It is kind of crazy to me to think that six years ago, on my birthday, was when I started Make Your Move. When I first started off, making Scizor and expecting it to be bad (it was), I wasn't sure how well I'd really be received in the community. An invitation to Leadership, a victory and a calvalcade of high placings long erased any doubt that my young newcomer mind may have had about that, and today I stand as one of the top Make Your Movers around. A long way from Demyx's guitar twangs with Perches Poxtrot, eh?
But Make Your Move is not a contest of one mere person, and many people have been a part of my career, for good and for ill. And so I thought that, on Make Your Move's 10th anniversary, and on my 6th, that Froy Day should not be an event just for me. It should be an event for everyone, a celebration of the joy of creating Smash Brothers movesets, the wonders of fighting games, the broad appeal of franchises people create, and its freedom it enjoys its game designers. It is not just me who has evolved. Simply compare the top sets of Make Your Move 12 to those of today and you will see a clear upgrade in pracicality, in how we design sets, in our balance and in ourselves.
And so I say: Thank you for the last 6 years, where Make Your Move has been an important part of my life, and a hope to many years more. I now invite everyone across Make Your Move to join in the Froy Day festivities, post the sets they have created, and make this a day to remember! And, again, thank you for everything! Froy Day will offically last until the end of the 11th this year...but, of course, don't let time hold you back. Break through the impossible and be your best!
