M2K's training has been 'almost double the length' than usual, and this autist already beats a horse dead with prep.
Are you ready for him to take EVO by storm while Mango fanboys cry and boo in the crowd?

Alot of casuals probably watched somewat competitive smash for the first time at E3. They got interested in it and started watching the tourney streams(KoC4 capped at like 30k for a grassroots tourney.) The smash doc also helped.

Mango has dominated all the recent major tournies, and he's won evo last year to boot. He's operates on a different level at this point, and unless people have been practicing 24 hours a day I dont see the outcome changing.

Plus, M2K got fucking scraped by a gimmicky yoshi player 3-0 recently, and is completely hopeless against armada. 3rd place tops.

I think it's because it's hard to get reads on scarflard because he's just throwing out random stuff, while M2K knows exactly what he wants to do.

just wondering

i watched that smash documentary on youtube and noticed no one using him
>>
>>252510824
Yes
>>
>>252510734
But that only makes it easier to win. Random= a lot of stupid choices must be made, hence you just wait for the stupid choices to be made and then punish them. M2K is harder to beat because he knows the best choice and usually picks them. Except he fucking chokes all the time and that's why he loses.

Did m2k get his controller back yet? I wonder what his new excuse will be for EVO

M2K doesn't choke he just loses interest very easily due to autism.

>>252511084
I think armada has a pocket young link for having a chance against jiggs.
>>
>>252511004
Nope. Still Mango, even though he doesn't play Falco any more. The guy gets in the habit of practising REALLY hard for a month, wins a sub-national, and gets spanked at a national. Nigga needs to keep his cards to his chest or learn to adapt during the tournaments. You couldn't count the amount of times Mango made that losers bracket comeback, beating the person who sent him there. PP has to do that kind of shit before I can take him seriously. For now, he seems almost gimmicky in his playstyle, in that it takes a fucking MONTH for the metagame to move on without him.

He tends to get down on himself if he loses a match or sees something he's not used to and can't handle the crowd cheering against him. He's definitely a lot slower to adapt than any f the other top players.

The metagame is has come a long way since Armada's reign. Nowadays only spacies have been coming out on top. So far this year Mango has been beating Armada where it counts while Armada was beating him at less big events. I do hope he comes out on top over Mango just for him, the notoriety of Peach winning in modern times is just a plus.

Matchups and mindgames don't mean shit when the person you are facing is on a totally different level. If that was the case Hbox wouldn't be as good as he is since jiggs is shit in the current meta but he still rapes any spacie not named m2k/mango.

Yoshi IMO is a pretty good character. Hard to use and definitely has downsides, but if you become a true wizard with egg-throwing, that shit racks damage up and catches people off guard all the time. Add in being heavy, and high-powered smashes, I think he's more than "okay." Amsa proved that he could surprise ppl with Yoshi, and I've been doing that to my friends for years.
>>
>>252514571
People are starting to figure out his yoshi somewat already. I watched the $20 MM west and Amsa had an it was a close set but you started to notice that westballz was adapting to the shitty gimmicks yoshi has. AMSA is an amazing player but yoshi is gonna hold him back sooner or later.

Armada himself completely shits on most of his losing character matchups, with the exception of Hungrybox Puff. At CEO Armada got put into losers by Mango, but at Grand Finals he won like 6-1 against Mango.

>>
leffen spanks pp
>>
>>252511880
He also makes weird choices that stem from his autism. According to what Scar said at KoC4, he'll pick characters that match up best to others statistically, but if that character loses, he makes the connection that that person's character is always going to lose to his character. So he switches to compensate, rather than change tactics or approach differently with the same character.

They don't call him the robot for nothing.

Naw evo will be amazing for him. 2/3 sets doesn't allow most people to see/adapt to the yoshi gimmicks. MLG sucked for him becuase winning 3/5 sets is super hard when your character relies on gimmicks. After this though people will train for him and than it will be over.

