  • The way people bash Online makes me feel like **** for being a wifi warrior, since I have no one around to play offline with nor do I have the courage to go to locals.
    I believe a exploiting a superheavy's combo food flaw means a free stock for you depending on your character, since nothing saves them from being combo food. Yet some people disagree with me. I don't get it.

    You have to be perfect for that. I've rarely actually seen that be a problem unless you're fighting top level players. Part of maining them is also being able to make up for it with good trades and really good reads.

    I have to hit you 20+ times to either kill you or put you in kill %.

    You have to hit me 4 times and I’m at huge risk.

    That simple enough for you?

    Exactly. You need to be perfect to basically 0 death a heavy. People aren’t always going to read every landing option perfectly, and especially at lower levels.

    Just look at Leon. He absolutely does a great job at top level play, even if he’s Top 5 of the world.
    My train of thought: "Play who you like" doesn't work if said character is low tier or objectively bad. At least, it's not working for me, yet other low tier mains insist. I don't get it.

    If you care enough about them, you'll make it worth somehow. I've mained Bowser & Yoshi in Brawl and did pretty well against MK. This game is far more managble and balanced than Brawl.

    You answered your own question mate. "Play who you like" apparently doesn't work for you, but it works for others. Just try out different characters, maybe via selecting random?

    I have Pokemon Trainer as a main, but he's less fun than Donkey Kong, who's borderline low tier for his terrible disadvantage state.
    I imagine everyone I lose to acts like a massive **** about their win, especially if they t-bag. That's why I hate losing; I hate people who verbally and psychologically stomp on others, having been a victim of it before.
    Today is such a ****** day. SmashBoards and Twitter aren't responding to me and Anther's is to busy yapping about Terry (who I don't have yet) to acknowledge my existence. I just want to know if DK is good again.

    cause people aren't going to drop everything just because you are impatient. besides this is info you can look up YOURSELF type ''Donkey Kong buff'' on google and BAM you found your answer

    That's not it though. I know what the buffs are. I just want to know if they make him good again. This is a character I dropped after losing too much with him.

    Well, he is certainly better than he was when you dropped him.
    I read that DK got buffed. But are they good buffs? I already dropped the character multiple times.

    Play was pretty solid. Had some strong reads throughout the match with Ivysaur though Squirtle seemed to be your weaker link (Though I think that tends to be the case in general due to his weight making him easy to kill). You used him right in getting on some damage and switching to Ivy to get to kill % and finish the job (or using Zard for the big final hit).

    Did well in the end to try to keep Ridley out with razor leafs. Made good use of bullet seed as well (A move I feel isn't used a lot in general). Noticed a lot of rolling at odd times (I do this too, just a habit that has to be broken) and several grab out of shields that got punished (Also a habit I have due to Smash 4). Otherwise it was a solid set in your favor.
    People need to stop saying "git gud" like it's easy. It's complicated and gut-punching as ****, regardless of your character. It's almost the first anniversary of Ultimate and I still don't win as much as I should.
    Soneone suggested smiling after every loss. Is this psychologically a good idea?

    Probably see a psychologist. Not to sound rude or insensitive but asking for psychological advice from unqualified video game players isn't a solid solution. To over come mental issues you feel you have, even if they may seem minor, seeing someone who is certified to help you is the answer.
    If you ask me, banning Hero is silly. Just because he reads an opponent and his punish just happens to crit, that's not skill? Hero is so slow otherwise that he needs LOTS of skill to use well. People are just overgeneralizing him and his rng.
    I'm still getting laggy matches on Anther's Ladder despite having LAN. How do I fix this?

    Try de-activating any other sources that could be eating on your connection, such as social media, videos, downloads, etc. If someone is watching Netflix in your house, it also takes a toll on the connection. I basically put everything else on hold when I do online. Even my phone goes Airplane Mode.

    And lastly, there's simply a chance the other person has lag, as well.
    How do you lab teching so it can be done more consistently? I hate being jab locked and getting killed on Town & City, which for some reason isn't a banned stage.

    I believe some people have made custom stages specifically for tech practice. I'd check and see if you can find any of them for some solo tech practice.

    Why should it be a banned stage?

    As for practice. Go to stage builder. Make a box where the insides are lava and jump in. Let the lava damage you a bit to the point its flinging you around and you can practice techs
    I feel like dropping DK, my only fun character, after not being able to take even two stocks with him and his disadvantage being do bad. Should I drop him?

