MkLeo Takes the First Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Tour

On December 17-19, 2021, “Beardog Events” held the first “Smash World Tour” for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in Orlando, Florida. Outside of the Last Chance Qualifier tournament that took place on the first day of the event, all players qualified through seven regional tournaments. With forty contenders from around the world and a $75,000 prize pool, the Smash World Tour looked to be the biggest Smash Ultiatme event this year. However, only one could take home the title of World champion, and while many came to claim it, everyone already knew who would take it home; that player was, of course, Lenardo “MkLeo” Perez.

Smash World Tour: Ultimate Singles

There were some surprising outcomes in the Smash Ultimate Bracket. Players such as Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey, Tyler “Marss” Martins and Jestise “MVD” Negron all placed in the seventeenth to the twenty-fourth range. In addition, some notable players that made it far into the tournament were Kolawole “Kola” Aideyan, Edgar “Sparg0” Valdez and Salvatore “Zomba” DeSena, who all made it to the top eight.

MkLeo made his bracket look easy, not even dropping a game until the grand finals. While Brian “Cosmos” Kalu had a more difficult challenge ahead of him. He won his first set against Zomba 3-2 but then lost to Sparg0 2-3. In losers, Cosmos beat Dabuz 3-0 then had a rematch with Zomba, taking it 3-1. Cosmos then played his Bracket demon, Sparg0, accept this time, Cosmos was ready, taking the set 3-1.

Ultimate Smash World Tour Grand Finals

MkLeo and Cosmos met in the grand finals. For the first three games, MkLeo opted to go Pyra/Mythra for a ditto match against Cosmos’ Pyra/Mythra. Cosmos took the first game, but MkLeo bounced back the second, making it 1-1. After losing the third game, Mkleo went back to playing Byleth for the remainder of the set. Unfortunately for Cosmos, no one has found an answer for MkLeo’s Byleth. As a result, MkLeo took the last two games in the set, taking it 3-2 and Smash Ultimate’s World Champion title.

Future of Competitive Smash Ultimate

With yet another win under MkLeo’s belt, it seems his rain of terror will not end in 2022. Even still, many players have been putting in the work and are close to closing the gap between them and MkLeo. 2022 will indeed have more exciting Smash Ultiatme in the future, with Genesis 8 clicking this off in early 2022.
