Hmm, I wonder why Mew2King is not invited. I've heard that he is one of the most skilled Super Smash Bros. players in the world. I think he is more skilled than some of the people going, so that's weird.
But there's a concern that I have about how Nintendo picked the people. See, in order to pick some people, Nintendo probably had to dig through Project M tournament records. Now, I have no idea how against Project M Nintendo is, but, considering how Project M is unauthorized by Nintendo, do you think that the fact that Project M is played in tournaments has influenced Nintendo's decisions on who to invite for their tournament? What I'm trying to ask is, do you think Nintendo might've picked a slightly different set of people if Project M didn't exist? Do you think Nintendo ignored Project M tournament records completely? Do you think Nintendo chose not to invite some people because those people played Project M too much?
Some of these questions may be unnecessary, but I really keep thinking that Project M might have influenced Nintendo's decisions on who to invite a little bit, that they might have chosen slightly different people if Project M didn't exist. Heck, Nintendo may not have invited Mew2King because he has played Project M too much or something along those lines. I've even heard that people and players converse at tournaments. They may even talk about Project M. Do you think Nintendo will allow that type of talk? Well, we don't know. I don't know much about these professional Super Smash Bros. players, or competitive tournaments, anyway.
O.K., enough about Project M. I'm getting too carried away anyway. I just looked up some of the invites on Smash Wiki
and I noticed that almost all of them have played Super Smash Bros. Melee. Some of the Super Smash Bros. Melee players play Project M, but nothing else. However, I also noticed that more of the invites like to play as Peach than any other character. Seeing as you can not play as Peach in the tournament, it's likely to be interesting. Heck, the entire tournament is going to be interesting. I can't believe that there's actually going to be a tournament for a game that's not even released yet! I keep thinking that, for the first minute or so of the players' first match, they're just going to see what all of their character's moves are and they're going to see if some of those advanced Super Smash Bros. Melee techniques work and not even fight. I've heard that these type of players are very sensitive when it comes to video game physics. They want to know about and master each and every game mechanic.
But I may not watch the tournament videos, mainly because I don't want to spoil the game.
