Smash 64 combo contest
Each contestant gets 2 minutes to perform a combo. They can use any character, any stage, and any item. Once the two minutes are up, or when the contestant finishes his or her combo, five judges rate the combo, giving it a number between 1-10. Those points are totalled up into a final number. The higher the score, the better chance in moving on.
In the first round, the top four contestants move on. In the second round, the top two contestants move on. In the final round, both contestants have to do two combos. Although total points are recorded, whoever moves on is chosen solely through said round's points.
The VOD for the event has over two million views on YouTube, and was formerly the most viewed video on VGBootCamp's main channel. A video for the "Top 5 Combo Contest Combos" on VGBootCamp Melee's channel also has over two million views, is the most viewed video on VGBootCamp Melee, and was formerly the most viewed video across all of VGBootCamp's channels.
