A sheik main. Games were close but I had the clear advantage. Missed a few edge guards and got hit by too many aerials
OMG I got absolutely destroyed. 4 stocked the first game and 3 stocked the 2nd game. Movement was horrible, attack decisions were so unsafe it was laughable. He steamrolled me.LR2 vs Papi (won 2-0)
New player, first tournament. Played Dr Mario then fox.LR3 vs Skite (lost 1-2)
First game he took me to dreamland as I think he likes the space/campy matchup. I landed 2 rests early on and movement felt good and attack decisions felt safe, like I knew what he was trying to do. 2 stock victory.
Second game I banned Pokemon as I wanted to go to Yoshi’s and I know he hates FD. I want to force myself onto Yoshi’s as much as possible to really improve my close quarters spacing. Movement felt uncomfortable and attack decisions were all pretty bad. Wasn’t so much that they were unsafe as I wasn’t actually hitting him very often. He 2 or 3 stocked me.
Third game I took him to FD…I guess because I know he doesn’t like the stage as well as to see if my SH practice on FD could help me. It didn’t. I got 4 stocked by him and lost all my practiced movement. Well played to Skite.
AMA WR2 vs Liam (won 2-0)
I feel like Liam is improving. I think where I really got him was in the edge guards though. I got quite a few edge guards on him that other falcons would have made way harder.
AMA WR3 vs Johl (won 2-0)
Another newer player who played Marth. Focused on practicing my punish, edge guarding + up tilts. Got 1 up tilt rest
AMA WF vs Blasko (won 3-2)
Dreamland only for all 5 stages. This game really showed me that while I can consistently short hop in practice it isn’t unconscious yet. When I did short hop my fingers used way more force to make the action happen than usual. More grinding to do.
Every match except the last was a final stock. Lost 1 game holding ledge as Sopo was side B’ing back. Sopo fell below stage and was falling to his death when Nana (who was still on stage) forward smashed me and I died off the side blast zone before Sopo died off the bottom. Was so hype, but in hindsight I needed to roll up.
AMA GF vs Aidan (won 3-1)
Been playing 2 years but first tournament. Beat his sheik twice then lost to Marth and then beat his Marth. Was again focusing on my punish, edge guarding and spacing. First game against Marth I was too aggressive but almost brought it back. 2nd game I played safer to get the win.
THINGS TO WORK ON
– Short hopping is NOT unconscious yet, need to focus on this primarily before BAM
– Need to get better at punishing DI away side B on both Falco and Fox
