Three Nintendo Tournaments Day: E3 2019 Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Featuring Super Mario Maker 2, Splatoon 2, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

This one reaction log will cover the entirety of Saturday's E3 2019 events—sorry EA, you get nothing. We're talking about the Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational 2019, the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019, and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3. Lots of worldly things here.

KoopaTV's staff itself is in Los Angeles (but not in The Theatre at Ace Hotel where these tournaments take place), and the vast majority of this reaction log is just me. RawkHawk2010 is here too. Ryu, who isn't part of the staff and is just a friend, isn't in Los Angeles but does sometimes appear in the log.

[10:53 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/nintendo

[10:59 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Super Mari0 Maker 2 invitational starting now........?

[10:59 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The music stopped.

[11:00 AM] Rawk: @Ryu should probably wanna watch this.

[11:00 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...And the narration started.

[11:00 AM] Ryu: That's not the music I was expecting for an introduction

[11:00 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (We're not in the audience so don't look for us)

[11:01 AM] Ryu: Who's the guy in the middle?

[11:01 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nine.

[11:02 AM] Ryu: I'm still confused by the music choice

[11:02 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This tournament is based on speed-running, and there's co-op involved.

[11:02 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this music from the game?

[11:02 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sounds like Odyssey music but I know it's not.

[11:02 AM] Rawk: presumably

[11:02 AM] Ryu: Never heard it before

[11:03 AM] RawkHawk2010: "Fish"?

[11:03 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You're not going to get through these levels in one try... nobody's that good, at least I don't think."



Yeah because John Numbers isn't here.

[11:03 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Vish"

[11:03 AM] Ryu: Also, I don't know who Nine is

[11:03 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (...me neither)

[11:04 AM] Ryu: I hope dragonfeeney wins, but that's unlikely

[11:04 AM] RawkHawk2010: This isn't fucking Mario music lmao.

[11:04 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Everyone's nodding their head in disapproval of the game?

[11:04 AM] RawkHawk2010: That was retarded.

[11:05 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Three of the four competitors said Dragonfeeney is their favourite to win... the fourth was Dragonfeeney herself.

[11:05 AM] Ryu: The completionist is playing blind apparently

[11:05 AM] RawkHawk2010: Is that The Completionist?

[11:05 AM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.

[11:05 AM] Ryu: yeah

[11:05 AM] RawkHawk2010: Ninja'd.

[11:06 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How much facial hair does The Completionist have?

[11:06 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (This won't finish in half an hour at this rate)

[11:06 AM] RawkHawk2010: There could be baby birds in it.

[11:06 AM] Ryu: The two girls are facing off from the start

[11:06 AM] RawkHawk2010: Is this supposed to only last half an hour?

[11:07 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, Splatoon 2 is supposed to start at :30.

[11:07 AM] RawkHawk2010: I thought this would go on for hours.

[11:07 AM] RawkHawk2010: I thought all three games would get equal amount of time.

[11:07 AM] RawkHawk2010: um

[11:07 AM] RawkHawk2010: overlapping music

[11:08 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (They clearly didn't press A at the same time)

[11:08 AM] Ryu: The crowd is hyped

[11:09 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You don't have a second chance to build speed." As Yellowkillerbee does just that.

[11:09 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The right side is clearly better for speed-running.

[11:09 AM] Ryu: I knew she would have trouble, but that not much lol

[11:10 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For the area thedragonfeeney is stuck in.

[11:10 AM] RawkHawk2010: Koopa Jeep is literally the sequel to the NSMB1 Blue Shell.

[11:10 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yellowkillerbee is now three areas ahead.

[11:10 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Four.

[11:10 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Done.

[11:10 AM] Ryu: oh we got to wait for her

[11:10 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Camera now focuses just on dragonfeeney.

[11:10 AM] RawkHawk2010: Which one was the girl?

[11:11 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're both girls.

[11:11 AM] Ryu: they were both

[11:11 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yellowkillerbee is the blonde.

[11:11 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Hence her name)

[11:11 AM] RawkHawk2010: Which one was wearing the shirt that said "I'm using tilt controls"?

[11:11 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dragonfeeney.

[11:11 AM] Ryu: I'm hoping to stop mishearing Vish for something else

[11:12 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're removing the gags off The Completionist and Abdullah.

[11:12 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And they're not gagging the girls because they already saw the stage.

[11:12 AM] Ryu: I was watching dragonfeeney the whole time, so I missed most of the stage

[11:13 AM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[11:13 AM] RawkHawk2010: me too

[11:13 AM] RawkHawk2010: The Completionist is gonna win.

