    "is He Dead though?" - Random commentator, after Meta Knight lands a dash attack at 0%

    INTRO
    Hello good people of MKBoards and welcome to the 2nd installment of the iHD Tournament Series and the first of the 2017 year. Like in the winter we'll be hosting another event and hope to get a decent turn out. We are starting to get a dedicated group of MK players who enjoy some casual smash tournaments online and our goal is to grow into a niche group for smash enthusiasts in our community. All are welcome to play! We hope you enter, even if you're on the fence or even new to the scene or the game. Maybe you'll surprise yourself, and maybe you'll be motivated to place higher at a future event.

    OUR GOAL

    Obviously we want to run a successful event, and what makes these events successful is simply the people who sign up. Tournaments can sometimes be hard to get to or far away, some people are shy, some others like smash but just don't think it's worth it enough to go out to find an event - online tournaments are easier however. Our goal is to hit at the very least 50 entrants in this event overall, though we'd like it to be even more if possible - so try to get some friends to sign up and play as many events as possible, even if you don't think you're the best at the game, we'd love to have you participate, since the more, the merrier.

    We are featuring crew battles for the first time at this event as well so we'd like to see lots of MK Clans here sign up for that event and the others hopefully as well. MKW / MK7 / MK8 clans are encouraged to sign up if they have potential squads wanting to play. If you just want to get some friends and play as a different team though, that's perfectly welcome too. If you have a community as well, feel free to sign up. The only requirement is that you aren't site banned.

    SIGNUPS

    Signing up will be pretty simple this time - just post on this thread and fill out the following prompt! Additionally, you may join our server on Discord posted below and post the information in #tournamentregistration. If you think you can play, it's better to register sooner rather than later. If something comes up, you can always cancel your entry.

    Common Alias:
    NNID:
    Signing Up For: (Singles, Doubles, Both)
    Doubles Partner: (N/A if just singles)
    Do you have WL this date? (Y/N)
    If so, when?
    Crew: (Team Name)
    Are you the Team Leader? (Y/N)
    If yes, list your team roster. (5 starters, up to 5 subs)

    CREW LEADERS: If you could contact me, it would be appreciated. You know your players better than I do, so I'd like you to come to me to help with seedings since they will be somewhat hard to work out on my own. Thanks!

    Depending on the success of this tournament, we will potentially move to smash.gg next month for brackets. Challonge will be used this time however.


    WL WEEK 10
    We are fully aware of Week 10 and can assure you that even though this will be an all day event, that singles will not conflict with WL in the slightest as long as you confirm in your sign up that you'll have it. Doubles may conflict, but only if your match is at 3PM.

    EVENTS, RULES, AND FORMAT

    SINGLES
    2 stock, 6 minutes
    Best of 3 Sets until Top 8
    Best of 5 Sets for Top 8
    Double Elimination

    DOUBLES
    3 stock, 8 minutes
    Best of 3 Sets until Top 8
    Best of 5 Sets for Top 8
    Team Attack is ON
    Double Elimination

    CREWS
    3 Stocks For Every Player
    5 Players May Play In Each Crew Battle, for 15 Stocks Total
    Up to 5 Substitutes for Each Team
    At the end of every game, the winner stays in the room. At the beginning of the next game, the winner must start with the same amount of stocks they ended with in the last game.
    No Timer To Be Set
    Double Elimination

    Notes:

    Singles and potentially doubles will have pools that start at different times. If a singles or crew match is being streamed, 1 minute must be added to the total amount of time on the game limit clock. Customs are banned in all formats. No items are to be used in any event. All events will be played on the Wii U version.

    The following stage rules will be used for all formats:

    Starters:

    Smashville
    Town and City
    Lylat Cruise
    Battlefield
    Final Destination

    Counterpicks:

    Dream Land

    For the first stage, the players must both strike 2 starter stages (in a 1-2-1 order). The nonstriked starter stage will be where the first match is played. Gentlemen's Agreements to Smashville are permitted. If someone doesn't have Smashville or Dream Land, they can pick random and it'll always pick the person who chose a stage. After the first match, the winner may ban one stage of the 6 (including Dream Land). The loser may pick any of the other 5 stages for the next match.

    In singles and doubles, Dave's Stupid Rule is ON. This means that you may not go back to a stage you already won on in the set unless your opponent allows it. In best of 5 format, you may pick a stage you've already won on as long as it's not the last stage you won on.


    STREAM

    We are planning on streaming a large amount of singles matches and crews. Stream links will be posted soon. We may potentially have two channels running as well. All of singles top 8 and crews top 4 will be streamed. The following stream will for sure have content during the tournament however:

    DISCORD

    It's highly recommended that you join our discord group to make things significantly easier. Is this isn't possible, send me a PM and we can try to take care of it. Join the group here: https://discord.gg/uwHUH8j

    Q&A
    Q: What's the maximum participant size?
    A: No participant cap for now - we'll have to plan based on how size is going though.

    Q: Who are GoMan & Wizard Guy?
    A: They're real life friends of mine who are going to help run the event with me and the rest of the staff.

    Q: Any more information? Schedule?
    A: Updates will be posted on the thread frequently, so make sure to keep watch.

    Q: Anyway I can help?
    A: We think we have organization things under control, but we could probably use some extra commentary for the stream. Though we want to welcome as many different types of players as possible for the tournament itself, we'd prefer someone with some decent experience with the game for commentary. Feel free to PM me on discord, and we'll let you know if we're interested.

    But before I start... What is a drought?

    A drought is a long period of dry weather when there is no rainfall for a large amount of time. Therefore it only happens in dry countries and the water supplies can start running out. This causes water to evaporate, clouds to disappear and later the ground to crumble and crack.

