How was this person able to put pieces through each other?

Hacks. No seriously, probably a USB Gecko or Ocarina or whatever they're called to hack the game. It can allow a lot of things like unrestricted camera angles as well as completely free placement of stage pieces. Really surprised that Smash Service accepted a hacked stage.

Alright, so every year at our school we organise a fundraising day and I'm looking to set up a brawl tournament with a prize at the end to see who is the best smash player there, the winner has to go through me at the end though :)

So anyway, I've never hosted or played in a tournament with Brawl and I'm wondering for some of the tournament players here, what are the best rules to implement? Depending on the number of entrants, should the tourney be 1 on 1 or 4 person battle royale? Is it better to use stock or time (stock can lead to people hiding/running away while others fight, while time does not always determine the best player because of people stealing kills)? Is the tournament mode in the game handy, or can it lead to issues? Items or no items? All stages or just final destination/standard stages?

Advice is greatly appreciated

Never do battle royal. NEVER

Stock with time on.

Tournament mode in the game isnt that great. Manually create the brackets.

Stage dont really matter if this isn't a supar serious one. Keep em all on so that noone complains and you get more entrants. Entrants = money

Alright thanks Arek. In that case I'll cap the entry at 32 players. That will make it 30 matches played. If I do 3 stock and 3 minutes it should leave people enough time to beat each other up and it means it can't go for more than an hour and a half which is perfect. $5 a player will raise $160. Awesome.

3 minutes might be a little short. You don't want the match to end on time. It's there as more of a deterrent to stop players from wasting your time.

What is this? To me that sounds completely arrogant. Are you a bonus feature? A privilege? No offense man, but I think that kind of thing is too elitist.

yeah, that sounds extremely arrogant. you shouldn't be the final boss of your own tournament...and i sincerely hope this doesn't mean that if you win you get the prize even after your opponent has torn through the bracket. that'd just be dumb.

I can't beat Arek in a fair match. I got a bullshit win on lag but anyone can do that. Still haven't played any of you guys. I'm not on as much anymore, but try me tomorrow or Friday @ 10pm eastern time.

I interpreted that as more of an exhibition than part of the tournament.

The winner would most definitely beat him anyway.

Haha settle down guys, it's just like this, in every single way. Was just a fun match at the end and he was always going to get the prize anyway. And yes the stupid Metaknight beat my Lucas. The final came down to Samus vs MetaKnight, I was hoping a MK wouldn't win the tourney, but I guess how that's how it is most of the time.

Only if he makes a dramatic entrance and exposits some ridiculous premise for setting up the tournament in the first place

So people are still playing this?

I have a tourney to play at the beginning of May. Haven't played it for a long while now, so I'll have to shape up beforehand. Living in MN makes competition not as rough as some other places though :P

Offline, yes. Sometimes, anyway. College gets in the way a lot, and I only have one opponent right now so matches tend to get... repetitive.

I should record a few more matches anyway. See what you guys think.

Ah yes brawl+ i've been thinking about having a go at that to see how things have changed/improved. Might even be able to get my brother to play it again due to that no random tripping code.
