lol at Angus. there's a tournament at 1507 Washtenaw (it's like next to South University [Pinball Pete's for you downtown noobs]).

http://smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=164142

there's the link.


Actually, having played both on Nintendo WFC and local multiplayer with 4 people on one screen, it seems that local multiplayer has more of the "rubber band" effect than WFC.

Nintendo WFC is unforgiving, and if someone gets a 15 second lead you're probably never going to catch them. However, locally it seems that the game forces players to stay at an even pace. I played people today at work that had never played Mario Kart before, they selected automatic drifting, and even though I used every mini-turbo and trick jump that I could find I never really broke away from them as I typically do when playing online.

Might be something to consider if Mario Kart Wii is going to be incorporated into tournament play this year.


I added you swordmaster


i have 2 tell u right now that mario kart is the most disappointing game ive ever played. the courses are fine but what did they do to the drifting? they ruined it and its one of the professional mario kart essentials

also the steering just plain sucks. this is coming from someone who can accept almost anything in a video game (heh) that thing that allows u to look behind your kart distorts your concentration on the driving it drives me crazy. other than that, theres nothing severely wrong with this new mario kart. in fact i almost like the other features that come with the game

then theres the debate of whether mkdd or mkw should be the game that we play at the tournis as omokusaki said. just sharing my opinion but im gonna stick with mkdd.

mario kart tourni on the 25th. is is wii or double dash thats what i want to really know.


first off the drifting isn't worse it's just that the timing changes depending on the level of drift your kart/bike has. (low = drift sooner high= drift later)

2nd there is a stat called handling and that is what controls the steering ability of the karts

3rd teh rear-view mirror was in the n64 version (or so i believe) and it is actually an incedible usefull feature. It,s best use is when people are behind you and you want to shoot a shell backwards its better to kow were you are aiming. Basically only use it on straightaways when you are in first.

I'd say that we should play mariokart wii over mkdd simply because it is more balanced


WRONG!

dd all the way
makes for a better chance to catch up when in last place....

the wii version has a very low chance for the noob in last or even in 3rd or 4th place to catch up to the guy is 1st.


Yes, that is what i mean by balenced, n00bs not having a high chance of wining do to raw luck.


DD and Brawl is my vote

Even though I'm way too old to participate in the GT season, I'd have to say that Mario Kart Wii should be the game to run with.

The only thing that I found was odd was how much of a "rubber band" effect there was when playing local multiplayer, and since in a GT season this game would have to be played online as there is no network play, it shouldn't be an issue. Other than that, I'm really happy with the game, especially with the improved online mode when compared to what Nintendo gave us in Brawl.

Additionally, in Mario Kart Wii everyone can pick their preferred driver and not get stuck with a random combo that puts them at a serious disadvantage. That alone should be enough to justify including MK Wii in the next GT season as opposed to Double Dash.

Anyway, perhaps the best way to solve this would be to have a pre-season Mario Kart tournament that featured Mario Kart Wii. Maybe it would be too cost prohibitive to do so though and if the copies are purchased, it would simply be included in the upcoming season to justify the cost to the library. If we wanted to try this though, I could get my hands on three copies, assuming that you already have the Wii consoles setup.

Another point to consider that I briefly mentioned above is MK Wii's lack of network play. Is the library's firewall setup to allow the Wiis to connect to Nintendo WFC? If not, and that setting can't be changed do to security policies (something that I've run into on the Wii where I currently work) Mario Kart Wii may not even be a viable option.

Finally, limabeans and swordmaster. I entered you two in as Mario Kart Wii friends a few days back and still haven't gotten confirmation. Tutu seems to have added me fine with the info I provided, so perhaps you may have mistyped my friend code in your Wii.


ELIIIIII

RAISE THE BAR TO ALLOW AT LEAST COLLEGE KIDS TO ENTER.

I AM GOING TO BE MEGA BORED. ;_;

that is all.


ive added u as well omokusaki, right number that you posted here too but it still has ur box as a question mark

edit: library tournaments should only be for high schoolers 8)

Also in pools being third or fourth isn't as big of a disadvantege because of the character special items (i.e. only toad and toadtte getting golden shrooms, and the troopa's getting triple shells)

Also we reallyt should let college people come as it it would make stuff so much more interesting


nooo cause then RJ would own everyone and i wont get to win T_T

.........................no comment.

anyway, the debate over the karts is quite something to read but how is it even possible to get a * on every 150cc cup? this game, in my opinion is persistantly annoying, but im only looking at it one way

for example, there is a wider variety of stages, characters, and interaction with others. also all the items in the game are not directed toward a specific character. although its diffecult to control at most times the wii wheel is a fun new experience for the wii. there also arent any really bad glitches (as far as i know)

on the other hand there were some problems with this game that made it diffecult in my experience to play smoothly. when you fall off once your almost always in 11th or 12th place. thats annoying. when you get hit by a master, green, or red shell when in 1st place it knocks you back a few places. also annoying.

im just trying to play devils advocate with my other comment


but if they don't come I'll always win and i'll be uber bored

and angus i 2 stard every 150 cc, but it mostly depends on how lucky you are and how god you are turbo-boosting.

