Information

Here you'll find some general information about swisssmash.ch and the SwissSmash scene.

Swisssmash.ch

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.

In the meantime it now also provides quite a big list of swiss smashers with relevant stats, player data and rankings.

Tournaments

With the help of a self written web crawler program, 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:

Calendar

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 will be 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

Results

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 Swiss Ultimate Tournaments league.

Bracket tool

Because of its free, lagless and easy to use brackets and API, the SwissSmash tournament manager uses Challonge for now.

Ranking system

Regardless of the number of participants per tournament, the players rank at the end of a tournament decides the amount of points he or she receives.

Rank Points

2nd 250
3rd 200
4th 150
5th-6th 100
7th-8th 75
9th-12th 50
13th-16th 25
17th-24th 15
25th-32nd 10
>32nd 5

Bracket seeding

The initial seeding is done by generating a player list sorted by skill from all the data on SwissSmash.ch:

player_skill = points/participations + wins/(wins+losses)*100 + participations + self_assessment/5 + tournament_experience/10

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