Players to watch
MKLeo has had a strong year. He’s one of the top Smash players around, if not the best player in Ultimate. Recently he’s been on an incredible hot streak. Recently he’s taken first place at Rise N Grind, Smash Factor 9, Colossal, and more. He’s a clear favorite heading into this tournament and the person to beat for most players. He faltered a little at Super Smash Con. However, he’s bounced back since and is still the top contender.
Cosmos only just squeaked into qualification here, off the back of a win at Shine 2022. After most of a season of decent placements, Cosmos won first place at the major. Off this win, Cosmos is definitely looking like a contender for the top spot at this tournament.
Sparg0 was on an insane run at the opening of the year, before heading on an indefinite break. He is making a return here. He was neck and neck with MKLeo for most of this year. Smash Ultimate Summit 5 will be a test if he’s still at the top after his break, and it is exciting to have him back in the game.
Glutonny is a long-standing Smash player that’s been achieving great ranking results over his years in the game. This year he’s taken 4th place at Super Smash Con and Smash Factor 9, along with ranking well at other tournaments and winning Pound 2022.
