Vayseth Proposes Global Smash Commission


After dropping hints shortly after Frostbite, tournament organizer Alex "Vayseth" Varga has released an official proposal for the Global Smash Commission, an initiative to facilitate communication between regions that have been host to PGR-level tournaments for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The Global Smash Commission will be divided up into nine regions, each with a group discussion platform of some sort with merit-based criteria for entry - for instance, a group might only admit people who have organized or provided regular coverage of some sort for PGR events and top players within the region. Each region will then select a leader to represent them in a group of nine community leaders, which will delegate tasks to be carried out by each group.

The nine regions that will make up the Global Smash Commission are:
  • United States East
  • United States West
  • Japan East
  • Japan West
  • Europe
  • Canada
  • Mexico
  • Middle East
  • Australia
More information is available in Vayseth's proposal. He will also conduct an AMA on r/smashbros on March 2nd at 6 p.m. EST, where he will answer questions from the community about the proposal.

Mere geographic size is not the only factor
Yeah, it's based on the number of tournaments. the US and Japan had the most PGR tournaments compared to any other region by far, so Vayseth felt that giving those two countries only one delegate each would be disproportionately low representation.
US East
US West
Japan East
Japan West

btchplz, California alone is the size of Japan.
Lol, nope. California has a population of 39 million people, Japan has a population of 128 million people, making its population more dense than California's. Geographical size has nothing to do with it, population does.
