2GGaming (2GG), originally known as 2GoodGaming, was a for-profit organization based in Southern California that hosts events for the Smash community. Since the beginning of 2016, they have grown rapidly with large amounts of support. 2GG has had an increase in stream viewers and more tournament entrants due to consistently organizing and hosting events of high quality for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. They also sponsored top professional players, either for the duration of a tournament or for a longer period of time, like VoiD or komorikiri.

2GGaming announced its hiatus on October 4th, 2021,[1] and is currently in the process of disbandment.

Tournament series[edit]

  • Sagas: 2GG's main tournament series. Sagas are often national-level tournaments that either stars a certain player or revolves around a prominent Smash franchise.
    • 2GGT: A tournament series held from 2015-2016 that flew out starring players to compete against SoCal's best players. The tournament series helped bring 2GGaming into the spotlight and established the team as a household name.
    • 2GG Championship Series: The spiritual successor to 2GGT. A circuit spanning 2017 leading up to a 20-player championship, with a $100,000 pot split between eleven tournaments. The circuit featured some of the largest Smash 4 tournaments of all time, including 2GGC: Civil War, a tournament that featured almost all players that were globally ranked at the time.
  • Weeklies: 2GG also held a couple of notable weeklies:
