vVv ChiboSempai: So Keitaro, you won the Testing Grounds bracket today, where players got to try out Brawl in a competitive scene with 2 stock matches. You won the 8 person single elimination bracket beating Umbra, Xzax, and vVv Cheese. Congrats, do you have any thoughts?
Keitaro: Was pretty fun. I went in thinking I wouldn’t win but I somehow came on top. The matches were sooo fast! I actually really liked it. Makes me wonder why this wasn’t considered in the past.
vVv ChiboSempai: Do you think this could become a tournament standard?
Keitaro: I really doubt the tournament rule standards will change but if it became this, I would find it acceptable. I still think SDs would be a problem since you only have 1 stock to come back but the player will just have to fight it out.
vVv ChiboSempai: Who did you use in the tournament, and how do you think this style could change your main, if at all?
Keitaro: I didn’t feel like going Falco so I went all MK beating Umbra 2-0 Xzax 2-1 and Cheese 3-0. I felt like I was playing a shoryuken figher since the matches were so fast and not as annoying since they weren’t so long. Although I didn’t use Falco I think this ruleset works better for him as getting one cg would mean a lot more than it normally would in a 3 stock game.
