YouTuber Ludwig is known for his fondness of Super Smash Bros., and in October, he is taking it to the next level by hosting what he’s referring to as the “biggest” tournament for the franchise.
Boasting two brackets of 32 players across Ultimate and Melee, the event will run from Oct. 21 to 23 with two $30,002 prize pools and be broadcast live from Las Vegas on Ludwig’s official YouTube channel.
Eight spots in each bracket will be reserved for the top players in a Last Chance Qualifier, but the remaining 24 are going to be direct invites. While not all participants have been confirmed, a video Ludwig posted yesterday on Twitter unveiled some notable names that will be in attendance.
