Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Invitational Tournament Live Reactions!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The ultimate in Nintendo-conducted tournaments.

This reaction log represents the biggest event of all of E3 2018: Nintendo's Invitational tournament for the newly-named Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It features eight invited players from the Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. For Wii U communities, along with commentators. The tournament rules try to combine showing off the game, while also maintaining some degree of tournament normalcy. Can Nintendo pull it off?

I'm the one on the staff that cares the most about competitive Super Smash Bros., so I'm driving the log's material. My KoopaTV colleague RawkHawk2010 represents a dirty casual. Kamek shows up but contributes absolutely nothing. Ryu (Mariosun90) who isn't on our staff but made it to our Discord

You may wish to consult the KoopaTV E3 Weeks 2018 Schedule, so you have a sense of where we've been and where we're going for the rest of the week.

[5:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: "welcome to the family"

[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're interviewing random Smash people.

[5:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhhpf5GOvEA

[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're blurring out everyone's shirts.

[5:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: I feel like Latias probably gets harassed.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Smash players are very prideful that Nintendo didn't support them for over a decade.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: While simultaneously begging to be supported.

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They blurred out a Canadian maple leaf.

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LOL

[5:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Lucky looks like Donkey Kong.

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHHH

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Daisy is really prominent in all this.

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: She's the mascot Echo Character.

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: noo

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Who would I want to be the mascot Echoer?

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dark Pit?

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHH

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SAKURAI

[5:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: MISTEEEEEEEEEER SATAN

[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Coming with a mic and translator.

[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HE'S SPEAKING IN ENGLISH

[5:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: (It literally sounded like how they introduce Mr. Satan at tournaments.)

[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the translator translated him totally differently anyway.

[5:14 PM] Ryu: I'm here

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought he said "Ridley" instead of "really"

[5:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Sakurai hates the people standing behind him.

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: E3 version for tournament.

[5:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Sad!

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You'll be able to play as a lot more characters" in final game.

[5:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: So not 12?

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 12 at the start.

[5:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: Vikki Kitty.

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: VikkiKitty and Vish, with Jordan Kent.

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: I remember her.

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Vish's mic is broken.

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: lmao

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is no one gonna tell him?

[5:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're not doing timed matches?

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Singles, doubles, and free-for-alls with items, eh?

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DOUBLES

[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Winners Round 1 doubles, Smash Ball on, items off.

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo and Armada vs. Abadango and Plup.

[5:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought they always did timed matches for these things.

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess they learned from 2014.

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think they fixed Vish's mic.

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: whoa

[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Complex fighter draft rules.

[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Need to use 3 characters each.

[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And then they get to stick with the character they like the most.

[5:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: They were playing Pokemon music during that.

[5:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dunno if coincidence.

[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're doing player intro videos.

[5:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Since using Pokemon Trainer rules.

[5:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fuck Scarf Boy.

[5:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: criiiiiiiiiiiinge

[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They had Abadango hide a GameCube controller in a toilet.

[5:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Didn't you tell me to route for this person?

[5:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: With the cat?

[5:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.

[5:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Plup.

[5:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well, better him than the other fuckers. :pikachu_laugh:

[5:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're implying that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is named Super Smash Bros. Universe.

[5:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo has Sheik, Mari0, Ike.

Armada has Pokémon Trainer, Kirby, Samus.

Abadango has Mewtwo (his main), Corrin, and Pac-Man (his previous main)

Plup has Ridley, Pit, and Villager.

[5:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Abadango has limp fish hands.

[5:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Samus and Mari0 vs. Corrin and Plup in the Goddess Tower.

[5:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The smoke colours indicate who launched you.

[5:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As opposed to blast beams.

[5:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ridley has the same Air Up A as Charizard.

[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MAri0 missed his Final Smash.

[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Plup and Abadango are getting wrecked.

[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GAME!

[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is it best of 1s?

[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.

[5:27 PM] Ryu: Apparently

[5:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: what does it mean when someone "techs"

[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Called "prat-fall" in Melee's bonuses.

