    I "advertized" my Warlock Punch tweaks one time too many on official Minus subforums.

    I think I'll make a single thread in Off-Topic with all my customizations in it, and just keep it all in there...

    I was rooting for Mikeneko since he is my favourite Japanese player. Came down pretty much to the last hit so w/e. Also you can call me MS or LB so you don't get carpal tunnels :p

    Wait, banned like temporarily or banned forever?

    Because if its forever, but they're not making you stay off then whats the point of the ban other than it makes you a little harder to contact for everyone else.

    My main account is only banned until the 30th, but I didn't want to stall this tourney, so I made this alt. account.

    Lol I mean, I'm glad and all, but ban dodging is not really something you're supposed to do on a forum and all. But really I don't blame you, there's not even like ground rules for posting here. Plus really you should have gotten an infraction, not a straight up ban (unless you were warned like 5 times not to and still did)

    First match was my Kirby vs. his Charizard. Second match ended up being a Kirby ditto...

    lol Glyph sandbagging. Serious question: Glyph, would you play your ROB against me game 1? Would you play it game 2 if you lost game 1 in a Bo3?

    My Charizard and Kirby are serious characters. I'm not sandbagging when I use them, to the point where I beat people with them harder than I do with ROB. Same thing goes for Ness.

    Thor, for Falco I wouldn't even touch ROB. Not gunna dive into that blast of a matchup, no matter how confident I am with ROB. I'd probably go with Ness and pray to god you couldn't catch me offstage.

    Shoot for Wednesday night. Same amount of matches this time so hopefully we can move through them just as fast (but I do recognize its not a weekend anymore)

    I'm liking these brackets...lots of familiar names I haven't had a chance to play against yet. Can't wait to see how strong everyone is.

    Wait wut? I always thought you were just kind of sandbagging whenever we played...

    And why would you not go Kirby against my Falco? Do you prefer the Ness Falco MU or something?

    Kirby's bair is (I think) just or almost as good as Falco's, so it's not as easy as you'd think...Falco SH bair doesn't really work either, since Kirby can duck it (I think) and SH bair him instead.

    I wouldn't call it sandbagging, I play to win every game I play. That being said, I do play better against harder opponents than I do less experienced people. Not a conscious choice, just how my playstyle works I guess

    As for not going Kirby, I prefer Ness' mobility to get around things and down b to discourage too much laser spam. Kirby is small, but has trouble getting around a lot of what falco can throw out since he's a little less agile

    I need to play your Ness more. We don't have any good Nesses where I live and you saw last night how I handled him.

    Hopefully I'm not "less experienced" when we play again (I know I've gotten better at Melee, and since I mean not only Melee tech but some fundamental stuff, I hope it carries over).

    I meant by sandbagging that you weren't choosing your best character, not that you were playing down to my level (though you might've been I guess).

    Kirby can literally duck reflector and nearly all of Falco's lasers (and I think all), and can advance by using dtilt if Falco is using a lot of lasers. Or do you do all this but still feel Ness is the better choice? Just curious because I think Kirby is a worse MU for Falco than Ness (although this may be false).

    Flaco just bairs everyone. He's a jerk that way.

    Tough to say. I do think that Kirby is worse on falco though. Less agile in the air and his upb is super punishable. Just run up and dair above him and he dies. If he has jumps, he will try to get back and you can smack him with another aerial by falling off the ledge and he's dead. Ness is indeed safer in the air compared to Kirby. The fact that falco can't approach with lasers anymore also makes it harder to approach ness because psynet.

    Depends on the kirby's playstyle. Personally I like to keep in the air for my approaches and drop in when I see openings, so the whole crouching thing doesn't really come into play much for me.

    Oh, and just a heads up owo might be replacing Jomo for this tourney. Jomo dropped out, and I had forgotten I had a sub I could put in. Should he agree to play, I'll have that round one match play out as normal and keep the bracket otherwise the same.

    It baffles me that players will choose to do something other than duck under things if they can. I mean, if you could choose to be a pancake whenever you want, why aren't you being a pancake right now?

    Speaking of stupid things, am I the only dumbass around here that likes trying to grab pikachu or jigglypuff out of a fully charged sideb or nuetral B? I get huge kick out of it cuz it's unexpected and it is OBVIOUSLY a fair trade and I can do it 30ish percent of the time but I usually end up dying for some reason.

    I'm probably the Kirby that dtilts under Falco's Reflector/lasers that Thor is talking about. Being a pancake is the best man.

    I used to grab Jiggs and Sonic out of their sideB in vBrawl because of Kirby's grab range when I was super laid back. Haven't tried it in Minus though.
