If last week was the North with Get On My Level 2017 and Defend the North, this week is about going down South with Low Tier City 5 in Texas and Smash Factor 6 hitting Mexico City.
This is Smash Tour.

Aside from those two larger events, there’s not much else happening even on a Regional level this weekend. So tune into those! See you next week!
