>He didn't run away guys! He played fair and square the whole time!
I'm not mad that Kirby lost, I'm mad that autismscarf won. Plus he was incredibly boring to watch in the final match whereas Kirby at least did some cool things.
I was rooting for Olimar though, up until he got voted out in favour of fucking ZSS.
Zero was a douchebag, I really wanted the other guy to win because it seemed like he really put his heart into it.
I'm going to be able to come back up next time and kick your ass.
>will lose if her charges in
>wait it out for a chance to even the playing field
>rush in and lose
It's perfectly fine, stop getting upset because of MUH HONOR, I thought only soulsfags were that autistic
What pissed me off was him spamming the light whip in every match, hiding next to the ring in the punch out stage, and hiding under the bi-plane wing in the Pilot wings stage. People called the Wii fit chick a camper, Sperglord was the worst offender.
They both played by the rules of the tournament.
The fact that the best way for chubs mcscarf to win was to run away was the fault of the tournament organizers leaving the result to SD instead of declaring the person with more stock / less percentage the winner.
Crying because he "played cowardly" is tantamount to complaining about your friend "spamming fireballs" in street fighter.
Holy fuck give it a rest, it's been hours. HOURS. Do you have nothing better to do with your time than argue about how two faggots played a casual Nintendo game as a publicity stunt to advertise the product?
Everyone is just upset that he sort of killed the hype at the end. I knew he'd do that as soon as I saw the difference in damage and time remaining, as well as the obvious advantage he'd have in sudden death.
It was the right way to win, just the wrong way to entertain.
That's called getting juked in competitive gaming
Anyone else think he changed his strategy to run like a fucking jew bitch when the caster reminded him about the no rules and the sudden death?
does anyone have a link to it?
i missed it by a few minutes, but I was in the thread when /v/ shat themselves.
Not sure why Hbox didn't just land on the middle platform. Kirby's got a solid air game, at least just do a couple rising U-airs, wall off ZSS.
That was a really shitty level for Kirby in that matchup tho.
It was a friendly tournament. There was no money on stake. KoreanDJ even let megaman get the super smash and then get hit so the people would go bonkers. The fat autist chilean and the wii fit bitch were the only tryhards in the tournament.
This. It was a valid tactic but an incredibly anti-hype way to end the tourney. The end of that match was probably the most unhype thing in the entire tournament aside from the awful media battle intermission.
The semifinals and fan favourite battles were a lot more entertaining than the actual finals.
See that middle platform up top? Ever notice how Kirby completely avoids it? It's because he wouldn't have an advantage in an aerial fight. And rather than risk the exposure and go for it with a 42% lead he waited below, where it's safe, for the time to run out against a faster character who had the clear advantage in sudden death. Kirby earned the loss.
If you Smashfags want people to treat Smash like a real fighter, guess what, you're going to have people who play to win. That's how every other fighting game works. Oh sure, you'll get booed for being an unhype shit, but who cares, you won.
Jesus Christ Kirby what the fuck are you doing you can fucking FLY.
Kirby didn't want to go up there and Samus didn't want to go down there. If kirby actually got on any of the platforms he may have been able to catch up.
Frankly, I feel that a lot of characters have ridiculous jump heights.
But it does mean it's hard to make it look impressive
Yeah he didn't come back form low stock or anything. Samus totally earned her victory with her OP air game and ridiculous as fuck range 60% kill smash range.
It's totally fair that Kirby had to work so much harder for a win.
Both kirby and ZSS turtled but only ZSS got called out for it, thats pretty bullshit if you ask me.
I'm still surprised he got in over olimar though due to vote
First of all, ZSS has superior maneuverability over Kirby. ZSS was actually trying to bait Kirby into attack. She caught Kirby in her Down B a couple times using this tactic, and when you're down to one stock, you're going to us your safest bet. In this case, her threat downwards was much more than Kirby's upwards threat. She was zoning him, and trying to get him in the right spot to hit him with her Down+B.
