Anyone else who brings a full setup will receive a drink coupon and/or other compensation. If you cannot bring a full setup, please bring what equipment you can. We can use everything Remember, the speed of any event is totally dependent on how much equipment is available.



www.hotels.com is a great source for finding cheap to expensive hotels. Just type in the zip code of the venue and it will find you all the hotels within 50miles of the tournament.

If you dislike spending money on hotels, www.couchsurfing.com is an alternative way of finding housing. You might make new friends along the way!

Finally, it wouldn't hurt to post in this thread to see if fellow players are housing for free.

Lucas has joined Smash 4! He will be available as DLC sometime in June 2015 for purchase! If he is released BEFORE TGC 3, he will be legal for TGC 3. If he is released AFTER TGC 3 then he will be legal at TGC 4.

Furthermore, i have created the "Lucas/Wario/Ike Challenge!" The Lucas/Wario/Ike Challenge is super simple. All you have to do is make top 5 in TGC 3's 1vs1 event using ONLY Lucas or ONLY Wario or ONLY Ike throughout the tournament. Whoever does this will receive $50 from me personally as well as get free entry in ALL events for the next TGC event he or she chooses to enter. At TGC 2 Trela took the Mewtwo Challenge and got 2nd place going 100% Mewtwo!

Edit: If for some reason Lucas is NOT released before TGC 2, the challenge will then apply to only Wario and Ike.

I had someone message me earlier with a bit of confusion regarding the Ike/Wario/Lucas.

ALL characters are legal at TGC 3. However, if you reach the required placing with Lucas/Ike/Wario you will get 50$ from me. It's a bonus.


Edit: we really need setups (wiiu+smash4+tv+adapter) for TGC3. It will help everybody play more matches and speed up the tournament.

If you really want to defend your children, main Diddy. Or some other character that isn't low tier. Think about all of the slaughtered new gens! Main Diddy, old man. You have to make sacrifices in order to protect your children.

Diddy is no longer relevant. It's either Swordfighter or go home.

Attention all Houston area smashers! I have a few announcements, updates, questions for everybody. Please read this because it's a lot of important info.

1. TGC 3 is 19 days away aka June 20. All rules and info about the event can be found here: www.smashboards.com/threads/jun-20-2015-the-official-tgc-event-3-feat-lucas-wario-ike-challenge-houston-tx.402642 there is also a character challenge. If you place top 5 with ONLY Lucas or ONLY Wario or ONLY Ike, I will personally hand you 50$.

2. For those of you that have it, are you enjoying Splatoon? I REALLY like the game so far. Extremely bright/happy/unique 3rd person party shooter with great level design. Been playing single player and offline multiplayer with the GF (casual+new gen). She really enjoys Splatoon and is picking it up surprisingly fast. No matter how many times I splatter my ink on her face she wants to go again. Knowing this fact, it lead me to a question....How would you guys/girls feel about me adding a Splatoon 1vs1 offline side event at TGC? It's a simple 5min balloon battle with all stages and all weapons available. You get points for popping balloon and you lose points for getting killed. Covering turf meaning nothing. The Winner is determined by who has the most points at the end of the timer. The Splatoon side event would be a 5$ entry, 1 game, double elimination thing. I'd only allow 2-3 set-ups for the event unless smash 4 turnout is low. I am open to any suggestions in terms of Splatoon. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below.

You can pay for venue as well as 1vs1 or 2vs2 at the door. You do not have to do this online.

Are you talking about payouts for 1vs1 and 2vs2? If so.....


Let's say 100 people enter 1vs1. Each of the 100 players must pay 10$. That is $1000, right?

If 1st place gets 50% that means he gets $500 dollars. See what I mean?

After today's events, Ryu (street fighter) and Roy (fire emblem) have been confirmed to be in Smash 4. We don't know if they will be available to buy before TGC 3. If they ARE available before TGC 3, this will mean that both characters are legal.

Also, DreamLand 64 was confirmed to be in smash 4 too. Again, if it's available before TGC 3 it will be legal. MiiVerse stage is legal at TGC 3 as well.

I will update the rules with more info after tomorrow's SmashBros direct.

Hey, everybody! Xyro here.

