Ok. As far as I can tell from the disgusting things you've said so far in this thread is that you're an incel. You're mad that women don't want anything to do with you and you're even more mad that women who are in transition especially don't want anything to do with you.

He's trying to point out that there exist some key differences between men and women (between transgender male-->female and females too) that make your line of reasoning illegitimate. However he's using too broad an example. Calling him an incel won't make that go away. For example the cerebellum is heavily influenced during puberty and even a few years before. It is greatly enlarged in men (20-30% more dense), think of it as a relatively simple but massively parallel processing center. There are few (1-2 million) inputs that branch into billions of pathways then come out of just a few (1-2 million) outputs again. Like a graphics processing unit or gpu. It gives men and XY women (trannies) a major edge in not just decision making speed but physical/motor speed. Ditto in competitive gaming.

Bigotry is not a reason to harass anyone. They act like far right haters.

Has Nintendo react? I mean it's people from THEIR community. Considering they never let those things happening without reacting and taking strong decisions (including killing apps for ex) since they really do care about kids being protect, i'm waiting for some acts.

Smash probably has the worst community out of any fighting game, they have people defending this shit ally did, true it’s legal in some states but doesn’t make it any less fucked up.

Well you might need to get your sights checked because you're off target. I don't even know how you could arrive at some dumb conclusion like that based off of the previous post.

This is how it is with females in competitive gaming, girls form teams based upon sex, they seek it out and none of them ever go very far, because as I said it's tribalism over effectiveness. They all band together instead of trying to form a team based upon meta knowledge, chemistry and mechanical competency. They instinctively handicap themselves and limit their potential.

Guy's seek out the aforementioned in the people they play with, it doesn't matter if it's a guy or girl. Girls rarely fit the role though as they are either bonded together with other girls or they're spread so thin there's no one in the pool to draw from. They can sometimes fill the void but there's a natural reaction time disadvantage with the average female as opposed to even poor reacting males so they are generally not up to snuff.

I mean I'm all for shit posting and calling people names but you're just being dumb.
Imagine being a hero who unironically uses the word female as a noun.

Not that I agree with the tribalism point, but I don't see anything wrong with using "male" or "female" as a noun. They're perfectly valid as both nouns and adjectives, and are handy for speaking of large groups without having to worry about the age split (boys/men, girls/women).

Oy as usual the insults are being thrown back and forth, somthing about this series (Smash) gets the fans in a defensive mood lol

As for the girl, congrats on beating a top 10, most impressive, but I'm 100% with @MrTickles on this one, I think one of the biggest issues today in our youth is they are so thin skinned due to constant social media use.

The constant need for validation by so many is sad reality today, look at this chick, she feels better now...why?

Because she stepped away from the net for a while?

Because she "ignored" the haters?

No, because she received support online, her "validation" to combat the trolls and idiots that just ten years ago the majority would have ignored or laughed off, it's a shame.

Natural Selection 2 had at least one chick (rantology) that I know of that played on the highest tier. Game seems pretty dead nowadays though so I don't know how active the community is at the moment.

Wow I looked her up and she's cute as fuck.

So apparently this guy is a borderline pedo.

was dating a 16 year old guy named Zach. Ally is 28.

blah blah 16 is the age of consent in Japan or whatever. A 30 year old man hooking up with a 16 year old teenager is borderline pedophilia IMO.

Folks should've been thrilled that a young, skilled player had joined their community. All of these old arcade genres -- rhythm games, shmups, fighters, vs puzzle, and any obscure stuff -- have a very difficult time finding an audience among young players. This sounds like it escalated beyond the normal ribbing, joking, trash-talking, and hype of the genre.

But good on them for chasing someone out of their scene. That'll really help others feel welcome. Doesn't matter if she's "thin skinned" because most kids are thin skinned. Try a better method of bringing them into the fold. 🤷‍♀️

I don't know if the Zach guy is a player, its not this person that they have been harrassing. ITs some other kid that this Ally guy has been dating. Ally is 28 and Zach is 16.

