1. Background Information

Bryan Puccia, known to most of us smashers as Bry or Kanto, has been the spark of our Syracuse smash community since August 2009, when he announced his first tournament here on the boards. Since then, he has succeeded in bringing Syracuse, Rochester, Albany, and Buffalo (+ others) into one unified community that has improved both in skill and bond by amounts too great to describe in words. His last tournament, Syracuse Smash 2, brought in top tier competition from locations as varied as Canada, Massachusetts, and New Jersey for both Brawl and Melee. Despite extreme difficulties including a power outage at the original venue, he persevered and managed to create a spectacular event at the last second that proved to send everyone home very happy and satisfied with their weekend's tournament experience.

To the great dismay of everyone who had the honor of knowing him, on Tuesday, May 25th, Bry suffered a heart attack while swimming at the beach, and is no longer with us. A great many of the members of the Upstate NY Smash community traveled to Syracuse to pay their respects, and even more members of this website posted their condolences, he will surely be missed. by many. At the wake, it touched all of us just how many people knew about us and just how important our community and smash as a whole was in Bry's life, it was extremely touching to hear.


Bryan had been in the process of organizing a third tournament prior to his departure. At the wake, we were greeted by a representative of the venue that he had chosen, and were told that he would cover the charge of the venue for the weekend that Bry had reserved it for. As such, we have decided to hold this tournament to honor Bryan's memory, and a portion of the pot will be donated to his family as a token of our appreciation for the man they brought to us. I think this quote sums up Bry's views on smash in a nutshell:


i think the harder i try the harder it gets for me to win. just play the game and have fun. thats what all of this is about, not the PR, not money, not fame ( yea right) . its about making friends and chillin with each other playing smash or any game for that matter.

wheres the love people?:chuckle::chuckle::chuckle:

So in his memory, let there be smash. =D

4. Schedule.

Bryan always did melee first so we will continue this tradition.

11:00 AM - Registration for Melee Singles and doubles
12:30 PM - Registration Ends For Melee Singles and doubles/ Brackets will be made at this time.
1:00 PM - Melee Doubles Will Start.
2:00 PM - Melee Doubles finish up and Melee Singles Begin:
4:00 PM - Melee Singles Finish up And Lunch/Dinner Break Commences/ Brawl Registration starts/
4:45 PM - Brawl Registration comes to an end/ Brawl Bracket wil be made at this time.
(Please note we will be accepted brawl registration at the same time as melee so you really have from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM to register for brawl)
5:00 PM - Brawl Doubles Begin.
6:30 PM - Brawl Doubles Finish/ Brawl Singles begin.
End - Brawl Singles Finish.

This is just a draft things are not expect to go exactly like this obviously.

We do have the venue till midnight or a little later. So if we finish in a reasonable time and people want a side event i will have no problem hosting 1.



I want everyone to have a good time and do friendlies, However we cannot let that get in the way of the tournament.

Tournament matches have priority over everything (That means it has priority over a money match so do not use this as an excuse to continue playing) if your seen taking up a tv that needs to be used for tournament you will be given a warning.

3 warnings- You lost your first match in your next tournament set
4 warnings- You get Dq'd from set and will be sent to losers or out of the tournament.

If my schedule for the summer holds, I'm going.

I'm very excited about this, see below.

Hype! Barring some sort of bizarre happenstance - say, nuclear explosion, velociraptor attack, sudden onset paralysis, or something of the like - I'll be there 100%.

Massive hype of the results not meaning anything because my training hasn't come to kick reason to the curb and drill through.

-Just kidding you all probably went SS3 from practice at MLG

EDIT:
Lol, SS3. At SS3.

Oh yeah, BRING TV'S PEOPLE! I know it's a pain but without tv's then everything takes forever and there's no friendlies.

I think I'm gonna bring a second tv as a friendly setup (the infamous pink line lcd lol) so you ****ers better step up and bring everything you can :p

Allied, you better be here. :D

Edit: The Thread has been updated a good amount. Thanks goes to sharky for making most of the stuff that you currently see up there with minor edits and tweaks by frannie and myself.

You'll have to tie me down with a chain, tape my mouth, lock me in a safe with a code, and put me behind an electric chain fence to keep me from going to this. There's no way my parents can say no. No excuses. I'd almost rather move out of the house than not make this tourney.

<3 Cura and rest of smash community.

And rest in peace, Kanto.

P.S.: I'll be entering as bcb, and always will be. :p

I'm looking for a steady team mate for this and any future events. I'll play D3 or falco you choose. I only prefer that this person has regular access to wifi so we can practice online.

Oh, yeah. Andyisjudo changed his tag to L-Don recently, so he'll probably be going as that. If I come, he'll most likely come, and we'll probably be teaming....

We gotta get training for this.

I'm bringing my sd card if I go, which will have smashstack, so no wiis needed to hack.

And L-Don might bring a brawl disk so melee players that bring a wii can have it used for brawl.
---
Edit: You guys can request what you want on the sd card.

Will have: Tags in replays, infinate replays.
Debatable and important: Random tripping removed, red, blue, and green textures for Sonic, Lucario, and Pokemon Trainer.
Debatable and lulzy: Non-limited camera, textures on banned stages, custom music on banned stages, custom victory themes, custom menu theme, other non-stage custom music, other?

Those are basically all OK in our community from my experience. We're not used to using the lucario ones, but it'd be great if you did grab em, because they do help a lot. Since I'm one of the people who gets really bugged out by colors in team matches in particular, it's always nice to have.

-Course, I'm not coming, just chipping my 2 cents.

Sheth, you better ****ing come. Who's going to be absurdly loud if you aren't there?!

Also, bcb all those sound great except the tripping. Tripping has to stay on simply because it's far too difficult to have tripping off on every tournament setup. And it's unfair to only have tripping on certain setups.

edit: dang almost forgot to respond to this!

Definitely coming, extremely excited.

Alt, you being TO better not get in the way of our teaming. Also DON'T USE MK!!! Yo 'Chu is better anywayz.
I'd never let TO'ing get in the way of teaming with you man :D Although I'm afraid I'm gonna be holding you back again, I really haven't been practicing smash at all. MK was just to take a break from pika, I'm definitely over that now ;)
