Nintendo and tournaments – (k) a love story
Nintendo has a more than a conflicting story with the tournament organization Evo and Smash Brothers tournaments in general. In 2013, for example, you had tried to keep Evo from streaming a super Smash Brothers Melee tournament. This attempt met with great protest of the Melee-Fangemeinde and Nintendo returned the original decision.

Nevertheless, Nintendo had threatened numerous other organizations with legal consequences if they use such modifications for Melee or Brawl .
