On March 1st, 2017, the 4BR released Tier List V3, the latest Smash for Wii U Tier List. After some in-house discussion with Smash for Wii U Backroom members as well as time for various opinions on the list to form, we'd like to address a handful of the more frequently asked questions, as well as talk a bit about some of the characters who have generated more discussion than others.

As a fighting game's meta progresses, it is common to see tier lists being formed, often as a reference towards a character's tournament viability. The Smash community has done this for all games, with all of them having regularly updated tier lists. It's been half a year since the last 4BR Tier List, and with the metagame transforming, it's time for a new iteration!

Flashback to 2015, where Illinois saw the town of Gurnee hold a Smash tournament in Key Lime Cove, an aquatic waterpark. What started off as an event with a clever name and fitting venue from GamersHQ became the meeting grounds for Illinois's largest Smash Bros. event ever, holding over 600 attendees, competitors and spectators. It was truly a sight to behold, with Smash 4, Melee and Project M being the featured games.

Now, it's 2016, and GHQ has returned with Smash 'N' Splash 2. Welcome back to paradise, Smashers. Enjoy your stay.

March 2016 has passed, and so another month has happened in the world of Smash 4. A patch took everyone by surprise, balancing out the cast and drastically changing up two of the biggest characters in the meta. Along with that, however, came many events and community developments. As per usual with the series, the State of Smash 4 takes an in-depth, comprehensive look into Smash 4's competitive metagame over the past month. With that out of the way, it's time to get started with March 2016.

It's been just over a week since SilentWolf announced that he was leaving GameClucks and would become a free agent, and in that short span of time, the Fox main has acquired a new sponsor. Team Secret has announced that they would be sponsoring SilentWolf as their first Super Smash Bros. Melee player.

SilentWolf was ranked as the 11th best Melee player in the world on Melee It On Me's SSBMRank for 2015, and has shown a strong performance so far in 2016, including a 17th place finish at Genesis 3 and 7th at Battle of the Gods. Team Secret is known for its top level eSports teams in games like CS:GO and DOTA 2; it's exciting to see Team Secret join the growing list of eSports teams to have Smash players on their rosters.

With plenty of interesting and smaller events occurring this month, as well as plenty of community developments (and controversies), there's quite a bit to talk about.

With that out of the way, it's time to get started with February 2016's events....
