This web application/site was primarly created to give an overview over the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 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.
In the meantime it now also provides an almost complete list of swiss smashers with relevant stats, player data, rankings and roles.
With the help of the start.gg API and with self written web crawler programs, that runs once every night, SwissSmash is able to find and list all the SSBU tournaments in Switzerland that were added to either one of the following sites:
The calendar shows all found SSBU tournaments in switzerland from two weeks ago and four months into the future. It distinguishes between the following tournament types:
Weekly -> On swisssmash.ch created weekly tournament
Internal -> On swisssmash.ch created tournament
External -> On an external site created tournament
Power Ranking (PR)
A tournament will be considered an official SwissSmash tournament and will count to the PR when the following requirements are met:
- Announced at least 2 weeks before its start date on swisssmash.ch or on the Swiss Smash Discord tournaments channel
- A minimum of 16 attendees
- Reasonable seeding
- Enough lagless setups with decent sitting opportunities
- Must be held on a weekend and with reasonable start and end times
- Weeklies do not count to the PR
SwissSmash.ch contains a web application for the simple creation and administration of smash tournaments.
It is particularly suitable for weeklies, as it allows the generation of several tournaments in a defined period of time.
Are you organising tournaments yourself and would like to use the SwissSmash Tournament Manager? Just add the TO role to your profile!
Because of its free, lagless and easy to use brackets and API, the SwissSmash tournament manager uses Challonge.
The initial seeding is done by generating a player list sorted by skill from all the data on germanysmash.de:
The final seeding is done manually by a TO.
Besides the results (match scores and rankings) of the SwissSmash Tournament Manager internal tournaments, swisssmash.ch is also able to get the results from all other tournaments in switzerland. The only condition is, that the tournament was imported on braacket.com in the SSBU CH PRs league.
Regardless of the number of participants per tournament, the players rank at the end of a tournament decides the received amount of points.
