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!
