  • Its kinda depressing that I won't be able to go to the first Nebraska local since Covid because I have no way of getting there.

    That covid... That covid... Perhaps, however, it is for a good reason that you cannot go-- one that you may never know.

    Your probably right but its still a bummer.

    If it is any consolation, my plans for, the longest time now (To some irony and much frustration), have not been coming to fruition. Let us take our time. It will be better.

    I hope that I never become a cocky jerkwad of a player. Because if I don't treat someone with respect, I've lost sight of one of my goals.
    Won a tournament at my church today, wasn't streamed sadly. I feel so happy, and like everything is paying off. Won a baby toy dino, some cereal, and a 20$ game stop gift card.

    How is that gambling? Its a sport isn’t it?

    Gambling itself isn't a sin, only if it becomes a problem.
    Doc Monocle

    Gambling is not a sin at all. Sin is disobedience to God, Who speaks to each and every one of us on a personal level. It is a sin if you are sincerely convinced that it is wrong because He told you, and you do it. The mission was, is, and always will be to free humanity from the shackles; not to impose new ones. You are FREE if you desire to be. That said, gambling as a lifestyle is imprudent, as it endangers yourself, and possibly those you care about. There is actually much to be said on this, but the simple end is that gambling does not equate to disobedience to God unless you are convicted against it, which happens when you know that God desires for you to trust in Him.

    That is slightly off-topic, but I felt compelled to say it. Congratulations, Goomboi Goomboi .

    According to infinite universe theory, waluigi got into smash somewhere.
    Guys Im scared, my 1980s furby just woke up. Wouldn't be a problem, but he has a condition where you need to turn him upside down, and push his tongue down, then put him right way up and stop holding his tongue down. I am the only one who knows how to do this. Halp its 1 in the morning here.

    Sounds like your furby is possessed lol! I had a episode with one of my old toys awhile back. So I went to upstairs to my parents' apartment to look for something I can't really remember what I was doing. My old Rescue Rangers space ship came on by itself and it scared the **** out of me as at that moment, I haven't even touched it for over a decade. It was very creepy it came on by itself.

    And that's not the only episode I have had in the apartment as one time the sink came on in the kitchen by itself I was in the living room alone up there at the moment and I quickly rush to the kitchen to see who's there and before I even make it the sink turns off. I turn around in the kitchen and I see no one there.

    The rest of my family has had weird creepy episodes alone up there as well so I think that apartment is cursed or haunted.

    Freaky, probably a native american burial ground or something. After a while he went back to sleep, and I moved him farther away from me just in case.
    I'm trying to setup my 20$ streaming setup for the tournament tomorrow. Lets see how that goes.
    The environment and religion should have nothing to do with politics.
    Goomboi
    Goomboi
    I was more saying that its everyones job to take care of earth as I've heard people say stuff about the Left being big into caring for the environment, and that your political party shouldn't make people judge whether your religious or not. Not all Republicans are religious, nor is every Democrat an atheist.

    And while I won't say their names to start a flame war, I have heard a couple of users here bring up religious people like Christians in their political posts putting those people in the same group as all Conservatives which I would disagree with. And I have even heard one user say he was all against organized religion which I find pretty messed up. It's fine if you don't want to be religious, but if you're against other people who do want to be religious there is something wrong with you. People have the right to believe if there is a God or not.

    If I win a match without taking damage, am I cool?
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    You have me in an awkward spot because a typical answer I would give is, 'It depends on the match, and who your opponent is.' Your question caused me to slip by the "am I cool?" part. Regardless, you are 'cool,' damage or not... That did not sound good, but you understand.
    Goomboi
    Goomboi
    I already know I'm cool, but am I cooler now? It was a R.O.B in the finals of a 1v1 tournament. I was bowser.
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    That is interesting. I do not know how Ultimate games generally feel, but both Bowser and R.O.B. should struggle to avoid taking damage completely when compared to other characters. The way I imagine that match-up, R.O.B. would have a difficult time handling pressure from Bowser, but if it forces Bowser off stage, then Bowser has trouble recovering his edge. Overall, I see it either way, so it becomes even more about the players.
    Hehe! If you were waiting for a riddle, I made one a few days ago. It is still unsolved, but probably for good reason. It is not fresh.

