- In the Singles Event, players may not cooperate with other players in the tournament in order to gain an advantage.
- Examples of this include any kind of communication, teaming in-game, and anything else that could give players an advantage. If it’s questionable, it’s probably not allowed.
- Players that are found to be teaming will be immediately disqualified.
- Lap-trolling is forbidden.
- For time friendliness, players must select a Mii from the Mii bank, and then assign their pseudo to the Mii. During Doubles, players need to assign a team tag to the Mii. Players will have a maximum of 5 minutes to prepare their mii.
- For Doubles, team tags must be at the beginning of the Mii name with a clear separator. Failure to use a team tag will result in a -10 penalty to the team’s score.
- Names must not be deliberately offensive in any manner or attempt to impersonate another well-known player.
- Players who have access to an Amiibo are welcome to bring a copy of their mii to the tournament to use.
IV. Track Picking
- Players will have the choice to pick 1 track to ban per round.
- During Mii preparation time, a staff member will ask each player which track they wish to ban from the round. Before the room starts, the staff member will announce banned tracks.
- Each track can be played once during each round. If players pick a track that is banned or has already been played, they will receive a -10 point penalty to their individual score (team score for Doubles).
