The accumulated filth of all their ****ty DI and rusty tech skill will foam up about their waists, and all the Falcos and Foxes will look up and shout "Save us!"... and Jason will look down and whisper "No."

ive won so many giant brawl tourneys i could honestly care less, i just wanted to beat japan and i beat nietono/rain/otori so i dont rly have goals left, it's not fun enough. I honestly am not even sure if I'll enter brawl at apex and if I do, I certainly don't think I'll be in peak form since the motivation for me is basically dead.

This was such a great tournament, and I didn't even attend lol. The stream was fantastic.

Thanks to GimR and everyone else who helped make the stream so great, including the awesome commentators (the Prince Abu singing was hilarious). Props to Kish Prime, Dope and Wife for showing that old school's still got it. : p Congrats to M2K for winning, and thanks to Juggleguy + the TO staff for making everything work out so well.

Fun tournament. Thanks for hosting JG. Full shoutouts when I get home.

One thing. I see Peach next to my name in melee singles. I dropped out because I felt sick/tired. Didn't play a single bracket match :(

Hey Smashers! I haven't posted in a very long time, but per Robin's request I'd like to briefly do so.

This tournament was not only extremely enjoyable, it was somewhat emotional for me as well. It was my first national in a while, I drove through the night there and back, and watching the documentary the next day - all together it mixed me up inside, for sure.

This is both obvious and obligatory, but I'd like to just the same thank JuggleGuy and Gimr/VGBootcamp. Between the two of you, I think you created something this past weekend that approached MLG in some ways, and surpassed it on other ways. I would like to not only thank you for your hard work, but invite each of you to reach out to old Wifey if there's ever anything I can do to help further your efforts. I still believe in the smash scene.

I'm not gonna do a long list of shoutouts, but a few very briefly:
Pitt guys - It was great getting to hang out and play with all of you. Taki thanks for driving 8 hours, especially. Hope to see you all soon.
Insanecarzyguy - You are the best teams player I have ever seen in Melee, relative to your individual skill. Good on you.
Chad - For being a terrific pool captain and loaning me a controller, you improved my tournament experience more than any other individual. Thank you.
Toph - Thank you for making me look good on the mic. I think that was the single easiest time I ever had commentating matches.

Yeah I've really gotta get back to other stuff so that's it. But honestly, every single person who showed up I feel indebted to. It was a great tourny.

See everyone soon,

Wife

Brilliant tournament. Loved it more than Apex

By the way this is Bernal.

Thank you Juggleguy and the staff for an amazingly well run tournament. So much better than apex on that regard. Jugglyguy is the best TO in the country.
Tremor: Great housing. Thank you so much man! You and your family were all so friendly and hospitable. We had to leave super early on sunday to the venue so we didn't get to bye and thank you but I hope you see this because we really are so grateful.
People in my pool: GGs, I played like **** but it was fun!
Kalamazhu guys at Tremor's: You guys are pretty cool. We should've gotten more sober/non-tired friendlies at the venue. Blake you're fox had pretty movement.
Wife: Nice to meet you and play with you.
Everyone else I talked to: GGs
Kage: Nice to talk and hang out with you a bit for the first time. You're a sick player and I know you have all the skill it takes to beat both PPU and Atma next time. Good **** clutching it out several times.
Toronthough homies: It was great travelling with you guys and hanging out at Tremor's. Looking forward to doing it again.

Hey everyone,
This was an amazing tournament experience and I’m really glad I came all the way from Toronto for it! It was really cool to travel to the US and be able to watch the pros in person. I do regret being too shy to approach a lot of people for friendlies but it was still a blast to watch people play.

Shoutouts to Juggleguy & crew and VGBC for the incredibly well-run tournament and live-stream. I was impressed with how smoothly the stream was run so that there were interesting matches to watch at all times. I also thought the venue was a good choice; it was conveniently located, spacious, and had free coffee/tea!


Tr3MoR – Thanks so much for the awesome housing, we really appreciate it! I want to thank your parents for their amazing hospitality. Also your dog is such a cutie!

Hanky Panky – Your peach is awesome and fun to watch! I also think you look like a cross between Armada and Idea which is why you may or may not have noticed me staring at you. GGs in pools.

