QFT.yea im not worried bout that, i just dont like pictochat, distant plantet, ps2 or hanonbow.
Its your tournament. I'll trust you. Just don't expect to see me counterpick picto. (though I might just do it to throw people off)Theres actually a kirby player at RIT that I play with twice a week, and when i found out he played kirby way back at the beginning of the school year, that was the first thing I taught him how to do. lol
you can stall with it potentially. but rock runs on a five second or so timer and than hes forced to transform back. at which point he is vulnerable. not only that, but if you suspect that somebody is using that tactic to stall the match out, feel free to call me over and i will personally dq them.
also, if you werent aware, picto also gives sonic an invincible spindash and DK an invincible spinning kong.
I actually just sent an attendee a sizable email because he questioned me about the viablity of that stage.
Just trust me on this one. Pictochat is a viable tournament stage.
Its not like im not listening to people here. i banned 2 or three stages already because people didnt want them on.yea only cuz i knew i was gunna lose haha
but seriously man, why are those stages on there, im not trying to pick a fight or argue i just want to know. it is your tourney and u have last say, i understand that. but come on the past 6 pages of this thread is people bithcing about stages.
See this? this is the kind of unnecessary thing im talking about. theres no need to get in a frenzy about this, I have told you time and time again if it seems like the majority of people want something changed, ill change it. its just that at the first tourney i just wanted to try new things, after that, you guys had your say it what stayed and what went. cura spoke up to me about this. but until 3 days ago, i was under the impression that he was just an army of 1 trying to force me to do things his way, because nobody else spoke up and would civily discuss things with me.QFT.
Seriously get that **** outta here. Makes our region look like a joke. <_<
Since a lot of people seem to not like these CPs I suggest making a petition. Anyone that plans to attend this event PM me and I'll get a petition going.
1. yoshi's island brawl and frigate orpheon are banned?this will be the stage list for brawl at SS3, why not make it the same?
corneria (doubles only)
Uh-oh Goggles, are you trying to challenge me? Cause I've never played Dr G and I KNOW I can beat you.Im of the impression that I can beat everyone in this region below Dr. G pretty soundly.
ps2 is one of pikachu's best cp's.and im gunna get wicked good on ps2 just to be a ****!
1. Fixed for slightly more accuracy.ps2 is one of pikachu's best cp's.
People look down on our region because our region is bad aside from the top 7 or 8 players. Those of us that went to VC saw firsthand just how competitive one of the top regions is. Stop johning about dumb stuff like the stage list and get better at the game.
Compared to highly populated regions like NJ/NY yes we look bad, but I'd say as far as our skill level goes we're pretty average. NJ is at he pinnacle of skill.ps2 is one of pikachu's best cp's.

This really isn't about you though. I myself feel that there are a decent amount of people I can go head to head with who will be attending this event, and because of these stupid CPs I might lose because I don't have experience on these stages.No.
If those people were to counterpick me to distant planet or ps2 or what-have-you, would they beat me then?
I dont think so.
Edit: Oh also I agree with Alts original statement, only the top 3-4 people in this region are worth talking about when compared to the top people of every other region. Yes I'm saying this from the position of a scrub, but I know where I stand. It just kinda pisses me off when people make themselves out to be hot **** when they really aren't that great. <_<
People are good because they know everything that can possibly happen in the game, understand the implications of certain things more than others, and are better at using their knowledge.Just because you know everything about these stages doesn't mean everyone else will, or should they be expected to know.
attending one large tournament doesnt give you the right to judge anything which is kinda the feeling im getting here.Compared to highly populated regions like NJ/NY yes we look bad, but I'd say as far as our skill level goes we're pretty average. NJ is at he pinnacle of skill.
I was at VC myself and I saw how good they where but still, that has nothing to do with how ******** pictochat is.
Than GET experience on the stage, thats why we announce tourneys so early. so people can make plans to be prepared for the tournament.This really isn't about you though. I myself feel that there are a decent amount of people I can go head to head with who will be attending this event, and because of these stupid CPs I might lose because I don't have experience on these stages.
Thats the point. If you and bry are at a comparitive skill level and he beats you because you dont know how to play pictochat, that makes him a better/smarter player because he knows the game better than you.Before I went to VC I trained for a week on their set of neutrals because some of them we don't use up here. (Lylat Cruise). These sort of stages that no one uses really can throw people off assuming x player and y player are at a compatible skill level.
This to me is like saying, why should I watch videos of m2k and ally, when I play falco?Until I read this topic I had no idea about that kirby trick on pictochat. . . and before this event why would I even bother to investigate or care? It's not like pictochat is every played. And if you don't think that **** can be abused, then you should see some of 13370's matches on Brinstar.
Actually, thats EXACTLY what it means...Just because you know everything about these stages doesn't mean everyone else will, or should they be expected to know.
Why should I bother to learn about an aspect of the game that is clearly ********? It's like saying I should learn everything about items, or try to learn MKs infinite cape glitch tech skill etc.
I think my time would be much better spent learning the legit aspects of the game, not the parts that no one cares about. I mean its not like I have unlimited amounts of free time to just sit here and learn about obsuce aspects of the game that in 99% situations said knowledge is useless.
because stuff like this can happen, and youll realise after a little while that things arent really as cut and dry as you believe them to be at first.actually i like ps2. i change my mind after playing it all day. i still think pictochat and hanenbow are ********, but respect others opinions.
So basically you have absolutely no idea how applicable this stage is for competitive play and you just want it banned because you dont know it as well as some other people do....?Okay lets say two people sat down to play a game.
Game x has a certain number of "Rules", or "Aspects", which in this case I'll define as x y and z.
If a player wants to become skilled at game x then they are going to learn all about rules or aspects x y and z. Now said player plans to attend an event which features game x. And then about a week or so before said event, the organizer of the event decides to plug in a new aspect, aspect w.
Now after countless time of learning all about aspects x y and z said player has one week to learn all about aspect w.
Why can't we just stick to the usual stages? If its all about skill, then why have all these new stages?
Having all these new stages that no one ever plays isn't fair imo. For each stage most players have specific stratagies against x character. For instance I know that if I'm facing ICs I usually want to go BF to avoid the grab. Or if I have to go to sv I know that its going to be harder for me to camp because of its size, Or if its ps1 I know all about the ******** ledge, and each of its phases and what I should do.
Sharky, whenever I play a set with you I agree to play by said rules. If I felt the rules where unfair I probably wouldn't agree to the match. Both players in any match have an understanding of what the circumstances of the match is, and respect those rules. If I ***** about it afterwards thats what we call Johning.
But right now I have a legitimate concern with some of these cps so I'm just voicing my opinion. Others clearly feel the same way. -shrug-
DP, I think we could team. Sonic and peach sounds like an amazing (albeit REALLY really bad) team but my teams sonic has been off recently and I do play a pretty legit wolf, and wolf teams well with anybody.To fight against or team with. Ether way Meta is fun to fight and he is seriously does not bother me at all, win or lose to him. People call me insane cause of this and I have so much confidence against meta. Guess that is why I can fight him well with Peach. Wish I was like that agains the rest of the cast :/
I would not mind teaming with a Meta. If the meta is a smart player, I am able to do serious damage with him.
