people are still playing melee competitively. You probably won't be able to become great if you're starting now, but you if you really like it and are good, you could probably get better than all of your friends. It does take a lot of practice though. It's a good idea to start watching some "how to" vids or some pro matches in order to inspire you.

of course! metaknight is killing brawl slowly like a slow acting poison.

in a couple years from now, everybody would be back playing melee

Brawl it's killing itself, it has nothing to do with MK.

Dude Silent Wolf and Eggz live in Seattle, as well as a good number of melee players I think. Pendulum is good. Also for anyone wondering where to find people, go to smashboards.com and go to regional zones. Find which zone you are in and see if there is a social thread or thread about your area. If there is, make a post saying where you are and that you are interested in playing. If there isn't, make a new topic! Also check out your regional zone's tournament page, and try to attend one. Best way there is to meet players and arrange smashfests.

Also, if you're dedicated and play regularly, it won't take you long to get good. It takes noobs years to get good, but Brawl players have already been playing the basics of smash. The transition sounds super easy imo. Hope more people start playing Melee.

edit:  And for people wondering, the Melee scene is NOT dead and is very active, especially if you live in a populated area (EC/WC).  The only area that might be quiet is upper midwest, but the midwest arranges large tournaments and provides carpools and such for people who don't live near anyone.  So no matter where you live, there is no excuse not to play Melee.

its arguably more active than brawl (on the competitive scale). number of entrants for melee usually outnumber brawl in national tourneys
