Competitors and spectators alike are beyond excited to finally be back at an in-person event. There are over 3,000 people competing this weekend with even more than that here to watch it all go down.

Pro smash player Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey had this to say regarding being back for an event after a seemingly dry spell for all competitive communities: “It’s great to be back, you never know what’s gonna happen with everything going on, so it’s great that this was able to happen! Everyone seems to be having a good time.” 

One thing’s for sure, there’s a lot of passion for smash and gaming alike here this weekend, and people can’t get enough of it.
