Settle it in Smash!

It's taken some time, but we're now ready to go with the 2021 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament for the Mario Wiki Awards. With credit to Alex, who graciously let me reuse his OP and tournament structure from last year as a base, I hope to give this forum's Smash players a chance to play some matches against each other, meet some new faces, and enjoy themselves.

Once again this year, there will be two tournaments happening at the same time, both a 1-on-1 singles tournament and a 2-on-2 doubles tournament.

Brackets

Challonge link (Singles): https://challonge.com/81da94qk
Challonge link (Doubles): https://challonge.com/1dnnyp65

Rule set:

• 3 stocks
• 8 minutes
• Items and Final Smashes: Off
• Spirits: Off
• Stage morph and hazards: Off
• Team attack: On (for the team tourney)

Legal stages:
• All Battlefield variants
• Small Battlefield
• All Final Destination variants
• Lylat Cruise
• Smashville
• Town and City
• Pokémon Stadiums
• Kalos Pokémon League
• Yoshi's Island (Brawl)
• Yoshi's Story
• Unova Pokémon League

Gentleman's Rule is also in effect, you can use whatever normal stage you want so long as you both agree on it, aside from the following, which are all banned regardless (except for their BF/FD variants):
• Palutena's Temple
• 25m
• Hyrule Temple
• Mario Bros.
• The Great Cave Offensive

Also, any 2D stages (Flat Zone, Pac-Land, etc.) are banned entirely in all forms due to their lack of depth messing with the Z-Axis of some moves.

You may use any characters you would like, so long as they were added to the game before July 1st, 2021 (which is everyone currently in the roster).

Format:
  • All rounds are Best-2-of-3.
  • Singles tournament will go for 6 Rounds.
  • Doubles tournament will go for 5 Rounds.
  • Rounds will last a week. An extension can be granted if necessary, as I know coordination can be difficult.
    • Failing to partake in a fight during the time granted will result in a loss. If your partner fails to show during the time for doubles, it will have to count as a loss for the both of you. Continuing to not show up will result in tournament disqualification.
  • The Single player tournament will use a Swiss system, which places people against each other based on their performance.
  • The Doubles tournament will use a Round Robin system, which lets every team fight each other one time.
    • These may change depending on the number of players who enter.

Post your scores here, in Discord DMs, forum message, email, or however. The person and team with the most wins will, y'know, win.

Sign-ups:
So you want to play, do you? Well, I'm going to need these from you:

  • Solo sign-up
    • Your forum username
    • Your Switch username
    • Your Switch friend code
    • Time zone and times that work for you
  • Team sign-ups (one person posts for the both of you)
    • Both of your forum names
    • Both of your Switch usernames
    • Both of your Switch friend codes
    • Both of your time zones and times that work for you both
    • A team name for extra flare, and so I have one thing to call you by
Sign ups are open… NOW! They will close and the tournament will begin on . Happy Smashing!

I don't think there needs to be a whole separate thread for it, as most people work out their doubles partners through private conversation. I'm not opposed if you want to make a post here saying you're looking for a doubles partner. I'd also recommend doing some outreach, though, contacting people individually who might be interested in being your partner and asking them if they'll join you.

But why don't you post your interest in a doubles partner here first, and we'll see what happens? Maybe someone else who wants to do doubles and doesn't have a partner will pop up, and you two can join together.

Also add Small Battlefield to the stage list
Everyone who has signed up so far has been added to the OP, and I've added Small Battlefield to the allowed stages and removed Spring Stadium from the banned stages list based on feedback.

Really most times between 9am and like 11pm should work, though it depends on the day of the week (e.g. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays in particular I'll only be available parts of the day).

Might also sign up for doubles when I find a partner...

If you need help with paying for online, I'm certain there are people in this community (myself included) who would be willing to toss some extra dollars towards a family plan

About 24 hours remain for folks to sign up for this!

We're looking mostly in the clear here, though it's possible the doubles tourney will need to be shortened by a week if we go into it with only four teams. We'll see if there's anyone else who joins in there.

Otherwise, this should start up tomorrow without a problem. @Charlie Brown It's not a big deal, but if you could get your friend code in here in the next bit to expedite things, that would be appreciated.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up! I hope you enjoy Smashing.