He says that fox/falco don't really fit his playstyle. M2K doesn't have explosive techskill like hax or Mango. He's very consistent but he can't do crazy fast shit. So he realies on gimps and setups. Marth/Shiek are basically gimp masters and flowcharty as hell so they suit his playstyle.

>>252516396
He mains Fox who is Fox, Marth who is great against Space Animals and any character over mid weight, and Sheik who is pretty much the reason why so many characters are in low tiers. He doesn't need Falco to get optimum coverage.

Notice though, characters that have weird air characteristics he struggles with. Peach is floaty but has all the junk moves with float cancels and whatever that trick him, and he got railed by Yoshi who is heavy as shit despite his floaty, fucked up jumps and has a bunch of weird exclusive defensive options. Its like his brain can't process things that are too random or unorthodox for him to respond too.
>>
>>252516965
Falco is much less technical than Fox and M2K does have a pretty decent pocket Fox I would probably rank in the top 5. If Hungrybox can have a decent Falco I'm pretty sure M2K can, especially seeing how he considers Falco to be the best character.

At the level he plays falco requires just as much techskill as fox to compete. He just doesn't like how spacies award smart offensive play which he can't do. He's like Armada in that if he loves having an insane punish game. Even his fox is super punish game heavy compared to other foxes.

Give him time, his adaption rate is stupid low to new tech and tricks. He would get raped by Mango on a regular basis back in the day just because Mango would throw out moves that were efficient yet not the most effective. He plays perfect until the point where shit doesn't compute with him and he starts making mistakes.

>>252518708
in a competitive fighting game, the winner cannot change their character if they win

no matter what, letting the winner repick results in the loser being screwed over because their adaptations to the previous character are rendered meaningless

it's insipid and favors the winner unconditionally

>>
>>252519553
>it's a non issue that the winner has an unconditional countermeasure preventing counterpicks
how is competitive smash meant to be taken seriously?
>>
>>252518921
Thats like banning the use of various fighting styles in MMA or real street fighting. If you can change it up on the fly, you should be allowed to do so in a video game.
>>
>>252519556
Dude still shit talks like crazy and has the biggest fake ego ever. It's actually kinda hilarious though.
>>
>>252518921
It's not unconditional at all. The winner selects character first, then the loser can pick the character he bests thinks counters that character. It's an advantage for the loser.

Take Armada vs Hungrybox for example. Armada picks Young Link because it counters Jigglypuff, then Hbox picks Fox because it counters Young Link. If Armada picks Peach, Hbox would pick Jiggly, so Armada is essentially locked to an inferior character.
>>
>>252519734
You're not thinking about this like smash, Fox, Falco, Marth, Jiggs and Shiek are all fairly balanced within one another. You only see really solid counter picks on any character weaker than Falcon or Peach.
>>
>>252518921
The winner has to pick his character after the loser
>>
>>252519556
yeah because the poorfag needs money and wanted to be able to play smash in his own country again.

I hope Hax never places within the top 5 again as long as he lives. Dude's a sell out.

>>252519950
Take any M2K match where he changes character from one top tier to another, simply because it permits him to wipe the opponent's adjustments clean off. Going from Shiek to Marth after WINNING is by no means advantageous to the loser.
>>
>>252520490
why doesn't lord place?
he's so stylish
>>
>>252520631
You can't blame him though. Falcon is really shitty compared to the rest of the top tier. Peach atleast has good tools and a good recovery. Everyone and their mom has anti-falcon tech.
>>
>>252520726
Style doesn't win you matches. Falcon relies way too much on reads and unless you can read minds you're not winning a major tourney nowadays with Falcon unless it's in the midwest.
>>
>>252520846
Then work on new tech, don't just throw in the towel because everyone else has you figured out and you want to play with the safest character. Also before Armada, everyone had Peach figured out. You just have to be committed enough.
>>
>>252520658
Why shouldn't the player who has mastered several characters have an advantage over a player who hasn't? Also, switching character forces both players to adapt to the new match-up. You might have a better match up but you probably wont play as good because you keep switching.

