The Summit Champions League, known as the Slippi Champions League during its first season, is an online Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament series directed by Beyond the Summit in conjunction with Project Slippi. The series is split up into seasons, which consist of 4 weekly tournaments. The tournaments are region-locked to the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Format[edit]

The Summit Champions League follows a different format than normal competitive play. Each week there are 2 Divisions, each with 8 players. For the first week of the season, the 16 players competing are invited, while in subsequent weeks players are invited through their performance from the previous week.

In Division 1, 8 players play in a single elimination bracket. The top 4 players remain in the division while the bottom 4 are dropped into Division 1 Relegation. In Division 2, 4 matches are played between the 8 players. The winners of each match move on to Division 1 Relegation while the losers are dropped into Division 2 Relegation.

In Division 1 Relegation, the four players from Division 1 play the four players from Division 2. The winners of each match moves on to Division 1 for the next week while the losers are moved to Division 2 for the next week. In Division 2 Relegation, the players play in 4 open bracket qualifiers. The winners advance to Division 2 for the next week while the losers are knocked out of the tournament series; losers can re-qualify by playing in the following week's open bracket.
