Last tournament was the first tournament of Fight To The Finish Season 2. The tournament took a while, but the wait was worth it as  the tournament ran at a decent pace with a balanced turnout. In the end, Shadow5594 managed to snatch first place with Little Mac of all characters, Gman caused a bracket reset, but could only get second place, Mankey left falling into third place, and FinalChaos ended up in 4th place. Anyway, welcome to Fight To The Finish #17 where things are only getting started.

"Speaking of a long absence, you realize that you haven’t chatted with your Smash friends in forever so you call up the friend that helped you train for the duel with your rival. After some catching up and reminiscing in good times, your friend informs you of a regional tournament. The regional tournament is called “Make It Rain Pain” and is hosted by Mr. Money. After hearing this news you think about entering the tournament realizing you can destroy everyone. You confidently assure your friend that you can win the tournament and would love to attend it with him. After the call your friend starts preparing despite the tournament being months away, while you sit back and watch some television."

-Make sure to save replays, if a dispute between results happens I cannot solve it without proper proof.

-Lag is a case by case scenario, but if you start lagging refer to our lag scale here:


STARTERS (For game 1, players either strike: 1-2-1, or agree on a stage):

-Final Destination / Omegas


-N64 Kirby’s Dreamland [Replace with Lylat Cruise if neither player has it].


-Town and City

COUNTERPICKS (For games 2 onward, the winner of the previous game bans two stages from Starters + Counterpicks and the loser picks from the remaining stages):

-Lylat Cruise

-Duck Hunt


-Skyloft (I am currently experimenting with Skyloft, due to enough requests and some stage analysis, I decided to add it to the stage list for now, this may change at a later time, but for now it’s a counterpick).