Texas largest tournament series (TGC 3) is only 7 days away (June 20th). I need to cover a few super important things in this post so please read everything.

1. Have you seen the Smash 4 character/stage leaks? Roy (fire emblem) and Ryu (street fighter) are confirmed to be playable characters in Smash 4. The stage DreamLand 64, Ryu's stage and Miiverse stage will also be playable in Smash 4. A patch comes out tomorrow to enable all of these features to be played. Some free DLC (miiverse stage) and some is paid DLC (lucas/roy/ryu) will be ready for download. If these characters and stages are available BEFORE TGC 3 (next Saturday) then they will ALL be legal at the event.

2. Full Set-ups (wiiu+tv+ssb4+adapter). As always, TGC 3 will need as many full set-ups as possible in order to run smoothly. If you bring a full set-up, you will get half your venue fee back and/or get free drinks from ABK. Also, If Roy/Lucas/Ryu/new stages are available before TGC 3, it is expected you have as much of that DLC as possible. It is NOT REQUIRED but highly recommended. The ONLY thing that IS required is that your WiiU MUST have the most recent update. These balancing patches are mega important to have.

3. Please be at the venue by 10am for sign-ups, checkin, practice and setting up. I will be there at 9am so if you would like to be there THAT early you can. We can practice together or talk or whatever you want.

4. There is an Ike/Wario/Lucas challenge at TGC 3. If any player reaches top 5 and he/she went ONLY Wario or ONLY Lucas or ONLY Ike.....he/she will receive 50$ from me on top of whatever you make from the pot. I do these challenges at alll TGC events to promote/reward character usage.

5. I will be challenging Trela's MiiSword to a $50MM vs my Samus. I have never lost to Trela in a Smash 4 tournament or MM. I will win.

6. For more info on TGC 3 (rules, times, prices and more) please go here: http://smashboards.com/threads/jun-...-lucas-wario-ike-challenge-houston-tx.402642/ If you have any questions, PLEASE message me, tag me or something. I will help you in any way i can.

MY FRIENDS, THE TIME HAS COME! The largest Smash 4 event in Texas, TGC 3, is tomorrow (6/20/2015 aka Saturday)! Please read this post for last minute info and instructions. Very important stuff.

1. I will be at the TGC venue around 9am. If you wish to be there by 9am to set-up/register/check-in/practice or chat with the LEGENDARY Xyro, please feel free. 2vs2 starts at 12pm and singles will start at 2pm. The registration/check-in lines will be long (TGC events always get 100 or more players) so the earlier you are the better things will be. Once an event starts, you will NOT be allowed to enter. I will NOT hold a spot for you. Leave your house EARLY.

2. Please please please bring a full set-up (WiiU/Tv/Ssb4) to TGC 3. The more set-ups we have the faster this event will end and the more time you will have for friendlies/MMs …etc. If you bring a full set-up you will get half of your venue fee back and/or free soda/water/energy drink. If you cannot bring a full set-up I beg you to bring anything you can. All equipment will help TGC be a better experience.

3. Though not required, bringing $5 or 10$ bills will help me out tremendously. So if you can, please bring 5s or 10s. I accept all bills though.

4. Make sure you have all the DLC (mewtwo/ryu/roy/dreamland 64/suzuka castle/miiverse) and the latest patch (1.0.8) for Smash 4. The DLC characters/stages are not REQUIRED to be on your WiiU but they are HIGHLY recommended. The patch MUST be downloaded no matter what. We would like everybody to be on the same page.

5. There is an Ike/Lucas/Wario challenge at TGC 3. If a player reaches top 5 and ONLY uses 1 of the 3 characters (Lucas/Ike/Wario) the entire tournament, I will personally hand you $50 on top of what you will make for reaching top 5.
6. Please be familiar with the rules of Smash 4 for TGC 3. The rules, events, fees, food menu and everything else you would like to know can be found here: http://smashboards.com/threads/jun-...-lucas-wario-ike-challenge-houston-tx.402642/

7. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me on Smashboards (Xyro77) or Twitter (Xyro77) or FaceBook (Allan Xyro Sims). Remember, what I type/say is the OFFICIAL word. So if you are getting mixed info from other players/users, please run it by me and I will clarify.
