Pressure was a regional tournament held on June 28th, 2018 at the Mentor Civic Center in Mentor, Ohio. The event featured ARMS in its lineup alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Sonic the Fighters, and a free to enter Mario Tennis Aces side event. The tournament was organized by LOSER and Frosty while T.O.JOE ran the recording setup for ARMS. Instead of running a double elimination bracket as planned, it was decided to have a best-of-five round robin format due to low entrant numbers.
Initially announced on April 21st, 2018, Pressure was created as an attempt to bring more offline ARMS events to Ohio and the Midwest. Pressure also served as the series finale to Ohio ARMS' third Power Ranking Season. In order to abide by the tournament organizers' schedules, it was decided to have the event be annual instead of weekly or monthly.
