Congrats to Ally, as this marksthe first time that a Mario player has won a large majortournament. His victory displays the diversity of Smash 4 and howmany characters can be considered viable. In similar vein,Kamemushi’s performance with MegaMan was also impressive.Hopefully we see more amazing tournaments like this in the future,and hopefully they will be organized better.

Another exciting tournament, andcongratulations to Hungrybox for his first EVO win. Thefinals this year were a repeat matchup of last year, except for thefact that HungryBox failed to reset the bracket and lost during thefirst best-of-five one year ago. A big congrats is also earned byPlup for managing to break past two gods and taking the bronzemedal. This was an excellent conclusion to the biggest Smashtournament in history.
