    Just so everybody knows, Melee's top 5 in Houston are: RoyR(falcon), SideEffect(fox), Sethlon(roy), TGM/xyro(samus), G@be(falcon). The ranking was ended march 2008 due to 95% of the melee scene switching to brawl.

    Some Gamestops will be having a Smash tourney on March 9th weekend when Brawl comes out. I was TOLD that it will be Melee, but I'm thinking it will actually be Brawl. I believe it is Nintendo sponsored and free to enter. If you win the local one, you'll move on the district championships. Win the district, and you'll move onto regional. The top 8 in each region will get to go to LA for the championships. I don't know what any of the prizes are or what the ruleset will be, but it certainly is worth investigating if you have the time. At the very least, it's a free trip to LA. I believe the tournaments will be held ONLY at Gamestops that are having Midnight Openings, so check with the store nearest you for more info.

    Also, be sure you guys register for the Trash Day tournament that will be taking place at UH in April. It will almost certainly be Brawl. There will be other fighting games there as well, and many OOC/OOS people usually show up...

    Nice to me? If anything I was nice to you. Oh mann personal attacks now I love it, way to keep it in the game. Someone is getting mad ;).... well, lets go then.


    Hmm, if anyone here has met my cousin, they would know as much as you should(or maybe you're just as ****ed up as he is... mag does that to ya) that he is one of the weirdest, stupidest, most annoying people I have ever met, and yeah that sure is a credible source to tell me of how much a retard I really am.

    I am actually a very nice guy, I just treat others how they treat me. I do tend to joke around from time to time, and if you cant take the heat, get the **** out the kitchen and quit crying. I have GROWN over the years through this game Gabe, and I thought with time you would too. But you still get mad at pointless things, and you still take this game way too seriously.


    Lmao, Gabe you got 5 stocked, don't compare yourself to ANYONE. Especially not Roy.


    This was never meant to be an argument silly goose.

    I've been watching videos and scanning the stage boards, and here's my opinion on stuff.

    Apparently the Frigate Orpheon stage may be counterpickable, because apparently they give you a warning or something right before the stage rotates.

    I heard that Pictochat may be a counterpick in the vein of how PokeFloats was for Melee. Strange, with a lot of stuff going on, but playable.

    Pokemon Stadium should no longer be a random neutral pick, but a counterpick. Even though some characters can neutral A infinite, the stage changes a lot, so you'll be able to get out of it, IF YOU SUCK ENOUGH TO GET CAUGHT IN THE LITTLE HOLE IT MAKES ON THE GROUND (?) THEMED POTION OF THE STAGE!!! Pokemon Stadium 2 is a definite ban though.

    Angel World could cause a big problem for characters that rely on tether recoveries (ZSS, Ivysaur, Olimar) because of the destructability of the platforms.

    Luigi's Mansion seems perfectly fine to me.

    Other than that, I don't feel like remembering any of the other controversial stages right now, and typing more opinion here. Because this is the internet, where nobody cares about anyone elses opinion.

    Also, Jake, you need to turn your Government textbook in to the book room, apparently. You were on this big list that Doc Savage had in class today.

    Edit

    I was wrong about Mario Circuit. But I still don't like it as a stage much.

    takeurlife, you are worried about decent players? i can anem 10 that would beat you. Is that good enough? I dont mean that ina rude way but Houston is officaly better than Dallas and SA. we only fall behind austin, now. not that it matter cause melee is over.


    Now for stages, i have seen the threads on what levels should be legal and which one should not. I agree with some and i disagree with some.

    BUT!

    there are some things tha need to be taken ito account. Most characers can get back to the stage with thier 2nd jump. ive notice 3rd jumps are rarly used. 2ndly, almost every stage now has some sort of enviormental harzard, i banned the ones that have EXTREME hazard(norfair comes o mind) but the others like great sea or sky world i allow becuase its not too terribly bad. Again, untill a SWF rule set is made, i think we should obey the rules set up at the top. if anybody disagrees, plz consider the 2 things a side above and tell me your piece, if im wrong, ill change it immediatly.

    From playing the game right off the pack allan you need to ban pokemon stadium 2... or use it as a counterpick at best.... but I think ban.

    832-482-5588 is my cell, and my house is 31218 West Timberloch Trail.

    And for stage discussion...


    I really think that Bridge of Eldin, Shadow Moses, Skyworld, and Corneria should not be random stages.

    Bridge of Eldin is pretty much just FD except alot bigger, minus the need to recover, and added in stage hazards with the King Moblin dude and the bombs. Definatly wouldn't put a ban on it, but its too strange a stage to be neutral.

