Last tournament was a bit smaller compared to others, yet it had it's charms such as being the first seeded tournament in Fight To The Finish and featuring many newcomers plus unexpected outcomes. In the end, Gman took 1st place only dropping one game in the entire tournament, Raheem's stream ended as he fell into 2nd, ShinzouMatt spin-dashed his way into 3rd place as his admirers rooted hard, and Xig13 surprised everyone with a 4th place finish. Anyway, welcome to Fight To The Finish #20 where the real question is, where will this tournament series go from here?

The next day, you take to the internet and come across a community of clans for Super Smash Bros. Wii-U. You begin looking through the group seeing many posts about clan wars, people posting highlights of their matches, or seeking other players for competing against. You begin filtering through the posts and members hoping you will find the person you competed against on For Glory while looking at other potential clans. While searching you come across the “Crying Tortillas” who you hear positive things about, but also hear they eat questionable things. Next you see that “Fire Crew” is recruiting, but you want a clan that competes in clan wars instead of primarily focusing on memes. There’s even some person that is begging for you to join their crew “Alpha Warriors”, but you pass on it just seeking the person you fought on For Glory. Eventually you give up, and make a post in the group asking for the person, but are surprised when the clan leader of the person’s clan offers you a try-out. You aren’t prepared mentally, but you give it a shot. You play your heart out and give it your all against the leader even breaking your controller in the process due to the intensity. After the matches you anxiously await for the results of the try-out, hoping for the best.
