  • Practicing every ****ing day and then missing every ****ing input. It's ****ing great. Amazing game.
    How do people keep playing this ****, maybe it's precisely because Ultimate is literally built for the majority.

    When I used Bowser in Brawl and Smash 4 (before the Uthrow patch), he actually required skill to use.

    I see a lot of players getting away with doing like 3 moves the entire time, like Side B, Up B and Firebreath. These players would be far easier to deal with in any other game, but Ultimate rewards them for just being bad. I'm not saying you'll win tournaments like this, but it definitely rewards you for being dumb.

    Literally every character has two or three moves together can “get away with”, this is a universal thing in Ultimate. Characters gots good moves.

    And now that I do think about it, this happens to be one of those thoughts that holds me back from growing. It's a toxic mindset I have, and it's the thing I unconsciously hold on to, which in a way just ends up reaffirming your belief.
    I had a really good time playing offline today. One of the last sessions prior, I did really bad (with Kazuya, at least), and it really unmotivated me how practice wasn't paying off. Today was the polar opposite of that, and I had a good time even when I did lose.
    So you're telling me I can parry and tech stagespikes consistently but I literally can't tech a single floor tech.
    Anyone else find it awkward to FSmash with Kazuya during the dashes? He keeps doing the reflector dash attack. You have to reset the stick to neutral before doing it, but the timing is stricter than other characters.
    Doc Monocle is a funny guy.
    If you have trouble with the EWGF and you still happen to do Down Ftilt or things like DSmash, it has to do that you're not doing the full quarter circle motion. I used to have that issue a lot, a few days ago. I started focusing on doing the whole motion, and the rest comes more naturally, such as the timing. The timing of pressing the A button is basically doing it right after you start moving the stick, at least for me (maybe Joycons have to do with it).
    Still struggle to consistently do EGWF, even after a week. Sometimes I feel like I got it, but then I just find a new way to misinput it, or do one and then miss the other. I don't know after how much practice starts becoming less effective.

    And another thing, I realise rehearsed combos were never my thing.

    To that effect, yes. For me it is usually with words. I say something, and it lingers for a long time. It is not in an enjoyable way though, as I am usually bothered trying to figure out what negative things it could mean to someone else. I have never been adept at giving myself the listener's ears.

    I interpreted what you said as meaning you will watch a video several times in a short period. In a similar way, my words 'replay' themselves repeatedly in my head, and I further added why it is disturbing to me. If it seemed disconnected, I apologize, for as I essentially said, I am never sure how much clarification I should give the listener to avoid misunderstandings, and so sometimes err on the 'safe side' by adding more words; more information than may be necessary.
    I never understood this idea that it's somehow people who are good at something are entitled to being an asshole. That's literally just you allowing them because of some sort of "authority" that you consent to.

    Confidence isn't the same as arrogance, and people get those two mixed up a lot.
    when they say they're on a diet and they literally order two bk combos on the same timeframe
    I feel like newcomers have an advantage in Ultimate, and moreso than any other game before it. As someone who's played competitive for almost 10 years, I feel like everything I learned is almost meaningless. Guys that have started with this game already do better, and this very mindset is part of what holds me back.

    Then again, how can you not be bitter or resentful knowing that it didn't mean much? "experience" is overrated.

    I do think newcomers have an advantage but its because of how much more different this game is than other iterations, Veterans had to unlearn and then learn this game newcomers just needed to learn the game.

    Yes, that's exactly it. I still feel like I'm not even really playing Ultimate, like I never fully adjusted, even after over two years in. I used to beat my friend in the previous games (and a lot of other people), but I started getting behind since.
    I realise I can practice in Training Mode, by myself, for hours in a single day. And the most interesting part of this, is that I rarely ever actually get bored of it. And sometimes I realised somewhat recently, I really have 0 ego or sense of anxiety or frustration in doing so, unlike playing something like online.

    I've been practicing Kazuya for almost a week, and I didn't know anything. But after hours of just grinding over and over, even when it was physically demanding (my grip hurts if I go for like a whole hour), I really see I can overcome it.

    This is the best kind of mindset anyone should have when trying to improve, though I can't say I really learned to do against actual players.
    I find it ironic that the same people that think wifi Zelda is the best and "optimal" playstyle for her are later the same ones that say she only works online, that she's barely a Mid tier and also the same ones that don't bother learning anything new to improve her game.

    Day 1 of playing Kazuya against an actual person:

    couldn't do a single thing I practiced for. My mind was too busy trying to process the actual match.
    Once again, my hand is ****ed.
    I wish Kazuya could at least waveland. In spite of that, I'm getting used to his mobility.

    Funny enough, the scariest match is Kazuya vs. Kazuya.
    Kazuya's strength is his strong punishes. And his weakness is his endlag leaving him open to punishment.
    I'm the king of my own land.
    Facing tempests of dust, I'll fight until the end.
    Creatures of my dreams raise up and dance with me!
    Now and forever, I'm your king!
    Kazuya combos killing me.

    In a way, this isn't a bad thing if it encourages you to work hard and get a lot of reward from it. But at the same time, he's also really weird and uintuitive to just figure out, and it's one hell of a mathematical equation.
    Still can't do EGWF.

    Same. I hear people saying to treat it like a smash attack input but like, I'm pretty sure smash attacks are more forgiving than 2 frames.

    A Smash-like input gives you the Dragon Uppercut, which I can do a lot easier... I can get most of the other inputs, but for some reason EGWF is ridiculously hard.
    It's so ****ing **** when you invest into something you genuinely like, out of the very view interests you really have, and it only slaps you in the face time and time and again. Your pour your heart and soul into it, and hardly gives you anything in return.
    I don't understand how people can play and do well in the ****ing mess that is Smash Ultimate. I've played Smash for 10 years, and Ultimate is just a kick in the balls. It's no wonder all these new people do better (especially these 12-13 year old "prodigies". It's dumbed down so everyone else can play "competitively".

    A ****ing insult for anyone who has worked hard for years just to get stuck at mid level.

    If somewhere in the future someone made an Ultimate patch to fix all the crap (input delay, buffer systems, dumb things in general), it'd easily be the best competitive Smash. But as it is, I'm tired of holding on to the "sometimes it's good".
