If you know anything about the Smash Community on Long Island, then you know about CROSSFIRE II! This massive tournament, hosted by StreetPass admin The DuL0R, featured competitions in both double and single battle in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Project M. Over 80 competitors participated in CROSSFIRE II, which was held at Empire Gaming in Farmingdale, NY. StreetPass Long Island held a 3DS Friendlies Competition, which included Mario Kart 7, Pokemon B&W2 and Kid Icarus: Uprising.

You can also watch a replay of the live stream that was running during the event, on the CLASH Stream Channel on Twitch TV.
For Long Island gamers, Farmingdale was the place to brawl on 3.16.13! With over 75 competitors, the new CROSSFIRE Series by theDuL0R and ANTi was a huge success! Competing in the top Smash games (Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Project M), gamers came to compete for cash prizes in both Singles and Doubles Tournaments.
The CROSSFIRE Event Series is held at Empire Gaming & Comics, located at 337 Main Street in Farmingdale, NY. Empire Gaming has a great space for all of our Wii and GC Set Ups, and we plan to return for many future events there!
In addition to the huge Brawl Tournament, Empire Gaming was really awesome and set up a “StreetPass Lounge” complete with couches and an N64 for some old school Brawling! Taking advantage of this extra space, StreetPass Long Island set up shop in the StreetPass Lounge. Free pizza and sodas were given out, and friendly matches of Sonic All-Star Racing Transformed 3DS and Mario Kart 7 were ongoing! We were even able to get our first group photo of some of our SPLI members! (Sorry to those who arrived later and were not around when this picture was taken! Next time!!)
Due to the HUGE success of the CROSSFIRE event series, there will be more installments in the near future! Check back in May for more details! Hope to see you at Empire Gaming!

Last weekend, StreetPass Long Island held our first official Meet Up Event! It was called Brawl it Out – APEX Edition, and was held as a weekend-long event from Saturday Nov. 24 to Sunday Nov. 25. We held the event at a comic book store called The Arena, located in West Babylon, NY.
On Saturday we held three separate Brawl Tournaments, including SSBB Singles and Doubles, as well as a Project M Tournament to end the evening.
We had a great turnout and the battles were heated to say the least! Everyone showed off their skills and the victors were awarded cash prizes. Good luck to everyone who will be continuing their battles at APEX 2013!
On Sunday we held a Pokemon Black and White Doubles Tournament. The turnout was a little smaller but the competition was just as fierce! We had a variety of age and experience levels at the Pokemon Tournament, which makes for a much more interesting battle atmosphere!
The winner of the Pokemon Tournament won a cash prize and a Pokemon Prize Pack from Comic Con! Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to everyone who participated! We also had a nice turnout of spectators for both events, and we had a lot of fun just playing 3DS games and getting StreetPasses too.
All of the details of the event and a listing of the winners can be found on the Smash Boards page: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=330250
SPLI is working on setting up a BIG PROJECT that will be a lot of fun! Please keep an eye out for updates from SPLI to learn more. We hope to see you at our next StreetPass event!
