It was a free-to-enter tournament with $5k in the prize pool for the Melee and Ultimate parts.
Most of the fighting esports events are online now - for well-known reasons. On the one hand, it’s a bummer to not have a possibility to gather in one place with like-minded people. On the other hand, it’s a chance to celebrate how the Internet and favourite fighting games connect people.
Get On My Line 2020 was one of such online tournaments. Of course, it isn’t a full alternative to EVO, but GOML could gather 3251 attendees for its both parts:
- GOML Super Smash Bros. Melle that took place on July 18-19. The winner is Edgard “n0ne” Sheleby from UYU;
- GOML Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, on July 25-26. The winner is Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey from Team SoloMid.
Both parts of the event were free for the participants, and still, they had prize pools - $2.5k each.
The SSBU tournament consists of Pool Waves (day 1) and the final competition (day 2).
The Pool day was a chance to meet all sorts of players - from beginners to glorious professionals. Here is the full stream of these matches:

The final competition had the Top 256, Top 32, and Top 8 parts. This scheme was similar to other tournaments, such as The Box: Juice Box #7.
Tweek played in the Winners Bracket of Top 8. His opponent in the Grand Final was Spencer “BestNess” Garner from Armada, who reached the Grand Final after four matches in the Losers Bracket. Tweek won 3:0.
