This web application/site was primarly created to give an overview over the Super Smash Bros. scene in switzerland and to provide a tournament organizer (TO) a simple tool to manage their tournaments.
It shall also present an entry point for new players to find their respective local smash community.

The final seeding is done manually by a TO or his/her representatives.
