The 2GG Championship Series, or 2GGC, was a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U circuit of tournaments held throughout 2017 in Southern California as a collaboration between 2GGaming and Esports Arena. It was announced at the end of 2GGT: ZeRo Saga, and is the spiritual successor to the 2GGT series of tournaments.


Twelve tournaments were hosted, one for each month of the year. A prize pot bonus of $50,000 was distributed across the tournaments from January to November, and another $50,000 was in play for the final 2GG Championship tournament in December, making for a total of a $100,000 pot bonus throughout the entire circuit. Players who won any of the tournaments in the series qualified into the Championship, having their travel expenses paid for; other players could also qualify through points earned by placing top 16 in circuit tournaments. Four of the tournaments had the qualifying points doubled, those being 2GGC: Civil War, 2GGC: Nairo Saga, 2GGC: Fire Emblem Saga and 2GGC: MkLeo Saga (the first three being considered "season finales"). In the end, a total of 20 players were qualified.

  • Greninja Saga was originally scheduled for April 22nd. However, due to several top Greninja players (ex. iStudying and Some) being unable to attend the event, it was decided to move the event to May 20th in place of 2GGC: May Saga and not hold a Saga in April (with a Last Chance Qualifier being scheduled later to make up for it).

  • The "Saga Curse" that occurred in the 2GGT series is considered to have continued into the 2GG Championship Series. Here is each sagas' featured player(s) highest placings:
    • GENESIS Saga - 1st* (ZeRo. While he is a past GENESIS winner, the curse ruling says he must win GENESIS 4, the tournament the saga is dedicated to promoting. ZeRo placed 3rd at that tournament, so the curse still stands).
      • This is the only curse to have been a result of a certain player winning a Saga and then failing to win another tournament, as opposed to failing to win the Saga they represent.
    • Midwest Mayhem Saga - 4th (Ned, the highest placing out of anyone who was either a Midwest Mayhem winner and/or from the Midwest).
      • ZeRo, the tournament's winner, didn't reside in the Midwest until after the tournament.
    • Civil War - 49th (ZeRo) and 25th (Ally), a tournament intended to highlight their rivalry.
    • Greninja Saga - 13th (Lea, the highest placing Greninja player).
    • Nairo Saga - 4th
    • ARMS Saga - 25th (Sol, the winner of the ARMS side tournament).
    • SCR Saga - 13th (ANTi, the SCR 2016 champion) and 3rd (Larry Lurr, the SCR 2015 champion)
    • West Side Saga - 7th (Charliedaking, the highest placing player from the western USA)
    • Fire Emblem Saga - 13th (Mr.E, the highest placing player who only used Fire Emblem characters)
    • MkLeo Saga - 3rd
