Hey guys, I figured that since I've got an account on here, I should probably start actually interacting with other Samus players to improve my skill. I've been playing at tourneys since around late January, and I main Samus in melee as well. I'd really appreciate any advice on how to improve in whatever field it is that I need improving on the most. Because of my lack of posts, I can''t post a full link, but here's my set with ORLY from this past Wednesday: watch?v=0AGZVSKdsxo
As it stands right now, I know a few of my really bad habits. The first one is the biggest, and that is rolling in from the ledge whenever I start to feel nervous. Also, the charge shots off stage while recovering are not as prevalent in my gameplay as game one of the set I posted would suggest. Any and all help is appreciated, and I really hope I can start doing my part to help you guys improve as well.
EDIT: To clarify, I might come across like a ****head in this set with Chris. Firstly, I'm kind of a ****head. Secondly, I have more fun playing with people like ORLY because I can be silly and ****-talky.
you know what Ccing is right? you can CC his shine... and pretty much every move he throws out, its a jank match up, but you were throwing way too much **** out preemptively and he was way too agro which permitted that play style to work... kind of... you can roll under most of his approaches including lasers if they arent at ground level, but really idk what was going through your mind in a number of instances, my best guess were going for reads that just werent successful, but you shouldnt commit that much to an attack when you dont have a grasp of your opponents patterns yet... in short, think more, react less, you are playing a slow character with good zoning tools with medium priority
Hey guys, I just wanted to get some feedback on my play against Rat from last week. We've got a lot of Wolf players around Chicago, but I rarely get a chance to play any of them in a tournament environment, especially the high caliber ones, so there's definitely evidence of my inexperience with the MU.
Outside of SDIing through (behind Wolf) nair and needing to missile and zair through lasers, what can I improve on? I also got relatively impatient in game two, as is shown through my stubbornness to just reset the neutral, opting to just try and come down with dairs instead.
Pretty much, the things I've noticed that need work are my patience and my punish game. I appreciate whatever advice you have to offer in regard to improving those aspects of my game, as well as any insights on what else needs improvement.
I would do B-turnaround/B-reverse charge cancels off stage to face the stage when recovering, unless you really want the b-air range, it's generally best to have your tether available, and it takes next to no time to turn around. Lowriders are an excellent ledge mix-up, especially the way he was just sitting right next to ledge. You missed a couple opportunities to cancel tether into screw attack for a hit/anti-edgeguard off stage. Other than that, just work on spacing and fluid movement. Solid play overall.Here's my set with Plasma from this past Saturday. He's a phenomenal Lucas and I was pretty nervous about playing him 2nd round.
I noticed that my UpB's were excessive and a few were timed poorly, and I also didn't mix up from the ledge enough. Outside of that, and some technical flubs like the SWD offstage game one and some other things, I can't find much that I messed up on.
As always, I appreciate all of your minds and eyes because they often times can catch what I'm missing. You've all helped me improve greatly over a short amount of time, and I don't plan on stagnating for quite a while.
saving for viewing later, thanks guys.So I decided to put this playlist together. This is pretty much any Project M Samus gameplay I thought was worth watching and may be learning from. Some of it may be good some of it may be bad but I think pretty much any gameplay that you can watch and reflect upon is good to watch. I games are in no particular order just how I found them put I did put the more tutorial like videos at the top. Enjoy and I will be adding to this more as more stuff ends up in my sub box Also shoutouts to Pooch, Kaysick, and Esam since they make up most of this list thanks for the great gameplay guys.
something cool you can do, while plugging in your controller, hold your start button down, so you literally can't pause during a match, (its the same thing as like holding down a shoulder button when plugging in your controller and being unable to shield)dat pause sportsmanship though
Yeah, not 100% on the start button but it affects the analog stick itself if you hold it in a direction when plugging in your controller, and same for the shoulders so i just assumed it would translate to the start button :/, anyway, i just turn pause off all the time in tourney nowYou can also ask your opponent if it's okay to turn pause off in the menu before starting a set. One of our players here made a habit of that, and always made sure to put pause back on after a set was finished.
