The term legal stage can also be used to describe any neutral step or counter-step or equivalent step that is not prohibited. These steps rarely appear, but can occur during certain events from time to time. Most of the time, however, they are only banned. Be sure to check your tournament rules and suspended steps before training at any of these levels. As with Brawl, there is no unified stagelist for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with some differences and disagreements over scene categories between areas. The following table generally uses the most commonly accepted legality for each step. Despite the list of prohibited levels, most tournaments offer a variant of the « gentleman`s rule, » a rule that allows players to choose any level they want, including prohibited levels if all players in the game agree. This is usually the only way for suspended stages to watch serious tournament matches.
But even when this rule is in force, it is rarely useful to play on locked scenes outside of a much more qualified player that allows an opposing player, rather random or very young to choose the level he wants, since most competitive players never voluntarily want to play the forbidden levels, for the same reasons, whose rules blocked them. Even if the rule is in effect, TOs can still prohibit certain levels from being played via the gentleman rule if the scene tends to delay the tournament by causing much longer games (such as Temple, New Pork City, and The Great Cave Offensive). In general, due to the wide variety between stages and scene types, and the fact that the series as a whole was not necessarily designed for serious competitive play, very few steps are balanced enough to be legal for professional competitive play, which is why the majority of stages are prohibited in all games. After each match in the set, the winning player can exclude two levels from the available choices. The loser of the first part then chooses from the remaining phases. The following is smash 64`s blacklist for stages in tournaments. Until mid-2015, four phases – Dream Land, Hyrule Castle, Congo Jungle and Peach`s Castle – were legal. Currently, Dream Land is the only stage that can be used in tournaments. However, as tournaments move from the vanilla version of the game to the 19XX mod, in some tournaments such as GENESIS 5 or GENESIS 6, the Duel Zone and Final Destination levels, which were not available without hacking, saw some duplicate tournament presence, although this is usually rare. All competitively used steps also always disable dangers and level transformations to remove RNG from the game. This gives levels like Pokémon Stage 2 the chance to be potentially viable. I kind of wonder what people generally think are the legal stages of the tournament, or the stages that are systematically used in competition.
Can someone please give me their list? Thanks for Counterpicks, the winner of the previous game beats 2 legal levels after character selection and the loser chooses one of the others. After the first battle, the losing player can now choose a Counterpick level. These are stages that may not be starting stages, but in most tournaments they can be selected as counter-peaks in addition to the starting stages mentioned above, which can also be used as counter-peaks: in most cases, each tournament organizer or the Smash community can have their own idea of which ones are achievable, and most will likely use different levels, depending on where you`re going. Therefore, we recommend that you ask your local competitor community what their legal steps are before attempting to enter a contest. Smash Ultimate`s competitive scene competes with itself when it comes to deciding which levels are legal for competitive play. Every tournament organizer will have their own idea of which steps are legal and which are not, but these are usually the main steps you should see at events. Prohibited levels cannot be selected at all. Levels can be locked for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: Perhaps the most discussed rules in Ultimate Competitive are the lack of items and the specific levels to play on. There are over 100 stages in Ultimate, but not all of them are legal in tournaments, although there is no generally accepted list of levels at the moment. While Nintendo-sponsored events should have led to a defined set of rules, this was not the case. There are a few potential levels that could be added by other tournament organizers (Skyloft and Delfino Plaza come to mind), but these 11 will likely form the heart of the competitive game.
In addition, we will probably see a few characters that will be locked over time. Some tournaments prohibit certain phases that are allowed in others. Most tournament organizers agree that stages that change in the middle of the fight should be banned. A floating platform is usually allowed and is often seen on popular competition stages such as Smashville. If you want to transform yourself into the next competitive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player, you need to learn more about the different legal steps of the game. In smash Back Room`s current rulebook, all levels are definitely listed as Starter, Counterpick, or Banned Stage, as follows: Brawl had a very fragmented and argumentative community when it came to phases that should be legal. As a result, the legality list of levels is significantly more chaotic than the previous two games, with most levels being controversial in one way or another. In addition, the legal status of a level has been greatly influenced by the legality of Meta Knight, as it tends to receive even more drastic benefits at many marginal levels. Thus, tournaments that have banned Meta Knight tend to allow more levels than tournaments that have kept it legal. In addition, the entire community has never considered the sampling phases in Stage Builder as official phases, and therefore, they are all considered prohibited. Nevertheless, none of the three levels would be theoretically legal in a set of rules: Hole has no tangible rock outcrops from the outside and contains powerful camping in the lower left points; Bath often does not have the lower beamline and has walls that block horizontal beamlines and allow for infinities; and Maze`s irregular design encourages camping, circle camping and stalling, and the architecture of the scene creates caves of life.
A large number of configurations often lack levels, as they interfere with loading mods via the Smash Stack. Counterpick levels can only be chosen after the first part of a set, for example after games 2 and 3 of a best-of-3 set. Levels in this category tend to give some characters a slight, even overwhelming, advantage over others, so it wouldn`t be fair to include them in the neutral list. These levels can often (but not always) be selected for counter-selection purposes, hence the name of the category. In the past, the following levels were legal counter-choices, but are now prohibited: « Legal Phases » refers to the levels and arenas of the game that are considered playable in professional competitive Smash Bros. games. The legality of the scene refers to the playable status of the different levels in traditional tournaments. A total of 11 levels were considered achievable by Genesis for players. Players can choose the five starting levels on the battlefield, the final destination, Lylat Cruise, Pokémon Stadium 2 and Smashville.
Counter-choices for the scene selection include Castle Siege, Kalos Pokemon League, Town & City, Unova Pokemon League, Yoshi`s Story and Yoshi`s Island (Brawl). You can select two levels for a match from the Scene Selection menu by enabling the Scene Morphs option in the ruler settings. Counterpick levels are only available in game 2 and from a single set.
