You guys love Super Smash Bros, the staff members love Super Smash Bros, everyone loves Super Smash Bros! And in what better way could we celebrate our love for Nintendo's infamous fighting game franchise than by holding a tournament?! That's right! In March 2019, we will be having our first Super Smash Bros. Online Tournament! Hype!
All in the spirit of „Everyone is here!“, everyone has a chance to participate, it doesn't matter if you play the game on a competitive level or just casually with friends. The most important thing is having fun while playing!

After that, we will randomly draw 32 participants and put them into groups A-H, with 4 participants in each group. We will also draw 10 more participants for the reserve bench, who may take the place of a player in the group phase should they not be able to play their set or don't show up at all.
It is mandatory for registration to be a member of MVGL, as well as of our Discord server, since communication regarding the tournament will happen there.
