The starter stage that is played in the first match of a set is determined through stage striking. Who strikes a stage first is based on a random coin flip. The order will go W-L-L-W, so that only one starter stage is left. The leftover stage is the stage that will be played on. After the first match of a set, counterpick stages become available.
The loser of a match in a set will be allowed to select any legal stage the next match that they have not won on, with the exception of two stages that the winner of the previous match can ban if desired from being chosen for just the upcoming match.

If one does not check-in, thirty (30) minutes after the tournament is due to begin without prior notice, they will automatically be considered as forfeiting. If a player's teammate is not present, they may choose to continue alone, or forfeit the tournament.

It is not necessary, though highly recommended that team members use costumes of the same or somewhat similar color as the team they are playing for, such as a green costume for Chrom and a green costume for Pikachu on Green Team.

One fighter only may be used per tournament. Games will be played in a best-of-three format, excluding the final set, where the finals will be played in a best-of-five. Scores will be recorded by how many games in a set are won.
