Pound 2016, also known as Pound VI, was the seventh event in the Pound tournament series created by Plank, and the first major Pound tournament since Pound V in 2011. The event took place in McLean, Virginia from April 2-3, 2016. Tournaments were hosted by Plank in conjunction with Nintendude and TheTantalus, from the VGBootCamp team.[1]

Summary[edit]

Plank, Pound 2016's tournament organizer, was the only tournament organizer featured on the Tournament Organizer Blacklist due to his inability to pay out players at Pound V in 2011.[2][3] Plank has since been removed from the blacklist, after several players reported receiving payment from Pound V.[4][5][6] Registration was officially opened on December 4th, 2015.

Pound 2016 currently stands as one of the largest Smash Bros tournaments to date, with 933 entrants for Melee and 514 entrants (the maximum number) for Smash 4.

With ZeRo's absence from the Smash 4 event due to medical issues, Abadango won his first major American tournament using Mewtwo, a character generally considered to be mid tier at the time. Dabuz failed to make top eight while Nairo was eliminated early on at a disappointing 49th place, his worst placing at a major so far. Marss and Pink Fresh also notably placed 3rd and 7th, respectively. In the Melee event, Hungrybox took his third major in a row without dropping a set, losing only a single game to Mango in grand finals; Mango additionally fell to Hax in winners' semis, though he later ousted him in losers' finals. Swedish Delight and Laudandus both made unexpected top eight finishes while InfiniteNumbers placed 9th at his first-ever major, beating DJ Nintendo, Alex19, MacD, and Mike Haze; Axe and Westballz also suffered early losses, placing 25th and 33rd respectively.

Trivia[edit]

  • The 512 player cap for Smash 4 was exceeded by 1 due to a player from the rewards shop being added after the cap had been hit.
  • Pound 2016 stands as Nairo's worst placing in Smash 4, at 49th place.
  • This was the first Smash 4 American major won by a Japanese player, Abadango.
    • This also means it was the first Smash 4 American major not won by ZeRo or Nairo.
    • This was also the first Smash 4 national tournament to be won with Mewtwo in grand finals.
