This weekend was host to CEO Dreamland, the first Smash-only CEO event. Here's a blow-by-blow recap of all the action.
With the help of the quite large Florida SSB64 community, the 64 community is looking to have a strong showing at CEO Dreamland.
Regardless of the smaller pool of players compared to CEO 2016, Florida has come out in full force to defend their turf from invading warriors from around the globe.
Even though only two of Melee’s gods, Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma and Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman, are in attendance at CEO Dreamland, the talent pool is still deep with several Top 100 players in attendance.
The rumors have been confirmed: CEO Gaming's Alex Jebailey has just announced CEO Dreamland for April 14-16, 2017. This new installment in the long-running CEO series focuses specifically on Smash and Smash-related titles. Confirmed games include Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros., Brawlhaha and Rivals of Aether. All games will feature both doubles (on Friday) and singles (Saturday and Sunday) brackets. This tournament will not be replacing Smash at CEO 2017; instead, it is to serve as spin-off in the CEO series.
Today, renowned tournament host Alex Jebailey suggested via his Twitter that he'll be hosting a Smash-focused event sometime next year. This is big news, since Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U already feature prominently at Jebailey's premier event, Community Effort Orlando. Details are scarce, but it's already looking to be an exciting tournament. Read on to learn what we know now!
Most people who follow competitive scenes are aware of the term "upset" and use it frequently when discussing matches or sets. For those who aren’t, an upset is typically defined as one player or team losing to another, deviating from the expected result. An upset can occur for countless reasons, from character match-ups unknown to one of the players, a lack of confidence affecting skill, something unusual occurring in-game, among others. Contrary to the connotations of the word “upset”, it’s not necessarily bad to see these types of results in tournaments, especially at majors. The latest major tournament held in the US, Community Effort Orlando 2016, was home to numerous upsets across various games this year, but for the sake of brevity and relevance, this article will be looking at Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and taking a quick peak at what the various upsets and results of CEO mean for the current Smash 4 metagame.
Nintendo has partnered with Community Effort Orlando (CEO), one of the biggest tournament series in Smash and the FGC! This year's event, CEO 2016, will be taking place in Orlando, Florida from June 24th-26th. Some notable names in attendance for Melee and Smash 4 include ZeRo, Hungrybox, Nairo, Dabuz, Plup, Mr. R, Abadango, and many more. Registration for CEO 2016 closes on June 12th, so be sure not to miss one of this year's premier tournaments!
