12-year-old Jennifer Yu is the first American girl in 27 years to win a title at the World Youth Chess Championship after going undefeated in 11 matches.

Susan Polgar, who was the first woman to earn a men’s grandmaster title, has been pushing for more females to succeed in chess. “We’re getting there, slowly but surely,” she stated after Yu won the title.

THIS DECEMBER.

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.

THE BIGGEST SUPER SMASH BROS. WORLD TOURNAMENT THIS SITE HAS EVER SEEN.

This isn’t like your average Starmen.net event. 

You don’t have to be an American to full enjoy some of the things happening and you won’t have to stay awake at night to do so.

NO SIREE

This tournament will be split in different regions: ASIA, AMERICA, EUROPE.

America is TOO BIG? _*WE SPLIT THAT THING UP*_. 

That’s right. The tournament(s) will follow a time schedule way more time-zone friendly than usual. Do you have what it takes to be the best of your continent?

Due to the small amount of possible participants, Australia (and maybe Asia) could be absorbed in the bigger groups of Europe and America considering a time-zone friendlier to you.

Pretty neat huh?

BUT I’M NOT DONE WITH YOU YET

THINK YOU’RE THE BEST AROUND JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE THE BEST IN YOUR CONTINENT? SAY THAT TO THE WORLD’S FACE.

That’s right. The top players of every tournament will face off in a STARMEN.NET ALL STAR BATTLE to find out who’s the best Smasher in the whole site.

There will be *PRIZES*. Oh boy. Lots of ‘em.

And to manage the whole thing, we have already some well-known names!

Some might not be 100% but heck. We still have lots of things to do with this.

For AMERICA we have Sith and Absoltastic + Boots and SimonBob (?) for CANADA.

For EUROPE we have Marcotto and Mr. Nameless

For ASIA we have Cyan

More might come, and you’ll love them.

This tournament is open to all level of skills, and don’t worry if you don’t make it to ALL-STAR, we’ll have something else for you. This is tournament is about FUN. So no stage or characters will be banned. 

Only ALL STAR will have FD stages and no-items.  

Starting this week, until December 1st, you can enter the tournament in the registration topic that will soon appear in the GameGab forum. 

In order to do so, you’ll need a 3DS and a Super Smash Bros. for 3ds copy by December 1st. We will check if everyone who entered has the game. 

In fact, as soon as you have the game, please, inform us, and we’ll add a tick to the list.

SO, ARE YOU READY TO SMASH?

PS: IN ORDER TO ENTER YOU HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF STARMEN.NET AND OVER 13
