Ludwig’s Super Smash Bros. Invitational came to its conclusion on October 23, leaving its attendees plenty of stories to tell. The event found a saving grace in Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson after he stepped in to sponsor it following a lack of funding.

Frequent collaborator Aiden/Aimen Calvin was one of the tournament’s many competitors, though his results left Ludwig bewildered.

“Big thank you to Aimen…for getting it done against all odds! And he only lost over $100,000!” exclaimed Ludwig.

Recoiling behind his hand, Ludwig’s long-time friend clarified it was actually “$200,000.”

“Do you know? Twitch drama’s over! Twitch drama’s over! You piece of sh*t! We’re gonna lose it all.”

Jokes aside, Aiden shared his thoughts on the tournament’s overall success on social media. The competitor explained that he “can’t help but feel we’ve ultimately lacked the polish and viewership for this event to be truly historic.”

“I’m very happy with the number of matches streamed, schedule, and format. Hope everyone enjoys top 16 tomorrow,” Aiden added.

It’s likely that another tournament could be on the cards, but we’ll have to wait and see what Ludwig plans next.