    Shadow Moses' walls really screw up matches...until you break them people can live for forever (unless you're a char that has a good off the top kill, which i could see being really unfair to those without it), and from what i've heard you can infinite people against the walls with rapid A attacks, and no DI or anything else will get you out of it. Plus, no edge, so recovery is again not there.

    Skyworld is alright, except for the weird platforms. Being able to bounce people off the bottom of the top platform is weird. The whole not being able to tether to the edge when the spot is broken is a big disadvantage for the chars that rely on it. And if fox's downthrow can still throw down through clouds like he can on the 64 yoshi's stage, a downthrow at any % could possibly be a free stock for fox, as long as the platforms broken.

    And Corneria...come on, its corneria. Fin whoring, camping, low ceiling, its just a not neutral stage in general. And if you don't think you can't camp on here. check out some of Simna's vids of his ness on this stage, its rediculous.

    I think that Delfino Plaza and the Frigate Orpheon shouldn't be on random either, just because they're weird, and we don't need that many random stages.


    Pokemon Stadium 2 should be either a counter pick or banned, IMO. The ice sliding/conveyer belts/air floatiness really screws with play.

    I think Norfair could be a counterpick. The lava is an issue, but it is on brinstar too, and it never got banned.

    Castle Siege seems like it could be a good counterpick. Maybe even a random, but i imagine a good amount of people would disagree with that.

    I dunno about the rest of the stages.

    RocketTrainer, that list is **** for a few reasons. If you want to do things right, do what AZ is doing. Houston as a community will debate on ruleset and then from there collaborate with the rest of the communities.

    Honestly Sethlon I agree with alot of things you say, but I'll throw in my own opinions later.

    Battlefield, FD, Lylat Cruise, Halberd, Yoshi's Island, Spear Pillar (although in all honesty i haven't seen anything about this stage, so i have no clue where it should be), Smashville, and Pkmstadium. Luigi's mansion/Castle Siege possible?

    Thats a possible 10 stages, which is alot more than Melee's 6 (Yoshi's Story, FD, Battlefield, Fountain of Dreams, Pkm Stadium and Dreamland)

    Honestly, I think the only stages that can be considered neutral are FD, Battlefield, Smashville, Yoshi's Island (Brawl), Luigi's Mansion, and Lylat Cruise. All the other levels in the game...they have some sort of element that can interfere with gameplay, which goes against the definition of being neutral.

    I disagree with Spear Pillar and Halberd simply because they both contain elements that interfere with gameplay. Halberd has the laser cannon and the cannonballs, while Spear Pillar has the random attacks by the Pokemon and the stage tilts every so often. These could be counter-picks, but not neutral.

    As for stages that have any sort of wall...it could be a while before a decision can be made whether they should be banned or not because of infinites due to jabs/Shine.

    I still suggest three stocks for the time being. Since the game is still new to everyone, the average match takes a minimum of four minutes or so. Later on, it can be changed to four if needed. It's either that, or tournaments may have to start three hours early than usual...

    Any possible input from people who have the game *coughJeremycough* would help.

    well advanced play tends to get faster so i think 4 stocks should stay now that i think of it. if all else fails, just slap a time limit on the 4 stock games.

    Guys, advanced techs are being found all over the place.

    For once I agree with you. Will me and Mr.3000 sat and played for about 4 hours...we started to notice something right off the back. We would play with rotating controller (not just winners) so everyone had a chance to play, but anyways we noticed that the wait time was TOO MUCH... image watching a link ditto from melee on dream land. All the matches took FOREVER(understatement) so we wanted to drop the stock count down to three. If you put a time limit on you only influence people who camp or "bait" you for the remainder of the match... long story short, drop the stock to 3...for now atleast... when people discover those easy/cheap kills I.E shine, I guess we can raise the stock... but Im sure all of you just watching matches on youtube you have an idea of how long these matches are...

    Also Ima put up a match of me playing sonic soon.

    Agreed. For the time being, me and David are going to work out our own personal list of what we feel about counterpicks, legality, and infinites, then we'll post it and discuss what to do from there as a community.

    The more involvement by all, the better.

    We should however, be open to having MORE things legal than less. Hence communal discussion.

    Jeremy.

    this was a problem when melee 1st came out. but as advanced play came in. the worries all went away. We will get faster at this game. and spam is just as bad as is was in melee. and we all deal with it fine. To deal with spam.......stay in your foes face.
