General Gameplay Rules
– BYOC (Bring your own controller).
– You cannot re-select a stage you have won on as a counterpick.
– Any controller issues found mid-game is your own responsibility. If you need to reset, your opponent will have to agree to a reset as doing so will require you to pause the match.
– Coaching mid-match is banned.
– Stalling is banned.
– 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 tie-breaking 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. Otherwise, follow the tie-breaking rules.

Tie-breaker procedure:
– If there is a tie in both stock and percentage
– 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.
