He doesn't have it actually sorted out. His visa only lasts until the end of July. TSM/Red Bull are still working to find a permanent fix.
Yeesh. What a bummer. COME ON LEFFEN!
Earlier today Mango posted a stream recap from youtube:
The comments he makes about playstyle and pride in general have me at a loss about (philosophically) how to approach smash for myself.
Someone in the comments said this: "But who's to say the way m2k or armada plays isn't also from their heart? Just like how mango's playstyle fits his personality, the way mew2king plays also fits his personality because he plays by the numbers, he uses counterpicks to make sure he always has the advantage[...]Saying that they sold out because they dont play like mango is bullshit, all mango love aside."
I think this is absolutely true. Mango says he plays for pride, but his pride is not someone else's pride. When he let someone recover from a mistake they made at Summit, the commentators were on his ass about it (especially because he nearly lost the game) but I would've done the same thing. I don't like "obvious" plays to win (I will never like scarflard, and Smash 4 in general is generally un-fun to me because a friend in my group takes it too seriously) but I similarly dislike how a defensive style of play (Hbox's defensive bairs with Jigglypuff) are derided. Arrrgh too much to think about here. Any thoughts on Mango's philosophy?
