Zero Challenge 2 (abbreviated as 0C2 or OC2) was a Super Smash Bros. Melee national tournament held by the professional Smash crew Socal Elite 4 in August 2006. The tournament was held in the recreation room of the David L. Baker Memorial Golf Center in Fountain Valley, California, and advertisements included the line "experience the best Smash talent ever aligned at one tournament...including the very best of Japan, Europe, and the rest of the international community."
The tournament received a very high attendance: 192 singles entrants, 98 doubles teams, 38 crews, and 7 international crews.
Zero Challenge 2 featured four main Smash tournaments. The first day's event focused on teams and crews, the second day focuses on international crew battles and the first two pools of singles. The third and final day focused on the continuation of singles matches.
- Singles: Players were randomly assigned into 32 pools. Each entrant played round-robin matches against all other players in their pool. The three players with the best record in each pool advanced to a second set of pools. The top four players in the second pool advanced the 64-player bracket.
- Doubles: All entered teams were placed directly into a very large 98-entrant bracket.
- Any disagreements over controller port assignments were settled by coin toss.
- Teams were to use adjacent port numbers (one team on ports 1 and 2, and the other team on ports 3 and 4).
- Advanced slob picks were in effect.
- All sets were best out of 3, with finals best of 5.
- Players could call a double-blind pick for the first game of a set.
|Final Destination||Fountain of Dreams|
|Pokémon Stadium||Yoshi's Story|
- All other stages are banned. This was a compromise with the Japanese smashers, who usually only play on Final Destination and Dream Land.
- Players were not allowed to ban stages, and the starter stages were chosen randomly.
Zero Challenge 2 was organized by a team of smashers from or otherwise associated with the Socal Elite 4.
