    About

    This tournament is designed to create an environment similar to Silver's randomized weapons tournament, but with more control and a couple of gimmicks here and there.

    Prize Pool
    $9999 for first placein dog years
    One free meme for second place

    Restrictions list
    This tournament features a set of restrictions, 4(?) of which are randomly selected at each round. These restrictions are to be taken into account when selecting your weapons/gear for that round. The restrictions are generated at the start of each round. In the event of contradicting restrictions, some will be rerolled.
    Additional details will be added later, but for now, here is the current list of restrictions. This is subject to change.

    Weapon with a beakon
    Weapon with a kraken
    Weapon with bomb rush
    Long-range blaster (ranged blaster, rapid blaster, and rapid blaster pro)
    Short-ranged shooter (sploosh-o-matic, splash-o-matic, splattershot Jr., aerospray)
    Long-range charger, scoped or unscoped (Vanilla, Kelp, E3k, CE3k)
    Brush weapon
    Weapon with a disruptor
    Weapon with inkstrike
    Weapon with ink mines
    Slosher weapon
    Dynamo roller (either variant)
    H-3 Nozzlenose (either variant)
    Bamboozler (either variant)
    Squiffer (either variant)
    Aerospray RG
    x2 multiplier to one of the options
    x4 multiplier to one option of the TOs choice
    Weapon with seekers
    Any gal weapon
    Hydra splatling (either variant)
    Sploosh-o-matic (either variant)
    Free pick (any weapon unaffected by the other three restrictions)
    TO's choice (TO persoanlly picks one of the restrictions)
    Tentatek splattershot, regular .52 gal, .96 gal deco, E-liter (either variant), Dynamo roller (either varient), Luna blaster neo (Aka Meta pick)
    No Echolocater for the entire team
    Entire team must wear haunt gear
    No Cold Blooded for the entire team
    No invulnerable specials (bubble/kraken) for the entire team

    Time/Date
    30 January, 1pm EST start (on both days). Check in will open 2 hours before the start of the tournament on the first day. http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/est
    Voting has closed and Saturday, as usual, is the preferred day.

    Format
    Double elimination seems to be the player favorite, so we'll stick with that.

    The bracket can be viewed here: http://challonge.com/rngrst

    Map Selection
    Coming soon
    The following system will be used.
    • First 3 maps are randomly generated with TO tweaking but follow the pattern of SZ-TC-RM
    • If the set is not decided after the third game, the losing team gets to choose the gamemode and map for the fourth round
    • If the set is still not decided, the team that previously didn't get to choose gets to do so now
    • If one team isn't universally better than the other team, the set will not end before the 4th game
    • This means every team will get to play the preferred mode twice every set
    • For the Grand Finals and Bracket Reset, it will work in the same way. After the first 3 games, the losing team will select a map/mode combination, then the losing team after each game will take turns selecting a map/mode combination
    For the Grand Finals and Bracket Reset, the same map/mode combination may not be played twice, regardless if it is selected by player or decided by TO.

    Sub Rules
    Each team is allowed to sub 1 player between each game. If a player disconnects, they are allowed to sub 2, as per the disconnection rules below.

    Communication
    Communication will be done via Discord before the tournament and on the day.
    https://discord.gg/0fAmYNQFcREgcfTV

    Disconnection
    If a player disconnects, each team is allowed one remake per round. Evidence must be provided.
    In the event of a remake, teams are expected to have the same choice of weapons, but these are not locked to the players.
    For example, X, the Eliter, disconnects and is replaced by Y. Z is better with chargers than Y, so Z takes over the Eliter role, and Y uses the weapon that Z was previously using.

    Hosting
    The 'lower' team on the Challonge bracket may choose who hosts.

    Registration
    Registration will be handled through the following Google form: http://goo.gl/forms/4ggZ8UZ8T6
    You can view the currently registered teams here: https://goo.gl/iABT2J
    Registration closes 10 minutes before the start time. If you need something on your roster changed, please PM me here, on Discord, or post here with what team you represent and what changes you would like made.


    Special thanks to TSB, JFG, fat and Katsuie for support and format work. Thanks to SRL Silver for giving us the green light. Thanks to FLC (peace be upon him) for making the competitive Splatoon community what it is today.

    Will Hydra Splatling include both variants of Hydra, or just regular?

    Wait a minute..."date is subject to change..."

    If the date is subject to change, that could mean the tournament moves forward into February. This could mean that the title of the tournament might change to a Februarian pun like "Feb-randomizer Fantastic" etc.

    This means the Name is also Subject To Change........

    Well, the winner has been confirmed (and it's not Half Life 3) kappa

    PS: I know this is a stupid question, but restrictions means stuff that you can't use correct.

    Yep, so for example if the restrictions for round 1 are

    Long-range blaster, Aerospray RG, Entire team must wear haunt gear and No Echolocater for the entire team

    That means your team must have at least 1 long range blaster (Rapid, Rapid Pro, Range), at least 1 Aerospray RG, your entire team must be wearing haunt gear, and no weapons you use may have the Echolocator special. The other 2 weapons can be anything, as long as you keep in line with the restrictions.