[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's when you press the shield button when landing on the ground or a wall.

[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As opposed to bouncing off it or landing on your back.

[5:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: oh

[5:29 PM] Ryu: it's a nice landing

[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mr. R and Lucky vs. MKLeo and Mang0

[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "They call him Mr. R because Mr. PG-13 is unimpressive"

[5:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: all these people have OoT as their fvorite game

[5:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: "favorite game: fire emblem"

[5:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: the first?

[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Might be the 7th.

[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mr. R: Cloud, Ryu, Little Mac

Lucky: Marth, Bowser, Fox

MKLeo: Bayo, Snake, Sonic

Mang0: Inkling, Link, Ganondorf

[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Guess I'll root for Mr. R and Lucky based on that.

[5:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who got dibs on characters first?

[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Especially if Lucky picks Bowser.

[5:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Surely they fought over Inkling and Ridley.

[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cloud + Marth vs. Bayonetta and Ganondorf

[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf shield-break already

[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Not just using his fist" as he's punching

[5:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Bayonetta still OP?

[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: People say she got nerfed.

[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I actually want Mang0/Ganondorf to win.

[5:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Don't like this stage.

[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THE SMALL BALL LITERALLY JUST ROLLED DOWN

[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lucky's Marth just killed himself with his Final Smash.

[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And share-stock'd.

[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mang0's team is gonna win.

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lucky just tech'd that platform.

[5:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: KO cutscene isn't a definite death.

[5:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: nice to know

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now we have 1v1s.

[5:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: so people don't just give up when it plays

[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo vs. Armada and MkLeo vs. Mang0

[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But we have a DOUBLE ELIMINATION.

[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Smash players are saying Cloud's limit goes away if not used after 15 seconds.

[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: RYU AND BOWSER VS. PAC-MAN AND VILLAGER

[6:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: aka make it not bad?

[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They made it so it's not your only method of recovery.

[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Okay looked like it was Ivysaur's

[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Didn't it?

[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MkLeo vs. Mang0.

[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, but it's not Pokémon Trainer's only option.

[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're playing Splatoon music.

[6:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah he could switch mid-air before recovering but sounds weird.

[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: To pressure Mang0 to pick Inkling.

[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You don't control Super Sonic in this game.

[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Only did 32%.

[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Saffron City does not give enough room for Inkling to do the Ink stuff.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Saffron City stage Inkling Sonic
Rawk's immediate commentary following this picture is asinine. They clearly showed Inkling as needing a lot of space.
Saffron City doesn't provide that.

[6:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: boo hoo hoo

[6:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dudes

[6:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: This Saffron City looks like the City Trial city.

[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ya.

[6:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Plup wants to keep playing as Ridley.

[6:17 PM] Ryu: It isn't that hard to dodge >.>

[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HIGH ENERGY

[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Special guests...

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Villager, Kirby, Pac-Man, Sheik

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHY DOES PAC-MAN KEEP APPEARING

[6:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Thought this was gonna be New Donk for a sec.

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zelda Williams is "canon" for playing as Sheik.

[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pac-Man in the lead because he had a Kyogre.

[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Borrowing Snagret died.

[6:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'm conflicted about Assist Trophies taking stocks when they die.

[6:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Confusing.

[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kirby just Hammer'd Sheik, but Sheik had the Bomber from Kirby.

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So Sheik died but so did Kirby.

[6:22 PM] Ryu: I just noticed Sukapon is an assist trophy

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was this stage in Wii U?

[6:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: I know it was in 3DS.

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, 3DS only.

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Lumiose City)

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wii U had the Kalos League instead.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which is a better stage.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or maybe it was Unova.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ..Nah, Kalos.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sheik was completely oblivious to Villager planting a tree right behind her.

[6:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And then cutting it down.

[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Solgaleo does some crazy flame tackle.

[6:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zelda Williams sucks, damn.

[6:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't like how much smoke there is getting left behind.

[6:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's like everyone is Smoke Ball'd

[6:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not a fan.

[6:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pac-Man wins.

[6:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like the added Smash Ball recover.

