At the start of the set, the players will play rock/paper/scissors, with the winner being granted control. Whoever has control then gets to force their choice of Port Selection (if they choose). If they do, the other player has control for stage striking. If they do not force port, they retain control going into stage striking.

In game one the players select their characters after the stage has been struck to. If the players cannot agree on which character they will play in game one or believe that they are being counterpicked, either player can call for a double-blind character selection.

For a double blind pick to take place, both players agree on a neutral adjudicator. Both players then communicate in secret which character they intend to play in game one to this neutral party. The adjudicator then reveals which character both players selected. They are then locked to this character for game one.

Modified Daves Stupid Rule (MDSR) is in effect: You cannot counterpick the LAST stage you won on in a set.

Advanced Slob Picks (ASP) is in effect: Subsequent games will begin with the previous winner banning N stages (game specific) from the list of available stages (random plus counterpick), then the previous loser selects a stage, then the previous winner selects their character, finally the previous loser selects their character.

A player can select a stage that they themselves banned earlier in that set.

Any stage can be selected for play if all players are informed and agree to its selection.

Stalling tactics such are banned unless used for recovery.

Wobbling is allowed up to 250%.


4 Stock
8 Minutes
No Items
1 stage ban (No bans in best of 5 sets)

If the timer runs out the player with the most stock left wins. In case of a stock tie the player with the lowest percentage wins. If the percentages are tied, the players will play a 1 stock, 3 minute game to settle the tie - this is to be played on the neutral stage (the stage struck to in game 1).Repeat these rules until there is a winner.

Stagestriking will be used for game one. How does stagestriking work:

Whichever player has control decides who strikes first. The first player can strike a stage from the 5 random stages. Then the second player strikes 2 stages followed by the first player striking 1 more stage. One stage from the random stages will remain and this stage will be played for the first match.

Random Stages (Singles):

Dream Land 64
Final Destination
Yoshi Story
Fountain of Dreams

Counterpicks (Singles):

Pokémon Stadium

Rules for teams:

Team attack is on. Due to lag issues Fountain of Dreams will be replaced by Pokemon Stadium in the random stages. Kongo Jungle 64 is the counterpick stage in Doubles.
All other rules are the same as singles.
