Game Rules

Super Smash Bros Melee (GC/Wii):
– All matches are Best out of 3 until Top 8, where each match will be Best out of 5.
– 4 stocks, 8 minutes.
– Items are set to “off” and “none”
– Wobbling is legal. Infinites must end at 300%, otherwise it becomes stalling.
– Stalling is banned.
– Coaching mid-match is banned.
– You cannot re-select a stage you have won on as a counterpick.
– You can switch controller ports on your counterpick only.
Controller ports will be decided by players. If there is a conflict, a game of RPS should settle the dispute.
– Neutral Spawn Points: Players may elect to use neutral spawn points to decide controller ports for the first match in case of any disputes.
– If a player pauses in the middle of a game (unless by request of a TO), that player must lose his/her current stock.
– A match ending in simultaneous death does not go to the initiator. If the result is sudden death from this, use the normal tiebreaking rules (below) to determine the winner. Otherwise use who the game declared the winner.
– If the timer runs out, the winner is determined first by stock, then by percentage. If there is a tie in both stock and percentage, then follow the tie-breaking procedures outlined below.

Tie-breaking Procedure
– In the event of a tie game (stock and percentages are equal when the clock runs out, or a simultaneous K.O happens that is not resolved by the game), a 1 stock, 3 minute game will be played.
– If this match results in another tie, a 1 stock, no time limit game will be played to determine the winner.
