That was a tournament with many prominent players in Smash esports
It’s nice to have open fighting tournaments where everyone can become a participant and prove their skills. But invitational events are especially interesting - the organizers choose the players, so the level of competition is high at every stage, with absolutely breathtaking matches in the Finals. One of such SSBU invitational tournaments happened on January 31 - The Host Up Invitational.
64 prominent players joined the battle. If you follow Smash Ultimate news on DashFight, you definitely know some of the attendees, such as BestNess, the winner of Get Clipped #8; Sonix, the winner of The Box: Juice Box #19; Epic_Gabriel, the winner of Smash the Router #4; and Sparg0, the best SSBU player according to Wi-Fi Warrior Ranking.
Watching their fights is a wonderful experience - and it can be quite helpful as well, for you to absorb various tricks and start playing Smash Ultimate batter.
