What is the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Circuit?
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Circuit is a lengthy competition that’ll see players in Europe compete for the title of best in the region. Performances at seven different events over the next eight months will be recorded, with the best players overall receiving an invite to a final showdown event where they’ll duke it out for the title of Best in Europe. There’s no date yet for the grand finals, nor a prize pool, and we don’t know how many players will be invited. What we do know is that the qualifying tournaments will run from October 2019 to May 2020, so expect the grand final event to take place shortly after that.
Which tournaments are included?
There are seven tournaments included in the qualifying phase. These aren’t Nintendo-hosted events, they’re tournaments that were already planned to take place in during the coming year such as Dreamhack Winter. However, with the stakes raised, competition should be fierce. It all kicks off with Syndicate. Taking place October 25-27 in the Netherlands, it’ll be our first look at competitors for the throne. Here’s the full list of tournaments, including dates and locations.
When: October 25-26
Where: The Netherlands
DreamHack Winter 2019
When: November 28 - December 1
When: January 9-13
DreamHack Leipzig 2020
When: January 24-26
Tech Republic V
When: March 6-8
When: May 2-3
When: May 11-17
Who can compete?
Anyone who takes part in the tournaments listed above will be able to compete for the position of Best in Europe. If you’re looking to compete though, expect some hot competition. One name that certainly springs to mind is France’s William ‘Glutonny’ Belaid, who’s shown he has more than enough talent to take on the best in America and Japan over the last six months.
