Chronology

Apex 2014 was the fifth installment in the Apex series hosted by Alex Strife. It was held from January 17–19, 2014 at the Doubletree Hotel in Somerset, New Jersey. Sponsors included Twitch.tv, which helped with financing the travel accommodations for several high-level tournament entrants.[1] Live streaming for the event was provided by Team Sp00ky, Clash Tournaments, 8Wayrun, and Bifuteki. Another notable feature of this tournament was the Salty Suite, which was run by VGBootCamp and featured exhibition matches between high level players. In addition to a singles tournament for Super Smash Bros. Melee, there were ten other fighting game tournaments.[2]

The Super Smash Bros. Melee doubles tournament was notable for extending Mew2King's streak of dominance in the teams format as he teamed with Hax to take first over Mango and Lucky. The Melee singles tournament, with 629 entrants, was at the time the second largest Melee tournament by number of entrants. Dr. PeePee claimed first place after defeating Mew2King in the grand finals. Other notable finishes are the Swedish Fox player Leffen's run to fourth place and the Japanese Yoshi player aMSa placing ninth with a character typically considered fairly weak.

Format[edit]

The tournament took place in 3 rounds: Round 1 Pools, Round 2 Pools, Finals Bracket. Both Round 1 and Round 2 were 16 player double elimination brackets. The Finals Bracket was a 4 player double elimination bracket, with 4 players seeded into the Loser's bracket.