Darkatma – I never talked to you, but I really enjoyed watching your sheik as a sheik main. Very impressive! Shoutouts to Uganda #Kony2012

Hax$ - Thanks for being nice to me in pools and dropping your combos so I could hit you. J

M2K – Congrats on your win! I’m really happy for you and thanks for the picture!

HIV + - I’m sorry I did not meet your pools expectationsL. GGs in friendlies, you’re the superior STD by far.

Everyone else in my pool: Good games to all. I got a long way to go but I’m definitely aiming to make it out next time. Also shoutouts to SaxophoneOfTime for taking on Hax$ with Pichu lol.

Tom/Hammertime: Thanks for driving and making this bomb *** trip possible. Hope you're not feeling to bad from the driving and the allergies. 17th in teams all dai
Wow, no shoutouts to Syphilis for driving everyone home from the US border. Disrespect.

I'm always gonna be super salty about my pool being loaded with just the fiercest competition, but the whole rest of the tournament was just way too hype and just the most hellafun I've ever had. Roy/Mewtwo PM too strong.

I usually do a full list of shoutouts, but seeing as there are just that many people and I didn't get to play everyone... also I forgot the names of like everyone I money matched this weekend. I just sat down and played and threw money down and it was legit.
----Some Shoutouts
PewPewU - Mad salty you went Mario instead of Marth in PM. Really wanted to see what you'd do to me in that match, but I know you wanted to keep that Melee Marth pristine. Next time when we go game 3, I think I'll stay with Sonic... if you make it that far.
Oro!? - Maaaan, those were some awesome matches. I told you I'd get a game off you. Better look out, all the Sonic nerfs in the world won't stop me next time. But for real man, you're so chill and a blast to be around. Keep it up, I'll be rooting for you.
Strong Bad - Hope you got that Starbucks, man.
Christian (Zoro) - Wish you went Link in PM so I could get a taste of that style you set in Melee. Saw your matches against Moose, man, those were great. I know Florida's a long drive, but hopefully I'll see you next year.
McKillington - Yo, sorry about our pool, dude. We should have said something about two West MI guys in a single pool and got one of us out of that nightmare.
Gravy - The only guy in the pool I couldn't take a game off of. Wow, those Ivy setups Falcon gets are just... wow. I should have just put my controller down whenever you got a grab and got a drink of water. Combos for daaaayyyysss. I wish you made bracket in Melee, but 17th in PM is something to be proud of.
Flan~ - THAT WEST MI SECOND SEED HYPE.
Anther - GET WRECKED BY FLAN~'S SECOND SEED EVEN THOUGH YOU WON. Dude, super legit friendlies, sorry you had to eat the quintuple uair move string from hell. You're such a wacky and dangerous Pikachu, but you made me focus so hard on DI I can't help but feel like I grew a lot after fighting you. I think our games is what finally let me grow enough to beat metroid.
Metroid - If I learned a lot from Anther, I learned even more from you. I was not expecting you to be so fun and chill, and yet you came in with nothing but smiles and the hypest comebacks. Wish we recorded our matches, they were so full of great combos and magnificent SDs.
Oracle - Finally got our friendlies in after waiting for so long after Nerd Rage. Maybe next time we'll money match and we can work on my tourney nerves. I can honestly say I play better in friendlies than in tournament after we talked and played. Hey, maybe next time you'll take a game off me.
Rat - Loved the Roy dittos. You're a super cool guy.
Sax(was wearing Saxophone of Time badge, but other people mentioned Saxophone of Time was someone else?) - So much Mewtwo/Roy shenanigans. Great, great games.
Dude with long braided ponytail who was part of the PM crew whose name escapes me even though we played on JCaesar's setup for like an hour straight because of Melee Top 16 - Hype.
JCaesar - Don't know if any of the Roy/Mewtwo vids are up but you're a super cool guy for setting up the record.
HungryBox and Mew2King - Wish I didn't SD against you guys in teams. Would have been a hype set. This goes the same for The Good Doctor and cheeto.
Lordy - We make good teammates. We did a lot better this time together. 9th place, man. We got those single digits.
Storm (Smalls) - Good job making it to bracket.
Juggleguy - Good job with just about everything, man. Just... good job.

Shoutouts to the quietest tourney crowd I've ever been a part of. Not sure if you guys were respectful or what but it was eerie after being in so many MI tournaments who have no concept of the term 'noise complaint'.

