August 2015 Event and Stream Schedule

We’ve got a great month lined up ahead of us with CT! We’ll be streaming two large events, and attending many others for you to meet us at!

While not technically part of August, Nyani and I will be heading to Norcal once again starting this upcoming Sunday, and while we won’t be streaming any events there, we’ll certainly hitting up some tournaments in the area such as The Foundry.

On August 7th through the 9th we’ll be attending Super Smash Con as attendees, and looking forward to meeting up with a bunch of our fans and having a fun weekend full of Smash! We might also be involved with some panels at the convention, so more news on that to come.

On August 15th and 16th we’ll be heading up north to The Summit in Canada! At this two day Canada National event, we’ll be providing two separate streams, one for Melee, and one for Project M! This event will have some of the best talent Canada has to offer, all wrapped together in an amazing event. For more details check out their website at http://www.smashsummit.ca/.

On August 21st through the 23rd, I’ll be heading to the Pokemon World Championships in Massachusetts. While there is no official content planned yet for this event to come from CT, players have expressed interest in setting up side events and/or exhibitions that they want to have me stream and record, so I might set up such a station for this to happen for both VGC and TCG.

And finally on August 29th and 30th (my birthday!), we’ll be heading to Show Me Your Moves  16, the latest installment of the longest running tournament series in Smash! At this event will be bringing you stream content for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Smash 64, and Project M, split between two streams as well like The Summit. For more information on SMYM in Illinois, check out their event page at out https://www.facebook.com/events/844264659014578/.

Two events to travel to, two weekend long events to stream, two full stream setups at each event, and two Project M event streams! Time to get too hyped for CT in August!

The First #CTchat on Twitter! Come discuss streaming with fellow Smashers

ctchat

We’re going to try something new today that I’ve yet to see happen in Smash, and perhaps we can make a trend of it – Twitter chats! Essentially we all plan to meet up together on Twitter at a certain time and discuss a common topic with each other under a specific hashtag. I’m going to hold one today and see how it goes! It may be a little rough, but we’ll learn from it to make future ones better and more engaging for everyone. Throughout the chat I’ll also post 5 questions in total to help spark the conversation. Here are the details for the chat today:

Topic: General Streaming Questions
Date/Time: May 4th, 4pm ET
Hashtag: #CTchat

Read on for details and tips in how to participate in a Twitter chat! Continue reading “The First #CTchat on Twitter! Come discuss streaming with fellow Smashers” »

Evo Plans to Have All Customs Unlocked on Every System [Update]

It seems that the standard voted customs sets (while still a great project), won’t be needed for Evo! According to Mr. Wizard today, he stated that the current plan is to unlock all of the customs before Evo, so that all players can create their custom character before a set starts.

[Update] It was just clarified that this may not be the case. We’re trying to figure out exactly what will happen, and will report the final word to you when available.

[Update 2] Our apologies for the confusion. Mr. Wizard has clarified that players will only be able to select from the 10 default sets voted on by the community that will be loaded onto every system.

How Do We Make Customs Work?

The verdict is in everyone, a large majority of the Smash 4 community wants to see customs enabled, and Mr. Wizard (Head organizer of Evo) said tonight that customs will be on for Smash 4 at Evo 2015. Now here is the kicker – how do we make it work? I would like to take the time to present our problems, review our options, and create a plan that will work for our scene.
