With the forces of Team Ally and Team ZeRo making their last-minute preparations and players flying into SoCal from all around the world, 2GGC: Civil War is almost upon us. Acting as the first seasonal finisher for the 2GG Championship Series, Civil War is required viewing for anyone interested in Smash 4.
Almost everyone from the PGR v2 is attending Civil War, making getting out of pools as difficult as winning a large regional. Esports Arena and 2GG better be handing out life-jackets at the door, as these pools will be deadly. The brackets will be released at around 9:00 PM ET tonight, so watch out for the resulting explosion on Twitter shortly after their release.
As for the stream schedule for anyone not attending, Friday will solely be devoted to doubles with pools starting at 10:00 AM PST. At 2:00 PM, there will be the special character round robin to determine April’s 2GGC Saga, with top 12 doubles set to begin at 4:00 PM.
Saturday will see singles pools going up to top 96, with top 32 starting on Sunday at 10:00 AM. If all goes to plan, top 8 is set to begin at 2:00 PM with the actual Civil War crew battle kicking off at 6:00 PM. The placement of the Civil War crew battle seems a bit unfair to players, as people will be tired and no doubt a little salty after the conclusion of the event. Let’s hope the crew battle does live up to the huge fanfare it has been given over the past few months.