This literally only applies to M2K. It doesn't give anyone an advantage since the loser could choose a different character to make it just as hard for the winner.

Mango's jiggs is shit tier now. He doesn't use her or even like playing her. Hbox and Soft are the last jigg warriors left.

You basically have to use jiggs like that in order to win though in the current meta. Mango pulled out his offensive jiggs at apex and it got booped by M2K's fox. Can't blame Mango for dropping the original brawl character.

Ken is definitely not as good in singles. Still a solid doubles player though.

Surprised he came back to the melee scene to be honest with you, but its cool that he did and hopefully he shakes the rust off and takes his play to higher than it ever was before.

Too bad that is unlikely. He's almost 28 and is not autistic so...

I was in a twitch chat with someone who apparently housed Armada at one point while he was here in the states. He said all he wanted to do was play Smash. He'd ask Armada if he wanted to do anything and he'd be like "I don't know" and wouldn't decide. He'd finally just ask him if he wanted to invite his Smash friends over and Armada'd say "okay that's great".

I accept your opinion, but I'll tell you why it's wrong:

Hax never managed to get more than 7th in major events.
Axe has a shit tier character. Maybe the player is good, but no amount of mind game will overcome the fact that some characters just have better everything.
Fly Amanita doesn't wobble. It's his weakness.
Lucky is going to SD about 4 times in a set. So no fucking question!

exactly.
The casuals though to be fair has been increasing dramatically since Smash 4 was announced.

Anybody that joined in mid 2013 is basically a casual that posts prolly 50+ times a day in the Smash 4 section, most likely in either the ridley threads or character predictions.

anything that people can play competitively is competitive, it's the meaning of the word.

Just use some memes. Reddit and /v/ has almost the exact same meme culture nowadays, so don't take any meme, take memes that you are sure are limited to /v/ or 4chan. It's actually hard to find some. Perhaps you could mention some popular tripcoders.

Who do you think will win? Is anyone looking strong enough to beat the 5 gods?
>>
>>252510992
No, but he can memorize. And we will. He studies players, he'll study Amsa. He probably didn't find it necessary until now.
>>
>>252515025
the only thing that truly makes Yoshi good is his ability to parry. If you could just read minds, it would nullify an insane amount of approaches.
>>
>>252557675
honestly, depending on how he plays I think Leffen is the one with the best odds *regardless of bracket.* Axe and Amsa both have bad shots at Armada but Leffen has demonstrated he can win that player matchup. If he plays sharp and brutal he might be able to catch Mango off guard, and if he plays cautiously he won't get gimped by M2K. He's demonstrated he can beat PPMD and HBox so that requires a repeat performance.

If Axe matches up against Mango, Hbox, and PPMD he has okay odds but he still has no guarantees against a lower level player pool.

Amsa... I don't think he's *personally* at a level to beat the top 5 for real. He has issues with mixups in neutral and sometimes he becomes too dedicated to his tricks rather than simple play. you see it when he's fishing for parries and the other guy slowly attacks his position to mess up his timing, when he could just WD back into f-smash or d-tilt or something as a basic mixup.

plus he needs to be a bit ballsier with egg-lay, I think, and it would earn him more mileage with his other aerials, force more rolls and dodges, stuff like that. beyond not choking, that's what it will take for him to have a shot, but IDK if he's suddenly going to realize all that by this weekend.

For victory.... i'm one of those bitches who says "it can go either way." if I had to numerate it, currently I'm putting it at odds of something like 50/35/15 with Mango, Armada, PPMD.

personally rooting for Armada (besides Axe)

Yes. If the player from Losers Finals wins the first set of Grand Finals, they "reset the bracket" and play a second set. You've got to lose two sets to be out of the tournament and both players in GF would've only lost one at that point.

