Hi, everyone. I wanted to throw the idea out there to see if there's sufficient interest in me hosting an SMB1 tournament.

I would likely start this sometime after SGDQ.

I feel we could either do any% (best of 3 races per round) or warpless.

If you all have an interest in this, let me know your thoughts and category preference. If there's enough interest, I will likely start one. I don't want to start one if there's going to be like less than 10 people.

Yes, do warpless, we havent had a warpless race/tourney with a bunch of people in forever. That would be so much fun

I'm in, but if this happens will this incorporate SpeedRunsLive in it at all? I think that could help.

The format would be something like that of the SMW No Cape No Starworld tournament. Each week you would have a match with an opponent until you are eliminated.

Races would be done on SRL and the winner of the matchup would be based off of the SRL results (unless it's so very close we'd need to retime it).

If we did any% you would do three any% races and the winner is who wins the best three races on the same day. Hopefully that makes sense.

If we did warpless, it would be one race and the winner advances to the next round.

Most of the time, these brackets are double elimination, so there's a winners bracket and losers bracket.

To hopefully give those if you an idea of how this works, here is the tournament I ran in 2013: http://smb1.challonge.com/smb1warpless
Sadly it didn't come to completion and I ran it at a bad time as well. The community is much larger now and if ran at a better time, I feel it could be more successful.

A warpless tourney sounds great, i'm sure many people would watch it if it has enough publicity.

I may also look into trying to restream some of the matches like the SMW tournament does. I don't know how many people would be available to do help with that, but it's still an idea that I think could be cool. Would also give some exposure to some of the newer/smaller streams.

I'd be down for Warpless, I could also help with restreaming/commentary if need be.

It would really help the stream glib.

It'd be pretty easy to get it on one of the big channels. Warpless would be sweet.

Only question is when will the 2013 Warpless tournament finish?

I would be down for either any% or warpless, it seems that warpless is what everyone is wanting to do

If this is still a consideration, I'd be down for a tournament. I think the community could use it, personally. I will participate if it's warpless or hundo.

There seems to be enough interest in this so I'll get the bracket setup here within the next day or so and open registration.
