Online Moguls

Zmario and I are the co-founders of the latest crew, Online Moguls. Sadly, our article was deleted. Though our article is gone, its spirit still thrives in our hearts. Currently, there are six members in the crew. They are Xtrme, Kperfekt722, JtM, Ike6481, Zmario, and myself.

General Info

My user name is GalaxiaD, in case you didn't notice. I was born on July 2, 1991 in St. Louis, Missouri. I'm usually an easy-going, open-minded guy, but there have been some days where I get angry. My first complete article was the "Meta Knight Match-Ups" page, but few people visited it, and it has since been deleted. I sometimes edit an article if there's unreal information or if there's spelling and punctuation errors. Usually, though, you can find me chatting on talk pages or forums. In fact, I've started plenty of forum topics. I'm always willing to chat about anything, so feel free to start a conversation on my talk page.

Smash and I

I've owned every Smash game since the original on the N64. At first, it was all for good fun, even though my skills were pretty good. Then, I learned about the tournament scene, and this is when I started training in hopes of becoming as good as the pros (cue Rocky music). I only improved slightly in Melee, but now I feel like I can take on the world in Brawl. My biggest goal in Smash is to become the Brawl World Champion.

Mains and Secondaries

My main in N64 was Mario, with my secondary being Luigi. My mains in Melee were Mario and C. Falcon, with my secondaries being Fox and Donkey Kong. My mains in Brawl are Meta Knight and Ike, with my secondaries being Lucas and Bowser. After some experimenting, I realized that my skills with Bowser were pretty good. I never got the hang of Fox. Meta Knight and Lucas will be my speed, while Ike and Bowser will be my power (epic rhyme).

Style In Brawl

I usually use Meta Knight when I fight, though I'll sometimes switch over to Ike, Lucas, or Bowser to make my opponent rethink their strategy. I take advantage of Meta Knight's speed and combo ability to rack up damage on my opponent, then I usually finish them with a Down Smash or Shuttle Loop. I sometimes go for a Forward Smash, but it has some wind-up lag. I only use Dimensional Cape for mind games and for a quick escape, though I usually use Mach Tornado to escape my opponent instead. I usually try to take advantage of Meta Knight's great air game by hitting the opponent with an Up Smash or Up Tilt. I'm great at edge-guarding, so beware when you're off the stage! My defensive skills are pretty good, but my offensive skills are my strong point. I usually fight aggressively, but I know when to be conservative as well. Overall, I'm guessing I'm a Professional Amateur, but I've yet to be in a tournament and I hope to be in one soon.

Tier List

Below is my tier list for Brawl. It's completely opinionated, not official, so don't pan it. I'll take suggestions at any time. Also, please note that the characters are a little more balanced in Brawl than they were in Melee. However, I still feel like there are some characters that are better than others, so that's why I made this.

My Opinion On Tiers

As you can probably tell from the fact that I formed a tier list, I'm a supporter of tiers. I truly believe they exist at all levels of play. Statistically speaking, it would be impossible to form a completely balanced roster of characters. Either way you look at it, advantages and disadvantages will always exist between characters. These, in turn, could be easily compared to determine which characters are better than others. Let's compare Fox to Ganondorf, for example. While two professionals using these respective characters could be equal in skill, the vastly different play styles of said characters prevents the professionals from playing at a completely equal level. While Ganondorf is more powerful, Fox is faster and has a projectile. Ganondorf, on the other hand, has no projectiles or any effective ways to deal with them. This automatically gives Fox a severe advantage, since he could run circles around the Prince of Darkness while avoiding his attacks all at the same time. Since Fox's Blaster racks up damage quickly, he could easily use an Up Smash to finish off Ganondorf. If not, then he could edge-guard Ganondorf effectively until he dies, since Ganondorf's recovery is weak. To sum it all up, the PLAYERS can be equal, but all the CHARACTERS are far too different to produce a completely equal match-up at any given time. The tier list is not a guarantee, however. If a professional Ganondorf player squared off against a rookie Fox player, I'd put my money on Ganondorf in that situation. The tier list just gives odds out for every character, the upper ones having greater odds, and the lower ones having lesser odds. The tier list also assumes that the players are of equal level, in which case Fox has a better chance of winning than Ganondorf, but nothing is definite. Examples like these could all be used to prove that tiers exist, and until a roster is made of all the same character, they will always continue to exist.

Responses to FAQ

  • Q: Do you have e-mail, IM, etc.?
  • A: No, I don't have any of that stuff. I only have an Internet connection, and that's all I need to go here and play Brawl online.
  • Q: Are you gay?
  • A: -_- Seriously, people ask me this all the time. NO! I'm all for the ladies and that's it! It even says "I'm single ladies! :)" in my Miscellaneous section, so there's your confirmation. I'm straight!
  • Q: What control scheme do you use?
  • A: Classic Controller

Please note that I'm posting all these because they are asked of me frequently. Please don't edit this section or post any comments here. All questions, comments, and opinions go on my talk page.

My Challenge to the Community

Ready to take the "Galaxia Challenge"? If you really think you are, then progress to the rules. If not, then turn back now. The rules are below.

Rules

  • Play against a Lvl. 9 CPU.
  • Play on Shadow Moses Island.
  • You must use Meta Knight, but your opponent can be anyone you wish.
  • It must be a 3-Stock match.
  • Items must be turned off.
  • No infinite combo against the walls. If you use one, you're automatically disqualified.
  • No handicaps.
  • Damage Ratio must be on 1.0.
  • No time limit.

I did this against Fox in 1 minute and 56 seconds. If you beat this record, kudos to you! Good luck and have fun!

Bonus Question

You know what? These are WAY TOO FUN and should not be waited on. I'm going to start posting these after someone gets a question right! Then, the new one will be up for you! This time, the prize is 20 brownies, because 50 are way too much, wouldn't you say?

Question: What is my favorite song in Brawl?

Answer and User Name: Do I just post it here? Main theme (Super Mario 64). Just a random wild guess *cough*. Maxiscool (talk) 00:18, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Meh. I'll say His World, instrumental version. Zexas A. (talk) 00:32, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Both good guesses, but both wrong, unfortunately. - GalaxiaD (talk) 00:37, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Can we guess again? If so Meta Knight's Revenge? Zexas A. (talk) 00:41, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, one guess per person. But in case you're wondering, no. That's not right either. - GalaxiaD (talk) 00:44, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Well Ok. Zexas A. (talk) 00:46, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Shoot. I looked at the Favorite song forum, but I didn't read it, so I just copied the first thing I saw that GalaxiaD posted. Curse my laziness! Maxiscool (talk) 01:06, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Ultimate Character Battle

Yes, I'm doing this so my version can compete with ParaGoomba's version. He's way too biased towards Ness and Marth, so they'll obviously win. I, however, promise completely equal chances for all characters. No biases here! Let's get started!
