On June 20, 2020, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament "Go For The Gold (and Green) 2.0" was hosted by the UAA Esports Lounge and USF Esports, in partnership with MTA Gaming, for players in their respective states of Alaska and Florida. With over 40 participants, the tournament had some amazing competition with skilled players from the top of the Power Ranking (the system in which competitive Smash players are ranked regionally) in their home cities. After an intense Alaska v. Florida finale, Fortunato on Yoshi won the tournament, representing the Sunshine State.
Next month, the UAA Esports Lounge and USF Esports, in tandem with sponsor GCI, will introduce a new collaboration tournament featuring the popular MOBA League of Legends. This tournament, dubbed "North & South: League of Legends" will take place over four weeks of high-stakes games with a final invitational bracket for the top eight teams.
