The major Smash Bros tournament Shine 2018 went down this weekend in Boston. Between singles and doubles tournaments in Smash Bros Melee, 64, and WiiU, there was plenty of action across the event. Here are the full Shine 2018 results.
Super Smash Bros Melee Shine 2018 Results – Zain, Mang0, and HungryBox Battle
The Shine 2018 Melee tournament was full of excitement. With a solid player list and Ninja offering to add $50k to the prize pool if Mang0 won, there was a lot to play for.
But it was Zain who ruled most of the tournament. He upset Melee Gods HungryBox and Mang0 before finals. Although HungryBox battled back to the Grand Finals, Zain proved it was no fluke and beat him again to take the win.
Over in the doubles tournament, SFAT and PewPewU beat Swedish Delight and Plup with their Fox and Marth duo, winning the $4,000 prize.
