If you tuned in to Genesis 4 over the weekend, you probably saw some heated exchanges at some point; due to mistakes being made that caused damage to be scaled back by .1%, there was no shortage of controversy in two separate matches during Super Smash Bros. for Wii U’s top 8.

Both Japanese player Komorikiri and Dabuz fell victim to this–with Komorikiri being allowed to replay the final match in his set (and losing), and Dabuz being denied the same opportunity. A dejected and frustrated Komorikiri left the stage without even a perfunctory handshake with his opponent.

While tournament organizer Bear considering checking settings prior to matches, he is going a step further to try and make amends to the players affected. He has opted to compensate the two for Genesis 4 and any other tournaments they attend this year. While Komorikiri has yet to respond to the offer, Dabuz took to Twitter to accept the act of goodwill from Bear.
