DreamHack Montreal 2019 has already concluded for the weekend. The two games with the most entrants at this particular event was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mortal Kombat 11.

While Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had nearly 400 competing, Mortal Kombat 11 had around 100. As a result, we have top 32 character usage stats for both titles.

Interestingly enough, Ken (from Capcom's Street Fighter series) and Palutena were the two most popular picks within the top 32 portion of the bracket. There were four users for both fighters.

Pikachu was also a common choice as there were three who used the Pokémon. As for Sonic, Pokémon Trainer, and Wario, there were two competitors that made an impact on the bracket with these particular characters.

Meanwhile, Geras, Cetrion, Jacqui, Cassie Cage, Kabal, and Liu Kang had strong showings for Mortal Kombat 11. Notably, it was a solo Liu Kang user that ended up taking the whole tournament.

Do feel free to compare the character usage stats to our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mortal Kombat 11 tiers sections. While this isn't a one-to-one comparison, characters that are often top tier are also quite popular in the tournament scene.
