Only watched it for the Odyssey gameplay. The 2015 version had this nostalgia factor that makes it interesting, but I think hosting one again now dilutes that. The tournament itself is actually kind of boring for those who watch competitive gaming regularly, and I think here they should stress the fact that they show multiple games including future releases.
If they want to make this a regular occurrence, they should drop the throwback theme of the logo and the name. Or they can keep abusing it the same way the made Super Mario Bros. 1 lose all of its nostalgic values.

That's funny, because I was thinking how much I liked that they were still using the same "totally '80s" logo from 1990, and I hope that they don't change it.
I do think that it's mainly a promotional thing for their own games (which made it strange to me that Pokken Tournament DX wasn't part of it), and the rules are tailored to show off the games rather than for high-level competitive play. (Altho, the whole above ground/underground thing seems needlessly complicated.) But from a casual standpoint, I think it's a fun bit of fan service.
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.
