Smash Ultimate Summit 2
Smash Ultimate Summit 2 was a tournament hosted by Beyond The Summit (BTS) that featured two invited players, nine players qualified through a tournament, and five players voted in by the community.
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 six highest placing non-invited players at Mainstage will fill six out of the nine qualifier slots for this event. Two more qualifier slots will be filled at The Big House 9. The ninth qualifier slot will be filled at 2GG: Nightmare on Smashville. Marss, Light, Nairo, VoiD, Tea, and MuteAce qualified at Mainstage. Salem and MuteAce both finished in 7-8th place at Mainstage, necessitating a tiebreaker, however it was not needed as Salem decided to give the sixth qualifier spot to MuteAce. zackray and Dabuz qualified at The Big House 9 with a 1st and 2nd place finish. Maister qualified at 2GG: Nightmare on Smashville with a 1st place finish.
