The Gimvitational was a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate major invitational held in Laurel, Maryland, from June 16th-19th, 2022. The tournament was announced following GimR's presentation on the slingshot technique and featured a Summit-esque voting style, where 20% of all donations and shop profits were be added to a "Player Fund," a fund that returned a percentage of money to those who made it into the nomination phase. The tournament also experimented with a mixed hazards on and hazard off stagelist.
