GET READY FOR PARTY CRASH BASH!

Choose your corner, as Spring Man faces off against Springtron.

 

It's time for the next matchup in the ongoing Party Crash Bash event! Once the dust settles in this bracketed tournament, one character from the ARMS game will be crowned ultimate champion!

 

Here’s how it works. Like Party Crash, Party Crash Bash is a limited-time Party Match event with special rules. By playing these matches, you can increase your Lab Level, which then grants you in-game currency and special badges. You can also get bonus multipliers by using featured characters and weapons. At the end of each event, a winning character will be declared based on win percentages. This event will then repeat every few weeks until one ultimate champion is crowned. 

 

Event Time: Friday, 12/07 [1:00 a.m. PST] – Monday, 12/10 [1:00 a.m. PST]

Featured Fighters: Spring Man vs. Springtron

 

Why on Earth they scheduled this for Smash release weekend, I don't know. :facepalm:

 

Still, I always have time for a Party Crash.

Indeed. 

 

 

Had my very first go at ARMS on a demo earlier today. Seems incredible people actually get good at this. Could land a few punches but I missed more than I connected. Movement was clunky at best as well. In short, my game was all over the place. Really baffling this is such a deep tournament fighter; I  suppose it takes a lot of practice to get anywhere.

 

 

Still sore about Dhalsim SF DLC never making it into ARMS.

It takes a good while to get a feel for the movement, it depends on the character but I'd say it's far from clunky. Never has any fighting game felt more like a dance, or an actual fight.

Now I want to get good at it. But I'm already completely sucked into Hyrule through BotW, and my kid keeps asking for more Mario Odyssey co-op, so god only knows where I'll find time for this. *firstworldproblems*

I wondered if that was you as the only other person in the tragically deserted Party Crash lobby just now. Then the list of players recently played against confirmed it. Sorry, the two bouts were fun but I had to leave for dinner and stuff.

 

I’ll be playing some more Party Crash at around 14:25 when the bonus multipliers git gud.

I enjoyed it, too. I would say it was a massive coincidence considering I haven't been on it for ages but sadly probably not...I've never seen such a sorry looking lobby during a Party Crash. Superb game but Smash is likely going to close that chapter. I'll be all over a sequel, if and when it comes.

I was on this post-pub last night and can confirm that lobbies were healthy and bustling, with loads of people dropping in and out. A good time was had by all but me, who was thinking it would be a good idea to go with motion controls after four pints...

Somehow I always forget how good this game is until a party crash comes along. 

 

Just had a brilliant couple couple of hours with some amazing matches. Plus I won 7 one hit wonders in a row. Then went on a loooooong losing streak ;)

Unfortunately Ninjara defeated Ribbon Girl and qualified for the next round, the wanker.

Are people still playing this? I purchased it on release and it never really clicked with me, mostly because BotW took up all my Switch time. As games were released for the system, Arms got pushed further and further down my priority list and now, two years later I’m starting to get into it. What seemed like a shallow button masher to me back then now seems like a really strategic brawler. It really dows feel like an arcadey boxing game that’s action forward. 

What I don’t seem to get is the actual arms system. Is it really Loot Crate based? Are the unlockable arms worth it? How is it balanced? I’ve done Grand Prix level 1-5 but I’m beginning to struggle with the difficulty now. Are there prticular arms I should hope to unlock, and are the characters well balanced?

I went online last night ans it seemed like 80% of everyone in the lobby was the same character, a wee girl with blonde hair. Is she somewhat the best of the bunch? I’ve opted for Springman, trying to learn him fully, but maybe some arms work better with certain characters?

I played a lot of this weekends Party Crash and it’s made me regret not playing more of them.

 

Once the mechanics click, the game is so much fun - and it’s incredibly satisfying playing with motion control and levelling, unlocking arms, art, badges etc.

 

I hope they keep running the Party Crashes running for the foreseeable future.

 

Marvellous game. One of the Switch’s best.

Basically, you went on during a Party Crash which is one character versus another for that weekend. That explains why you saw lots of Min Min. 

 

As for the rest, the unlockable arms are random but you want them all for every character. As much as the characters are different to some degree, the major variable is the arms you're using. There's an enormous amount of depth and strategy when you combine these different variables.

 

It's one of the worst ever fighting games in terms of how it initially presents itself relative to what it really is. It seems to be an expansion on Wii Boxing, mashy, waggly, motion control living room laffs, but it's so so much deeper and more strategic than that. I got into it in a big way but as online thinned out, I gradually lost interest.

 

My advice would be to play online because the single player stuff is poorly balanced and cheap. Enjoy the dying embers of one of the true unsung heroes of the Switch. I really really hope they do a sequel but I suspect this will become a lost classic for future generations.
