SpeedGaming Tournament #3!
« le: 08 décembre 2021, à 13:40:10 »
There will be another SpeedGaming SMK tournament starting in January 2022!  :D

 
Anyone is welcome to join! All you need to do is join the SMK Community Discord (https://discord.gg/WPYmCsbUs9) and contact either of the tournament admins, Firewaster and KVD, with the following information before the deadline of January 2 at 23:59 CEST:

- your username.
- your Twitch channel (streaming is required).
- your name on the Players'Page, if applicable.
- your country, if you're not ranked on the Players' Page.
 
All participants are required to be present in the SMK Community Discord. Discord will be used for announcements throughout the tournament, and players will need to have Discord open during their matches for communication with their opponent.

If you will not be using direct game capture for your stream, you must inform a tournament admin when signing up. You will be asked to demonstrate your setup. If your stream quality is deemed to be too low, you will not be allowed to participate.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Outlined below are the specific rules for the tournament, some of which are still being determined/discussed.

Game rules:

- Any official (NTSC) release of the game is permitted, as well as SNES emulators that are generally accepted for speedruns (such as SNES9x v1.51+ and BSNES).
- Participants must play GP150cc in 1P mode.
- Any character is allowed, but character selection is limited according to the "Match rules" section.
- NBT is allowed.
- Item usage is allowed.
- Lapskips (manipulating the finish line trigger) are banned, with the exception of using a mushroom or feather to trigger the finish line OoB, which is only allowed on lap 5
 
Tournament rules:

- The tournament structure will be decided based on the number and composition of signups. The format will contain a possible round robin group stage and a guaranteed elimination bracket (either single or double) knockout stage.

- Players will be seeded based on a seeding one-try speedrun that is to be performed before the start of the tournament. This will entail a 1P all-cups speedrun* in which all character classes have to be used once. There are 4 cups and 4 character classes / pairs (1: Mario/Luigi; 2: Princess/Yoshi; 3: Bowser/DK Jr.; 4: Koopa/Toad). Which character class is used for which cup is entirely up to the player. If a player fails to perform a seeding speedrun, they will be unseeded and thus placed beneath all seeded players in the seeding list.

- Once a match pairing has been established, players will generally have until the end of the following week (Sunday night) to play their match. This deadline will be enforced more strictly for matches that represent a bottleneck for the tournament's progression.

* For seeding speedruns we will schedule a community event with the goal to have as many tournament participants streaming simultaneously as possible; the exact time and date for this will be announced later. It is encouraged for all players to join this, but of course it will be possible / allowed to perform your seeding run at another moment if you happen to be unavailable for the community-wide one.

Match rules:

We have proposed two different rulesets for the character class usage aspect of this tournament and would like some community feedback before deciding which one is to be used. The two options are [WEIGHT CLASSES] and [CHARACTERS]. More info below:

[WEIGHT CLASSES]

Match rules:

- Every match will be a first-to-three (best-of-5).
- Each point is decided based on the fastest completion of a single cup.
- The timing for each cup starts at menu activation (pressing B on the title screen) and ends upon crossing the finish line of the last track of the cup.
- Players are allowed to prepare their menus before starting a cup.
- The selection of cups and weight classes will go as detailed below. The players can't pick the same weight class again unless they have played with all other weight classes.

Please let us know in the Tournaments #discussion channel which ruleset you find the most appealing. Or alternatively if you think that using different character classes is a bad idea altogether, we would like to know that as well, just in case that this represents the majority. You can also vote by reacting to the Discord post with the corresponding emote, but please only vote if you are planning to join the tournament.