Me= hit by 4 blue shells on the final lap of snes ghost valley and i still got 1st with a 2.5 second lead due to my amazing powersliding skills


dang tutu's confident.........snorkmatch?

you guys are never online on brawl OR mario kart :/

edit: the huron track is cursed, it made me strain my hamstring! >:o

yea im not really playing videogames alot latly... idk y but im just not.

im back to css!!!


thinks swordsmaster
was that you yelling go Bad driver


yeah chi it really does depend on your drifiting level. idk, but i think that drifting with a lower stat is better. dont ask me y


I'm usually online on Mario Kart every evening, typically after 10pm at night.


swordmaster-- there really would be no point in giving u notra's code for the simple fact that he basically only plays GTA4 and gears. ( and there isn't really a way 4 me to find it considering hat once 2 ppl r registered on brawl their codes are no longer visible.)
Also... Brawl doesn't have online play. And im not usually on because im busy attempting to beat Radiant dawn... again. But once im done with that i might start playing again, maybe.

Angus-- low drift isn't neaerly as good as high for the simle fact that with low you lose the advantage of hugging the curve, unles you start drifting fairly early, but that of course slows u down some and makes it easier for karts to ram you into the turf (assuming the couse has turf, of course). Just use high and remind yourself to wait a for a moment before you start to drift and you'll see the mondo improvement.


i admit that im starting to lose focus on what we're talking about so i have no idea what im saying now; too busy toying with getting brawl trophies =0


lol thats gonna take a while.... im 177 stickers away from getting them all...
and like ... away from all the trophies


yeah but isnt it so fun?

lol all you want but i just discovered that you can play five different ways: wii wheel, classic controller, wii remote, wii remote w/ nunchuk, and the gamecube controller. this'll make things 7x easier.

im aiming to get all the "secrets (which didnt seem to be very secret)", and also all the stickers o_O X) $_$


adding to my previous comment...

what about the clans? this year will be my first year with real involvement. last year i was in shadowfire and was the only one at the finals we gotta come up with some good clan names this year. personally i suck at coming up with names i was going with king waluigi as my player name let me hear your opinions when you next reply.

............where is everyone?!?!?!

also when u ppl reply show me character strengths and weakneses 4 brawl

............why am i so bad at sending out comments?


king waluigi lol how original

im gonna change mine this yr cause its unoriginal as well

my clans still asian invasion yeahhyuhhz

as for teaching you about brawl i dont wanna spend the time now, id rather show you later with the good old fashioned way of butt whoop

Holder of the 9000th post!!!


yeah sounds good with me

i figured id go with king waluigi instead of lord of the shrooms


i once again have been inspired to change my name
Also do you wnat brawl stratagies or AADLGT brawl stratagies? as these are severly different. However the only bit of advice i can give relating to both is maining Peach. Peach is unofficially he best charecter in brawl because of her up-titlt, smash-b, and her uber l337 walk animation. (glide-tossing isn't half bad either). She also is a good charecter because she teaches u how to not make mistakes.

Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- MKT


robs glidetoss is better

the only good thing about peach's glidetoss is you can easily follow it up with fast slaps

stop taking my character ppl, i was the first one to play peach :0

...i was da first to play peach..... rawr.


but im the only 1 who still plays peach... so get at me n00bs
Also peachs is batter than robs because peach can pull bob-oms, and rob can't.
Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- LMKT


who got wii fit???????

i totally forgot to put it on hold so im just gonna w8 will they recall some of the boards to make them better....... but i wanna know if its kool.. and if its not im still gonna buy it, but i need to know how soon i should buy it...


Yea i just unlocked every song in brawl.... woot ....
Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- LMKT


i am 3 stickers away from every sticker !!!!!!


...congrats

first thing is i have absolutely no idea what wavedashing or glide tossing is, and im not afraid to say it tell me what they mean or else ill turn my player name into mario

next thing, legendary magic, is that i wanna learn both stratagies (aadlgt and reg. brawl) it doesnt matter to me just tell me stuff

finally, i wanna know who u ppl play as and are most comfortable with.

