Huge difference. I can immediately tell when someone is playing wireless. If your goal is to become competitive offline, then wireless isn't going to come close to simulating that kind of environment.
Well, I somehow managed to work my way, again, into the last qualifying finals for this thing! And this time I MADE SURE to not mess up my registration.It seems that my Discord-illiteracy has doomed me.
Remember how I mentioned two weekends ago how I qualified for the finals for my region in the Nintendo tournament? Turns out I was supposed to provide extra info about myself as of a week ago. Thing is, I tried to figure out if I had to do anything extra to make sure my registration was finalized, but I never received any direct help in that regard.
Or, at least, I didn’t think I did. Turns out that I was DM’ed on the 19th from one of the organizers who wanted to inquire about my info. I just simply never noticed because I almost never use Discord and could not tell apart a DM notification from a Discord group one.
I was also e-mailed, but I didn’t see the e-mail until now because it was filtered. I literally had to type “Nintendo” into the search bar to find it. I only did that because I had an ominous suspicion that something was wrong.
So now I’m basically trying to appeal to the organizers to let me get my registration done, since I did earnestly try to figure out how to do it and the waiting period between the this qualifier and the final is 2 weeks instead of 1 week like it is for the others.
I hope for the best here, but my expectations are rock-bottom. It’s just awful knowing I threw away a chance like this due to my own incompetency. Sure, there’s one more qualifier I can participate in, but even disregarding the jank ruleset my mental state is completely shattered right now. v_v
In all seriousness, this may not be obvious.
I would recommend going into smash mode one player, and do 4-player smash on level 7 or 8 (not the highest). Record your matches to see where your weaknesses are.Hey guysm. I need your advice.
Been playing online today and it has been nothing but losses. My GSP is at 90,000 and honestly I'm feeling pretty sucky right about now. Honestly I didn't think my skills were this bad.
The worst part is, the more I lose, the worse I feel and the worse my reflexes become. It is a vicious cycle.
For example, there was this Lucas that did nothing but spam pk fire and pk freeze... and he won. I mean, that hurts.
Guess I just need to vent a little. But any advice to getting better would be welcome.
Congrats to Poltergust for getting a spot in. Sorry that Tipster didn't.
Yup. Yoshi is top-tier for this because:
Bayo representation is pretty much dead now.I'm going to move on from the smash community. I’ve been thinking about how frustrated I’ve been getting with this game and the people in it for months and finally I realized I could just leave.
Every day I feel like this game wasn’t meant for me more and more. At first I thought I could make bayo work if I just stayed dedicated, 4 months later and a long story short it isn’t going to happen. Truly thought I could just go from top tier to top tier at the snap of my fingers but I guess in the end I actually did love bayo more than anyone else and switching was impossible.
The sudden influx of people who like watching me helped a lot at first but then I realized it’s just because I manage to win games with... her. Now I really just feel like a circus act when I play on stream, not a real competitor.
The main reason I want to leave though is the community. A year ago today I’d say “The hate is strong but I've made so many great friends who help me get past it..!"
But lately I'm realizing that shit is really not normal at all. Why am I supposed to just hold that? I never wanted smash to be a career and never will.
I came into the smash community watching compilations and playing online, I just wanted to hit cool combos and be fun to watch. That's it. I became good at it by chance but I never signed up for whatever this is.
Top players that people idolize and I thought were my friends told me people only played me for bayo practice and just cut me off immediately when Ultimate came out. Others are predatory creeps but no one will say anything because connections > being a decent person.
Meanwhile a bunch of other people I thought were my friends talk bad about me the second I'm not looking. I could get sad about it but in reality... why entertain this shit when I can just exit?
Basically the community stopped clicking for me and the game didn't click even once. I'm not in the situation that made me adore smash in the first place so it's best that I just go, bye everyone!
Ty! I kind of figured it out but I be also been backslash while trying to selected a power. This problem could be from having an issue with joy con not fully going in run when I jab to the right, all it does if tilt so the character moves slow and does attacks I don’t want...any ideas on fixes?
Uh, could you rephrase that?Ty! I kind of figured it out but I be also been backslash while trying to selected a power.

Oh, that’s unfortunate. It may be worth to just try another controller. Either the GameCube one or the Pro controller should work fine.
Honestly, I think those veterans are fine on their owns. I know some people want a huge revamps for many characters but I think they are good on their owns. Some characters meant to be base enough for newcomers to try and learn how to play Smash.
