the room. If an item is found, players must not interact with the object or face a warning, followed by disqualification. Early rounds will be a 2 stock, 5 minute fight with no items. Best 2 out of 3. First stage must be random. Subsequent fights are loser's choice. Semi-Finals will be 3 stock, best 2 of 3. Finals will be 3 stock, best 3 of 5.
Even if you do not wish to participate in the tournament itself, I do hope you will come and watch the event. Hope to see you all there.
