Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ Lopez Perez and Gavin ‘Tweek’ Dempsey, two of the most prominent players available for free agency in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scene, have been recruited by Luminosity Gaming to construct the “best smash roster of all time.”
Both Tweek and MkLeo parted ways with their respective organizations in February, casting doubt on the future of Smash Ultimate esports. Their departures came after the dissolution of Beyond The Summit, an esports tournament organizer well-known for its Smash events, and Nintendo’s decision to cancel the 2022 Smash World Tour finals. In spite of this, Luminosity has swooped in and added both players to their roster just in time for the beginning of the sixth Smash Ultimate Summit.
As a result of the acquisitions, Luminosity now has two of the top ten players in the world for Smash Ultimate on its roster, as well as two players that have a long history of competing against each other. Both of them have held the title of the best player in esports at various points in time, and they have competed against one another in top eights and tournament finals on multiple occasions.
Luminosity signs two huge Smash names
After the game’s release in 2019, they famously competed against each other for the title of the best player in the world. They met in the grand finals of three major tournaments, including Frostbite, Evo, and MomoCon, and MkLeo emerged victorious in two of the three matches. The year 2021 was the two competitors’ most recent meeting in a match for the championship at the third annual Smash Ultimate Summit.
MkLeo has pulled further ahead of Tweek in terms of results, as Tweek has experienced a slump at post-lockdown events, and the Mexican player has continued to dominate in tournaments. Despite the fact that the two have continued to face each other in the bracket, MkLeo has increased the gap between them.
These two will join Super Smash Bros. Melee contender Avery ‘Ginger’ Wilson and top 15 ranked Enrique ‘Maister’ Hernández Sols on Luminosity’s roster of Smash players when they join the organization. Luminosity will be known as Luminosity. As the Smash Ultimate Summit 6 competition begins its bracket on March 24, spectators will see the two players representing Luminosity by wearing jerseys and the colors of their team.