Second, Kirby did some shady shit the match previous. Using the Kirby Piledriver on top of the lights in the middle of the ring to get kills at only 30%. That was pretty bullshit.
>At the end of the third match, the batsman at the non-striker's end, Bruce Edgar, was on 102 not out, and his innings has been called "the most overlooked century of all time".
>This match was already controversial: in the Australian innings, Martin Snedden took a low outfield catch off the batting of Greg Chappell when Chappell was on 52.
>In the confusion before the final ball was bowled, one of the fielders, Dennis Lillee, did not walk into place, meaning that the underarm ball was technically a no-ball, because Australia had one too many fielders outside the field restriction line.
I'm really just going to have to take your word for it.
That's why I was fucking rooting for him, he was competent while also being one of the most entertaining players in the entire tournament and using a relatively unconventional character.
But no the crowd had to go and be faggots and vote for scarflard.
To put it in baseball terms, it's the bottom of the 9th and he needs to hit a grand slam to tie
So the pitcher rolls the ball to him making it impossible to hit a grand slam
at the time rolling the ball was legal
The fallout from it was so big that they changed the rule and now rolling is illegal.
yeah that was pretty bad, even reggie had to try to turn it from BOOOO to ZEROOOOOO
>playing time mode
No good Smash tourney
loluses time mode for this very reason.
This event and the booing audience is why Brawl was worthless.
That's how they see this fanbase.
Insufferable, whiney, loud and obnoxious unpleasable asshats that ruin everything.
This event will be the last big tourney they host because of this poor showing of these people being faggots.
>being bootyblasted while mentally retarded kirby just sticks to the ground like glue instead of pressing his fucking advantage
Bingo. Fighting games have to add in endless features to prevent turtling, infinite combos and other "technically correct" tactics that are frustrating/boring to fight against/watch.
He had to be careful about his approach since ZSS was clearly the stronger character. he was already at %50 so if he made a single mistake while above the stage he'd probably die. Can't blame Hbox for playing it safe.
Zero had a serious handicap and he knew it
It's Nintendo's fault for expecting something else. They know Smash has a very vocal, very annoying tourneyfag base, that is not wanted by the FGC, nor by normal players, so they're black sheep amongst black sheep. They'll do whatever it takes for some recognition, laming a fight or two out is just a normal game for them.
I'm curious about that too, how the fuck did they "calculate" the votes? By eyeballing it? Because in that Olimar vs. ZSS fan fav vote, Olimar CLEARLY had more fucking votes, but ZSS still won. It's bullshit.
Seemed like he and some backstage guys with the help of the camera crew were trying to keep track of it all as much as possible.
However, considering how many people were booing Zero Suit Samus and all, I really doubt Zer0 won the fan favorite vote that carried him to the grand finals.
Also, didn't the rules explicitly say it was going to be Final Destination, no items? I guess for characters like Kirby and ZSS, Battlefield would be more in their favor, but still, it seemed like they randomly swapped the rules sometimes, like the quarter-finals dumping Stocks at random for a normal Time match.
Does he even win anything? I mean christ he's just playing a bunch of nobodies for fun and to showcase the game but he had to be insanely tryhard and completely kill the show.
You're mistaken. Not the attacks that cause the light to fall down. He pile drived them up on top of the light, and because they hit the ground that high up, they went off screen much easier. There was at least one kill at 30% in this maner.
It was pretty hilarious watching the annoucers trying to do flavor commentary for an item match since that shit never happens.
They didn't know how to play it at all.
"OH LOOK HE HAS THE THING, HE'S USING IT, IT DOES WHAT?
"OH SMASH BALL LOOK AT THAT"
"ELECTRIC THING FROM MARIO KART?"
Nintendo makes party games first and foremost. They don't care about "pro" Smash players because they're incredibly embarrassing.
