MGM Esports and Gaming, along with TechMGM, AFCEA, and MGMWERX, recently held their largest tournament to date. With over 50 competitors and roughly 100 attendees, the 1v1 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament attracted players from all over the state. In the end, our top 3 players ended up being some of the most talented Smash Bros players we’ve seen at our tournaments thus far. In 3rd place came Jamaal Hudson, an Air Force active duty cyber operations specialist. In 2nd was Kyle Domingo, an officially ranked player in the state of Alabama. And finally, in 1st place, was Bryna Fulton, a Montgomery local whose skill surprised us all as she tore through the winners bracket undefeated.
If a player wishes to do so, they can bring their own keyboard/mice and will need to provide their own Playstation/Xbox controllers, as well as a headset if they wish (if bringing a headset, please let us know so we can prepare for any software needed for certain headsets to work properly).
Registration is $10 per person or $30 per team unless you sign up early and get our early-bird registration discount! Like our previous tournaments, we will not require any cost up front via Eventbrite for single registrants until we can guarantee you a full team of teammates. This way if there is an insufficient amount of people to form a team of free agents, we will be able to avoid any issues with refunds or communication. Upon being notified of you being assigned to a team, you will then have to bring your registration amount with you to the tournament and enjoy the rest!
The Top 3 teams take home a combined prize and 1st place walks away with the trophy!
Personnel from PlayVS and AHSAA will be onsite to provide information about starting an esports team at your high school. Coaches, teachers, administrators and students are all welcome to stop by to learn more about the programs, games played and especially to watch and check out the action!
