Welcome To The NintenDomination Thread!
So, eventually this is where the hot topics will go for the thread (for now, they're just a little bit below this), containing any major news regarding Nintendo, and indeed, in the thread. In the meantime, let's leave this as a short introduction to the thread.
Basically, if you're familar with threads like this one for Playstation, I'm going to be doing something similar. If you aren't, then this will hopefully grow into a thread where people interested in Nintendo gaming, at any level, can talk freely about anything and everything Nintendo-related without the needless "console wars" going around elsewhere. Consider it a safe haven, if you would.
In addition, I'll be posting some news here, and I'll be offering incentives for people to do the same whenever they find any in the thread. Anything major I'll link in the main thread for an appropriate level of time, and everything else will be dumped in the second post for, say, a week for ease of access. Sound simple? I hope so, because it really is!
Click here for the current thread poll! Currently it's: Which of the following Super Smash Bros (Wii U) stages should (if any) be banned for our tournies?
These are the threads on this site which every self-respecting Nintendo fan on this site should be familiar with.
Smash Wii U Tourney
So how will things work? Well, first things first...
ADD YOUR OPPONENT ON NNID BEFORE WE GET STARTED.
Perhaps I wasn't clear. Let me say it again.
ADD YOUR OPPONENT ON NNID BEFORE WE GET STARTED.
Alright, we on the same page? Have you added your opponent? Good. Next thing to do is for the host to create a room, then the opponent joins that room. The host will select the first stage; which can be any stage of their choice. The matches will be 3 stock, 8 minutes, no items. Upon the conclusion of this match, the loser will decide on a stage and then the same happens. If the score is 1-1 then the opponent selects the final tiebreak stage; but stages may not be repeated. It sounds simple, because it really is.
What happens after that is up to you guys. Here's the possibilities:
- The winners progress through and play against another winner in a straight knockout tourney
- The losers play against each other until there are 8 "winners", then the knockout tourney continues as above
- The tourney is "split" into three groups of four (provisionally). Each group member plays against each other in a round robin fashion; the top two progress and then the best performing third place competitors make it to complete the 8; with a knockout tourney following thereafter
That might all be a lot to take in, but rest assured when we get "stuck in" it'll all make sense. Just focus on your match and let me worry about everything else. And be sure to say which format you like the sound of best; we'll stick with that in the future. 4 player matches are not out of the equation after the main tourney is finished; but let's keep it 1v1 for now.
Oh, and most importantly, good luck and have fun!
Mario Kart 8 Ranking Tourney
Next Tourney - 7th March 10:30 GMT
Mario Kart 8 is finally here! To celebrate, how about an official ranked Mario Kart 8 Tourney? It'll follow the same general feel as the Mario Kart 7 Tourneys, put in the tourney code, post in here to show you're ready about 10 minutes before it's due to start, wait for my signal to go in, then it's every man for themselves! If something happens which means you can't take part; don't just "not show", please inform me beforehand so we aren't waiting if at all possible. Repeated missing of the tourneys will mean automatic exclusion from any future tourneys, and your points total to be reset to zero.
Most important thing as usual is to have fun, this will be a weekly thing and the performance in this tourney will go towards the official rankings in the Mario Kart 8 thread. So try your best!
Please be here about 10-15 minutes before the tourney is due to start. Post here when you're online and ready to go, then at the start time the group leaders (Ultra for Group 1, myself for Group 2) will enter and post. It is imperative that you then enter the tourney promptly thereafter, but not before. Odds are on that we will enter on exactly the hour; but do check before entering (even if it means lots of refreshing!)
There should be 9 people in each group (see below). After the eight races, the best six from each group will move onto the "Finals" tourney. Here, there will be five more races to decide the ultimate VGC champion, so try your best! The whole thing should last approximately an hour.
Please if you wish to join, say so ASAP!
Also if needs be, my NNID is Conegamer for those of you yet to add me.
1st place - 40 points, 4 stars
2nd place - 20 points, 3 stars
3rd place - 15 points, 2 stars
4th place- 10 points, 1 star
Competitor- 5 points
Pokemon X/Y Tourney
Next Event: Retired
So Pokemon X and Y have been out for quite a while now...so it's about time we have a proper competiton! It's quite simple, really. Just say in the thread that you want to join, along with your friend code (just to first time, I'll save them here after!) and I'll add you to the OP. For this firrst tourney, we'll be doing a round-robin event. Namely, that means everyone will play everyone else, so it should be a level playing field as opposed to what would eventually be the two best players fighting each other straight away. Then, the top 4 or so people (depending on how many people take part, this number could change) will progress further, and the person who won the most will play the person who won the least (who get through, so 4th) and so on, and then the winners here will play each other for overall victory!
Sounds simple, right? Here's some pretty basic restrictions, which are changable if people don't like it. Note however that, if you break one of these rules, you will be immediately removed from the tourney, not allowed to play in future tourneys, and your points total will be reset to zero. So please follow them!
- ALL Pokemon are Level 50
- Banned List:
- Banned Items:
- Six Pokemon each, you can't change these Pokemon after you start the tourney.

Next Event: TBA
To join, merely post in the thread and be online approximately 15 minutes before the tourney is set to begin. You don't need to know any friend codes, merely the community which you will be in for the races! If there are more than 6 entrants, then we will split into 2 groups (Group 1 and Group 2). The top three from these two groups will go forward into the final, where you race the best the site has to offer! If there are 6 or fewer people, then everyone goes straight into the finals!
The tourney will take place if 5 or more people are willing to take part. If not, then it shall be delayed until the following Sunday, where I shall renegotiate timings.
Here are the players this week with the groups:
1st- 25 Coins, 3 Stars
2nd- 15 Coins, 2 Stars
3rd- 10 Coins, 1 Star
4th or below- 3 Coins
