So word got around pretty fast that the EVO Japan Super Smash Bros Ultimate Champion will only receive a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller?
I mean, we’ve always known Super Smash Bros to be the runt of all fighting competitions as it pertains to winnings, but this is a new low… And if that weren’t bad enough, there aren’t any second place prize!
Don’t believe me? Check out the list of 1st & 2nd place winnings/prizes we found courtesy of Dale Michael of Dot ESPORTS:
This is by far one of the most difficult competitions in all of Super Smash Bros events, not to mention the fact that there are more entrants than any other fighting event, and the winner gets a Nintendo Switch Pro controller? Worse part is that 1st place winners for all other fighting events win either $4500 $9000! Even second place winners win something, which makes winning a controller (even if it comes with a Gold Smash Mark that much sadder.
I only wonder that if EVO Japan is willing to do, not to mention get away with this, will all other competitions begin to treat Super Smash Bros like this.
What do you think?
