Fote (present tense foting) is a commonly-used term in the Exion Discord Server that refers to playing Super Smash Bros. with fellow community members. The word “fote” is a corruption of the word “fight” and was first used by Switch in early 2014.
Fotes, similarly to competitive Super Smash Bros. matches, are often held with three stocks, no items, and a medium-length timer on legal stages. These games are generally one-versus-one; in Ultimate, players in waiting spectate and comment on ongoing games. Fote discussion takes place in #fote. If a fote becomes a free-for-all, its name changes to foge. If items are turned on, it becomes a waap.
