This week brought some exciting news for Super Smash Bros. fans, with both current-gen versions getting updated to version 1.1.0. That meant paid DLC in both versions, but on Wii U also delivered YouTube replay uploads and online Tourneys. We know how the Tourneys work and have been competing online, but there are question marks over whether it's the mode that fans truly wanted.

Reaction online has been distinctly mixed - on the one hand we have a mode that has been in demand for some time, but the restrictions aren't all welcome. Knockout action is limited to regular tournaments, and these official contests are also the only place for competitive 1v1 action; such is the popularity of 1v1 For Glory Regular Tourneys that getting into one requires good luck and a fair bit of waiting, as only a handful of events run on 5-minute intervals. Custom Tourneys, on the other hand, are similar in structure to community tournaments in Mario Kart 8.

Of course, complaints are often expressed more vocally online than quiet approval, so we want to know what you make of the Tourney mode in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Let us know in the polls and comments section below - are you happy with the new arrival, underwhelmed or downright angry?
