Oh, hai there.
My name is Kenny, 20 years of age, and currently a sophomore at a community college. I would like to find some sparring partners to practice and get better with in Smash, if I can.
Hmm... I guess you can call me a gamer, given I spend a lot of time playing video games than doing anything else, even schoolwork. ...I should snap out of that habit. Some of my favorite video game series include Pokémon, Mario, Rayman, Dead Space, Sly Cooper, and of course, Smash Bros. I also love listening to older music, as well as tracks from video games. Music these days is kinda bad, so there are only a handful of newer songs that I love. Favorite bands and artists right now include, but are not limited to, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Eagles, David Bowie, Steely Dan, and the Beatles.
I'm laid back, friendly, quiet, and overall a very shy person. Sometimes I can come off as a jerk, as a couple of people pointed out, but I never really realize it until I figure out what I said a while ago. I have a bit of social anxiety to top off with my shyness, so I always tend to keep to myself most of the time and I don't like having a lot of attention centered around me. It's never fun for me to admit that I'm wrong about something, and I will stop at nothing to prove otherwise; a consequence for having a bit of a superiority complex; that can go on and off, however, because I doubt myself most of the time, which is usually why I refrain from getting into an argument unless it gets really personal for me. I am also very emotional; I don't like fighting of any kind (except in games, obviously...), I'm very sympathetic, and I adore many animals, particularly cute ones like rabbits or cats. I am bisexual, with a slightly greater preference for women.
I enjoy watching TV, and some of my favorite shows right now include The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, Survivor, Mom, and Modern Family, among older sitcoms that I have watched endless times like Friends, That 70's Show, and Seinfeld. Contrary to the amount of bronies I've befriended, I am not one myself. I do enjoy watching cartoons, however, but that's mainly older ones like Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, and Animaniacs; the cartoons these days are kinda "eh." I am in no ways an anime enthusiast, so those little references around here will always fly over my head. That doesn't mean I'll say no to posting anime pictures, however.
...Last time I checked, I'm a guy. Though I am socially awkward, I am very humble and I mean well to many. My ideal date should share my interests, be intelligent, and maybe even wear glasses; I have a pretty huge affinity for girls in glasses. However, it is impossible to have that all at once, so one can only dream of such...
The Internet is an interesting place, to say the least. All around, I discover new(ish) memes, encounter new YouTube videos that entertain me, and... Other things... That leave me smiling and satisfied...
SUPER SMASH BROS.
Smash 4 (Casual)
This game is really up my alley! More balanced all around, with all characters constantly being tweaked, this is my best Smash Bros. game I play by far. This is also the Smash Bros. game I will focus on the most and be more serious about; I also own Brawl, but I mostly play it just for fun and I don't take it as seriously. But that doesn't mean I'll say no to an occasional free-for-all on this game!
Nowadays, I just felt an overall lack of motivation to try and improve my playstyle. As a result, I decided to retire from focusing on the competitive aspect of the game to better myself, at least for the time being. I'll still be paying attention to Smash 4 tournaments, however.
Cloud- I'm going to be working on trying to improve my game with Cloud. He is definitely an interesting character that was well worth the salt for me, and that up-air is quite a useful weapon he has! While he is solidified as my main, his weaknesses, such as his bad recovery and inconsistent KO abilities, are too exploitable, so I want to have a dual main to cover those weaknesses.
Mario- As of late, I decided to use Mario some more. Watching him do so well in tournies these days, as well as his relative ease of use, made me decide to start using him more and learning about him. So far, he feels really easy to use and very fluid in general, and it's been pretty great learning about the character as much as I can.
R.O.B.- R.O.B. feels so much better to play as in this game than he was in Brawl. So many useful projectiles and attacks in his arsenal, and I just really like this character overall. As such, I made him a secondary, only being used for certain matches.
King Dedede- The big D is heartbreaking in this game. I fell in love with him (in a different way, folks!) back in Brawl, and when Smash 4 came out, I came running back to him. ...As the game went on, however, he felt very, very bad compared to the majority of the characters, and it resulted in me demoting him to where he is, now. However, even then, King Dedede is still a very potent secondary of mine. Despite his significant nerfs and slow speed, he still holds a special place in my heart. Even then, after constant disappointment with the balance patches and his aforementioned flaws, I decided to demote him. I'll still use him, but much less often than my mains.
Bayonetta- Once upon a time, this sexy witch was put on the spotlight, due to her being perceived as a broken character, with her zero-to-death combos being very notable. I have used Bayo during this time, and I found a little enjoyment in her, but after a while, that enjoyment staled and I eventually found her to be not very fun anymore, so I dropped her. My view of her has changed after I have seen Bayo's potential even after the nerfs she got after I dropped her, and she doesn't seem so bread-and-butter like she used to be. As such, I have decided to pick her back up and learn to use her again, albeit as a secondary and potential counterpick.
