So what did you guys think of it this year?

I only watched Sm4sh and Smash melee, but I was hyped over it. Especially it being my first tournament I've watched on stream.

I laughed as Zero tackled Mr.R in a 3-0 as diddy kong in grand finals.
I cried, not seeing armada play peach, Mang0 SD twice in one match, and Hungry box get destroyed in grand finals.
I cheered my heart out watching all these players I have been following the past 5 months play their best (well, my dad was sleeping one room over, but I did the best I could).
My jaw dropped seeing obadongo perform that one frame waft punish on Mr.R in quarterfinals.
Overall a great time and made my weekend worth it. :)

also melee finals had over 200,000 viewers tune in to watch, that's a lot for a game that's 14 years and and played on a CRT.

congrats armada for being number 1 of the gods

Yeah same here. I've been getting into watching competitive Melee a bit and it was a lot of fun seeing a live event like that for the first time. Even though I prefer to play Smash 4 over Melee, as a spectator it's a bunch more fun to see top level Melee play. Moments like Chu's comeback as the solo Ice Climber (SOPO as they called it) and hungrybox's rests are so hype. I was rooting for hbox all the way through, but hey I'll settle for him getting second. It was definitely a fun event.

Yep, CRT televisions, as opposed to the flat-screen TVs you see today. The reason people use CRT televisions for these events is because the video signal is delayed when a GameCube is hooked up to a flat-screen TV, whereas CRTs receive the signal almost instantly.

Here's my summarization of EVO:
ZeRo gets to EVO
ZeRo automatically gets to the finals
ZeRo nails Mr.R
ZeRo is Numbah wane
Mang0 fails America
Mang0 fails America again
Armada goes hardcore
I'm telling you to press 1 now
Press 1 for Hungry box
Armada is champ

In short, it was to hype for me and I also lost a bet with a friend. He said if mang0 SD more than once in a match I have to eat 10 grilled cough drops.

It was awful.
