Tournament Rules

Welcome to the 2016 Super Metroid Double Anti-Bingo (DAB) Tournament!

Runners of all skill levels are encouraged to compete!  Signups close on August 27, and the first week of matches will begin on September 3.  One week will be given for each round of matches.  All matches must be scheduled by the end of each respective week.  If extra time due to a scheduling conflict or other circumstance is needed, please contact a tournament organizer ASAP.

If a match isn't scheduled by the end of the defined week (11:59 PM PDT on the respective Friday), that match will count as a forfeit or one or both of the players.  If one player has issues with their opponent not responding to schedule a match by the deadline (and tournament admins are kept in the loop about communication issues), the opponent will be forfeited and the other player will advance with a win for the match.  If both players are considered no-shows (worst case), both players will be forfeited in order of seed.

Prior to the tournament, we will be confirming your participation and getting players to join the Discord server.  Discord will be the official medium used to communicate with players and schedule races.  If you cannot use Discord but would still like to participate in the tournament, please contact an organizer at the contact information listed below.  A submission form with corresponding spreadsheet will be made available to submit and display your scheduled times during the tournament.

The tournament will be in double elimination format.  All typical double elimination procedures will apply.  The loser's bracket finalist will have to win against the winner's bracket finalist twice in order to win the entire tournament.  Seeding will be done according to player rankings on SpeedRunsLive (SRL).  Runners with no SRL rank will be randomized and placed at the bottom of the seeding.

The category for this tournament is Double Anti-Bingo.  Find the rules for DAB at the following pastebin: http://pastebin.com/3vv8vGtq.  The bingo card to be used is located here on SRL: http://www.speedrunslive.com/tools/supermetroid-bingo/.

  • Item Acquisition: When you lose control of Samus before playing the item fanfare.
  • Finish in room: When you gain control of Samus after the door transition.
  • Station Rooms: When you gain control of Samus after the door transition into the respective station's room.

You must use the official North American/Japanese (JU) version of the game (not PAL).  Glitches, such as but not limited to, GT Code, SpaceTime beam, X-Ray Climbing, Out of Bounds, and Greyout Glitch (R-Mode) are not allowed.  All files should start at 0:00 with the intro sequence completed, so play begins at Ceres station.

Players will use SpeedRunsLive to time and record their race.  The time listed on SRL is the official time for the match.  All players are required to stream and to follow all SRL rules.
