Best Sets of the Weekend 7/29-7/31

Sumabato For The Big House Top 32: Komirikiri vs Choco Cloud vs Zero Suit Samus Twitch Vod This is a slow set, but for good reason. Both Komorikiri and Choco have the ability to control a stock from neutral with ease. Not only that, but both player’s conversions...

Best Sets of the Weekend 7/15-7/17

This past weekend, Evo dominated esports. The largest Smash Bros tournament in history had a plethora of Japan come and compete with American favorites.

Best Sets of the Weekend 7/1-7/3

WTFox 2 Winners Semifinals: DT | Dabuz vs Mr. R Rosalina vs Sheik Youtube Vod Dabuz always pulls out the Luma tricks to make Mr. R sad. The set is a back and forth of Mr. R weaving between Dabuz’s immaculate defences and avoiding deadly Luma trades. Luma against needles...

Best Sets of the Weekend 6/24-6/26

CEO was home to the best sets of the weekend. The tournament was full of upsets including ZeRo placing 9th overall, FOW losing early to Scatt,  Hyuga taking out Nairo before top 16, and Trela drowning in pools. However, upsets don’t always make for the best sets. CEO...

Republic of Fighters Losers Finals: Gluttony vs EVK | Anragon Captain Falcon vs Falco Twitch Vod This matchup is fast and interesting.

The Best Sets of the Weekend 5/27-5/29

This weekend was full of tournaments across the world. The U.S. national tournaments, Combobreaker and Momocon 2016, turned heads as they were the chances for each region’s local talent to show what they have against established players such as ESAM and Nairo. I highly recommend going back through...
