PostSubject: Individual Players' Styles   Mon Jan 28, 2013 4:35 am

Recently I have been thinking about how interesting it is that every player has their own individual style of playing msc. In this thread I'd like to make a list of the habits, tendencies, and characteristics of certain players' games, or their "meta". Over time, I will update this with posts of players on my mind. I will take requests, and I encourage you to post your own opinions of players to get a more varied list. ALSO, these are all OPINIONS, I am not jesus, only treesus, so these thoughts may not be 100% accurate of your gameplay.

These are all subject to change*

Julien the jawa man
-insanely innovative player; consistently makes up plays I've never seen before mid-match
-imo has one of the most complex metagames
-unpredictability and hella mindgames can make him hard to defend (but sometimes he overthinks his opponent)
-however his gameplay would benefit from being more "refined" in certain situations, he could score more by just using simple, efficient maneuvers rather than going for something risky

-will often try to make his chars move or trick using angles on the nunchuk in between rivets
-will sometimes let his players come to a standstill or move slower than running speed to mindgames
-likes to take random shots for rebounds
-has a tendency to use aerial passes more than most tricksters
-wil sometimes aerial pass with db, and hit your player away while it is still in the air
-will often clear the ball from backfield as a passing option
-is surprisingly strong at scoring tricks immediately after a tele
-performs the top side serve it in well
-punishes patterns
-solid start offs, usually mixed- favors chipping upward, running back then teleing into a trick
-is one of the few that still uses insta
-mixes up both mushroom and cs use, for both offense and defense (not always effective)
-will take charged shots for items even as a trickster
-uses items pretty frivolously imo, spams them alot, but does keep a good flow of them coming
-has a tendency to sometimes choose daisy at away

Sothe-the wilkes barron
-Pretty darn unique player, utilizes a lot of scoring options with weak players
-has a fast-paced game, reacts quickly to defense and makes decisions fast
-very hard to take possession from him when he has the ball in a neutral position; he is constantly passing the ball out of reach of the defender
-has a strong defense vs tricksters

-likes to use aerial passes to score
-will often pass to a char, pass back, then pass to the same char for a shot
-does not favor any one char when shooting, even if the char is a med or a power player
-knows his setups
-likes to use koopa skill shot, which works with surprising success
-has ok startoffs, likes to weave around your defense to go for a mid serve it in, chip upward-> use an item -> then serve it up, or pass back for a shooting setup
-mixes tricking with shooting pretty well but definitely favors shooting, could mingame shots, then trick to score more
-is very good at blocking tricks; he goal camps a lot
-shooting defense is not as strong but still effective
-will hit you when vying for a stray ball on his side of the court
-sometimes uses freeze frame during serve it up to remove defenders (this is usually unnecessary especially when at home)
-uses mushrooms for serve it ups
-makes a good amount of banana goals (only when drunk tho)
-plays mediocre when his head isn't in the right place
shdw edit:
-uses koopa with extreme aggression and force

Yukioh the other dragon
-well rounded player
-is good with a wide variety of captains and combinations (giving him supr much disrespect factor)
-has surprisingly strong pass reads on defense
-has a very clean, competitive playstyle

-tries to stay away from using teles + cs
-has stronger matchups vs. different people (able to pull upsets, and be upsetted)
-uses items pretty well
-imo and idky, but is particularly hard to hit or slide into
-start offs are pretty weak, is mainly chip upward-> trick
-uses wally's self pass to pass to another player sometimes (strange tho)
-likes to self pass in the center in front of the goalie ->pass to another player-> shot
-uses a wide variety of tricks, does not just score with one or two
-mixes up shooting into his game well
-has a good method of pressuring, he cuts off your angles by sliding in close just as you pass
-also has good reads in general for intercepting ground passes
-picks up on patterns well
-has hot and cold streaks
-needs to find a main tho

Boohead86 the legend
-has a respectable offense that can be scary at times
-makes solid defensive reads -> shooting conversions against other shooters
-predictable when he doesn't focus on changing his shot selection
-is really the only pure shooter left

-gets shots off fast, he doesn't hesitate when trying to score
-knows where to score grounded shots from, and uses backslide -> shot well
-however mostly uses random shots, giving him a style based on luck (I'd recommend mixing in a few more setups)
-has solid start ups, tends to favor pass back-> pass to birdo -> backslide -> shot, but will change if need be
-item cycles well
-defense vs tricksters is pretty poor, could benefit from being more patient with slides to make sure they hit, or maybe just goal camping
-likes to use a lot of aerial passes from back field, allows him to take shots quickly and erratically but can leave him open to a lot of steals if the opponent is patient
-has a strong rebound game
-sometimes uses belgian waffle
-uses mushroom for center serve it ins from the back court
-uses wario special for taking charged item shots from corners

Wouldn't it be better to be more specific with each player? How/when/why is more important no?

This is how everyone has played me. I'll prob update this if I come back.

Tree - has all qualities a great Waluigi user should have. Executes tricks well but is not a consistent threat on each and every possession. Very good if given the extra 1-2 seconds. Not a very good defender after the initial shot has been made, but his style could have improved. Considered to be in the 'top tier' of knowledge and complete understanding of Strikers, along with a few other people. Could be better with consistency and a few 'go-to' moves.

Ju - Great player who never seems to want to win. Does unnecessary tricks when another move would have sufficed. Annoyingly does not go for the kill but straggles along so the opponent could catch up. Great item user and is a great Daisy player. Never scared to insta or take advantage of any opportunity. Innovative. Has his own invention/special move which consists of slowing down his characters - good mindgames. Great trickster with unlimited potential, but personality lets him down when trying to take the win from the opponent.

Is he a SWAGGER Player? NO

Reason: He is not a consistent player.

His Rating is: 7.5 out of 10
