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 25 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 6, its the Lucina/Jigglypuff/Cloud challenge. The rules are super simple. All you have to do is make top 4 in TGC 6's 1vs1 event using ONLY Lucina or ONLY Jigglypuff or ONLY Cloud or a combination of the 3 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!

Melee is held at TGC too but the turnout is very low. Smash 4 is by far the main game.

What's up, Houston!? Xyro here. Did y'all enjoy your New Years? Mine was spent tirelessly (didn't eat, drink or sleep) confirming/preparing/working on the huge TGC announcement that you are about to read.

Are you ready? Cool! Let's begin!

As you may or may not know, The huge success of 3 stocks and TGC 5 has caused articles to pop up on Smashboards, Reddit, Shoryuken and those have spread to Twitter and FB. TGC 5 put Tx on the map and because of this, we now have the interest of even more higher level OOS/OOC players!

So what does this mean? It's means that I have the official confirmation of 6 high level unannounced OOS players that will attend TGC 6 (Feb 6th 2016). Wanna know who these players are? I bet you do. Yeah, so um, it's not gonna be that easy. I'm gonna FORCE you to UNLOCK the player announcements or TIME ME OUT to get the announcements. It's a game that YOU have control over.


Rules
Invite players to the official TGC 6 Facebook page to unlock player announcements or run the timer and the player announcements will unlock naturally. Your move.


1. TGC 6 launch: Unlocked Hyuga! The best North American ToonLink is coming to TGC 6! COMPLETE!!!!! SEE POST #3

2. TGC 6 player announcement 1 & 2: 500 invites or 1/4/2016. COMPLETE! CLICK THE TWO SPOILERS BELOW!!!

Well that was fast 0_o

In less than 5 hours yesterday, the TGC 6 invite game was defeated (this is good) and it thoroughly surpassed my expectations. The 800 and 1.1k invite goals were both met so i guess that means i gotta keep my promise and unlocked some more players


So lets gooooooo!




2. TGC 6 player announcement 3 & 4: 800 invites or 1/11/2016. COMPLETE! CLICK THE TWO SPOILERS BELOW!



Unlocked MVD! Florida's best player, top 4 best Diddy Kong player and best Duck Hunt in the USA is coming to TGC 6!

and dont forget.....



Unlocked Dabuz! The best Rosalina in the galaxy makes her return to TGC 6!






3. TGC 6 player announcement 5: 1100 invites or 1/18/2016. COMPLETE!!!!!!

Even though the 1.1k unlock requirment has been met, I dont wanna just throw out the unlock THIS early because it would spoil the wonder :( So ill save it for tomorrow (1/6/2016) around 3pm.

**MINOR TGC 6 UPDATES/REMINDERS**

TGC 6 is less than a month away! Please read the following updates :)

1. TGC 6 venue tour has been uploaded. Click HERE or check the first post for video.
NOTE: The room as you see it in the video will be totally different come game day. The room will only have about 31-35 tables (2 set-up can fit on each table) and about 300 chairs.

2. Just like the previous TGC back in December, TGC 6 will feature "Curbside Sliderz" aka the food truck in case you don't wanna travel for food. The full menu can be found HERE or on the first post of this thread.

3. This event is looking like it will hit the 250-300 mark in terms of entrants for 1vs1 (might hit 80 for 2vs2 teams). It is imperative that FULL SET-UPS (WiiU/tv/smash 4) are brought by as many people as possible. If you bring a full set-up i will not make you pay venue/ill refund you if you paid online. I need 40+ set-ups in order to end this event on time. If you guys/girls help me out, i will help you out.

4. Houston's stream team Smash United will be recording (with commentary) matches at TGC 6. All videos from TGC 6 will be on the official Smash United Youtube channel. If you would like to commentate, hit up the SU crew at TGC 6.

5. There are unconfirmed rumors of Nairo, Tweek, Fatality, Reflex, Void, Zenyou and Scat (best Megaman imo) are interested in TGC 6. If any of these actually happen, ill update you immediately.

