Comic Palooza will be providing 12 TVs but will not be providing anything else. This means we need full set-ups pretty badly. Please bring a WiiU+TV+SSB4 and your adapter aka a FULL SETUP. If you cannot bring a full setup, just bring whatever you can because anything will help. Remember to have all stages, all characters (mewtwo counts) and have the latest software update for SSB4 installed.

Will there be any other game besides Sm4sh?
Smash 4 will be the only game for prize money.

Mario Kart 8 and Mortal Kombat 10 will have smaller events with prizes that do not involve money.

On Monday i will post up a list of spots taken and spots open. Once the con starts on the 23rd, all remaining open spots are up for grabs to the general public. This is a convention event so the spots will fill up in 20mins.

Hi Xyro,

This is the first event I will ever attend to in USA (Foreign) I'm going to be attending the Saturday tournament, I just want to make sure I don't buy extra paks/comboos/etc I don't need. Do I just need to pay the Saturday $35.00 fee or is there anything else I need to purchase. Please advise soon. Thanks a lot!

Yes. Just buy the con badge ($35), email me a receipt and I'll guarantee you are put into the bracket.

If I may, where are you from?

Will there be a loser's bracket at the tournament?
Yeppers. Always.

Very important reminder about Comic Palooza 2015!!!!!

Comic Palooza and its $1,000 guaranteed prize pool for Smash WiiU 1vs1 tournament is exactly 7 days away (May 23rd 2015). The con has placed a cap of 128 players due to the multiple thousands of con goers that will be at the venue that weekend ready to enter the event. If you wish to be apart of the 128 smashers fighting for a piece of the 1k up for grabs, i need you to go to the first post of this thread and follow the instructions on buying a Comic Palooza badge. Once you buy this badge, please send me an email (was7x@hotmail.com) with a receipt of the badge purchase as well as your GAMER TAG. Doing this will GUARANTEE you a spot in the 128 man bracket and the convention.

As of 11pm on May 16 2015, these are the people i have guaranteed a spot in the 128 man bracket:

Xyro
GrimTurtle
LecherousTortoise
Uwotm8
Jazzy
Malas
ThreeDog
MrRecluse
ZenArkain
Jaz
Dskro
FullMetal
Gigs
LandCrab
QuackyDuck
Scrunks
RT
Espy
KingOfSaiyans
Flavio
Mbohne
Samboner
Krebs
GimmeMoraThat

24 of the 128 spots are taken.

If your name is not on the list and you sent me an email with your badge receipt+gamer tag, resend the email AND message me on Smashboards or on FB so that we can confirm you a spot. For the rest of you who have not signed up yet, i strongly urge you to register for this event ASAP because once i open registration for the general public (con goers), the spots will be eaten up immediately. Meaning, i am offering my smash children a special chance to get a shot at 1k prize money.

Furthermore, we need full setups. If you can bring a WiiU+TV+SSB4+Adapter this would help the event run fast. If you cant bring a full setup, please bring what you can because anything helps.

If you need more info, please message me on FB, smashboards, email me or tag me in a post and ill answer as much as i can. I hope to see you all at Comic Palooza 2015 in 7 days!!!!!!!!!

i sent you an email thiis mornig and was just wondering if you recieved it
Yes.

Hi I sent you an email just now from justin.david.miller@hotmail.com just wanted to check and see if you got it, thanks
Yep
Got it.







Alrighty, girls/guys. The 1k dollar pot prize for 1vs1 smash wiiu at Comic Palooza 2015 is TOMORROW! Please be in the game room by 10am for sign-up/check-in/set-up and practice. 1vs1 starts at noon.

There are 88 players that have already pre-reg with me and I have a 2 page list of con goers who want to enter as well. They will most def cap this event but I am still offering you, my children, a chance to enter the event before the rest. So to GUARANTEE a spot for yourself, you must send me an email with your gamer tag AND the receipt from purchasing your con badge. 11:30pm tonight is the deadline. If you can't pre-reg with me by then, you run the risk of trying to enter the event at the door.

We also need WiiU+Ssb4+adapters+tvs so please help us all out by brining equipment.

If you need more info, please read here: www.smashboards.com/threads/may-23-2015-comic-palooza-2015-1000-guaranteed-pot-for-smash-4-houston-tx.388710/
