Best of luck, you have an extremely hard road ahead. I'm not Taj, but I'll go ahead... if I get anything wrong or forget things, please correct me.-snip-
Man though if you're just starting now you've got a long way to go. Most of the good low tier players only have a chance because they've been using those characters since like 2005 lol.ok so update on the tournament: i got whooped, hard! i couldve made it to winners bracket but there were no seeds, just random matchups, so i played against some really good marths. kinda a waste of 15 bucks. but at the same time, i know im helping keep smash alive in my town, and now i know how good ill have to be if i wanna compete.
i will become the pokemon master.
1. You should use Advanced Techniques sparingly against casual players, because it's likely that they probably have no idea as to what you are doing and will try resort to their set habits of throwing out random Rolls, B-Specials and Smashes. (Ex. You start to Dashdance or Wavedash back and forth, looking for an opening to strike back and a casual Falcon player randomly decides to use Down-B to hit you.)Hey guys, I'm new to smash forums
I really just found about competitive plays/tactics when I found an old YouTube clip of taj kicking butt with mewtwo
I've been practicing my wavedash, shffl, dash dance, DI etc. but when I play my friends, NONE of them do any of that....so while I'm trying to learn new tactics to make me better, I'm getting my butt kicked constantly cuz they just keep playing like they always have
I've tried lvl9 CPUs, and those are really easy to beat, but humans are a totally different story
My question is this: my mind games don't work on them because they don't suspect anything funky when I start wavedashing, and instead of getting a cautious, confused opponent, I get dodgerolled repeated on me so many times until I have to result to their tactics to pull out a win...in other words, their ignorance is making it hard for me to practice advanced tactics and improve, what do I do? Am I really just not good at these techniques/should they be working and I just truly suck?
My advice to you would be to use Smashboards to your advantage and try reach out to other players within your area of region.Thank you shadow spear, but another problem arises; i have no advanced players to play against....and I can go Into training mode all I want and try to practice shffl and wavedash, but it's not anything compared to facing a real advanced player....is there somewhere where I can find places in my area to train in melee or only tournaments that I have to
1) pay to get in and
2) get my butt kicked so easily I don't get any better
If they're close to the ledge, drop from ledge and teleport to stage or platform with landing lag. If they're toward the center of the stage or are trying to cover the space between center and the ledge, then drop down > double jump > air doge onto stage near ledge is better. Being able to stall with teleport until they commit to one side or the other is the best thing to do.Hey guys, I'm planning on going purely Mewtwo at the next tournament (this saturday) except for certain MUs in which I prefer Ganondorf.
Anyway, I have a few questions: What's the best way to get off the ledge as Mewtwo? It's something I have a lot of trouble with
What should I do to get back to the stage when above my opponent? What I used to do was just fall with Nair but that never really worked.
Last questions, what can each character use to punish Confusion without us being able to shield it? Is there a list somewhere?
I haven't played Hbox in a full match at all. I played him for one stock at Apex 2010. That was all the info I needed to know. His style will completely crush me if I try to play him straight up. I could POTENTIALLY win by timeout but it would take infinitely more concentration from my part than his, and his focus is already godlike.hey Taj have u ever played mango's/hbox's jigglypuff before and how do u feel about the m2 vs jiggz MU in general. Just curious is all?
is anyone even remotely interested in this?reviewing footage from last night, i def have an upcoming release in store for the mewtwo boards in the way of entertainment
Galaxyblast II: Shadow Strike is a go
just a disclaimer, don't expect a video showing new technology that'll revolutionize gameplay or whatever. i'm shooting for entertainment ONLY, and i think i can at least deliver that. i will probably have it finished/released sometime in the next month or so
EDIT: hi vectorman!
