This thread is for sharing any videos related to Super Smash Bros, as well as discussing the competitive side of the Smash Bros series. Wanna talk about your favorite Melee players? Wanna share that radical Pichu combo video you just made? Wanna complain about Etika's hairdo? This is the thread to do so!

 

So to start this off, did you watch any of Melee or Smash 4 at Evo this year? What did you think?

Awesome, very glad we're getting a separate thread for this. Melee Evo finals were bittersweet. I was rooting for HBox the whole time, but it can't be denied that Armada is one of the best and most deserving players in the scene.

 

LEFFEN IS 2 OLD THO BRO

I watched both.

For Smash 4, the grand finals were boring and anticlimactic (in my opinion). I'm really happy that Abadango made it to 4th though, he's awesome.

Melee, I wanted HBox to win, but whatever, Armada also kinda plays as Peach so he was pretty much the other player I would be satisfied with winning. I wish Axe beat Leffen, but he got beat by Plup's Samus, so, ha. Mooninite is awesome for playing as Kirby, even though he lost, but that Falco was a cocky little turd and I'm glad Mooninite slammed him as Captain Falcon.

Apparently some 13 year old came third in Project M as Game and Watch. That's pretty cool, even though only, like, five people entered.

EVO's Melee stream was watched by a lot more people than SSB4's stream. That's astonishing for me.

 

I can't comment on any other things since I don't follow closely those competitive scenes.

I was really impressed by Hungrybox's performance. I'm surprised that he's been able to keep the Jigglypuff camping strat alive for so long, especially against a quickly adapting community. He said in a pre-EVO 'interview' that he'd be fine with losing as long as he stopped Mang0 from winning, and took down the Swedes. While he only took down 1 on the Swedish players, he took down Mang0 and beat Dr PP too, so he's accomplished his EVO goals for the most part. Before EVO, he said he was going to put Melee on the backburner and focus on more important things in life, so it's great that he got to go out with a bang.

I always think of melee as being a bigger spectacle to watch because it has a lot more technical stuff in the game than compared to other smash titles. I did watch GF for sm4sh and was quite surprised how fast they were moving their characters, and then saw zero use choose diddy kong on the character select screen, and knew he already won because of that jank. 

 

 

As Mr.Hatty simply put it; "Smash 4 is fun to play, but melee is fun to watch."

So a friend of mine has actually been getting into the local tournament scene where I live. He challenged me to some online matches of Sm4sh and absolutely wrecked me every single time. One of the worst of them he decided to upload as a replay to YouTube:

I'm sorry Zane but that is one of the most basic Ness's I have ever seen

I didn't watch much of EVO 2015 at all, only the Melee matches with Ken from Survivor (SephirothKen/LiquidKen).  I was really impressed with him getting 13th because he hadn't been very important on the competitive seen since 2007/2008

Obviously Mr. Lz is amazing, but God damn, Mr. Game and Watch looks so frustrating to play against.

 

He is because with the lack of animation on his attacks, it's hard to tell what attack happens when, and not many people main him so it's in general difficult to know the matchup well.

And also his hitboxes linger for much longer than most of the cast, that throws a lot of people off.