13th in melee singles
13th in pm doubles
9th in pm singles

I'll take it! I was excited for this tournament but it exceeded my expectations 100 times over. This tournament has got to be the best grass roots event I've been to. Not only did I get to see a lot of familiar faces but I had the pleasure of meeting all the wonderful folks from the Midwest and everywhere else. Deciding to come to this was the best decision I have made in a while and well worth the travel. The tournament itself was so well run I can't even believe it; Juggleguy and the rest of the bighouse staff all deserve the utmost praise for their accomplishments this past weekend. Good stuff to everyone involved and I hope to see you all again and hopefully meet anyone I didn't have the chance to at later events. GG's everyone, I don't know when my next major will be but if EVO has melee again I'll definitely see you there.

Shoutouts to my pool. Was 1 stock away from making the PM bracket. This was the hypest tourney I've been to. Thanks to Rob and the TO staff. And to Mew2King for that performance.

All that together with the Smash Brothers documentary... Smash is looking pretty good right now.

Shoutouts:

First and foremost, shoutout to the Big House 3 TO team. You guys ran another flawless tournament! Thank you Juggleguy for having the vision and the tenacity to run these beastly tournaments. You’re one of the most amazing TOs to have ever graced the midwest.

Wife: I’m incredibly sorry about running in front of your game. It was a horrible accident, and I would’ve been just as mad if someone had done it to me. I absolutely love your commentary and everything you’ve contributed to melee, and I’m glad to see you doing well in bracket in 2013.

Hbox: The more I learn about fox vs puff the more I appreciate how amazing you are at playing your character. Keep placing amazing and being the best sport in the elite 4! I am personally a big fan.

Kels: At some point you have to acknowledge that you need to learn character specifics. You have some gaping flaws in your gameplay. Whether you learn how to deal with them with fox, sheik, or falco is your choice, but at some point you have to work on them to become a better national/interregional presence.

Trail: Was really cheering for you against kage, and thought you had it when you were 1 up against him.

M2k: congrats. I hope you pay back hylian his 80 bucks now.

Norcal bros: Love you guys. Scar almost whooped me, SFAT actually did whoop me, Violence is a homie, and it was awesome watching Kevin body and style on people. Also very nostalgic to see Sheridan from across the room with his all sweats attire. Glad toph could commentate on matches and make them more awesome too!

MI Asians: <3 you guys. Duck is still really darn good at smash, despite playing a free character. Coney Island >>other late night breakfasts. Moose is sexy and I would want his babies if I were female(who am I kidding, I just want his babies). Kzhu battlefielded himself on Pokemon Stadium, but at least he got me a point in R1 predictions. Nice meeting you Brian who now lives in pittsburg.

Metroid/Ripple: Thanks for champing the drive out with me! Great teamwork and coordination in driving. We all did fairly decently as well.

Everyone else: Freeeee

My pool:
Shaeden - spank me harder next time. I'm probably even worse from your perspective lol
j00t - nice falcon, you did really well. Too bad I choked super hard in our set.
Gravy - sweet falcon dude. Only playing for a year? That's madness. You have amazing potential, keep it up.
Windrose - ggs. Don't fear yoshis story too much, your falcon is definitely solid, no need to counterpick marth.
metroid - fun as hell games, super close. Let's play again in the future.
roki - make me choke harder next time
PseudoTurtle - it was nice to meet you and play. Awesome consistency with the RLD, i'm too afraid / inconsistent to use it midmatch, and you got me with it several times. Fun matches though!

blinK - ggs, keep working on your play.
tm - GG 9th in your pool. Level up dude

others:

.Dempt - yay you cleared pools R1! stop killing yourself in doubles though
Captain Cleveland - it's up to you to put toledo on the map dude. teach me how to beat falcon
MinorThreat - it was nice hanging out and talking again. Keep up the ganon. I'll talk whenever you want
Coffeemug - nice pictures (i'm assuming the pictures are going to be nice). Anyway it's cool that we have someone doing this.

Extra-special thanks:
Super Lous - teaching M2K how to beat puff at the last minute. You are the one responsible for the return of the king.
PGH Carroll, T-bone, & Hbox for creating the most hilarious smash set I have ever witnessed (VGBC, you need an audience mic)
