Stage Striking

Players/teams eliminate stages from the Starters stagelist until one stage remains. The player/team who strikes first may be determined by RPS (rock, paper, scissors) best of one. The winning player/team strikes the first stage. Then the other player/team strikes two stages. Then the winning player/team strikes one more stage, and the remaining stage is used for the first game of the set.


After each game of the set, the player who won the previous game will select their character, followed by the player who lost the previous game.

After each game of the set, before counterpicking, the player who won the previous game may ban three stages from the stagelist. These bans are game-long and do not persist after a single game. The loser of the previous game then chooses from the remaining stages.

Self-Destruct Moves & Sudden Death

The results screen will determine the winner if a game ends with a self-destruct move. If a sudden death occurs, a standard sudden death play-off game applies. If a game goes to Sudden Death, the winner is determined by stocks and percentage at the time the game ends. If both players are tied in stocks, the player with the lower percentage is the winner. In the event of a percentage tie, or a game in which both players lose their last stock simultaneously, a 1-stock tiebreaker will be played with a 3-minute time limit. The results of an in-game 300% Sudden Death do not count. This process is repeated if Sudden Death occurs in a Sudden Death game.
