Welcome to the 2016 Ninja Gaiden II Any% Tournament!


Signups are closed. You may still join the tournament if you submit a sub 12:00 run to speedrun.com prior to 4/28/16 and notify me via PM on Challonge, Twitter, or Discord. Prior to the tournament, we will be confirming your participation and getting players to join the Discord server. Discord will be used to communicate with players and administrate races. Tutorials found here.


This tournament will take place over two days. Day one (Sunday, May 1st) is Swiss cutting to top 8 elimination rounds to be played on day two (Sunday, May 15th).


The first day of the tournament is a Swiss format and will be played from 11:00am PDT until the final round is completed. Players will be assigned to their first round matchup based on seeding by personal best (see Challonge bracket). If players have the same personal best, the more recent receives the higher seed (e.g. Backslash is 2, Jorf is 3). From there matchups will be based on record (e.g. all winners from round 1 play each other, and all losers play each other). After six rounds the top 8 players will advance and all other players are eliminated. Ties will be broken using total completion time over all rounds. A win is worth 2 points. A draw (tie on SRL) is worth 1 point, and intentional draws are not allowed. Losses are worth 0 points.


Forfeits are not allowed, and will result in a 15:00 time for purposes of tiebreakers. Byes are assigned per Challonge Swiss rules and in tiebreaking procedures a players average time would be used for the bye round.


Each Swiss round will include at least one, and up to three feature matches that will be restreamed and commented on the speedgaming channel. The feature matches will be determined by duckfist and myself prior to each round and we will try to show as many competitors as we can. Feature matches will be staggered by two minutes so that when the first race winner is decided there is still time to show the middle/end of the other feature matches. A round will start when a moderator types a notification in the discord chat to notify players. All players must ready up within 5 minutes of the round starting or they are given a match loss. Rounds will last 20 minutes and if your run is not completed in that time you are force forfeited and must move to the next round. If two players are both still racing each other at the end of the round the one that is further in the game is declared the winner (this counts final bosses defeated, e.g. if one player has defeated Jaquio and lost to the Demon to be sent back is still considered ahead of an opponent that is in 7-2 or fighting Jaquio etc.) Three way tiebreakers with one or more force forfeit loss competitors. Each competitor with a force forfeit will add their worst time to balance things out.


The second day of the tournament is a seeded single elimination bracket of the top 8 players who advanced from the Swiss rounds. The top 8 players will be seeded according to Swiss record and ties are broken using combined race times (lowest is seeded higher).  The top 8 matches will be played on Sunday, May 15th (time TBD depending on which players make it). Quarterfinal and semifinal matches are best of three races, finals match is best of five races.


The category for this tournament is Any%.  You can use the North American (U) or the Japanese (J) version of the game (but not PAL or SNES Trilogy version).  Timing begins from pressing start at the title screen and ends after defeating the final boss and waiting for the stage timer to countdown to triple zeros (000).


Players may use cartridge, flashcart, or emulator (FCEUX, NEStopia, and Bizhawk).


Players will use SpeedRunsLive  to time and record their race.  Once matchups for a round are posted the race will be created on SRL by the player on top of the bracket in Challonge. The time listed on SRL is the official time for the match.  Players are not allowed to forfeit unless round time has expired.  All players are required to stream and to follow all SRL rules.


Players may drop from the tournament after completion of any match during the tournament if they no longer want to participate. This will be done by notifying organizers in the Discord, and cannot be done during a match. 


At least one feature match each round will be streamed to Speedgaming along with commentary. During top 8 play all matches will be featured from the semifinals onward.
