    Both of these events are B Tier. This is going to be interesting. I wonder if there will be an event that will gather all the top players again like Civil War last year (I cannot believe it is already a year since then), because we need those A+ and S tiers in the house this season.

    Going into this tourney excited. It's been awhile since I have last watched a tourney for hours. This will be fun. I need to get back into the habit.

    Probably similar to Low Tier City 5, where Low Tier City was the Smash tournament, but it was part of a larger event: the Let's Play Gaming Expo.

    For those who don't know, blanc is considered the current best Jr. player in the world since Tweek doesn't play him.

    Everytime Mew2King was sent to losers, he immediately DQ himself. Why?

    Melee. He doesn't want to continue so his SSB4 play doesn't mess him up at Melee. I surprised that he entered in the SSB4 singles bracket in the first place at this tourney.

    Samsora is going in with Rosa. If he could just, like, stop landing directly on top of Tweek, that would be awesome. And his reactions let him down at two key times.

    Ahhhhh

    Tweek 3-2 over Samsora.

    EDIT: what is with players landing on top of other players today? Like, Mr. R, why are you BFing to the top of Mario's head?

    So sad to see S1 face Gluttony. I want both of them in top 8.

    S1 beat Gluttony 3-1.

    The comment section was a circus act of "Ness sucks" or something like "FOW left so he's ruined". Basically talk about his viability. I don't have a twitch account, so I cannot comment on some common sense with them, and the match wasn't as enjoyable as I wanted. Nevertheless, even if S1 loses to Griffith tomorrow, he would place at least 7th, so it is another good placing for the PK Kid this year.

    That is Twitch chat, everyone got salty from S1 beating Gluttony and people are giving bias and crap against Ness. Welcome to Twitch chat, one of the more TOXIC communities out there.

    Also that Gluttony vs S1 match is super one-sided. S1 SLAUGHTERED Gluttony on every level.

    It is not salt from Gluttony at all, it was DURING their match. They really didn't talk about Ness when the match was over, and shifted their focus to Locus vs Sells (which Locus won 3-1 btw to make it to top 8). They were also talking about who is the best Ness player as well, which is definitely a much more comfortable argument (even I don't know who sincerely is the best Ness after FOW).

    Ignore the Twitch chat..I tried to give them information about Ness, but the chat goes so fast.

    By the looks of top 8, I could see S1 being played from 7th to 4th if he can handled Griffith and CaptainZack.

    I guess S1 is the last European player in this tourney.

    S1 vs Zack rematch was insane. Both players were fire. Despite the crowd oblivious of Ness's great results in 2017 and so far in 2018, this may leave a good impression on the character.

    S1 was flubbing Ness's recovery though.

    It was already demonstrated throughout 2017, and so far in 2018. People are either overlooking his great results or just oblivious of them.
