  • If you play one round then leave on quickplay, then I understand.
    If you play best of three, then awesome!

    But if you lose round one, win round two then dip you are my least favorite kind of person.

    You do know that most people who play quickplay don’t even consider this sort of thing, right?

    Yeah I'm just venting, I don't really have any ill will towards anyone.

    It's just that a lot of people at high GSP actually do try for Best of 3s, so it kind of annoys me when someone seems like they're going to but actually don't.
    Remember that the rioters in Washington today only represent a miniscule fraction of the US population. A dangerous fraction we should be taking seriously, but still a small one. Most people don't want this violence.
    And some people really seemed to think that all of our problems would just magically dissapear with 2021.

    I know for one that a good chunk of my current problems will stay for a good while until they may or may not dissappear.

    What does really matter in the end is to keep pushing and fighting to overcome your problems and not let anxiety and fear block you out.

    It is hard, but not giving up does really matter.

    Bad things are bound to happen no matter what, given the current situation of the world. However, there is at least a light at the end of the tunnel (the vaccine) that we can look forward to. 2021 isn't some genie that will grant the world happy wishes, however, things are at least starting to look up in some places. Just give it time.

    Yeah, we just need to work our way through to make things better.
    Sephiroth's Octoslash is one of those moves where it feels like a lot of people who throw it out recklessly should know better. No one should be throwing it out against shields when it can be punished out of shield by Ike F-Smash, especially in high GSP.

    It definitely reminds me of early Ultimate metagame where everyone thought Charizard was Flare Blitz: The Character for some reason. It tricks up people who aren't prepared but if you're up against someone who knows what to do...hoo boy you're in for a world of hurt.

    As an experienced Charizard main, I beseech all of you: Stop throwing out reckless Octoslashes. I can and will F-Smash you out of shield for it. Don't try me.
    Remember, Nintendo wasn't going after Melee specifically. They were going after emulation. At the end of the day they're in it for the money, and they see emulation as a gateway to piracy. Shutting down the Splatoon stream was an attempt at damage control that backfired horribly.

    I'm not defending Nintendo's actions. But it's good to have the perspective that this wasn't a raw act of malice against the fans as much as it was just a corporation doing what they saw as most profitable in the long term. It's not like Nintendo completely changed over night - they're just doing what they always would have done in this situation.

    It's also good not to personify corporations too much. They aren't individual people with wills of their own. They're organizations with different people in charge of making different decisions. Nintendo can't "love" or "hate" its fans, so dont' get attached to the notion it can.

    This is pretty much how I view it. With all due respect, there wasn't a ton of wisdom in an event that was officially acknowledged and sponsored by Nintendo in the past doing something that specifically steps on their toes: Nintendo's made it clear how they feel about emulation and things like Slippi, using them at the event wasn't the best use of judgement. I think something like Parsec would've fared far better.

    However, Nintendo didn't need to kill the whole event: They could have simply sent a C&D targeting the Melee content and leave Ultimate part of the event alone. Same deal with the Splatoon Stream: Cancelling the whole thing was an extreme move, they could've have just forcibly changed player names. All these things really highlight the problems with Nintendo's shoot first and ask questions never policy, and they really need to learn how to communicate better.

    Meanwhile...I think there needs to be improvement in the community as well. Many have reacted to these events in extremes, and while there's nothing wrong with voicing an opinion or giving criticism, there's been so much pointless venom and just outright vehement anger that really makes the community as a whole look immature on a surface level.
    The genius thing about a new Pokemon Snap is that Gamefreak could reuse assets from in for future Switch titles, therefore helping to address future complaints about graphics. I really hope this means they're listening to fan demand and are going to be playing their cards right going forward.
    Man, I remember that Star Wars Phineas and Ferb special. It was quite weird. We got Perry doing gangam style and everything.
    I'm not sure if having Perry the Platypus as my avatar makes my posts seem more serious or less. On one hand, he has such a serious expression. But on the other hand, he's a freaking cartoon platypus.
    These "Covid-19 was built in a lab" conspiracies are baseless and stupid. It's a virus. New ones mutate in nature all the time. This isn't the first time it's happened in human history and it certainly won't be the last.

    We don't need a cackling mad scientist to explain a completely natural phenomenon.
    Something about companies bringing up Covid-19 really rubs me the wrong way. Like they're waving it your face that some of them are profiting from a natural disaster.
    Why do I always lose to Wi-Fi flowchart Samuses? It's like I always know exactly what they're going to do next yet I still can't punish it for some reason. It's infuriating.
    Once the lockdown here is California passes, I should really start going to the locals in my area. There's a lot of high level players in my region and I'd love to have the privilege of getting my butt kicked by one of them in bracket.

    It's too bad I keep letting my darn social anxiety get in the way.

    First thing I'm doing after quarantine is going to a hot wings restaurant near my college and ordering unlimited wings to celebrate "I SURVIVED NCOV"

    I think I would quite enjoy playing against good players again. But I would be worried about getting humiliated. Years ago I went into this one place and played the games where everyone fought each other to see who was worthy of the real bracket. I of course got three stocked by everyone and initially thought it was fine. That's when I fought another Sonic main and got wrecked so hard that id you placed a barrier I couldn't get back through to the stage on the top and the sides I wouldn't have noticed it because I wouldn't have gotten nowhere near them.
    Now I only play with AI and my brother with single joysticks so I'd probably still get floored, just with less self-destructs.
    I feel like the coronavirus is going to be a generation defining event. Even when a vaccine is finished and it'll still have a long lasting effect on the economy, politics and modern day culture.

    I can't help but shake the feeling that we're seeing history being made right now.
    Whenever I'm playing at my best, it feels like the entire game is moving at a slower pace. I'm calmer, I'm not pressing buttons as frantically and I'm able to think my every move through and make clearer observations about my opponent's patterns and strategies.

    If I could get myself into this mindset every time I played, I think I'd improve as a player pretty quickly. If only I knew how. Taking care of some real-life stressers might be a good start.
    Sad to see you go, but if you’re sure it’s right then I won’t stop you.

    I also physically can’t stop you, but that’s beyond the point.

    Until next time, partner.

    To tell the truth, I may have never even joined the thread in the first place if it weren't for people like you. You're the kind of person that does make fandom fun.

    I'm not leaving the website altogether, I'm just going to be avoiding the Social Thread.

    So apparently you have a problem with Medieval Eugenics Simulator for the Nintendo 3DS system?
