  • I'm thinking about leaving here sooner whether than later. I know some of the folks in the Newcomer Thread are inching for me to leave this place and that way when I'm gone, things can be sunshine and lollipops around here. I was just saying how fan rules wasn't a thing and Sakurai makes the rules and not us or myself. But yeah, I know nothing and I should shut up because the community knows more about the rules of the game than the developers themselves right? I'm not saying I know anything, but Sakurai makes the game so he decides who get's in or who doesn't, decides what will be put in the game, and what is preventing a character from getting in or not. But I'm getting tired of playing this speculation game when so many people aren't opening to listening to what others have to say on certain things.

    That's sounds like a pretty reasonable position since fan rules are always completely made up and constantly proven wrong.

    As someone who also ruffles people's feathers frequently I can tell you from experience that it really isn't worth worrying about being agreed with. People feel bad and alone when they are opposing popular opinion and that's totally understandable, but there is a sense of freedom when speaking the truth that can't really be replicated. If people are going to be assblasted over you giving them a reality check then there isn't much sense in letting them control your speech and mindset.

    Right. But most people will always agree with the crowd regardless if that one person or few is telling the truth or not.

    It depends. It might seem like you are being dogpiled on by several users and their like army, but if you were to look at the view count overall you would see that there are substantially more people viewing that thread that don't reveal their stance on things. What is commonly referred to as the silent majority. Whether or not they agree with you is up in the air though, but you might not be as alone as you perceive.

    Even so though, I'm more meaning that sometimes being right is better than being popular about it. Eventually people are going to have to acknowledge internally that they were wrong even if they won't publicly admit it. Perhaps not with everything, but you can only cling onto certain things like fan rules until they are objectively proven wrong and then they will have at least silently admit you were right.


    Of course that depends on the individual too. I'm the type to be more satisfied with speaking the truth than being popular, so it's easy for me to say this. But I still do share and understand the frustration when dealing with people who are like what you described.
    Sometimes, I feel like leaving Smashboards because some people think I'm a ******* for speaking about my opinions on Smash speculation.

    There was people at my job who discriminated against my Autism aka Aspergers and thought I was a two face ******* calling me things behind my back and claiming I was doing this and that when I wasn't. I was being discriminated and framed so I left that place. People there started acting ****** to me after this one girl harassed me and made up lies about me and my supervisor was close to her and protected her and they harassed me long after that one girl left. So I just left because **** that place.

    Maybe when the next character is announced, I'll leave this place because I'm starting to feel like I'm becoming more unwelcome here just because of my opinions on Smash speculation and me being part of the Fatman/Geno group protecting Fatman's reputation anytime some one says anything bad about him.

    I feel really bad that people have treated you that way. It disgusts me when people are discriminated because of a disability or condition that they can't control. And I feel bad that it's gotten so bad that you had to leave your job and that you're considering leaving Smashboards. I don't know what to do to help you, but you have my deepest sympathy and I hope someday things will get better.

    Pretty much what they said. I can't really say much more, but I do hope things get better.

    Thanks guys.
    It's time I just put faith into my own beliefs with Smash predictions whether than putting stock on the predictions of a lot of others. So here is my final and literal remaining Fighter's Pass 2 predictions:

    Chun-Li
    Lloyd or Yuri
    Elma
    So what has been the hardest DLC Spirit battle in the Spirit Boards for y'all thus far? For me it would have to be Hero's Comrades. I beat it with Ganondorf who is like my 3rd best main and I just had the Great Tiger Spirit equipped. It was pretty tough as it's a Legend class Spirit Stamina battle where you have to fight 7 characters one at a time with only one heart piece showing up on the stage half way through. 2 of them fight you together near the end and it's a pretty tough Spirit battle compared to most others in the game. I remember losing several times before I actually beated this.
    So who would win in a Death Battle K. Rool or Gruntilda? K. Rool has his krown, blunderbuss, jetpack, and his boxing gloves as well as his overwhelming strength and defensive belly armor while Gruntilda has her spells, broom, and Hag 1. I feel like the matchup could go either way, but I think K. Rool would probably win with a high def victory.
    ZoroCarlos

    I think K. Rool can take her. Guy survived beatings from a primate that punched the moon out of orbit (Also implied that K. Rool outclasses DK in raw strength), and Grunty couldn't even push a rock off her, so IMO Rool could one-shot Grunty if he gets too close. Gruntilda's only chance of victory would be to outrange him long enough, but Rool has enough tools in his arsenal to close the gap.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Yep. Plus if Banjo & Kazooie could beat Grunty, than so could DK or K. Rool.

    Kind of feels justified in this case considering the creator was making real cash off of Nintendo's IPs.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    You do have a point. But I was hearing that some of those creators were only making money on their streams which is still messed up. But Nintendo should leave fans alone who make mods or hacks and don't make any money off of it what so ever. But I agree they should step in when someone is making a buck off of their property.

    I think he meant the website's creator getting money off of ad revenue from people clicking on links and playing these games, not the fangames' creator.

