well maybe the 24 can mean you're a bowser main 24 hours a day ;)

anyone goin to g3nesis? Im goin and would be down to play with yall : )
I'm restricted to North east tournaments as of right now but I'd love to hit up one of the big nationals one day. I'd love to play with any of you guys, too. A chance to actually play with someone who respects the character would be nice. Maybe even advance the meta a little...that **** would be hype.

Oh geez that would be great. Lets keep in touch so we can someday play together. I doubt it will be anytime soon tho, as I live in Canada (Québec) and I'm the only Bowser main here xD (And studying and can't travel... o_O)

Ayyy good news guys! I went to a weekly yesterday, and my stagefright didn't kick in! :DDD I found that when I rest my elbows on my knees, I focus 100% into the game.

First match I beat a Sheik, and then everyone wanted to do friendlies with me. I played with pretty much everyone and won tons of them. So yep, I enjoyed this a lot, releasing all my potential into the game, and it was epic. :D Suddenly went famous lol.

I'm gonna focus even more on Bowser now, I need to practice a few things...

Edit: I'm trying to find a picture of Paper Bowser in his white tuxedo (wedding with Peach) with transparent background for my avatar. Anyone could help me find one - make one with photoshop? It would be greatly appreciated. :o

Alright guys, it's the second time I accidentally cancel my Bowser bomb on the ledge, this time on Yoshi Story. I landed on the side of the ledge, heard the boom, then Bowser dropped and grabbed the ledge. I have no clue if it would be useful tho, and it seems hard to do lol.

Well, that's it. o/

Was bored so I decided to check out the life of the Melee Bowsers.

It's pretty amazing how radically different the two play between Wii U and Melee. You guys are real inspirations for sticking with him this whole way!

Well yeah, in Smash 4 he isn't even that bad. Low mid tier, sure, but he has a lot to work with. On the contrary, Melee Bowser is absolute sadness. But we love him anyways.

I may or may not have been playing quite a bit of Melee Bowser lately. Maybe because I miss "ye olde days" when I was 9 or 10, come home from school and just Bowser Bomb people in Training Mode for hours. Maybe it's because of all those DJNintendo videos I watched.

Nevertheless, Melee is quite a bit more fun now that I sorta know what I am doing. Wii U is still my niche (I admit that I feel Melee is too fast/too technical for me) but I guess I'm a Bowser casual now. Lurkin' on these forums now.

I feel like, deep down, everyone is a bowser casual.

It's just the social pressure that they are insecure about. They'll come out of the castle eventually.
No I think they just like playing characters that are good

or maybe they're just scrubs, yeah probably that

Don't say something you're gonna regret, Lum. It will only take 3 weeks for bowser to get across FD and fair you to death. Maybe like 3 more days for the jumpsquat. Max 4.

Just in general you sho
uld be worried.

Don't get me wrong, Bowser is most certainly waifu material! But that is exactly the issue, human reflexes slow down when something as thicc as bowser is always on the screen. I can't risk that kind of tactical disadvantage long-term. TBH that's the only reason he's considered low-tier. Otherwise this board would get more action than the falco general thread after PP won Apex. Look out peach, the real stonkest booty en gaeming iz hear.

Winning two sets at your first tournament is something to be proud of, especially with Bowser. No matter what the opponents skill level may have been, that's something.

Don't rely too heavily on upB OoS though, just a side note. If you do, good players will recognize this and punish you hard.

There isn't enough players to advance Bowser's meta rip. The few players are either nihilistic, switching to other characters and saying Bowser is not viable, or just not here.

This is a lonely road.

No there really isn't, but there are a few of us who are devoted to the character. Need help, need work, we are here to assist.

I don't think it's so much nihilistic as it is realistic. For example, I think this would apply to me very accurately. I don't think playing Bowser is meaningless, but I do think that in order to win in tournament (at high level, anyway) you can't really play anyone worse than, like, Luigi or Ganondorf.

That said, I still think we have the collective power to make a difference in Bowser's meta.

Hey just updating here; I placed 49th at DreamHack MTL and 65th at Canada Cup this year.

It's only the beggining I believe, there's still a lot for me to learn.

Hello. I am a traveling warrior looking for my Smash 4 main(s). As a part of my journey, I will be visiting all the character’s social threads who I think I might main. So, hi! To add some substance to my post, what do you think about character socials? I think they are a great way to talk with fellow people who play the character and learn more about the character as well as being able to chill and talk about stuff irl.


:luigi:Hope to talk with you again!
