    Ruleset Changes V1.4 - UCF

    Okay, I've seen Hax's video on the arduino adapter. If that avoids any legal problems going forward and it solves the controller issue as well as UCF, great. I'm all for it. That said, we're trying to create a standard so it's best to keep the differences between UCF & Arduino adapter to a...

    Ruleset Changes V1.4 - UCF

    That sounds way to authoritarian for my tastes and naively assumes that everyone has the greater picture in mind rather than their own self-interests. If we followed your philosophy nobody would get paid out in the BEAST7 fiasco. But we *******, moaned, doubted everything they said and...

    Ruleset Changes V1.4 - UCF

    Okay, a few things. First of, there is an legitimate problem with controllers. There's no viable workaround that doesn't involve spending ungodly sums of money and getting lucky or spending a moderate amount of money and getting super lucky. To act as if the people complaining are somehow in...

    Ruleset Changes V1.4 - UCF

    Now I'm definitely confused. If you truly believe we're facing potential legal problems as a community and UCF is a risk to the longevity of our game, why would any of you ever entertain the idea of using it?

    Ruleset Changes V1.4 - UCF

    That's what I was thinking too and I concluded that this vote is nothing but symbolic. Amendment passes Certain major tournaments will not use UCF for whatever reason while almost every other tournament will use UCF because there's a demand for it. Amendment doesn't pass Certain major...

    Ruleset Changes V1.3

    Voted yes on all three. These are pretty straight forward.

    Ruleset Changes V1.2

    Let me rephrase my question. What exactly are we trying to fix with this rule? There's not exactly an epidemic of tournaments running late because of the timer being 8 minutes. If this amendment is just for more entertainment from a spectators point of view then I'm 100% against it. I...

    Ruleset Changes V1.2

    My question is simply.. Why? It seems entirely useless to me. Unless someone comes up with a strong argument to adopt the change, I don't see any reason to vote in favor. [edit] Actually, I have on reason to vote against. Floaties on Pokemon stadium & DL64. Two floaties going at it can take...

    Ruleset Changes V1.1

    As for the color blindness issue, is it possible for people to have conflicting preferences for their color blindness?

    Ruleset Changes V1.1

    There are opponents in between and there's a ton of downtime in between, both players have time to mentally reset and switch up their gameplans, even review their own sets in some cases. It's not at all the same as coaching mid match. Then we get the same problem I've pointed out 7 years ago...

    Ruleset Changes V1.1

    Being coached in between sets that aren't GF isn't a problem because you have no idea what their next opponents habits will be or what your coachee's weaknesses will be. So rather than tailor made advice on how to beat the person you'll be playing in the next 2 minutes, it's just general advice...

    Ruleset Changes V1.1

    Change the rule to "No coaching during matches.". I don't see any reason why third party interference somehow becomes acceptable just because there's more than one set. That's as irrelevant as the amount of games being played. It's still a single match between two competitors that signed up for...

    Social Stuff that ends in fair..... A Sheik Social Thread!

    Definitely in reality though.. :(

    Is wave dash necessary with Sheik?

    Virtually all characters benefit from wavelands and wavedashes. You can interrupt your sprints and change direction using platforms. It's necessary to escape shield pressure etc. Watch vids, see its uses.