[11:14 AM] Ryu: uh oh

[11:14 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There's a big blooper that comes out of the top question block."

Cheep-Cheep spawns out

[11:15 AM] RawkHawk2010: I heard "vish" as "bitch."

[11:15 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Well at least this is somewhat closer than before.

[11:16 AM] Ryu: that's what I was referring to :pikachu_lips: @RawkHawk2010

[11:16 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdallah doesn't know Cat Mari0 controls.

[11:16 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Enabling The Completionist to catch up.

[11:16 AM] RawkHawk2010: Wait I thought The Completionist was ahead this whole time.

[11:17 AM] RawkHawk2010: wtf.

[11:17 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But The Completionist doesn't know the controls either.

[11:17 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdallah wins.

[11:18 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Completionist won't be able to complete the level.

[11:18 AM] Ryu: The Completionist is shaking his head

[11:18 AM] RawkHawk2010: I thought The Completionist had moved through the cat section without me paying attention and had made it to a second jeep section.

[11:18 AM] RawkHawk2010: But it turned out he was just stuck there.

[11:19 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WAIT WHAT

[11:19 AM] Ryu: oh

[11:19 AM] RawkHawk2010: LOL

[11:19 AM] Ryu: WAIT

[11:19 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PLOT TWIST

[11:19 AM] RawkHawk2010: I'M DYING

[11:19 AM] Ryu: Well, this makes more sense

[11:19 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NINTENDO SCREWED UP AND THE DRAGONFEENEY AND YELLOWKILLERBEE WERE ON THE WRONG SIDE

[11:19 AM] RawkHawk2010: How the fuck do you do that?

[11:19 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So the dragonfeeney is the big winner there.



But, what, huh? Yellowkillerbee was done playing at the end.

[11:19 AM] RawkHawk2010: I was wondering why the wrong girl looked so happy.

[11:19 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: While dragonfeeney was still using the controller.

[11:20 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well this is sad.

[11:20 AM] Ryu: I didn't expect the rest to suck that much

[11:20 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The girls pick one another as their partner.

[11:20 AM] Ryu: Dragonfeeney is playing Super Mario Maker every day

[11:20 AM] Ryu: but she doesn't play hard levels

[11:21 AM] RawkHawk2010: Dragonfeeny makes me think of Phoenix Wright.

[11:21 AM] RawkHawk2010: Because Phoenix's Japanese name is associated with dragons.

[11:21 AM] RawkHawk2010: And then "Feeny"

[11:22 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Hope we find him!)

[11:22 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Super Mari0 World.

[11:23 AM] RawkHawk2010: This is DKC3.

[11:23 AM] RawkHawk2010: Throwing each other.

[11:23 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're exactly tied in passing the first area.

[11:23 AM] RawkHawk2010: (Reminder that you won't be able to do this with friends online.)

[11:24 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is a well-made level, kudos to Treehouse.\

[11:25 AM] Ryu: This is some Portal 2 co-op level

[11:25 AM] RawkHawk2010: Treehouse made this?

[11:25 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.

[11:25 AM] Ryu: They made the levels last time

[11:25 AM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.

[11:25 AM] RawkHawk2010: Figured it might've come with the base game.

[11:26 AM] Ryu: or Triforce Heroes

[11:26 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're both struggling with these on/offs.

[11:26 AM] RawkHawk2010: Some of these commentator quotes are cringe. "NO YOU CAN'T GO HOME FOR DINNAH."

[11:26 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now a Buzzy Beetle shell is automatically going on and off.

[11:26 AM] Ryu: Abdallah/Completionist are winning

[11:26 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now they're two rooms ahead.

[11:27 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdallah and the Completionist win.


Super Mario Maker 2 invitational Abdallah Completionist team hug
Aww...?


[11:27 AM] Ryu: I don't know who was who in-game

[11:28 AM] RawkHawk2010: I'm always gonna wonder now if the on-screen names are below the right players.

[11:28 AM] RawkHawk2010: Including during Smash.

[11:29 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The objective will appear at the bottom of the screen for the next three courses.

[11:30 AM] RawkHawk2010: Already 2:30

[11:30 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hope they show the correct objective.

[11:30 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMB3, reach goal after hitting 1 P-Switch.

[11:30 AM] Ryu: A night mode level

[11:30 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The objective is presented in-game so hopefully it's fool-proof.

[11:30 AM] Ryu: Music composed by Koji Kondo

[11:31 AM] Ryu: (They should have audio on only one player)

[11:32 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Completionist won first course.

