IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE TOURNEY, YOU MUST JOIN THE TOURNAMENT DISCORD AT https://discord.gg/MfG2CjH


Format

The run category for this tournament is Any%. Timing starts on selecting "one player game" and ends on the final hit on Nightmare. Players of all skill levels are welcome to participate.


The tournament will be run with double elimination. Players will be expected to play at least one game a week if in winners bracket, or two a week in losers.


Dates

Registration ends: March 30th

Tournament begins: April 2nd.


Seeding

Players will be seeded based on their known best time. For the majority of players, this will be their time on the leaderboards when registration ends, so try to post a time beforehand! Emulator times without BIOS, denoted by an asterisk (*), will be adjusted by 50 seconds to account for faster load times. Players without any submitted  times will be randomized at the bottom.


Rules

In order to ensure fairness in loading times, all players must use either console (DS, GBP, or Wii U VC) or one of the following emulators:

  • VBA 1.7.2
  • mGBA
  • BizHawk

Additionally, if an emulator is used, the GBA BIOS file must be used, and the Game Boy Advance startup screen must be displayed before the race begins. 


You must stream your races, and they will be mirrored on one of the SpeedGaming channels. Ensure you have nothing over your game feed and no audio except for game audio when you are racing. It is also recommended that you locally save your race-stream file in the event that your stream is disconnected and you are “proofcalled” on your time. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times.


Sandbagging or throwing a race just makes everyone wait for you and just overall isn't pleasant for anyone involved. If it is obvious that you are trying to throw, you will be immediately disqualified from the tournament, winners' or not. In the spirit of competition, please try your best in all of your races.


SpeedRunsLive (SRL) will be used for races in this tourney. If you are not registered with SRL, please do so now. If you do not know how to set up or use an SRL account, please contact a tourney admin for assistance. 


Scheduled matches need to be played before the specified deadline. If you do not make yourself available for a match before the deadline, and do not contact your opponent or one of the tournament admins, you will be disqualified and your opponent will automatically advance. If admins are contacted in a timely manner, there will likely be some leniency at their discretion, but please do try to complete your matches on schedule.


Lastly, in the rare case of a tie according to the SRL timer, the race will have to be replayed.
