Over the weekend, from April 14th to 16th, a very special event took place: CEO Dreamland. Taking place in Florida, CEO Dreamland was the first event of the CEO series to be dedicated entirely to the Smash series of games.
Many great matches took place, but not everyone was there to watch the stream. Missed those moments? Read our blow-by-blow recap of CEO Dreamland below.
Super Smash Bros.
While Smash 64 doubles did not have as many entrants as other doubles events, singles had quite the competition.With the absence of the recently sponsored Daniel “SuPeRbOoMfAn” Hoyt and muti-game master Justin "Wizzrobe" Hallett, Alvin Leon Hara went through a sweep of the top 8. After arriving at Grand Finals, Josh “BarkSanchez” Brody managed to beat Alvin's Falcon at game 5, resetting the bracket, but failing to defeat him in the second set.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
After being absent for a long time, Brawl made an appearance at CEO Dreamland main stage. After being defeated by Salem at Top 8, Nairoby “Nairo” Quesada managed to make his way through losers, defeating Jason “Mew2king” Zimmerman and winning with an impressive 6-0 against Vishal “V115” Balaram in Grand Finals.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Melee doubles Top 8 was a showdown between two of the most powerful teams, Counter Logic Gaming’s duo of Kevin “PewPewU” and Zac “SFAT” Cordoni against the godly team of Juan “Hungrybox” and Jason “Mew2king” Zimmerman. After defeating both gods at Winner’s Finals with a solid 3-1, the CLG duo watched as Hbox and m2k defeated Sami “ Druggedfox” Muhanna and McCain “MacD” LaVelle for the chance of a rematch aT Grand Finals. Unfortunately, both were soundly defeated and PPU and SFAT took Melee doubles.

Meanwhile, Melee singles was full of surprises. After 10 years, Hugo “HugS” Gonzalez managed to get Top 8, defeating PPU and Druggedfox before finally losing to Hbox to make 5th place. SFAT went to game 5 vs Hbox for what seemed like the thirteenth time, this time managing to win at a last-hit scenario. We got to see Justin “Plup” McGrath’s impressive Luigi that got him into top 8, defeating Druggedfox and giving Mew2king a run for his money. SFAT defeated another god and sent m2k to losers. Hbox lost by literally one frame and finally Mew2king 3-0ing SFAT for a bracket reset and then winning the tournament.
One thing that deserves special mention is 2saint, a Puff main from NYC, who managed to be the only unranked player in top 16. CEO Dreamland was his first major tournament, which made for an interesting debut.

Super Smash Bros. For Wii U
Wii U’s top 8 was delayed by an unfortunate incident. With the internet down at the venue and no way to stream matches, the Top 8 was postponed. Nevertheless, it did not fail to impress.
Jamaal “Samsora” Morris defeated James “VoiD” Makekau-Tyson with a surprising 3-1. Defeating 2 top 10 PGR members, Eric “ESAM” Lew entered Top 8 from Winner’s side after being absent for so long and put up a good fight against Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios but was ultimately defeated. Nairohad had a very heated set against Samuel “Dabuz” Busby, and in true Nairo fashion, managed to came from behind and secure the win. After double eliminating Nairo, Ramin “Mr. R” Delshad came from loser’s for a shot at getting his revenge on ZeRo, but couldn’t keep up with the champion, who ended the set with a devastating spike.
