Super Smash Bros. Melee fans will have an entertaining event to watch! Yahoo Esports introduced a new tournament called Smash Rivalries, which will take place on April 8-9th in Los Angeles, CA.
The 16-man invitational will feature eight of the top players from each coast. G2 Esports Super Smash Bros. Melee player Weston “Westballz” Dennis will be among those fighting for the West Coast.
You can always expect a new and improved me.
Here is what Westballz had to say while getting ready for the weekend matches: “I always have high expectations for myself but recently I had a couple below average performances. I’m just looking to redeem myself, my team and my fans that always have faith in me. I work hard and I’m a big believer in hard work, so you can always expect a new and improved me. I’m excited to play in the West vs East crew battle since I have really strong counter pick abilities, so it can really help us if we are down or need a lead. This tournament is being held in my hometown, Burbank, which will make things a lot easier for me so I can just focus on my game play and mind set going in. Ready for the weekend and look forward to playing my best.”
