Placed 9th/53 at this tournament. I managed to beat A1, the best Robin in our region (and one of the best Robins in Canada according to Abbey). Considering the overall difficulty and the amount of MU experience my region has, I think this is a decent result worth consideration.

Finished tied for 7th out of 54 entrants on 12/21/16. Was also fairly hammered in the midst of the whole thing and just barely missed the money.

  • Localmanmatty: Match was on stream but the event wasnt uploaded. Played his Toon Link and went 3 games.
  • Bloodedge the hedgehog: Beat Cloud in 2 games
  • Magala: Won in 2 games, cant remember who he used D:
  • G-Rain: Also streamed, lost to his Lucas in 2 games. Chalk it up to inexperience, bad stage choice or just drinking/playing bad or whatever. Yet somehow SDA beat him at a Xeno, which makes me hella mad...
  • Zaxel: Bowser things happened. Went to game 3 and I gambled on a reverse Ganoncide out of desperation.
  • Dugan: LOLDUGANSLAPPEDMY****

Would like the pleasure of being removed from the tier list since I quit Sm4sh. Thanks in advance.

3. 2-1 win, Coby (Can't remember)
4. 2-1 win, Booda (Little Mac and and someone else)

This was a bracket for the first local I went to; it was a 17-man tourney and I got 7th place with Ganon. Idk how good that is, but it feels pretty good

My local scene has finally posted the vods of one recent tournament, there you go:
I believe I lost my sets due to MU inexperience, and also some misimputs. But in geral I player well, I feel. Got 2nd here.
Bracket: http://challonge.com/RCS_V

Vods:
https://youtu.be/qapIj3QmuhY
https://youtu.be/ApysQopb96A
https://youtu.be/obtG0jesbPc

And in a more recent tournament, I was able to send Nathan (#1 of my state, considered by some people as the best Ryu in Brazil) to the losers bracket. Unfortunately our set (and others that were recorded) wasn't uploaded to YT yet, so here's the bracket (that's all I have atm, unfortunately. Will post the vods asap): http://challonge.com/fcssingles
(This link says that he 2-0'ed me, but it's the opposite, lol)
Got 3rd in this one.

Pretty happy, best placing so far, and only lost to the second seed. Played a little nervously, but that means I can do better.

Not My favorite mu but still did pretty well here Vs. Lavlis (Sonic) @Counterpick30. (feb 10 , 2017) (ft. Vaataji and Adom rooting for me <3 XD)
(Got 13th out of 37) (commentaries: badr and istudying)
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/121096908?t=2410s (@40:00)


Never forget:


Vs. Adom
We both destroyed eachother during our wifi session last week.
Here's one of the matches. Me 3 stocking Adom.


Someone on the Ganon discord asked me to show this French streamer my Ganondorf. I did 2 b03's and won both.
2 nice kills in 30 sec in this highlight:


Old stuff:


Took a game off Badr (best Bayo from the Netherlands and 8th on Dutch PR) @NHSmash3 ft. Larry Lurr, Mr.R etc.

Other. decent tournament placings:

Note that The Netherlands has some of the best players in Europe and it's a also very small country. Because of this, even small local tournaments get stacked pretty often.

Figure I might aswell post it here. Started competing again in the last month after a 9+ month hiatus.

Went to the geek 4 monthly, bracket pools. Won game 1 vs an OOR yoshi and lost to Supergirlkels and an OOR Rob. 47th/72. Note that this same rob got out of pools at LAN ETS as well.
https://smash.gg/tournament/super-s...ingles/standings?per_page=25&filter={}&page=3

Lan ets this weekend.
Got 7th/12 in doubles. Only lost to two double PR players.
Got 25th/52 in singles: went 4th in my pool, 3-3. Lost to Blacktwins, Dr Mambo ( a sonic) and a Charizard (who also got out of pools last ETS)
https://smash.gg/tournament/lanets-2017-feat-rb-tsm-leffen/events/wii-u-singles/brackets/114495

Haven't had time to upload vods but I did send you a replay from a ranked anthers match at some point.

I think at least it shows I'm not a complete FG scrub right?

Friendly reminder that I'm the only one allowed to joke about the unscrupulous ways adom reached S-tier, which clearly does not stand for "Suck" or "Semite".

The full set has been uploaded to yt.


I may have a weird whiffing playstyle but I definitely know what i'm doing.I still have alot of problems on getting used to the different feeling when playing on other monitor setups than when playing at my own setup at home. This often results in poorly timed aerials, missing autocancels and things like that.

But im still pretty satisfied with how I played in this set.

Changes for most recent update:
*Ray_Kalm #1 (debatable), Gungnir moved down due to inactivity
*Makzu and Dr. Flame added to B
*Omegaraider moved upwards in C, still isn't good enough at spacing aerials to make B
*Vaataji moved to inactive on request
*Speclar given a special mention because he was asking for it.

tldr Reasons for not changing certain placings:

Kowalski: Goes for many risky and impractical things that end up not working, in spite of solid technical skill. Bad MU knowledge in a nutshell
Shin Gototantenks: Suboptimal followups that sacrifice stage control or leave him in vulnerable position, still very limited aerial spacing

Next update is 2 months from now

Maybe the inactives should be cleared out from the tier list next update? There's a good amount of them.

Sorry for the double post, but I'm sure it's permissible in this case?

