Crew Battle

Here are the rule sets for both the Melee and Brawl crew battle.


Random select list:

  • Final Destination
  • Battlefield
  • Dreamland 64

Stages available for counterpick:

  • Yoshi’s Story
  • Fountain of Dreams
  • Pokemon Stadium


The character a player will use shall be determined at a prior time and conveyed to the Apex 2013 staff. The only exception to this rule is if an opposing crew’s player decides to counterpick stage rather than random select, then the “defending” player may choose to switch character upon hearing the counterpick stage.

  • 32 stocks
  • No timer will be displayed, as the match will continue until one player loses all their stocks.
  • Items are set to off
  • Wobbling is banned
  • Port priority: If an agreement cannot be made as to who gets what port, the players may enact a best of 1 game of Rock Paper Scissors. Winner gets their port selection, loser selects any other port.
