    Introduction:

    An early summer storm saw a battle of 41 teams slogging their way to the team, and CoolDown, a French team, survived the storm that happened 2 months ago. Another storm is brewing, and it's about to strike October 8th. Plus, this marks the Turficane debut featuring smash.gg.


    Information:
    This tournament features 32 teams, so be sure to be one of the first 32 teams to register, otherwise you'll be on the waiting list. You may be entitled to play, depending on if teams don't make it, so keep note of that. Registration opens September 10th, and will stay open until either the goal of the amount of teams registered and/or will play is met, or October 7th, so if you want to register, register as soon it opens, since spots may fill up quickly.

    This is the first (for Turficane at least) tournament where you guys can vote on the Turfican3 structure, via the Strawpolls I posted the last few weeks. According to the votes, the format will be double elimination. That means:

    • Each round up to the Winners Quarterfinals and Losers Semifinals (depending on which side of the bracket you're on), will be best of 3. Every best of 3 round should take no more than 20 minutes.
    • Afterwards, every other remaining round leading up to the Grand Finals will be best of 5, whereas each round should last 40 minutes or less.
    • Finally, comes the Grand Finals, and that round should last 60 minutes or less.

    The tournament will take place October 8th, starting at 9 AM PDT/12 PM EDT/17:00 (5 PM) BST/18:00 (6 PM) CEST, with check-ins taking place an hour prior.

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________


    Disconnections:
    If you disconnect within the first 60 seconds of a game, you can call a replay (which you guys voted for in the polls). You're only entitled to one replay per round, otherwise if a DC occurs again, then the match must continue with teams playing shorthanded. Be sure to have 4 people ready to play at the start of every game. Replays are automatically given out if the entire lobby DCs.

    Delays:
    Don't take more than 5 minutes to get a game started, otherwise your team gets charged a game. After that, then your team gets disqualified.

    Lag (voted in favor at the polls):
    If you suspect a person/team causing a match to be laggy, then you can call for a speedtest. It's recommended that you have a ping under 80, otherwise the player(s) who have a higher ping than that cannot play. If the entire team fails to have a ping lower than 80, then the entire team cannot play.
    If you're hosting the lobby, this rule applies especially to you, if you don't have a wired connection for your Wii U.

    Substitutions:
    If you need to substitute players, you can substitute no more than 4 players prior to the next match. You can substitute many times as you wish, as long you have enough players to substitute with on your roster, but be wise if you do, because if you end up shorthanded, and you have no more substitutes, then you cannot continue playing.

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________


    Rotation:
    TBA (will be revealed before check-in time on the day of the tournament, Halo style)

    Also, might I want to add, welcome MickeyTheSlushie aboard as the newest TO-elect. I want to see how well you can do for something fishy, before I'll officially give you that role.

    Plus, the bracket and that is coming soon, via smash.gg.

    Chilly and Kirito are to be prevented playing in this event. Team captains, please make sure that you don't allow them on your teams, as they aren't permitted to play. You'll be given a list of NNIDs, Discord IDs, etc. affiliated to those players, so please take a look at them, so you'll know who Chilly and Kirito are, as a method of preventing them from trying out and that.

    I edited your last post. You can not just go around making accusations like this, are you f*cking kidding me?! This is your 1 warning.
