Seeding Controversy[edit]

A week before the tournament, many people started to complain about the low seeding of many players, especially European players such as Glutonny and cyve. Even after GENESIS 6 announced bracket feedback, many still complained that the seeding was inaccurate and should be redone. In response to these complaints, Leffen had messaged GENESIS 6's seeders, telling them to change the seeds. The insuing discussion resulted in several statements which Leffen found rude or offensive and posted to Twitter. [1][2] Seeder ALT messaged on Discord "so if 500 penguins entered a tournament in antarctica and i won it should i be a top 10 seed?" This created massive backlash on Twitter, with people complaining to GENESIS 6 to fire their seeders. In response to all this backlash, Bear has stated that he was working on adjusting the seeding, and apologized for the rude behavior some seeders have shown. [3] The seeding was subsequently redone by a new seeding team and ALT was removed from the seeding team in the PGStats discord, though the rest of the original seeding team went on to seed majors such as CEO 2019, EVO 2019, Super Smash Con 2019, The Big House 9, and GENESIS 7 without controversy.

As a result of the drama, the penguins insult has since become an internet meme, with Smashers such as Leffen and Bear changing their profile picture into penguins, and Bear promising to wear a penguin onesie at GENESIS 6. [4] Even Nintendo joined in, with the Nintendo UK VS Twitter account tweeting "Best of luck to all the European Super #SmashBrosUltimate players at @Genesis_Smash this weekend!" with a picture of four King Dededes on Battlefield form Summit.[5]


  • This was Mew2King's worst performance in over 13 years of Melee singles (without forfeiting), placing 33rd. This also marks the first time he has failed to make top 32 without forfeiting.
  • This was Armada's worst performance in any Smash game, discounting disqualifications. Armada placed 97th in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at this tournament.
    • This was also Armada's first time attending a GENESIS event without entering Melee singles.
  • This stands as Shroomed's worst placing at a Melee tournament, placing 97th.
  • All 3 singles grand finals (Smash 64, Melee, Ultimate) featured one of the Electric Mouse Pokémon (Pichu and Pikachu).
    • This tournament also marked the highest ever placing of a Pikachu main at a supermajor national with Axe placing 2nd, before Axe's first place finish at Smash Summit 8 four months later.
  • This is the only Melee tournament in 2019 to have over 1,000 entrants.
