"BECAUSE THERE BASICALLY IS NONE."

I'm pretty sure I still covered the most ground. Hitting block is not that good of an impressive technical ability.

itt, GT plays the role of grumpy old man.

a grumpy old man, that we all have the utmost respect for :)

Haha, I actually love Luigi. I mained him for a time in Melee, but his recovery was just so bad.

QFT

ARGH, WHEN I FINISH MY STUPID TERM PROJECTS, I AM PLAYING SO MUCH MELEE!

guys, i have a problem

there's someone in my immediate smash crew who take the game entirely too seriously. he's good, in fact, really good--he came in seventh at a recent tourney in ohio, pretty big with about 60+ people.

anyway, a few months ago we had a small tourney which i co-organized and happen to win, and he drew a fuss about how it was rigged. suffice to say, it wasn't, we even played three times and i beat him 2/3. we had another tourney this saturday and we played three matches--his MK vs my DDD on brinstar, his diddy vs. DDD on smashville, and diddy vs. DDD on FD.

i won the first match, and he said his controller was busted and making him glide when he didn't want to, even though it belonged to the guy that ended up winning the tourney. whatever, controller johns.

i won the second by being a very, very gay DDD. i was trying to be aggressive and was walking right into 50%+ combos from him with the naners, so i switched my game up and camped the moving platform. he had no clue what to do, so i won again. he complains that there should've been a time limit at the tourney, well guess what, there wasn't. no johns.

i won the third, too. diddy vs. DDD is a nightmare matchup on FD, but i just played super defensive and gimped him once or twice and beat him in a really close match, came down to a tipped bair as he just flew into my range.

point is, he's taken it very badly. he apparently hates me as a person now, whines about us making lighthearted fun of his usage of MK, says he's a much better player than i am simply because he goes to real tourneys (even though i've won 5/6 matches that we've had and he's never, ever beaten my main), he even went home and CRIED after this tourney.

he's constantly bugging me for money matches of ridiculous importance, things like $10 and $20 on one match, like he's got something huge to prove. i don't think he's a bad player, but he's got these deep-rooted insecurities that will not be calmed until he beats me just once. all of my encounters with him are incredibly uncomfortable because he doesn't tell ME any of this, only our mutual buddies

anyway, i have never ever known this shit actually happens. this is so cartoonish and i am sorry to say that i have no clue how to deal with it.

I hope they decide to keep Brawl's airdodge. IMO wavedashing is a mechanic that should stay in Melee. I'm also very interested in the hacking going on though -- any word on if they have managed to find a way around Nintendo's latest update (for those of us who haven't installed things yet)?

Yes, they found a way around the latest update. I think the new version simply can be installed anyway and you don't even have to do anything extra.

Luigi dittos are gay. Really.

Also, stop copying all of my mains.

Honestly, I suggest you just ignore it, and continue to beat him in friendlies until he either beats you or realizes that no one gives a damn. For gods sake, don't mm him $20-$30. This isn't marvel :(

i think it is the ultmate test of skill to face the bananas on fd with a character that takes up a twentieth of the stage, much more to win that match.

but i have a friend like this, who bitches about controllers and whatnot

but he wins most of the time that faggot. he keeps using fag characters like toon link and Zamus and i chug along with my low tier lucas eating his bullshit SO HES THE BITCH HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAA

yeah honestly, i've got a three year anniversary/birthday/christmas to worry about, fuck a huge MM

and i know that if i lose (which i very well could, like i said, he ISN'T BAD), i'd never ever hear the end of it.

it's just weird because everyone else in our group is really level-headed about this sort of thing (except for one who is all 'oh man, i'm so tired, i didn't sleep last night lolol' every single time he loses) , i have no idea where this aggression is coming from?

the first time we ever played, i was still a lucas main and he played IC's. i told him he had a really good IC game, he said i was a good lucas and we were fine. then everything got messed up at that first tourney?

dude takes this shit way too seriously

i dont think he should go calling something rigged when you definitely beat him

just ignore him

he sounds kinda crazy if he is going to go mm crazy on you

i get mm every now and then at tournies but those are out of respect

this dude is out ot prove a point that isn't needed to even be proven

i would start actually cheating against him to piss him off

or play really really not seriously. or refuse to play unless its in 75m, then try to throw him into the sides the entire time

You know what really cheeses people like that off? Agree to play them, like it's some huge big thing like, "Ok you can get your revenge" blah blah blah, then completely throw the match. Don't even bother playing hard. Talk to your friend and look away from the screen constantly. Play with one hand. Make them see that if they're gonna be a whiny bitch about playing you, that you aren't even going to dignify it with an effort playing them.

hahahah, i love being lucas against ZSS

what i typically do is bumrush her with shorthopped nairs and PSI magnets. my friend plays a dsmash-heavy ZSS (in fact, he's the one that won the tournament mentioned earlier) and i typically just jump right into his dsmashes with the magnet; they heal me and knock him away. switch up the nair and magnet and he'll have no idea which one is coming next, making it difficult to punish you

keep in mind this will never, ever work at the pro level, but it's good for pissing off the ZSS for a few rounds!

EDIT - i would agree to play him, but i'm not throwing a match that's worth 10 bucks. i like the idea of not taking the match seriously, i might just do that :x

wut dsmashes heal lucas?!!?!!

and your right i didnt nair at all that match...no clue why

did you like my music?

you cant possibly still be flustered after hearing that song

EDIT: Dervish, whats also funny is if you stand up while playing, walk behind him, and take your hand off the controller, timing it so that he kills you. While he kills you, you take your nuts out and put them on his shoulder.

it gets them every time

i didn't use nair as lucas a lot when i played him as a main, but it's essential when i play him now as my second/third...one thing i'm working on incorporating is full-hopped dairs, they basically suck someone up for the entire four hits and if you DI back, you can get away without being hurt. it's real nice. also if you can and if you don't use the c-stick, try out b-sticking...it's really neat :D

i like how you twig'd her items back at her, i do the same thing to my buddy. learn what he does with his items (most ZSS' i talk to have a set plan with them) and beat him up for it.

anyway yeah, ZSS' dsmashes heal him, so just rush him with both those moves and see if it works. usually ZSS' tend to either stun gun or dsmash when you get close, and surprise surprise, BOTH HEAL HIM :o

thanks. i already knew about the column dair (my little name for it), but the downside is that it must be started from right next to the opponent in order to suck them up. my fav is the sh nair to full hop nair, especially if they have vibrate on, because it annoys the hell out of them.

also if you take your balls out =D

Yeah ZSS's dsmash heals Lucas. The Dsmash is actually like like a little projectile- it doesn't cause any hitlag for Zamus(the lag for both characters when you connect with a move), on top of it's other weird little properties.

which is why she can follow up with another attack so quickly. i never made that connection before

learn something new everyday...

to spike with lucas with the bair, do i have to sweet spot it when he's at the "parallel to the ground" angle? (sorry i just took a midterm so my brain is sorta dead)

and, what's b-sticking?
