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:
=SMASH 4=
ZeRo gets to EVO
ZeRo automatically gets to the finals
ZeRo nails Mr.R
ZeRo is Numbah wane
=MELEE=
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.
