I'm excited to finish work and try this guy out.
Say hello to Misango!!
It seems there can be competitive players using motion controls:
Finally picked this up and it's been a blast. Pretty much exclusively played 2v2 with a friend so far but am planning on trying out ranked soon. I assume pro controller is the way to go for competitive? Motion is really fun but it definitely feels like I'm losing a lot of time on inputs

For example Purunga won the Tokyo Grand Prix and he is a Thumbs Up user and i would say he did so against high level rivals:
Same goes for Junia:
The skill ceiling in ARMS gets a bit higher when using motion controls. Fighting games using the molds stablished by Street Fighter (2D) and Virtua Fighter (3D) tend to incorporate long string of inputs as a way to increase execution demands in high level play. Since these doesn't exist in ARMS as it has a more straight forward move set, the execution demand comes in the form of motion controls. Just imagine the amount of preasure in high level play that is required from a player that executes a more complex motion than just pressing a button.
Basically ARMSfest. This really adds a bit of spice to the game as it serves as a routine braker. Hopefully these events are held up frequently.
Party Crash preview:
i asure you is worthwhile, Gore is not only good but very pationed about the game.
The ceremony for the finals starts at 2 hours 18 minutes. However, the previous part of the video is super interesting still, because it decides the last spot in the final bracket.
Before the finals, suggest looking at this fight of day 2:
DNAMan vs Ninjara, it's a very special fight. Althought not the final fight of day 2 this fought would have probably decided the winner of that tournament.
