a rookie plays fox but badly, and then realizes he will never be good at anything except playing mario and so when he finishes all of his mario tech practice after about 10 minutes or so he satisfies himself by making a post on every thread in the mario forums
Um, I've considered it 1,000 times already xD But it's like lying to my heart ya know? I can't do that to myself. It's like asking Daigo to stop playing Ryu(NOT GONNA HAPPEN) lol. I will overcome these Top Tiers.Yeah I heard the story somewhere.
Also have you ever considered picking up a top tier secondary to help with some of the really rough MUs?
I believe! You got this bro!
Sadly I'm not as much as a man as you and a big part of me feels like I need to have a pocket fox :/
Hey a rookie, are you asian or white? I remember watching you play at Koc2 and it was really dark and you had these giant glasses on so it was a tough decision. Knowing these kinds of things is very important to me, thanks
Wow thats a diverse gene pool right there i cant even fathom the amount of breeding that wouldve been needed. I consider myself mostly mexican but my dad is white, cant really tell you what flavor of white he is though they all look the same to me
Whaddya mean by going ham? I mean spacing and zoning happens regardless so I am just curious.I've always tried to play the spacing and zoneing game with marth and it's recently occurred to me that that's probably a terrible idea, gonna try going ham next time i play a decent marth.
Don't try to outspace marth. I'm a marth player and very much not a mario player but this advice applies mostly ubiquitously–playing against marth is largely about baiting him into making commitments (almost all of his moves) and punishing him for it when he does commit. Mario has a pretty decent wavedash/land and generally very solid movement, so while he's definitely not as good as say fox at punishing marth's flubs he shouldn't have a terrible time playing a baiting game. I'm sure an actual mario player will have better and more specific advice than I do though.I've always tried to play the spacing and zoneing game with marth and it's recently occurred to me that that's probably a terrible idea, gonna try going ham next time i play a decent marth.

Yeah I mean obviously I can't just go full ****** and run into him but my point was I was trying to play marths game instead of getting around his game.
How did you do at SSS A Rookie?
Wow ive heard of brown mario and green mario and have watched sone of their stuff before, but I never knew they were so good, they did some real cool stuff in some recent vids I watched. Plus theres another guy called cape who plays mario good as well, and others like eggz. I feel like a scrubby mario in comparison. Beating a rookie in mario dittos could help motivate me though
thx a rookie. yea they were really good.
U got some great stuff going on with your mario , good **** on reppin him too with your placings.
I havent been using Mario too much since July when i went to costa rica
I personally dont think mario is better in any of the matchups lol, maybe sheik though where fmash followups could work better but idk. His improved combos (doc combos fine) dont make up for losing killpower edgeguards/gimps fair setups and better followups. I never seem to connect enough uairs as mario but im working on it, im trying to implement full hop uair-uair. but atm docs is better because it stalls the opponent in the air instead of knocking them away, making it perfect for full hop hair-uair, dair-uair-usmash/dmash combos. i feel like marios combos characters around ganons fallspeed very well, but this is pretty niche and still isnt that much better anyway.As a guy who's switching to Doc as a main, I think it'd be good to know mario also for fun and I was wondering what differences there are between the two characters that make a huge difference in playstyle and what matchups you all believe mario would be the better option than Doc in?
