2GGC: Civil War
2GGC: Civil War was an international Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament held in Santa Ana, California, from March 24th to 26th, 2017 and organized by 2GGaming. Most top-level players attended, including ZeRo, MkLeo, Ally, Nairo, Dabuz, Larry Lurr, VoiD, Mr.R, ANTi, Abadango, komorikiri and Kameme. 47 out of the 50 players listed on the Panda Global Rankings v2 entered the tournament. It is widely considered to be one of the most important and hardest Smash 4 events of all time. Outdoor block parties followed brackets each night with musical performances.
Following ZeRo's unprecedented tournament losses to Ally at Get On My Level 2016 and Smash 'N' Splash 2, a strong rivalry arose between the two players, leading to many instances of trash talk and the creation of the Twitter hashtags #TeamZeRo and #TeamAlly, which were used at large by the Smash community to represent which of the two players they supported. To capitalize on said rivalry, Larry Lurr proposed the idea of a 2GGT tournament centered around that theme, and it was greenlit by the 2GG staff as Larry's tweet was met with very strong support. 
On December 18th, 2016, with the announcement of the 2GG Championship Series, Civil War was revealed to be one of its season finale events. It featured a combined prize pot bonus of $30,000 for all events. $15,000 went towards singles, $5,000 to doubles and the remaining $10,000 made up the prize pool for the 10 vs 10 crew battle between Team ZeRo and Team Ally.
The main theme of 2GGC: Civil War was the rivalry between ZeRo and Ally and how they "recruited" some of the best smashers in the world to compete in their name. The captains did not pick the players; instead 18 of the best smashers in the world were interviewed by Champ in order to determine which of them they favored, forming 2 core teams of 10 players each. They participated in the crew battle on Sunday, which was the tournament's main event.
All players who registered for the tournament were required to pick one of the two teams. The list below is limited to the players ranked on the Panda Global Rankings v2:
