Hey guys :)

I don't think I'll have the money to buy a Wii U solely to play Smash 4, so I'll be sure to meet up with you guys to play!

sneaky do you play poker, and/or P:M? We usually have weekly poker/P:M nights at my place each Friday. I'd play some Brawl too if you wanted. I'm pretty far north of you (Waukegan) but I'm pretty sure you could hitch a ride from someone, especially if you're willing to take a train to the city. Or I could pick you up from the train station if you took a train from Elmhurst to Chicago to Waukegan.

Those are both things that I enjoy, although I do one of those things much better than the other lmao.

I can't say for certain if my work would let me be free on Friday, I have to babysit some people from Japan. But I would totally be down to hang and play poker/PM.

I have a tournament in the works, Hunger. It'll be Brawl/Melee/P:M, but I think I'm gonna make Brawl the main event because we haven't had one of those in over a year now probably

Alright well since this thread and Smashboards has been dead forever, I'm just updating with stuff thats going on

Scythe/Kirk are hosting a tournament this Saturday at CoD, P:M and Melee. There's no SWF thread for it, but the Facebook event is here. The weekend after, the 28th, EXP Gaming is hosting a tournament with Brawl/Melee/64/P:M in Oak Park, link to that is here.

Also people should post here more

We should just make this the P:M PR and have a small Brawl section at this point. I don't think the Brawl PR will ever be updated

I disagree, there are a lot of Brawl players now. It's just that a lot of them are new. JJRockets also hosted a tournament a few weeks ago and will host another one soon. Sago and I as well as his entire "posse" (his brother, SbF, etc) went.

I know most of the people on the Brawl PR panel don't play Brawl anymore, but the scene has witnessed something of a rebirth in these past few months and I think a new PR could really motivate them. If you guys aren't interested in maintaining it anymore (which I wouldn't blame you for) then let me have it and I'll get it up and running again.

edit: Welcome back Bo :B You should get Freddie to come back too.

You just want to be 1st place for once in your life. :awesome:

No but really, I agree - PRs are fun and give respect to the new players, and the top 10 would really be up for grabs at this point. Do all the brawlers know about this thread?

My grueling journey has finally come to an end. I can at last take my rightful place basking in the eternal sun as a champion--nay, a legend.

"Welcome back Bo :B You should get Freddie to come back too."

Thanks :D That's not gonna happen though xD. Or at least, it's highly unlikely. He's in Wisconsin now.

I see the scene isn't as dead as I thought. Unfortunately, looks like most of the events are still way up north. I would like to try to make it to the Oak Park monthlies.

Does Akashi still show up to these events? I saw him on the Metra like 2 months ago on my way to class actually (crazy coincidence.) I know he's even more further south than I am. If he can still make it using the train, I probably can too.
