Royal Flush Smash

Get ready to hit the sticks and the tables as Super Smash Bros. heads to Atlantic City this May. With a $10,000 combined pot for both Melee and Smash 4 and hosted at the Tropicana Resort and Casino, Royal Flush is set to be one for the high rollers. Both games will have their finals in the grand Tropicana Showroom Theater, so expect quite the show if you choose to attend this event.

Going with the casino theme and as a result of discussions about the length of Melee’s in-game timer, Royal Flush will be trialing a seven minute timer instead of the usual eight minutes. I doubt it will cause that many changes to normal games but it is worth an experiment at a large event like this.

If you are interested in heading to Atlantic City this May, early bird registration is available till the end of March where prices will increase from $40 to $50. Spectator passes will also be available and the Royal Flush TO team are planning to have a hotel promo code on their smash.gg page post-haste.

With TSM|Leffen, Liquid|Hungrybox, CLG|SFAT, Hax$ and more already signed up to attend, Royal Flush is looking like an event worth attending near the beginning of this year’s summer of Smash.
