On Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019, Nintendo announced their very first European championship for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with some weird choice of rules.
First of all, the Smash Ball’s turned on, so everyone has access to their full-power Final Smash.While this seems like an odd choice (given that there’s the option to use the FS Meter), it’s probably a decision made with spectators in mind. Additionally, the formats supported by the championship are not the usual 1v1. Along with the often seen 2v2 tournament format, the european championship will include 3v3 Squad Strike and Smashdown brackets.
While the rules presented by Nintendo are certainly not what we expected, it’s still an interesting choice that could prove to be a fun event to watch. With players from many european countries competing, it seems like the perfect opportunity for players to get their chance in the spotlight.
