Counter-choice levels are only available in game 2 and from a set. The winner of the previous game will ban 1-2 levels – as many as requested. And then the loser of the previous game chooses from the remaining available levels. The following stages are generally considered counter-selection phases, which means that they can only be selected after the first part of a game. In some tournaments, they can be used as a starting phase or banned altogether: Tournament Legal describes the generally accepted rules and settings for use in competitive smash tournaments. In the SSBU, many elements of the tournament rules are consistent at the majors, but are not set in stone. Some specific details vary from tournament to tournament, with some local tournaments having completely different rules depending on the objectives of the tournament. The legality of the stages refers to the playable status of the different stages of the general public tournaments. Brawl had a very fragmented and controversial community when it came to which steps should be legal.
As a result, the legality list of stages is significantly more chaotic than in the previous two games, with most of the stages being controversial in one way or another. In addition, the legal status of a level has been heavily influenced by the legality of Meta Knight, as it tends to obtain even more drastic benefits at many marginal levels. Therefore, tournaments that have banned Meta Knight tend to allow more stages than tournaments that have kept it legal. Games or sets cannot be repeated due to misinterpretation of rules or misconfiguration of game settings, except for player-specific settings. Game settings must be configured in accordance with section 2.1. It is the responsibility of the players to seek clarification from the TO on the established rule in case of disagreement, and the outcome of a game or set will not be changed retrospectively, except in extreme circumstances. The verdict is at the discretion of the tournament staff. While the verdict can change from local to local, most Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments have the same rules to keep the scene consistent. Here are the main rules of the tournament that are followed: Music tracks are not tied to specific levels. My Music in the sound settings allows you to select all the songs in the series to which the scene is linked! The commonality of the characters can also play a role in which the phases are legal or prohibited. Also in Brawl, Meta Knight`s growing importance in the metagame meant that stage lists were becoming more restrictive in most regions.
In the Tri-State region, Meta Knight was not excluded from tournaments and, as a result, the Tri-State tournament scene banned or restricted stages such as Delfino Plaza, Hallebard and Rainbow Cruise due to Meta Knight`s overwhelming power on these stages. In some areas, however, Meta Knight was not as widespread as the tri-state region; As such, some of the above levels have different laws, with the halberd sometimes being a starting level and the frigate Orpheon moving from a forbidden level to a counter-choice. WHOBO 4, the first American major banned MK, had a long list of stages that included Delfino Plaza, Hellerd, Rainbow Cruise and Brinstar as counter-choices, although most of these stages were banned in legal MK tournaments at the time. The term legal step can also be used to describe any neutral or counter-selection phase, or equivalently, any non-prohibited phase. Also, the community as a whole has never considered the sampling steps in Stage Builder to be official steps, and so they are all considered prohibited. Nevertheless, none of the three levels would theoretically be legal in any set of rules: the hole has no tangible ledges from the outside and contains a powerful camping pitch in the lower left points; Bath often does not have the lower blast line and has walls that block horizontal breath lines and allow infinite breath lines; and Maze`s irregular design encourages camping, circle camping, and stable, and the architecture of the scene creates caves of life. Probably a lot of configurations often miss the steps, as they interfere with loading mods via the smash stack. Any player who intends to use a Mii during a set must declare this prior to the set. Players must inform their opponent of the chosen Mii moveset, which is listed in the “XXXX” format. Any combination of moves can be used, but any movesets a player wants to use during a set must be created before the start of the set.
If a move is used outside the proposed moveset, it is the opponent`s responsibility to immediately end the game and save the replay, and then inform a tournament organizer of the situation. More recently, Smash Remix has allowed some hacked stages in tournaments like Zebes Landing (a windless version of Dream Land) and even stages with a different layout, like 64 versions of Smashville, Yoshi`s Story, Pokémon Stadium, and others. You can also see other levels used in some tournaments, including Fountain of Dreams and Dream Land. Some tournaments even allow Minecraft World. Each tournament, whether it`s a local or major tournament, will have its own list of legal steps, so always check ahead. All tournament sets are “best of three” games, up to the best 8 tournament sets are best of 5 games. The following rules do not change between these two specified formats. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with the highest number of stages in the series and the ability to disable scene dangers, has the most potentially legal stages of any smash game. Since the level list and danger switch were revealed, players and TOs have been discussing the game`s level list and have yet to find a definitive answer. Major tournaments have largely made a mistake by having relatively large stadium lists (eight to ten), but some regional tournaments have already been reduced to four to six legal levels.
In the current Smash Back Room rulebook, all levels are definitely listed as Starter, Counterpick or Bann level as follows: The following is the Smash 64 ban list for stages in tournaments. As of mid-2015, four levels – Dream Land, Hyrule Castle, Congo Jungle and Peach`s Castle – were legal. Currently, Dream Land is the only stage that can be used in tournaments. However, as tournaments have moved from the vanilla version of the game to mod 19XX, in some tournaments such as GENESIS 5 or GENESIS 6, the Duel Zone and Final Destination levels, which were not available without piracy, saw some presence in doubles tournaments, although this is usually rare. Players suspected of collusion can be immediately disqualified from the tournament. This includes intentionally launching a game, sharing a payment/prize, or any other form of media manipulation. The TO reserves the right to refuse to pay event winnings/prizes to players suspected of collusion. A set of rules for start.gg is the set of tasks that players perform through online tournament games. These are mainly used to automate online tournaments and are usually not enabled for in-person tournaments. Players begin their set by first making a selection of double-blind characters. Once the characters are selected, players start with the race levels.
Stage Selection ClausesThe winner of the previous game will block 2 stagesPlayers can counter a level they have previously won by stalling by intentionally making the game unplayable or delaying the game of a set, and this will be judged at the discretion of the tournament staff. Blocking will result in the loss of the game for the player who initiated the action. Start.gg currently has a small selection of rule sets enabled for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which can be selected during the event creation process for your tournament page. When you activate a set of rules for your Ultimate tournament, players can make character and level selections in their start.gg game window. In Counterpicks, the winner of the previous game beats 2 legal levels after character selection and the loser chooses one of the remaining levels. In general, due to the wide variety between stages and types of scenes and the series as a whole, very few levels are balanced enough to be legal for professional competitive play, which is why the majority of stages are prohibited in all games. After each part of the set, before counter-picking, the player who won the previous game can ban two levels from the complete list of stages. These prohibitions do not remain in force in all works.
The loser of the previous game then chooses from the remaining phases, except for any other phase that the player won in the last game (see 2.3.2). The following stages are rarely used in large tournaments, but can still be found in small tournaments and Nintendo tournaments. These levels can also be used in competitive play via the gentleman`s rule. The following steps appear on the entry lists of virtually all tournaments, which means they can be selected for any game in a game: Milestone Agreement ClausePlayers can choose any level LEGAL TOURNAMENT if they both agree. Double-blind character selectionBoth players can request double-blind selection. In this situation, a referee or third party is secretly informed of each player`s decisions for the first round.
