3: Trela+Vinnie - I wish we had gotten to play!!
4: MegaFox+Espy - fastest team alive! too fast!
7: Tetsua+Glitchbirg - <3 ....
7: Jnig+BrawlMan - fun doubles match! I'm so scared of facing sonics!

Xyro: Your tournaments are always the most fun for me, I get to meet the best people and everyone is so friendly. Having a broken air conditioning through out the whole thing only served to strengthen the bond of the smash community! We aren't here to be comfortable, we're hearing to play video games and find out who the best is!

@@ to anyone I missed, I promise I had fun talking to you and I hope we all see each other again soon.

I need to apologize to Mango and Hax, Flow and Soft, and Mojo and Jake for how teams finals was handled during WHOBO MLG tonight.


I am sorry that the event ran past the predicted and/or scheduled ending time. I'm also sorry for the way you had to be paid out in teams. I felt like It was the only realistic option that was available in the current situation. I hope what happened has not negatively impacted your opinion of me or the Texas smash community.


I take full responsibility of what happened and if there is any additional feedback from this experience please let me know because I have learned a great deal from this experience.

Just got home. Fun games everyone. Thank you for letting me commentate, Chibo. I had a blast catching up with everyone.

Maaaaaybe a few restrictions on number of events players are allowed to enter for next time, Xyro. This weekend was just a bit... messy. :applejack:

This was a fun tourny. Strange seeding at points, but I suppose there's only so much that can be done.

Sorry I couldn't stay for Sunday. Wasn't feeling good Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Had a lot of fun that weekend. Did better then expected with first week Falco, guess that's the power of a real top tier. Shout outs.

Xyro - Speaking as a TO, I am not surprised things ran the way they did. You guys always run so many events and try to be so inclusive, which is part of WHOBO's charm, but it also causes bracket hang ups like no other. I don't agree with how brackets were run and I don't agree with the 3 out of 5 sets, but I don't have the full picture and some of it was just the nature of the beast. You soldiered through it so good **** Xyro. Heard you got some better venues in your future, excited to see what you can do with more resources at your disposal.

Paul - Friendlies all day, I think that was the most games we've played since the last WHOBO. Was fun.
Dom - Your super fun to play dude. Never saw that fox shine shenanigan before.
Tuesday - was cool playing you day one, made my Falco look free.
Admiral - I see why Mike hate's this matchup now, glad we got to play.
Jake - Was fun hanging with you and the Houston crew. Good **** against SOS. Was a hype match. Shame it wasn't on stream.
Mojo - The pride of Texas. I think all those GG grand finals experience is paying huge dividends dude. Keep this up and you'll end up leaving the rest of Texas behind. Next PATS I'll hit you up for that housing and try and come down Friday for the GG tourney.
ARC - AGH I CAN'T GO NEXT WEEKEND I'M SORRY! Also that set against soft was hype. Had never seen those throw mixups.
JF - Wish we had got to play more. I'll make a point of it next time when my Falco isn't so free
GlibbyGlobby - I think this is the most we've ever hung out at a tourney. Was fun. Need to abuse your knowledge of Houston food more.
SleepyK - Thanks for the advice in the friendlies. I like your style. You exposed a lot of fundamental flaws in my Falco play.
Gar - I think this is the first time we've actually hung out at a tourney, it's a shame to see you go, hopefully we can play in the future
Jose - Had that Fellowship of the Ring kind of journey on the ride up. Thanks for pulling through dude. Also you are right. Bair is a pretty good move.
Oracle - Thanks for the advice on Rob. It's hard to stay motivated with PM. So many matchups that just make me want to quit life.
Noc - Good **** in bracket. Kind of knew that was going to happen with my fraud Falco. Should of played something spicier.

San Antonio - We pulled that together at the last minute. Good to see the number of hungry player's in SA has grown. SOON.

Yeah, trying to do 12 events in 2 days is extremely hard. Spending 13-14 hours for 2 days barking out names is rough. Never again. You live and you learn though.


I do wanna thank Ultimate Razer and AirBrushKing (pot bonus, fliers, drink coupons.....etc) for helping out this weekend. Especially Razer. That man could literally replace me one day, TO wise. Never would have thought he was as good as he was.

Allan, I did see a post on FB regarding late players not showing up on time on Sunday. Maybe moving forward we should be use the MLG late entrant rules as long as there isn't any overlap of the players participating in different events.
  • Players late to their station within 5 minutes of their match's announcement will forfeit their first game. 10 minutes late will result in a forfeit of the best of 3 game match or the second game of the best of 5/7/11 match. 15 minutes late will result in a forfeit of the best of 5/7/11 match. If both teams forfeit the match, the higher seeded player/team will win the match.

Now that Whobo MLG is over I would like to give a huge shoutout to everyone that came and supported this event and MLG for this opportunity. I had a blast this weekend catching up with everyone and enjoyed meeting all the new people. I want to thank Chibo/Clash Tournaments for streaming this event and everyone that brought setups and helped setup the venue. I appreciate Zuma management for letting us have the venue after closing hours.


I want to give a special shoutout to Arron from Nintendo for giving out free nintendo gifts to the entire venue. I will be talking with Nintendo about future sponsorship for the TGC series.


