    Nintendo Cyber Deals 11/23 - 12/02

    3 (now 4) comments and 0 views on this news thread. It would appear that SmashBoards is getting YouTube-itus now. lol Anyways, these deals are looking NICE! Might get Castle Crashers Remastered digitally, but I usually purchase physical copies of my games.

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    A few things to note about the list from my view: Apparently low tier doesn't exist? There is the bottom 3 he noted, but the lowest after that is low-mid tier. Afterwards, it is mid tier, but only 11 characters has passed since then. The game is solidly balanced, but the game isn't THAT...

    It sounds rough on paper, and for publicity's sake it is, but there aren't really that many Nintendo-sponsored events to work with in the first place, with that number being even lower now since most of those events got canceled thanks to COVID. There is a few big ones like Genesis and...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Something to note, is that the issue to begin with is that they are using non-official emulation in a Nintendo-sponsored tournament. So if the tournament is not sponsored by Nintendo, which is not many to begin with, then you are perfectly fine to run Slippi. Hopefully, Nintendo doesn't go...

    The Big House Online Canceled After Cease & Desist from Nintendo

    While this is immoral on paper, Nintendo is mainly targeted towards the grounds that a non-official emulation is being used in an official Nintendo event, and that alone. The event in itself is already fully-online, the risk from spreading COVID was already minimal in the first place. You are...

    The Big House Online Canceled After Cease & Desist from Nintendo

    Remember: as long as your event is not sponsored by Nintendo, then you are allowed to host online Melee tournaments involving Slippi. We have already hosted many tournaments involving Slippi with success. The reason why Nintendo decided to now deal action with it, is because we never had to...

    The Big House Online Canceled After Cease & Desist from Nintendo

    Speedrunning events usually use original hardware, especially if you are running the vanilla game. Most Twitch streams and speedrunning events also are usually not sponsored by Nintendo, which is how you can get away with playing/speedrunning Super Mario World romhacks without getting hunted...

    The Big House Online Canceled After Cease & Desist from Nintendo

    The issue with the whole "Slippi is an emulator, it should be allowed" argument, is that this entire situation draws a gray line between emulation and hacking/pirating. For starters, integrating online in a game that doesn't have online normally does lean heavily towards the direction of it...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    It would appear that no one learned their lesson from Project M's development cancelation (under the original team), or why no PM tournaments appeared under Nintendo sponsored events. The main thing everyone is arguing is that Slippi counts as "emulation" and not hacking/pirating. They are...

    It is possible that the absurdity of :metaknight: rubbed off on some players when approaching :ultmetaknight:. The character in Ultimate, believe or not, was considered a potent character at the very early meta. Some players who played him in the past, including back in SSB4, gave him the old...

    Except that MK hasn't really attained much of any significant results. You have a few splashes with Yei, BONK!, and Abadango back when he played the character, but the results obtained with the character isn't really that much. In the case of Sheik, she suffers from being very frail, but also...

    Something to note is that MkLeo only used :ultike: to reverse 6-0 Maister in grand finals. Up until that point, MkLeo was tearing it up with solo :ultbyleth:, beating 8BitMan:ultrob: 3-0, Aaron:ultdiddy::ultrob: 3-1, BestNess:ultness: 3-0, Sharp:ultjoker::ultzss: 3-2, Sparg0:ultcloud: 3-1, and...

    To be fair, Dabuz has always been pessimistic about Olimar as a character. He has always viewed SSB4 Olimar in a more negative light than everyone else. Even when Shuton was doing amazing stuff with the character during the game's second-half of its lifespan, Dabuz mostly credited it to...

    His rankings on :ultdk: and :ultkirby: isn't too far off to how they perform in Japan's metagame, especially the former. :ulticeclimbers: placement here is also not too far off from the Japan meta. They have best non-Big D results in the world, even though it is only merely respectable results...