    Because Flash 2 and Crusade, two fangames that are 100% nonprofit when it comes to the teams making those games, were on gamejolt and were also removed from it, but the games themselves weren't cut entirely, just cut from gamejolt.
    So check this out:


    Microsoft tried to buyout Nintendo 21 years ago and Nintendo's reaction was pretty much them laughing their ****** off for over a hour. One of their pitch ideas to Nintendo for wanting to buy them out was telling Nintendo that their hardware sucked and Sony's was better. Telling them they would be able to still make their games while Microsoft would make the hardware. Lmao! It's like that one user in the comment section down below in the video said "Imagine going on a date full of confidence, calling her ugly and expecting she'll fall for you. This is the business version of that."
    So they removed 250 DSiWare games from the 3DS Eshop including the original release of Risky's Revenge:


    The horror. If all games go digital in the future, than God help us all.
    I put a character poll in the Bandai-Namco thread:


    Let me know who else I'm missing from the poll.
    I just made The General Namco thread:

    : Mumbo's Hut of support is up and running!


    Come if you want to be a shaman's apprentice!
    So I just found out RogersBase's real name is Roger DiLuigi lol!


    He was literally born with the will of D. For those of you who don't know what the will of D is, it's a One Piece reference.
    I miss the Geno gang. I don't get to see many of you guys anymore because of most of you moving away from here to discord.
    So I played Quickplay and Elite Smash last night and I had a blast despite a few matches that lagged like hell. Got Min Min, Simon, and Bowser Jr. into Elite Smash so now I have 6 characters in Elite Smash others being Ridley, Ganondorf, and K. Rool.

    I met someone I had a fun time with, played with some other skillful players, got annoyed by Lucas spammers and this one Meta Knight spammer and the lag. I had a fun time last night. I plan to get Mewtwo into Elite Smash next.
    Anyone here read One Piece chapter 1000 this week? I read it on my birthday yesterday and it was amazing. Luffy is literally looking like the Pirate King now whether than just a boy chasing his dream.
    Strong Badam Strong Badam do you know how to get images and gifs working in the image box on Smashboards on my phone? The image box doesn't seem to work for me on mobile anytime I try to upload a image or gif on here with my phone.

    I'm having a problem on my phone trying to put the gif link address in the box as it keeps putting in the site address instead.

    I posted the direct link earlier. To find it on mobile (I guess it depends on your browser), long press on the image and select Open Image In New Tab. Clicking on it on that website does not open a direct link.


    I posted this from my phone.

    now it's working because I opened up a new tab. Thank you Strong Badam Strong Badam .
    So I started playing Ultimate in Quickplay again and I manged to get K. Rool back in Elite Smash as well as Ganondorf. Ridley I'm still trying to get back in Elite Smash. But man, it's annoying sometimes with the lag and all. Like, there was a few times where I did Side B with Ganondorf or Ridley but my controller with the joycon swifting bull**** or the lag response acted like I pressed a Down Special instead. It's a little annoying. I wish Nintendo would fix the damn joycons on the Switch controllers so we don't have that damn swift.
    I had a wonderful time and experience these past 2 years on the Geno thread and I want to thank you guys for all the good times

    It was a blast, but it seems like it's over for Geno speculation on Smashboards until Smash 6 or until he get's announced as a playable character. Well guys, we had one hell of a ride and one hell of a run. We almost mange to pass 4000 pages with ended up at 3744 pages before it was shut down. Keep in mind that the Ridley Smash 4 thread was 1952 pages which was the biggest character support thread on this site's history before we surpassed it. That's a incredible feat guys that I think will never be replicated. I think the Ultimate Geno thread will reign as the champion and number 1 for that record forever.

    Edit added text: I'm going to miss Fatman's theorycrafting. Offbi, Franco, and Malo's meme posting. QQS, Enigma, YsDisciple and Forsaken's optimistic posts. I'm going to miss it all.
    So I just got on Switch Online for the first time yesterday and picked up Quick Play on Smash online and it sucks. Ultimate's online is even worse than Smash 4's as I even remember the last game being real bad about lag online. I was able to get K. Rool and Ridley into Elite Smash but quickly lost that status as I was losing half of the matches I fought in. I also think it sucks too that once you get characters in Elite Smash you can only play as those characters when playing with others on Quick Play unlike Smash 4 where you could switch to a different character when you were playing with someone you don't know. I don't know if a Lan adapter will reduce the lag in any great amount, but for now unless it's with a friend I'm done with Ultimate online. The bad lagging is the reason I stopped playing Smash online for years as lag gives cheap wins and match ups for others.

    And you know it sucks I can't play at my full potential and best online because of the lag. Sometimes I just think I should just start playing at local Smash tournaments.

    That would be a nice option if tourneys could be safely open in this situation but they can't because Nintendo shows they have no empathy for their fandom, you're screwed in the only other option which is playing online.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I guess. But Houston nor Texas isn't quarantine yet so I think Houston tourneys are still a thing.
    Quick question: If I upload my Sephiroth Challenge match will it go to Youtube? Because I just see Facebook and Twitter on the checkboxes.
