So I'm fairly new to big tournaments, please bear with me. Venue fee is the cost just to enter the place, whether or not you are competing, right? Thank you!

If you only want to spectate, the fee is $10 for all 3 days. I'll add that info to the OP.

How is this going for Smash so far entrants-wise, Hyuga? Or, do you not have access to that info as of yet?

I don't have that info, I might be able to get it if I ask though. Just as a point of comparison in case I do get the numbers, The Next Episode ended up with about 145 singles entrants, but 2 weeks before the event we were at like 25.

I can't find any smash in Iplaywinner's past broadcasts. You said they streamed the top 8, yea?

Oh, thank you! I had heard it was team spooky, but was having a hard time finding it.