[11:33 AM] RawkHawk2010: I never would have tried to carry a P-Switch through a pipe that I was trying to access so that I could find a way to enter the pipe in the first place.

[11:33 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And wins a three-second head start.

[11:33 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "This is Super Mari0 3D World... wait no it's New Super Mari0 Bros"

[11:34 AM] RawkHawk2010: teabag

[11:34 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdullah was crouching over and over upon finishing first.

[11:34 AM] RawkHawk2010: just say teabagging

[11:34 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The three-second head-start wasn't, uh, applied.

[11:35 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, it's applied at the final course.

[11:35 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: After the three mini-courses.

[11:35 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reach the goal while riding Yoshi in SMW.

[11:35 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So is the final course going to be SMB style?

[11:35 AM] RawkHawk2010: probably

[11:35 AM] Ryu: I hope they have to throw Yoshi at the end

[11:36 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Completionist way ahead.

[11:36 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (No crouching)

[11:36 AM] RawkHawk2010: prehistory preservation

[11:37 AM] RawkHawk2010: I just realized that the word "prehistoric" as the same problems as "post-modern"

[11:37 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Final course...

[11:37 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, it's different.

[11:37 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: History refers to the invention of writing.

[11:37 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMB.

[11:37 AM] RawkHawk2010: I heard a screen capture button.

[11:38 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MAD LAD


Super Mario Maker Bros. NES Boom Boom parachute Abdallah Completionist Invitational 2019
Now Abdallah and The Completionist unsuccessfully deal with MAD LAD Boom Booms.


[11:39 AM] RawkHawk2010: at least there are infinite lives

[11:40 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Completionist ahead.

[11:40 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdallah is right behind now.

[11:40 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now ahead.

[11:40 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Icy-moving platform?

[11:40 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or if you stay still it'll move without you?

[11:40 AM] RawkHawk2010: latter

[11:41 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Watermelon looking bouncers"

[11:41 AM] Ryu: Reminds me of Getting Over It now

[11:41 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yo I want the Gosha emoji back.

[11:43 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mari0 has broken into Lord Bowser's ice home.

[11:43 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lord Bowser can survive more than three icicles.

[11:44 AM] RawkHawk2010: "getting some greens in his system"

[11:44 AM] RawkHawk2010: Bowser eats greens?

[11:44 AM] Ryu: More proteins for Bowser

[11:45 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LORD BOWSER NOOO

[11:45 AM] Ryu: I think it was 10 hits

[11:45 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdallah wins.

[11:45 AM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot the axe can end a level.

[11:45 AM] RawkHawk2010: Who even is Abdallah?

[11:45 AM] RawkHawk2010: Like, where did he come from?

[11:46 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mr. Tezuka appears with a trophy.

[11:46 AM] Ryu: SMM2's producer is showing up

[11:46 AM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot who Tezuka is.

[11:46 AM] Ryu: Is this plastic?

[11:46 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It looks low-quality.


Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational Abdallah wins trophy Tezuka Nintendo producer
I wouldn't want to have this thing in my room.


[11:47 AM] Ryu: uh oh

[11:48 AM] RawkHawk2010: Abduallah is slack-jawed.

[11:48 AM] Ryu: The crowd doesn't seem impressed

[11:48 AM] RawkHawk2010: Staring at Tezuka with his mouth wide-open.

[11:48 AM] Ryu: This is a nice theater

[11:48 AM] Ryu: Treehouse levels confirmed

[11:49 AM] RawkHawk2010: Where is the Bernie DNC-esque protest chant "WE WANT FRIENDS! WE WANT FRIENDS!"?

[11:49 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Keep up the energy."

[11:49 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As we go into Splatoon 2. (20 minutes late)

[11:50 AM] Ryu: Person taking care of the stream is getting fired

[11:50 AM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[11:51 AM] Ryu: Splatoon music, ok, I'm out

[11:51 AM] RawkHawk2010: :ditto_agree:



[11:51 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...

[11:52 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well I'm staying here continuing this.

[11:53 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nine is still here.

[11:54 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Explaining rules.

The audio level is somehow less than the previous tournament even though Jordan didn't get out of his chair.

[11:56 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGBoyz (Japan; featuring Dynamon who keeps changing teams) vs. Lime Soda (Oceania)

[11:56 AM] RawkHawk2010: Every time I hear about Oceania I think it's a fictional place.

[11:56 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like Atlantis?

[11:57 AM] RawkHawk2010: yeah

[11:58 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jordan emphasises Nintendo family-friendly terminology of "splats" than "deaths".

