Smash 4 Irondraft: Bracket Up

Recommended Posts

In a bit of a change of pace, its time for a mini ironman styled tournament with character drafting! This one is in by popular demand on the discord. 16 players, 3 characters per player. Not sure when its starting, but we can at least get the drafting done.

Ironman Rules

In this tournament, we are playing ironman style, with 3 characters per player. First match, you and your opponent will put one of your characters against each other and the result of that is permanent, say you lost 2 lives vs their first character, you must Self Destruct to match that stock count for their next character.

Drafting Rules

It will be snake styled drafting, the order will be based on various factors, Euklyd's seeding chart may or may not be used, randomness may happen, but regardless of the result. This is how things work, as stated by Euklyd himself (But there are 16 players not 3)

People pick in order, and then once they reach the last person, that last person picks an additional time and the order reverses.

This reversal continues at either end until everyone has picked 3 characters.

For example, if the order is

1) Euklyd
2) Jedi
3) Refa

- Then first, Euklyd will pick Sheik like the tierwhore he is.
- Jedi will then pick Cloud, because he is also a tierwhore.
- Refa will pick Marth because he has some sort of underlying psychological complex, and since he's the last person, he gets to pick again.
- Refa will pick Lucina because she's literally Marth.
- Jedi will then pick Ike because Ike is a poor-man's Cloud.
- Euklyd will pick Diddy Kong because he's a REAL tierwhore unlike Jedi. Since he's at the end, he gets to pick again.
- Euklyd will pick Bayonetta for previously mentioned reasons.
- Jedi will pick Shulk because he too is a poor-man's Cloud.
- Finally, Refa will pick Roy because he's basically FireMarth, and Refa doesn't realize that Roy has a wet noodle instead of a sword.

SET PROCEDURE
Players select characters, tell each other your character of choice -Dishonesty will not be tolerated- if a player wishes, they may opt for a blind pick, in which both players secretly inform a neutral third party of their selection, and that person announces both at the same time
First stage is selected according to stage striking.
Game is played
Counterpicking procedure takes place:
Game winner bans 1 stage. This ban is in effect for the following game ONLY.
Game loser picks stage from among legal stages. Players/teams may not pick ANY stage they have won on in the set previously except by agreement of the opponent (Stage Clause, also known as Modified Dave's Stupid Rule).
Winner keeps their character and current stock count

Loser sends in their next character

You play till someone runs out of characters

STAGE STRIKING:
Use Game & Watch Hammer (Both players pick G&W and do his side b for the higher number) or flip a coin on Discord. Winner strikes the first stage. Loser then strikes the next two stages. Winner strikes the last one effectively choosing the first stage they play on. (1-2-1)

Daves Stupid Rule
You may not counterpick to a stage you have won on in the set unless your opponent agrees to it.

Gentlemans Rule
If you and your opponent agree to it, you may play a nonlegal stage (I.E Midgar,Gamer, etc) or a stage won on by the current player picking (It negates Daves Stupid Rule)

Mii's
You may make a Mii for tourney play if you so wish, but you can only setup one of each type and you can't switch their movesets after you lock them in.

Replays
You are to send replays to me (NNID is Jedisupersonic), each match of your sets, no exceptions, however if you do miss replays you won't be penalized, I'll just be disappointed.

NNID: EricLK13

also, some questions about the character picking.

1. Can more than 1 person use the same character

2. do you pick 3 permanent characters or do you pick new ones each set?

3. What happened to bayo and corrin?

not jedi but I can answer some questions

1: Nope, we all take turns picking characters like the example in the OP. So when Euklyd picked Sheik, nobody else is able to.

2. You pick 3 at the start of the tournament, and use the same three for the whole thing.

3. I dunno, Cloud is also missing.
