I'm really enjoying using the lower tiers, much more satisfying when you defeat people and instead of being one more of the crowd you're the fool who uses PT.
Just for safety though, I have mains all over the place. PT is low, Wolf is mid, and I'm considering training Ice Climbers, which are rising quickly (M2K lost to the best Ice Climbers player, Lain).
oh, and I was saying you will be looked down, for using IC's, not PT. xD
its kinda like when somebody mains MK, you get negative comments.
Lol, a secret... I used to tourny in melee with IC. Never won with em though. And about the MK deal... It wasnt a band wagon at first. I have used MK since I first played brawl. In the tourny realm, MK was marked as a nub charecter, and to many was mid-teir/low. After about a month MK had gained a new rep of being a face wrecker. But, to be honest, Im about to quit brawl, due to meta. Every one now uses him...

Ice Climber pros are way too spammy. All they do is chaingrab you until you get about 100-120% damage and then they up-smash you. I hate having to play those type of Ice Climbers >.<
You don't have to quit brawl Lastwords? You could quit Metaknight and give other characters a try. Why don't you give Wario a try? He's a high tier and he's fun to play. It's satisfying when you win and he starts laughing. I subed Wario 7 months ago. How about it
I used Ice Climbers for a while and wasn't too bad with them. Now whenever I try to use them it messes me up :P.
I'm afraid I've been using High Tiers lately. I use to use a lot of low tiers, but the characters I use got bumped up on the tier list :P.
Mains: Kirby, R.O.B. (needs a lot of work), and Diddy Kong (I've neglected him for Kirby / R.O.B. training).
Subs: Olimar, Zelda, and RANDOM (basically anyone).
I never understood why people complain about no matches, but basically every time I post I tell all of you I'm free for a match just PM me or post a Visitor Message so we can set up a time.
people just need to get over it, I mean, its not that hard to beat them. Just desynch them, and get rid of nana.
oh, and how cheap it may seem, those CG's take time to practice, not like falco's and D3's. >_>
EDIT: kingslayer, no character can escape an IC's cg. If the player performs it correctly, you can not get out of it, he can take you from 0% to 999%. (hence why they're infinites)
@Bio: I do think Ice Climbers will make it top on the next list, they have a lot of potential even without the grabs. Projectiles, spacing, juggling, decent match-ups against the top tier (except maybe ROB and G&W). Plus, if Balanced Brawl becomes standard, Ice Climbers could easily become top since MK and Snake were gimped and IC remained unchanged.
Oh yea, and most IC players are very good at saving Nana when desynched, Belay has a ridiculous range. Desynching is actually an AT used to deal sh!tloads of damage. I'd say their major weakness would be projectile games, but even then the ice blocks can cancel most projectiles.
@Lastwords?: I actually recommend against you quitting MK, the fact that so many people begin using him actually harms the character since everyone learns how to fight him and a lot of people probably use him wrong. If that's the character you've always liked using, why should you stop using him?
@GC: Ice Climber pros don't rely that much on grabs because everyone who fights them does their best to avoid getting grabbed. The irony is that the best IC technique is to make the opponent fear the grabs so much, that in the process of not getting grabbed their approach game suffers and they get craploads of damage. IC is good at that, a simple combo could deal 50%-70% easily. And most of their aerial moves have killing potential, for those who fight in the air to avoid grabs.
@king: I like your mains, they're high enough for competitive gaming but still relatively underused. ROB has actually gone down on the tier list simply because few people use him so his metagame hasn't advanced. Same happens to DK.
