The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
lets hope smash players dont kill the event with their stanky stinks and bryan taunt cancels are plentiful

I want Hbox to win again, 50% because he's one of my favorite players, 50% because people would cry.

Leffen winning isn't ideal, but we'll see if he can't bring it back. #1 in the world for a reason.

Armada losing is more important to me than whoever wins, though. As long as he loses, I don't care who wins.

Street Fighter's top 8 is soon

winners:
Problem-X vs. gachikun
Fuudo vs. Tokido

losers:
Luffy vs. THE COOL KID93
Caba vs. Fujimara

i only know four players this year—the only one i like is tokido
problem-x is a bison player, iirc, so i automatically don't like him
luffy is the guy who picks characters based on how big their tits are, so i obviously want him to lose
i hate fuudo for a variety of reasons

don't know anyone else, i guess i'm rooting for tokido even though he won last year

As much as bo3 is a complete fucking joke for Melee, it was so good to see him come out on top. He was so hard done by with those visa issues, and it stops people whinging about Melee being dead because Armada/Hbox won and Mango placed outside the top 1 therefore making him washed-up according to experts who started playing because of the documentary and switched to smash 4 when Bayonetta was announced.

What I want from Smash for the rest of this year and 2019:
-B0XX to be universally legalised (in Hax’s nerfed form ofc)
-B0XX to be released for sale
-UCF patch to remove Phantom hits entirely
-joint return of PPMD and Hax by next Genesis
-if Melee is there, bo5 at Evo for at least top 32
-American side tourneys to stop scheduling conflicts with Australia’s only supermajor
-Isai x Zonda doubles team in Smash 64

don't forget samox finally releasing Metagame ffs

i actually don't particularly mind phantom hits as a mechanic, because as far as i know, it's just what happens when a hitbox and hurtbox are within a pixel's dick of overlapping, but still not quite—not enough to register a proper hit—which, in other fighting games, would simply register as a whiff

so by "removing" phantom hits, would you want them to register as whiffs, or as actual hits?

I’m not against them as a mechanic, just the increased rate of occurrence on UCF (which actually really gives N0ne a lot of trouble). If that rate is changed because of spacing precision alone then I guess I can understand, but if it’s an inherent flaw of UCF then it needs to go ASAP.

If I was in charge of it, I’d say phantom hit spacing should register as an actual hit rather than a whiff, as it is simply a hitbox and hurtbox interacting, even if only a single unit is overlapping.

Also fuck me Metagame is taking that long to drop. Rewatching the excerpt is almost starting to lose its glamour.

Wait, is a phantom caused by them overlapping by one unit or missing by one unit?

according to smashwiki:
"Such hits occur when a hitbox connects less than 0.01 units through a hurtbox"

so, literally, when something just baaaaaaaaarely hits, it's a phantom

yeah, that should probably just count as a hit then