Wave dashing isn't a glitch, and the glitches that are in the game are rarely used, since it's the low-tier characters that have the most easily executable ones. Also, the game's still fun and technical without them, although I do agree that it wouldn't be as fast-paced.

As someone who mains fox I can say that I play him because I like playing him. Before I even knew about tiers or tech I played fox and Falco, ironically those characters are now my mains. Some people play fox because he's good, others play him because they like him. Either way people who bitch about fox probably suck seeing as he isn't even top tier until you get to uppermid-high level play. Marth, Shiek, and Falco are all top tier in mid-low level play so it doesn't matter to you anyway.

Anyone who is even semi-literate in smash and has watched m2k play before knows he was playing like shit. You'd be playing like shit too if people were constantly yelling shit in your ear about how much you suck and that you should go fuck yourself. I don't care what people say but that definitely hinders your performance, especially if you have autism. m2k is infinitely better than both leffen and aMSa,

>>252589415
Players back than had way less tech skill than today. Even scrub foxes in locals have crisp movement nowadays. Ken got better recently but the metagame has changed way too much. He still had problems with good spacie pressure. He could get real good if practiced with actual good players instead of fucking the Crimson Blur and his brother.

Both

There are now no-name players better than what were top level players in ken's time, They had a lot of the mind games, but none of the tech skill or consistency you see today.

And yeah, Ken didn't play for real for a very long time. You can see the rust falling off now, but he's got a long way to go.

Anyone who vouches for Ken in the year 2014 is some fucking newfag who came in from the smash documentary.

Do people even actually like Mango?

I'm not a tourneyfag, so I don't really follow the scene. But I was watching the Twitch stream of Kings of Cali this past weekend on a whim. After the grand finals, they interviewed Armada, then Mango. This is probably due to him being a foreigner, but Armada seemed really humble and respectful. Mango just seemed like an overconfident douche with a huge ego.
>>

Player vs player matchups are a important part of high level smash. You can't just say "x beats y and y beats z therefore x beats z". It just doesn't work like that.

I didn't know there was such vehement hatred for the dude on the internet. I should have seen it coming.

Went to a Protomen concert back in highschool and in the hotel that was hosting the concert (it was a 2 day concert) there was a small Smash Bros tourney for like, literally $50 or so.

I don't enter the tourney ($5 entry fee bruh), but sit down to play some casuals. This grumpy pasty motherfucker sits next to me, proceeds to pick Metaknight and absolutely wrecks me. I jokingly suggest that he's pretty good or that I'm really bad (making small talk, banter, human stuff). He pauses the game, looks me directly in the eye and incredulously asks "You don't know who I AM?!"

I thought he was joking so I laughed it off, but he kept the game paused so I hesitantly ask "Uh, no. Should I?"

"I'm Mew2King."

>awkward silence, I had not heard of him at that point in my life

"Um, ok."

"M2K? I'm a professional."

I repeat, "Um, ok."

Apparently he was super salty because he'd driven 4 hours to this $50 backwash nobody tourney and was 30 minutes late to register so they didn't let him in. Sorry erratic writing prose im a bit tipsy.
>>
>>252590152
Mango is an overconfident douche with a huge ego. It's like sports, some people like athletes like that, some people don't. The community is split on him.

I like him and that's just classic Mango, but I've liked him for years so I've grown used to it, but I can see why that would be offputting to people.
>>
>>252589917
I agree with you but M2K problem isn't the fact that he isn't better than most players its just that he can't adapt to things and chokes in those moments. Was the heckling that bad too? Fuck Socal than. Than can suck Mango's dick more while PP wins another KoC.

