Pressure 2 Krusty Crew Battles
|Pressure 2 Krusty Crew Battles|
Pressure 2 Krusty Crew Battles was a regional tournament held on July 20th, 2019 at the Mentor Civic Center in Mentor, Ohio. The event featured ARMS in its lineup alongside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A Rivals of Aether tournament was also planned, but due to lack of communication between the Rivals of Aether community and the event's organizers, that plan fell through. The tournament was organized by LOSER and Frosty with T.O.JOE providing a recording set up for ARMS once again.
Initially announced on May 29th, 2019, Pressure 2 was the second event in the Pressure series after Pressure in June of 2018. Pressure 2 served as the series finale to Ohio ARMS' sixth Power Ranking Season as well. This was a last minute change as Smash'N'Splash 5 was originally going to serve as the season closer.
Despite "Crew Battles" being in the event's title, no crew battles were held at the event. It was initially planned to have an Ohio vs Saint Louis crew battle as many out of state players hailed from the Saint Louis area, but due to player fatigue it did not occur.
- The name "Pressure" comes from an episode of Spongebob Squarepants of the same name. This is similar to another LOSER and Frosty ran event series: The Biweekly Procrastination. "Krusty Crew" is also a reference to the animated series.
- The Pressure 2 logo was created by LOSER.
- Despite having a recording set up for ARMS, no VODs have ever been uploaded for Pressure 2. This is because the recordings were unfortunately lost.
- As of now, PineappleFreak has won every ARMS tournament held at Pressure events.
- This is the only offline event to have all five of the Ohio ARMS Power Ranking staff in attendance. They include T.O.JOE, PineappleFreak, Frosty, LOSER, and Aiakos.
