Welcome to Shade (and mine's) brain child, Nintendoid. Yes, Nintenoid. You read right, Nintendoid.
Yes, someone is squatting on Nintendoid.
FNF proper is pretty light this week. And by light, I mean non-existant. I'd usually try to host a game myself to keep the boat afloat but things are too busy this week and probably next week too. Luckily, Radical Yoseph (who also has a sweet username) is organizing Dtoid's first Wii U Smash tournament. The first Smash tournament was on 3DS, so it's time to get some HD on and even include some custom move sets!
I think custom moves are extremely interesting to the meta. Diddy Kong is currently in the OU for Smash because his speed, bananas, and 100% guaranteed throw follow ups are all really good. But DK, who's still good by himself, has an insane Dongcopter that somehow spikes too. Link has a bow that's useless unless fully charged but incredible when it is. One of my favorites is Greninja's instant Shadow Sneak, trading power and range for surprising speed.
Be sure to check out the tourney here along with its forum post, which will continue to link to an original post. Oh, and sign up for Nintendoid too if you want in on all the talk that helps solve Nintendo's problem of shitty lobby systems.
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, ect.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the c-blogs followed by a recap post on the front page for last minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Wii U or 3DS
Host: Dtoid Username
NID: Wii U Nintendo ID or 3DS friend code
Time: Time in EST
