Now son, listen here, ya heard, we ol country folk, we just don't know when to read or when to act, we just want it all right now. We comin to agreement on this land?You know guys, there's a guide that'll walk you through all the intricacies of learning the character so you can post video's here that aren't "I DON'T KNOW THIS GAEM HEEEEELP". Seriously. I helped write it. It's pretty ****ing good.
Hey guys, if possible I'd like these matches I posted earlier critiqued. Because of my lack of control with Mario, I contemplated switching to Roy, but he's even more frustrating, lol. So I'm going all Mario. I want to take him seriously and start placing higher with him but I wanna the opinion of my fellow Marios so I take him to the next level.Anyway, here's what I want critiqued. http://www.twitch.tv/expgamingil/b/511408812 (Skip to 7:31:39 to 7:43:35 )
This here is a crew battle at Smash101 that was recorded last night. I lasted about 3 rounds. So those are the matches I would like critiqued.
I really like Mario but my main issue with Mario (or probably the game in general) is that I lack a lot of control with him. Mario doesn't do things I want him to do at a given moment and I think you might notice this many times when I miss techs and kill opportunities. This hurts me A LOT.
I also feel that I focus too much on tech skill and not enough on playing intelligent. And when I try to reverse it, I run into the problem I stated before about lack of control. It's hard for me to find a happy medium. But I guess that'll come in due time. It's a bit frustrating, I feel I can enjoy the game more once I have full control over Mario so I execute what's in my mind.
Lastly, apparently I suck at DI. I don't know as much about as I thought I would. I don't like being stuck in combos and not being able to get out of them even when I'm DIing away from them. Maybe you guys can catch that in my matches and give me feedback.
Anyway, if you guys have any feedback, I'm open ears for criticism. I hope it isn't too inconvenient skipping to times listed above to find my matches, lol. There's not a lot I know about this game (especially match ups) and it bites me in the butt since I don't know how to fight them. Inexperience+lack of control= a lot of frustration xD.
I get an error when trying to load your match. Possible you can get it uploaded to youtube?Hey guys, if possible I'd like these matches I posted earlier critiqued.

Wow, you're right, looks like they must have deleted the recording from the archive. T_TI get an error when trying to load your match. Possible you can get it uploaded to youtube?
You should check the guide too. It's much more in depth than rudimentary and could really help.Charizard main picking up Mario here for the last month. I started playing PM seriously again at 3.0, unfortunately only recently getting into Melee. Anyways I'd appreciate any feedback on these tournament vids:
Winners Finals: Joker(Link) vs. Blank(Mario)
Grand Finals: Same as Winners
I think my main bad habit is falling into predictable dash attacks. I also need to recognize more fsmash and fair opportunities. Of course, I can always improve my movement.
I'll check out the other videos in this thread to hopefully gain something for my game. Thanks in advance!
From what I've seen he's really obvious with his approach game. If any of his opponents had started shield grabbing he would've melted. He also uses up his double jumps a bit too frequently, and spends too much time off the ground. Mario's air game is all right, but on the ground he's a fortress.Got some matches of Dr. Yogi's Mario.
If you guys don't mind, could you please critique him? He's still getting better with his Mario. The one thing I believe he needs to work on is his tech skill.
The link isn't workin for me. Anyone else?

I'd say you're friend doesn't need more investment in tech, he needs more investment in thought.
Edit: also, tell him that your not supposed to transition from comboing them, back into the neutral. If you land a hit, convert it into a kill. That doesn't mean it has to be a guaranteed combo to death every time, but if you let them go or knock them away, do it in a way that lets you chase and maintain pressure. He suffers from what a lot of early Mario mains suffer from which is thinking Mario excels at getting a bit of damage in then going back to neutral.
The guy your playing against is technically semi capable but doesn't think at all. You just need to work on everything really. Fundamentals, what you want to be doing with Mario in the neutral, combo game, fireballs, and not going on autopilot.I have a tournament in merely a few hours and may not get any points in time but what the hey?
can't say I'm *that* terribly good of a Mario (at this time, I was literally going by 100% instinct as I had absolutely no knowledge of Project M in the slightest), but I'm curious as to see what's most glaring.
Rolling is best used when you are under some real pressure ie. nair shine from spacies or lucas. You can also use the roll from the edge, doing this makes the game think you are still holding onto the edge longer than you actually are.Hmm. Any way you could explain the broad uses of those techniques? Rolling I know is usually a worse option than those, but I hate to use better options and not know their ultimate purposes.
I think the one time I got on there.. I beat him. I don't think Mario's dash atk beats it, if does, well, I'm shocked to say the least. imo It's best to just jump over and try to catch him as well as getting those nair>dsmash and fireballs in.Hi, I'm Dolphin. I just started playing Mario yesterday, because Wombat bodied me as Squirtle, and then told me that Mario's dash beats Squirtle's sideb. I really think I need to use fireballs/pills to aid my approaches more. I need to find approach mixups, and not use fair as aggressively as I do. Also more OoS options are nice, because all I ever do is bair. CC would be great.
I'm playing the Fireflower Mario.
If you haven't already, check the guide. It's a good place to start, as well as having some specific sections, and a lot on the cerebral aspects of playing smash.Hey guys, my name is Cod3kill, I've been playing Project M from about the time 3.0 came out. I picked up Mario about a month ago because I used to main Ganon and I wanted a character who has better match-ups and is more competitively viable in my opinion.
Here's me playing against Awestin. Disregard the first match on Rainbow Cruise lol.
I want to improve in any way possible.
Watched some of it. Ya did good. I saw some things and what, but, the main thing, just go for a nair when Lucas is trying to recover. It covers all da options.Finally got some worthy practice vs a Lucas. Video is sped up a little due to issues with the recorder.
