MD/VA (Maryland/Virginia) is home to arguably the most talented pool of smash players in the world. With iconic weekly venues like Xanadu, high level play is always on display in Maryland. So when top players from other states come into town to face MD/VA’s finest, great action is sure to follow. This is where the Glitch tournament series comes into play. “Glitch” is a (now) yearly Smash tournament at Xanadu. It is by far the most dynamic and interesting smash tournament ever conceived. Glitch is home to smash 4 singles, doubles, Amibo tournaments, low tier tournaments, customs tournaments and more. With so many exciting events, the tournament sees a large amount of attendees each year, always delivering on the hype. With last years Glitch 3 being such a classic, let’s take an early look at Glitch 4.
One of the most exciting parts of Glitch is the speculation as to which out of town players will be attending. Luckily for us however, most of the speculation is over, and barring some extremely late registration, we already have a good idea of who’ll be attending.
Along with the usual MD/VA crowd and other locals (including myself), big name players from other regions will be there. High caliber players like Gavin “Tweek” P1 Dempsey, Samuel “Dabuz” Buzby, Zack “P1 Captain Zack” Lauth Brian “Cosmos” Kalu and more will be in attendance. Needless to say this will be a stacked event, and the local stars will definitely have a chip on their shoulders.
There is still a week left for players to register for the tournament so more players could enter. There have been rumblings on twitter from a few top players who could possibly make it. Nothing is set in stone just yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
This could very easily be a Bayonetta dominated tournament and that isn’t a bad thing at all. With four of the best Bayo players in the world all attending, we could see some very unique, high level Bayonetta play. This isn’t the end of the world if you aren’t a fan of Bayonetta however. There are a couple of key players who consistently beat Bayonetta, who could really turn the tides. Dabuz is on a roll this year and is making a serious case for being #1 in the world. Dabuz is unfazed by the Bayonetta match-up, and consistently slays the competition. Cosmos is another “Bayo Slayer” and could definitely shake things up in bracket. Both players have been on fire as of late and are players to watch at Glitch 4.
Glitch is such a dynamic and unique tournament that it really could go any way. With so many skilled players likely facing new opponents, upsets are sure to ensue.
Many would have last years champion Chris “Wadi” Boston as their favorite to win it all. But with so much more competition incoming, Maryland’s best player will have a tough road in front of him. While many would love to see Wadi get a rematch in grand finals against Dabuz, I think there’s another player who could win it all. P1 Tweek has been seemingly unstoppable as of late and I think he could clean up this tournament. Tweek is the best and most dynamic Bayonetta player in the world in my opinion. What separates him from other Bayo players is that he has such solid secondary characters to cover his bad match-ups. My prediction is that Tweek will dominate this tournament and prove that he is the best Bayonetta in the world.
My Prediction Tweek Over Dabuz 3-2
