Super Smash Bros. Special," or "Smash Bros. SP" for the Nintendo Switch, is a fighting action game that is popular all over the world.
The Smash Bros. team was also seen fighting a huge battle at the EVO, an e-sports fighting tournament.
The official Nintendo tournament "Championnat de France Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 2019" hosted by Nintendo France has announced the banning of Terry Bogart and the heroes.
URL of the tournament https://smash-etc2019-1.junglr.io
Is the tournament URL official Nintendo?
The domain "junglr.io" is similar to "funglr" but has nothing to do with funglr.
I checked the whois and it was acquired in January 2019, registrar is OVH and the country of registration is France.
No further information could be confirmed. In recent years, due to GDPR, it has become commonplace for Whois information to be hidden.
Therefore, we could not confirm whether the domain belongs to Nintendo or Nintendo France, or to the hosting company.
By the way, the server was AWS.
Characters added after September 23 = Terry Bogart banned.
Characters added after September 23rd are banned, naturally Terry Bogart (Fatal Wolf Legend), who will be added in November, is also banned.
However, since the tournament will start on September 29, it seems a natural decision to ban characters that will be added after the tournament has started.
Is the heroic ban due to randomness?
The hero is a character with a lot of randomness, such as the "attack of the sea" or the lack of a certain command, so there is a gambling element to the game.
While this randomness adds to the fun of the game, it does not dispel the concern that the competition will be severely lacking in fairness.
There are local rules restricting the use of certain characters, but with restrictions on official tournaments as well, which we did not expect, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the bravest of the brave.
Some on Twitter are calling it a language issue.
The replies to Nintendo France's official Twitter feed are filled with a variety of opinions from players.
Besides the randomness, they point to language issues, but the reasons are not clear.
À cause de la barrière de la langue
