Smash Summit 2 was a national Super Smash Bros. Melee invitational tournament held in Los Angeles, California from April 21st-24th, 2016 by Beyond the Summit, an eSports company known for their Dota 2 coverage. Singles, doubles and side events for Melee were hosted. The tournament was held at the Summit gaming house, a private residence, and so is not open to the general public. This tournament is also notable for being only the second tournament where Mew2King beat Armada, the other being SKTAR 3.

Players[edit]

These 10 players were invited by Beyond The Summit.

  • Leffen was not able to attend and was replaced by Silent Wolf.

6 more players were chosen by the community. They had to be Top 50 on the 2015 SSBMRank or have placed Top 32 at either The Big House 5 or GENESIS 3.

Eligible players[edit]

Crews and Smash Olympics[edit]

At the very beginning of Smash Summit 2, 4 captains who were previously chosen by vote (Hungrybox, Mango, Armada, and Westballz) formed crews by picking smashers through a snake draft process.

Team Pandabox USA Hungrybox USA Plup USA Wobbles USA ESAM
Team Mango USA Mango USA S2J USA Silent Wolf USA Duck
Team Armada Sweden Armada Germany Ice USA SFAT USA Shroomed
Team Westballz USA Westballz USA Mew2King USA Axe USA PewPewU

Each crew would gain points when their members won or placed high enough at the verious side events such as the Shared Controller Tournament and the Iron Man Challenge. The team with the most points at the end would win the Smash Olympics and earn $750 to share among themselves.

    • The last time Mew2King took a set off Armada was in 2014 at SKTAR 3.
  • This was the very first Melee tournament in California that both Armada and Mango entered where they did not meet in Grand Finals.
