[COLOR="lime"][SIZE="4"]Melee in the Southwest, wut?[/SIZE][/COLOR]
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, OHSNAP [Oklahoma Hosts Smash: Need a Pummelling?]  was a series of oklahoma melee tournaments hosted by various TOs, namely myself and RastaImposta. But, just as the southwest smash scene had evolved to Brawl, so too did the tournament series.

However! Melee is far from dead in Oklahoma, new players have shown their faces, and more and more veterans have come out of the woodwork wondering what happened to the melee tournament scene in the SW. Scud and I took this as a prompt and present to you the first Oklahoma melee tournament in 3 years, and hopefully the start of a continuing series:

[SIZE="3"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Intimikill[/COLOR][/SIZE]: to end the life of an opponent completely with mindgames; to kill without any physical interaction.

With this project I hope to see more than just texas and kansas again, but some midwest and midsouth buddies. now...on to some specifics


[COLOR="lime"][SIZE="4"]Venue[/SIZE][/COLOR]
Intimikill will take place at the Oklahoma University student union, first floor. There will be free parking; instructions will come later. The address for the Oklahoma Memorial Union is:
[COLOR="Blue"][SIZE="3"]900 Asp Avenue
Norman, OK 73019[/SIZE][/COLOR]

There will be NO VENUE FEE :D


[COLOR="lime"][SIZE="4"]Set-ups[/SIZE][/COLOR]
we are currently in need of both televisions and systems (both wiis and gamecubes will be acceptable). the union should be providing two moderately sized televisions. since melee players are always prepared, though, i am confident this need will dwindle quickly.

[COLOR="Lime"][SIZE="4"]Housing[/SIZE][/COLOR]
Housing is not insured, but will be very abundant. The system is first come first serve, essentially. i will update this thread soon with local hotel links, but as it stands, most every OOSer should get free housing :D

[COLOR="seagreen"]Match/Set Rules[/COLOR]

*All players are to begin all matches with 4-stock, with items off, on an 8-minute timer.
*All sets are best 2/3, excluding loser's quarter-finals, loser's semi-finals, loser's finals, winner's semi-finals, winner's finals, and grand finals (both sets), which will be best 3/5.
*The first stage in each set, unless agreed upon, must be chosen at random.
*Each player may strike 1 stage to be chosen by random. This stage will be legal to be chosen as a counter-pick by either player, however.
*Additionally, each player may strike 1 stage from the set. This stage may be a random. Stage strikes are to be announced after both players finalize their character choices. A double-blind character pick may be called by either player at any time before the first match.
*Counter-picking will be in standard Advanced Slob format: loser chooses stage, winner chooses character, loser chooses character.
*Dave's Stupid Rule: no stage may be counter-picked by a player that previously won on it in the set, unless agreed upon by both players.
*Modified controllers, and third-party controllers with turbo or slow capabilities are banned.
*Stall tactics and glitches are both banned. You know what they are.
*Wobbling is banned.
*A 10-minute grace period will be allowed after matches are called. If a party does not arrive at his or her match within that time, he or she will be disqualified from the set,
*Additional teams rules: lifestealing will be allowed, and team attack will be ON.

I know that Timmy has already contacted you, or tried to contact you but.......

Would there be anyway that we combine our tournaments? Instead of us doing our SSBB 1v1, we let you guys come in and run your SSBM tournaments. This way we arent running two tournaments on the same day and it will cutdown on the venue costs for both parties.

Here is the link to our tournament, its still in the planning stages because we wanted to see if you guys would do this or not. http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,2563.0.html

I'll probably check it out. I don't play SSB, but it would be fun to watch. If you guys need any help, let me know.

shebang!
tournament moved to the 21st for now. date will be finalized by the weekend. :D

i'd like to talk to HxC about our tournies. since we're no longer holding our events simultaneously, i'd like to try and garner some additional OU/norman attention towards your tournament on the 7th, and will probably be there too :D
i've been a melee TO host for a long time and am up for helping however i can. hopefully you guys can make it out to intimikill now, too ^.^

bump, yet 1 more date change, this time it is finalized.
hope to see peeps there, got a sponsorship already (no venue fee!) and pa system/projector/other cool stuff to make the tournament run quite smoothly. OKC better represent and come give norman a challenge, and better yet show those out-of-staters who's boss!

copy and pasted all the new information. lol, whoops, looks like a lot of the coding doesn't match up from the original forums this was posted in but i'll clean that up later.
i'll be in contact with HxC about the tvs and just general supporting each other's events...ness; it was good to meet whoever i did at the brawl/halo tournament. i was the one running brawl brackets/recording/streaming/etc.

lots of new players committed to coming, both in- and out-of-state. :D
hope to see some okgamers representation, still! less than a month away!

don't forget: free parking, no venue fee, housing for those who need it, tons of time for friendlies, a tekken 6 setup, PA system/projectors/more for clear and easy organization for both the TOs and the competitors, two of the top 5 captain falcon players in america, at least 3 recording setups...i could go on and on but you see the point - it will be amazing! :D the OU locals will be there, i want to see OKC and tulsa peeps too. lots of new players committed to coming, both in- and out-of-state. hope to see some okgamers representation, still! less than a month away!

also, for anyone coming, we could use a couple more TVs and a few more console/game disc setups!
