With the end of the voting period for Smash Ultimate Summit 3, all participants of the most popular invitation event in Super Smash Bros Ultimate are now known. In addition to a number of regular invitees and two qualifiers, other players can apply for other places in the event. Of all the players who entered the voting process, only six can be invited to participate in Ultimate Summit 3 in Los Angeles, California. The event will take place from August 26-29, 2021.
With special campaigns in which candidates for donations pulled all the stops to get as many votes as possible, the voting process was an event in itself. For example, the nomination was briefly influenced by bots, and some players got help from wealthy fans who bought a lot of votes.
These six players have earned enough votes to be invited to Smash Ultimate Summit 3. Many of these players are famous, but they are also known as content creators: Aaron is one of the most popular Smash players on Twitch, CLG VoiD is famous for his innovations with Sheik and Atomsk is King of Dedede Veteran of Super Smash Bros Brawl.
The two players who missed out on voting are Peanut and PG WaDi. However, organizer Beyond The Summit also called these two players as VIPs for Smash Ultimate Summit 3: they can replace players if they can’t enter the US due to problems.
