Smash Ultimate Summit 5 just wrapped up with historic and shocking results, but some of the top-placing players are already looking towards their next major this weekend. Glitch: Regen is kicking off over the weekend. This will be three full days of action, and going to host some of the top players from Summit have another crack at a major win.
Glitch: Regen 2022 is going to be a Smash Bros Ultimate tournament held in Laurel over September 23-25. The event is only going to feature Ultimate. No Melee around. It’s part of the Smash World Tour circuit with 400 points for the winner at stake. There’s no prize pool here, but the points will go a long way in the standings for the season.
The event features 422 players, a wide net for pools. Here they compete in groups before getting moved into the final bracket. Top players will face each other in a double-elimination format with the best player at the end of it all walking away as the champion.
Glitch Regen is largely going to be solos. However, the event is going to feature a doubles tournament too. There’s a Squad Strike event happening too. The singles tournament is definitely the main event though.
