Holy F where do i begin?
TGC 5 was the largest Smash 4 tournament in TX/Houston/entire Southwest. We hit 240 entrants for 1vs1 and 80 teams for 2vs2.
The Texas community seriously pulled through for each other this weekend. You guys brought 44 setups, housed people beyond the legal limit, gave rides to people at all hours of the night and fought through Ebola+SARS+Flu to help make sure TGC ran as smooth as possible. Some Texans drove 6+ hours for this event. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
MEGA shoutouts to Nike, Krebs, Jebus, This Guy, That Guy, RT, GrimTurtle, Dskro, Morphiziz and all the other helpers/pool leaders that took the time to help keep setups free of friendlies and help me with anything i needed. The shoutouts dont stop there! Houston's official stream team, Remo, Krebs and Dan from Smash United, busted out a hot-spot to stream TGC and they also recorded some high quality videos and commentary for you guys. The videos will be up in the next 24 hours on the official Smash United Youtube Channel so PLEASE check them out. Be sure to watch Ryo vs ALSM and MegaFox vs Dabuz....TASTY!
Last but def not least. I wanna thank West Coast (Void, Zenyou, SM, Z, Vash, S2H), Midest (MJG), Atlatic South (Curlz, Ryo, Sol) and the East Coast (Dabuz) for coming out to TGC 5. This event was pretty much a mini national because of you guys and i know my players are very thankful for the experience. Yall are always welcome back to Houston.
On a side note, everyone at TGC pretty much cleaned out the food truck of its supplies. They were extremely pleased with this and will be back. Thank you for supporting their business.
EDIT: Truly, one last thing. If this event did not prove that 3 stocks and more stages make this game more enjoyable than 2 stock and few stages....i don't know what will. Furthermore, 240 1vs1 players and 80 teams all left the venue before 1am (the scheduled ending time). I am not saying 3 stocks is better (even though it is) but i AM saying is that all TOs should try it out.
