EVO 2016 Super Smash Bros. Results
With 2600 Smash 4 competitors and 2350 Melee players, this year’s EVO was the largest ever for the Super Smash Bros. community. As the second and third largest games respectively, the only game that topped them in sign-ups was the recently released Street Fighter V. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the results from this event.
This was the largest Smash 4 tournament in history. While it had it’s problems, which can be read about here on GAMURS, it was an impressive showing of talent. The top eight results for singles can be found below.
1st: Ally - $15,972
2nd: Kamemushi - $5,324
3rd: [TSM] ZeRo - $2,662
4th: [CLG] VoiD - $1064
5th/6th: Abadango - $532
5th/6th: Ranai - $532
7th/8th: [eLevate] Larry Lurr - $266
7th/8th: [dT] Dabuz - $266
Congrats to Ally, as this marks the first time that a Mario player has won a large major tournament. His victory displays the diversity of Smash 4 and how many characters can be considered viable. In similar vein, Kamemushi’s performance with MegaMan was also impressive. Hopefully we see more amazing tournaments like this in the future, and hopefully they will be organized better.
While they did not receive as lackluster treatment as the Smash 4 players, some Melee community members have complained about the conditions of the tournament as well. But, nonetheless, it turned out to be an excellent event. The results of the singles Melee tournament can be found below.
1st: [TL] Hungrybox - $14,232
2nd: [ALL] Armada - $4,744
3rd: [PG] Plup - $2,372
4th: [C9] Mango - $948
5th/6th: [EF] [MVG] Mew2King - $474
5th/6th: [TS] S2J - $474
7th/8th: [G2] Westballz - $237
7th/8th: [CLG] PewPewU - $237
Another exciting tournament, and congratulations to Hungrybox for his first EVO win. The finals this year were a repeat matchup of last year, except for the fact that HungryBox failed to reset the bracket and lost during the first best-of-five one year ago. A big congrats is also earned by Plup for managing to break past two gods and taking the bronze medal. This was an excellent conclusion to the biggest Smash tournament in history.