I don't want to imply other fighters are much better. Street Fighter is made up of giga-hikikomoris, Mortal Kombat is 40 year old white guys and Marvel is more negro than the city of Detroit. Those player bases are all revolting in their own right, this much is true. But Smash Bros. is where the autistic, socially-awkward manchildren like Scarflard or Mew2King gather because the learning curve doesn't fucking exist (nor is the ceiling very high.)
I saw nothing wrong with ZSSamus's performance. Though I think when people learn her more, she should be more offence oriented.
That Kirby players war too afraid to angage samus even though that was the only was to have the advantage. He deserved to lose.
Also because they don't let it go to Sudden Death. Whoever has the higher percentage at the end loses so running away like a faggot doesn't work like it did for Scarfbro here.
must be pretty bad to get outmaneuvered like that holy fuck
too much of a pussy to take a chance and get her so he stayed down waiting for him to fall in his lap even though she had a health lead
the better smarter player won
It was (except that 1 chick who camped the whole time) until they all started playing to win. The truth is in FFAs the best strategy is to camp and hit distracted people. That's why the first rounds were more chaotic because it was more yolo.
Yeah. To be fair, he was one of the only players who was actually going in and going on the offensive instead of camping
I was in the crowd and held that Marth card up every damn time ;_;
>didn't the rules explicitly say it was going to be Final Destination, no items
No, that was never the case. It was confirmed that the ruleset would change between quarter, semi, and grand finals.
Well, it did look close, but it seemed like Olimar had the advantage. But Geoff instead called out Zero Suit Samus. We might just be incorrect, but i'm not the only one that feels it was rigged or something.
I don't give a shit about kirby or zss....are you really that buttblasted that people are buttblasted about this?
Stop defending your digital characters like it means something, drone.
Except he mains and does well with Jiggs. Completely different from ZSS, Kirby was the closest to Jiggs so it makes sense. I main Link, if I couldn't choose link I'm not going to play as fucking bowser even if he's stronger. (dont even know if thats true just making an example.)
>Scarflard or Mew2King gather because the learning curve doesn't fucking exist (nor is the ceiling very high.)
This is factually false.
And that said, it's not Brawl that has the bad fanbase. It's Nintendo in general. They attract the worst of the worst, far worse than Sony, Microsoft or even PC master race faggots. They have the biggest persecution complex this side of furries, and think you're literally hitler if you so much as whisper you don't like X nintendo game.
>"ELECTRIC THING FROM MARIO KART?"
I fucking lost it when the announcer said that
I also like how he called the Pitfall "THAT EXCLAMATION BALL"
thats one way to nerf a fucking character what a jackass he should've just hid his powerlevel instead of making ZSS look like some kind of a god character against a scrub AND it was in front of devs
The percentage advantage isn't enough because Kirby is unable to keep up with fast characters.
Even Bowser has more mobility than Kirby outside of recovery.
Kirby is very very slow, and his moves don't combo very well either.
The only noteworthy things Kirby has is Back airs and down airs.
He only got fucked over because he didn't know how to give as much as he got. None of them did really. Ken played like a tourney marth, trying to get in, space it out with throws, play footsies, and sweetspot with his sword to KO. You can't play with that kind of precision in Free for all Items on.
>can't counter simple zoning tactics, in a party game of all things
And that's why you will never git gud at fighting games, OP.
It's okay everyone, have some anti-rage of Zero's signature gay campy playstyle fucking himself over.
Nobody is defending either character
Kirby is shit.
ZSS is strong.
The player took advantage of ZSS's strengths.
The Kirby player had nothing because Kirby is shit yet he took it to the final stock.
The Kirby player was outplayed, simple as that.
Oh, I agree. Mango is a bro. But with his obvious drinking of alcohol and smoking of herb, it's not really Nintendo wants to represent them.
Though, with Reggie talking about kicking ass, who knows.
I think that applies for every Smash game.
Playing against the AI is fucking stupid, and playing online is only going to get WINNING IS EVERYTHING faggots like scarflard. I would play a real fighting game if I wanted that.
