Greetings from SONM, and welcome to our fifth Smash Wii U and 3DS singles tournament! This time we'd like you to join the fray! We're aiming to make this our first cross-forum tournament with you guys and GRcade!Post below to sign up; there is no cap. Feel free to invite friends, family, etc. Sign ups will end on Friday the 11th of September.
A date will be determined (see poll above) in which everyone in the tournament keeps free in order to complete all of their matches so that we can complete the tournament in a single day, nice and smoothly. So if you're planning on entering, please ensure you will be free for the day. This post will be updated when a date has been confirmed. Also, if you've got a bad connection, please don't sign up; lag really puts the legitimacy of match results into question. Of course, I can't exactly stop you from signing up, but basically, I'd rather not have to deal with any hassle or last minute re-arrangements, so it'd be much appreciated if you were not 'that guy'.For organising matches, and general hype talk, please go to this chat: http://sonmsupersaltysuite.chatango.com
This is where the action will be occurring on the day of the tournament (tbc), so please try to stay logged in as long as your matches last to ensure the tournament runs swiftly and smoothly.
To be as helpful as possible, I will try to stay active on the chat from now until the tournament ends, if you have any questions, etc.BRACKETS

Arena FeroxStage Selection Rules
Starter stage for the first round of a set. Strikes will be in 1-2-1 order. The player with the lower seed will strike first (Example: 14th seed vs 2nd seed. 14th seed strikes first). - For 3DS, strikes will be the same, but in 1-1-1 order, so higher seed will only strike 1 stage.
**higher seed strikes one stage and lower seed picks from the remaining 2 stages.
After the first round, the order of events is as follows: stage striking, winner chooses character, then loser chooses character. For stage striking, the winner strikes one stage, then the loser chooses any stage remaining from the list.
Dave's Stupid Rule is in place. A player may not pick any stage they previously won on during a set. This could be overridden by Gentleman's Clause.
Gentleman’s Clause (Any stage can be played on if both players agree).Other Rules
Custom moves banned
DLC characters legal
Mii Fighters legal - must have 1111 "default" specials.
The winner of Loser's Final must win 2 sets against the winner of Winner's Final in Grand Final to win the tournament.
In the case of sudden death, the player with more stock or lower percentage if the stock is equal wins.
SelfDestruct Moves: If a match ends with the successful use of a character’s selfdestruct move, the player that initiated the self destruct move wins the match regardless of what the results screen states. Selfdestruct moves include only Ganondorf’s SideB, King Dedede’s NeutralB, Wario’s NeutralB, and Kirby’s NeutralB.
If any issue arises during your matches, particularly if you think someone is breaking the rules, please let me know either in PM, in this topic, or preferably in the chat, asap. In the case of someone breaking the rules, it helps to have a replay if possible to back up your case. As the T.O. I will have a neutral stand in disputes and will not give favour to an individual, but keep in mind I will not tolerate rudeness, and whatever decision I come to is final.
Thank you for taking the time to read the rules, and I hope you have a smashing day!
