All standard controllers, including Joy-Cons, Nintendo Switch Pro controllers, and GameCube controllers are legal. SmashBox controllers or fightsticks of any kind are not permitted in the tournament. All controllers are subject to approval from Tournament officials.
The following stages are selected based on a player by player mutual agreement or rock-paper-scissors.
Winners MUST report their score to the event coordinator.
• Final Destination
• Pokémon Stadium 2
• Town and City
• If a game ends with a self-destruction move, the results screen will determine the winner.
• If time runs out, the winner is first determined by how many stocks remain, and then by the percentage after time is up.
* If both stock and percentage are the same, or a game ends in both players losing their last stock at the same time, then a tiebreaker is played, which consists of a 1 stock and 3 minute match with the same characters and the same stage. Players must notify tournament staff before proceeding onto a tiebreaker.
• Both players must arrive to their scheduled match area no later than 3 minutes after their match is scheduled to
start. Failure to arrive on time for a match will result in a player being awarded a match loss.
• It is considered the player’s responsibility to be aware of when and where their match is to take place,
and allowances will not be made for any players in breach of this rule.
• Players cannot change ANY game settings on the switch (for example, no changing the launch rate.) Players can still customize controller settings but any other changes may result in disqualification.
• Rules are subject to change under carefully considered circumstances.
In the event of a bug or glitch that affects gameplay, the full Match shall be played out. If a Player calls for a rematch due to the bug or glitch, the Players must save the replay of the bug or glitch and submit it to the Tournament officials for review. The Tournament officials may, at their sole and absolute discretion, determine whether or not the affected Match shall be re-played (partially or in its entirety).
• Players and team representatives may not intentionally manipulate a teammate’s controller, mouse or keyboard during a Game.
• All Systems Go management has the final ruling on all tournament matters.
In the case that the tournament is live-streamed, players may not use their phones to access the live-stream. Failure to comply will result in disqualification.