As per Tsuji's request, I'm going to let you know he placed 17th/103 at the CSB finale. It was technically a weekly, though an extremely large one at that. He notably beat JW, the best Greninja in Ontario and arguably second best in Canada. His sets were:
  • 2-0 over TINA (Rosalina and Luma), Winners, R1
  • 2-1 over JW (Greninja), Winners, R2
  • 2-0 over Awesomecake (Peach), Winners, R3
  • 0-2 vs. Meekspeedy (Sonic), Winners, R4
  • 0-2 vs. Notes (Villager), Losers, R6
Overall the highlight was his victory over JW, which unfortunately wasn't streamed (none of his sets were, to my knowledge). This is a fairly notable placement despite the competition not being quite as high as some tournaments of its size -- though by no means was it an easy tournament.

(On a side note, I also attended this but made quite a few critical errors, which was in part due to nervousness and being in a small space with far too many people, so I wouldn't necessarily take my placement as indicative of the level of competition.)

Got third on my states PR this season.

http://challonge.com/wiiuseagulls

My most notable tournament placing this season. Got 9th out of 40. Notables were MDVA PR like WaDi, Jebb, Promaelia, etc. Upset a few people relative to my seed. Took out crits 2-0, who made it out of pools at Pound, and took a game off Z8, who got 2nd or 3rd at the Xanadu Arcadian this past year.

http://challonge.com/sjbmal8m

Got 2nd at this weekly out of 8. It was small, but I notably beat Jae in winners 2-1, who won that same Xanadu Arcadian and is good enough to be mdva PR if he attended more events. Grands went to game 10 between us, almost won the first set but he clutched it out.

http://jts.challonge.com/JTS2017_16P

Got 5th out of 29 at JTS with a bad seed again. Took out the 6 seed, a good DK. Also took a game off dingus joe. Ended up losing to him and logic. Also placed 4th in doubles out of 14 teams with my partner. Vods are linked at the bottom.

Doubles

https://smash.gg/tournament/hope-r-...cymist-tension/events/wii-u-singles/standings

Placed 13th out of 43 at this Pitt regional. Notables were Icymist, Seagull Joe, Tension, and just about all of the Pittsburgh PR. Didn't place phenomally, but upset Perkinips, a PRed Mario/Bowser.

https://smash.gg/tournament/pitt-sm...sh-formal/events/wii-u-singles/brackets/90935

Another Pitt regional, with a bunch of their PR in attendance. Placed 9th out of 41. Notably took a game off of Volt, their #2 I think, and beat Lvl 10, a formerly PRed Luigi (taken off for inactivity.) Went to game 3 with Immortal, a good Bowser who is now PRed if I recall correctly.

http://jts.challonge.com/JTS2017_17

Placed 7th out of 37 at this JTS. Took Coldweather to game 3, had game 2 won but attacked just a tad bit too early on a counter read. Lost to Dingus Joe in losers after bringing game 3 all the way back. VODs linked below.

Didn't place well, but I took a game off Pink Fresh #2 in MDVA, #24 PGR (he was playing Link, but he considers himself good at the character, so) actually could have 2-0ed him, had a two stock lead on him game 1 with only 40% on my first stock while he was at kill percent, but he clutched it out. The best set I've had with a notable player, unfortunately it wasn't recorded.

http://challonge.com/wiiumingle

Again, didn't place well, but took a game off of Xerom #11 in MDVA, a Ness player. Two stocked him with 30% on my first stock on the game I won. Getting closer to taking sets off PR players, just have to work on my game 3 mentality.

http://vgbootcamp.challonge.com/Xanadu200Smash4

Xanadu 200. Got 25th out of 87, tied with Bloodynite, another MDVA Ganon. Beat Guy, a former PR Duck Hunt and took F.O.E. a current PR greninja to game three last stock last hit.

http://dcesportslans.challonge.com/fantasticsmash48/standings

13th out of 38. Played okay. Lost to Zephyr, a cloud, and Archy, a sheik. Beat Darkflame, a Falcon
Me vs. Zephyr
https://youtu.be/fTLBm2bCX_k

http://challonge.com/TheCaveWiiusingles0504

9th out of 35. Beat one of my bracket demons, Nazo, a Sonic. Also got 4th in doubles out of 12 teams.

http://challonge.com/users/blasiancoolio

Have yet to report this, but I also win my local just about every week. Only weeks I didn't win were ones I weren't there, and one where I lost to a local Ryu. Beat him another week though. Numbers range from 7-12 usually.

http://jts.challonge.com/JTS2017_18

1st out of 26. Beat Coldweatherr, best marth in MDVA after he reset the bracket on me. Also beat a sonic, and a rosa. Vods are linked below.

One particular weekly that I didn't win, but Squidboy (PR #17 in New Jersey, MK player) showed. Went 3-1 against him in WF and 3-2 against him in GF, with minimal matchup experience. He should show frequently during the summer, so we will likely have more showdowns.

This is Tsuji.

Clarification: JW (Greninja) just made #7 on the region's PR = PR win?

Also, have 1 game on Chris Fisch and Blacktwins this season/month.

I'd like to think I'm around C tier or so, possibly bottom B? ...but I'm probably giving myself too much credit.

I have a document full of results, PR wins and vods to back up why I think I COULD be up there. I don't think my personal rating would fit with other Ganons, I just made an assumption of where I might be... but I'm usually wrong about this kind of stuff. :p I'd love to be on this in general, even if it results to being in D tier. It'd give me just another reason to work harder!