4 me, i find that lucas, toon link, c falcon, marth, and ike are my strength characters

my second choices are kirby, diddy, metaknight, ice climbers, link, and to my own surprise, rob

peach is alright, but im still trying 2 figure out how 2 pwn other ppl whin i set them 2 a high damage gauge. also her second jump we could do without, because she just seems to spin around rather than jump

also sonic could hit opponents with more force because i find it hard to ko ppl with him as well


go to digiops on sunday and ill teach you

my peach literally got better overnight woot.


lame...


er yeah they messed up the date anyway the kart tourni was supposed 2 b on friday 23 not friday 25

i also want 2 be in a good clan this year could u show me how 2 do that?


princess tutu i gotta tell ya youre still known as the best tic tac toe player, according to the aaos' mock awards +_+


There was a kart tourney?


idk there was something that was listed 4 friday, may 25: "Mario Kart Tournament" what i want 2 know iz if eli was there. also bad driver i forget have u graduated yet?


hey ive decided that i want to learn how to wavedash...is is illegal in the tournaments, or do they allow it?...i also learned about something called a pivot grab in brawl, which allows you to grab someone from directly behind you, or something along those lines. its kind of a replacement for wavedashing, but wavedashing's better. eric tells me that were going to most likely have brawl, dd for team kart, and wii kart for singles. that may change by the pre-season event (which i will be present for), but it sounds like one of the best ways of doing the tourneys this year. considering that ill be at the pre-season event i want to be a part of a major clan, just when its forming. the equivalent teams of asian invasion, US, bros. of maplewood, angry little girls, and super smash bros.......um yeah


so.....theres still gonna be a regulation throwdown as usual at the end of june right........i dont care if its brawl or melee i just need SOMETHING (as long as its brawl or melee :p), ive been deprived of these tourneys for too long ahhhhh

also angus if wavedashing is illegal then the whole clan us would have barely any points lol (my clan would have none T.T)...............also pivot grab isnt a replacement for wavedashing at all......and pivot grabbing was available in melee sooo not a replacement

and umm asian invasion currently has 5 members right now, WE NEED ONE MORE PERSON! (preferably asian, lol jkk) whatever though the 6th member is irrelevant right now cause we're SWEEPING BRAWL BABY

Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- LMKT


Angus, if you want to learn Melee, look here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n4s5yB7ZkE

there are 3 parts to the Advanced How To Play series.

melee foreveerrrrrr


dood legendary magic i looked it up and im beginning to understand it. now, theres something that they call the angle which is where you tip it half way down (please correct me if im wrong) and then you have to dodge down or whatever. i still have no idea of how to wavedash. but i have heard of people who do side wavedashes and what they call "super" wavedashes as well.
by the way lain, who do you enjoy playing as most? last i remember it was donkey kong but that was long ago.


its not that hard to learn if u have someone with you that knows how to.....i think, my brother learned how to in like 2 days after i did T.T

also practice wavedashing with luigi first, itll rock your mind

yeah i was thinking just the same thing last night... luigi's traction sucks, so its easier to wavedash with him... idk why in every 3d game luigis traction is 3 times as bad as marios
i also thought that pivot grabbing was in brawl lol
i havent heard from tutu for a while either

did you know that when you get an electrode from a pokeball, when it turns red, you can pick it up and use it as a projectile?...its easier to do in brawl cuz its red longer before exploding o_O i think i found this at a strange site: ssbm.detstar.com they show this secret underground passage on yoshi circuit too


I need a scrub with halfway decent internet to practice my new main on. any takers? IF there are any plz just aim me Magicknight2tu or call me (734) 883-1449 (but dont txt my screen is broken), its too much of a pain to get to this site
Also luigi's wavedash isn't easier because of his poor traction, its just longer, its easier because of how long it takes him to get off of the ground.
also its friday the 13th

Is that supposed to be a reply, couse if so, i think u just called urself a scrub...
if not the what i remember was me playing sheik and peach (2 garbo characters mind u) against snake ( a completely broken character) and ur DK (I do accept DK as an acceptable character. I believe peach vs DK was a 1-stock, and i think i did sheik against snake I believe that fell between 1-2 stock. Then i remember getting raped by ur brother's rob ( an annoying charcter, second only to wario but still legit). Then i had 2 go bcause i had to catch the bus to get to digi-ops on tiime 4 teams. Does taht about sum it up?
Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- LMKT


wooooooooooooo i beat you in peach dittos. and what the, i was three stocking you with dk, cant handle my spikes yo

one way to settle this

and marth...
Tutu 2 good 4 u n00b! -- LMKT


lain thanx 4 giving me that url for advandced how 2 play tactics im gonna own now is there possibly any way to repay you other than bothering you? i understand how 2 wavedash now but i cant wavedash across a stage yet because i havent mastered the timing for it...its hard to do cuz you have to press r/l IMMEDIATELY after pressing jump otherwise your character either jumps or sheilds. im also having problems with the "analog" stick; im pressing it too much south or to the side...

other than that, edge hogging is a useful technique as well. i still need practicing wavedashing backwards onto the edge for speed.

also, when i was playing against doc, instead of edge hogging, he hit me with his cape, which, if you notice, reverses the direction of anything that will inflict damage on him. so when i was attempting to recover, i died..............lol

im just putting this out there, and i dont expect an answer from anyone, but.....what technique (that isn't wavedashing) did you find hardest to memorize?

btw next regulation tourney july.............12th?
