We now have the Apex ruleset for SSB4, should we make a page for that? 15:47, 13 January 2015 (EST)

No; making individual pages for each large tournament would be tiresome and create a huge amount of redundancy. Folding everything into Tournament legal (SSB4) under general terms is fine. Anything particularly noteworthy can be described on the Apex tournament page itself. And after all else, just link to the ruleset itself. Zowayix (talk) 00:49, 3 January 2016 (EST)

Attempting to lower redundancy[edit]

Almost all of the Tournament legal pages repeat various rules over and over, including stuff that applies to every Smash game ever such as player conduct/behavior, pausing, Dave's Stupid Rule, character/stage selection procedures, etc.
Proposal: For rules that apply to all Smash games, move them into this article (or alternately, create a template to be included in each of the individual game articles). Then each individual game page can just cover the rules that are specific to that game, such as ledge grab limits in Brawl and customs in Smash 4. There's no need to repeat what kinds of player conduct are acceptable in each and every page, all of them inevitably becoming worded slightly differently. Even the Apex 2015 official rulebook does it like this. Thoughts? Zowayix (talk) 00:57, 3 January 2016 (EST)
