hey sushis, I went to a game tournament last week and it was fun! I didn't do so well, but I loved talking to people about video games and stuff! have you guys gone to tournaments before?

 No.396

Never been to a tournament, but've been to LAN parties where we casually played UT99 and UT2k4. Playing games with likeminded people is a lot of fun. Especially when those better than you aren't the sore winner types. Never been to the bigger ones that had actual game tournaments tho.

Used to go a lot (and even staffed at some of them), but at some point you get tired of Smash and want to get involved in any other game, but no one seems to want to play anything other than fucking Smash here. I'd love to have tourneys for all sorts of games, but it's hard to find players. Street Fighter, Marvel, hell even Puyo Puyo and Melty if I could have it my way. But I have to make do with what I have, so Smash.

Been to smash tourneys at schools, I even won a micro Brawl tourney once but it was against people who never play so it was easy. I went to larger, more organized tourneys (both melee and brawl) but I got rekt in pools, and I never went back again. I think that in order win in any scene, you have to train 24/7 and read the meta carefully.

>>397
Which smash game did you prefer? I think Melee had the best mechanics, but the rooster is a bit empty compared to Smash4. Brawl is too slow so it's my least favorite, even if it's still fun to play. I never tried the first smash tho.

They are both alright, I still play them but more casually these days, it's not like I drill wavedashes and shit anymore. I prefer Project M to either, I like having the Melee pace with more characters. Tr4sh is pretty fun when you get a crowd and max out the player slots, but 1on1 is just painful for me to watch and play.

Lots of people seem to really like 4, it always gets more entrants, though maybe that's because its easier to get into than Melee, both in getting the game and actually playing it. Pretty much everyone I know still plays it. Melee, on the other hand, has a smaller crowd playing it competitively, but they tend to also play 4. Still a lot of people, at one of the bigger locals all three games (PM, Melee, Tr4sh) get top billing over stuff like FIFA, COD, LoL and Rocket League. And the other is a Smash only event. As for 64, the little I have played it wasn't as fun as the rest. Melee and above really is a straight upgrade.

And yeah, once you move out of school/anime con-tier tournaments into something more organized you run into some beasts.

It's really weird, it might be nostalgia for me, but I actually prefer the really primitive vibe of Smash 64. That and it was the first video game I owned personally.

I will never say that Smash 64 is objectively better because the rest of the games have way more characters, stages, game modes, etc. And again, I know nostalgia googles are on full display here but Smash 64 does have a special place in my heart.

The only Smash game that I never played was Smash 4 because I don't have a Wii U or 3DS and I was so turned off by the DLC prices for characters.

As far as tourneys go, I used to play Smash 64 against pro over Kaillera but I got fed up with some of the attitudes plus I just liked playing for fun but a lot of friends weren't as good as me but I'm no good against actual pros. Weird place to be at actually.

That looks so comfy tbh.

I haven't been to a tourney before, but I'd love to. I get anxiety pretty easily, but I've looked at some tournaments before, even for games I don't play myself.

I was really nervous at first, but once I started played people talked to me and its easier to respond than to create conversation (for me).

I went to a tournament for the first time at a local comic-con this summer. There weren't many people for the game I signed up for(Skullgirls), but it was still pretty fun. I was pretty surprised that most of the people there were around my skill level, apart from one guy who easily won the tournament.

ooh i play sg too, whats your team?

I played Parasoul and Fukua. I'm more used to playing guilty gear, so knowing how to play and keep track of three characters would have been a bit overwhelming.

yeah I can understand that, I play solo Val so I can rely on the ratio to make up for my lack of assist combos :P

beowulf is pretty fun, especially once you figure out his OTGs.

I impulsively took on someone's offer to tag along with his group this coming FFX because of a Koihime side tourney though I've never been to one. Now I'm scrambling to get good at UNIST since I thought I might as well make full use of my visit there. I'll probably get bodied though.

I always wanted to go to a tournament. It sounds so fun!