I doubt there's any real hatred for him inside the actual competitive community though, as opposed to people whining about competitive players on the internet.
>>
>>252590430
If you go to a tournament in Socal you gotta prepare for that shit.
>>
>>252590637
No. That's wrong. According to a lot of people there as well as armada and m2k himself it was pretty terribad.
>>
As long as I get to see the everloving SHIT beat out of Leffen it doesn't matter who wins.
>>
>>252590185
Sometimes upsets happen though in even smash. Most likely M2K will beat Leffen, not denying that.
I should said that Leffen has a chance of beating M2K in evo. M2K started getting over his mental walls this year and finally beat Hbox and Armada in a long time.
>>
>>252590280
I've met the guy and he doesn't actually have his head up his ass like that. Also he gets rides everywhere so there'd be at least one other decent player there for him to play against. If anything, your story should have been about him asking everyone in the venue to play $1 money matches.
>>
>>252590846
The game should be who is the better player, not who is the better player plus who can handle the most shit talk.
>>
>>252591128
homefield advantage is a thing that is real and exists
>>
>>252591003
Oh, upsets definitely happen.

I would welcome. Even from fucking Leffen.
>>
>>252591224
I guess its a good thing m2k lives in socal and aMSa is from Japan now isn't it shithead?
>>
>>252591085
Why would I make up such a mediocre story? That shit happened, it's my only experience with the guy and he was admittedly in a shit mood. But he was definitely surprised and pretentious at the fact I didn't know him
>>
>>252591314
m2k is from east coast
aMSa is a fan favorite
what do you think is going to happen in california?
>>
>>252591349
He probably assumed you were a part of the community. The only encounter I had at him was at a chicago weekly and he was nice.
>>
>>252591314
They still consider him an east coast player, just like they still consider mango socal

fuck knows why

Also the really bad heckling happened during his match with fiction i think
>>
>>252591504
You can literally hear someone yell "Fuck you Jason" and "You fucking suck" in the m2k vs aMSa video.
>>
>>252518881

He's half Korean, half Swedish.

I can't imagine how that happened, but it did.
>>
>>252591605
people were drunk. he was in hostile territory. shit happens. get over it.
>>
>>252591503
Eh. Everyone has those days. But you only get to make a first impression once yo
>>
>>252590280
well he's got aspergers and I assume that story is from when he was younger, I don't find it that weird if being godly at the game got to his head specially if he was in his teens, I mean we've all acted like assholes in that way sometime in our lives now add to that being tourney good and being autistic, no reason to hate him forever...

He seems pretty chill now, hope he's got friends and people friendly towards him on these tourneys
>>
>>252591504
>They still consider him an east coast player, just like they still consider mango socal
Because that's how it works.
>>
>>252590653
>not playing on dolphin with upgraded graphics and netplay
>>
>>252591762
I'm over it, just explaining why he wasn't playing well. People shouldn't be excused for being shit heads just because their drunk. That type of mindset is cancer.
>>
>>252592064
That still is irrelevant to how well he was playing. Athletes have drunk guys heckling at them all the time.
>>
>>252542315

PP doesn't practice conventionally, he merely reads people.

If the guy combined both methods he'd be top tier. The only reason others don't do it is because none of them share his interest in psychology.
>>
>>252555634
>Perhaps you could mention some popular tripcoders.
How can you be such a massive faggot?

>>252555038
Could you say something like: "Trips are for fags!"

>>252578036
>I don't understand why some people are like suggesting you to avoid mentioning /v/,
Kill yourself.
>>
>>252591762
The heckling still makes part of the smash community look some what bad. Ken talked about how the shit talking was one the big reasons why he quit the early melee scene in the documentary. While modern melee players don't shit talk like back than it's still fucked up that you can be heckled that badly.
>>
>>252592147
The guy is autistic. Stop being an idiot and realize what you're saying.
>>
>>252581817

he cut it off to look more aryan

it makes him more imposing.
>>
>>252592239
Isn't he going for his doctorate in psychology?
>>
>>252592723

Yes

he is a prime example at just how much education can affect competitive gaming.
>>
>>252592246
>Nooooo don't ever mention my sikrit klub
>only posts vitriolic replies
After you, shitposter.
>>
>>252592365
It builds character. A commentator a long time ago said something like this: East Coast tries to outplay you and win, West Coast tries to brutalize you until you cave.
