Hello AllisBrawl. Wi-Fi denizen Stridez here bringing you this short but sweet interview with the incredible Peach player SlayerZ. SlayerZ is known for being one of the top players in the ladder (current Spring 2013 Doubles Ladder Champion) and is more recently making quite the showing in the local offline scene, placing 2nd in both singles and doubles at Super Smash Sundays this past weekend.
 
Stridez: To start off, what is your name, age, and main in Smash for people who don't know?

SlayerZ: My name is Jacob, I'm 18 years old, and I main Princess Peach.

Stridez: How long have you used Peach, and why do you prefer to main her over everyone else?
SlayerZ: I've used Peach basically since the game came out, however I also used a variety of characters like Metaknight, Ike, and Kirby before, lol. But what stood out for Peach was her combo game and her ability float, which I loved.

Stridez: Those are some of her unique qualities as a character that really set her apart from the rest of the cast, and you especially as a player. You are known for your very quick low string combos with Peach, as well as your precise float cancels. Do you feel like her uniqueness makes up for her weaknesses as character?

SlayerZ: Lol, uair strings are soo good. Floating is amazing, without it I really think Peach would be really, really bad. It gives her more mobility with float cancels, and fast punishes out of shield. Another reason why floating is so good because you can poweshield MK's nado just by ledge floating onto the ledge and simply shielding. MK's nado destroys Peach, but this gives her a way to combat it. So yes, it really does make up for the weaknesses she has.

Stridez: That is a very clever option to use versus one of her most difficult matchups. Do you spend a lot of time looking for new options with Peach, or are there other Peach players you look to for advice/new strategies?

SlayerZ: Yes, I do. The training room is very helpful for finding little obscure things to add to your playstyle. Kie in particular does many interesting things that I have added to my playstyle, which by the way has been working really well lol. He wanted me to contact him, which I did. Through Twitter and we talk about Peach stuffs. Silly Kyle and I also talk about  Peach strategies, in hopes of improving her metagame. So my Peach references are the training room, Kie and Silly Kyle (my boo 4 lyfe<3).

(Kie is a strong Japanese Peach player, widely considered the best Peach overall, and Silly Kyle is a Peach main from Arizona who competes with SlayerZ currently for the title of best Peach on the west coast)

Stridez: Both Kie and Silly Kyle are amazingly successful with Peach, and it’s nice to see that you a sharing that same success in recent times. On another aspect of training, lets talk about your history of playing wifi. For as far as I know, you have dominated the singles and doubles ladder with top placings since as far back as 2010. That level of consistency is pretty amazing. What are some of the pros and cons of playing wifi, in your opinion?

SlayerZ: Thank you! Wifi allows you to implement and try new things out to add to your playstyle. That's basically what I use it for now, to try to improve my offline game. It's also very good for match up practice and getting pretty colorful names, lollll. Cons include: lag, rage inducing, irritating/immature wifi players, I know I can think of more, but not at the top of my head. But yeah, play wifi at your own risk, LOL.

Stridez: Thats interesting to hear that you use it as a tool for improving your skills offline. Were you always using wifi as a way to prepare for competing in person? I ask because there was a time when you didn't attend any events here in SoCal, all while placing top in the Allisbrawl ladders.

SlayerZ: I really just used it to get better as a player in general, but now that I have changed my playstyle drastically over the years, it's now mostly for implementation. Yeah I was a wifi monster but now I attend all the SoCal monthlies. It's easier because I just got my license so I don't have to be as dependent on others.

Stridez:  That leads to my next question. Now that you are pretty much a regular attendee of these regional tourneys, what are some of your impressions of the offline scene as whole?

SlayerZ: I like the offline scene, it's fun and there's lots of nice and cool people. The competition is exciting. Overall it's enjoyable and wish I was a part of it sooner.

Stridez: Yes there's so much excitement that goes a long with playing in tournament matches, and I'm really thankful for all of the cool people I've met through tournaments. I'd definitely recommend attending to anyone who hasn't yet. Taking a step back from smash, do you have any other interests? Such as sports, schools of study, etc.

