Yesterday, Twitter voting for the Dragon Ball FighterZ Summit of Power nomination phase was opened. As previously reported, Beyond The Summit is allowing any unqualified players who’ve placed within the top 32 of Winter Brawl 12 or Final Round 2018, or made top 16 at either NorCal Regionals 2018, Anime Ascension 2018, Brussels Challenge: Major Edition, Michigan Masters 2018 or Super TSB 2018 to opt-in to the nomination process.

Each nominee will have a unique tweet button, with each tweet counting as a vote, limited to 1 vote per Twitter account (though you can connect your Twitter on smash.gg for 10 nominations). The top 20 will advance to the final round of voting, of which only 5 will emerge to fill the remaining spots in the Summit of Power. Eight players have already been invited, with another pair qualifying on the East and West Coasts. There will also be a Last-Chance Qualifer at Combo Breaker 2018, in St. Charles, Illinois May 25-27. The Summit of Power will take place June 8-10th in Los Angeles, California, and will be streamed on twitch.tv/beyondthesummit.
