GlitchGate Controversy[edit]

A week before the tournament started, PGStats determined that Glitch 7 would be a S-Tier tournament due to the number of currently-ranked PGRU players attending the tournament. However, Stroder would disqualify himself from the tournament, directly affecting Glitch 7's score and dropping it below the S-Tier threshold of 2,400 points. As a result, PGStats announced that Glitch 7 would be demoted into an A-Tier.[3] This decision, which some have dubbed as "GlitchGate," caused some controversy, with people pointing out how MomoCon 2019 kept its S-Tier status even after having over 50 disqualifications, which would have also lowered it into an A-Tier.[4]

In response to the controversy, PracticalTAS explained that counting disqualifications for normal entrants was extremely difficult and potentially inaccurate due to how many are listed as 0-2 instead.[5] Furthermore, suar linked and agreed to a post where another player stated that tier values were simply a title, and that how much the tournament weighted was more important. [6]

Trivia[edit]

  • ESAM's victory in Ultimate singles at Glitch 7 notably coincided with Ash Ketchum's victory at the Manalo Conference in the Pokémon anime. Both are known for using Pikachu.
    • Additionally, ESAM's victory in Ultimate singles at Glitch 7 is the first major tournament win of his career. 2019 also featured the first major win of Melee's best Pikachu main, Axe, at Smash Summit 8.
  • The tournament was named after a famous glitch in Super Mario Bros. where clipping through the pipe at the end of World 1-2 and going down the first pipe of the Warp Zone can access the glitched level known as the "Minus World" or "World -1".