    No, you should really strive to improve him. He's really good when you use him right.

    Excuse me, I played DK since release. I won't take this assumption.
    It's been half a month. This is taking too long. No matter how much I improve, I still lose more than I win. This isn't right.
    I hate that messing with your opponent's mind is a viable strategy. Like, do you really feel good about purposely tilting and beating your opponent who may or may not have morbid depression? I legit felt that at least twice this year that way.
    Wigglerman
    Wigglerman
    People who don't know you wouldn't know you have depression. That aside, mind games are absolutely a legitimate strategy in any game. Poker and card games in general revolve around mind games. I'd wager the majority of the time people aren't being malicious but if they know you're easily tilted it makes it easy, either intentionally or otherwise, to trigger said 'tilt mode' to get an advantage. It's about your own mental fortitude to not fall for it or simply don't let yourself get in your own head to tilt yourself without opponent input.

    It's as much how you handle the situation as they do. Some people may feel indifferent about their opponent getting tilted. The majority of the time it isn't their fault their opponent gets tilted and wasn't their intent. But if it happens there isn't much they can do about it at that point. A win is a win and the loser has to hold that L and self reflect to prevent tilting in the future. Those rare players who DO feel some sort of alleged 'pride' in a win caused by tilting are there to win, especially if money is on the line. If they can exploit a weakness in their opponent, they'll use it. It's part of competition.

    I wouldn't take it personally unless you KNOW the person, for a fact, is just being insufferable to make you in particular feel bad. Like going out of his way to ensure you have a bad time, always. Which could be difficult to prove. Some people have a play style or play a character that is 'tilt inducing' and may not be something they do intentionally to agitate people. In the end though, it isn't up to your opponent to know mental conditions of their opponents. That's up to the player. If one has easily triggered depression that is agitated by stressful situations like competitive games...one honestly should consider if getting into a competitive state of mind for gaming is for them. If you're playing for fun to begin with and the competitive side doesn't matter to you...then brush it off. Them being punks shouldn't matter because you're just playing for fun anyway. Find new opponents and avoid those who do happen to bother you.
    What do people mean by "It's just a game" when talking to frustrated players?
    Wigglerman
    Wigglerman
    It means, essentially, to not get worked up. It is, after all, 'just a game'. Some people tend to see games as something to not get worked up over. However, most of us know that games we are passionate about can cause us to become 'worked up'. I often repeat this same line to sports fans who get worked up over their current spectacle. The same people to often say this to me when I get frustrated at a video game.
    I haven't hit a skill ceiling, I just keep switching mains. But I want to play a superheavy AND a janky combo character, but no one is both. What to do?
    I'm getting tired of MKLeo pwning all the time. The fact that he mains a character that SOMEHOW didn't get any deserved nerfs makes it that much worse.

    If any of you main Joker, we CANNOT play.
    xzx
    xzx
    But Joker needs nerfs though. Not even taking MKLeo into account. Arsene Joker is borderline "broken".
    RealPokeFan11
    RealPokeFan11
    Joker is a little strong with Arsene, but he's nowhere near busted. He's pretty easy to defeat once you get used to fighting him. At most, he needs a small nerf.
    Rᴀᴍᴇɴ
    Rᴀᴍᴇɴ
    I personally think Joker is fine. Arsene can be a hassle to with, but you just need to play safe against. If you have to, camp against it so it runs out, but you would mainly want to play safe against it. Whenever you get the chance, perform combos on Joker when he leaves himself open so you decrease the duration of Arsene. Don't forget that when Joker whiffs a side-B with Arsene, he's very punishable. I think that if you follow what I say, Joker with Arsene would be less of a problem for you. Like what RealPokeFan11 said, Arsene will get easier to deal with once you get used to fighting it.

    Also, I don't mind seeing MKLeo dominating all the time because you can tell that he worked hard for all of his victories. Joker is, in my opinion, a pretty hard character to pick up and play, so seeing him preform so well is nice to me. Plus, him dominating all the time will only inspire players to get better at the game, which means better competition, which means better matches to watch, which means more stuff to learn from the pros. I think it's a win-win situation from everyone.
    I was told I perform worse when pressured by my opponent. How do I fix that?

