Hey everybody, my name is Locus, or Mason. I'm a Ryu main from western Canada and I'm really hoping to get the chance to go to Shine 2017. I love Super Smash Bros. so much, and I'd love to be able to bring some happiness and passion to the event. However, since I'm not sponsored by any team and have been under some issues as far as funds go, I'd love to be considered for this compendium. Especially since West coast Canada is basically the opposite side of the continent, I don't think I'd be able to go otherwise.
Thank you so much for considering me, I hope to be able to make it out there and share in this amazing event with you guys. :)
Hey, im 1cePingu, a long time tournament organizer and top eu player. Im an admin for the biggest Brawlhalla Discord (Brawlleague) and an admin for most circuit tournaments. Since I'm administrating and organizing many tournaments, I can't play in many of them, but for those that I do participate in, I place high. Although this would be my first ever LAN event, it is pretty difficult to fully fund myself for an event like this because of where I live and my current financial situation.
You obviously dont have to vote for me but if you do i greatly appreciate you for your support. <3
I feel that I should be nominated and given the opportunity to compete because I have proven to be a player than can shake up any marvel 3 bracket I'm in! Coming off a 3rd place finish at CEO2017 beating notable top players such as ray ray and fchamp in winners on the way. I am opting in because I do not have the funds to make it to this event, however I would love to be given the opportunity to travel and do what I do best... Cause some major upsets! So I would be very grateful if you guys could vote for me! I also rank within the top 8 (currently at 6th) in the curleh circuit. I would love to be able to earn more points and further solidify my spot in the finals! Thank you I promise I won't disappoint!
I got the opportunity to go to Genesis 4 and whilst I did quite well beating Nickriddle and getting 2nd in my pool, I didn't perform to my highest potential and I'd love another opportunity to compete in the US
I'm well known as one of the best Samus players in the world and would not waste another opportunity to show the world what I'm capable of when I'm playing at my best
All donations and shares will be appreciated more than you can know 🙏
As many know I go to all the Brawlhalla lan events that I can to help the devs and hang out with the community. BCX 2016, Final Round, and Combo Breaker were amazing. At Combo Breaker I realized streaming pools for the community would be a great way for them to stay in on the action until top 8 started. I would love to go to Shine to bring this back to them and stream all the amazing things that happen in pools that they don't usually get to see. I want to be that bridge for the community and would love any support to be able to get there. I may not be a top player but I love this community and want to see it grow and thrive.
Hey everyone, my name is Myran. I'm the best Olimar player in the US, and am currently ranked 39th on the PGRv3. Unfortunately last year I was unable to attend Shine, and this year I'd love to make it out if the chance arises. Funds are a bit tight on my end so this is my only chance currently to attend. All help is greatly appreciated!
For those that don't know me, I'm Tandori, a Rivals of Aether veteran and one of the top Maypul players in the game. I'm currently ranked 29th on the Rivals Top 50 rankings and would love the opportunity to travel out to Shine and represent one of the most underrepresented characters in the game.
Due to responsibilities and a poor setup to netplay on, I either don't enter or place very poorly in online tournaments, so the only time I get a chance to Shine is when I travel out to offline events. With a 13th place finish at Genesis 4 and a 7th place finish at CEO Dreamland, I would like the opportunity to prove myself once again at Shine 2017.
Aside from being a competitor, I'm both a part of beta balance test team and a volunteer esports liaison for the Rivals of Aether community. Being at Shine will give me the opportunity to make connections that will help grow and achieve new heights for the competitive RoA scene.
Hello, I am MrLz. Many of you probably know me as a top player in the Brawl mod, Project M. but I am also an up-and-coming Rivals player. In the past year I have been able to take sets off of players in my region such as Fullstream, Ralph, Kisuno, TurqoiseColour, and CakeAssault, and games off of out-of-state top player Kaos. Along with Rivals I have many hours of experience with the platform fighter Melee, in which I am ranked 9th on the official CFL power rankings. Despite my success in both Rivals and Melee, attending tournaments has recently become very difficult due to a medical complication that resulted in an emergency open heart surgery. This obstacle has prevented me from attending several tournaments for the past several months including Smash n' Splash, Bigger Balc, and CEO 2017. Fortunately, I am very likely to attend Shine 2017 this year and would be honored to have it be the first of many to come.