[12:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Jordan made a pincer-Pinsir-Scyther pun)

[12:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oceania has the one female player of the whole tournament.

[12:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Controller issue...

[12:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...finally starting.

[12:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GG Boyz won first game, but the map made it look like Lime Soda would win.

[12:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alliance Rogue (Europe) vs. FTWin (Americas).

[12:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FTwin wins.

[12:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (They're still in pools)

[12:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Based on the Octo Expansion I'm awful using the Baller, but other people using it against me they're quite effective and invincible.

[12:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And it's a popular special weapon.

[12:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oceania got doubled.

[12:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think they're the worst region every time we see them.

[12:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pools over.

Semi-finals are GGboyz vs. Lime Soda and FTWIN vs. Alliance Rogue.

[12:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tower Control time.

[12:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rip Lime Soda got obliterated and now GGboyz is taking a lead.

[12:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...and turned the lead to a win.

[12:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We might've had a controller issue in that one."

[12:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Boooo.

[12:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GG Boyz talking in Engrish in pre-recorded video.

[12:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "My wife is playing [Splatoon.]"

[12:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dude looks like he's 17 years old.

[12:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There was a control issue with Lime Soda and we're going to redo that one."

An audience member boo'd but the rest of the audience clapped them out.

[12:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "That really speaks to the community. A warm, welcoming community, that opens up their tentacles for everyone to come in."

[12:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They just don't want us to watch Smash.

[12:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Lime Soda players' video has them open a pantomimed soda can complete with side-effects, all synchronised.

[12:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: I wonder if crabs will be at Smash.

[12:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Nintendo has actual security)

[12:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ew, worst map in the worst mode.

[12:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz wins game 2 too.

[12:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz easily wins game 3 Splat Zones.

[12:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So they move to the finals and Lime Soda is eliminated.

[1:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Does this mean it's almost over?

[1:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It means Europe and America need to do what Oceania and Japan just did.

[1:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But it'll probably be longer because it's not a massive power imbalance like Japan vs. Oceania.

[1:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Then it'll be Japan vs. the winner in a best of 7.

[1:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Then it's over.

[1:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol at Oceania ever beating Japan

[1:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who mostly wins Splatoon tournaments?

[1:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Japan sure but have America or Europe won ever?

[1:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: America won in 2017, didn't they?

[1:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: I dunno.

[1:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, they did.

[1:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.koopatv.org/2017/06/splatoon-2-world-inkling-invitational-reactions.html

[1:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But the game wasn't even out yet.

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: North America takes the game 1 Tower Control.

[1:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: North America doing some cool wall-ball with throwing clams to their teammate.

[1:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Hungrybox Clam

[1:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Europe takes game 2 Clam Blitz.

As I predicted, it wouldn't be a land-slide like Japan crushing Oceania.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I still need to learn how to use the String Ray effectively.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I've been telling myself to go look up tutorials or something because when I use it the people I try to laser just swim away and I don't accomplish anything.

(I use Sting Ray as a normal Dynamo Roller player)

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is actually a very intense match.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: COMEBACK OBTAINED AND EUROPE TAKES their second game.

[1:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: First Rainmaker match of the day.

[1:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Europe is just not allowed to push the Rainmaker into America's base.

[1:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Going to Game 5.

[1:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kyo squidbagged.


Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 Kyo North America squidbagging double kill
It's hard to, you know, capture squidbagging in a screenhot.


[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GAME.

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: North America wins game 5, so finals, once again, is Japan vs. North America.


Splatoon 2 World Championships Nintendo Stirling Squid trophy tournament
This shiny stirling trophy is what's on the line.


[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (FYI, Smash is scheduled to start in 50 minutes)

[1:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The squidbagging commentated as "dancing" in the replay.

[1:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The crowd is rooting for FTwin.

[1:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FTwin takes a massive lead (9 units left vs. Japan's 71)

[1:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FTwin takes game 1!

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz has two Custom Jet Squelcher users... and an Octobrush.

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With Rainmaker as Game 2.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: America takes a huge early lead.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They can play defence for the next three minutes...

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not really sure how aggressive GGboyz can be with their weapon set.

[1:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Commentators just made the same point)

[2:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Defence successful. FTwin takes game 2.

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz takes an overtime Clam Blitz victory.

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't know where the terminology for getting a "pick" comes from. (Referring to splatting another dude)

[2:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Are strategies in Splatoon referred to as "splat strats"?

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...No.

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not widely!

[2:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's the name of a blog lol.