Only good way to play this game will be fucking around with friends.
It affected the tourney when there were ties for runner up.
ZeRo tied with aMSa in an earlier round and only got to move on because of the audience vote (which seemed like Keighley pulled it out of his ass, but whatever). That vote wound up deciding who made it to the semifinals, ZeRo would've been knocked out of the tournament right there if it wasn't for the vote.
>See how retarded that sounds?
...yes, people who get mad at others for taking a game, which they don't personally want to play competitively (or in their special little world does not deserve to be played competitively), seriously are retarded, was exactly my point.
>Being this buttblasted that people are buttblasted about people being buttblasted
>Hungrybox acting cocky as shit before the match, taking his sweet time getting up on stage and holding up the match
>continues acting cocky on stage
>tries to challenge Reggie but gets BTFO instead
Wouldn't surprise me if he was the guy who challenged Sakurai in the closed doors event and got BTFO by him too
The turtle was the WFT spic shitbag. She was terrible at the game. The lardass kotaku bitch was Zelda, she SD'd twice. The crazy bitch played pikachu, and she wasn't that bad. Didn't camp or anything. Wasn't the greatest player but she didn't suck shit. Better than the Mega Man player at least.
Mango has one of the most polarising personalities. If you like drinking to the point of misery, he'd gladly join in, but he isn't the kind of guy you'd want to hold a conversation with.
You played like a fucking faggot to win our School's Junior year tourney against that Senior who was kicking your ass, and now you lost to someone playing like a faggot in widely broadcast special.
Karma's a bitch Juan.
It actually does matter.
Hungrybox was trying to find an opening to use and there wasn't one.
Kirby couldn't even keep up in the slightest at the end as well.
Watch the webm again.
ZSS can go across the whole stage before Kirby can even go half way.
>taking his sweet time getting up on stage
are you kidding?
the fattums so so self-conscious he knew that he would be railed if he was late getting up on stage?
dude rushed up there
I read Smashboards for the first time in 8 years.
Jesus this shit really brings me back. They were unbearable in Brawl and they're still unbearable for Smash 4.
Can't wait for their community to die off while the FGC thrives and prospers.
WHERE CAN I WATCH THE TOURNAMENT
IS IT OVER YET
Fairly strange design choice, if you ask me. I liked MM9, but come on, no one gets nostalgia out of that. At least they're leaving out Oilman.
D1 and Prog are actually pretty decent at commenting on Melee, but this was clearly a new game and commenting on a 4 player match with items would be pretty hard. There's just constantly shit flying, so they just tried to keep the crowd hype.
That's funny as fuck dude.
I can just imagine how tournefags would act if such a rule were still legal today
>"SPIRIT OF THE GAME?" HURR I PLAY 2 WIN GIT GUD SCRUB BALANCE IS THE LEAST IMPORATNT PART OF THE GAME
Watch the webm again.
Even when he was jumping Samus was clear on the opposite side.
It doesn't matter what he tries to go for, Kirby is unable to keep up with ZSS mobility.
Even if he did get in somehow he'd have to do several Bairs to KO ZSS at that percent.

You either haven't played Kirby since N64 or you don't know what a good aerial character is.
Kirby has been terrible as an aerial fighter since Melee.
He's only good at edgeguarding.
well there was a similar incident in modern times
barry bonds was on the cusp of hitting record number of home runs in a season
coaches told their pitchers to IBB him every AB.
There was a lot of controversy there too.
>/v/ says tourneyfags are the worst
>gets assblasted because somebody won a tournament in a way they don't like
Good job guys. You have proven yourselves to be worse than what you hate. Again.
The white kid didn't know shit about anything.
Actually I believe his thought process was
>I observe a game at a high level and am very clued into the balance of my game
>I would like to try at tuning the balance of this extremely similar game that I care about
it has more to do with most of them acting like dylan tnga than anything else. ken is pretty cool and he's intelligent enough to be sponsored by teamliquid but most of them are mouthbreathing spergs.
for example take a look at mew2king, kid has autism, can't function normally in society, and plays competitive smash for a living.
