Smash Summit - Spring 2017
Smash Summit - Spring 2017 is a tournament hosted by Beyond the Summit (BTS) that features ten invited players and six players voted by the community. This is the fourth iteration of the tournament series.
Beyond the Summit aims to create a "behind the scenes" oriented tournament, inspired by TakeTV's Homestory Cup in StarCraft 2, where the fans can see sides of their favorite players that they don't normally get to see. To achieve this the tournament is held at the BTS House in Los Angeles, where the crew currently lives and works.
A $10,000 USD prize pool was announced for singles, and a $5,000 USD prize pool was announced for doubles. Through crowdfunding, the singles prize pool has been increased to $47,069 USD, and the doubles prize pool has been increased to $12,500 USD.
