The Battle of BC is one of the bigger tournaments for Super Smash Bros. Despite the recent changes to the tournament guidelines, the organizers have confirmed that the Battle of BC 6 will still take place in March 2024. While some tournaments have been cancelled or modified due to the stricter rules, the Battle of BC 6 has managed to secure a license for the event, giving them more freedom to operate. This is great news for fans and players who were worried about the future of Smash tournaments.
In light of the changes to the tournament guidelines, many tournaments are now required to register for licenses from Nintendo. The Battle of BC 6 is one of the tournaments that have successfully obtained a license, allowing them to continue with their plans. This means that we can still expect to see top Smash players competing in this event.
While smaller tournaments may be heavily impacted by the new guidelines, the fact that many organizers are able to obtain licenses from Nintendo is a positive sign. If more organizers can secure licenses for their events, it suggests that Smash will be able to continue hosting big tournaments despite the stricter restrictions imposed by the developers. This is encouraging news for the Smash community and shows that the Battle of BC 6 is just the beginning of many more exciting events to come.
