Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate both surpass 1,000 entrants at Genesis 7

The main entry window for Genesis 7 is now closed and it’s already looking like it will be the best tournament of the early 2020 competitive season for both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate. 

As one of the most legendary tournaments in the fighting game scene, Genesis is always one of the biggest Melee tournaments each year. But it’s also the biggest Ultimate tournament so far this season since both games have surpassed 1,000 entrants just four days into the new year. 

Let’s Make Big Moves, the first Ultimate Major, is currently underway, but it has just over 750 total competitors throughout every bracket while Ultimate Singles at Genesis has logged more than 1,600. Based on entrants alone that makes it an S-Tier event without taking into account some of the bigger names attending like Leonardo “MKLeo” Lopez and Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey. 

This will also be MKLeo’s first tournament of 2020, meaning he’ll be defending his top rank once more against several players who will have already been competing in other events.
