SMO Any% League

Welcome to the SMO Any% League!

Main things to remember for runners


1) The League matches will be aired on https://www.twitch.tv/planbesports every Saturday from 9am PST until 5:30pm PST. This means that you will have either the option to race live on the assigned air time if you and your opponent both agree to do so, or to prerecord your race with your opponent on an unknown alt twitch account whenever the time is convenient. The recorded match will then be streamed at the scheduled air time with a live commentary.


2) Please make sure to always local record in case your internet fails and the run needs to be retimed.


3) Every week you will have a new opponent shown on this page. You and your opponent need to figure out a time to race and submit it to this form at least 24 hours in advance to schedule the race: https://forms.gle/csRJHM9qTsEZNbzk9


4) If you fail to prerecord your match before the scheduled airtime, staff will decide on who will get the points for this race depending on who put the most effort into scheduling it on time. If staff deems both players to be equally responsible for the delay, no one will get the points.


5) Each match is one race. You want to earn as many points in your matches as possible, the point system is described below.


6) The top 8 players in the standings after the regular Season ends will be admitted into the playoffs

Streaming

Please remember to always local record your races!

You must stream all your races to a twitch channel (if live you can choose between alt and main account, if prerecording, use an unknown alt account)

Your layout should consist of:


Your timer with the layout given to you in the discord

The Gameplay and optionally a camera

Nothing should be overlaying the gameplay or timer!


If your race is done live, you will be invited to participate in post race interviews for every match. These interviews are NOT mandatory

All races will be restreamed to twitch.tv/planbesports and uploaded to this youtube channel.


Cheat Prevention Method

Runners must set their Nintendo Switch settings date to a year given to them before each race (either by the restreamer or by your opponent). This is to ensure the gameplay being streamed is not prerecorded or spliced.


Note: Only use the years 2007-2060: http://www.unit-conversion.info/othertools/daylight-saving-time/


Scheduling

You must organize the date and time of your race with your opponent, then submit it using this form: https://forms.gle/csRJHM9qTsEZNbzk9

If you are choosing to do your match before its scheduled air date, a staff member will be present at that time to confirm the race has been started at the submitted race time. If that is not possible, a staff member will look it up at a later point in time.

Please communicate with your opponent via Discord direct message to work out a time that works for you both.

Please fill out the form correctly. If you would like change a race time, please submit a form with your new race time and message a staff member on Discord letting them know you did so, and which race time you are cancelling.

In cases where opponents cannot agree on an available time to race within the stream schedule and Round timeline, staff will attempt to adjust to these runners’ schedules.

If no agreement can be made, staff will decide on which runner has made their schedule the most available to take the win, or disqualify both runners if we deem their schedules are equally conflicting.


Technical Issues

To avoid the rules below, please make sure to always local record your races in case something happens


If at some point in your race your stream is experiencing technical difficulties (e.g. a lot of Frame drops or your stream goes offline) the race may continue but you should try to fix the problem as fast as you can, for example in cutscenes. If the problems are too big to handle, staff may decide on the outcome of the race on a case to case basis.


Regular Season and Playoffs

During the Regular Season, you will play everyone in the league once. This means you are guaranteed 11 matches.

Each match is one race. The goal is to earn as many points in your matches as possible by beating your opponent by the highest amount of time you can/losing by the least amount of time you can. (Exact Point system below)


The top 8 runners with the most points at the end of the Regular Season will move onto Playoffs.

Quarter Finals are best of 1.

Semi Finals and Bronze Match are best of 3 races.

Grand Finals is Best of 5.

Point System


Points are awarded based on the final time difference between you and your opponent in that race.

The winner of the race receives an initial 60 points.

30 extra points are then split between both runners based on the final time difference.

For every 10 seconds of time difference, the winner receives an extra point. The loser then receives the remaining extra points.

E.g. If the time difference is 41 seconds, the winners receives 64 total points. The loser receives 26.

E.g. If the time difference is 5 seconds, the winner receives 60 total points. The loser receives 30.

E.g. If the time difference is >5 minutes, the winner receives the full 90 points. The loser receives none.


Disclaimer

Your opponent will have the option to either take the win or reschedule your match if you:

1) Fail to participate in your scheduled match without 1 hour minimum prior notice

2) Fail to be prepared to begin your race up to 15 minutes after the scheduled start time


If your opponent attempts to contact you to schedule your race and you do not reply with sufficient time before the round is over, your opponent will have the option to take the win


If you forfeit a race, the full 90 points will be given to your opponent! They will be asked to continue the run for restreaming purposes. After one forfeit there won't be any further punishments, HOWEVER, if you forfeit a second race in the same season, you will be banned from the current league, every player you faced/would have faced will be given the full 90 points (even if they lost in their race). Further, you will be banned from attending the next Season, you can make a return in the qualifiers after that season has concluded!


Exceptions to these rules will be made on a case by case basis

Matches are open for voting!
