S.A.M.E 2021, or Still. Arranging. Melee. Events 2021, is an ongoing online European Super Smash Bros. Melee circuit directed by SmashEurope and sponsored by Beyond the Summit and Poilon Software. A total of ten tournaments, one per month, will be held and will feature singles, doubles, and a crew battle. The finale will be held in November. All tournaments are set to be online and will use Project Slippi.
On April 19th, 2021, it was announced that the points leader after Fête Online would be invited to Smash Summit 11. On May 25th, 2021, it was announced that a change in CDC quarantine requirements meant that Fête Online's date was too close to Smash Summit 11. The qualification parameter was then updated so that the points leader after Smash Sauna Online, that being Pipsqueak, would qualify for Smash Summit 11. Frenzy, the only other player within qualifying distance before the qualification change, was offered flight and entry to an upcoming European offline tournament as compensation.
List of tournaments
The circuit was initially planned to run to the end of December, however with the return off offline competitive play, Heir Online and Somnio were cancelled while the dates for Teaghlach and Bagarre were shifted. A special tournament specifically for the remaining crew battles will take place in October.
In each tournament, the crews in each pool will face off against each other in a round robin format. The top 4 crews of each pool will compete in the December finale.