There's only 2 kinds of people: people that win and people that lose.
>Got into the finals in a local Brawl tourney
>3 lives, no items, random stage
>Pokemon Stadium as Ike vs Toon Link player
>Intense fight left and right until we were both down to the last life
>Me at 180%, Him at 93%
>Launched him up and as he recovered he attempts the sword slam
>Dodge roll and hard smash him off stage for the win
The whole room lit up and was actually pretty nice to both me and 2nd placer. But if you want to Smash tourney, stock lives are the way to go. Shocked Nintendo went timed.
Announcers that know everything aren't as popular as announcers that are energetic.
It's more about making jokes and getting people excited than knowing your shit.
It's why Yipes is a popular commentator even though all he does is make up lingo.
Scar, Prog, and D1 seemed really out-of-character. It's very likely they were told by Nintendo that they had to say certain things and in a certain way. D1 was more willing to push outside of that and get hype with SCOOPS, among others. Normally they have a much more relaxed and natural flow to their commentary.
In smash the percent isn't your health, its more how easily it is to knock someone out of the stage. They both had one stock so when it came to ZSS being a pansy and stalling they went into overtime; which gives you 200%, which is essentialyl whoever can land the first blow wins.
>for example take a look at mew2king, kid has autism, can't function normally in society, and plays competitive smash for a living.
>"I don't keep up with anything for the past decade"
He's popular, has a lot of friends in the community and is autistic.
>You will never see what was going on in that room
Let's say they include Rash. Let's say they make a Battletoads remake where Rash doesn't punch people with giants fists but uses an Uzi. Rash in Smash's main means of attack is now an Uzi.
Do you see the problem?
>"New Zealand cricketer Warren Lees recounted the underarm incident on New Zealand's 20/20 current affairs show, on Thursday 17 February 2005. He said that after the affair there was a long silence in the dressing room, which was broken suddenly and unexpectedly by fellow player Mark Burgess smashing a teacup."
>The silence was broken by someone smashing a teacup in the dressing room.
>Deflecting instead of working with the community to make the game as best as it can be
>Ignoring any potential highly skilled player that understands mechanics and what is abusable
Sakurai is also terrible at his own games.
Did you know that every other company recently who have attempted to create competitive games have asked their pro players for input?
It turns out that the tournament players actually know a lot more about the games than the developers
For those who don't know, in competitive Smash rules, whoever has the lowest percent automatically loses when the timer runs out and both players have the same stock. Obviously that rule wasn't in place for the invitational.
You do realise that with the I-frames on Zero Suit's down B and air dodge, using a slow and limited move as Final Cutter would only be more of a detriment than anything, I hope. Even characters with quick, offensive Up-B's like Marth or Game and Watch put themselves in more risk than any reward from landing the hit by way of the opponent stroking in one of the most advantageous positions in the game grants.
>dude plays keepaway as meta knight to run down the timer
Okay, yeah, sure. Brawl is a shit game competitively and this guy is proving it, but people like to watch it anyway. Whatever, to each their own, and I can't blame the guy for doing what wins.
>gets mad that he lost
The guy played legitly, this really just highlights that Kirby is total shit. He couldn't really approach her safely at any time, and her final smash is great since it's completely risk-free and guaranteed to get at least some damage in.
Considering how many hard reads Kirby had to do just to keep up, and then Kirby was literally unable to catch ZSS at the end the ZSS player could have taken a stock and ran for 8 minutes.
Would have worked too.
>Kirby player can't even punish properly
>Can't even close out the game at the end
>Only got to grand finals because he edge camped and taunted
>It got so bad at one point that the announcers called him out on it
Glad he lost actually. But really, everyone was a shitter anyways.
