Smash Summit was a tournament hosted by Beyond the Summit (BTS) that featured ten invited players and six players voted in by the community.
Beyond the Summit aimed to create a "behind the scenes" oriented tournament, inspired by TakeTV's Homestory Cup in StarCraft 2, where the fans can see sides of their favorite players that they don't normally get to see. To achieve this, the tournament was held at the BTS House in Los Angeles, where the crew currently live and work.
The tournament had a base prize pool of $11,600. A Donation Drive Shop similar to the Big House 5 Compendium was used to increase the singles prize pool to $32,929.
