The official rules for Smash 4 can be found here. There have been massive changes to rule-set so please click the link and read them. Remember, all game rules are subject to change at any time so keep checking back. You are responsible for knowing all the rules.




TGC has a strict policy of ZERO friendlies and ZERO money matches once the tournament starts unless we have 20 or more full setups. A full setup is a WiiU/TV/Smash 4. All Smash 4 players who bring a full set-up THAT I USE will be given a FULL refund on their venue fee. 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 so please help me out lol.



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 free or super cheap 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 or mega cheap. It never hurts to ask.






The Character Challenge! Every TGC i create a character challenge to help encourage new character usage as well as to help others gain valuable match-up knowledge vs the characters in the challenge. At TGC 5, its the WiiFit/Palutena/Link challenge. The rules are super simple. All you have to do is make top 4 in TGC 5's 1vs1 event using ONLY WiiFit or ONLY Palutena or ONLY Link 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. Good Luck!

This oughta be interesting for those who have never played Wii Fit, Palutena or Link. It seems very likely that Link will be the most popular choice for the challenge though.

If this is not fixed by TGC 5, I may have to review Diddy's legality.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hQlcYmSAb2w&feature=youtu.be
Stay tuned


edit: 10/9/2015: A new patch (1.1.2) was released and it fixed the Diddy issue. Everything is good to go on that front. Please make sure your wiiu is updated to the most recent patch by the time TGC is here.

If everything goes well, ill have a pretty big announcement on Oct 19th!

Hint: @UltimateRazer (GrimTurtle) Snake has a history of losing to this odd character (played by OOS players) in Brawl. Two separate players did him dirty with this character. The crowd, including Houston were not on Razer's side for the sheer fact that if he lost it would be a HUGE upset. What character defeated Snake? Think Apex and WHOBO.

edit: The 1st new gen to guess correctly will get 1vs1/2vs2 for free at TGC 5. If an old gen gets it correct, you get nothing.

I was hoping to keep this under everyone's hat, but now with the uncertainty of the DFW players, I have no choice. I am making an appearance at this event, and I need some housing and transportation around the Houston area. I will be taking the Megabus from Dallas to the Houston area.

Keep in mind that I am only attending as a guest of Xyro, but I may enter in a non-smash event depending on the competition.

I.. Am interested in going to this. I live in the DFW area, and feel like this could be a great opportunity to start my Smash career and get a full glimpse of the tournament experience.

Anyone and everyone is welcome. TGC usually brings the best players from all around TX to one place. It's a great way to lol up quickly.

Would you mind linking me to these weeklys/ inform me about them? I'm afraid I only know of Tourney Locator, but knowing of more would be nice.. (I'm very bad at trying to find these things.)

I used to run the Fort Worth Classic, but the only venues that hosts Smash tournaments at any regularity is at FX Game Exchange in Plano and at Sci-Fi Factory in Lake Worth.

The former holds weeklys three or more times a week (one for each Smash game), and Sci-Fi Factory hosts theirs at twice a month (I want to say every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month).

Before I formally retired, I hosted my events at a rate of one a year, but I announce it three months in advance, so that there would be no conflict in the dates.

Hello everyone! Xyro here with a few pretty damn exciting TGC 5 updates that I've been holding on to for a while now. This is something you REALLY don't wanna miss because it is likely that you won't be able to experience this here in Tx again.

1. I am proud to announce that Ryo (Florida), the best Ike in North America, has purchased his plane ticket and will be attending TGC 5. Ryo is known for being not only the best Ike in smash 4 but he was also the best Ike in Brawl. In the Brawl days, he decimated GrimTurtle every time they met. More recently, At MLG 2015 he took down Karna, The Wall and a few other Texan players. On December 5th will Houston be able stop the return of hurricane Ike? You can follow the one and only Ryo on Twitter here: https://mobile.twitter.com/MVG_Ryo

edit: i know a lot of you are thinking "Ike? Ike is TRASH! What a WASTE!!" I invite you sit down with Ryo (super nice guy btw) and have a tasty match or two with him. I guarantee you that your opinion will take a drastic turn once he lands a fully charged usmash on your face because he tricked you into doing a panic ledge roll or panic airdodge. The man seriously makes players feel FEAR. It hurts so good.

2. This awesome surprise wasn't planned at all but im SOOO glad to be hit with it! I now have conformation from the man himself that 2Scoops Zenyou (California) is going to TGC 5 on December 5th! Zenyou is most definitely in the top 2 best Mario players in smash 4. Some say he's better than Ally! This will be Zenyou's first adventure to Houston so please let's make it a weekend he won't forget for a long time. You can follow the Mario master on Twitter here: https://mobile.twitter.com/Steroidism

edit:. I know we have a decent amount of Mario players here in Houston so please take notes while watching ZenYou play. Not only is he a damn good player, the dude is chill as fukc so don't be afraid to ask for friendlies. Even if you lose, do not give up. Remember, play to learn, not to win. Winning will come naturally.

3. I have one more OOS (out of state) player i am working on to get down here for TGC 5 but i don't wanna promise anything yet. Just know that Xyro aka papa lesbian aka the ancient gen aka the one true TO of Texas will always do his best to keep Houston THE place to play smash 4.

4. There is a strong rumor going around that new DLC characters and stages will be around by the time TGC 5 happens. If new DLC characters are released before TGC 5, they will be legal for TGC 5 regardless of how early/late they are on sale. Please keep an eye out for TGC rule changes (mainly for the addition of DLC stages if they are decent) and make sure your WiiU/smash 4 has been updated with the latest patch. The link for the rules can be found on the first post of this thread.

5. As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, you can hit me up on Smashboards (Xyro77), FaceBook (Allan Xyro Sims) or Twitter ( Xyro77 Xyro77 ). I cant want to see how Tx's best players will do vs Cali (Zenyou) and Florida (Ryo)! See yall at TGC 5 on December 5th!!!!
