Note: THIS IS NOT A VIDEO THREAD. The purpose of the thread is to discuss a particular match and analyze why the player did so well, so did so terribly. Each week, I will name a set and we will discuss how the Falco was able to win/how or why he lost the match.

ALSO, PLEASE DO NOT GO OFF TOPIC, THIS IS STRICTLY FOR CRITIQUING AND ANALYZING TOP FALCOS, Thank you.



Let me know what you think, and let me know if I should take out or add in players/videos. :awesome:

I think Chota is from Mexico.

You're missing Masha for Japan, Kasper for Europe, and SK92 for America.

I'm only looking for any RECENT and good matches of the Falcos I have listed, for the purpose of showing an MU or that the Falco beat someone relevant. ( For example, Larry recently beat Tyrant, one of the best MK's in the U.S ) Understand what I'm getting at?


And also, Yodery, he plays Melee... o.o This is brawl bro, wrong thread.

Deimos and Gluto haven't picked up Falco since a long time ago.
Not saying that they don't have a good Falco, just that they don't use it anymore.

MVD
Xaltis
GDX
Mampam
Ryo
Seibrik (money match, tho)
DRN
DFEAR
Kyon

among others. I'm not half bad trololol. DEHF can vouch for me

I'm not ranked yet, but I will be by next week since Florida's Power Rankings are getting updated. I'll probably be ranked 7th at best. I was at a tournament last weekend (A Florida Regional and an Apex qualifier) and I placed 9/71. K.U.B. to be exact. I'm also going to WABA in November (Georgia national), so we'll see how that goes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84LYahsSPdQ - Here's a vid of me from like 2 months ago. Most recent one I have lol

Oh damn, I didn't get to watch that... and not bad, but I think that your falco could be better and that you have some bad habits. I just don't think it would be good enough to be on the list, but nonetheless, you're a pretty damn good falco. :) Also.. would you happen to know someone who could organize videos of all these falcos... -.- ? Although I made the idea, I'm not the best at these kind of things.

I'm always hella rusty considering I don't own the game bahaha. Like I said, I'm not as good as the others, but I'm practically right below. Everyone has bad habits, so that's not necessarily a flaw, imo. I was just throwing my name out there though.


As far as the whole video thing is concerned, I'm not sure really. Everyone is hella lazy (especially me rofl)

lol look in the top videos of characters thread in competitive brawl but if you want videos of falcos just playing good against good people then i'm sure i can find you a few.

here's one of masha: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s49l0hQp8WM#t06m26s

also trollby bombsoldier did use falco when he did play brawl then he dropped him for mk.
Ah.. I see... but, I'm not very good at organizing, it will be very dull, however it will be simple, but I'm not sure many people would like such a thing. :/

I don't really like the idea of this thread. It's pretty much just a watered down video archive.

What I suggest we do is make a video analysis thread like the BBR is doing, but make it falco specific and make it a community collaboration to analyze them. Video analysis is extremely beneficial to improving and it's how I spend most of my time "practicing". I don't live near any good players (closest city is Houston which is a 2 hour drive) so I don't get a ton of play time, but I make up for that in slowing videos down and deciding what was going through that players mind to make the decisions he did.

If we do decide to do this, masha's performance at the sunrise tournament was very good to analyze. He made a lot of really smart decisions and was able to camp better than any falco I've ever seen. We should really break down why it was that masha was able to just mainly camp, but never get predictable.

In my opinion they're in different leagues.

So serious.

I love all of you, respect many of you, and look up to a few of you.

I agree with Blondie about making a thread to analyze matches. I think it would be more beneficial to put more video analysis into the character match up threads instead of character play styles, but it wouldn't hurt to have both.

I don't think we should have a thread like this. Too many bias opinions will just make this thread turn into a heated debate. If anything, we should just have someone make a new Falco video thread or take over the old one. I think -DR3W- or Keitaro should be in charge of the thread since they both seem to visit the Falco boards fairly frequently and also seem to be pretty organized.

The idea for an analytical-based system a thread sounds helpful. It really would improve each person personally with the help of others, and I think that's great. We have it as a critique thread currently so are you guys saying we basically replicate that, but with a more individual approach?

DEHF is also right about the bias. That is why I wanted to come up with a general consensus of some of the best Falcos worthy of being in a 'Best of Falco' thread. If we came to an agreement we wouldn't have to worry about that.

Upon further speculation on my part, we should keep this thread around for a while and see where it goes. We could try to make an invidual video critiquing thread too, soon.

Ah, I see. So then I should take the latest videos of these named falcos and see how they did so well and try to perhaps enhance our own playstyle based on the playstyles these falcos have played... Sounds good.

Ah, So should I try to add in the LATEST and probably the most appropriate videos of each falco and put it on the list and then see what people think about each individual set or match or... should that have it's own thread..? Imo, I guess I could probably do that, but I'd much prefer someone more professional try to create the critique thread.



Well guys, this sounds like a great idea, we could all possibly learn a little bit from what's about to come. :)

Haha no, keep this thread updated with the best and brightest of Falco players. That's your responsibility with this thread, if you think you can keep up with that. I can see this lasting for a while, as a guide for both us and newer players.

A separate thread can be done where someone posts a video, and the entire community critiques it. But, we would have to stay on that video for a set amount of time or we would get side-tracked (you know it's true, lol). That would definitely require community effort as well.

So basically, if we're on the same page, these will be the end products:

- Best of Falco (top players video thread)
- Old Video Thread (For everyone? Acting as an archive-type place so the board isn't limited to everyone's and people can find their videos easily)
- New & Improved Individualized Critique Thread (a new video in an undetermined amount of time [we'll figure it out] meant to improve players individually instead of getting half-***** critiques in our current thread)

Thoughts?

Ah, so leave this thread the way it is then? Because there is no longer any other falcos I know of that should be added into this. :p

Wait hold up so you're going to post vids and you want me to put them on the thread or start discussing this, I haven't exactly grasped what you said.
I posted the video with the intention that you would put it up. I encourage others to do the same. Obvious top level matches.

masha wasn't "camping" lol he was zoning. he's controlling how his opponents move with lasers and keeping pressure with jab cancels and rolls from a safe position.
