Director(s) Keitaro

SKTAR 2 was a Super Smash Bros. Brawl national tournament directed by Keitaro on August 3rd-4th, 2013. The tournament was an Apex 2014 qualifier. Like the previous SKTAR, it featured international competition, with players such as Mr. R and ZeRo attending.

The tournament has become known for its upsets; heavily-favored players to win the tournament such as Salem, Mr. R, Nairo, Vinnie, Ally, and ZeRo were knocked into Losers' bracket earlier than expected by supposedly lower-level players. Among the most notable placings included MVD placing 2nd, defeating Vinnie and Ally, Denti placing 3rd, taking a set off of Nairo, Nakat placing 4th, beating Tyrant and ZeRo, Zinoto placing 5th, defeating Tyrant, Nick Riddle, and Atomsk, and Will placing 9th, taking sets off of Salem and Mr. R. ZeRo, the most heavily-favored player to win the tournament, placed only 5th, and there were no Meta Knight players in the top 4 placings. Nakat and False also took 2nd place in doubles. Nairo and ADHD took 1st in teams, defending their title from Apex 2013, and did not lose a single game after being knocked into losers' bracket by Nick Riddle and Shaky. Some of the most notable money matches included Seibrik defeating Salem in a best of 7 $50 match (with around $300 in side bets), and Tony T defeating MechWarrior in a charity event. All the money raised for the fundraiser was donated to Autism Speaks.

ADHD's last-second timeout victory over ZeRo was regarded as one of the most intense sets of the tournament, and it led to debate over whether the eight minute time limit used in Brawl tournaments was too short. Owing to the debate, some Brawl tournaments now use a ten minute timer over an eight minute timer, though the eight minute timer is still in effect for a majority of such tournaments.

Ruleset [1][edit]

SKTAR 2 used a ruleset similar to the E4U tournament series' ruleset.

1 v 1 rules:

  • 3 stocks.
  • 8 minute timer.
  • No items.
  • Percentage and stage are the same if the match is restarted.
  • All Characters are allowed.
  • 2/3 wins to win a set.
  • One stage ban per player.

Team rules:

  • Team hosting is red and other is blue.
  • 2/3 wins to win a set.

Conduct rules:

  • Pausing may be turned off by request and the request cannot be denied. In the event pause is on and is pressed, whether by accident or on purpose, the result will be a loss of the current stock for the perpetrating player.
  • Playing a set match before being told to play the match will result in penalty.
  • BYOC (Bring your own controller)
  • Players who use the Wii Remote must take the batteries out of the Wii Remote when not playing. If the Wii Remote is still synced up to a Wii with the batteries in, this could unintentionally disrupt a match. If problems persist, a DQ may happen.
  • Intentional forfeiting, match fixing, splitting, and any other forms of bracket manipulation is not allowed and punishable by the TO.
  • No subbing is allowed for singles or doubles.
  • Coaching is allowed only between games, not during. Failure to adhere to this will lead to punishment at the TO’s discretion, which could include the removal from the venue
  • Collusion of any kind with competitors is considered cheating. If the tournament director determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally underperforming, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified. This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.

Determining controller ports/stage strike:

  • If there is a dispute in controller port selection or initiating stage strike the following method is used:
  • Teams agree to Rock-Paper-Scissors, otherwise it is determined with a coin-flip. The winning team shall either elect to have first choice in port selection or first choice in stage strike. Whichever team does not receive first choice in Port Selection will be compensated with first choice in Stage Striking.
  • In doubles, port selection is ordered 1-2-2-1 fashion (with Team-1 having first choice in controller slot select, Team-2 having both second and third choice, and the final slot going to Team-1).
