Vote for me for the 2GGC: Midwest Mayhem Saga Compendium!

The February saga for 2GGC has been revealed as the Midwest Mayhem Saga! They are allowing any Midwest players opt in to a voting system where the two players with the highest amount of votes on Monday January 16th will be added to the compendium to receive funding to travel to the saga!

I have opted myself in and I am trying to get as many votes as I can so that I can attend this tournament. Ever since the first 2GGT tournament I have always wanted to attend a 2GG saga, and with your help this could be my opportunity to do so. If you would like to vote for me, go to my profile on the player voting page, and click nominate. Tweet out your nomination and it will count for more votes. Thank you for the support!

If you are unsure if you want to vote for me, here is my profile with my reasons why I should get the nomination:

I am Benjamin "JJROCKETS" Rowe, a Smash 4 player from Chicago, IL. People often call me the "tournament fiend" because I have competed in perhaps the most tournaments out of any player; in 2016 I attended 190 tournaments across 14 states (and once in Canada). I love traveling to other regions where I can meet new people and push myself to be even stronger as a competitor. My goals for the future are to win a national tournament and to become known as one of the best players in the world. The opportunity to attend a 2GGC tournament would help me tremendously to push me towards accomplishing that goal.

Some of my notable wins this year have been over players such as Ally, Komorikiri, Hyuga, iStudying, Rich Brown, MVD, Angel Cortes, Frozen, Kie, Shogun, Saj, Charliedaking, Karna, Kooliad, Remzi, Aphro, Ned, Darkshad, MJG, Tyroy, and Ksev.
