Summer Smash V - Round 1 deadline is July 15th



Format is best of 7 with standard counterpicks. First pick is double blind. Only the loser of the previous game can switch characters.

Format will be a double elimination bracket, ideally with 64 players. Matches will probably start some time in late June.

Medium timer

Each round will take one week, with deadlines at midnight Eastern time on Sundays.

Playing matches early is allowed and encouraged.

After each match, the winner should post a match report in this thread including the result and matchup of each game played. (The loser can do it too if s/he wants.)

This year, Caralad will be in charge of scheduling conversations. Please do all of your scheduling in those conversations.

If you sign up, please view your participation as a responsibility to myself and the other players. I realize that not all circumstances can be foreseen, but please don’t drop just because you are going on vacation or out of frustration.

Like in the first Summer Smash, entrants must choose a video game character to represent. Characters must originate from a video game, and you cannot choose someone who has already been taken. Players returning from last year are encouraged to pick a new one, but they are not required to.

The top 8 finishers from last year to sign up will be seeded (Ties broken by Summer Smash III placing). Seeded players will be placed in their own divisions of the winners bracket.
