Super Mario Maker 2 Versus Mode Tournament at the PACE 2020 Speedrun Convention

GSA and VGBootCamp just announced their PACE Speedrun Convention, which will take place on May 21th through May 24th 2020. They revealed a Super Mario Maker 2 Versus Mode tournament as well. The tournament will have a minimum price pool of $3000, so don’t expect anyone to go easy on their competitors.

There will be some big name players participating, like Thabeast721, LilKirbs14, and of course the king of Versus Mode iiPk, who consistently has 5+ characters in the top 10 of the official Versus Mode leaderboard.

Super Mario Maker 2 at AGDQ 2020

While it’s not officially announced yet, rumor has it Super Mario Maker 2 will be played at Awesome Games Done Quick 2020.

Like in previous events, there will be a 4v4 blind relay race. No word yet on who will be creating the levels, but they’re usually really high quality, so it should be a lot of fun to watch (and play later).

The racers will be Aurateur, BarbarousKing, CarlSagan42, GrandPOOBear, Juzcook, Ryukahr and Thabeast721. Unfortunately Trihex (who was also scheduled) was banned from playing at AGDQ2020, so he will be replaced.

Edit: PangaeaPanga will be replacing Trihex.

More information will follow as it becomes available. As usual, this will include dates/times/VODs and of course (after the event) the Course IDs for the levels played in the relay race.

Keep an eye on our AGDQ2020 page for future updates.

The Speedoran Jam 4 Finals Have Been Played

The Speedoran Jam 4 tournament ended a bit anticlimactic when the upper bracket winner had to leave early (the tournament had been going for about 6 hours), and the lower bracket winner was declared the winner of the tournament. However, both players still wanted to play out the final round, and they found the time to battle it out about a week later.

If you missed the finals, check out our Speedoran Jam 4 page for a link to the VOD. You can also find the level IDs for all the levels that were played at the tournament there as well.
