And long coming, since 2010, Hungrybox now beats out Gnes with the claim to the largest sum of money earned from one Smash tournament.

God damn, he actuly got first place at something and not 2nd
All due respect, i love you HBox <3
Congrats Hungrybox! Pretty impressive that a Jigglypuff won this.

On a different note, I can't stand the term "gods". Being called a god for playing a freaking videogame and being good at it? Puh-lease. Talk about cheesy.
When are people going to finally put puff up there with falco/marth/sheik on the tier list?

What a bittersweet tournament. Hungrybox finally takes his US major in an intense top 3 showdown. Wobbles gives it his all for his home state as the last mortal in the tournament, finishing at a stunning 4th place. But we saw PPMD's health drag him in pools, and M2K fail to overcome himself, both in heart-wrenching fashion. I only wish everybody could play their best. :'(
With Plup's win over Mew2king, he has now beaten 5 out of the Big 6 in a serious set. If he ever takes a set off of Armada, he will be the first person to have beaten every member of the Big 6.
Wow... Hbox's game count O.o He's become so consistent and good at adapting mid game. This really might be his year. Incredible to see that aggressive puff go.

Mang0's moonwalking was also crisp, it's amazing to see that he is still improving his movement so much.
