Super Smash Bros Ultimate pro Samuel ‘Dabuz’ Buzby discovered an insane Rosalina shield lock infinite on his stream.

Ultimate has taken the Super Smash Bros scene by storm and has quickly become one of the most popular and competitive Smash games.

As with any game, players are constantly trying out new things and working on improving their play. Occasionally players discover something amazing and this was the case with Team Liquid’s Dabuz when he was practicing his Rosalina.

Team LiquidDabuz represents Team Liquid in Smash Ultimate.

During a stream on October 18 the American shield locked his opponent on the edge of the platform, which astonishingly ended up becoming infinite and only wore off once the opponent was finished off, while there was nothing they could do.

Both players were absolutely stunned by this, questioning what was going on throughout and claiming that they had “never seen this before.”

“WTF was that? I was mashing and I actually couldn’t do anything” they continued, with Dabuz simply staring in disbelief.

He then asked someone to clip it so he could share it in the Rosalina Discord, no doubt to dissect the play and see how it was possible, as well as to find out if it can be done again.

If the move could be consistently recreated, then it would guarantee any player a free win, as there is no way to break out once caught. Infinite moves like these are generally banned from competitive play as they were not intended to be possible and give players an unfair advantage.

This isn’t the first time an infinite has been discovered in Smash Ultimate, players have found other ways to lock down players before with different characters, such as Link, King K, and even Palutena. 


Animal Crossing player’s crazy Smash Ultimate tournament venue goes viral

An Animal Crossing New Horizons player designed a brilliant Smash Ultimate tournament venue in-game, and many fans are absolutely loving it.

The global health crisis really hurt LAN events for Smash Ultimate and other fighting games in 2020. Many venues that thrived off hosting events suffered immensely, and while players have been missing in-person competitions, that didn’t stop one player from recreating a tournament venue within Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing is chock full of materials and objects that work well to design a fighting game venue, and Redditor ‘timshady11’ made good use of them for their creation.

Anyone who has ever been to a weekly tournament at a bar, restaurant or arcade is familiar with the general layout. You have the front desk for signups and registration, numerous setups for people to compete and a spot designated for streaming high-profile matchups.

The Smash scene got a bit beaten up.

In this case, timshady11 included all of those things and then some. As you can see in the video, there is a desk area by the entrance with a laptop and Smash Ultimate book to keep track of tournament entrees.

Moving on from there, the venue has all sorts of desks with two chairs, a monitor and a Nintendo Switch. In total, we count six of these non-featured setups, which is a respectable number for a weekly event.

The venue also has numerous arcade cabinets, vending machines, booths, couches, and of course, a stream setup. That section is pretty well-made with cameras, a computer, and three couches in the vicinity for observers.

Users on Reddit were certainty impressed with the creation. “Awesome! The aesthetic is cozy and cool, really like the vibe overall,” one complimented.

“This is amazing! It made me really nostalgic for IRL tournaments tho,” another remarked with a frowny face emoji.

If you want to visit the island for yourself, timshady11 revealed it as: DA-3428-2657-9989.

While Smash tournaments have been forced to move online, hopefully, players will get the opportunity to return to their venues in the foreseeable future and duke it out in person once again. Until then, at least there’s always the Animal Crossing island to tide us over.
