If competition is the driving force behind your reason for gaming, watch our high-level, invite-only Super Smash Bros Ultimate regional take place at the Bendix Arena this December 19th! Players will battle 1-on-1 to claim the spot as the best Smash player in the region and take home cash from our $1000 prize pool. In order to receive an invite, players apply and/or be nominated by a TO from their local community.
This will be a best-of-three, bracket-style tournament among 28 invitees and 4 winners from our Saturday open tournament. Final seeding will be decided Sunday morning, before the event, but we will announce a general guide to bracket seeding in the coming weeks. Head to the bottom of the page to view our ruleset.
On Saturday, December 18th, our TOs on-site will be hosting a bring-your-own Switch tournament in the Bendix Arena LAN Center. Anyone with at least a Saturday access pass or higher may enter.
Details for tournament setup will be determined by the number of entrants. Please check our socials for updates, including the launch of our Smash.gg page.
The ruleset is subject to change based on review of our Smash coordination team. Final rules will be updated by 11/17/21

Self-Destruct Moves: In the event of a self destruct move that ends a game, the winner is determined by the results screen.
Sudden Death: In the case of a sudden death match, the winner is whoever has more stock or less percentage (if stock is tied). If there is a percentage tie or there is a tie on stock, a one-stock tiebreaker will be played with a 3-minute time limit. Sudden Death results are not valid. This process is repeated until a winner is determined.
STAGE SELECTION & LEGAL STAGES
Because the validity of a rock paper scissors match over the internet is difficult to verify the first stage in any set should be determined by player agreement. Player’s agreement on the first stage will come from the “Starter Stage List”
Play Game 1.
After playing Game 1, the winner will strike two stages from the total stage list.
The loser of Game 1 will pick a remaining stage.
The winner of Game 1 selects his character for Game 2.
The loser of Game 1 selects his character for Game 2.
Play Game 2
Repeat steps 5 through 8 until a majority (three) games have been won by either player.
Stage Agreement: Players may agree to choose any legal stages, as an alternative to normal rules.
