Several legends of Smash Bros. Melee will try at the Smash Ultimate at Genesis 6 this weekend. Who goes and what can you expect?
Tournament commissions, including Genesis 6, struggle with tough decisions as they develop guidelines for their Super Smash Bros. events Ultimate.
From the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in December, many of the long-term, top melee players redirected their focus to the new title, and in the first group of these Bay Area players gave lower rankings. opportunities.
On Saturday, in 2018, the winner of the Evolution Championship William "Leffen" Hjelte dropped out of the Melee race. Joseph "Mang0" Marquez fell to the losing group after losing his colleague Falco chief Sasha "Magi Sullivan, ranked 98th in the world for Melee; The 13th best player in the world, James "Swedish Delight" Liu, lost to the unsuccessful Rhodes "Joyboy" Sabangan in the winners category; and DaJuan "Shroomed" McDaniel, the 29th ranked player in the world, who also played the Ultimate Bigger Melee, was eliminated altogether.
Several of Melee's top eight players have been focusing on this title over the past month. Three – Juan "Hungrybox" DeBiedma, Zain "Zain" Naghmi and Mang0 – have invested a significant portion of their time at Melee since the release of Ultimate. And on Saturday night and Sunday morning, these three stand out as favorites in the bracket.
In September, Adam "Armada" Lindgren, the contender for the title of the greatest player on all sides, withdrew from the singles tournaments. However, he competed in the Ultimate at Genesis, although he was eliminated earlier in the Leffen tournament, which remains the Ultimate winner.
Changes at the top of the box open the top 64 option for those dedicated to Melee. Names like Massa "aMSa" Chicago, Jeffrey "Ax" Williamson, Johnny "S2J" Kim and James "Duck" Ma remain in the winning side of the tournament and will pose a real threat as the bracket shrinks on Saturday night.
In contrast, when the Super Smash Bros for the Wii U was released at the end of 2014, Melee players engage with the Ultimate High-Quality Clip. According to these players, this is partly because the game is more fun than Wii U iteration.
The Paramount Theater in downtown Oakland will host on Sunday one of the most exciting top eight in the new story of the game. As with Genesis in 2017, when Justin "Plup" McGrath defeated Hungrybox, the race will surely be filled with willing and upset in abundance.
