Well, I'm not suggesting that ALL items be turned off - for instance, a lot of the items Neo suggested will probably stay on, because while some of them do upset game balance, that's... that's what they're for. UPSETTING THE BALANCE. There's nothing on the line in this tournament, no prize or anything, it'd just be a for fun thing... D: but I did wanna get rid of some of the items that most people agree should be turned off, which so far seems to be, like, superstars, healing items, and final smashes.
We can have a super-serious NO ITEMS FINAL DESTINATION tournament some other time.

In some cases I've been able to dodge people with hammers, and even been able to knock people out of the ring, sucks to be the hammer man! Because theres no way to jump in the air or do anything...except hammer your way to death.

Also, several items have stupidly random effects. Some bombs wont explode, lightning may shrink the person who touches it. Hammer heads fall off, clocks slow everybody down and of course, your character falls flat on his/her face.

Smash Bros is so unfriendly to tournament play that you may as well as jump off the ring.

I say all items on low. I don't feel like trying to argue with invalid points.

Yeah I'm not saying ALL ITEMS NEED OFF OR THE TOURNAMENT IS SHIT AND NEEDS TO BE RAPED BY THE WORLD, I'm just trying to present an argument for why those items are bad.  I'm fine with anything being on or off, I'll still play.

Marth can counter the golden/hammer.

I do that all the time. I even warn people, yet they still come after me.

I'm only playing if every item is set to off except smoke balls and Mr. Saturns which will be set to high.

If it's on a weekend I can do it.

I hope I'm not going to lag too much though.

I'll lose pitifully to the first person I fight!

Fixed.

It won't be me, anyway, because you're gonna be the final boss and there's no way I'm making it to the finals.

Not so much cancelled more so, never really started, Drak said he wasn't going to be the one to instigate it, just casually mention its possibility, all it needs is someone to take charge~

I would like to tourney.

Smash Balls or whatever the flock is for final smashink time should be turned off if we're trying to go for a semblance of minor balance, given that some people (Wario) get to have fun and others (Donkey Kong) get to be mediocre.

As a note, pretty much all the characters I play as have fun/rad/kickin' rad/bitchin'/awesome final smashes, so this is no tricycline whining.  This is SERIOUS BUSINESS.

I'm assuming weekends are primo for lagbrawltourney time.  Which weekend is optimal?  Are we going for doing the whole damn thing in one sitting?  How many folkses per match?  What about third party voicechat?  The game is lost for me if I can't foppishly eke out "I'm maaarioooo" to people playing Mario.

I don't know if a lot of people realize that they actually have to hit the attack buttons in time with the beat when they use DK's Final Smash. Of course that's gonna be tricky online anyway, what with lag and such. BUT YOU KNOW

I know that, I just don't know exactly what it means.  Which beat?  Which buttons?

The tournament half will be manually done, the fightin' will be done via lagbrawl, I'd assume.

My vote for system is going for 3 stock matches, 3 rounds per match, 2 of 3 round wins = victory, to allow for nodumbluck.package
