Weekend Headliners

There’s too many smaller events to elevate one above the others. It’s a big weekend, though, folks.

Fri. (2/18)

  • Downtown Melee #1 (Offline)
    • Featuring: A brand new local series up in British Columbia! Features players like Amrak, Webwipe and The Weapon (FKA Elliot).
    • Stream: Unsure, but I wanted to shoutout a brand new stacked local!

Sat. (2/19)

  • BOPME 21 (Offline)
    • Featuring: Another 100+ entrant Midwest tourney, with appearances from Drephen, Reeve, Essy, Skerzo, Ober, Kuyashi, Shabo, Frost, and a rare Lanceinthepants sighting.
    • Stream: MeleeEveryday

This Saturday is STACKED, with more tourneys to check out. First of all, we got the Winter 2022 Game Underground Melee Invitational, featuring tons of strong New England talent, as well as Lawless Melee #3, a very stacked SoCal tourney with S2J, Fiction, KoDoRiN, Sora and more! Then, in the International Corner, we got Smash In the City with top UK talent, including what seems to be the return of Isdsar, as well as Conce Summer Revival down in Chile. Finally, we have the online ECRC Last Chance Qualifier. Get buckled up this Saturday folks, we’re in for some DAMN good Melee!


Game Underground Invitational: GameUnderground (duh)

Lawless Melee: SSBM_Schmoop

Smash in the City: PhoenixSmash

Last Chance does not have a stream I know of, and Conce Summer Revival will sadly not be featuring one.

Sun. (2/20)

  • TOP 8s & HEARTBREAK (Offline)
    • Featuring: A TOURNAMENT?! IN KENTUCKY?!?!?! Oh also Reeve and Essy are showing up.
    • Stream: Unsure, but a tournament in Kentucky is too insane to not show off.

If you know of any streamed events not on here, contact me with the relevant info on Twitter and I’ll do my best to talk about and include it in the future!
