Summit Champions League Season 2
Sponsored by Hyper X and Hit Box, this tournament from Beyond the Summit brings the very best in Melee esports to compete. Previously known as the Slippi Champions League, Beyond the Summit decided to rebrand for fear of retaliation from Nintendo. The Big House Online was previously canceled for using the Slippi mod, which SML will use. In order to stay safe, BTS rebranded the tourney name from last year.
Despite controversies from Nintendo with its lack of support and a cease and desist order on TBH, the Smash community is reviving. With massive events like the Smash World Tour, 2021 looks good for Melee and Ultimate esports. Fans should stay tuned for how Summit Champions League Season 2 plays out.
