- Continuing the 2GGT "saga curse", Abadango failed to win the tournament that bore his namesake, placing 13th at the event.
- Furthermore, his placement stands as his worst placing in an American tournament since GENESIS 3.
- Nairo notably 2-stocked ZeRo with Lucina in their set after getting 2-stocked with Zero Suit Samus in the previous match, although he still ended up losing 1-3.
- Larry Lurr used the nametag "4 SHOFU" throughout the tournament in honor of shofu, who he was humorously attempting to get a 2GG saga based on.
- Coincidentally, Larry Lurr and shofu were teammates at the time, with both of them being sponsored by eLevate.
- Despite being knocked into losers bracket by Captain Zack in pools, Larry made an impressive losers run, defeating SM, S2H, Xzax, Ito, K9sbruce, WaDi, Komorikiri, Ally, Nairo, and resetting the bracket in grand finals vs. ZeRo (though he lost to him in the second set to place 2nd).
