As a part of the Nintendo booth, we had a small area with around 16 setups, where we organized a Smash Ultimate tournament for every single day. For SILENTGAMING it was the first time organizing a Smash tournament at an exhibition. Also the SILENTGAMING Overwatch team qualified for the Swiss Gaming Challenge offline grand final on stage and managed to win over March Marmots in five intense games! If you missed out, here's our impressions video for you to enjoy!
We started Friday with a 2vs2 tournament. 64 players signed up to participate in teams. After pool phase and bracket games, we found our double winners.

The 1vs1 tournaments took place on Saturday with 128 attendees and Sunday with 126 attendees. The Swiss Smash community and many enthusiast showed up to fight for pride and honor. The first place winners also took home the prize of a brand new Nintendo Switch console!

We had a blast with everyone and are very happy about the outcome. The tournaments went by very smoothly and as planned. It wouldn’t have been possible if we wouldn’t have had our helpers! Thanks a lot to everyone who reached a helping hand!
Of course it also wouldn’t have been possible without our partner Nintendo, who gave us the opportunity and who provided all setups and the prizes. It was a very pleasant cooperation and we would work with Nintendo again at any time!
Last but not least we would like to thank everyone for participating or for just visiting us at Fantasy Basel! The Smash community, full of positive energy, is truly a gem in this young Swiss esports scene. We had many good talks and surely found new friends, who we can’t wait to see at the next event!
As a THANK YOU to all our family & friends, we are giving away a Nintendo goodie bag from Fantasy Basel on our Twitter in the next few days! So follow us and look out for the specific Tweet for a chance to win the prize! https://twitter.com/SILENTGAMING_CH
