Tournament:Smash 'N' Splash 5
Smash 'N' Splash 5 was a national tournament for Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Project M, for both singles and doubles. It was held in Lake Delton, Wisconsin from May 31st-June 2nd, 2019.
On May 6th, 2019, it was announced that Smash 'N' Splash 5 would run a Waterfall Swiss bracket instead of Round Robin. Details about the Waterfall Swiss Bracket can be found here.
The change was met with some controversy. During the tournament, smashers such as Captain L complained that they were sent into Division 3, the lowest division, despite only dropping one set. Furthermore, Lui$ and Atomsk both went 6-0 in their pools, however Lui$ went to Division 1 while Atomsk went to Division 2, causing some backlash on Twitter; Lui$ and Atomsk later agreed to have a Best of 3 match to see who would enter Division 1, with Lui$ securing the victory. Finally, some smashers were wrongfully disqualified due to complications that arose from the format.
