If you guys have any questions/concerns/comments, just let me know. Make sure to use the google docs link to pre-register, which allows us to plan better (plus its free). Also join the Facebook event page, already 200+ strong when I posted this :laugh:

Is it too late to register for this? I noticed RSVPing was disabled, and it seems like the bracket is already quite big.

For Smash 4, is a wired controller required? My personal preference is the wireless Wii U Pro controller, however I can use my gamecube controller if that is necessary.

you can just register on site. RSVP was only to help us with planning

And you can use any wireless controller but you must have it turned off between matches. If your wireless controller causes a setup to pause/go to menu mid match, you could face possible DQ

I'll be sure to bring my setup. I don't have a GC adapter, but I've got everything else.

Edit: Just found out the only monitor I have doesn't have HDMI. I'll still bring my Wii U, though.