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz taking massive early lead.

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pft.

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz takes game 4, so it's 2 to 2.

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jordan Kent keeps referring to a gym work-out session with Nine from earlier this morning throughout this tournament.

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe they had a really awkward moment in the locker room together.

[2:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: :trump_smile:

[2:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Game 5 is another Splat Zones, and Japan winning again.

[2:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wonder if having Splat Zones as the two middle games in a row is a natural built-in pro-Japan advantage.

[2:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As opposed to having two Rainmakers or something in a row.

[2:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: America trying an epic comeback.

[2:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And fails.

[2:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz needs to win one more game to win the tournament.

[2:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (And Smash can start on time?)

[2:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: North America takes an early lead of...1.

[2:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And GGBoyz takes a lead of 32.

[2:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Success for FTwin and takes the lead back.

[2:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yikes America screwed.

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: America has one last chance to try to take the win.

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And GGboyz is the Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 winner!

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Right at 11:30 Pacific!)

[2:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (They seem confused on how to hold the trophy as a team)

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Splatoon 2 producer Mr. Nogami appears.

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Seems happy his hometeam won.

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wonder if he'll have an announcement.

[2:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Congratulations to the GGboyz for their second win in a row."

[2:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GGboyz are the only ones who can understand Mr. Nogami before the translator.

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There's something I'd like to share with you."

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We previously announced that Splatfests would be supported for two years."

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We'd like to hold the last Splatfest" next month.

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Video.

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Going over all the past Splatfests.

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CHAOS (Pearl)

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: vs. ORDER (Marina)

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WE ALREADY WROTE THIS ARTICLE

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THIS ALREADY EXISTS.

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND WE PICKED CHAOS.


Splatoon 2 Splatfest Chaos vs. Order final Pearl Marina Splatocalypse
KoopaTV wrote an article that was literally about Chaos Vs. Order (in that wording) five years ago.


[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Splatoon 2 Final Fest: Splatocalypse"

[2:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Shifty Stations from all previous Splatfests will make an appearance, plus unique new gear.

[2:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 72-hour Splatfest, July 18 to July 21.

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Version 5.0 update coming.

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can play Turf War (Splatfest) mode in private battle.

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In this mode, you'll be able to play in Shifty Station stages and night mode.

[2:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Excellent.

[2:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "This will not spell the end of Splatoon 2's online service."

[2:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Despite being the last content update and Splatfest.

[2:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hey @everyone  it's time for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

[2:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We're only 12 minutes behind schedule!

[2:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Vish, Supergirlkels, and EE are commentating.

[2:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SGK is just reading off the screen like an elementary school PowerPoint presentation.

[2:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Ryu

[2:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is when Adol Christin gets shadowdropped.

[2:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: who

[2:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: #MakeTheOceanSafeAgain

[2:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh yeah

[2:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's #WorldOceansDay

[2:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: And Oceania still didn't win.

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, Oceania gets another chance for Super Smash Bros.

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They'll probably get wrecked again like Splatoon 2, though.

[2:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Australians don't do well indoors.

[2:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: This started kind of abruptly.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: These are 6-minute time matches with items.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: At least, for the pools round.

[2:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: That sounds like a bad idea lol.

[2:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well in North America the tournament was ran with 7-minute time matches with items.

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Plup in this?

[2:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No.

[2:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who is that I know?

[2:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Unlike the tournament in America, there's Stage Morph.

[2:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: I've still never experienced Stage Morph once.

[2:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I have!

[2:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's less revolutionary than advertised.

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'd root for Nairo if he was here.

[2:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Where we headed?" You can only Stage Morph between two stages.

[2:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So silly to ask that for the second morph.

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They really should put score display on this.

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For the benefit of the audience.

[2:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeah

[2:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's mainly why I said this was a bad idea.

[2:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In the tournament, they didn't have score display on, but that was fine because that's a skill to keep count yourself.

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But for that no one was spectating.

[2:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Here there are tens of thousands of spectators so it'd be nice for people to know what's going on.

[2:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: "you can't even turn around with it"

[2:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: bullshit

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not while you're shooting it.

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Only before.

[2:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well duh.

[2:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's not what he meant though.

[2:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That is what he meant.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Then that was an even dumber thing to say because that didn't remotely need clarifying.

[2:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder the point was "Daybreak is hard to hit with because you can't turn around with it."

[2:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well, Samus and Pokemon Trainer Final Smashes too, lol.

[2:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's more than understood.

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Samus can angle her's.

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Very different.

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: I honestly think he didn't know you could turn around while walking.

