This website was created to provide an overview of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scene in Italy 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, ItalySmash is able to find and list all the SSBU tournaments in Italy that were added to either one of the following sites:
The calendar shows all found SSBU tournaments in Italy from two weeks ago and four months into the future. It distinguishes between the following tournament types:
Weekly -> On ItalySmash created weekly tournament
Internal -> On ItalySmash created tournament
External -> On an external site created tournament
Power Ranking (PR)
The power ranking IT uses a combination of algorithm and jury to provide a ranking that is as close as possible to reality.
ItalySmash 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 ItalySmash Tournament Manager? Just add the TO role to your profile!
Because of its free, lagless and easy to use brackets and API, the ItalySmash Tournament Manager uses Challonge.
The initial seeding is done by generating a player list sorted by skill from all the data on ItalySmash:
The final seeding is done manually by a TO.
Besides the results (match scores and rankings) of the ItalySmash Tournament Manager internal tournaments, ItalySmash is also able to get the results from all other tournaments in Italy. The only condition is, that the tournament was imported on braacket.com in the SSBU IT 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.