And Hungrybox was a faggot the round befrore
All of his kills came from grappling opponents and smashing them in the rafters on the Punch Out area
I consider his loss justice
Did no one else see this?
Yeah, and those players apply or get headhunted from proper channels. They don't act like a cocky faggot and challenge a producer to a 1v1 to get a balance position.
We also don't know who is on their balance team.
Did you not see him? He was fat, awkward, and wore a fucking scarf. We're upset that the guy playing ZSS was a fag and the fact that he played like a fag by using technicalities to help his chances at winning.
What do you think invitational means? Nintendo invited them to play like that to show off their game. No fucking shit.
You guys are seriously bitching because they hosted a competitive event and people played competitively. Really dumb.
Us faggots have much more style than that. How dare you.
Everyone saw it, but boxfags conveniently ignore it because it supports their little narrative about fatscarf being a pussy.
To be fair, a large part of the fanbase just wants melee 2.0. Sakurai was right to just do his own thing.
Hungrybox is a legit good player who was having fun today.
The other scarf fag is a Brawl/PM player that takes every match seriously no matter what, exactly the kind of "tourneyfag" /v/ claims to hate so much.
Am I supposed to feel disappointed or what when they said Sakurai expected Zero Suit Samus and her player to win the whole thing?
It's not that the players were shit, it's that they were playing a game that they had barely ever seen before and trying to apply the knowledge of a different game to it. The fact that they played like ass is kinda reassuring that kerfluffle doesn't play enough like brawl or melee to do that sort of thing.
zero is a cowardly turtling faggot
hungrybox isn't actually shit, just with new kirby, if he was jiggle, tournament would have been over before it even began
but even with that said
with no items, ken would have wiped the floor with everyone
>Sakurai was right to just do his own thing.
This I won't disagree with.
It still feels like he should at least be open to some ideas or at least talk to the community about some things.
They aren't totally clueless most of the time.
Isn't movement the only god damn thing to Smash's entire fucking meta game? The meta game called wavedashing.
Nintendo didn't invite him to the invitational to cover their own ass. Every player they invited is a sociable person who is able to present themselves without pissing themselves in public or breaking a controller and throwing a tantrum.
>we didn't get to see Ken vs Doctor PeePee in the finals
Fuck. And pee pee was actually doing combos when he had the chance. They would have given us a much better show and a much better preview of possible competitive elements.
How? No other character has an attack that does what Kirby's up+grapple does
I mean, I'm cool with the way he won and the way ZeRo won, but if you are going to call BS on someone playing like a cunt, call out everyone who was playing like a cunt
he was, but later at the round table he mentioned that he wasn't shocked that kirby lost to ZSS. He knew the match up was unfavorable for kirby even though he was the guy who fucking invented kirby.
>with no items, ken would have wiped the floor with everyone
This. I was pretty disappointed that he didn't even get a chance for a 1 on 1. He lost because of that item spamming cunt.
Why were there like 3 Arceus that came out of pokeballs during the event?
Aren't they suppose to come out of master balls?? Those bitches got ~1-3 kills everytime it came out.
They're not clueless, but everything they do pushes the game to Melee 2. Like I said, Sakurai wanted his own vision and people are supporting him regardless.
If he wanted to make a purely competitive game to pander to tourneyfags, then he would take advice. But that's not what he's doing.
I love smash bros and nintendo games in general, but no. Nintendo fans are complete faggots about the games. They bitch about everything. Zelda cycle, no new ip's, too many new ip's and not enough old series. They're unappeasable shitheads and I'd rather no one listen to them.
But some balance changes also apply to low level play and makes it better.
A good example of this would be the removal of tripping in Brawl.
Nobody liked that mechanic whatsoever.
But Kirby was fucking garbage who only got that far from camping through the entire tournament.
You can literally go back to the videos and once matches started he ran to the side and did fucking nothing.
Too bad he couldn't camp in a 1v1. Glad that fucker lost.
Of course, he was winning and that's all he cared about. Everyone in the finals except amsa played boring as fuck.
