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, Ally, MkLeo, 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, with the only exceptions being #19 KEN, #22 Hyuga, and #49 Taiheita. 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. [1]

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.

Side events featured a cosplay contest with a $1,000 prize, online/in-person ladders, a round robin to determine the featured character of April Saga, and a Salty Suite.


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.

April Saga Round Robin[edit]

(6 entrants)
This round robin's objective was to determine the character who will be the main theme of the 2GGC tournament taking place in April, which will be the one the winner used. The players participating in it were first nominated, then the characters used by them were chosen through a vote. Ranai won with Greninja, confirming 2GGC: Greninja Saga (which was eventually delayed to May due to other circumstances).

  • Civil War stands as ZeRo's worst placing in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament at 49th. This record was previously held by Super Smash Con 2016 (13th).
    • Civil War also marks the first time ZeRo has lost to a Zero Suit Samus player since losing to Nairo at MLG World Finals 2015 nearly two years earlier.
    • MkLeo, who was seeded 2nd at the tournament, also had his all-time lowest placement, finishing in 65th place after losses to Meteor and AC, though it may be attributed to potential sickness[2] (Later, this placement would be shared with EVO 2017 nearly four months later).
  • In line with every past 2GGT and 2GGC tournament, the "Curse" continues as neither ZeRo nor Ally were able to get into Top 16, let alone win the tournament.
    • Ironically, ZeRo and Ally both lost to players representing their own teams: Xzax and Luhtie were both Team ZeRo, while Locus and ESAM were both Team Ally.
  • In a similar vein to CEO 2016, this tournament was infamous for top players' poor placings, with Nairo, Larry Lurr, Abadango, and Mr.R placing 9th; Ally and ANTi placing 25th; VoiD placing 33rd; ZeRo placing 49th; and MkLeo placing 65th. This, however, is related to the massive number of upsets that took place at the tournament.
  • Mango notably made a guest appearance at the event, but did not participate.
