About
Our state has a rich history in smash. However, this has only been on a local scene until now. Many players have been left out because they were unaware of any smash scene in Mississippi. That is where MSL comes in. We want to organize and connect local scenes into a collective state wide scene.

Below you can find a complete list all known established smash communities with their contact info. If you do not see a community within your area, please feel free to start one. We would love to support you and help you build that.

You will also notice a calendar with tournament listings. This is a comprehensive list of smash tournaments and events in Mississippi. We try to list as many tournaments as possible but there is a certain requirement an event must meet to be listed. See tournament section below for details.

The first Mississippi Smash League endorsed tournament was a huge a success. Last Saturday, Grenada County Smash League hosted "Straight Outta Tournament Names". Results have not been uploaded yet but stay tuned!

Currently, MSL is only promoting tournaments and being a source for smash players to find scenes and events in MS. However, to grow, we need more scenes and communities, like Grenada, to get active with MSL! We want to promote your Mississippi Smash event! (Monthlies or more frequent events will be promoted but in collective list of all monthlies going on in MS.)

Contact mississippismashleague@gmail.com

P.S. We are also looking for talented people who can be part of our team.

Do you think all the information from the upcoming tournaments and groups be used to update the Mississippi page on SmashWiki? Right now it's really outdated with only 4 Melee smashers. Is keeping that updated something someone wants to do or I can do? Or is that page a lost cause?

Hey I've been wanting to get into competitive smash, specifically melee. What should I do? It is relieving to see that there is an actual smash community down here.

I'm willing to switch for the sake of smash, but do you think local tournaments could possibly become more accepting of melee in the future?

It's less liking/disliking melee and more down to the fact that smash 4 tournaments tend to attract a larger turnout. My area used to feature melee, but the TOs lacked the time to do both tournaments.

We've tried to gage melee interest, but its pretty slim. Most of us don't have the CRTs for it anymore, and i know most of us don't want to deal with the inevitable whining about playing on an lcd, no matter how low the input delay can get. There is more interest for PM, but even then it's not a huge crowd.

We're getting plans together for the 3rd southern discomfort, and so far there hasn't been much of a calling for melee.

Hey guys! You may remember me from MSU Smash dogs back in April. Well I'm back home for the summer in Tupelo, MS and I am currently trying to find a venue to host a smash tournament here. I was wondering who all would be interested in making a trip to Tupelo to compete?

probably depends when it is, for some it might be too far, but i know 100% Sundays are killer for me, due to work weekdays.

Sadly people in MS don't seem too willing to travel much, or now have other circumstances keeping them from being able to travel regularly. Also I would check Facebook and try talk with and get an idea of other tournaments that might be going on. Having 2 going on in the same weekend would just split potential attendance, although i can't think of any that would be going on much over the summer break period.

Hey everyone. Im looking to get into playing smash around the local scene with the intent on improving and atrending some of the local tournaments soonish. Are any of you guys around the columbus/starkville area to either play online with or play at my house to work on improving maybe once or twice a week every so often.