Yeah I meant the other player that got beat, by the girl being harrassed. What the fuck is up with the Smash community, man?

"Among young players" I said. How many 15 year olds are showing up to these tournaments? I was under the impression that the tourney participants and the audience skews a bit older.
No idea, I don't associate with the "smash community". Question is do you want kids in a place full of weirdos and apparently pedos?

It'd be nice if kids could participate in the community if they were safe from the concerns you raise. I was a kid who played in the arcades with people older than myself and younger than myself just fine. The tournament scene has been around for decades. If it is still having issues learning how to maintain civility, well... it doesn't reflect well on them.

I'm sure the entire smash community descended upon this girl, thousands of players.

That said bullying is stupid, but don't ever give into this shit online. You'll always get pushed around. It's just words, they can't hurt you if you don't let them.

Some of you need to take a step back and breathe. Reevaluate before you post.

She is a 15 year old girl.

Be the change you wish to see.
He's a 15 year old boy. While I don't condone the behavior it's like you've not been keeping tabs on any of the developments in this thread.

Lol wtf is Nintendo supposed to do? there isn't even any receipts on the so called harassers. All they could do is make some pointless virtue signalling state that people would tear apart anyway.

Best thing they can do is drop this shit sandwich in the garbage and stay far away from it.

The Melee community I think is the one with older folks, the New Smash game community is usually younger from what I can tell. Some of the top players at the end of Smash 4's life were 17 year olds from what I remember.

It's really bizarre how you are purposely going out of your way to misgender this person. It really bothers you that much that she identifies the way she does?

They are talking about a totally different story. A popular Smash player "retired" because he got outed for dating a 16 year old while he is 30. Apparently it had been a rumor in the community but the 16 year old admitted to it and then it blew up from there.

Too often when there is "scandal(aka making tiny thing into big)" it appears that they are guys pretending to be girls. More attention like that?

I remember some "woman" that "leaked" epic bullshit specs of switch before release and white knights defended "her" because transwathevers cant be liars and assholes i guess.

And of course most of he/she said were just bullshit after real specs were out.

If these transpeople want normal treatment, they should stop riding on their identity and just shut up about it. + I bet that many just claim to be trans because they know it gives attention

For this case: Cry me a river, just attention whoring, nobody should care if some derps harras them on the net, block Button is made for them.

There are millions of players that listen to some 14y old psychopat and just laugh, why this should get any more attention than them

How sexy is to be one of these and get the most attention + defence forces activated:
Trans > women> kids > Animals > men
And this right here why Gaf is now a shit hole. Half the gaming forum is comprised of a bunch of bottom feeders.

You know, this makes me miss the old days where you settled your differences with your fists. Too bad Smashers have that miasma of stank that doesn't make my fists want to make contact.

Back in my days during the arcades we settled disagreements quickly and that was that. Until you get good enough to have True Love Making BEEF. Then you take the bros girl and have them suckin them toes on the low.

But these people playing from the safety of their home? Fuck that shit.

The competitive Smash community isn't really Nintendo's community. They serve the broader casual base, and none of this happened on their channels, forums, or games.

“Smash Community”? More like “Trash Community”. There’s so much weird/creepy shit that goes on within its membership. All the more reason that parents might want to keep tabs on that shit before letting their children become a part of it.

hmm weird. I feel like that would be encouraging. It doesn't matter what the people said she just beat a top 10 player. Period. Seems dramatic to let the haters stop you from having what may be a very rewarding hobby playing a game.



edit: Looking at her twitter sees like she went back on her original statement. said she was ok and thanked people for the encouragement. That is awesome.

She was ok after reading bad things on the internet. Tough life.

This is a terrible thread, I hope some of you look back on what you wrote here and gain some insight for it.

It’s all over the top about nothing.
