Welcome to SMASHBl0G! In this blog I’ll be making posts about our favorite game, SUPER SMASH BROS. Specifically, Melee and Smash 4 Wii U. I want to use this blog as a way to help organize my own thoughts about my career as a competitor, but also as a sort of teaching mechanism for people interested in reading about smash. I’ll write about matchups, tournament experiences, theorycrafting, and so forth!
So if you’re interested in learning more about competitive smash as a fan and/or as a competitor, then this bl0g might interest you. Or maybe you just want to hear me ramble.
I suppose I should introduce myself! My name is Rishi, and my gamer tag is SmashG0D. I have been competing in tournaments since November 2005 – I was 11 years old (which I hope helps explain the fact that I named myself “SmashG0D”…). For the next several years, I would enter tournaments here and there, always following the competitive scene, but never fully diving in. I began entering tournaments more frequently about 4 or 5 years ago, and since then my motivation to improve has grown. I currently compete in Melee and Smash 4. In Melee I main Marth, and in Smash 4 I main Kirby (though Corrin is my FOTM).
I’ll probably make a bl0g post at some point that gives a more in-depth history of my career as a smasher, but for now I hope the basics suffice.
I have a lot planned in order to help myself improve as a player, and I hope that I can help others along the way. If you want to reach out to me, please check out my Twitter (@SmashG0D) – I am usually good about responding to tweets! Additionally, I stream Melee and Smash 4 Wii U on Twitch (twitch.tv/smashg0d), so if you’re interested in watching, please follow the stream so you get notifications when I go live!
That’s all for today. I hope to have new content out soon, and as we get the ball rolling, I will come up with a consistent schedule for writing.
