Carrollfest 5 (103 Singles Entrants) – 8/16/2014, Pittsburgh, PA

An incredible venue with an amazing turnout definitely puts Carrollfest 5, at one of the best one-day tournaments of the summer. Almost doubling the attendance from the previous installment, Pittsburgh ran yet another 100+ entrant event smoothly and efficiently. PGH Carroll, the host, had enough time to run Melee doubles, singles, an amateur bracket, AND set aside enough time for TWO separate crew battles. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Cloud 9’s very own Mango won both the pro bracket and doubles with fairly minimal back-breaking effort with Juggleguy. After an incredible upset in round 2 of Melee singles, KJH took the win over VaNz. I’m sure you can tell that didn’t sit well with him as VaNz made a losers run through Nakamaru, Moose, Juggleguy, Vist, KJH, and Duck to secure a top 2 position. As for the crew battles, PGH Carroll designated time before Melee pools for “The PGH Mean Foxes,” consisting of himself, Taki, S1 the God, and Machiavelli vs. “Team Ben,” coming strong with Wife, Husband, Silence, and Oro. Despite a valiant effort “Team Ben” was able to clutch out the victory and win the crew battle. Happening later in the day, and likely the highlight of the tournament for most was the PGH vs. Michigan crew battle. Fighting for bragging rights on their own turf were Taki, Green Ranger, TheLake, PGH Carroll, and Nakamaru. Michigan brought many good players such as KZhu, KJH, Moose, Beach, and Duck. This crew battle had everyone on the edge of their seat, and I’m sure it will put you there too, so check it out here.

This week, Nebulous featured another array of high quality players such as Soft, Minty, Knut, and Kaeon, as well as our Nebulous veterans Hax, The Moon, DJ Nintendo, Ryobeat, Smuckers, and Niko. Minty, the Samus main from LI, went on a tear threw the bracket defeating Niko, Ryobeat, and even the fellow LI Samus Knut to take an impressive 5th place. DJ Nintendo, who placed a disappointing 9th place at the last event, stepped up his game for this event, defeating players such as Kaeon, Minty, Smuckers, Soft, and even The Moon, who has been placing 2nd place consistently in the past weeks. However, Hax reigned supremed and demonstrated to New York that we still have a lot of work to do.

Upstate New york’s biggest tournament of all time. Thanks to Syracuse’s central location many subregions, like Rochester, Buffalo, and even Albany were present.The growth in all these regions combined to form an excellent turnout for both Melee and PM with 70+ unique entrants.
