Ludwig "Ludwig" Ahgren has announced his very own Super Smash Bros. Melee Championship Series tournament. If it seems a little out of the blue, it's because Ludwig revealed he launched the tournament out of "petty" revenge against one particularly disgruntled Smash player.

Ludwig has been promising to host "the biggest Smash Bros. tournament" ever for a while now, but developments with the Coronavirus Omicron Variant mean it could be a while before we get the chance to see it. Yet, that hasn't stopped Ludwig from providing his fans with exciting new content. This includes the time he nearly entered a $1 million 1v1 match with Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm and when he held a charity auction, in which he sold his Silver YouTube Button for $32k. 

However, Ludwig decided to take things to a whole new level after an interesting exchange with one particular Smash player. After Ludwig found that the player had some unfair views towards tournament organisers, the YouTuber decided that the player ought to be taught a lesson.

Why Did Ludwig Set Up His Championship Series?

In a video posted on his second YouTube channel, MogulMail, Ludwig went into further detail about just exactly what inspired him to set up a Smash Bros. Championship series. The 26-year-old explained how he had been a little bit more "petty" than usual, particularly after he came across one particularly frustrating Smash Bros. player.

It all started when Genesis "the largest Smash tournament in the world" had to be delayed because of the COVID-19 Omicron variant. Although this meant that the attendees would be out of pocket from the delay for flights and accommodation, Ludwig claimed that the two players who run the tournament would be out of "over $100,000." According to Ludwig, one particularly angry player continued to plague the Genesis' Twitter page, ordering to be given a refund and threatening litigation. So, Ludwig offered to refund him from his own pocket and the two soon struck up a conversation in their DMs. 

Although, the player was still not entirely happy, despite Ludwig doing his best efforts to explain how the event organisers make very little money from the tournament, if any at all. Yet, the player persisted. So, Ludwig paid the Smash Bros. player all the money he had lost from Genesis' delay before saying "I really feel like you should learn to treat people with a little more empathy and respect. At the end of the day, I totally get wanting to have your money back. In fact, I encourage you to do it. But, there are better avenues to do it then to throw a hissy fit on Twitter and threatening litigation and cursing out people [...] And so I'm going to ban you from any events I run in the future." 

Ludwig didn't end there. To really hammer the lesson home, Ludwig then decided to "immediately get back at this guy" and create an online Smash Bros. tournament with $30,001 worth of cash up for grabs for pretty much anyone around North America. Well, all except one at least.

When Is Ludwig's Championship Series? 

According to the website, Ludwig's Championship Series will kick off at 9am (PT) on January 29 until January 30, when the top 12 remaining Smash Bros. players will fight for the load of cash prizes that are up for grabs. This includes a $300 prize for the 13th competitor and $9001 for the winner. 

Nearing the end of his video, Ludwig concluded: "So, out of pettiness I spent 30,000 and one dollars on running the tenth-biggest tournament in all time just to spite some petty as*hole on Twitter". But, he begged his viewers "not try to find this guy. Do not try and flame this guy" because "they're not a real Ludwig viewer if they're gonna be an as*hole."