SlayerZ: Besides smash, I'm mostly at college, with my boyfriend, or hanging out with my cousin. Right now I'm attending Mt.Sac and majoring in psychology or bio... maybe a double major, dunno. And I don't play sports, but I exercise often at home.

Stridez: Wow I didn't know you also attended Mt. Sac. I know a few friends (and smashers) who go there as well. How lucky for you that they started hosting large events right across the street from where you go to school lol.

SlayerZ: Yeah I'm like 10 minutes away from the venue, yay. And Mt.Sac does have a small smash scene. They play Brawl, PM, and Melee. Sometimes If I'm not busy after class, I'll go play and hang out with the smashers there for a bit.

Stridez: That's cool! You should get them to come out to the next tourney. It’s always interesting to see a new face. You never know who the next low/mid tier hero might be.

Stridez: That will conclude the interview. Before that do you have any shoutouts you would like to give?

SlayerZ: Lol we'll see. Shoutouts to mah boo Silly Kyle, Legyt aka Queen Beyonce, and Stridez for being a wonderful interviewer.

Stridez: Haha thanks man. See you at the next tournament, and good luck with the rest of your endeavors.

Congratulations to you all, and I'll make sure to send the results to JV so he can distribute the prizes as soon as he returns from Japan. (He can do it either via Paypal or mail, so when he sends you a notice, be sure to tell him your preference.)


On a personal note, I wanted to give a few shoutouts for the people that helped make this a good event. Keep those hands clapping!

1. Enrish and The740 (I don't care if he doesn't actually see this.)
Contrary to your words and despite this being my first time running playoffs (or any tournament for that matter,) this wasn't a living hell at all. Of course, that's probably because I followed your advice with respect to how things should be done, so thanks a lot for the pointers. Where would I be without your guidance, O Mighty Senseis?

2. Meek.
That stream of yours was a very nice touch, and brought quite a bit of hype for singles. It was a shame to see it die down as the matches became less and less, but I guess it's to be expected when a majority play ahead and leave the rest to play whenever. Regardless, I'm glad you suggested it, and I hope you'll consider doing it again in the future.

3. All of the participants.
As Enrish said time and time again, you guys are what make or break playoffs. In my opinion, things went pretty well without too many hiccups. Sure there were some disqualifications, but I'm not too concerned about that. This isn't a perfect world, so it's to be expected that the brackets may have stragglers. Anyway, thank you all for your awesome cooperation.


Now, let's talk about the next ladder season. Come August 31st, there will be two big changes  for the ladder system.

1. Double Meta Knight is banned from doubles ladder. The public has spoken, and we've decided to give it a try. So, from here on out, only one Meta Knight will be allowed per team.

2. Badges will be tied into the match requirements. Out of the three proposals previously made public, Enrish and I decided to go with only one: match requirements for badges. This is to prevent users from playing one or two matches and making it into the top 64 or 32 for a badge. That being said, we realize activity has declined over the seasons, so we won't make the limits too crazy. They are as follows: 25 matches for singles, and 10 for doubles. If users can meet those requirements, there's no reason they can't play a few extra matches to make the playoffs requirements, especially if everyone else will be fighting to meet them as well.

Another thing to note is that this season may very well be an Apex qualifier, just like last year. This requires neal, though, but since he's the only one who can change seasons, I don't see how he wouldn't be able to make it happen. Stay tuned for an official update when the fall ladder starts.


That's about all I have to say. Congratulations again to the victors, and to those who wish to compete this season, I wish you the best of luck!

P.S. To those players who still never received their prizes, JV still hasn't returned from vacation. However, he told me before he left that he sent messages about adresses or accounts to send the payments to, and never got replies. Please send him the necessary information again via AiB PM or email so that he can tend to it upon returning.

P.P.S. Here are the links to the brackets: http://oi45.tinypic.com/6pswes.jpg (singles) and http://oi45.tinypic.com/2pyqlh4.jpg (doubles)

Playoffs ended about two weeks ago after the most chaotic season it has seen in at least three years, if not ever. There was multiple suspicions of people subbing for others, two very large disputes, site problems at least twice on scheduled nights, and issues with Nintendo's server. Nonetheless, even with all that chaos, we managed to finish only a week behind schedule thanks to the dedicated participants. Here are the winners!

