How 3v3 Teams works

Players from the opposing teams then take turns fighting in 1v1 matches, with the winner of a match carrying their remaining stock(s) to face the next member of the opposing team. Stocks lost by the victorious player in a previous match are subtracted from the player's stocks by self-destructing at the beginning of the next match. For example, if Player A defeated the other team's Player B with two stocks remaining, he or she would need to SD until only two stocks remained for the next match against Player C, who starts with full stocks. This continues until one crew runs completely out of stocks, in which case the other crew is the victor.


Match procedure:

  1. Each team designates the first player
  2. Team 1 bans a starter stage*
  3. Team 2 bans 2 of the remaining starter stages
  4. Team 1 picks a stage out of the remaining 2 to play on
  5. Each player then blind picks character for first stage
  6. The players play the first game of the set
  7. Losing team selects new player for next game
  8. Winning player of the previous game bans two stages*
  9. The new player picks a stage for the next game. 
  10. The winning player is character locked and must stay the same character as their previous games
  11. The new player chooses character.
  12. The next game is played
  13. If stocks need to be SD’d, the opponent must wait and the match will start when the timer goes to 9:30
  14. Repeat stage 7-13 until all players on a team are eliminated.


All players must be current students from the same university. 


Teams must have at least 3 players. Teams may add/remove players from team between weeks.


If teams are more than 20 minutes late they will forfeit match.


Check in deadline is 6:30pm. Teams who don't check in will not get games for that evening.