[6:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: variety*

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Play Soviet Missile Run!)

[6:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Liked it falling on the floor

[6:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: And rolling

[6:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo went way too low.

[6:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 1 stock to 1 stock.

[6:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Snake is doing crazy damage.

[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SNAKE UP-TILT

[6:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: Are you okay with all this smoke?

[6:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Posting here that Kamek says he recorded his reactions of the Direct.

[6:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NAIRO

[6:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NAIRO WON

[6:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Black Hole from a series or just generic?

[6:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or a reference to the Melee turnip glitch?

[6:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Might be from Uprising.

[6:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh yeah.

[6:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Voting for the dude not with the scarf.

[6:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo vs. MkLeo grand finals. 1v1, Smash Ball off, items off.

[6:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I kinda want ZeRo to win more.

[6:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Unlike years ago, the bracket is double elimination in the finals match.

[6:52 PM] Ryu: First time I see someone wanting Zero to win

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: but I want Bayonetta nerfed

[6:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ZeRo is plumbscum.

[6:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Rooting for Bayonetta

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhh

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I can't root for Mari0. >_>

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Go BAYONETTA AND MKLEO!

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: >__<

[6:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: These airdodges are pretty slick.

[6:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cappy's not helping him.

[6:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, where is Cappy?

[6:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Still has FLUDD.

[6:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Will FLUDD be more useful with directional air dodging back?

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The directional air dodge is really laggy, apparently.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 1 stock to 1 stock.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Huh, Perfect Shield is totally different.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You Perfect Shield when you let go of the shield.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not when you put up the shield.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BAYONETTA WINS THE MATCH

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Best of 3.

[6:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe he'll switch to Sheik.

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SHEIK VS. SONIC

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well this is easy.

[6:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: FLUDD sounds like it might be better now if it can punish air dodgers.

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GO SONIC!

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wait wtf

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GO SHEIK!

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: whoops my bad

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GO SHEIK AND ZERO

[6:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: GO SONIC! was right. :miles_eureka:

[6:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dammit Sonic has big lead.

[6:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...ow.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I really like ZeRo's use of Bouncing Fish.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's using it as an alternative air dodge.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SONIC BACKAIR CUTSCENE

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MKleo wins!

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bracket reset, so now there's another best of 3.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Since MKleo was coming from losers bracket.

[7:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't think I've ever using Bouncing Fish a single time.

[7:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mari0 vs. Sonic

[7:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

[7:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Go...Sonic? >_<

[7:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Does this make up for no Mario Sonic Olympics 2018?

[7:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...maybe?

[7:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nah.

[7:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FLUDD still  useless.

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You know...

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Since they are introducing new engine mechanics like perfect shield...

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...maybe this is Smash 5.

[7:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mari0/ZeRo win match 1.

[7:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: If it's only about basic mechanics than yeah this is definitely Smash 5.

[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Waluigi-coloured Mari0 vs. Sonic

[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In Smashville.

[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...

[7:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Does Waluigi-coloured Mari0 mean I can root for him?

[7:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: no

[7:09 PM] Ryu: Did Nintendo force MKLeo not to use Bayonetta? lol

[7:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dat Spring.

[7:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YO

[7:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SONIC AND MABEL

Smashville Mabel Animal Crossing Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic and Mabel are co-conspiring blue hedgehogs.

[7:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: For the record I like Springs.

[7:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MABEL

[7:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Just not Spring-Men.

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SONIC WIN

[7:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: starting now

[7:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Same match-up.

[7:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot "committal" was a word.

[7:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Someone needs to chop off Mari0's head.

[7:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.koopatv.org/2017/06/the-decapitated-mario-press-conference.html

[7:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...oh yeah.

[7:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Sonic's throws are garbage.

[7:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: His backthrow is stronger in Smash 4.

[7:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It got nerfed though, in Smash 4 by patches.

[7:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Guess it got nerfed again.

[7:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sonic getting destroyed.

[7:17 PM] Ryu: Nintendo wins

[7:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I like this main theme.
