Less than a month remains until Super Smash Bros. – and, as a result, amiibo training – changes for good. In essence, we’ve been given another shot at bringing amiibo training to the forefront of the community, and it’s up to us to make that happen. That being said, we can’t handle all of it ourselves, and that’s where you come in. Here are a few simple steps you can take to contribute towards the growth of the metagame.
Welcome to the final Amiibo Dojo-sponsored Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament! Four years ago, amiibo were introduced to the Super Smash Bros. scene for the very first time. Since then, we’ve worked hard to study proper training techniques. And now, we’ve reached the absolute – the ultimate competition – are you ready to compete and aim to win a digital copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s final Nintendo Direct presentation showed us a quite a bit. New challengers, new amiibo, new mechanics – and today we’re going to round it all up and discuss its possible effects on the amiibo metagame. It’s safe to assume that no more major information about the game will be shown until its release, which means this may be our last pre-Ultimate analysis before things change for good.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is fast approaching, and as you might have guessed, we’re busy behind-the-scenes working out potential rulesets and tournament guidelines. Of course, no matter what we come up with now, they’ll be changed as the metagame develops. So, then, you may be wondering: how will online amiibo tournaments be hosted in Ultimate? Well, here’s the answer: the same way as in Smash 4. But there’s a bit more to it than that: what if Nintendo adds official online amiibo support? How would that shake things up?
It’s time to revisit an age-old question – one that, three years later, is still submitted to our contact form on a daily basis – was the “Braindead stage” an effective amiibo training method? The short answer is no, but the long answer is why we’re here today: we’re going to break down the “Braindead stage”, clickbait, and how misinformation nearly killed the amiibo training community.
Look, we’re all excited for SSBU. How could we not. Well, I’m tired of waiting and with SALTI wrapping up it’s first season tonight, I want to announce my first 1-on-1 League, simply called, The Amiibo League. In keeping with the idea of trying to get ready for SSBU, the tournament will be set up in such a way as to simulate the SSBU gameplay changes as best we can. May I suggest you come inside and see what it is we are trying to do?
