Stated on their about page, since the culmination of their group, they dedicate to improving and expanding the eSports community by focusing on providing beneficial impact for the community.

Project M Central[edit]

In an effort to re-centralize the Project M community and provide a consistent home stream, on April 12, 2015, the Tourney Locator crew announced that they would be making a new channel for all of their PM events through a new stream, Project M Central, and will be in charge of streaming Paragon Los Angeles 2015, the Infinity and Beyond Weeklies, TLOC $1K monthlies and Bowser's Revenge monthlies. The goal of Tourney Locator was to create a vision to ensure that Project M has a home and that the community remains unified. Currently Project M Central is streamed only through hitbox.tv.

Challenger Approaching Program[edit]

Early on, Tourney Locator realized that there were serious hindrances in the ability for competitors to travel and compete in different regions. To encourage traveling and cross pollination of skills the "Challenger Approaching Program" was created. The primary intent is to empower skilled players across the world with the opportunity to be flown to our central location in Dallas, TX to compete against our local community. Looking for those that have a positive impact on their scene, we have had the pleasure of the following guests. Several of these guest include Wizzrobe for Melee, Frozen for Project M, ESAM for Project M, Smash Wii U and Melee, DEHF for both Smash Wii U and Melee, Axe and Lucky for both Melee and Project M. The program has been currently been discontinued as of 2015.

Unique Monthlies[edit]

TLOC $1K[edit]

Tourney Locator presents their $1k series showcasing a specific smash title ((Alternates between either Melee, Project M, or Super Smash Bros. 4)) for the month. Hosted at FX Game Exchange, the series will have a guaranteed prize structure that pays out to the top 8 entrants for singles and doubles. With 1 wave of Round Robin pools leading to a 32-entrant bracket. This series is usually created during a non-major or non-regional timing window as to not interfere with big smash tournaments and allow for the group to commentate, record, and stream those tournaments. The monthly is currently discontinued.

AWW... ISN'T THAT CUTE - ARCADIAN[edit]

FX Game Exchange, the premier venue for Super Smash Bros in the DFW presents its Arcadian tournament! An Arcadian is a tournament intended to highlight phenomenal players incapable of breaking the top 10 mold (for local region). The monthly currently has occurred between the winter/spring between January-April.
