Genius League Comet Cup Tournament Recap

Evil Geniuses’ collaboration Super Smash Bros Ultimate tournament with University of Texas at Dallas Esports saw over 136 entrants battle it out to find the best collegiate Smash player in North America and fight for their share of a $1,000 prize pool. 

Fans were able to watch the action unfold on the Evil Geniuses’ twitch channel where they cheered on students in chat, with the games being casted by Rodney Conyers Jr. and Max Ketchum. The top 8 games streamed on Twitch reached a peak viewership of 10,000 concurrent viewers with 30,000 unique viewers throughout the duration of the event. Smash Ultimate was fun, but the Genius League didn’t realize it would smash EG Collegiate records!

“The Genius League Comet Cup was an incredible opportunity to collaborate and deliver a successful event with one of the best collegiate esports programs in the country,” Says Anthony, EG’s Collegiate Lead. “This won’t be the last time you see us work with programs like UTD to deliver new experiences for students.”

“[The] event overall was a big success,” according to Greg Adler, University of Texas at Dallas’ Esports Coach, “I thought we did a great job of running it and felt the participation from college students was great and had a lot of variety.”

With the amount of support the Comet Cup received, the Genius League may be looking to run more collegiate Smash tournaments. Interested in playing in one with us? Let us know and stay up to date with EG Collegiate’s events by joining the Genius League discord here.
