Tournament – Downsmash
WR2 vs Blasko (Ice Climbers) [3-1]
After studying my set with Blasko when he beat me felt a lot more confident going into this one. Played a more keep away style trying to get him to run into my bairs or punishing his attacks with bair. Tried to avoid skirmishes as much as possible.
Was fine on all levels except Yoshi’s where I die from a grab at 40-50%. Need to get better so I can even win on Yoshis.
WR3 vs Kami (Fox) [0-3]
Yeh he destroyed me good. I think one game was kind of close but he really ran away with the other games. Will need to analyse how I got hit and try to learn because I felt like I have little to no chance.
LR3 vs Mungo (Falco) [3-0]
Was quite nervous for this game as Mungo has beaten me on netplay. But I 3-stocked his falco twice and then 2-stocked his fox.
I was closer than it sounds but a few little things like his bad DI or upthrows as well as a bad DI at a super low % rest helped. Also he doesn’t grab so I can just stay in shield and then escape his shield pressure.
Losers’ Semis vs Thriles (Falcon) [1-3]
First 3 games were super close, with me winning the 2nd game. I felt like I played really well in this game and while Thriles didn’t play amazing he also didn’t play poorly. Solid B play from him.
This game was really encouraging for me to see my progress. This was the first game I have taken off Thriles since 4th October 2016…back when I played Peach.
