hey all, just so everyone knows. I have Bi-Weeklies going during the week, [cheaper venue!] and This months Portal Smash is definately is going to be decent, but Portal Smash 4 we should hopefully have the full stream setup and i'm going to try to attract some of the better players in our region to come out. This tournament I so far have Inui probabley coming, and im trying to see if i can bring some other top NJ Players. I may change the tournament fees to $10 for next portal smash in august [not this current one cuz its too short notice imo i wanna ask people when the tournament is happening] so that way the prize support is better for the people placing top3 and to increase the competition :D
What do you guys think about that tho?

I'm probably coming to this, but the price increase will most likely keep me out of Project M singles (and doubles if the Melee doubles ends up happening). Also, is the $5 doubles fee per player or per team?

Sorry about the price increase, it was a hard decision but i felt it would make the better players come out of their caves, i have a biweekly series with much more fun and cheaper prices, This event im trying to make more official.
and yes its $5 per person [which makes 10$ per team]

**Read This** So after double checking what we got, I'm trying to have 8-9 setups for this tournament, 4 being P:M singles, 2 Being Doubles [melee/P:M Wii's would be preferable], and 2-3 Melee Singles [or wii's that could convert to melee/more GCs]. We just need slight help reaching this goal.
We have 4 Wii's with P:M and 5[maybe 6 if the other CRT gets shipped here in time, im factoring in that we dont get it tho] CRTs so P:M is pretty much set [along with Craig Cadenelli bringing in a P:M (are u bringing a CRT?) and Eric Lapp with a GC+CRT], if 2 people would like to make the tournament easier and bring in a Wii with P:M and also regular melee for our doubles setsups, it would be cool, otherwise we will have to swap setups around at some point [cuz we are having doubles on the couches so people arent blocking the entrance] which would cut playtime for friendlies and hold up the tournament -.-
So basically what im asking is if anyone coming can comment if they could help bring in the following [please and thanks ]
#1 We need someone to please Bring In A Melee Disc. [we have 2 GCs with 2 memory cards, but only 1 disc, the owner ordered melee last week but it might not get here in time]
#2 We need atleast 1-3CRTs and 2 more full setups preferably Wii's with P:M [brawl disc] that can also run melee [melee disc & have the memory card] xP so we can have easily ran doubles.
Thanks for reading, hope someone can help us out

I'm considering going for the Melee singles, depending on what my buddies are doing tomorrow. I'm pretty close by so it's not totally out of the question of going on my own, though.

Hey All 2 Day Reminder as usual
Hyperbolic Time Portal is Actually going to have a Stream this Thursday!
I'm quite excited [Shoutout to Eggm for bringing a stream setup for this event].
Things are getting better and better every week lately.
Weeklys are staying 20-30strong for P:M every week [Melee players need to come hype Portal up! Come thru ] and people really like the changes so we are keeping it the same way. [1v1 events 1st, then if people wanna stick around for some friendlies 2v2s or whatever we can do so afterwards so that way people who dont have the time can go home and space opens up for more free play].
Looking Forward to Smashing with you guys this thursday.
Thanks

Hey I might want to come, I'm probably only going to enter melee because I have no Idea what project M is(cut me some slack I'm new here >.<) I might also enter brawl if the brawl tourney ends before the melee tourney. I might do bad in the tournament also but I still want to see how players play so I can get bettter. I don't really have any friends or people to like, guide me around the tournament so if any one would be willing to guide a kid around that'd be great.

Brawl wont happen until after melee/P:M cuz it would hold up the main events, so if u wanna play brawl you would have to stick around til the end. but other than that thats awesome and i look forward to seeing you this saturday :D

Yesterday went well thanks all that came
Tomorrow is our Saturday monthly event,
"Portal Smash #4" [$10venue, $10per tourny, 1v1s and 2v2s for Melee/P:M]
Last month we had a rather impressive turnout [my largest event honestly] with 49 in the venue [27 for melee and 29 for P:M]. We have a better idea of what to expect tomorrow so things should go smooth, we still don't have a stream unfortunately but it should still be a good time. We might need a Setup or 2 so please msg me if you have a Small CRT Tv + Wii/GC [where can i just buy some?]. Also we definately need at least 2 melee discs if we want melee to go super smooth, we have 3 melee setups, and 4-5 P:M {if i can get my wii back from getting fixed in time for the tournament}

Hey Smashers, This is this tomorrow.
We will be featuring Melee/P:M Singles ($10) & Doubles($5 per person), & If people with Japanese 3DSs want a side event for Smash4 Im willing to run that aswell.
Share this with your friends and try to come out. The Store really needs the Smash Community's help!
Venue Starts @12, Melee 2v2s Starts at 2Pm, PM i was aiming for 5pm to start, Events should finish by 8-9, Venue Closes at 2am if you want to chill late after the tournaments for friendlies and such.
Smash Venue: $10, Portal All-Access Venue: $15 [Ability to use back room to play other games on his multiple Xbox Ones, PS4/3s, Xbox 360s, WiiU, Gaming PCs, ect.]
This venue is going to be incredible once Smash4 hits the WiiU and we feature Melee/P:M/Smash4, but we really need the support of our community to get there. Thanks for Reading & Supporting Us so far.
- Let's Get Some Hype.
