Similar to every other Smash event this year, Mang0 did not show up. Shocker there, bud but you know what Mang0 did do this year? He supported Smash Bros.

Which is not the flashiest game, or the biggest game, we don’t have the most money by far, but he did much more than a certain company called Nintendo did.

I’m hoping this year with the circuit they’re doing they hopefully finally give us the chance we never had. Even though we’re not at EVO, and not at a lot of events, Smash is a beautiful game and it deserves to shine.

Mang0 has shown us this game can be the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in esports. Hopefully, this game lives on another 20 years.

Nintendo pulled Smash out of EVO 2022, leaving players excited for the event to return in person high and dry.