[2:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He said it because, while Daybreak was being shot out, the opponent jumped behind them and Daybreak couldn't do anything about it.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm watching Zackray's Pokémon Trainer closely. You might know him. He usually plays Wolf.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's one of the best dudes in the world.

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is he...winning, now?

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: I can't tell lol.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who knows.

[3:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Waiting for someone to trip up and say "SirJon Numbers"

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zackray is only playing Ivysaur, not the other Pokémon.

[3:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Someone made a joke about how Splatoon 3 will only get dedicated servers if Order wins.

[3:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zackray Triple Finishing his own partner.

[3:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhh

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: commentators are confused

[3:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright I guess Europe takes it.

[3:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: According to their own ruleset.

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not sure what they're waiting for.

[3:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: if the commentators can't keep up then the spectators definitely can't

[3:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're making a big deal out of the "seeding round."

[3:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Seeds don't actually matter.

[3:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So the matches they're playing don't really do anything.

[3:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why are Vikkikitty and D1 not here?

[3:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Aren't they supposed to be important?

[3:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't think these three will be the only commentators for the whole time.

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Team USA video.

[3:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: oh

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ichigo from Team Oceania has braces.

[3:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot Bleach existed.

[3:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Team Oceania apparently loses all these tournaments because of jetlag.

[3:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Remember when Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach were the sacred trinity of shonen manga/anime?

[3:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Now it's probably One Piece, My Hero Academia, and...something else.

[3:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: (Reminder that One Piece may not even be halfway over.)

[3:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joker vs. Bayonetta on stage; they're basically the same family.

[3:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Score tied now.

[3:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Two black-haired edgelords wearing eyewear.

[3:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who...both summon demons.

[3:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: (And shoot guns.)

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tied again, two minutes left.

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah.

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wait that wasn't a tie?

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Huh?

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, Joker wins and Team America gets a point.

[3:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: What is it with Bayonetta speaking a line in Japanese occasionally?

[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: I've noticed it and thought it was a glitch.

[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: It just seems random.



[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: And it happened in the last few seconds of that match, if you heard it.

[3:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/234547-super-smash-bros-ultimate/77363765

[3:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Is the Japanese one her Jū-nen haiyan da yo!?



If so, that's intentional and an easter egg- she has a small chance of saying it when she does her forward throw, since the attack itself is a refrence to Akira from Virtua Fighter and the line itself is his catchphrase."

[3:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: ...Oh.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Commentators excited they're playing on Fountain of Dreams.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Agreed)

[3:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Triple Deluxe final boss music is good music for it.

[3:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: I have it as #1 for mine.

[3:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PAUSE

[3:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: That should be disqualifying.

[3:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Imagine if whoever pressed pause went on to accidentally No Contest the match.

[3:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Morphed into Town & City.

[3:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: What are the worst Final Smashes in the game besides Bowser and Jr.'s?

[3:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhh  Jr's is good.

[3:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jigglypuff's is bad.

[3:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mari0's can't KO.

[3:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Neither can Ridley's.

[3:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: USA wins.

[3:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Now we're playing with energy."

[3:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (the useless seeding vs. Oceania)

[3:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did she mean to say "Now we're playing with power"?

[3:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ew Daisy.

[3:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: wtf

[3:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well the Blossoms are never that nice to me.

[3:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That second Daisy Blossom helped Roy more.

[3:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I didn't know the Beam Sword had that kind of range.

[3:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Roy was stupid at the end.

[3:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Japan getting wrecked.

[3:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: He actually just stood there as she was umbrella-ing under when he couldn't afford to.

[3:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What was he supposed to do?

[3:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Attack.

[3:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Jump under the stage and Up B.

[3:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Better than fucking nothing.

[3:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Friendly Fire on?

[3:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.

[3:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yo this off-stage play.

[3:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dat -6 Australia score.

[3:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well that wipes out the 1v1 win.

[3:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is that a dude in the middle?

[3:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes, all the Smash participants in this are dudes.

[3:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: K wasn't able to tell.

[3:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: There's not gonna be a Fighter revealed here. People need to stop thinking that.

[3:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Halberd?!

[3:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Sonic's Final Smash is also bad)

[3:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Let's face it, that match was looking uglier than the Sonic movie." - EE

[3:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[3:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wrath's head is perfectly radial.

[3:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Vish ditching the commentator's desk.

[3:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: What if the matches are so long because Sakurai is on his flight and they have to keep it going until he arrives?

[3:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: lol

[4:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jordan Kent reappeared.