Singles:
1st - SlayerZ
2nd - Gonzalo ZeRo
3rd - M to the Ekos
4th - Zorai.

Doubles:
1st - -Randum- + A-Oh
2nd - Killuminati Patg + Mysterion

Congratulations to you all!

With a new season upon us, we're looking to the future. This last two or three months, I've noticed all the comments the members of this site had to say about ladder.There's been statements about how we need more events, that there needs to be more hype, and that playoffs need to be run better. And so today, as with the other recent "times of change" movements, I present to you some of the major changes that you'll see from now on:

1. This season, we're looking to upgrade all of the rules in ladder. We want everything to be as updated and specific as possible so as not to cause confusion, and everyone will know without a doubt when something is okay or not okay to do. Invinciboy and I have already spent multiple hours towards updating the rules, and will continue doing so. That being said this season we will be enforcing the Apex stage list once again this season, and continue to do so for future ladders. The rules have been updated to show which stages the Apex stage list supports, so please make sure you're frequently checking the rules for updates.

2. We are considering the ban of double Meta Knight in Doubles ladder, but first we would like the members' opinion on it. Very soon, we will be posting a poll where you can voice your opinion on the matter.

3. Ladder and playoffs will be hyped once again! Bi-weekly ladder updates will occur on a consistent, rotating schedule, and we're going to have special events for ladder every weekend in order to give players more of a chance to meet the requirements. Meanwhile, Invinciboy and myself will be putting countless hours into hyping the playoffs and seeing what we can do to make things a little easier for everyone.

4. Though all these changes are of significant importance, the most important change will be who's now in charge of ladder. About three months ago, when first working towards the site's revolution, I came to the realization that I can no longer offer the site what it needs by myself. Because of that, I decided I was going to distribute five of my positions to what Neal, JV_, and I felt were the most qualified staff. Though we haven't made a final decision on the other positions, picking the new Head of Ladder was pretty easy. So without further ado, let me introduce the new Head of Ladder: Invinciboy! From now on, he will be in charge of everything that has to do with ladder, including hosting playoffs. For this first season (at least), I will be helping him out. You requested that another person help the host out so things can run smoothly, and so it has been done.

There are more changes we have in mind, but those will be announced later.

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger." This famous phrase by Friedrich Nietzche has never meant so much to ladder and playoffs. We survived one hell of a season, and now that we know what needs to be focused on, we're going back to the drawing board and making sure this next season paves a path of improvement. Of course, we're always looking for suggestions. If you have an idea that you feel could improve the ladder system, let us know! There are no right or wrong answers, but please be clear with what you mean. (In other words, don't just say, "The playoffs schedule sucks! Enrish was an *** for using it!")

We hope you all enjoy the changes and proposals we've presented so far, and stay tuned for future updates!
*switches in* Hmmm? Oh hey there, AiB! Welcome to the 4th ladder update of the winter season! How are things going on in the ladder? We have reached way past the halfway point through the season, and I hope you ladder players are doing well as you try to storm for the top! Have there been interesting changes, or not much at all? We will just have to see what's in store for today. Just to keep this intro nice and short, let's move on to the rankings!

(No ladder replays have been sent to us for this update, but not to worry, submissions are still open! If you guys have replays of your best ladder matches you'd like to share and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send me or Mocha any via PMs! Depending on how much we get, she and/or I will most likely pick a maximum of 2 videos for both singles and doubles to post up in the next update.)

Notes

Singles:
  • A Zero Suit Samus user, Agent Salem, currently takes first place with an undefeated streak while ADHD trails behind him by 112 points!
  • Newcomer, Phoenix vX, enters today's rankings with the only user representing Sonic. Great job!
  • MeroKnight has managed to get back on the top rankings, using a whole plethora of characters besides his main! Keep it up!
  • YoshQ seems to be doing very well this time around, as he 'super-jumps' from 25th to 12th with his Luigi (and some Meta Knight).
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [17]ChinaLee, [19]So Fatal, [26]Adam Gibson, [27]raytay824, [28]Kimchi, [29]Kain, and [32]Luckay4Lyphe
  • Top 5 Players with the Most Wins → ADHD (165), Zero Heart (133), Jules (128), Zebra (107), and YoshQ (91).
  • Top 6 Players with the Highest Win % → Agent Salem and FOW tie with a win percentage of 1.000, Ramona Flowers (.935), Koolaid (.934), ADHD (.917), and Atomsk (.914).


