Games have been good. For H. I was using my pro controller. Should probably have stayed with it.

Hoooly heck GH lol. Damn good games dude! You had me shakin'

Guess my final scores are 0-2, 2-0 and 2-1

Also I think we'll need a dedicated chat room for next time. Discord is usually the way to go.

Some great matches again. I feel the only thing that stops me is the need to rush in. Just the racer in me, more than likely.

Jesus those were so tense. Couldn't tell who would win it. Thought the character change might win it for me, but you played really well. Think you could've 2-0'd me if you used your rushes sooner! Need to play again some time for sure. And yeah definitely agree about the Discord, much easier than just posting messages on here lol.

Finished my matches with DR as well, 2-0 to me. Was a fun match, had some nice back and forths.

Final results are here.

This was actually really good fun, and I'm up for making it a regular thing if others are? Or just friendlies at some point too. Maybe on an easier day than a Thursday, even if we did all manage to make it today

Oh, it'd certainly be a good thing to have a small tourney from time to time. And seconded on the Discord.
Maybe I could set it up, since I did the Mario Kart one. Maybe make one for SONM as a whole with various room maybe.

Everything is set up on Discord, so SONM is the base with various channels within in. That means if you'd already been accepted into MK8 Weekly, all you have to do is sign in and head for SONM Discord - as it's now been named.

Balance update coming this week. Curious to see how much certain fighters get effected. Also mentioned that we might get a little surprise too, which I'm hoping is a reveal of the next character. Speaking of which, some data miners recently uncovered code names for potential future fighters: https://mynintendonews.com/2017/08/07/n ... atamining/

9 Characters is pretty damn neat, if this is any indication of what we'll be getting. Bit confused with who Twintale could be tho. I know it's spelt as tale, but what if it's a character that fights with two tails. Would certainly be different lol.

Ive been taking a short break from the game, but plan to jump back in full force soon as I try to reach for Rank 20. Younger cousin finally got the game too and he's already catching up quick >,>

If Max Brass is anything to go buy then I can see us getting a new Stage with every new Fighter. As well as 3 new Arms, which is pretty hype! Hoping to see more unique ARM ideas too.

EDIT: Full Patch notes now live: http://www.vooks.net/arms-gets-huge-bal ... xt-update/

All round tweeks and buffs. Love that they are putting in serious work with keeping a balance. Even the little things like Barq getting up faster lol (even tho I despise fighting them).

We're getting a new Fighter with the next Update tho, which i'm even more excited for after those names leaked.

Yeah, really interested how off the wall they can get with new characters as I'm a big fan of the current designs. And the more varied arms the better (though obviously harder for tournaments lol)

I keep dipping in and out of playing, but have worked my way up to 13 in ranked now which I'm pretty pleased with. Had some great matches, often getting bodied in the first round and then adapting to pull it back in the latter 2. Really satisfying!

Need to find time to put in since I've been distracted by other things lately. Still sitting on Rank 10 lol >,> Hoping we get info on this new Character soon too.

Can't really be a Nintendo game without something candy themed these days huh >,> Seems easy to guess what type of fighter we'll get from looking at this. The stage is shaped pretty unique too. I'm mostly excited to see what new Arms we get lol. Gimmie some licorice whips.

I was really expecting something more obvious, but this is a nice surprise. This fighter looks funky. Seems to have a super jump or something for their special too. What's with those Arms?? The spinning effect looks really cool!
