An online tournament of "Super Smash Brothers Melee", welcoming players of all skill levels.
Thanks to recent community effort, online play is virtually lag-free: https://twitter.com/Fizzi36/status/1275096470765490176
We will likely hold the tournament in gather.town for proximity chat.
We may casually encourage "academic speed-dating" throughout. For example, we might suggest that players discuss research with each other after their match is done, but before their next match begins.
If the players decide to share their screens, spectators will be able to watch the game or join in discussion.
As the tournament progresses, people will be free to play against others in a non-competitive environment.
