Match Procedure

1. Players select their characters. Either player may choose to Blind Pick. In this case, each player secretly tells a third player their character before picking with the third player verifying their selections.

2. Players play Rock-Paper-Scissors. Winner chooses between selecting controller port or first Stage Strike

3. Players take turns removing stages from the Neutral Stages list above based upon the results of the previous rule. The first player to strike removes one(1) stage from the list, the second player removes two(2), and the first player then chooses from the remaining two(2) stages.

4. The players play the first match of the set

5. Winning player of the preceding match bans a stage from the full list of stages, both Neutral and Counter-Pick. Does not apply to Best of 5 sets.

6. The Losing player of the preceding match picks a stage for the next match. Cannot choose the stage banned in the previous step, nor a stage they've already won on during this set, unless agreed.

7. The winning player of the preceding match may choose to change characters.

8. The losing player of the preceding match may choose to change characters.

9. The losing player of the preceding match may change their controller port.

If a match ends with a player's suicide move that results in a draw (Ganon's flame choke, Bowser's koopa claw, etc.) the win will go to the initiator of the move. This will only apply to characters that have suicide moves that would end the match resulting in a draw. If you die before the opponent does, you lose.

First stage is decided by each player banning one stage from the starters list and playing on the remaining stage that was not banned.
