To better separate small-scale, individually organized community tournaments from their large-scale counterparts, Nintendo released a new set of community tournament guidelines for organizers to follow. The company's new Community Tournament Guidelines states that organizers of small-scale community tournaments can host such events without an official license from Nintendo. However, small-scale community tournaments are limited to 200 participants when done in person or 300 when it's online, while their organizers can't charge spectators a fee when such an event is done online. Small-scale community events can't "generate commercial revenue except as permitted by these guidelines," nor can they have a prize exceeding a market value of $5,000.

Playing for money ruins the games like Smash Ultimate to me. Especially if the tiers are unbalanced and some characters get underplayed.