6. Though unlikely, if Bayonetta and Corrin are released before TGC 6, they will be legal at the event. This means that the patch that comes with them is also legal. Keep that in mind.

Can you bring an adapter that works for the wii u and pc?
If it can be inserted into the WiiU and function just like an official Nintendo GCN adapter, YES it is allowed.

Does anyone know how to stream this on your computer?
There isn't a wired connection at TGC. So no stream will be available. If you want to watch TGC, show up.

**TGC 6 UPDATES**


1. This event is looking like it will hit the 250-300 mark in terms of entrants for Smash 4 1vs1 (might hit 80 for 2vs2 teams). It is imperative that FULL SET-UPS (WiiU/tv/smash 4/adapter) are brought by as many people as possible. If you bring a full set-up I will not make you pay venue/ill refund you if you paid online. I need 40+ set-ups in order to end this event on time. If you guys/girls help me out, i will help you out. This is 10$ off or 10$ returned to you. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Also, after watching Genesis, I know lots of you want to play Zero/Dabuz/Hyuga and more but in order to have time for friendlies, I need full set ups (WiiU/Smash 4/adapter/TV). If we don’t hit the 40+ setup mark, I will not allow friendlies/casuals at TGC. Do your part to help make this event run smoothly and ill allow friendlies for as long as possible.

2. Houston's leading stream team Smash United will be recording (with commentary) matches at TGC 6. All videos from TGC 6 will be on the official Smash United Youtube channel. If you would like to commentate or learn more about Smash United, hit up the SU crew at TGC 6.

3. If you would like to see what the tournament room looks like before its set up for game day, click the link. The room as you see it in the video will be totally different come game day. The room will only have about 31-35 tables (2 set-up can fit on each table) and about 300 chairs.

4. Just like TGC 5 back in December, TGC 6 will feature "Curbside Sliderz" aka the food truck. It will be parked right outside the venue door for you to grab some food in case you don't wanna travel for it. The full menu can be found in the link.

5. Since we have not heard from Nintendo as of yet it is unlikely that the next wave of DLC will be available for TGC 6. However, if Bayonetta and Corrin are released before TGC 6, they will be legal at the event. This means that the patch that comes with them is also legal.​

I would not participate because i'll get bodied by the top players
Offline events are more than just winning and losing.

Attending these events is about being in the same room as other people who share the same interest as you. It's about meeting new people, seeing old friends and playing a game we all want to get better at. For that one moment, your social status, color and background do not matter. We are all, simply, smashers who want to have fun and get better.

It's an experience 2nd to none.

**TGC UPDATE TIME**

1. TGC 6 (Feb 6th) is 12 days away! This is less than 2 weeks!!!!! Time is flying by so fast.

2 I desperately need full setups (Tv/WiiU/Smash 4/Adapter) for TGC 6. I will offer a full refund or waive your venue fee if you bring a full setup. If you bring a partial setup, I'll waive or refund half of your venue fee. Anything will help. Having more setups will guarantee friendlies/casuals/MM and allow us to leave on time or early. PLEASE PLEASE help me out by bringing full setups (WiiU/tv/smash 4/adapter).

3. Along with Zero, Dabuz, Hyuga, MVD, Esam and NickRiddle, I can confirm that a NEW PLAYER HAS BEEN UNLOCKED! Vinnie (2nd best sheik on the EC) will be attending TGC 6 on Feb 6th.

4. Smash United will be at TGC 6 recording all the best matches the event has to offer. The vids will be up on their official SU channel.

5. If you have questions, please message me. I will always respond. If you need more info about TGC 6, please go here: smashboards.com/threads/feb-6-2016-tgc-6-1000-bonus-hyuga-esam-nickriddle-mvd-zero-dabuz-confirmed-houston-tx.425871/

are we allowed after a match to change our character?
You are not character locked but do learn how counterpicking works in between matches.
