This is a catch-all thread for discussion about competitive Super Smash Bros Melee. Tournaments, learning to play, discussing the meta, and so forth.
Super Smash Bros Melee was released in 2001 for the Nintendo Gamecube, and in most of the years since then it has seen its competitive community thrive. The Smash Brothers documentary is a great look at the history of the scene from the early years through Ken's famous reign, the dark years when the scene nearly died after Brawl's release, and the resurgence and rise of players like Mew2King, Mango, and Armada that are still dominant today. A sequel documentary is in the works that will pick up where that one left off, covering the more recent era. Just be aware it's a product of its time in terms of language and "edginess."
Learning to play? SSBM Tutorials youtube channel, formerly run by Kira, is a great resource with lots of tips. The linked playlist is a great starting point, going over the basics of getting started and fundamental tech to learn, and also includes Wak's "Advanced How to Play" videos.
Want to watch? When's Melee is now featured on MeleeStats and has tournaments for the weekend listed. And you can just check the list of Melee streams on Twitch.
We have/had a discord, but it is basically dead.
