Tbh the online play being so bad is just a lack of interest from part of Nintendo, they're happy enough with selling the console and the game, people will buy the online just because is cheap even tho it's super poor quality, meanwhile other companies actually care about their player base and constantly try to improve their servers to have less lag, communities even, melee wasn't built for online play yet it's so good that with slippy's net code you get from 2 to 5 frames of lag at most, giving you the chance to play for fun, training and even tournaments, you know you fucked up when a community surpasses your skill as a company of millions of dollars. it'll be the same with the 6th entry, when will they learn that they can make even more millions if they just invest a little bit in the competitive side of the community?

Thank you to everyone who has been liking the comments I’ve posted on Zero’s videos over the last two months and to everyone who has left a supportive comment also. Thank you also to everyone who has done the same on the video I made in which I recited my essay on giving him a fair and objective judgement. I’m certain he will have been looking at the comments on his videos over these last two months and will have hugely appreciated your support. I hope, as you do, that he’s alright. The community has crucified him. His whole world has been literally pulled from under his feet; most people wouldn’t have survived such an ordeal; I only think there’s a good chance that he is still alive and that he will recover because he is such a strong person - was there ever such a successful Smash player in the 20 years of its history? To illustrate further how unfair he has been treated, I myself have been permanently banned, without warning, from the Smash Ultimate Subreddit for voicing my opinions on the business; when I contacted the moderators about it I only received an evasive and indirect response; this shows that those who condemned Zero did not do so with justice in mind as they do not have the confidence to defend their action. I myself long for a world in which degenerate predatory satisfactions, which Zero was shamelessly crucified to satiate, are despised and in which honour and love and fairness precede above all else. I’m as certain as one ever could be about such a thing that our souls, thankfully, are immortal, and that they retain progressively expanding memory, and that they journey infinitely beyond these outfits of ephemeral bodies; so I am as certain that I and anyone else who wishes alike will reach that world one day, whereat Smash Bros. X1,000 will be there for us to play and enjoy.

So this is how it ends... no more videos because of what he has done in the past. I never thought I would ever see a youtuber end like this. I was subbed for a good bit and learned a bit to, but it is sad to see this channel go. It sucks that he wont be making more videos, but I guess that is for the best since it would probably do more harm then good, especially if he made one of those over done apology videos. Soon even this comment section will be gone, which is for the best, I guess. It is good that he had gotten caught, I just wish he didn't have to stop making videos because of it. At least he seems sorry for what he did, but that doesn't mean that it justifies what he did in the past. Instead of kicking him while he is down (even though he most likely doesn't look at the comments anymore for obvious reasons) and saying good riddance, I will say adios, it was good seeing your videos.

@tyrese is my name yes, I know that. I said that it was still wrong, because it is. He does deserve some of what he's getting since he denied it at first, and the back lash has stopped. He was old enough to know it was wrong with what he did, but he chose to do it anyway. I don't know why, though.

Hey ZeRo; here's another message from this fan wondering where you are. It's been about a month since the accusations were made. Your subscriber count has only dropped to 1.03M from 1.07M which is only 3.7%; I would be surprised if it dropped any more significantly now; maybe there are some people who didn't hear the news and have yet to unsubscribe and also there may be those who have forgotten they had subscribed to you, but I don't think they can make up a large fraction of your subscriber base, really. I think people would listen and accept you if you came back now with a sincere apology. Look at the essay I wrote -- "An objective and fair judgement for Zero" -- at this Twitlonger here , and I also recited it in this video here I've been getting quite a bit of positive feedback from people who agree with me. My conclusion was that you should apologise sincerely both publicly and privately to those you hurt by your behaviour; if they accept your apology and feel that it recompenses how they were hurt, you could surely return to making videos as no-one of consequence would be holding a grudge against you then. There is of course the matter of how much hate haters would throw at you, principally in the comments sections of videos, if you did return -- the haters who love to hate and who would always hate you even if those you've aggrieved had forgiven you. This hate may litter the comments sections a little, meaning you'd need to sift through it to find the useful constructive feedback you used to value when creating. I can't estimate how much of an issue this would be for you; I guess, because you're a champion, you could probably deal with it, and I imagine time would sort it out in the end and the haters would get bored of it eventually. I don't think otherwise you'd need to fear anyone by returning, so long as you followed the advice I put into this message about apologising. I don't think you'd be demonetised and I don't think sponsors would shun you. And otherwise no-one at all would be able to stop you from making content. Come on Zero, you know I'm right; apologise properly and they will forgive you I'm sure and then come back. People will like this post, you will see. You still have lots of supporters and friends; many of them are just too scared by the haters to say anything. Your absence has definitely left a large hole in our entertainment content which nothing has come along to fill -- I mean, there's Samsora, and there are Dark Souls meme videos and there are the constant Nintendo rumours to dwell on, but really nothing is quite the same as what you were producing. We all hope you're alright, wherever you are and that you're managing. We haven't forgotten you, we miss you and we love you.

