Ravenking advanced out of pools on winners side, playing Joker for every single set. Beginning in the top 64, he used a mix of Ike and Joker to earn a triad of 2-1 set wins. This run included wins over Rafael “Rif Raf” Martinez Treviño, Javier “ShortBloom” Janer-Pacheco, and Guillermo “Stroder Ame” Martinez Jr.
Then in top 8, Ravenking scored a pair of narrow 3-2 victories over Edgar “Sparg0” Valdez and Tanner “SKITTLES!!” Jordan. In Grand Finals, he faced off against his final opponent of the tournament, Enrique “Maister” Hernández Solís. Ravenking won that set 3-1, taking home the gold at the Lunch Box #2.

The Box: Lunch Box #2 was Sparg0’s first online Smash Ultimate event since Domics’ Atomic Arena in June. He marked his return to competition with a very respectable 4th place finish. Along the way, Sparg0 defeated “Sonix,” Spencer “BestNess” Garner, and David “LeoN” Leon.
Placed 4th at the box, beating sonix, bestness and leon and losing to ravenking and maister. Not bad for being my first wifi tournament in a while

This event marked one of LeoN’s best Wi-Fi performances, as he scored many impressive wins en route to 5th place. He made it to Winners Quarters by defeating Antony “MuteAce” Hoo and Luis “Lui$” Oceguera before falling to Maister. LeoN finished his run with wins over Kiyarash “GamingHi9x9” Younessi and Brian “Cosmos” Kalu, who used the recently-buffed Corrin.
Since he was the Lunch Box #2’s fifth seed, Lui$’s 5th place finish may not seem all that impressive on the surface. However, his bracket ended up being much tougher than expected. After suffering an upset loss to LeoN, Lui$ had to eliminate Kolawole “Kola” Aideyan and BestNess, among others. Notably, this was his second win of the season over BestNess. Lui$ also beat BestNess at Get On My Line 2020.