For those who missed the announcement the new championship series is called Texas Gaming Championships (TGC). This new series will replace HOBO/TYS (FGC Games) and will be doing these events 1 month and a half apart from each other leading up to the national event that will replace WHOBO. For more information about TGC visit www.TGCseries.com and like us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TexasGamingChampionships


Whobo MLG had a total of 200 people in attendance and we are continuing to grow every year. We have outgrown Zuma so next year the new yearly series will be at a hotel and will announce the name of the new yearly series at a later time. It was good seeing Mango/HAX and all the out of towners that had a great time and look forward to seeing you all at our next event. All Whobo players was paid in full and I will post the group pictures along with the champion images soon so stay tuned!

I see that this was a MLG qualifier
and melee teams didn't finish and melee singles top 8 didn't start until 11pm Sunday, less than half of which was streamed
and yet they finished brawl singles with extra-long sets, teams, various low-tier tournaments, PM singles and teams
......
who let those things happen?

There was a pretty clear lack of planning. Saving Melee for last because it's 'hype' is well and good if, you know, it finishes. TO's need to get used to the larger event numbers we're seeing and respond appropriately. Like, maybe, not having 12 events, or not making everything 3/5.

I mean, did we really need Brawl low tier singles and doubles?

Several things.

- Mango is hard
- Why did I not remember I had a pit for Brawl Doubles grand finals? I was basically on the ledge anyway LOL.
- congrats to zero
- change results to CT | TLoc | Denti. Please change results to include my sponsor.
- sorry megafox for saying 3 out of 5 and screwing our shot of winning Mid tier.
- I'm OP in Project M 2 v 2.
- I'm more powerful than 4loko
- Shout outs to most of my Brawl games lasting only 2 min long. Thanks Project Mmmmm.

I mean Brawl low tier has always been a thing in past Whobo events. I understand people who might be upset because it's an MLG qualifier and Brawl side tournaments shouldn't take precedence, but we should also understand that by the end of the day, this is still a Whobo tournament that attracts Brawl players far and wide for being such a fun event. I'm not saying that the scheduling was done right (to be honest, I don't know what I would've done), but there is another side to this and I just wanted to point it out.

Shoutouts to Leaf for housing and talking me into going to this tourny and getting me to start playing Project M.
Kirby - Double Zelda is too fun.
Trygg - I shall train you and you will destroy!
Espy - Dude! Your hair! Last time I saw you, you looked way different.
Trela - Nice Roy in PM. Sucks how it ended for you though.
Xyro - Thanks for hosting this event.
Razer - You did a really good job running this too.
Gnes - I had fun in our set. A lot better than 2 years ago when I'd just be nervous and feel defeated before the match even started.
Axxo - Good to see you again. You're beast at PM.
Dingding - Crazy seeing you again after... 4 or 5 years was it?

Shoutouts to everyone else too. I'm tired and got finals to study for and can't think and stuff yeah. /johns.

Gonna start playing Project M a lot now probably. It's fun. I was just using Sheik cause I'm extremely new to PM, and I know her from Brawl. Probably gonna main Lucario though.

Basically, brawl was never streamed the entire first day so it got stream time the second day. Secondly, melee was saved till last BECAUSE it was the main event. You know, like most tournaments especially majors actually do. Third, everyone sucked and showed up like an hour and a half late day 2. Fourth, from what I heard, they were told they had an hour less than they thought of venue time halfway through the day.

Fourth, from what I heard, they were told they had an hour less than they thought of venue time halfway through the day.
Why should brawl get any significant stream time at a MLG qualifier on any day, let alone 7 or 8 hours? I understand WHOBO's roots as a predominantly brawl tournament, but this was, again, a qualifier for a melee championship event. Hax vs Soft, a Winners Semis match that lots of people wanted to see, was held offstream as a result of best of 5 / best of 7 brawl sets. Brawl mid/low teams finished whereas melee teams didn't.
As someone earlier said, it's all well and good to save the main event for last for "hype" if everything else finishes at a reasonable time. 11pm and later on a Sunday night after a long day of heat exhaustion (see below) and side events is not primetime, or in any way fair to the players who came out to Texas thanks to this somehow being a MLG qualifier with accompanying seeding points.

On that note, I'm pretty sure people showed up late day 2 because nobody wanted to spend extra time in a venue with no AC and no abundance of setups during 105 degree heat - and from what I heard from players who attended this tournament, players were essentially trapped at the saunavenue by being threatened with DQs if they left. If they thought they didn't have much time left at the venue, why would they respond by still holding the side events and pushing melee later?

Fair points about melee not finishing since this was an MLG tourney.

But I would like to say, as someone who didn't go and was curious about what was going on, this tourney was boring as ****.

I'm cool with Melee being the headliner, but all anybody talked about when I tuned in was Melee. If you're going have a large tourney with multiple events, they deserve equal air time. I missed Sunday with Brawl because of hoops, but **** me was Saturday boring.

If tourneys going forward until Smash 4 are all MLG Melee and "**** everything else", enjoy yourselves. If you want a real fan base and growth you have to stop being selfish pricks. My opinion may not mean much, but I guarantee the casual fighter fans like me who are fine leaving Smash behind for a "real" fighter are larger in number than the **** riders who complain.


I hope someone in charge of running these things at least thinks about it. Don't sell out your event's enjoyment for the sake of pleasing the biggest names. And don't misinterpret me, I thought Melee Finals was great. But I really do believe that if this event wasn't an MLG event people would have had more fun.
