Was an amazing tournament and experience.
I'd like to say awesome matches to everyone in my pools and bracket.
The Japanese were really cool, friendly and amazing at smash.
Zero is super legit and took my money, despite my efforts, good stuff.
West Coast you guys are all really chill, I wish I spent more time with you guys, maybe when I go visit sometime.
I placed 25th/400 and when I first got taken out I was very disappointed, but upon reflection I'm proud of that placing. The bracket was filled with 64 of the best players in the world. To earn my place as a part of that feels like a privilege.
I had the most Olimar filled bracket than anyone could ever have.
Pools round 1 = Fino: Awesome matches, you're a great guy and it was really chill talking afterwards!
Pools round 2 = Brood: I got second seed only to Brood, all matches were extremely close.
Winners round 1 = My FRIEND Rich Brown: Honestly I don't think I should have gone Diddy at all, I kinda psyched myself out haha. It was great meeting you even if it had to be in bracket! I really wanted to talk to you more though at the moment I took the loss kinda hard. You're an amazing player overall and congrats on beating M2K!
Losers round 3 = Logic: I can tell how intense we both felt going into the set, this is the first time I've ever won against you and for that I feel accomplished. Good set.
Losers round 4: Dabuz: Ughh Game 3 so close! I really lost my morale game 3 and I did feel like I am starting to understand Olimar very well and being less scared of him. The whistle is still bull****! Good matches.
Top 8 for every game was so hype to watch, I'd like to thank the long island crew for housing and driving me <3
Honestly I don't think MK should be banned especially after what happened at apex. IMO Americans are just lazy and scared. Player skill obviously takes precedence over character by far, as OCEAN, OTORI, NIETONO, ESAM and others clearly demonstrated.
I'm going to miss the MK ditto as much as I hate playing it. In any case I'm exhausted and about to get some much needed sleep, as well as I'm sure the great staff that hosted Apex will get.
I'll also be posting shoutouts to everyone in the main smashboards thread.
I won't be attending any more tournaments until I get a job, so in my absence develop the MK banned metagame and give me a bigger better community to return to and test my skills in!
