In Losers Finals, Kobe won the first two games against Epic_Gabriel with their usual mains. Epic_Gabriel, in a defeating mindset after his initial losses, asked Kobe to play random pocket characters. A request Kobe accepted (Gabriel playing Diddy Kong and Kobe Little Mac). Gabriel managed to win the third and fourth games and with the momentum, eventually reversed 3-0 Kobe when they went back to their mains for game 5. Epic_Gabriel qualified to Grand Finals and ended up winning Shell Shock.
Many smashers, such as Goblin (who is friends with Epic_Gabriel), Sharpy and many Central Florida local players, expressed their disappointment towards Epic_Gabriel on Twitter. Many other smashers such as Mr.R, Zenyou, RiotLettuce, and Laid brought their support to Gabriel, mentioning that Kobe shouldn't have accepted that favour. After an exchange in private messages, Kobe and Epic_Gabriel ended the controversy, Kobe saying that he will simply answer "no" next time.
