S.O.S Gamers and Polytech present Gaming Charitably: A Fundraiser for the March of Dimes Foundation.

March of Dimes Foundation Website
http://www.MarchOfDimes.com

Hey everyone. It’s your neighborhood smasher Wes. I would like to announce to everyone that a few members from Deadly Alliance got together and formed a Not-for-Profit Organization called "S.O.S Gamers". S.O.S Gamers consists of 5 members that came from Deadly Alliance (Kubuu, Wes, Rafa, Compton and Cavaisa).
What we do is host video gaming charity events such as this one that I’m about to present to you and the proceeds from the event go to the charitable cause of our selection. For this event, we have selected the March of Dimes Foundation. The March of Dimes Foundation is an organization dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We will do our best to inform everyone about their mission and the success that their organization has experienced.

It is our goal to make this event unlike any other video gaming event any of you have ever attended. So now, I present to everyone the details of the event:

Casual Play Area
• While many of us are all-stars at the games that we play, there are many people who are just getting into gaming or might be curious about games and would want to know more. As such, we will have areas dedicated to casual play, so that individuals can enjoy learning these games at a relaxing pace.

Top 3 Prize Description

Brawl rules

3 stock

8 minute timer

Items are set to 'off' and 'none'

All sets are best of three, except winners finals, losers finals, and grand
finals sets, which are best of 5

Controller ports are decided by coin flip, both parties should inspect the
coin before the flip takes place.

No player may choose a stage they have already won on in that set unless
agreed upon.

In team matches, the ports will be determined in a 1221 fashion; whoever wins
the coin flip will choose first, then the opposing team will get their ports,
and then the teammate of the coin flip winner will get the last port.

If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by
percentage.

Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned. That means this can't even be
used to avoid invincibility at the beginning of the stock (to avoid
confusion).

DDD's standing chaingrabs are banned. DDD MUST do a dash inbetween chaingrabs, thus no walking/nudging chaingrabs are allowed either. DDD's are allowed to chaingrab against a wall, as all walled stages that are on have
only temporary walls.

You are responsible for your own controller and name tag. Any malfunctions or
errors that occur are your responsibility, so bring an extra controller if
possible and always check to make sure you're using the correct settings
BEFORE a match is played. If a match is to be restarted due to controller
functions, it must be agreed upon by both parties.

Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing,
disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that
match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for
knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering
one of these effects.

Stalling is banned, which is defined by: The act of deliberately avoiding any
and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from
an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling, while doing an
infinite grab endlessly against a wall is. Any infinite chain grabs most end
quickly after 300% has been reached so as to prevent excessive stalling. NO PLAYER MAY PLANK THE EDGE (stall on the edge with a lead for longer than 10 seconds). If there is a question of this happening, the match is allowed to be paused so a judge can be called over to watch the remainder of the match.

Ledge grabbing rules: Each player/Team is allowed up to 50 ledge grabs a match if the player/Team exceeds 50 ledge grabs whether the time runs out or not they lose the match.

Beginning of the set:
1. Opponents choose their characters for the first match *
2. Opponents start the stage striking procedure. This will be where
a coin is flipped to see who strikes first. Then each player will alternate striking a
stage until there is 1 left. That stage is played first round. THERE IS NO RANDOM
UNLESS AGREED UPON.
3. Each player may announce one stage to be banned for counterpicks of the
set
4. The first game is played, using the stage chosen during step 2
5. The loser of the previous match announces the next match's stage from
either the Starter Stage List or the Counter Stage List
6. The winner of the previous match chooses their character
7. The loser of the previous match chooses their character
8. Repeat steps 5-7 for all proceeding matches
*Double blind character selection may be called for the first match

Stages:

Starter

Battlefield
Final Destination
Smashville
Yoshi's Island
Lylat Cruise

Counterpick

Castle Siege
Delfino Plaza
Halberd
Pokemon Stadium 1
Brinstar
Frigate Orpheon
Rainbow Cruise


Suicide Rules:

If kirby,ganon,wario,ddd are able to end a match in a tie due to their
suicide moves, the sudden death is ignored, and the players play 1 stock
matches. If bowser suicides someone off the stage, the match is awarded to
bowser (due to conflicting controller port issues).

The Mages DQ rule: After a match has been called, if a player is two minutes
late he will receive a warning. At 4 minutes late, he will be given a loss
for the first game of the set. After six minutes, he will be given a loss of
the entire set.

Color Blind rule: Should a player have a color-based disability, he or she
may request in a teams match to have a specific color for their team. This is
so characters such as Lucario or Sonic can be granted the blue team so that
there is not unnecessary confusion.

Wiimotes and Classic Controller users should know to take the batteries out
of their controllers after finishing a set; not only will this save battery
life, but it prevents accidental interference and delay for tournament
matches (please, if at all possible, avoid using these during the
tournament).

Stage Striking will be in effect for the first match of the set. The player with the lower port will get to choose the first strike. Loser chooses ban before next match.


One ban, per player, per set. To be chosen after loss.

Modified DSR: You cannot go back to the last stage you won in a set, unless agreed upon by the other player.


The player choice clause!: If both players agree to a rule outside of my ruleset, feel free to play by that. If one player wants to counterpick Mute City and the other player is fine with that because they think it's a fair stage, then that is more than fine. However in the event the two players disagree, house rules stand.
