    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    With MVD seeming to run through multiple mid and high level Greninja players one after another, I've tried to make an effort to understand what is happening and why everything is going so wrong when it comes to this MU. There's a lot of surface level problems such as Greninja Mains trying to...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Speaking of Zelda (Palutena too go figure), I just watched a recently close set on stream at GOML 2019 between Raykushi and Gen that I think showcased a lot of interesting uses of her tools (All throughout, but particularly in Game 3). While I'm too tired to analyze it on any deeper level, what...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    I actually made a whole tweet thread talking about Mega Man in the new patch. Considering the fact that Yeti and Morpheus both won their stacked locals immediately after in the new patch as if nothing changed, I'm inclined to agree with the nerf not being nearly as detrimental as most seem to...

    I knew it was only a matter of time before Stroder's Greninja MU Chart was posted here so let me address a few of my thoughts on it... First, Stroder does believe Greninja loses very few MUs if any as indicated by his chart, but he outlined these below as the most likely candidates for slight...

    Uh...I never implied any of this other than the fact I think its cool to see more people find interest in the character LOL I fully understand that the character is hard to master and has unintuitive workarounds to problems compared to other Top Tiers and I've already come to terms with the...

    I do remember that tweet, but the next week after that I've also seen him playing a lot of Greninja on stream as well funny enough. Not to mention, after Stroder beat Tweek at Nimbus, I saw Leo tweet this out: Does this mean what I think it means? I sure hope so. Having a super top level...

    Official Frostbite 2019 Thread

    Frozen mains Palutena. From what I saw on Twitter, Game 3 was a last hit last stock situation. He had KingArc (notable Mega in NY) give him some practice sets before they fought. Guess it ended up being enough to help him clutch out the W. So unfortunate it wasn't streamed however. Just looking...

    Good to see there are at least some notable players not completely overlooking him lol

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    This was after his decision to drop out of Melee Singles at Genesis 6. Scheduling issues among Top 64 and him questioning if he was rusty at Melee caused him to drop out even though he wished he could have played. I think he fully intends to play both games in the foreseeable future; he...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    After rooting for Yeti to place well at Genesis 6 all weekend knowing just how skilled as a player he is and seeing him almost obtain the ultimate goal of making Top 8 out of 2000+ entrants, I'm glad I got to see his run. The controversy/hate surrounding Leaf Shield and even surrounding Yeti...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    While we're on the topic, speaking of Bayonetta, really unfortunate to see just how badly the whole game transition controversy surrounding both the character and top players in general is starting to affect people like Tamim. He lost a lot earlier than expected/he would've hoped at Genesis 6...

    Shadow Sneak Uses Discussion

    As I am one of two main contributors to the Greninja Singles Playlist within the Greninja Discord, I see a lot of sets. In regards to which players use Shadow Sneak the most in tournament play? Easily Venia and Akashic. In regards to Frame Data, the move has to be held a minimum of 5 Frames...

    Good timing with that specific twitch clip executed by Light. Hydrant seems to have some weird interactions in this game as shown by two clips I saw of Dekillsage explaining it recently. He goes further into it in the comments as well:

    bc1910 is right about Greninja's tech chase game here. Jab can whiff and if you are ready, you can still cover options. It's not as easy to get around as you'd think. Somé has showcased stuff like this in the past on Twitter and I've seen Venia himself do quite similar things in regards to...

    Here's the full results for anyone who wasn't able to catch Umebura SP 2: Speaking of Lea and Greninja in particular though, nice to see him translate his Online Ladder dominance smoothly into offline play. Top 8 at this tournament with all these notable player threats running around...
