About time these came back, sorry about that.

The biggest event of the year is upon us, and it's monumental. Featuring almost all the best players of the Hyrule characters, along with, well, most of everyone else!

Bracket: https://smash.gg/tournament/2gg-hyrule-saga/events/smash-4-singles/brackets?per_page=20&filter={"phaseId":195439,"id":596048}&page=1

Additionally, the day before the event (today), there's a special event at the eSports arena called Triforce Friday, that'll probably give us a taste of what the weekend holds. Check it out!

I can see Sigma :4tlink: has some expectations to live up to. He is projected to beat Eon :4fox:in winners finals of his bracket to move on. Then, he is projected to lose to Tweek :4cloud2::4bayonetta2:, but beat Darkshad :4ryu: to make top 32. Not sure how to think of this, but what if this really happened? It would be a good placement for his debut in the U.S.

Wow!

This is sick. Too bad now these upsets won't happen again in the actual tournament :/

Edit: Can't believe I'm editing my post to say Raito won grands against Wadi 3-2, not dropping a set the whole tournament.

That was a beyond fun gf to watch. Wow.

2nd: WaDi:4mewtwo::4rob:
3rd: Lima:4bayonetta2:
4th: Shuton:4olimar:
5th: T:4link:

A Ganondorf defeating Ally is an upset to the Smash Community in general, especially with the low seedings placed on them. Is this a sign to what will happen next in Hyrule Saga?

In my opinion, Zaki vs MKLeo is the biggest upset in the history of Smash 4.

Like yeah, Prince Ramen beating ZeRo was huge, but Palutena isn't friggin' KING DEDEDE.

Have to be inclined to agree.

And I thought Elegant SDing on purpose so he could try for a JV3 o a random Robin was hilarious enough...

With Wave B done, here's where we stand:

:4sheik: - 5 (Strike, Cacogen, Sinnyboo242, Dynamo, Blank)
:4tlink: - 2 (Zan, Yeti)
:4link: - 1 (Halo)
:4zelda: - 1 (Onpu)
:4ganondorf: - 1 (The Forkies)

Looks like Ganon snuck in too!

Oh, and:
:4dedede: - 1 (ZAKI!!!!!!)

Guys, I just realized something. No matter what happens to Zaki :4dedede: from this point on, he is. at least guaranteed 33rd. That is a huge deal for King Dedede right now, and he most likely will face Charlie :4fox::4bayonetta2:(:4sheik:?), who he just beat a few days ago. If he can do it again, Zaki is making history, at an A+ tier tourney!

The brackets are legit wack. lol
I personally don't see him beating Charlie again, but still an impressive feat.

if things go as smash.gg has it, komo and leo fight for 13th, and the loser fights tweek or salem to make top 8 losers side
YIKES

also, question: How much of top 32 will be best of 5?

Well, maybe T will do better tomorrow. However, he is projected to deal with Tyroy in losers to qualify for top 32. That will hurt a lot, but then again, EspeonCH managed to take a game from him.

Also, Ven :4zelda: 2-0 Koolaid :4sheik: apparently.

Eon :4fox: 2-0 Sigma :4tlink:in the winners finals of the top 192 quailifiers. At least he still made it out.