Doubles:
  • The top 4 of these rankings haven't changed much other than 'Flame's team' and 'DLK' switching positions.
  • Teams 'We both lost to Wolf' and 'we r gud' are currently suffering some decay, despite having undefeated streaks. Meanwhile, newcoming teams, 'Desu Forever!~ o3o' and 'Just fartin in the dark' have entered the rankings with undefeated streaks. Nicely done!
  • We first have double Snakes, then double Meta Knights, and now, we have a team of double Ikes being represented by a newcoming team, 'The Ragnell Legends'. Whew, this should be interesting.
  • These following teams have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [09]-WiFi GoDs-, [10]Team We Don't Lose To Lucas, [11]HATE US, [12]Debom and Flame, and [16]Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~.
  • Top 6 Teams with the Most Wins → 'Flame's team' (41), 'DLK' and 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' tie with 22 wins, 'Muramasa baby!' (20), 'Team Red' (18), and 'Fiendnation' (16).


Alright, with the season ending on March 31st, we've got at least about a month before the playoffs come around.We shall see who can make it to the top 64 in singles and top 32 in doubles by then! If you haven't tried out the ladder yet and you feel like proving yourself to be the best, go for it! And as for the decaying players, you have some time to make it up. Keep it up, everyone! Until next time, see ya~ :]
Hey AiB! How has everyone been doing? As most of have you probably gathered by now, Trish and I are collaborating on the AiB ladder updates for this season. This is my second article for you guys, and I hope it’s an improvement from my first. Thank you everyone for being patient and supportive as I get adjusted more to the Content Team. I would also like to thank Diska for helping me with the doubles ladder rankings, and making sure I had their teams’ mains and rankings in check =)

Now that we got that out of the way, there is one more point I would like to address that I didn’t on my first update. If you have any replays of your best ladder matches and you’d like to share it and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send them to me or Trish via PMs. Depending on how much we get, we will post a max of 2 videos to post for the next ladder update.

Notes


Singles:

  • ADHD is still in the lead with a respectable 152 wins. He is also the only one consistently using Diddy who’s currently ranked.
  • Raffi-X stays high in the rankings being the only R.O.B and Alphicans as Mr. Game and Watch.  Going further down the tier list
  • Kimchi joins in with his Ike, and M to the Ekos continues displaying his Lucas. Good job guys!
  • Mcpeepants and Kain keep stepping it up with Wolf.
  • burntsocks (with an additional Yoshi and Snake), Aegis Angel Admiral Pit (all Pit), and Luckay4Lyphe (and Pikachu)  bring Pit into the light. Aegis Angel Admiral Pit has also taken an impressive leap half-way across the ladder rankings since the last ladder update. Nice work, Pits.
  • Zebra and Waft continue with their Wario, while lordDtimeouT and SlayerZ keep representing their Peach.
  • The following players were not ranked in the last update but join in for this one: Koolaid, Ramona Flowers, ChinaLee, judge, Dnyce, raytay824, Kimchi, Mintyflesh, and Luckay4Lyphe.  
Doubles:

  • M to the Ekos and FOW lead the rankings with their amazing Lucas and Ness team.
  • Teams ( We both lost to Wolf, we r gud, Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~) currently have an undefeated streak! How far will they be able to maintain that streak?
  • Double, double, toil and trouble! Flame and Zakalicious join in double Meta Knight while Adam Gibson and Bizkit go double Snake.
  • Muramasa Baby! has been the only team who kept the same position since the last ladder update.
  • Top 5 teams with the most wins: Flame’s Team (31), DLK (22), Muramasa Baby! (19), Team Red (18), and Chinchilla Bros (16).  