Im the best fucking marvel player in the world. Get me here so i can win for free. Also ill pot monster it up and enter maylay and show yall this goddddlike fox 20xx shyt homie. Also my shoe game and dick game kinda od and i can sing the fast part on that one busta rhymes song without takin a breath
Hi guys! I'm Eric or better known as Ricky in the Smash community. I started playing melee in early 2016 and have had a passion for the game ever since. Last year at Shine, I got 97th and had an amazing time. I now am the TO every week at the HoG Weekly in Wallingford CT, Connecticut's biggest tournament series! I Would love to go to Shine but with need the help with housing/gas/fees and any help would be extremely helpful. Without the help, it will be hard to commit to this event and/or help and compete as I plan. By me being at this event, I will not only compete, but help to volunteer and TO to make everyone else's tournament experience the best I possibly can. Shine was an amazing event last year and I want to do everything I can to make it better and more enjoyable for you guys. I'm Currently 10th on the CT Power Rankings and have been very successful with my Teammate, Thumbs (to team at Shine!) Lastly, I'm not asking for very much money as I can drive myself, but again it would help with fees, gas, or housing and making me be able to attend Shine. Thank you all for the votes and support and I'll do my best. Rep'ing HoG straight from Wallingford! Enjoy the video lol.
Hey guys, I'm a Zetterburn main from the Midwest mostly known for my combo videos, and I was ranked 33rd in the Rivals Rankings. I offer a unique playstyle with a focus on movement, mindgames and precision backed by years of Smash experience. I plan to fund myself to Super Smash Con where I can prove myself locally and if I get the support to go to Shine then I plan to put on a show you'll remember. I also stream at twitch.tv/sino5!
The main reason behind me doing this is to put less strain on my/my family's expenses to get there, because in the past few months I've seen fellow competitors each get picked up by organizations to help with LAN payments while I'm still repping myself at the moment. While I'm currently on the search for a sponsor, seeing this gave me a new hope in getting to Shine which would be awesome because I've been grinding and trying to prove myself in the scene and Shine is a chance to exhibit what I've learned and show I can compete at high levels of play which I have done before, but an opportunity like this could be the push I need to get to the next level. Also this would be my first LAN so simply meeting people I've competed with and just the opportunity to go to one of the few major offline tournaments that Brawlhalla has this year would be an experience to remember.
Hi, my tag is FailWhale and i am a top Etalus/Kragg player in Rivals of Aether. Currently there are going to be 3 big tournaments in August for our Season 2 of RCS. I will be attending low tier city as it is in my home state and would love to attend shine as well to show i can compete. In season one i was constantly considered one of the top Kragg players and finished 9th at Genesis my only offline event. It took me a while but i feel like i have finally found my footing with Etalus and i know that if you help get me to Shine i will to better than ever.
DISCLAIMER: Smash.gg will not let me put more than 1500 for the dollar amount, so the real amount is $14,000.00
I am the most electrifying man in Brawlhalla Esports, and I should be treated as such. That means private chartered flight, UberLux to pick me up at the airport, and a suite at the hotel closest to the venue. I am the limousine ridin, jet flyin, kiss stealin, wheelin dealin, son of a gun and it's hard to keep these alligators down. You know I deserve it, so pony up, jabronis.
I recently lost my job, but almost had enough saved up to go to Shine 2017, one of the main events in the Rivals of Aether Championship Series. I will almost assuredly not be able to go otherwise. If I do end up being able to go, I'd love to help George out by running pools/Commentary/Getting new people to try rivals in my off time. I've been grinding a ton since Bigger Balcony, and I'd love to be able to show that offline.

Hey everyone, I'm Furok. I've been playing fighting games since 2007. My main games over the years include IaMP, ST, Melty Blood, BB, GG, P4A, AH3, and UNIEL. I have many top 3 and first place finishes at events in New England and New York.
I intend to enter GG as Jack-o, so nominate me for some low-tier representation!
Hi, everyone! My tag's beeWesley. I'm a 15 year old up-and-comer from British Columbia, Canada. I've been playing Melee competitively for a little over 2 years, and it has changed my life. I've been going through a lot of personal crap for a couple of years, and Melee has been an amazing distraction, where I've been able to put in time and dedication. Since I started, I said "I'm going to be the best player in the world" and even though I have a long way to go, I'm now ranked in my province and have taken sets from several ranked players in the PNW. This game has been, probably, the biggest passion in my life for the past 2 years, but, unfortunately, I haven't been able to travel barely at all for larger events, as I'm young and my parents wouldn't let me go by myself. This I why I'm asking for a decent bit of money. I plan to pay for as much as I can, but I would need help with plane tickets for my parents. There are a lot of awesome players in here, so I know I probably won't be in the top 3 most-voted, but going to this event would make my year. I haven't traveled out-of-region in 7 years, and Shine looks AMAZING. If you help me get there, I PROMISE to make a name for myself and show you what I can do. Thank you so much for reading this!
