I believe that with the recent "drama", people stopped coming to this site in order to learn and play smash, but to get their daily fix of scandalous drama. I am guilty of this too since recently I have taken a break for smash and only come to this site to read blogs. Now, however, we need to put the focus back onto smash. Some may say that this site needs more content geared toward the general crowd of fighting game fans and gamers if it is to grow. But no matter what content is on this site, the name of it still will be All is Brawl. All the members here originally came here for their passion for Smash. With these blogs, I hope to reignite that passion that we once had.
These blogs, although with knowledge I hope everyone can learn from, are mainly directed toward the newer, more inexperienced players. The "Wifi warriors" and the once in a blue moon tournament goers. I want them to know that there is something greater to work for rather than being a random Wifi player or the best in there small group of friends and give them the tools to do so. Also, I want to help create the next generation of smashers. Players inevitably will retire when life starts to take more of a priority over the game. So, want want players ready to take their place as faces of the community and regional powerhouses that have the same passion and dedication that they once had. However, don't believe that I think I am the savior of the smash community. I am one of those players I described above. So, I'll give you a summary on who I really am.
My name is Alex. I'm a high school student in Georgia. I main Dedede and am starting to experiment with other characters. My tag is SS4A, a joke between me and my cousin. I have a few goals, the main ones are to go to more tournaments, find a training partner, and get on the GA PR. I've been to 5 tournaments, not really doing anything notable at any. In fact, I came in last at the first two I've been to. But even without having notoriety, I still enjoyed every second of every tournament I've been to. Meeting new people, getting exponentially better every time I went, playing highly respected players, I would not trade any of the experiences I have made from tournaments for anything in the world. All I want to do is create more experiences, travel farther, meet more people, get better, and spread my name. Hopefully, this passion will rub off onto everyone that reads my blogs.
I made a blog not to long ago that I wanted to be the first in the "Smash revival" series, but I didn't title it. So, here is the first blog. http://allisbrawl.com/blogpost.aspx?id=134626
With that, I hope to start an uprising of new players with the will to become the best. Also, to help me, experienced players please don't just brush off this idea. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as not only would it improve the message that I want to convey, but it will also help me become a better player and person.
LET THE SMASH REVIVAL BEGIN!