[4:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: I can't distinguish the in-game audience from the real-life one.

[4:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: America sucks.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not true.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Polt is amazing.

[4:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well they sucked there.

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, now we're FINALLY doing the matches that matter.

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The past hour and a half is basically non-canon.

[4:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why is the DK Rap playing during Smash intermissions, etc. such a meme?

[4:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why does that always happen?

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sound guy really likes it.

[4:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Team Europe still gonna include England post-Brexit? And if so will the flag change?

[4:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uh

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The European Flag has nothing to do with whether the UK is in the union or not.

[4:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well it's most commonly associated with the European Union.

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah, which has nothing to do with whether UK is in there or not.

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The 12 stars has nothing to do with how many members are in it.

[4:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: I know lol.

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So  I dunno wot you're talking about.

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: None of the Europeans here are from UK.

[4:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're from Germany I think.

[4:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: "By the 2010s, the association of the emblem with the EU had become so strong that the Council of Europe saw it necessary to design a new logo, to "avoid confusion", officially adopted in 2013.[11]"

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jordan Kent keeps saying "Palutina"

[4:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: I was gonna say I wouldn't know how to pronounce it if not for Uprising, but Pit yells her name in Brawl.

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: When can we Squad Strike online?

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That'd be a nice announcement to make.

[4:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought we could.

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We can't.

[4:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, it just said Team Europe - Germany.

[4:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: It showed a shot of them at a past tournament with a German flag where I guess they were Team Germany.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: RobinGG's Squad Strike is Peach, Wii Fit Trainer, and Daisy.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (cheater)

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is our first conference tomorrow Microsoft's at 4 P.M. EST?

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes, that's what the KoopaTV schedule says.

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: k

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Then I'm gonna go to urgent care before that.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Before I get blood poisoning.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Alright.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hope you can find a good doctor in Los Angeles!

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: :miles_eureka:

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You'll probably have better luck if you convince them you're an illegal.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Meanwhile, Oceania just won something.

[4:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tiebreaker time.

[4:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: light at the end of the cave

[4:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Light the player already played though, so that's light at the beginning of the cave)

[4:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ghost playing Daisy, Peach, Joker.

[4:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CHARACTER VARIETY.

[4:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: how long til shulk lol

[4:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: See this New Island remix is actually good.

[4:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Meanwhile, there's no way to make the Crafted World main theme good.

[4:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's like the Super Mario Bros. theme.

[4:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fundamentally bad.

[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Daisy is an idiot.

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Whispy got lasered.

[4:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Joker just Rebel's Guard'd a Cucco swarm.

[4:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMASH BALL

[4:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SIRJON ONLY WON BECAUSE OF TWO SMASH BALLS

[4:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Leaving Oceania to lose yet another tournament.

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: America vs. Japan; Wrath vs. Zackray.

[4:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was Splatoon 3 actually announced?

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No.

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They announced the final Splatfest being Chaos vs. Order.

[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Read the log. <_<

[4:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Splatoon 3" has been trending on Twitter ever since the end of the tournament.

[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought you weren't gonna check social media during E3.

[4:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Since when?



[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, turns out you told ME to not use it.

[4:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: exactly

[4:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'm typically only a spoileraphobe when it comes to story.

[4:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: But I'm never that for game announcements.

[4:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Though I guess you could say that's spoiling the story that is E3 2019.

[4:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ooh Wily's Castle.

[4:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Whoa, Joker failed to actually recover.

[4:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[4:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: whoa

[4:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I TOLD YOU POLT IS GOOD.

[4:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: dat shitty Cloud recovery

[4:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cloud's recovery is one of the worst in the game.

[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The fact that Cloud got into that situation to begin with is a testament to Polt's skill.

[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Especially since swords beat Yoshi.

[4:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Devonte has an emotional connection with Wario."

[4:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, that's the first time I've heard anyone have one of those with WARIO.

[4:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[4:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: Some DK Viners have that.

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Let's see if Wario can beat Fox AND Zero Suit.

[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "He might want to be making those funeral arrangements together, 'cause it's not looking good." - EE

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rip Wario

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rip North America

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Finals are Europe vs. Japan.

[4:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sooooo... go Japan!

[4:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: America being green is weird.

[4:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: How did they decide who would be green and yellow between America and Oceania?

[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I dunno.

[4:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Japan = Red and Europe = Blue makes sense but that might be random.

[4:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rip Europe

[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zackray three-stocked Sirjon.

[4:52 PM] Ryu: Japan got Zackray, the others teams don't stand a chance

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Japan is getting stronger and stronger with each round."

