Lets get this over with since this thread of miles is of some importance.
No negative comments, Like "PR threads sucks." "This is Pointless cause Yushee sux" "We've done this already idiot, Stop trying" etc.


Here's the link to the original thread and stuff. This thread shall be locked and forever thrown in the depths of Yoshi's Islands Volcano once we're done.
THAT IS ALL, and enjoy throwing axes and Eggs at eachother across the dinner Table

This is in no way in ANY order of the PR Placements, just the dates are in order from the tournaments the player has attended and On how many tournaments they've been too in the past 8 months.

I was told to explain how the system works, I don't think I can necessarily call it a system at all.
What I basically did was gather all the tournament results Get people to tell me who's a notable player in their region, have Flayl's Stats for the Yoshi players in the OP and I look at Points/Tournament Results/Who've they beat and just put it in a order I believe is slightly right. I think this would be called being Bias or just Opinions, but of course why does any Yoshi care?

For another note, Thanks to Flayl for putting together a great list for all Low tiers which made this Yoshi PR alot easier.
Will update it with who everyone beat and Lost too in the tournaments posted once I finish adding everyone else.
Good players That the Yoshi main Won/Lost against will be in

Well my thread the Character/Player Success Rankings is all tournament results, so we could use that.

IMO it's not 100% though, I shouldn't be top 5.

Here's the link: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=288046

My thread says it should look like this:
1. Poltergust
2. Delta-cod
3. HadesBlade
4. ~Firefly~
5. Z'zgashi

But IMO I would switch hades and firefly then replace me with slush, mx, or someone else more worthy of that spot.

Look, i'ma fix the list for you guys dammit.

Poltergust
Deltacod
Hadesblade
Firefly

That's it. The gap between 4th and 5th is too large to have a legitimate top 5, and the others that can easily make top 5 are inactive.
Taken from the top 5 thread.

Where do you guys rank YOSH on your list?

The only Yoshis I've played are Polt and YOSH.

YOSH is inactive most of the time. His main attendance is from WHOBO. If he was more active, he'd definitely be a contender for top 5.
How in the hell can I be more active? The closest tournaments are 7+ hours away. That's the reason I go to Hobos. I'm not made of money and free time. I've got a full-time job (which is why I didn't go to any of the MLG tournaments because they have stuff that happens on Friday). I'm lucky that I was able to get off for WHobo in March after asking off 2 months in advance.

You have to understand it from a non-bias point of view. If whobo is your only attending tourney, how can you be placed as a top 5 if other yoshis go to more tournies (and place well)? I'm not dissing your skill in any way, but a list stating top 5 active yoshis does not care about a yoshi's personal problems. It really sucks for you because of your location (which is the downfall of good players). It's one of the exact reasons why i don't like considering a yoshi pr.

Green Ace retired from brawl. He can't be considered.

Oh, I understand completely and have understood for about a year and a half now, which is a reason why I've kind of stopped getting on smashboards entirely. I literally haven't been on here in over a month and I only got on today because I'm snowed in at work and I'm bored. I just don't care anymore. I know what my skill level is, I know what I should be ranked, and whether others list me as a good player or not I don't care. I have fun playing this game competitively and that's all that matters to me.

So, if you play for your own amusement, then this entire thread should not even matter at all, unless you're Polt these days.


Still, you should at least chat here with fellow Yoshis. I'm pretty much retired from this game due to personal issues, but I like to at least talk to fellow Yoshis that made me have fun chatting here. Hell, you don't even log onto Skype, so you just tend to poof from the face of the Earth until Whobo arrives.

I don't use Skype because none of my other friends use it; they all use AIM. And I don't get on smashboards anymore because it's turned into just social threads. If there were tips and strategies and critiquing going on regularly like there was when I first got on the smashboards, then I'd be on here more. But threads devoted to just figuring out who the top 5 players of each character are? It doesn't interest me.

There's actually work that has been going on here (slow, but happening). Yink is going to clean our board, but we have to update all of our information first. This top 5 thread came just because of the top 5 thread that happened in the competitive discussion boards. No one here cares enough to rank people when most Yoshi players have problems going on that keeps them from tournaments.

Oh look it's one of these threads again. You guys should check out the original one on the peach boards that's now locked (hell even the newer one has some drama). Great drama.

Okay guys, I know there's a lot of skepticism on who's top 5 or not, but let's try to at least stay on track and be nice to each other, hmm?

I mean I WILL lock this if I have to (and I don't want to have to), so let's get back on track. I think it's a fine idea to make a list of Top 5 myself. It's quite competitive, and though there will always be some bias it pushes you to do better and to really be great with your character.

We're not doing one for Ness because there's so few of the Ness mains left (and we pretty much all agree on the placements of the Top 5 anyways), but I think Yoshi should be fine.

Don't let it get out of hand or yeah I will lock it, otherwise just discuss.

As of late, I seriously wanna try at getting on this list, I've been beating/almost beating players I've never even imagined I would. So far, of all 10 pr'd players in my state, only 3 haven't faced defeat from me in the past couple months (just need to take out numbers 1, 2, and 4)

LOL That bracket.

I like your new drive. All Yoshis should have the drive to be unanimously declared top Yoshi. Since there's a good portion of us that are in a relatively close areas of skill, it really would drive up competition and hopefully improvement. So this list isn't all bad, and if nobody is bickering about your placing, it means that you're cemented as that spot, which means you either wanna break it or hold it.

Top 5 yoshis:
1.Polt
2.Delta
3.Firefly
4.Hades
5.Me/YOSH

Done. That is the top 5 yoshis in terms of skill level.
I know you wont put that list because this is a tournament results based list, but imo the only yoshi close to that is MX and i dont think he is quite as high a level player as this list, who have are all high level players and have demonstrated ability to beat high level players.

*runs*
thats my opinion, based on results, videos, and ego. =]

I think the gap is closing tho, peepz like Z and slush competin a lot and puttin in lots of work, polt and delta are at the top of their game, i got a car so hopefully i can back up my talk a little (not like i am making very bold claims XD)

2011 ish da year!

Whose your number 5?
I'm surprised im not in more peoples list tbh. I dont care really, i dont compete much anymore i guess but i place better than most other people people put on their list, in a harder region. My last tournament i didnt have to leave for, i lost to 2 lucarios but still got like 13th/51 or something.
I wish i coulda played bracket at WGF, maybe gotten noticed a lil more by yall. Next time tho =]
