.@GameTyrantExpo comes to Salt Lake City on November 2-4, 2018

This week, @GameTyrantExpo disclosed plans for their next amazing event. As a follow-up to the incredible success their event saw last year, they are making their way to Utah on November 2-4 to host a variety of titles at the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake City.

The lineup will be spearheaded by both Smash Wii-U and Smash Melee, but what caught everyone's attention was the inclusion of the logo for the Smash Switch title, which was announced via a Nintendo Direct hosted back in March. The GameTyrantExpo team has since confirmed that if the game releases before November, it will in fact be included with its sibling titles. Thus far, all that is known about the release date for Smash Switch is that it will arrive this year.

Along with the Smash family, GameTyrantExpo will feature brackets for Dragonball FighterZ, Overwatch, Fortnite and League of Legends. At this event, it's not just the FGC's corner of esports that will shine, but all of esports as a whole.

Registration for the event has already gone live and can be found at their SmashGG page. The event is offering an early bird special of a $55 venue fee plus another $10 per game.

For all competitors attending, a prize pool totaling up to $22,000 will be split across all titles at varying amounts. They are as follows:

  • $5,000 Melee Singles
  • $1,000 Melee Doubles
  • $5,000 Wii U Singles
  • $1,000 Wii U Doubles
  • $5,000 Smash Switch Singles (IF IT IS RELEASED)
  • $1000 Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • $1000 Overwatch
  • $1000 League of Legends
  • $1000 Fortnite Singles
  • $1000 Fortnite Duos

GameTyrantExpo made its debut last year as the first esports event to be featured inside an NBA arena. To be specific, the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. Naturally, the event was met with extreme skepticism from the community, but they opted to take a leap of faith and see what GameTyrantExpo had to offer. They walked away feeling incredibly eager for the next Expo.

The first GT Expo featured around 350 entrants apiece for both Smash Melee and Smash Wii-U. The paths through both brackets are decorated by astonishing matches that have colored the memories of Smash players, regardless of their title of preference. When you relive the grand finals for both games, we're highly certain you will agree.
