PP, the fact that your post was less professional didn't make it any less worth reading :)

It was a good post, and I think pretty much everyone enjoyed it.

I'm kinda surprised no one has noticed the mango color thing before you said it >_>
I don't think the color has that much significance, Mango was probably just messing with him =/



Also, weak / fast fall uair -> utlit (kinda like the one raynex did on little england at the big house) is great against fast fallers / sometimes floaties at that mid % where shine doesn't really link into anything, sometime sit even sets up for another uair -> utilt!

Dash dancing in place after a laser makes Falco 29028302x easier. I used to just laser -> approach or laser -> laser, which was probably everyone ***** my approach for 4 years (especially you amsah), but extra dash dance pp perfected makes Falco so much better. By dash dancing, you bait, stall, and set yourself to react to your shielding opponent all at once. I feel so dumb for not figuring this out on my own...

I didn't mean it necessarily had *all* that much [significance], but mango's clearly been through color phases and he does things a bit differently with them sometimes, no? You definitely rarely see mango pick red falco (never really green, either), more recently I've seen him stick to blue in more serious situations (though that used to be neutral for him) etc etc

Also, don't feel dumb =P Apparently nobody else figured it out either... just be cheap now that you have it and falco can seem 1353185510x better

every time I switch to another character for a bit 'cause I'm bored it feels like I have to start from square 1 with my falco when I come back to him. I pick up really neat and useful things every time, but I hate feeling like I move backwards in other ways.

That's not what I'm saying.

I'm saying before PP started doing it, I hardly remember ever seeing a Falco DDing very much between lasers. Sure, a little dashdancing here and there, but not to the refined extent of today.

Today a ton of Falcos DD inbetween lasers, but that's because PP popularized it.

After being in the same car to and from ROM and hearing a lot of this stuff first hand, it's aggravating to see people talk or be condescending towards Kevin for his attitude or his play this weekend.

Without saying more than it's my place to, Mango messes with Kevin in and out of game really badly. I sat next to them during GF's and I felt like Kevin's brain was about to explode whenever I looked at his face. This community's combined effort could not possibly put more pressure on Kevin as a player than Mango or Kevin himself. The color thing seems subtle or even made up from reading about it, but if you watched segments of all the matches (like numerous people in attendance did), the changes were noticeable in Mango's game play and they changed how the matches felt (to watch, and according to Kevin, to play).

Mango would absolutely tap Armada no questions asked. He just has to take it seriously.

I think I can beat Armada and Mango is much harder to figure out.

I didn't know what to say after I beat M2K. I literally just said something. Didn't mean to make the focus about planking sorry.


And sometimes I can't be about appealing to other people so much as bringing hype and bringing people to tournaments to keep this wonderful game to life as well as keep me from beating myself through being intimidated by my opponents before I played them. THAT was the point of the display of confidence. I did something wrong though....I'll figure out where it is and fix it.
I guess Genesis wasn´t serious enough or something =)

And after Apex you will need to take your words back man <3

We both laugh about how you think you legitimately deserve the belt if that's what you mean LOL.

I played so serious man in our set by the way, it should speak so many more volumes to how I clearly didn't want you to think you're the best when we play again aka I WAX DAT BUTT at Apex.

=D
