POWER RANKINGS

In each game, players earn ranking points based on how they place in the bracket. There are three meets in Spring Series 2016, and points are dispersed as follows:

1st = 9pts

2nd = 8pts
3rd = 7pts
4th = 6pts
5th = 5pts
7th = 4pts
9th = 3pts
13th = 2pts
17th and Below = 1pt

The Top 4 point earners for a game will earn an invitation to compete in a Championship Round Robin for prizes and glory. If there is a tie in points for Top 4, then all the players who have earned the necessary points will earn an invitation to the Championship Round Robin.

Meet 1 of each series is randomly seeded, and then considerations are made for where players live, but only if those players have pre-registered. Meet 2 and Meet 3 begin using the power rankings to seed players in the bracket, but again, players must pre-register to take advantage of this seeding. Considerations are still made for where players live, but ranking points are more important. Players who have no ranking points, and join mid-series, receive a bottom seed and are inserted into the bracket where they fit. Considerations are made for where players live, but again the ranking points are more important.

PRE-REGISTRATION

Pre-registration is available at no cost on Smash.gg

We also take equipment donation reservations during pre-registration.

If you would like to be seeded in the brackets such that we take into consideration city / game team / and so on, then you MUST pre-register. In-person registrants will be randomly seeded into the bracket(s) with no consideration for city / game team / and so on. 

If you would like for your earned ranking points to be used toward your placement in the bracket, then you also MUST pre-register. In-person registrants will be randomly seeded into the bracket(s) with no consideration for earned ranking points.

Failure to pay pre-registration fees upon arrival at the venue will disallow you from entering intended tournaments. This is to prevent excessive byes in the brackets.

These steps are being taken to ensure faster bracket creation and a smoother event. Thank you for your understanding.

RULES

All tournaments are double elimination.

Players will be required to remain within audible distance of their bracket runner once the tournament begins. Failure to arrive after a call will put the player on a 4-minute disqualification timer. Players disqualified this way may be sent to the loser’s bracket, and also eliminated from the event. Players who are disqualified are entitled to a refund of the entry fee, and also their venue fee if they choose to leave.

Blind picks are available upon player request of a tournament organizer.

You may request a coach, who must follow the PowerUp private coaching rules. The link to the PowerUp Ruleset is below.

Stages will always be randomly selected.

No fatalities on the big screen. The tournament will be up on a giant projector screen, in full view of children visiting Arcade Legacy. We do not want any parents bringing complaints to our generous venue. Brutalities are not wholly controllable, and therefore they can be displayed on the projector screen.