    By actually following the advice i gave you and stop complaining 24/7. You will never be a better player if you dont put in the time and effort to practice.
    You know, I think I'm not good enough for any Smash crew. I just wanna do some Crew Battles.
    I played my first Online Tourney. I got 0-2 both games. I'm dropping Pokemon Trainer. I'm not good at this game. There is no hope for me.

    I also thought of quititng, just yesterday, in the middle of a tournament (actually outright asked for a refund and a DQ). Just don't take online for any value. Get out there, and play in real tournament settings. It's the only way you'd truly undertsand. Online is worthless, for this.

    For the record, I basically got over it. It's just a cruel illusion, when you're persistent. For me, it's being to the point I'm fighting for either the pain of losing or the pain of regret (quitting).
    So this meditation advice... Does it really work? And how long should I do it?

    It works. Meditation is essentially working out for the mind to increase your concentration. You should start meditating daily for 2 minutes and then slowly build up from there when you get the hang of it. A small effort like that would change your life for the better.

    Here are some videos explaining how you should meditate and all the benefits that come with it.

    I also highly recommend watching the tamed course of his, it gives great advice on how to build confidence and discipline.

    Superheavies are extremely busted and spammy in FFA.
    Wigglerman
    Wigglerman
    Busted? No. Spammy? Perhaps. Heavies also tend to be caught in the middle of EVERYTHING and get bodied a lot. My friends who play Bowser, DK or Ganon often get demolished early on in the midst of all the chaos since they can't really get out of the fray.
    @Blue__Falcon Yes, if I'm against a player I lose to a lot, a player who ranks higher than me on Anther's Ladder, or a character I can never beat, I automatically know I lost. I generally lose a lot more than I win, no matter how hard I practice, and it's screwed up my enjoyment with the game.

    The best way to deal with your problem is to build confidence and the best way to build it is to practice properly.

    And when i say properly i dont mean that you have to practice daily for 5 hours and fight level 9 cpus, i mean that practicing 10 to 20 minutes against level 1 cpu and practicing combos on them.

    Why? Because practicing movement is the first step in getting better at smash.

    You also need go to training mode to practice things like short hops, turn arounds, rar's etc to practice movements that doesnt involve combos.

    You need to practice your movement daily to the point that it becomes natural.
    Worrying about not executing certain moves properly will cost you the match and it wont help you improve.

    At some point your movement and character will feel so natural to you that you dont even need to focus on both of these things, you can then focus on your opponent which you should do.

    You also need to play reactively instead of preemptively. You need to play off of hoge opponents actions and captilize on them rather than attacking for the sake of it. Its important to analyze your opponents behaviour and decide whether you should attack, play defensively etc.

    Save your losses and analyze them, look at the mistakes you made so you can patch them up, it helps alot.

    And also look at top players of your mains and study them.

    I hope this helps, good luck practicing!

    Also i forgot to mention that you should take a break from facing skilled players until your confident enough in your skills.

    And have fun playing smash, dont worry about going up againts high level players or cpus. Just play the game the way that you'll enjoy it and you'll get out of this negative slump.
    Whenever I ask people how to fix my loser mentality, I never get a real answer; it's always "everyone functions differently, you'll have to figure it out yourself".

    Problem is, I know what needs to be changed, but I don't know how to change it. Forcing myself to feel positive didn't work, so what should I do?

    Deleted member
    Loser mentality in what sense? That you'll think youre gonna lose anyways or when the match gets too difficult? And what other things are you struggling with?
    I blame sexist stereotyping and feminism for the "Ivysaur is female despite not sounding like it in English" consensus.

    Sorry not sorry.

    For the older English speaking community specifically, it's largely because a majority of Brawl/PM players back in the day were using mods that changed the English voices to Japanese, got used to it and stuck with the headcanon because others did so, or because they liked it themselves.

    Feminism has nothing to do with it in that regard. And in my opinion, it is childish to get upset over it one way or the other, particularly when Pokemon are ambiguous/can have varying genders to begin with. People are gonna call whatever they like whatever they feel like.
    Is it possible to improve by beating worse players and working your way up from there? Losing 10 times in a row to anyone else is doing absolutely nothing but making me feel like ****.

    Nah. To improve you have to learn from your mistakes against good players and work your way into giving them trouble. That's when you know you are improving.

    Beating weaker players all the time only stagnates you.

    KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 Uh, no kidding? So the game doesn't experience input lag? Do you think carrying around big ass CRT's is fun or something? Or finding a new one once yours breaks? Stick with Ultimate.
