March 9, 2008 - The launch date of Wii's only breathing online multiplayer game. No, we're not referring to Rubber Band Kart Wii. We're talking about Super Smash Bros. Brawl! In celebration of Brawl's one-year anniversary, hero101 and evergoo have decided to revive CAG's interest by introducing to everyone our 5th Smash tournament called...

SUPER SMASH GIMMICK: BACK TO TRAINING

Posted Image


As the title states, this tournament will be very gimmicky...so gimmicky that you will probably wonder why the number 3 keeps reappearing!

General Rules
  • 3 player free-for-alls
  • 3 stock, no items, best-of-3 rounds
  • Each player bans 3 characters from their opponent's playable roster (Player A bans 3 characters from Player B, Player B bans 3 from Player C, & Player C bans 3 from Player A)
  • Each player must pick a new character for each of the 3 rounds. No repeat characters.
  • Each player selects a stage: Player A gets round 1, Player B round 2, Player C round 3.
  • Every stage is acceptable except for the following 6 (a multiple of 3 :-P):
    Spoiler
  • 75 m
  • New Pork City
  • Rumble Falls
  • Mushroomy Kingdom
  • Mute City
  • Hyrule Temple
Season Rules
  • Weekly deadline for matches will end on Sunday, 11:59 pm pst.
  • 3-game season
  • 3 divisions
  • Score will not be tallied by wins or losses but by round placements. 1st Place = 3 pts, 2nd Place = 2 pts, 3rd Place = 1 pt.
  • At the end of the season, top 3 in each division qualify for the post-season tournament
  • After each matchup, please immediately PM the results to hero101 using the following example format:
    Spoiler

Postseason Rules
  • 5 rounds total, same scoring system, 5th round is not tallied into final scores.
  • First 3 rounds involve bans (regular season rules).
  • 4th round, choose character of your choice. No character bans. Division leader chooses stage.
  • 5th round, forced character selection. Player A chooses Player B's character, Player B chooses Player C's, and Player C chooses Player A's. Stage doesn't matter.

Lastly, please remember that this is a super gimmicky tournament. That means let's not get our panties in a bunch whether we win or lose. Let's just have fun! :bouncy::bouncy::bouncy:

SMASH HEADLINES

First off, I would like to thank everyone for participating this season! :applause: I know the season was much shorter and more laxed, but I hope everyone had a good time and picked up on some new mains (I know I have). I want to especially thank the regulars who have joined CAG's numerous Smash tournaments. Without you, we wouldn't have a scene one year later. Last but not least, thank you Hero for taking care of the results and for your thoughtful input on various matters.

All these reflective comments, however, doesn't mean the season tournament is over. We still have postseason! Now that I have all that mushy stuff out of the way, let's get down to business on our 3-way triangle love affair between the Super Scopes, Virtual Boys, and E-Readers.

But before we begin, Hero and I would like to incorporate some new rules into the tournament to spice things up. We hope everyone has a kick out of it. :lol:

Postseason Rules

  • 5 rounds total, same scoring system, 5th round is not tallied into final scores.
  • First 3 rounds involve bans (regular season rules).
  • 4th round, choose character of your choice. No character bans. Division leader chooses stage.
  • 5th round, forced character selection. Player A chooses Player B's character, Player B chooses Player C's, and Player C chooses Player A's. Stage doesn't matter.

TOP 3 GAMES OF THE WEEK PREVIEW

Super Scope Championship: Undetermined The frontrunners are hero101, Rig, and suko_32. Foo228 and dyeknom still have a slim shot of making it further. The other divisions have fancy subtitles. What should this division's subtitle be called? Hero Suks Rig's? ;)

Virtual Boy Championship: Joe's Mad Goo!!! Because of Mr. 86420, the winners of the 2nd doubles tournament will finally face off as a triplet and show SHOW US YOUR MOVES why we're the better team. Goodbye Yoshi eggs, R.O.B. lasers, and Kirby swords. That still doesn't mean no
Spoiler
though. Viewers should expect some lengthy games in this matchup of percentage building.

E-Reader Championship: Texas Showdown Texas, the state known for guns, hot weather, and Bush. Evergoo has given up his chance for a rematch and let these 3 Texans duke it out in a Wild West shootout. Make sure to use guns please and don't forget to incorporate some Texas taunts for your audience. :twoguns:

SMASH Q & A


1. Are there any requirements to joining?

You must own the game and know how to tap buttons. Oh yeah, no flakers please. The season is only 3 games long!

2. Why the infatuation with the number 3?
Some time after the exhausting 1st CAG SSBB Season, I was interested in a tourney involving 3 players. We've done singles, doubles, but never free-for-alls competitively. Since I was interested in this idea, I thought I could take it one step further by making everything 3s. By the way, my favorite number is not 3 but 8. :-P

3. What's the point of banning characters and changing characters every round?
Short answer: to freshen up things.
Long answer: 1) give others hope that they can beat certain opponents; 2) remove staleness of matches; and 3) motivate players to explore new characters.

4. Why must we PM Hero our results versus posting them in the message board?
Anyone who has ever hosted a CAG Smash tourney knows that it is quite tedious to weed through several posts for results. We highly recommend you still post the results in this thread...just make sure Hero gets it, too.

5. What's up with the title for this tourney?
Gimmick Tournament + Training New Characters = Super Smash Gimmick: Back to Training. Hero wanted Super Smash Gimmick: Back to Training - Quest for the Magical Panties but I said no because we are not searching for panties in this Smash season...that's only in camera mode. ;)

6. Who did the ridiculously awesome logo?
All credits for the Smash character artwork goes to our very own Mad D. The Brawl snapshots were taken from brawlsnapshots.com, The nude muscular man was whipped up by Strell, and the Photoshop effort was done by me.

7. But I don't know who to ban for Player so-and-so! Dear oh dear, what shall I do?!
Ask any of the CAGs on this forum. We know how to gimp one another. Also, only one designated player may ban another player's characters (e.g. Player A must ban Player B and cannot do so for Player C). It would be wise to make sure that certain players do not get a chance to play their mains. Otherwise, you're in deep trouble.

8. How and when should I contact my opponents?
Via PM would be a good option. Please make sure to send out a PM to both your opponents as soon as possible in order to meet the weekly deadline. In your PM, make sure to mention the following 3 items: 1) your availability including days and times (time zone); 2) which characters will be banned for your specified opponent; and 3) your stage selection.

9. Do Squirtle/Ivysaur/Charizard, Samus/Zero Suit Samus, and Zelda/Shiek count as 1 or multiple character bans?
Each group of sub-characters counts as 1 character ban. So if you ban Zelda, you also ban Shiek.

I like that this will be short, but I've also been interested in a "quick" tournament. i.e. Someone sets up a chatroom for a specific date & time, and whoever shows up is in the tournament. I think that would help solve some of the long term issues. You could have several successive tournaments over a series of weekends.
