Smash Wii U Ranbats
Introducing our first ranking battles of Super Smash Bros Wii U by AlaskaGamers, part of our 2015 Ranbats series.
This is a 4 bi-weekly series featuring Super Smash Bros for Wii U. Players will earn points each week based on their tournament placing. At the end of the season, the players with the most points will compete in a playoff bracket for the prize pool!
To reiterate what was mentioned in a recent announcement on our page, “New to this season is the Battle at the Last Frontier Community Fund. A portion of venue fees collected this season will go towards this fund, which will support the Alaska fighting game community’s efforts in growing the scene and hosting major events. By participating in these tournaments, you are helping to ensure bigger and better events in the future! The community fund is managed by AlaskaGamers, who promises to be fully transparent in providing information as to how funds will be used towards future events.” -Ebomb

Counter Pick Stages:
-First stage is decided by banning from the Starter Stages. 1st person to ban will be decided by rock-paper-scissors. Then stage ban will be in P1 (1) P2 (2) P1 (1) and the remaining stage is the stage that is played on.
Then in preceding matches, the winner can ban 1 stage then loser picks a stage.
– If a player pauses the game during a match, he or she must forfeit a stock/round/game. An exception is the “inevitable death rule” which is when a pause occurs during an animation which after ending would result in a stock/round/game. This will be enforced by judges and TO’s.
-Self-Destruct Moves: If a match ends by the use of a successful self-destruct move, the player that initiated the self-destruct move will be the victor of the match. Self-destruct moves only include Ganondorf’s Side B, King Dedede’s Neutral B, Wario’s Neutral B, and Kirby’s Neutral B.
