Apex 2015: Hotel Roof Caves in on the Biggest Smash Tournament Ever

Apex 2015 is the largest Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament ever, with 1000+ and 800+ entrants, respectively. The total prize pool has exceeded $18,000 for Melee Singles alone. It will be streamed primarily on and
The “Super Bowl of Smash” (which just happens to coincide with the actual Super Bowl this year) even managed to get official support from Nintendo itself.
But today it was dealt a huge blow. The roof of the event’s hotel collapsed, and fire marshalls condemned the whole venue:
The collapsed garage at #Apex2015 venue.

Everyone was evacuated and left standing outside in the snow, confused and unsure of what to do next.
This wasn’t merely a freak accident. Robin Harn, one of Melee’s most respected Tournament Organizers, could tell immediately that the venue was sketchy and unsuited to the enormity of the event.
This venue couldn't have held a tourney half of the size of Apex. Fundamental issue that starts with the venue hunt on Day 1.
— Juggleguy @ Apex2015 (@JuggleRob) January 30, 2015

Just to clarify, weather and parking garage collapse aren't really to blame. The venue was poor and shouldn't have been used to begin with.
— Juggleguy @ Apex2015 (@JuggleRob) January 30, 2015

Fortunately, Apex 2015 had also gathered together some of the community’s best minds and most experienced tournament hosts. They all worked like mad to figure out some way to keep Apex 2015 afloat. We are getting things worked out. It's so crazy to see all of the big TOs & staff of smash working.
— MacD (@MacDsmash) January 30, 2015

After much distress and endless phone calls, they succeeded.
It’s no small feat to track down a venue that can hold 2000 people for an entire weekend with only a few hours’ notice. Doing so would be nothing short of a miracle, but the Apex staff, with help from, admirably rose to the challenge.
We're moving to the Garden State Convention Center. This event is still happening. Big thanks @Twitch for this. Tell everyone you know!!!
— D1 @ #Apex2015 (@xD1x) January 30, 2015

God Bless @Twitch is even gonna work on buses to transfer players to the new venue. This could be absolutely incredible w/ everyone's help.
— Alex Jebailey (@CEOJebailey) January 30, 2015

Some of the games’ top players have also managed to stay in good spirits:
Looks like we are having an apex! Lets gooooo!!!!! Give me the bo1 single elim handstand rules I don't care lets just do the darn thing.
— Kevin Nanney (@EG_PPMD) January 30, 2015

Thankfully Apex Staff and others worked magic and the event is happening! However it will be an hour away from this hotel, more details l8r
