GENESIS 3 (sometimes stylized as GEN3SIS) was the 3rd edition of the GENESIS tournament series. It took place in San Jose, California, on January 15th to 17th, 2016.[1][2] The event hosted both singles and doubles tournaments for Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in addition to a "Smash Draft Melee Crew Battle", as part of a community Compendium.[3][4] With 3,592 attendees across six tournaments, GENESIS 3 currently stands as one of the largest overall Smash tournaments to date, with over 1,000 entrants for both Melee and Smash 4, as well as the first Smash 64 tournament with over 200 entrants (238).[5]

On December 28th, 2015, it was announced by the GENESIS 3 staff that a seeding system would be implemented for both Melee and Smash 4 singles tournaments, which would allow 64 seeded players from Melee, and 32 from Smash 4 to bypass the first round of pools, by floating these players further in the bracket.[6][7] The announcement was followed by immediate backlash from the community and many known tournament organizers, which expressed concerns regarding tournament integrity and the criteria for seeding those players.[8][9][10][11] On December 29th, the GENESIS 3 staff made a formal announcement on Facebook detailing the reasoning behind the decision to seed players from both tournaments, while also announcing that it would no longer seed players for Smash 4, but keep the decision to seed players for Melee.[12][13][14][15]

On January 8th, 2016, it was announced on Twitter that GENESIS 3 was partnered with Nintendo of America.[16]

Melee: S2J vs Abate[edit]

This portion of the Suite was played out because of S2J CaptainFalconHeadSSBM.png losing to Abate LuigiHeadSSBM.png at The Big House 5, with the set infamously ending with the ceiling glitch. S2J won the set 4–2.

A set between Nintendude IceClimbersHeadSSBM.png and HugS SamusHeadSSBM.png was also planned, but cancelled due to Nintendude opting to practice before facing Mew2King in bracket.

Additionally, a $1,000 money match between Leffen FoxHeadSSBM.png and Westballz FalcoHeadSSBM.png was planned, but was cancelled, as Leffen was unable to attend GENESIS 3.

  • GENESIS 3 is the second tournament to surpass 1,000 entrants on more than one game, succeeding EVO 2015, while preceding EVO 2016.
  • GENESIS and Apex are the only tournament series to have hosted at least one of the largest Smash tournaments for each of the four main games (excluding Project M).
  • GENESIS 3 took place at the same time and in the same venue as Furcon 2016.
  • GENESIS 3 Melee Singles Grand Finals was a repeat of the last two editions, with Armada and Mango facing off.
    • There were also several other key similarities between GENESIS 3 and the first two editions:
      • Not only did Mango and Armada face off in Grand Finals, but Mango came from Losers bracket while Armada was in Winners, as with the first two editions.
      • Mango was taken out by an Arizona player in Winners bracket (Axe), and defeated said Arizona player in a rematch in Losers bracket decisively. This is parallel to GENESIS 2, where Mango was defeated in Winners by Taj and defeated him later in Losers bracket.
      • Mango defeated Hungrybox in Losers Finals to advance to Grand Finals, as with GENESIS.
        • Mango also defeated Hungrybox in Losers bracket at GENESIS 2, although it was not in Losers Finals.
