Welcome to a preview event of Houston’s new tournament series Texas Gaming Championships. This new series, starting with The Road to TGC, marks the beginning of a new chapter in Texas competitive gaming as a whole. TGC is nothing like you have experienced before and will be crafted and perfected by you, the player. Though some games may not be available at first, this series will feature Smash Bros Wii U/3DS, Mario Kart 8, Pokemon X & Y, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Ultra Street Fighter 4 and much more. Forget what you think you know about Texas gaming scene and come check out our 2nd pilot event, The Road to TGC!

Houston, TX, 77057
(713) 785-6700

Event Fees:

Venue Fee = FREE! Players will not be charged a door fee at this event and all attendees can get your tickets on EventBrite. Purchasing your ticket will guarantee you a spot in the venue but if venue capacity is reached, only those with tickets will be let in. Meaning, you do not have to have a ticket but you risk coming to a maxed out venue and being turned away. Be safe, get a ticket and either show us at the venue or show us the ticket on your phone.

FREE food for players who enter at least one event will have access to chicken tenders, chips and drinks sponsored by AirbrushKing. This is a first come first served situation with limited quantity so please be at the venue on time and we will serve as many players as possible.

Smash WiiU+3ds 1vs1= $10
Smash WiiU+3ds 2vs2= $20 ($10 per person)
Mario Kart 8= $10



Payout:

Smash 4 1vs1/Mario Kart 8/Smash 4 2vs2
1st=55%
2nd=30%
3rd=10%
4th=5%



Rules:

All rules for the venue and any event you wish to enter can be found here. Please remember that all game rules are subject to change at any time so keep checking back.


Set-ups:

I strongly recommend players bring a TV/WiiU/Kart 8/Smash WiiU. All controllers (3ds, wiimote+nunchucku, wiiu pro, wii pro, GCN) are legal except the WiiU tablet. If you decide to bring a 3ds and use it as a controller for the WiiU version you MUST bring the 3ds smash game as well. A full setup is extremely important to the speed of the event so please please help me out.

Is there a tournament ruleset for the Wii U version yet?
No. The game isn't out yet. I'll have a rule set out the day after the game comes out.

Stuff like 3 stock, 7min, no items are returning though. Same as we did for the 3ds version.

Now that we know smash WiiU can have 8 man battles, I might be adding a 4vs4 side event to this TGC event.

Question: should this be a crew battle or teams or a FFA?

Please vote.

4v4 sounds incredibly gross. I will definitely have the new cap card before this tourney. But will youtube support 60fps vids by then...?

YouTube supports 60fps videos now, but they have to be in 720p/1080p. Not sure how things will go by uploading them, though.

It should be more fun to be able to see every match without having to be 2 feet behind the person.. lol.

Definitely going to this one too ^_^. TGC 1 was fun.

I already did a video test, so I'm ready to record them. But a whole set will take a while to upload.

Changes have been made to the first post.


If players wish to use their 3ds as a controller for the WiiU version of smash, they MUST bring the 3ds smash game as well. The WiiU will not recognize the 3ds unless it has 3ds smash in it.

Also, i STRONGLY encourage all players to bring a WiiU/Smash WiiU/TV/Kart 8 so that we can end this thing on time. Full set-ups are needed more than anything else at this event.

I'll help out in taking my wiiU with smash and MK8 and a TV. Also, any news on when/where we'll see the matches posted from this last one?

If things go well for the release you can count on me to bring my setup.

I am unsure, gold mega man. They lost at TGC 1 and then again the very next weekend on their home turf. But that was 3ds so maybe they will return for revenge on the WiiU. That c-stick changes everything.







For those going to the Road to TGC 2 on Dec 6th (it's 26 days away), take a read real quick :)


Each player is responsible for their own WiiU in terms of stages/characters/custom moves. If you get placed on a WiiU that does not have a certain stage/moves/character, you will have to deal with what's there so PLEASE PLEASE have as many custom moves/stages/characters unlocked as possible!

Also, if you do not have a WiiU, you can still enter the tournament with your 3ds as it can connect to the WiiU as a controller but you MUST bring the 3ds smash game and the 3ds in order for this to work.

One last thing, we desperately need full setups. WiiU/kart 8/smash4/TVs is considered a full setup. Please please help this event run faster by bringing full setups.

Edit: please have the latest patch and stage/character DLC for Smash WiiU/Kart 8 as they will be required for smooth tournament play.

The satisfaction of being part of something bigger than yourself.

I'll be bringing 3 TVs and a Wii U with Kart/DLC and Smash Bros w/ 1 GC adapter.

Everyone who brings a full setup (kart+WiiU+TV or smash 4+wiiu+TV) will be compensated at the next event I do. Be it reduced venue fee or free entry into a side event....something. Your work will not go unrewarded. I'll just need to collect your info as soon as you bring the full set-up.


Nanasuki, I highly recommend HD TVs. The days of the CRT are over. Let melee/brawl nerds enjoy that ancient tech.

There is no venue fee. If you bring a full setup I'll reward you at the next TGC you attend.

Housing, yes, sync still houses. He has a mini fest the night before TGC. Great practice before the big day.

I am also curious if Dallas is coming as well. My recording setup is intended to be a spillover for matches that should be recorded but can't wait because of time restraints. But if they don't go, I would not mind having it be the main recording setup. Just no commentary.

Xyro, I got you covered. I am getting a new 2TB hard drive today. So I'll have 4TB of storage on hand for the tourney. Should cover 12+ hours of recording...I hope.

Hey guys, tonight around 2am central time, the 1st Mario Kart DLC pack will be released. TGC 2 will support the DLC for its Mario Kart 8 event so it is in your best interest to get the DLC and train on the new stages before TGC 2.

To see what you get in the DLC pack, go here: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...around_the_legend_of_zelda_x_mario_kart_8_dlc


Also, for those of you that want early practice on the final WiiU version of smash 4, GameStop is doing a smash WiiU demo from 6pm-9pm on Nov 14th. This practice, along with the 15 days of practice after the release of Smash WiiU on Nov 21st is a decent head start in preparation for TGC 2.

To see a list of locations that have the WiiU smash demo, please go here: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/pages/events/SuperSmashBros_Demo/