    What starts a drought?

    A drought then starts when the water dries up after very little rainfall and then people in the area will have to therefore use the water wisely. After they run out of water they already have, they will then try to find water all around before the water dries up everywhere for good, and because then the ground will only be dust and dirt.

    How a drought occurs?

    Some people believe that droughts can only happen in counties like Australia and Africa but the truth is that they can happen in lots of countries. If your country is always wet and rainy then a drought wouldn’t be likely to come, but if a country is dry and hot it could be quite common for a drought to occur any time soon.

    In some parts of Africa like Sudan, Mali and Ethiopia the amount of rain lessens from year to year and eventually there is a big chance of a drought occurring. There will be extremely hot weather for a long period of time and there will be a large lack of rainfall from day to day. Water dries up in a drought from lakes, rivers, reservoirs and wells. People must use their supplies wisely so that when a drought does occur then everyone will be prepared.

    Food supplies are destroyed when plants and crops shrivel and die when you don’t water the ground. Strong winds intend to blow away topsoil making it hard to grow new plants; animals and humans can die from dehydration and lack of water. Drought results in famine, disease and death on a large scale.

    Where a drought occurs?

    If you have back up water and a lot of water supplies then you will be safe from a drought occurring. A drought that’s in a hot and dry place could go on for decades, most droughts that are located in a hot area could last forever and the last year was no exception. Thousands of square miles were burned in wildfires and its impact could still linger in years to come. Australia has one of the biggest problems with droughts, anywhere it’s hot and dry there is an easy chance of getting a drought. Droughts occur very often in the southern areas because of the heat waves and the desserts, droughts can last until it rains. The shortest drought we’ve had was 6 months, another reason a drought occurs somewhere is because it is so dry that you cannot live there for more than two weeks. Droughts can happen anywhere, here are some places that they occur: Texas, California, Nevada, Australia, Mexico, and many other places. Places like Antarctica, North Pole, and Alaska are some locations you will most likely not see a drought occurring. Droughts are likely to kill people because of the dehydration it can do to your body, it causes your body to get dry and without water you will die. Water is typically one of the reasons you are living, water is and should be the most valuable thing in your life, so take care of what you got.

    Any Famous droughts?

    The deadliest drought was a devastating 150 years causing terrifying deaths. The Sahara desert is one of the hottest and driest places on earth; therefore it will be one of the obvious places a drought could definitely occur. About 3000 years ago, the heavy rain stopped and the land began to dry out, the average rainfall was only 100 to 200 millimeters a year.

    The effects of a drought?

    Consequently on average 62 people die per drought. As no water is being produced crops can fail to grow. Serious hunger can be caused to all children and adults who are left to starve during a drought. Health issues would spread to lots of people, it doesn’t just go around to people that can be harmed. Wildlife is terribly common too; animals that are not supplied with plants to eat and water to stay hydrated. Plants will stop there growth, the ground will start breaking up and in the sky the clouds will disappear and the sky will start clearing up.

    The warning signs?

    The weather will be one obvious warning sign of a drought, if it’s too hot a drought can be appearing. The rain will keep lowering down the amount of the days before total of rainfall until no rain will come for a long time. The ground will start drying up and be too hot to walk on without shoes.

    How to keep safe during a drought?

    Some of the most important things you can do to keep safe in a drought are by keeping shelter and to getting out of the hot sun. Later then finding water to keep hydrated will be hard but it’s necessary when a drought is occurring, saving water is also very important. If you water the plants and the ground there will be no dust storms (tornadoes) and bushfires, but if you don’t there will be serious consequences, supplying water faster so that it doesn’t run out and before it dries up is a need to all people who have lots of droughts in where they live.

    A drought is when in a dry country there is no rainfall for a long period of time. A drought can cause deaths, water to dry up, clouds to disappear and the ground to crumble and crack. Droughts can cause tornadoes; dust storms, and bushfires, droughts are most common in Africa and other countries that are low with water supplies. On average, 62 people die from a drought, but many more have died from some particular droughts. What would you do if you were stuck in a drought?

    That's how I feel about MK8 honestly. I don't even know what a fuggen WL is.

    Crew:
    I sadly don't have one... ;_; But I would love to play in one for this event.

    Planning on running everything on Saturday at this point in time. An estimated mock schedule will look like this (in EDT):

    12PM - Wave A Singles
    12PM - Wave B Singles
    1:30PM - Wave C Singles
    1:30PM - Wave D Singles
    3PM - Doubles Bracket
    5PM - Crews Bracket (after doubles finishes)
    7PM - Singles Top 8 (after crews finishes)

    For future (or people who want to specify), you may request a time frame to play in if necessary for singles. It's preferred not everyone ask for a time though so we can try to seed things more accurately, however.

    Doubles is probably too difficult to stream so unless someone can stream GFs in the room without lag, we'll just run it straight up from beginning to end. For crews, we'll try to stream top 4 if there's time. Top 8 should all be covered. There may be a stream going for some pools matches as well but we'll see in time.

    One last thing to note, signups aren't going to be allowed on the day this happens because there's too much planning to do. Signups will close March 25th at Midnight EST.

    Due to lack of signups this time we're going to be cancelling crews. Schedule will now look like the following:

    12PM - Wave A Pools
    2PM - Wave B Pools
    4PM - Doubles
    6PM (or whenever doubles finishes) - Top 8

    All in EST.

    Up to 24 entrants in singles and 26 in doubles. Hope to have even more come tomorrow also. Deadline is tomorrow at 11:59PM EST.
