Must be 13 years old or older to play.
We will be using the Lunch Box stagelist. Other miscellaneous rules can be found below in the rules section.
Registration Ends: Each Saturday at 5:30 PM EST
Tournament Starts: Each Saturday at 6:00 PM EST
1.1 Set Length
Every set will be performed in a best of three format, with Top 8 all being played in a best of five format. Following rules do not change between the two set lengths.
1.2 Set Procedure
Players will select their characters via smash.gg’s built-in functions, therein performing a double blind character pick.
Players will then ban stages from the list of starter stages (see 2.2) given through a P1-P2-P2-P1 format for the first game and after each subsequent match, the winner will ban two stages from the combined list of starter and counterpick stages. Banned stages do not persist throughout the entire set.
1.3 Stage Clause
Stage clause (also known as DSR) is in effect during stage selection, which states that the winner of the previous game may not choose to go to the same stage consecutively.
1.4 Stage Agreement Clause
Players may choose to go to any LEGAL stage at any point during the set. If a non legal stage is chosen, both players may be subject to disqualification.
Making a game or set unplayable or delaying a set is strictly banned and may result in disqualification. This includes playing in other events at the same time, if it delays the playing of a set by a significant amount, at the sole discretion of the tournament staff.
1.6 Sudden Death
If a game goes to sudden death, the result of the in game sudden death will not determine the match results. The winner is instead decided by percent and stock amount. In the situation that both players have equal stocks and percent, a three minute long tie breaker where both players have one stock is played out to determine the winner.
If any player is found to be using an alias or hiding their identity to manipulate seeding will be disqualified unless they inform a tournament organizer prior to registration ending.
All sets in the winners bracket of round one will have an eight minute long timer for entrants to check in to their match. For the rest of the winners bracket, all sets will be run with seven minute long timers. All of the losers bracket matches will have five minute long timers.
Any form of bracket manipulation, such as intentionally losing a game or splitting prize money may be instantly disqualified. Tournament organizers reserve the right to deny payout to any entrant found to be guilty of collusion.
1.10 Lag Testing
In the event that there is lag, a player should request a moderator (option found at the bottom of the “chat” section of the set taskbar) and request a lag test. A lag test will first be performed on the one who requested the moderator and then on the other player. A lag test will be done via a one on one match, with no other spectators (if set is being streamed the streamers do not need to leave spectating) and must last at least forty seconds. If one of the players is found to be causing the game to lag they may be disqualified.
1.11 External Interruptions
If a game is interrupted due to external causes, such as a lan adapter being unplugged, the one at fault for the interruption will forfeit the game. If the player is unable to return quickly they will forfeit the set.
1.12 Player Absence
If a player leaves during a set, they will have three minutes to return before they may be disqualified. This time limit is at the discretion of the tournament organizers.
1.13 Unforeseen Situations
In the event that a situation arises that was not explicitly stated in this ruleset, the outcome is at the ultimate discretion of the tournament staff.
1.14 Mii Fighter Moves
If a player is playing a mii fighter and wishes to change their moveset after a game, the moveset switch is treated as switching characters. If the winner wishes to change the moveset of their mii in this event, they must tell their opponent in chat before selecting their character. If the loser wishes to do so, they do not need to let their opponent know until after they select the mii in smash.gg.

To be eligible to participate, a player must be at least 13 years old (or such other age, if greater, as may be required in such player’s country of residence.)
OPTIONAL: We realize not every player can do this, so this is not mandatory: If you have the capability, live streaming and/or recording video of all of your matches is a good idea, to help eliminate any possibility of any dispute arising as to the results of the match.
Sportsmanlike conduct is expected. You are NOT allowed to be disruptive or harass your opponent on Discord, Start.gg, Twitch chat, etc (or any other actions that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct except for actions intended to be allowed within the game itself as part of normal game-play.) If you do, then your actions may result in a game loss, match loss, or disqualification from the event without prizes, and/or ban from future events, solely at the discretion of the Tournament Staff.
Cheating of any kind will result in disqualification without prizes from the event, and being banned from all future events. If you are in a match where you believe your opponent cheated, please send any evidence you may have to the tournament staff. In addition to Hacking, "CHEATING" ALSO INCLUDES USING ANY BUG OR UNINTENDED EXPLOIT THAT EXISTS IN THE GAME, intentionally or unintentionally - UNLESS Staff has made an announcement to everyone about an exception to this rule. If this somehow happens to you unintentionally, you should immediately alert your opponent and tournament staff - if you don't, you will be deemed to have been Cheating, and you will be disqualified without prizing and banned from all future events.
The prize is delivered via Paypal. You must have an account to be able to claim it.
