Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s about time I got serious. For over a year now I’ve had this idea. It’s 2019, and it’s time to go in deep and fast. I’m not getting any younger over here. Can’t announce it just yet though. But I’m placing my hand on the pulse of every eSport on the planet and I will do my best to make sure that people are informed. So without further ado, let’s get into the weekend. Also follow me on the twitter account I made for this endeavor. If there are any changes, you’ll hear about it there first.

Poi Poundaz 2

Smash.gg

Honolulu, Hawaii. Home of the Hula Dance, Mauna Kea, and more smash events it seems. Poi Poundaz 2 is probably not pronounced the way you think it is, but it’s still funny.

ONLY THE BEST II

Smash.gg

Only the best what? Only the best Italian Tekken and Smash. Smash Ultimate is taking over the world at the moment. But if you were going through this list looking for some FGC other than smash, here you go! I know I’ll be tuning in. I love Tekken. To answer your question: Yes, it will be broadcast with English commentary. But I’d like to remind you that the provided schedules are subject to change. The smash event will be broadcast in english IF they receive enough international support.

The Halo Classic

Event Page

A 4v4 Halo 3 tournament. Always nice to see older games getting another time to shine. With a $30,000 prize pool, I’m fairly certain that this event will be streamed. But I wasn’t able to locate any information on that. No stream schedule or stream links. All I know is that it begins on Jan 11th, 2019 2:00 PM and ends on 13th Jan.2019 11:55 PM. I will update this post with the relevant information when it becomes available.
