So, Super Smash Bros. Melee has been out since 2001, the first tournament was in 2002. Went quickly from a rookie, to best in the WC, to best in the US to best in the world. Cemented that with a tournament that nearly didn't happen, EVO 2013.

I'm here to answer questions, but if you want to know more about the scene, you can always check out /r/smashbros, Also, much love to the crew of Melee It On Me, a SSBM-centric podcast about the egame, the community, the events.

I'll be answering questions starting around Noon PST.

So, it's quite obvious the baby will be a Smash pro, we don't need to discuss this.

The real question is, are you going to force him/her to play a certain top tier character, or would you be fine with them being a Roy main?

TheMofo69182 karma

M: "Son, why can't you just main a good character like Fox? Is this how I raised you?"

Jr: "Roy is art, dad. You just don't understand."

M: "What's to understand? How do you expect to support a family when you have no KO moves? And no recovery options??"

Jr: "I'm considered the best Roy in the world right now. Can't you just be proud of me?"

M: "It's very difficult for me to be proud of you when you come home and tell me you didn't even make it out of pools. Don't you see that you're wasting your life away?"

Jr: "Look, dad. I can't be you, no matter how much you want me to be. I hope one day you'll learn to accept me for the low-tier main that I am."

M: "This is just a phase-- I just hope you come to your senses before it's too late. Someday you're going to get JV 5-stocked by a campy Sheik and be left out on the streets. Do you really want to have to money match casuals in order to survive?"

Jr: "I hate you dad. I hate you."

M: "Wait, son, don't say -- I didn't mean -- I love you!"

But Junior had already slammed the door.

During Evo, my friend got shit faced at the bar and I guess you and a couple other guys were shooting the shit. I don't remember if people were talking SC or what, this is what I remember from my friend's story, but he ended up slightly insulting smash. IIRC the conversation went like:

"I play smash"

"Oh, are you any good?"

"I'm on in the best in the world," before you won

"Oh shit, really? Well then good luck man"

He comes back, tells us the story how he met Mang0 and was cheesing hard. Finals day rolls around, starts telling everyone sitting around us he met you, crazy cheers for you in the finals. Once you win, he just goes nuts.

"I met that dude at the bar and now he's the champ!"

It was fucking hilarious. Oh well, no real question, just remembering a story of my friend meeting the future world champ SSB in a bar.

MIOMmang07 karma

LMAOOO i love a good ol mango story

Real question: what are your thoughts on the Canadian Smash scene and who do you think are the best players in Canada? How do you think the Toronto, MTL and BC scenes stack up compared to the US?
