Is there a thread for people who just want to play for fun without turning everything into a super-serious competition?

I love smash, I love playing online, and I love the idea of having a bunch of friends online to play with, but I'm casual with the game and can't stand the 'final destination, fox, no items, 1v1, stock only' types. Games are meant to be fun, not work.

What's super serious about playing a 1v1 with some people you barely know from a forum? 

Have you actually tried playing a 1v1 without items? It's fun. Doesn't have to be work either. 

Yeah I have and it's not fun at all, to me. Playing stock 1v1 with no items puts me in a VERY specific mood, and if I lose I hate it. I'm only kinda okay at Smash so losing all the time would just take the fun out of it. That's why i play multiplayer, all items, all stages, time battles, oftentimes a random character. If I'm not trying my absolute best I don't care if I lose. Being put in a situation where it's JUST the characters with no random elements or hazards, it stops being fun. Hell, even when I'm winning (which I used to do in that environment), I got bored of that playstyle very quickly. Often the same characters in the same level doing the same moves ad nauseum. 

I happen to love fucking people up with Jigglypuff or King Dedede but I'd never play 1v1 with them because they're troll characters to me. Sometimes I wanna be cool with Lucario or badass with Ryu but I'm not great with either of them and going into a 1v1 fight with them is a recipe for death. I'd basically have to chose Link, Marth, Ness, or Zelda every time and damn that'd bore me. The glory in Smash comes from the chaos that ensues with items and stages and modifiers. Sure, it's base gameplay is wonderful and some of the best in fighting game history which makes it great for competitive play but jesus I have no interest in that. I avoid most online games because losing all the time (due to me being a filthy casual in most instances) is infuriating. 

Do not understand why having a preference and an opinion on what makes a game fun is somehow condemning others. Cat girl is right, it's kind of strange that one has to add a qualifier to subjective statements just to assure certain people that you're not attacking them. Try growing a backbone and stop being offended by people having opinions that don't match up with your own. Gaming is great BECAUSE we have so many different types of gamers and Smash is outstanding because it really does offer something for everyone. I just personally can't stand playing with certain types because it takes all the fun out of it.

All controversy aside. There's a friendlies channel on the Discord where you can set up any kind of match you want.

Where might I find that?

Just realized I've never added the link to the OP. Here's the discord server: https://discord.gg/5qeT2Q3



Signature goes here!

Man, I wish people wanted to play Smash more competitively and explore the nuances of the game more. I can't stand the "all items, random characters, Temple only" types, honestly playing in such a chaotic manner isn't fun at all and drains the game of 99% of its soul and heart. Games are supposed to be fun, not an incomprehensible mess.

Oh and of course, not taking a jab at casual Smash at all, it's just my opinion.

......Runa, all I was suggesting was that competitive play could be fun. I wasn't characterized by any of the things you just wrote in the last paragraph. Don't know why you're mad at me :/

That one paragraph wasn't aimed at you at all. I just don't feel the need to copy-paste a half dozen different quotes to a single response. Mostly in respone to Mzuzek. 

Also, I'm gonna have to make ANOTHER post just to respond to his patronizing post just so you don't think I'm responding to you about it. We're cool, from what I can tell.

See, now you're just being a patronizing dick. When I said it I was simply responding and stating an opinion. when you say it, you're deliberately being shitty to belittle me for not liking things the way you like them. Huge difference.

I am.

But it would have to be right now, otherwise I might not be able to play.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
