I'm the best, Mango/Shiz/PC(he's only a little rusty now) are some other notable ones. Vidjo's really good in teams still at Georgia, Chu is getting rusty over time, Cactuar is one of the best on EC easily right now, he improved significantly in this past year.
LOL when I read this post, I was thinking "Again? Jeeze, stop trying to be funny by sarcastically saying you're the best, guys." I then shifted my eyes to the left and realized it was M2k that said it, and then I realized that my thoughts were heresy against Mew2king and wouldn't go unpunished. I closed my window, realizing that I was helpless, as M2k can use his neutral B to break it down with ease. I dropped to the floor, filled with hopelessness and despair..... wondering... my time is limited.... when will it all en-

</epic monologue>

Story aside, I heard SoCal's got a good Melee community going right now (lucky sons of *****es). I'm hoping that AZ's scene will return (FORWARD QUIT NOOOO) and that Taj will play again or something. The best on the West right now are probably like, Mango, Zhu.... erm... Taj is super rusty (and WAS rusty in the latter half of 07 >__>), maybe some people in Washington? I'm not sure, I live in the Southwest. AZ's scene is looking VERY bleak right now. Like, if it wanted to be even touched in the future Melee community, like, Taj or Sean would have to play again, and this one dude Light would have to also step it the **** up.

Mango's still really, really good. You don't know if you're the best. Especially judging from anything recent of yours and playing Mango less than a week ago. Ka-Master is still really really ****ing good, though none of you knew how good he was in the first place.

I knew(know) how good ka-master is, and Eggz too. Does Ka still play Melee?

Edit:

Get *****? You mean what I said about Mango?
Lol sorry zhu, im sure that seemed random, but theres an argument me and my friends have about who's the better falco between you, eggm, shiz and Mango, and i, for no real reason choose the Mango side of the argument. Thats +1 point for me, take THAT Nick, Sean and Jeorgon.

Trust me, you have no idea how good Ka-Master is.

Oh yeah I forgot about Ka. If it helps, I would've put Ka / DJ on my list but I don't really know if they still play or not =/

I kinda have an idea of how good Ka is, unless he got a ton better since UCLA. It's always possible.

As of now, I've only played Mango once, and I beat him 3-2 in Falco dittos (yay friendlies). I played Eggm for like an hour and we were roughly the same level.

But times have changed and I hear that Mango rapes everyone in Socal and just beat SilentWolf 3-1 and 3-0 in Fox dittos and Eggm basically only loses to M2K in EC. Eggm has a better record, but I think Mango would be able to beat Eggm simply because Mango is ****ing smart as hell. The only thing I'm sure of is that they're both better than me =(

Zhu, i think the problem here is that your forgetting that Matt.Zeb is the best falco ever.

Eggm and mango are both extremely ****, but we musn't forget Shiz and his amazing play at FAST 1, giving even M2K more than just a little trouble. Shiz runs right up there with the best in terms of technical skill and his laser precision is amazing. That said, Matt.Zeb is obviously the best.

There are also quite a few good players in Europe, especially Amsah, Armada and Adam

(Conclusion : if you want to be a good Melee player in Europe, you better have many a in your nickname =p)

Yeah I was about say...

For WC, I'd say SS, Falcomist, Lucky, MikeHAZE, SilentWolf, Eggz, Lunin, Tang, and of course, Mango. Mango almost exclusively plays Falco / Fox and his Falco / Fox are probably the best on the WC... it's not fair =(
u forget so many ppl zhu!
mexican is still really active and plays alot at my house.

oh yea dark mike still plays alot too but he doesnt own a cube so he only plays at my house (frequently)

home made waffles plays still

phil is also really good

i know im forgetting alot of people from the modesto area... i think all of the sac smashers moved to bawl too.

nd uhm i still play!