    Online smash does more harm than good. So I'm not gonna play online anymore.

    Considering the **** that just happened, I have to agree. I really should stop giving nintendo money for this **** service. I could tolerate the BS when nintendo offered free online, but charging us money now for something so bad is ridiculous.

    Sorry about that, Goomboi! There are some things that will get your threads locked, including threads that discuss topics that have already had threads made for them. I am not an expert though, so you should refer to the welcome center threads marked with "Q/A" and "Important" tags. As far as Larry the Cucumber goes, I think fourth-party suggestion threads are not accepted. However there are threads where you can state your desires just for entertainment. Simply use the search window, check the option for searching titles only, and enter key words.

    I'm confused doesn't goku have support?
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    That is a very good point! Even the "Create a Smash Ultimate Sequel Project" thread acknowledges him as a controversial character. I shall ask someone later. Though, you ought to remember that people do not necessarily follow the rules, and some slip through the cracks.
    I set my short term goal to get bowser to elite smash a month ago. I'm now one win away!
    If waluigi gets into smash I will shave my head almost bald.
    Browser is best superheavy hands down. Saying this as someone who plays all super heavies.

    Edit:I just noticed it autocorrected bowser to bowser.

    I've seen too many Charaizard players use the Side Special to try and catch people off guard. But most of the time, it really doesn't work at least on me since I either counter it, shield it, or dodge it. But I kind of think too many people try to use that move too much. I mean, it can catch certain people off guard, but it's kind of slow on start up and someone with a fast reaction time such as myself can easily see it coming and read it with a counter, shield, or dodge. If I played Charaizard more, I would use it more on reads when someone did a roll or someone was trying to get back on stage after hanging on the ledge.

    Flare Blitz is great for hard roll reads, but using it on someone at the ledge can be really risky because if you miss, you'll find yourself off stage. I'm a Zard main and I generally use it if I feel like my opponent isn't show me enough respect - if they're recklessly throwing out a ton of attacks and rarely shielding, I give them the blitz. Also it can break a weakened shield but from my experience a lot of players expect Flare Blitz then and will jump to a void it, so it's not great at that - but I don't think it's a problem that Zard has a hard time with shield break when he has three kill throws.

    I do think Bowser is better then solo Charizard. But thankfully Zard isn't meant to be played solo. Of course, having to know how to play Squirtle or Ivysaur can be off putting to someone who just wants to run around and hit people as a heavy, so I don't blame any fellow heavy enthusiast who don't like to play them.

    You have a point. But sometimes, gambling on risky reads can pay off and it's so satisfying when it does.
    I like how fast fox is.
    I find it demotivating to realize no matter how hard you try you can never be perfect at smash...or anything for that matter.

    being perfect is so bouring. i once knew a guy so perfect they never finsihed their

    There's no such thing as being perfect in Smash because how do you even define perfect? You can say it's never missing combos or tech, but you don't really need those to win. Strategy is what really defines being good at the game, but there is no such thing as perfection in strategy. Strategy relies on unknown variables such as how your opponent will react. Bad opponents can ruin good strategy by doing something dumb and then accidentally defeating said strategy. You can't predict or plan every variable and your strategy will always be in need of updating to the constantly changing situation, so there will never be any such thing as perfect strategy.

    What I find is actually valuable is being good period. Expertise gives you freedom. You aren't lost or uncertain in the sense that you can't even see how long the path is like when you were a beginner. You have the ability to mold things to your liking and forge your own style. An expert musician can take a piece and add their own variations and nuance as they see fit. An experienced strength trainer is not limited in the things he can move or the obstacles he can climb (barring extreme obstacles). A skilled Smasher can take any character and do cool stuff.

    Even if you can't attain perfection, there is still merit in attaining expertise by virtue of that sense of freedom.

    All these replies are so helpful! I know that I cannot be perfect. Which is kinda exciting knowing ill always have something to work on. Someday do you think a computer could p!at perfectly?
    That moment when online makes you angry but there's a pandemic going on and you have no friends.
