A few days ago, there was a post on the Arizona Melee Community group on Facebook. A player by the tag “Link” asked if anyone in Tempe wanted to play. Needing more practice, I didn’t hesitate at the opportunity to learn. A few more people asked if they could come as well and I figured why not since there would be more people to practice with. Players by the tags “Mr. N”, “Nerin”, and “Penguin” showed up as well. We practiced for all of a few hours, but in that time, I learned a lot about something that I never really thought about when playing Melee. Instead of learning to play with my hands, I learned to play with my brain.
Hey! I know you guys haven’t heard from me in a while. Here’s what’s gone on since the last Road to Evo.
Since the last blog, I’ve been practicing extremely hard to try and give the competition a run for their money. In case you didn’t read part 1, I’m headed to a major tournament called Runback. Big names such as SFAT, Shroomed, and Axe will be there and unless I’m playing in the top bracket, I’ll try and get a few signatures here and there since they’re one of the few reasons that I’ve continued playing this game.
