The actual ****? Your country's geography is annoying as hell.

EDIT: Updated the OP because I was in a good mood after watching Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out the bottom half. It's a bit in a "beta" state so to speak, but I can update it once I get more input.

Do you keep up with the TLOC streams at all?

I would like plug myself (I usually don't like doing these kinds of things). I main Roy/ZSS obviously, but right now I've been working toward improving my ZSS so I can get on the list for her (I'll work to get on the Roy list eventually). My ZSS has managed to beat Disafter, who is currently ranked 13th on the Southwest PR and used to be ranked Top 10. Other than that, my ZSS hasn't caused any upsets but it's been relatively close to taking games off other pros such as Awestin. She also beats G-Rabbit in-tourney pretty consistently, who is the 2nd listed Kirby player on this list.

My Roy has managed to take quite a few serious-friendlies (kinda serious non-tourney games, basically) off of AeroLink, #7 on our PR and btw posses a very hard MU for Roy (Link/Tink). It's also actually taken a game off Awestin, although it wasn't in tourney either (he probably wasn't playing 100% since nothing was on the line) but he definitely wasn't trying to sandbag either......I like how I said I would plug my Roy later but then end up doing it now anyway xD.

While I'm at it, my Roy also managed to take a tourney game off of ARC, who is #10 on our PR and #2 or #3 on the Melee PR if I'm not mistaken, and is the best Marth in Texas. And that was 2 months ago.

Again, I don't like talking about myself like this (I generally despise self-praise) but I guess that's what you gotta do on here.

Here's some links to some matches of mine:
Shokio vs. Awestin (Roy and ZSS)
Shokio vs. TheNotSoShyGuy (ZSS)
Shokio vs. G-Rabbit (ZSS and Roy)
Shokio vs. Menk (ZSS)
Shokio vs. CnB | Chandy (ZSS)
Shokio vs. RideTheLine (Roy)
Shokio vs. ARC (Roy)
Shokio vs. Innovation (Roy)

I would lastly like to mention that I'm actually ranked #1 Anther's Netplay Ladder with a 66-6 win-loss ratio, and have been for about a month, if that means anything (probably doesn't).
Lol Shokio wants on the list but he ain't even the 3rd best Roy in Texas! MM Eclipse already!

I see I've fallen off the best DDD's probably due to placing erratically in the past 2 months. that's cool and all, but that's going to change after LTC2.

also, is fly even still playing PM? because I've heard nothing about his placings in the past 3 months

He's on and off. I believe he occasionally plays at the bi-weeklies in SoCal and still places well. He's still ranked 2nd in their PR or something.

Why Oracle Senpai?
You gave someone not named M2K 4 different spots on your list. lol I assumed him randomly giving a shout out was worth mentioning.


Got your attention ^.^


Also, @ Shokio Shokio doesn't sleep like me. He just wait for his next victim. Which by the way, will you be at IaB next week?
Yup, I will. I take it you're coming down?

Ha, except everyone including YOUR people put me up on the 3rd tier lol. I saw those results the other week where like, Eclipse had gotten 13th? He's supposed to be top dog around those parks, that's not supposed to happen.

When I came to ATX, I remember my Roy getting 1st place :estatic:

He probably just wants to focus in melee. Anyway, if I deserved to be removed for placing 8th 2x recently then he should be off all together also.

Last time I talked to him about it he expressed that he finds a less developed metagame unattractive compared to Melee. Said something about winning often due to finding a couple weird things the opponent is unable adapt to in that particular set, and not feeling satisfied by the win as a result (compared to Melee). Reasonable logic IMO, I hope he returns once the meta becomes more developed.

@ KayB KayB You might want to keep an eye on this Kirby player, Gnosis. He wins most of the local events he enters and has made respectable showings against the Texas elite.

Gnosis (Kirby) vs Sethlon (Roy)
Gnosis (Kirby) vs Denti (Ivysaur, Ganondorf)

Fair warning, you probably want to lower the volume before you watch the sets.
I'm very happy to see Gnosis on the Kirby list. The guy definitely deserves it. Every time I watch him, I'm always impressed. From everything that I've seen (I usually do a good job at using objective judgement) it looks like he and I are very evenly skilled with the character.

Update on up and coming players:
Bleachigo, a ZSS player who eliminated Hylian at SKTAR 3, recently beat CruzyCakes and took a game off Emukiller.
Youngster Joey is also another up and coming Mewtwo main who has had a string of great wins.

EDIT:
@ Skeith Skeith Here ya go.

In all it's HD glory.

All the matches have been re-uploaded so that they are formatted to fit the youtube player and have the option to play in 720p.

Except Skeith vs Mojo. That ones on 360p. Sorry, but you guys are just going to have to live with that. Skeith, if you really want me to upload Skeith vs Mojo in 720p, I'll do it, but don't expect it until a day later.
Thanks for the upload! I don't mind the quality, the vids are there and its at least viewable.
Would be awesome if I were to someday be on that top 3 list. I noticed I'm on the Texas list at least :D.

You can take me off the Roy list if needed. I haven't really had any video's even though I've placed decently with him last couple of tournies. I think Lunchables deserves the spot though.

I've been asking around and I also heard NL pretty much doesn't play roy at all anymore. It's just diddy (And that random af lucas/link we saw in winners semis today)

HOWEVER I remember seeing on FB that neo will be playing roy in pm soon (He's in the lab afaik) so roy competition could get pretty good

I wasn't aware of competitive smash at the time, but in the early days of Melee, Neo was a relevant tournament threat with his Roy. He took sets off of good players and sparred with Ken.

Neo vs Ken were some of my favorite matches back in the day. It was matches like that which made me foolishly think that Roy was pretty good in Melee.

I'll be updating the Roy list after LTC2. I have a feeling the results from that tournament will be more indicative of who belongs where. No point in changing it now if I'm probably going to be changing it in a few days.

I want to nominate this video of Neon's Lucas vs K9. You probably just didnt get around to seeing it yet but its really good stuff and should definitely be up there. I dont see Pink Fresh or oracle doing some of the stuff he does and (yeah I know some random's opinion doesnt count for much) maybe he should be higher up on the list...

I think he doesnt travel as much to the big tournies as the other two so maybe that explains it but in terms of gameplay, he shows some really good Lucas tech. Breaking someones shield in GF is pretty amazing in my book :)
