History

A short history on the Zenith series dates all the way back to 2006 with Alex and a crew called Killa Fleet. These tournaments started out small at a place in NYC called Web2Zone. KF supported Alex's events as he was just starting out himself as a TO and eventually started the NYC weeklies and ran them together.

But a larger installment called "Zenith" quickly became popular and lasted all the way to 2008. KF and Alex ran these together as well and it attracted a lot of big names (KDJ, PC) and was home to rising stars like Hax, Vanz, Tag, Jman to name some. Big crew competition was fierce during this time as well between KF and Deadly Alliance made for lot's of **** talk but helped spark the scene during this time.

As Zenith's became larger, a crew called TSA came in to help out these events in helping to get more people and running an efficient tournament together with Alex. Zenith's had a reputation for being well run, extremely fun, and a great Melee experience! Web2Zone itself as well as become a central point for training and hanging out (and bubble tea!). Over the course of time though Web2Zone had closed it's doors, but is always remembered:


[Taken from ROM3 this year!]

Alex had decided after the end of the Melee weeklies and with Brawl coming out, to retire the Zenith series. However, throughout time Melee has shown resilence all this time with huge tournament numbers from Pound 4, ROM, Apex, and Genesis all which demonstrate the love and competition people share for this game. Thusly we've decided to bring back the Zenith series and dedicate it solely to Melee as it was before!

AWWEEESOMEE. I'll be sure to try and make this event along with Fl.


Just wanted to mention a few things for anyone who's never been to a tournament ran by Alex Strife.
THIS will probably be one of the best tournaments this year, APEX was amazing and he really understands how to run a tournament properly. Not only that, but the prizes and side events he hosts aren't flukes- This is one of the few TO's i feel actually puts in more effort then most to make his events the best they can me.

I was the lucky winner at APEX 2010 for the HDTV off the raffle. I wasn't even sure if I was really gonna get it. However, I actually did. Every few days throughout WEEKS Alex Strife kept in touch and made sure I received my TV- asking for updates and whatnot. Even when there was addressing issues Alex kept his word and within a month or so I had a brand new HDTV sitting in my dorm. Looks great and I can't thank him and Crismas (who did a number of awesome things like creating stickers and pro-looking name tags) enough for making APEX probably my best smashing experiences to this date.

GET HYPE PEOPLE, THIS ****S GONNA BE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD

Ya, we couldn't do anything about that one =/ we did think about the venue in Brooklyn but for two day it was better to choose a hotel location that we had used before.

East Coast Hookers is an amazing name lmaoooo.

And yeah, sad that most of those people quit =/ I loved those days so much.

You should team with Haley for this cause you guys did really well at Zenith's AND were just starting out.


PS: Diakonos I fixed your name in the OP XD!