I'm sure even the tourneyfags would have prefered more silly item FFAs than having to watch that travesty. They should have just had 3 or 4 hours of them playing the game normally, rather than some tournament.
>He didn't get invited because he is ugly
Sad but true. I actually like M2K. He's an alright guy, and he shares his shit with people. He's not a big fucking cunt like some guys
>He knew the match up was unfavorable for kirby even though he was the guy who fucking invented kirby.
Are you implying Kirby should be OP just because he's Sakurai's pet? I for one, am impressed and respect Sakurai for not blatantly making all his lovechildren OP unlike a certain MeltyBlood creator.
>(in a sport or game) a series of contests >between a number of competitors, who >compete for an overall prize.
You guys are so dumb holy shit.
>getting mad cause you got rested
maybe you should
go to sleepfag
>A good example of this would be the removal of tripping in Brawl.
I wasn't bothered it by it personally. We're skirting opinions territory, but I'll leave my last word that Sakurai was right in not listening to fan feedback.
I don't see how stalling like this is a problem. Why risk a loss like that by fighting an opponent you couldnt possible KO short of him falling off the stage and failing to recover? Why NOT wait for a tiebreaker in which you have an actual chance to KO him?
I'm not even a smash tourney fag, this is just a flat out logical thing to do.
Obviously not because targeting CT-Zero is easier because he is 1)Not physically attractive and 2)Sports a scarf and goofy glasses, and 3) he is using a female character. Pretty easy to see why the audience was booing him after his victory despite legitimately taking advantage of the full ruleset laid out by Nintendo.
Hungrybox abused Little Mac's stages by grabbing his opponents in the top to KO them easily. Hungrybox as also abused the Final Smash and items in his previous matches as did CT-Zero. Ultimately, the players are not at fault for how the tournament turned out to be but Nintendo. Having a time-limit, items-on and stages not suited for competitive play was an terrible choice. Also, that Megaman stage with Yellow Devil spawning is broken as hell as was Little Mac's stage with exploitable corners to KO opponents easily.
Ultimately, Nintendo killed all the hype this tournament had, not Hungrybox or CT-Zero. They played what they can do and took advantage of their surroundings, time and items because of the Nintendo ruleset.
> (especially of a competition) open only to >those invited.
>noun: invitational; plural noun: invitationals
> a competition open only to those invited.
>A minute is way too long.
Just in the previous round, Kirby sat at the edge of the ring for nearly the entire match except when someone was high %, which was when he'd rush in and try to get the KO.
This I can agree with. Seems like everyone was either clueless or a tryhard. I liked the Rosalina player though, total bro.
Zero wasn't just a faggot for playing keep away at an invitational.
He was also incredibly sloppy with his moves. Next to no combos, kept spamming side b and down b constantly. Hungrybox was actually entertaining to watch in the final. He closed the gap on ZSS, powershielded through the whips and got stuck in
In comp game rules, Kirby would have won but those weren't the rules. So yeah, he won fair and square. Still, it was clear who the underdog of that match was
isn't even a big part of the meta you fucktard. Some characters pretty much don't even use it. Captain Falcon, one of the top characters in Melee, has almost no use for WDing. The meta in Smash is way more in depth then you shitposting retards try to make it out as.
>Are you implying Kirby should be OP just because he's Sakurai's pet
He should at least be good or have a good air game
The funniest part about this whole thing is how the community is going to vilify his ass for it.
We can argue how it was cheap or not all day, but in the end, he's a tournament player and every god damn tourney player in the world was watching his matches. He's definitely going to get shit on for it at later competitions in the very community he's a part of.
It'll be delicious.
So, have you guys gone over to congratulate him for his victory?
It's boring to watch and it wasn't a tournament with a prize on the line.
