I just got my butt beat by this guy who kept rematching me, he was so good I couldn’t avoid his throws. So I started trying to throw him and we went into a throw-only match and I was learning how to spot dodge like he does to avoid my throws. Then he started doing aerials and I learned how to defend against that after he did nothing but that for the next match. I didn’t rage quit and he kept playing and it was the best training ever, even though there was no voice communication or text chat option.
After that I went on to win 4 consecutive 3-player matches where we all played as random characters (the guy who beat my butt had left by then). I got Link twice which helped but it still was a good night of gaming, I improved a lot learning to spot dodge throws and counter aerials from that first guy.
Also, I need a girlfriend haha! No point in dating when I’m about to move though.
