Super Mario 64 '70 Star' Tournament 2017


Welcome to the Super Mario 64 '70 Star' Tournament! The tournament is open to players of all skill levels. The category is "70 star". To participate you will need to be able to stream your gameplay -- from a console, virtual console, or emulator (Project64). SpeedRunsLive.com will be used for the official timing.  Please familiarize yourself with the rules there. You will be expected to join a Discord server (https://discord.gg/QQYtnf8), which we will use as our main source of communication. The matches will be streamed, with commentary, to the SpeedGaming Twitch channels (twitch.tv/SpeedGaming, SpeedGaming2, SpeedGaming3, SpeedGaming4).  After a race players may choose to be interviewed, if there is time.


The tournament format is 4-person Round Robin.  Players are divided into groups of 4. Group size may change depending on number of entrants. All players in that group play each other.  The top 2 players in each group advance to the final stage.  Ties are broken by (1) number of wins vs tied participants, followed by (2) fastest time in the tournament.  Seeding into the Round Robin stage is done by PB rank according to the Speedrun.com Leaderboards when signups close.  Runners with no PB will be randomized and placed at the bottom of the seeding.  Runners who want to submit a PB that is not on the leaderboard must contact the tournament organizers with a video before the deadline.


The semi-finals, finals, and bronze matches will be "best of 3" -- a player must win 2 races against their opponent (so either 2 or 3 races will be played).  The races do not need to be done back-to-back.


Players are in charge of contacting their opponent to decide a time and date to race.  The suggested order is shown under the "Matches" tab next to each group, however you may do them in any order. A match submission form and a schedule of submitted matches will be made available on the Discord server when the signups close.


Players will be seeded into the group stage. The seeding will be locked in when signups close. Players without a time on the leaderboard will be seeded randomly below the players with times. Seeding in the bracket stage will be determined by performance in the group stage.

If a player is unable to participate in a match before the cutoff for that stage, they will forfeit that match.

Breaking any of the SpeedRunsLive rules will result in at least a forfeit, possibly disqualification.

Breaking any rules of the '70 star' category (BLJ, Mips Clip) will result in a forfeit.
