    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Long post incoming, because Double Down is... I'll let the reddit post speak for itself. I did not have "Riddles, Dabuz and Chag getting sent to Loser's in Pools" on my Double Down bingo card.

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    e-Caribana (First Smash major / category 4 in 🇨🇭 , held at one of Switzerland's most notable concerts) just wrapped up. 32-man invitational - Maister and Atelier were also invited but they couldn't attend: 1st: MKLeo :ultcorrinf: :ultbyleth: 2nd: QuiK :ultsamus: (Sidenote: Was extremely close...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    To add on what Hydreigonfan01 said: Axiom XL (25th at Collision & Pound + regional results), Brr (while his best major placements is 33rd at Glitch Infinite, he has regional results) and Greil (French, 13th at KRBanger 2 + regional results) also contribute points on their own. Then there are a...

    As for Kazuya: The big problem with evaluating him is that it's very easy to latch onto something ("he's great / mediocre because he's got tools for everything / is too complicated") but one side of the coin does not exclude the other here. Sure he has issues with platform camping due to his...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Wanted: St. Valentin Edition results (303 entrants): Notes: Gluttony got 17th after losing to Mr. E and Mezcaul, which is a bit weird. He looked entirely on form just yesterday and won Dojo 16, so maybe it was fatigue or something along those lines? Sisqui did get 3rd after getting 2nd at...

    Critique Super Smash Bros.

    I'd argue it's been so since the very start. Not just with the character designs favoring what's current at the time (very visible with Mario and Link), but also since both the Japanese and American ad campaigns promised "star studded slamfest!" as the main draw. As for what to critique, I've...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    (Oh jeez I've written practically an essay. Spoilering parts of this for easier readability.) Think his main worry is that it would be difficult for most of the players (i.e. those not in the higher levels) to deal with. This was exemplified by :ultkrool: , which Sakurai noted (emphasis...

    In other news: And here's Zhuge's thread on the Switch's sales update (total 103.54 million) in general. Numbers worth pointing out include the regional totals: Japan: 24.36m Americas: 40.12m Europe: 26.98m Other: 12.09m

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    With the obligatory caveat that eTossed later realized a mistake: Belgium, Bulgaria and South Korea should be Sonic. Overall, while this can feel a bit surface level it is still some really interesting data not least since it shows a mixture of expected and unexpected results through the...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    The main problem I can think of with the Universal Counter is that a lot of people rely heavily on counters - to the point it's a crutch (Spectate mode is a good place to find these). So making it universal without additional finetuning would result in a lot more panic countering and what not...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    As recently as October most pros placed Pika top ten-ish if not best in the game - with a better average than Aegis (I have not encountered a newer excel spreadsheet that compiles tierlists). Worth noting that the Pika critique had been ongoing here for a while by that point IIRC, and I remember...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Also the fact that CS GO and Dota 2 - Valve's own games - are consistently the #1 and #2 on Steam day in and day out by a mile; and they have been very solid money makers for Valve for the past 10 years. PUBG is the only game I know of that has gotten consistently close, not to mention...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    It's always going to be YMMV territory - I grew up with Melee so of course I have a soft spot for the animations and sound design - but to offer my PoV: Speed is part of it - some players and spectators (incl. me) do like to at least watch the fast pace it thrives on, very much akin to a...
