Best Ultimate Content Piece: Community Award
The Legend of Game 4 MkLeo by PGstats - 15.6%
A blend of wittiness and intense Ultimate action, this is a non-stop entertaining video that highlights the true vibe of a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament.
Without support from Nintendo, the Smash community has made the competitive scene what it is. The tournaments aren't as polished as the ones you'll see for VALORANT or League of Legends, but they have a distinctive, community-oriented feeling that makes them special.
This video is edited in a great way that really brings out this special vibe. It also has hilarious edits and music that make it even more hilarious. If you want a taste of competitive Ultimate, this is the video to watch.
GRtr4sh is somehow able to make a very entertaining tournament even more so. Within the silliness of this video, there is brilliance. GRtr4sh creates his own fun narratives, and once again makes a fun story filled with great clips and hilarious moments — all to an unusual but beautiful score.
That altogether creates something more than an entertaining video: it reminds us what makes the Smash scene so great, that it’s full of unique and interesting personalities at the same time capable of blowing your mind with their skill. And it just happens to be really enjoyable as well.