[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sounds like an anime scenario.

[4:54 PM] Ryu: "What they like about items"

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We've seen such a plethora of characters"

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We've only seen a few characters today.

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Peach, Daisy, Joker, Wolf, Wario...

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Palutena...

[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Both dudes here have a Lucina.

[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Light's Sheik is all that's left for Europe.


Light Sheik Akasa Cloud back-air finish Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship
Uh...Well... so much for that.


[4:57 PM] Ryu: Sorry Europe

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So...

[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Abdullah, Japan, and Japan?

For the winners of today's tournaments?

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently Europe hasn't been eliminated yet?

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's only three Europeans and Japan has won twice.

[4:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: ""Japan is getting stronger and stronger with each round."

Sounds like an anime scenario."

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: What's the ruleset?

[4:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Miltank Rollout episode.

[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: moo <3

[5:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Don't count Europe out.

[5:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Europe came back during...

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Palutena, Daisy, Peach vs. Pit, Zero Suit Samus, Dark Pit

[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CHARACTER VARIETY

[5:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: ...uhhh

[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[5:01 PM] Ryu: not another 3 stocks

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Europe finally took a stock.

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHOA

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BOB-OMB INTO STITCH FACE.

[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...AND THEY BOTH FAILED.

[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Last stock each. Yet another Palutena vs. Dark Pit match.

[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh hey Europe won something.

[5:06 PM] Ryu: Those are real trophies unlike SMM2

[5:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why does Chrom get such a distinguished crowd chant?

[5:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: aka "Chrom Chrom he's our man!"?

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Japan using Roy, Mii Brawler, and Chrom.

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: booo

[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GO EUROPE.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well.

[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We might not even see Chrom.

[5:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was a really lame finish lol.

[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: lol

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why did this E3 Invitational seem like the lamest one?

[5:12 PM] Ryu: I hope nobody's expecting an announcement now

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: I know why last year's was better.

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's cuz the game wasn't out.

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because the game didn't ex-...

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ya.

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PRESIDENT DOUG BOWSER.


Doug Bowser at Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championships 2019 Bowser Jr. shirt
Hey, Doug, I tried to write this whole article about how you're more than just a meme because of your last name.
And then you go wear a Bowser Jr. shirt.

[5:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: But the Wii U ones were better than this.

[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is someone gonna challenge Doug Bowser to Smash?

[5:12 PM] Ryu: Congratulations

[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ala Hungrybox vs. Reggie?

[5:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Doug Bowser is so uncharismatic lol.

[5:13 PM] Ryu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyFQVZ2h0V8

[5:14 PM] Ryu: Doug Bowser looks older than I thought

[5:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Doug Bowser mostly stares at the ground.

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: One final congratulations.

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai!

[5:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: ADOL CHRISTIN

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT'S A LIVE CONGRATULATIONS.

[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "we have a nice Smash Ball here"

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So when did they film this if they knew it was Team Japan gonna win but they have live captions?

[5:15 PM] Ryu: DLC confirmed for the Direct

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I'll be continuing my work on the next DLC fighter."

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It turned into a Fake Smash Ball."

[5:15 PM] Ryu: "It turned into a fake smash ball" like a fake announcement

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hey, just like the whole tournament.

[5:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: as opposed to DLC fighter(s)

[5:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: "what or who"

[5:15 PM] Ryu: what or who

[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I got one more thing."

[5:15 PM] Ryu: oh no

[5:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: :thinking:

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fuck it's gonna be STEVE.

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: He's a "what".

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Doug Bowser is announcing the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Open June 2019.

[5:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: are you entering that

[5:16 PM] Ryu: Evo will have another DLC character announcement for sure now

[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I better!

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "June 29 & 30

Smash your way into EVO 2019!

The top four players from the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Open June 2019 will win a trip to one of the largest competitive gaming tournaments in the world! Tournament will run June 29 and June 30 based on the player’s home region."

[5:18 PM] Ryu: I like Sakurai's comments about the smash ball

[5:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The ruleset on events.nintendo.com goes to a 404.

[5:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: So can we confirm two Fighters won't be revealed Tuesday?

[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I confirm nothing.



Wow, this was six hours long. Ludwig later joined the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Open June 2019 right after it was announced. According to the tournament organisers, Nintendo announced it a bit sooner than they expected.

  1. I only read through the SMM2 section because that's the only game of the 3 that I give a quarter of a crap about. Sounds like it was really funny. Where am I supposed to go if I want to see it after the live broadcast, again? ^^;
