Pound Online 2020 will see some of the biggest players from Smash Ultimate and Melee compete in possibly the biggest event in the Quarantine Series so far.
While the Smash World Tour 2020 has been postponed in its first year, the Quarantine Series aims to fill the void with a number of online events amid the virus pandemic.
What is Pound Online?
After Smash World Tour event Pound 2020 was cancelled, organisers VGBootCamp announced they were bringing the event back with a new worldwide online format.
The event now takes place from Friday 24th April to Sunday 26th April, featuring tournaments in both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Smash Bros. Melee.
What is the prize pool for Pound Online?
The total prize pool across both tournaments is $10,000, with $5,000 on offer for both Melee Singles and Ultimate Singles.
While the cap has been reached for the total number of players allowed for the Ultimate tournament, you can still register to take part in Melee Singles. Registration ends Wednesday 22nd April at 11.59pm PDT. Entry is also free.