For Fun/Characters I've Considered:
Kirby- I've been starting to use Kirbeh recently. I've used him a few times in practice and I seemed to hold my own with him. He has multiple jumps, a decent air game, and his up-throw is pretty dang devastating. After learning about him a little, I figured that I would decide to use him just for fun and keep him on a back burner.
Bowser- I've used Bowser along with a multitude of characters before I dropped many completely. However, I still held on to Bowser, and recently, I have thought about picking him up as another main of mine. He is crazy powerful and has long range, but he's also a huge target and his landing options are very iffy.
Captain Falcon- The Falcon has arrived. He has improved from his Brawl days, and now he wants vengeance. ...Sadly, I can mainly give him that in a for fun standpoint, but maybe one day I can learn more about the character and maybe even use him as a main.
Mewtwo- Admit it. When you saw Mewtwo was returning, you were excited. When you first got it and realized it was still mediocre, you stopped using him. But now, with Abadango's rise to prominence using the character after the buffs it got, you picked it up again. ...That's pretty much my story in a nutshell. I mainly got back to using Mewtwo mainly because of its buffs and Aba's success, but I have beaten around the bush with whether or not I wanted to main it, because it's rather tricky to use.
Help me. This game has taken over my life and soul.
Heroes with their own unique playstyle and personality, with a perfect balance of strengths and weaknesses. I don't typically play FPS games, but Overwatch just does it for me. It's that good.
My Personal Ranking of the Characters
(Orisa is ranked 19th; between Pharah and Torbjörn)
A Bit Overused...:
Junkrat- Sometimes, it can be a perfect day for some mayhem. The Australian pyromaniac and demolitions user, Junkrat, is the hero that I use the most overall, and the one that I have the most fun with by far. I use him when I want to distance myself and go crazy with explosives and traps galore. Whether it be control maps or particular areas on defense, I look no further than this guy. He is that much fun, even in spite of how unpopular he is in the current Overwatch metagame. Hell, I even toss him around in competitive from time to time, but far less often than my other heroes.
My Other Primaries:
Lúcio- Lose yourself to dance. Lúcio's an all-rounder Support hero, who is highly mobile and can ride on walls. Using him a few times made me see how useful he was as a hero, so I decided to make him my primary healer. In competitive, Lúcio is my healer of choice when my team is in dire need of one.
Orisa- The new tank, created by a prodigy. Orisa's a decent alternative to Reinhardt, and has a multitude of abilities that make her unique in her own way. The changes she received, in fact, help her become a highly effective tank, her being able to protect her team consistently. I can commonly call upon her for Defense.
Pharah- Here she is in all her jetting glory. Pharah is Junkrat, except she can fly, requires a bit more aim, and, well, she's an Egyptian girl. I have no idea why I thought I wouldn't get used to her, after a couple times using her, she turned out to be a very fun to use. I can definitely see myself using her more and more, maybe even replace Junkrat with her entirely. Overtime, Pharah became more and more fun to use, eventually taking the spot as one of my primary heroes I use.
Soldier: 76- ...Wait, what happened to soldiers 1-75? This is the primary offense hero that I use. If I want to be more rounded with my gameplay, 76 is the way to go for me. He's a good character for medium-ranged fighting, and he also comes armed with a way to heal his teammates. Overall a decent hero to use, and one I can greatly rely on. In competitive, Soldier's my main offense hero, mainly used for much-needed DPS.
Winston- You know, at first I kinda looked down upon Winston. However, after being able to see how useful he can be in certain maps, as well as his ability to harass his opponents, I decided to pick him up. His main use? Genji's been a pain in my side lately, and Winston makes an excellent counter to him, granted if I can keep up with Genji. Competitive has begun to favor dive composition recently, causing myself to favor Winston over Reinhardt when it comes to picking a tank.
D.Va- The cute Korean gamer girl with a mech. I started really using D. Va during the PTR stage, and the buffs she received are a very nice addition for her, making her more like a tank than she was before. In light of the nerfs she received to her health pool, using her requires more careful actions, so I decided to regulate her to secondary use. With dive comp becoming more popular, however, I can see myself calling upon D.Va more often if I wanted.
Reaper- King of the Edge. Reaper is the very first hero I picked up and used. Purely offense, who likes to get up close and personal with his foes. Getting used to him will take a while for me, since I tend to be pretty reckless, but recently I've been getting better with how I use Reaper. Tanks have been becoming less popular as of late, so Reaper, along with other flankers like Genji and Tracer, have put themselves back on the map.
