Smash Ultimate pro Samuel ‘Dabuz’ Buzby was in for a rude awakening when his Glitch 8 opponent whipped out one of the most obscure fighters in the game.

After falling down 2-0 in the losers quarterfinals set, Brian ‘Cosmos’ Kalu opted to change fighters from Inking to his Smash 4 main Corrin.

While he made waves with the Fire Emblem fighter back on the Wii U title when he won The Big House 8, his Corrin had been missing in action during Ultimate’s lifespan until now.

When all looked lost, Cosmos pulled out the Corrin.

“A lot of people feel this is one of the worst characters in the game,” a commentator remarked as the third round began. “She’s definitely the worst sword character for sure.”

In fact, in an exclusive interview with Dexerto, Cosmos seemed to echo that statement. “All of her specials are really weak,” he told us. “If they made them stronger, I think she would be a pretty viable character.”

Despite all the criticisms against his own character, the Texan was on a warpath with Corrin. Not only did he manage to bring the set back at two games each, but he also took the win in dramatic fashion.

With the fifth and final game even at two stocks apiece, Cosmos pulled off an incredible read on Dabuz by charging neutral special as Rosalina drifted and scored a wicked kill at just 84%.

To end the match, the Corrin player connected with a sharp back air to complete the comeback and emerge victorious against all odds.

Cosmos would go on to finish fourth at the Maryland tournament. TSM’s Gavin ‘Tweek’ Dempsey ended up winning the entire thing after a bracket reset by Mario main Rasheen ‘Dark Wizzy’ Rose.

It will be interesting for fans to see if this new momentum will carry over into the 2020’s first super major Genesis 7.

The stacked event, which features Tweek, Dabuz, Dark Wizzy, Cosmos, and MKLeo begins January 24.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel unleashed his signature rage on Smash Online as lag cost him the chance to potentially win a game. 

As one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, xQc garners a huge audience anytime he goes live – and especially when he tries out a new game too.

Some viewers might be there to get his actual take on the game, to see if it’s worth buying themselves if its a new release, but others are there hoping to see him completely lose his mind and lash out at how bad it is, in a way that only he can. 

During his November 27 stream, the former Overwatch League star dove into the world of Smash Online, and while he managed to win a game, he wasn’t exactly overjoyed by the experience.

xQc is never one to shy away from giving his opinion on things.

After a nearly five-minute-long fight, where he was using Cloud against Lucina, the Candian lost it as lag started to hamper the game – preventing him from pulling off moves or avoiding his opponent. 

As he was defeated, xQc let loose on his opponent and the connection. “Congrats man. Dude, I genuinely hope that you spend your entire life getting good at this piece of s**t f**king game, and you go to your local tournament, and you win enough to buy a f**king router, you broke a** p**sy,” he exclaimed. 

xQc then turned his attention onto Smash itself. “I f**king hate this game, it’s so trash – holy s**t. Oh my God, get a router man. I can’t dude, this s**t is f**king trash! Get me out of here dude.”

The streaming star eventually closed the game off, opting to play a few different games before bringing his stream to an end for the day. 

While some fans might hope he goes back to Smash in the future, at least for a game or two, xQc might not be willing to – especially if he comes up against opponents with terrible connections.
