We will being trying out a new method of stage selection called Full List Stage Striking (FLSS)

Stage list:
Columbia
Dojo!
Hades
Metropolis
San Francisco
Practice medium 1
Practice medium 2

How FLSS works: Player/Team 1 (for dispute purposes, P1 is the lower number of the bracket) will "strike" 1 stage. Player/Team 2 will then "strike" 2 stages. Player/Team 1 will "strike" 1 stage. All stages that have been "striked" cannot be played in the set, this leaves 3 stages left, these stages are the only stages playable in the set.

If players cannot agree where to start match 1 out of the 3 stages, Player/Team 2 strikes 1 of the remaining stages, then Player/Team 1 strikes 1 stage, the remaining stage will be played game 1.

The losing Player/Team of round 1 may choose what stage to go to for round 2.

If players agree to a stage before striking and they cannot agree to a stage for game 2/3, striking order is the same but the played stage cannot be "striked".

-A Player/Team coming from the losers bracket in GFs must win 2 sets in order to win the tournament, this is because a Player/Team coming from the winner's bracket has not lost a set while the loser bracket Player/Team is down 1 set.
-All players must announce their character before striking game 1.

-Toro's air stall is banned.
-Using this technique results in forfeiture of the match.

Match Progression:
Loser of round 1 may choose the stage for round 2. Loser of round 2 may choose the stage for round 3.
If winner wants to change character, he must announce it before the loser announces their character but after the stage is chosen.
*Double Blind: If elected. (Both players must tell a neutral third party their character selections)

When reporting results please include the characters used.

I will have a XAT running and it is where the tournament will be run.

I am the TO, I am here to run the tournament in hopes the players have a fun time and the tournament gets run, don't be uncooperative.

If there are any issues during the tournament, do not hesitate to contact me.

I WILL NOT put you in the bracket unless you post in this thread or show up on the Xat the day of the tournament. I ENCOURAGE people to post their interest in this thread.

Check ins for the tournament will start anytime on thursday, post on the forums or go to the xat under your preferred bracket name to be entered in bracket.

Last tournament had no complaints about the rules, so I am happy to finally have a pretty solid rule-set. The reason I am attempting to use FLSS is because it reduces the time in between games for stage selection and it ensures "more fair" stages for a set, allowing each player to eliminate 2 stages they do not want to play while keeping the stage list big and preventing the need for an arbitrary "neutral" list. I REALLY WANT FEEDBACK ON FLSS, POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE!

I find that counterpicking takes longer and i'm not a fan of the 5 "neutral" list. I'm hoping that 4 strikes + 2 counterpicks at most will make the entire stage selection system simple and easy.

I won't run this ruleset again if people don't like it.

You are high if you think you will be done in 2 hours and past tournies have shown this.

Never said it will be done in 2 hours, but the bracket for singles should be far enough that I can run doubles without it slowing down singles much by that point.
