Press release:
ATLANTA – May 17, 2018 – Titans of Super Smash Bros. including MKLeo, Dabuz, Wizzrobe and more will face off over a combined prize pool of more than $15,000 at MomoCon 2018. The fourteenth annual MomoCon will host panels from Blizzard and eSports industry professionals, as well as more than 35 different console competitions and PC gaming tournaments. MomoCon will take place Thursday, May 24 – Sunday, May 27 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

ANTi, Dabuz, Wizzrobe, Cosmos, Larry Lurr, and others will vie for the top spot in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. 4. Twitch’s xD1x will be on hand to cast for Smash tournaments along with five other talented casters to cover both tournaments.

In partnership with one of the top Smash event organizers, MomoCon 2018 will host 2GG’s first official event outside of California, the Captain Falcon-themed Round Robin. This special tournament is a tribute to Atlanta’s own Fatality, known as one of the masters of Captain Falcon.

Players looking for a challenge should visit Smash.gg to register to participate in MomoCon’s more than 24 console tournaments including Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Brawlhalla and more. Additional casual competitions will be available the whole weekend.

Heroes of the Storm players can look forward to a panel with Blizzard called Streamers of the Storm. Aspiring eSports professionals can sit down with Kevin Hong and Mark Candella of Twitch, Sabrina Wong of Immortals GG and a representative of ELEAGUE for advice on getting into the business. Fans of eSports can join ANTi, Kevin Wallace of Ghost Gaming and D1 for an hour discussing eSports in general.

PC gaming enthusiasts can participate in competitive matches for Overwatch, League of Legends and Fortnite in partnership with Southeast Games. Georgia Esports League will also host tournaments for Brawlhalla, Paladins and SMITE. Registration for these LAN events will be available on site. MomoCon has partnered with Dreamhack, who will be supplying 200 gaming PCs for a separate PC Freeplay area.

“This year’s lineup is perfect for fans of eSports and professionals alike,” said Chris Stuckey, co-chair, MomoCon. “We want MomoCon to be an event where you can not only celebrate your favorite players and games, but also a place where you can grow and learn more about the industry.”
