The Aroo Classic opens its doors to any and all participants. This is a showcase tournament with all wrestlers competing for the chance to be the undisputed #1.
The Aroo Classic will be contested under a Swiss-system style tournament. For the first round, all matches will be determined by seeding (to be explained further down below). Further matches will be determined by the edit’s W-L record; that is, players of the same win-loss record will face off against each other (an example being, an edit who is 2-1 will face off against another edit who is 2-1).
As it currently stands now, there will be 4 rounds. Under the Swiss-system ruleset, this will be the amount of rounds needed to determine a clear winner. If I decide to add more participants, then the rounds required may be increased to determine a clear winner.
Seeding will be done by a series of league matches (probably about 4 or 5 different leagues, this will likely be done off-camera/off-stream), with points being given in correlation to league placements. These points will then translate into a seeding order for the first round, with higher-seeded entries facing off against lower-seeded entries in the first round. Subsequent rounds will not require seeding.
I’ll try and avoid rematches whenever possible. If this gets expanded to where multiple entries are permitted, then I’ll also avoid pitting matches against edits of the same creator unless necessary (so no Senator vs. Senator matches in the first round, for example), and I’ll also try to avoid rematches from the same creator. Otherwise, subsequent rounds will be determined randomly.
Currently you are only permitted to submit one edit per user. If this gets expanded I may consider upping the entry limit but such an expansion is unlikely.
The maximum point limit is 180. Entries must not have Guts/Hardbody (or any of the Tier 2/3 skills that have those two skills). I’ll be testing to ensure that edits play nice with each other, as well as checking edits in general for quality (I gave a lot of leeway to the Arooper Junior due to its sheer size, I won’t give as much leeway here as I did back then).
Matches will be run vanilla (no mods). Rope Breaks and DQ counts are turned on. Going outside is allowed but to avoid draws, there are no countouts. Crits are turned on to Normal. CPU Level is set at Level 4.
Referee settings will be Fast Speed and Fast Count.
Theme songs are fine to link. Entrance formula will also be fine to link/post, but ideally they should be posted behind a spoiler tag. Matches will be run in the USA Grand Dome so that’s what your edit’s entrances should be based off of.
I have all the DLC so don’t worry about whether your stuff is hidden behind DLC or not.