Remember, the ladder ends on March 31st.. There’s still plenty of time to catch up on your score if you’re behind on decay, and to join the ladder if you haven’t already. Once again, congratulations to everyone who participated in the ladder. Keep working hard guys! ^_^
Hey, everyone! How's it going? I hope everyone has been alright. Well anyway... you probably thought I was gone or something, but that is not the case. I was unable to work on the first ladder update due to my return from hiatus at the time, and I hope that is understandable. I thank Mocha for whipping up an update for me while I was gone! Also, if you probably didn't realize, she is currently co-working with me for this season's ladder updates. This is something I wanted to try out and to see how things go, so please bear with us as we switch off on each ladder update. Oh, I've also kept to my promise and racked up the most accurate results I can get by taking in today's rankings. We shall see what goes on here!

(By the way, I know this wasn't posted in the first ladder update of this season, but I'm still open to doing this. If you guys have replays of your best ladder matches you'd like to share and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send me or Mocha any via PMs! Depending on how much we get, she and/or I will most likely pick a maximum of 2 videos for both singles and doubles to post up in the next update. After all, the ladder updates do need a little more spice on 'em, yes?)

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken at 5:45 am PST on [01/29/11].

Notes

Singles:
  • ADHD is currently maintaining his position at the top of the ladder with a 92-point lead. How long will he be able to last?
  • This time around, despite more top tier dominance, we're starting to see some Pits (from burntsocks, Luckay4Lyphe, and Aegis Angel Admiral Pit), Wolfs (from Mcpeepants and Kain), and a Mr. G&W (from Alphicans) added to the character variety from players un-ranked 2 weeks ago. Great job, you guys! And also, we have a Lucas added to the mix, as M to the Ekos is currently placing high with him. Very unique choice, I must say!
  • The biggest drop in the ladder at this time is Stingers, dropping from 8th to 31st with his R.O.B. due to some inactivity. But not to worry though, Raffi-X is just getting started, making sure that at least one R.O.B. main can try to leave a mark on the ladder.
  • Congrats to burntsocks for currently having an undefeated streak with his character variety of Pit, Snake, and Yoshi!
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [07]Amaterasu Okami, [10]CtL, [13]pkmonftw, [15]joe ST, [18]×MÁR×, [21]BoxxahBrown, [23]LNIAD, [26]BengalsRZ, [27]State Alchemist Roy, [28]ven, [29]MythTrainerInfinity, [32]-Remix-.
  • Top 6 Players with the Most Wins → Atomsk (111), Luckay4Lyphe and psp tie with 84 wins, Jules (63), Zero Heart (59), and judge (58).
  • Top 5 Players with the Highest Win % → burntsocks (1.000), So Fatal (.944), Atomsk (.938), chucknasty (.926), and ADHD (.925).


Doubles:
  • So, it seems 'Flame's team' and 'Murakasa baby!' have currently switched positions from the last update while 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' are maintaining their 2nd place position. 'Flame's team' also remains undefeated with a streak of 20 wins. Nicely done!
  • With a few starting to decay, we have 4 other undefeated teams for this update. Besides 'We both lost to Wolf', 'we r gud', and 'Dat wiimote DI', we now have 'Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~'.
  • Speaking of 'Dat wiimote DI', if you probably didn't catch this, they are currently the only pure mod team on these rankings, representing a double Kirby team! If you try to take 'em on, you have the opportunity to earn a Double Danger badge!
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [09]u mad y, [10]Wasta~Pray, [12]Green Team, [13]Meaty Beasties, and [15]>icon_sad O^O.
  • Top 5 Teams with the Most Wins → 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' (22), 'Flame's team' (20), 'Muramasa baby!' (18), 'Team Red' (14), and 'Sexy Beasts' (12).


So, the ladder ends on March 31st, which leaves us to having almost exactly 2 months remaining before the playoffs! Not to worry, you guys have plenty of time to get the position you deserve before that happens. Try out the ladder if you haven't and have some fun! It's a great place to experiment with characters, practice, have fun and make new great friends. Remember that there is actually prize money to be won at the end of the ladder season if you make it very far! A lot of people have already started and gotten high up in the ranks with no problem at all. Perhaps one of you can do the same? In the meantime, work hard and keep your flame of competition lighting up! Congrats to the current top 32 players and 16 teams who made it to this first bi-weekly update. We wish you all the best of luck for anyone seeking to be at the top and making it to the playoffs! Until next time, see ya~ :]
