• Format: Double elimination
  • Sets are played in a best two-out-of-three game format unless otherwise specified

game settings

Tournament matches are initiated through Local Versus mode with default tournament settings enabled (3 stocks, 8 minute timer, Aether stages “off”).

Characters for the first game are chosen double-blind (at the same time). For successive matches, the winner chooses their character first, and then the loser chooses their character.

stage selection

The first game’s stage is selected using 1-2-1 stage striking. Subsequent games in the series use winner-strikes-three. When choosing stages, a player cannot return to any stage they have previously won on without the consent of their opponent (Dave’s Stupid Rule).
