Smash Ultimate Summit
Smash Ultimate Summit is a tournament that was hosted by Beyond the Summit (BTS) that featured six invited players, five players that qualified through a tournament, and five players voted in by the community. This was the first edition to not feature Melee as the main game.
Beyond the Summit aims 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 is held at the BTS House in Los Angeles, where the crew currently lives and works.
The four highest placing non-invited players at GENESIS 6 filled four out of the five qualifier slots for this event. The fifth qualifier slot was held at Ultimate Nimbus. VoiD, Samsora, Dabuz, and Zackray qualified through GENESIS 6. Zackray and Light both finished in 5-6th place at GENESIS 6, necessitating a tiebreaker which Zackray won 3-1. Light qualified with a 1st place finish at Ultimate Nimbus.
