Greetings, peasants! Since the conclusion of that garbage of a Major, "Genesis," Bash Broz of the Dissidia Community is proud to present to you our very first Minor tournament of this forum: Get Salty 3: Shots Fired! What is Get Salty, you may ask? Sit down and pucker up, mother fucker cause its time that you clean your earholes out and listen to what The Rock is cookin'. Get Salty was a tournament series in 2009 & 2010 ran by some OOOOOLLLLLLD farts of the Dissidia Forums by the names of Mikeee, Rey Magnus, Kraid, Wedge and Rei-N. Their vision was to allow 100% of the game in a tournament setting and see what could be picked apart, in order to formulate a perfect ruleset. The series died out for unknown reasons, so here I am, Ehx, the last remnant of the Get Salty series to bring you back the glory of ehxploitations. Without further ado, here is the nitty gritties for Get Salty 3: Shots Fired:
[PLACED ON HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]

Feral Chaos ALLOWED
Chasing ALLOWED (not restricted to the One-Hit Chase Rule)

Sets are best of 3 matches. Winner's Finals, Loser's Finals and Grand Finals will be best of 5 matches.
Save ALL of your matches and send the replays to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any rage-quitting behavior, be it "softly" (pressing Start > giving up the match) or "hardly" (closing the PPSSPP, etc.) will result in a disqualification from the tournament. Shit talking before or after your matches, however, are A-okay! Please bring out the best in you, aside from being a player and hiding behind a computer monitor in your mommy's basement.
All stages, including the Omega variants, are allowed.
Match 1: A player will locate a TO. That TO will be responsible for a Coin Flip. Both players call heads or tails. The TO will, then, disclose the result of the Coin Flip. The winning player will be designated as "Coin Flip Champion" and the other as "Coin Flip Loser Jerk Face." The following will occur, afterwards:
Coin Flip Champion announces a stage to be played on.
A Double Blind Pick will occur.
Both players pick their character and customize at will.
Matches 2, 3, 4, 5:
Winner of previous match bans two stages. The stage banned also includes it's Omega variant.
Loser of previous match picks one of the remaining stages.
Winner announces character to be played.
Loser announces character to be played.
Both players customize at will.
Note: Dave's Stupid Rule will be in effect at all times.
How does double blind pick work?
Get Salty 3: Shots Fired will start at 6pm Pacific Standard Time (PST) and is expected to last 4-6 hours, depending on the efficiency of player's matches. At least three TO's will be present at all times to help coordinate the tournament in order to ensure a smooth transition.
Don't pull a Garuga or Spyder and take a million fucking years when customization your shit. Because this tournament allows, virtually, EVERYTHING, it is HIGHLY recommended that you have your builds ready prior to the commencement of the tournament. No one wants to stare at your character customizing for 15 straight minutes just because you were lazy gettin' fat off McDonalds before-hand. If you are caught doing this like a twat, a TO may get involved and reprimand you for your stupid'ness. This means that you could receive a verbal warning that could include mean and hurtful words, and criticism from the masses. Furthermore, if you deliberately ignore a TO's warning, you may be branded for a disqualification and constant shaming. Don't be that guy. Also, you are responsible for making sure that you and your opponents are not using hacked items. If you suspect that hacked items are present, do not continue with the match and notify a TO immediately. Remember, we want this tournament to run SMOOTHLY, not the other way around. Your understanding is appreciated!
