    Hey, I want to be able to become decent-good at smash. I'm a newbie.

    I really like the look of maining Rosalina.

    just start in practice against a cpu than slowly increase it's difficulty. that's all i ever did since the gamecube.

    What kind of controller are you using? Try any but GamePad and Wiimote (w/Nunchuk).

    Smash Wii U got a lot better for me after I started playing again with the GameCube controller.

    what's wrong with the gamepad?

    I use the wii u pro controller mostly. I would like to use gamecube controllers but the adapter seems to be a myth... unless you pay $150+

    Spent all of yesterday playing 8 player smash with 8 GameCube controllers. Personally, I dont see much difference with WiiU pro controller to a GameCube controller, aside from the flipped shoulder buttons (which I remapped).

    My best tip to improve yourself is play against a single CPU and learn when to attack/dodge/shield, then start adding more players in to learn how to read the flow of battle. And when you want a challenge, make teams against you and learn how to run, counter and control groups of enemies.

    Or just play against people. The more you play, the more you learn.

    how in the hell can you play with 8 gamecube controllers at once? can't you only use 1 adapter at a time?

    You can use the USB ports and the front and back, and IIRC it only actually requires the black USB to function, grey bit is for Rumble and Wavebirds only

    Delayed response is not something you want on Smash Wii U.

    Wii U has 4 USB ports: 2x front, 2x rear.

    Here's a picture of a Wii U with 2x GameCube adapters connected (probably from some Smash Wii U Tournament or so).

    Step 1. Get to know the terminology used in competitive Smash Bros. and play as Diddy Kong
    Step 2. Master Dthrow and Uair (if you don't know what these are, go back to Step 1)
    Step 3. Play in For Glory as Diddy Kong
    Step 4. Enjoy a life full of wealth, riches, and fame