It was only made to generate hype, and he killed it dead as fuck along with the 2 other people who turtled every fight.
he listened to fan feedback by removing tripping. he listens to fan feedback but it shouldn't dictate his actions to a tee.
everyone has their own visions for a game and too many cooks spoil the broth. imagine if some 3rd strike fag told ono to add parrying to sf4.
I don't give a shit about who's good at Smash like I don't give a shit about who's good at fucking Call of Duty. They play that horseshit competitively too, fucking faggot.
I know someone will link this shit 100 other times in this thread but read it you fuck. The game doesn't recognize your faggy little mind rules, only what's happening in the game. If you want to be judged by a group of faggots I suggest you get into diving or figure skating.
Well, there's still a few months for balancing.
Agreed. It's just like in Street Fighter where if you get the life lead, it is your opponent's job to go in and take it back. I don't see many people crying about it in FGC, yet Smashfags throw a shitfit about it.
They both fucked up
They both stalled, Hungrybox had the clear as day damage advatange, there is no way ZSS could have KO'd Kirby unless Hungrybox shit the bed
Hungry box could have done literally done anything to knock ZeRo out of the sky but didn't want to accidentally embarrass himself. At least ZeRo had a somewhat justifiable reason to not take damage
>It's boring to watch
It was maybe 30 seconds of running away, i can't remember. In the grand scheme of things, 30 seconds is not a lot of time to be bored enough to complain about it.
Also the tie breaker was much more exciting than that last 30 seconds could have been. I wanted ZSS to get BTFOed as much as the next guy.
>It'll be delicious.
But he's been a scumbag for years in the Brawl Scene. No one will give a fuck and his reputation will be the same.
Hell, I know for a fact you don't even keep up with Smash.
Yes. Note how closely tied to competition both words are people. If you guys are going to do some wordplay to make your dumbass arguments work you need to actually know a little bit about the words you're using.
Wait what? Nigga I'm talking about Zero and his ZSS stalling. He's well known for pulling that bullshit constantly with Metaknight in tournaments and people absolutely hate him for it.
When he loses he also gets INCREDIBLY salty and acts as an all around bad sport. I couldn't even begin to imagine what would have happened if he lost against Hbox
>Hungry box could have done literally done anything to knock ZeRo out of the sky but didn't want to accidentally embarrass himself
Only good move he has in the air is Bair
It doesn't KO unless he makes it a wall of pain.
He can't keep up with ZSS, watch the fucking webm again.
Hungrybox is probably the gayest melee player out there. If you didn't notice the ffa matches, all he did was camp. People usually root against him when he plays melee. Zero plays melee too is really good at only after playing it for months. The way he played in grand finals is no worse than how Hungerbox plays melee.
Kirby was not going catch ZSS without getting hit
It was a losing proposition in every way because Kirby is still slow and ZSS is still several times faster than him
As soon as ZSS started to turtle, Kirby had already lost, SD or not
this. also the many "whos?" when the celebrities came out. But Bowser guy played alright
About Scarf, honestly the guy got on the audience's bad side during that match when he got the Final Smash 9 times in a row
>The community is used to Kirby being complete shit
This is what made people root for hungrybox. Seeing kirby slap people's shit and actually combo the crap out of players. Especially when he was matched against a clear high tier character (seriously, that side b is insanely quick and the down b now spikes)
>people literally mad at the tactics they used
top kek m8s. anyone else getting a laugh at all the anal pain in this thread? loved the tourney and had no problems with anyone
That's not true. Spacing is more important, there are more approach vectors, the stages have more variety, it's not better or worse in terms of depth, its just deeper in different ways. Smash requires a different set of skills than MvC or whatever other game.
Except I do. He's the king of stalling with Metaknight. I just replied to another post mentioning it and his eventual salt when he loses trying his bullshit. Oh the salt during his match with ADHD. I will never forget those tears.
>and people absolutely hate him for it.
Some people (mostly on /v/) are salty, but overall he's treated neutrally by other tourneyfags and the Smash community.
>When he loses he also gets INCREDIBLY salty
Not really. He just looks bummed out.
