Port Priority 8 was a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate supermajor held in Seattle, Washington, from November 11th-12th, 2023. The top non-qualified player, KEN, qualified for Watch The Throne.

Tournament summary[edit]

The tournament was the sixth and final "premier" event for the LumiRank 2023 season, with the event featuring 24 of the mid-year ranking's top 30 players in attendance -- only Yoshidora, Kameme, Zackray, Jogibu, Bloom4Eva, and DIO were not in attendance -- making it one of the most top heavy events of the year alongside Battle of BC 5. This tournament was also the North American tournament debut for Hurt and Kaninabe, two of Japan's rising stars, as well as alice's first open North American event.

A numerous amount of top players ended up underperforming at this event. Most notably, all four top Mexican players, Sparg0, MkLeo, Maister, and Skyjay, were in attendance and tied at 17th. Other underperformances include Riddles placing 13th, Glutonny and Asimo finishing 17th, Zomba finishing 33rd, and a few top Japanese players such as Neo, Yaura, and Shuton finishing outside of top 32. Shuton notably was upset by Skinny the Pooh and Tarik for 49th, marking his worst placement in Ultimate singles.

Conversely, this also marked the best supermajor placement in North America for some characters. Umeki placing 5th with solely Daisy is the best run with the character in the country since Umeki's own 17th place at Frostbite 2019. Most notably, BeastModePaul's 17th place with solely Hero is the best performance of the character at a North American tournament, having a hot streak in bracket and notably upsetting three Europeans -- Glutonny, Sisqui, and AndresFn -- along the way.

The Loser's side of Top 8 featured a ditto between the best Peach/Daisy players in North America and Japan (MuteAce and Umeki) as well as a ditto between the best Fox players in the two regions (Light and Kaninabe). Several players compared the Loser's side to the Loser's side of Melee singles at Fête 3: By the Sea.

The Winner's side of top 8 saw Sonix facing off against Japan's best two players acola and Miya, marking the first time Sonix fought the two. He ultimately dominated both sets, deafeating acola 3-0 and defeating Miya 3-1; the latter also marked Miya's first game loss of the tournament. Miya defeated acola 3-1 in Loser's Finals, with acola notably pulling out his secondary Aegis in game 2 to no avail, and managed to reset the bracket against Sonix 3-1. However, Sonix ultimately clutched out the final set 3-1, winning his first premier event.

This tournament marks Luminosity Gaming's first major/supermajor win, with Sonix finally breaking the "curse" and winning Ultimate singles. Sonix's win also broke Miya's three-major win streak, who had previously won Kagaribi 11, Rise 'N Grind 2023, and Seibugeki 15 back-to-back. This tournament also marked the first premier-tier event since GENESIS 9 that acola did not make it to grand finals.
