  1. Still as overcast as ever.

    People actually use Greninja? I mean, outside of Japan?

    Don't think anybody will argue with that top ten.

    Really though, why does there need to be so many subtiers? Are there really ten dramatic differences of metagame success that warrant them, or is it just something the Smash fandom has an odd obsession with?

    Greninja gets pretty good rep even outside of Japan. He's been in top 8 of majors the past two weeks, 3rd at Eclipse and 5th at Canada Cup. He also has pretty good regional results and a number of solid reps (Venia, Some, Oisifuto, Istudying, Elexiao, DarkAura, Gibus, Stroder, Shinjoebi, Eddy, Kero). All these people either make top 8 at nationals or win regionals. That's way better than most other characters can say.

    Yeah...those S-A- tiers aren't surprising. Although, despite not being surprised that Cloud is ranked highly, I am surprised he was put over Sheik.

    Well you see, Cloud is 10x easier to pocket so that leads to an inflation of his results. Solo Cloud results at the high level are kinda rare for a top tier tho.

  2. In 2016, the only Nintendo game I bought so far is Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. While they were fun, they didn't really stand out to me. 2015 was similar, but at least the novelty of Smash 4 carried well into it (and still does in 2016). Pokemon is a given and honestly might salvage the year. Otherwise, anyone feel like they're outgrowing Nintendo or is Nintendo just going backwards with all these gimmicks and low difficulty games? Is Nintendo getting old? Are you optimistic, pessimistic, or somewhere in the middle (ew neutral opinions)?

  3. Be careful choosing to pick up a character when you see its rep do something cool once or twice. Ryo beating Abadango's Mewtwo is certainly impressive, but doesn't necessarily translate to him having a good MU on Mewtwo or even being viable in upper metagame. He could have been thrown off by lack of MU inexperience (from what I've seen ROy doesn't seem very popular in Japan either) or just been completely outplayed. If you're gonna stay local anyway it doesn't matter, main who you want.

    I do think Roy can be a valuable counterpick though, especially since people don't know how to play against him.

  4. (Play this video while reading this for max pleasure)

    So they're finally here, performing for you
    If you know the words, you can join in too
    Put your hands together, if you want to clap
    As we take you through this Waha rap

    Waha! Waha Kife!!


    (Knife, fearless leader who kicks ass and takes names)

    He's the leader of the bunch, you know him well
    He's finally back to kick some tail
    His razor edge can space very well
    If he stabs ya, it's gonna hurt
    He's sharper, faster, and deals more knockback too
    He's the first member of the Waha crew

    Waha! Waha Kife!
    Waha! Waha Kife is here!


    (Jedi, second in command and level-headed contrast to the leader)

    This Waha's got style, so listen up dudes
    He can shrink his hurtbox, to suit his mood
    He's quick and nimble when he needs to be
    He can stall in the air and climb up ledges
    If you choose him, you'll not choose wrong
    With a shorthop and airdodge, he's one cool Waha

    Waha! Waha Kife!


    (Comet, brainy researcher who takes the most logical route and does the research)

    He has no style, he has no grace
    This Waha has a funny face
    He can perfect pivot when he needs to
    And stretch his arms out, just to grab you
    Inflate himself just like a balloon
    This crazy Waha just digs this tune

    Waha! Waha Kife!
    Waha! Waha Kife is here!


    (Right Here, the quiet one in the group but with possibly OP powers?)

    He's back again and about time too
    And this time he's in the mood
    He can fly real high with his amazing edgeguards
    With his projectiles out, he's one tough Waha Camper
    He'll make you smile when he plays his tune
    But Waha Enemies beware 'cause he's after you

    Waha! Waha Kife!


    (Carmine Sword, the passionate romantic who lets his heart make the decisions)

    Finally, he's here for you
    It's the last member of the Waha crew
    This Waha's so strong, it isn't funny
    Can make a Waha Enemy cry out for mummy
    Can make hard punishes with relative ease
    Makes roll reads seem such a breeze
    He may move slow, he can't recover high
    But this Waha's one hell of a guy

    C'mon Nightmare, take it to the fridge!

    Falchions, Ragnells, Levin Swords
    Yatos, Master Swords, Sealed Blades and Buster Swords
    Ahh yeah!!

    Know and fear this name: We are the Wahas !!!!!!!

  5. What is the contingency plan if people drop/go inactive like they always do mid tourney? Its not such a big deal when its 1 vs 1 but when your part of a crew that you get drafted for, it really sucks to lose a member partway through. I think we should allow people to continue signing up as substitutes just in case. And those of you who don't think they have the time/attention to see this all the way through should probably drop before drafting begins.

  6. Ness is a very easy to pick up character, but suffers a lot a the top level due to low mobility, range, and terrible recovery. I think he's still top tier in doubles because of his kill potential, powerful aerials, and healing capability (even though it got nerfed). A lot of people were saying early on that Lucas was inferior to Ness. I actually believe the opposite, where Lucas will potentially perform better at top level than Ness (its starting to show with Taiheta's results and Fow's results dropping/inactivity).

  7. If you want this to be interesting you should probably vote for captains by skill. Otherwise someone like Ice could end up recruiting me or some other high seed (just an example) and make it really unbalanced. Though I can understand voting for people based on leadership skill in which case Jedi or Eukyld are great choices. I will vote based on the former though.

    I'm not too familiar with everyone's skill, but I ended voting for Dotty, Ice, Aura Wolf, and MrStardustRincon (have no idea how good he is, never played).

  8. How well they do against bosses mostly. General enemies are pretty easy. Kiria is just OP because of her Kawaii ability and elemental coverage, on top of hitting hard. Damage output is the largest factor though. One exception is Ellie who hits slightly harder than Itsuki, but her movepool is very eh with one element covered by a locked party member and the other element covered by the top two characters. Unique access to bows is nice, but it rarely matters over Force skills.

    But yeah, all characters are usable. Just some better than other.

  9. I dunno, the thing is the entire tournament gets held up until everyone has played their set in each round, which is pretty unfourtunate. Just have to see how it progresses I guess.

    Easy solution. Give everyone a week deadline for each round and dq the player who is not available despite the other player actively seeking a match. Players can save/screenshot for proof if disputes occur. If both players have not done anything, both DQed or take a loss. At the end of the the week, automatically DQ/issue losses to any guilty parties so the round can end. Do not hold up any rounds unless its absolutely necessary and stay firm on this. TO can remind players individually, but with 20 people its a hassle for the TO to do and I would not expect a reminder even for my self. It's on you to keep updated/make time for the tourney, otherwise you can just take the loss. I did this not too long ago.

    Oh and make sure to update the thread title with deadlines as the rounds progress.
