This website was created to provide an overview of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scene in the UK & Ireland and to provide an entry point for new players to find their way into their local smash community.
In addition, the website offers a tournament manager who provides tournament organizers (TOs) with a simple tool for managing tournaments.
The page was created from the template by www.swisssmash.ch and is primarily maintained by: Yomi (developer).
With the help of the start.gg API and a self written web crawler program, that runs once every night, SmashUltimate.uk is able to find and list all the SSBU tournaments in the UK & Ireland that were added to either one of the following sites:
The calendar shows all found SSBU tournaments in the UK & Ireland from two weeks ago and four months into the future. It distinguishes between the following tournament types:
Weekly -> On SmashUltimate.uk created weekly tournament
Internal -> On SmashUltimate.uk created tournament
External -> On an external site created tournament
Power Ranking (PR)
The UK & Ireland PR is published biannually with each season generally lasting 6 months.
As a basis for the rankings, there is a live ranking spreadsheet known as the Boma Rankings (BomasUKRankings). The PR Panel, which is formed of experienced TOs and players as representatives of each region, determine the PR at the end of each season.
SmashUltimate.uk contains a web application for the simple creation and administration of smash tournaments.
It is particularly suitable for weeklies, as it allows the generation of several tournaments in a defined period of time.
Are you organising tournaments yourself and would like to use the SmashUltimate.uk Tournament Manager? Just add the TO role to your profile!
Because of its free, lagless and easy to use brackets and API, the SmashUltimate.uk Tournament Manager uses Challonge.
The initial seeding is done by generating a player list sorted by skill from all the data on SmashUltimate.uk:
The final seeding is done manually by a TO.
Besides the results (match scores and rankings) of the SmashUltimate.uk Tournament Manager internal tournaments, SmashUltimate.uk is also able to get the results from all other tournaments in the UK & Ireland. The only condition is, that the tournament was imported on braacket.com in the SSBU UK PRs league.
Regardless of the number of participants per tournament, the players rank at the end of a tournament decides the received amount of points.