Reinhardt- The tanky old man in a steel shell comes armed with a shield and a giant hammer. I choose Reinhardt when my group requires a good utility tank. Using Reinhardt requires a lot of team support, which is an aspect of Overwatch that everyone needs to focus on. With the current metagame shifting towards a more dive oriented playstyle, Reinhardt struggles to fit in, causing my usage of him to dwindle, whereas Winston ascends as my primary tank.
Zenyatta- Peace and blessings be upon you all. Zenyatta is a more aggressive support hero and a somewhat useful alternative. I started using him a lot more following Ana's addition to the game and the buffs he received, and I really enjoy playing aggressively with him.
Ana- Mother knows best. Ana is an interesting character, being both an expert sniper and a support hero. I've found myself using her from time to time, as she's likely the easiest sniper to play in the game, due to her not being able to score headshots. Right now, I need a lot of work to use her effectively, but I think it's safe to say that I'll find myself using Ana more.
Bastion- Recent changes blessed Bastion in making him a much better pick for teams, turning him into a tank melter and making his Recon mode much better to use, as well. As such, I found myself getting to use him a bit more. I still hold true to the fact that he gets Play of the Game a bunch, tho.
Genji- Ok, I'll admit it; I'm a mediocre Genji player. I played Genji a couple times before dropping him, and now I'm using him once again. He's fast and agile, and pretty difficult to use effectively, but he is definitely fun to play, and fun to watch. I usually call upon him if an enemy Bastion proves to be a little bit too annoying for myself...
McCree- It's high noon somewhere in the world. McCree is pretty fun to use, but he's rather difficult to master. But I say with a little more practice and hard work, I can find myself using McCree more and more often, and following the buffs he received, I can really start to liken him to Soldier: 76. My aim with him began to fall off, due to my lack of using McCree lately, which resulted in his demotion to here.
Sombra- The notorious hacker from Mexico. I'm doing ok with her, though I need a lot more work with her abilities and her aim. At this rate, she might actually need a few buffs to her abilities rather than nerfs, as she is a weak character right now to many.
Zarya- In light of the recent nerfs to D.Va, picking up a new 2nd tank seems like a good idea. Roadhog and Zarya have begun to see increased usage by myself as I search for a reliable 2nd tank to use alongside Reinhardt. Zarya is more difficult to use, but she is at least able to provide some protection to her team in her Projected Barriers, which also aid in building up her attack power. Her ult, when used in conjunction with other ultimate abilities like Pharah's, can also potentially be devastating to enemies.
For the Memes:
Symmetra- She's autistic, she's b****y, and she's got hips that don't lie. Other than that, I find her a bit frustrating to play. Setting up sentries and finding a place to set up my Teleporter does not seem to bode well for me. She did receive huge changes in her playstyle, but it will still take a while to get used to her. At this rate I mainly use Symmetra to mess around and meme with.
Torbjörn- Much like Symmetra, I only use Torbjörn to mess around and meme with. He is fun, and his turrets are annoying, but if you manage to work around them, Torb's not much of a threat. His Ultimate's pretty devastating when the situation calls for it, though, and he can also provide some additional padding for his allies, which is always nice.
Hanzo- Hanzo recently got demoted to this spot. I just found him more and more difficult to play as time went on, but rest assured, he's a bit easier to handle than Widow. You'll see me using Hanzo rarely, only if I decided to try something new.
Mei- Freezing! Ice walls! Thicc as f***! I used Satan a couple of times, but I couldn't really get used to her.
Mercy- As lovely as Mercy is, she is a passive character, that strictly provides support, and I like to deal damage to foes more than providing support.
Roadhog- In light of the recent nerfs to D.Va, picking up a new 2nd tank seems like a good idea. Roadhog and Zarya have begun to see increased usage by myself as I search for a reliable 2nd tank to use alongside Reinhardt. Originally for Roadhog, his hook previously didn't know what walls were before it received changes. Hooking people has become slightly more difficult, but thankfully the spread on Roadhog's scrap gun decreased, so oneshots are somewhat easier to land. Then he got nerfed again in another patch, turning him into more of a liability than a threat. As such, I stopped using Roadhog completely.
Tracer- ...Tracer. I absolutely respect your sexuality, LGBT characters come few and few in video games. However, it doesn't change how absolutely twitchy you can be to play. I cannot get used to you for the life of me, love.
Widowmaker- One day maybe I will return to using this femme fatale. One day. For now, getting headshots will be a chore.
Doomfist- Unfortunately, he's not voiced by Terry Crews. But that doesn't let me discount the sheer potential that he has. Highly mobile, strong, and so satisfying to score kills with, he could turn out to be a fun hero to use on the side. Let us just wait and see when he comes out.
And yeah, that's about it! Hope you all enjoy my profile! If you want to chat with me about stuff, feel free to set up a PM and hit me up! I'm always wanting to meet new people despite my shyness. Happy smashing!