@Kbxe Beats Thanks a lot for being true. People like you have really helped me through my support campaign for the issue. The haters are as difficult as you say and you’ve put it very well. A little while ago I would’ve added more scathing words here against them so as to agree more and more with you, but I just can’t do that anymore knowing that it does me more harm than good. Thanks again bro.

@Galen Burnett Stop caring about haters (I hate that word) bro. I honestly dont really care if Zero comes back or not, thats his decision. What pisses me off though, are people who are so keen on wanting to destroy someone that they will send hateful comments and completly change their opinion on them. I came to the realization that they do this because they need to feel better about themselves and this is a way of saying "haha you fucked up, you are done for, Im morally perfect and have never done anything wrong". Well I hope they have never looked up at a 14 yo girl and told themselves "damn, this girl looks nice" because thats fucked up and they should all go to prison. Yeah I know Zeros case was maybe more aggravating but still very similar to my example.

Here’s what’s funny: the switch’s online is literally comparable to the wii, but the wii has an excuse because it was released 15 years ago. Since then, technology as a whole has improved greatly. But Nintendo still can’t make a good online service, and to top it all off, they don’t give a shit about fixing it.

If I had to say something then in terms of casual smash, no, casual smash won't die so easily because casual smash bros players who play with items and what not are the majority of the smash fandom. In terms of competitive smash's crumbling pretty freaking fast and will most likely die within a couple of weeks, months, or even a year because online is bad, it wasn't in the evo line up, evo is canceled anyways because of a certain CEO, live tournaments aren't available, nintendo doesnt support us, and of course the most important one being all the allegations being brought up, and zero, you happen to unfortunately be one of em. Disgusting...I looked up to you and now it's over, Nintendo has no reason to support us, evo is screwed, and not a lot of people are gonna wanna watch or play in tournaments. Also last thing, in terms of dlc it's been pretty disappointing for most people and unless they come out with a highly requested character like geno, waluigi, or doom guy (those are just a few examples) then the whole smash community will stop caring about the dlc characters. Dlc reveals and live tournaments are what kept the game alive but since people are no longer trusting of the majority of pro smash players, the competitive scene will die (thx, you freaking pedos) and the casuals will still play the base game but without interesting dlc characters, the casuals will lose interest in a matter of time as well (not now tho, most casuals still love the game). As for me, the game competitively is just not fun anymore and I feel I have more fun playing with friends. I still prefer to play with competitive rules but in terms of tournaments and stuff, nah, i aight going near that stuff. Ultimate will still continue to be my favorite smash bros game and I will continue to play it for years to come and I will still buy all the dlc, including the mii costumes. This is just my thoughts on our current situation and I would love to hear other people's comments below. If you think I'm wrong about competitive smash dying then give me your reasons why you may think I'm wrong. Anyways as for the allegations and victims and what not, that stuff disgusts me and i feel utterly betrayed by zero. Samsora and tweek also disapoint me because they new this stuff, i get why they kept it a secret but it still doesn't make it right. Ill never see diddy kong and little Mac the same again after hearing zeros story. Let's try to improve this community going forward, it dont matter if you are a melee elitist, a sonic/Zelda main, a wifi warrior, a tournament goer, or a casual player. We all need to try our best to improve this community together. Farewell zero, you were a great person up until recently, pls get help and own up to your mistakes. Be an adult about it and don't run away from your mistakes. Be responsible for them. Bye zero, and get some help

An objective and fair judgement for ZeRo. (Comment sectioned to fit.) (Please note that I wrote this before I knew that H.Box had been accused.) I’ve come to my own judgement about Zero after seeing all the evidence available. I present here a balanced opinion fairly considering the bad things about him and also the good things. I conclude that he should not be chased off MNdown. I’ll start in his favour. Regarding his harassment of Jaqueline, the details of which she has already given perfectly. I can see why Zero did this: he had affection for Jaqueline and yet due to his traumatic past had had no experience in relating with females; he didn’t know how to effectively express his affection for her; he perceived that other males considered looking at porn or Craigslist as somewhat masculine and strong (not good, I know, but it’s the truth) and so he felt he was allowed to that, rather than choose a softer more feminine option for his expression - showing her pretty pictures of fantasy landscapes or poetic romantic moments between anime couples maybe; by showing her those pictures he felt he was saying her to her “look Jaqueline, these women are attractive, I’m showing you these women because I think you are also attractive and beautiful”. His spontaneous laughter can be heard in the video, I think on his channel actually, of the housemates sharing Christmas together; it’s a free happy laughter that expresses beautifully how he felt emancipated from his terrible past by at last finding friends; this is the same laughter Jaqueline described as unpleasant, though one can certainly understand why she didn’t like it because she just felt harassed and abused by him. How often did he do this? Jaqueline hadn’t specified. Consider, if he did no more than a few times, how serious really is that? If it was continual and frequent however that is more serious and I’ll discuss that later. Regarding Katie. I do have things to say against his behaviour here but that’s below, right now I’m talking in his favour. He was attracted to Katie, that much is clear. It’s also clear that Katie was also, at least at first, attracted to him to a degree. I think it’s fair to say that he did not read or pick up on how uncomfortable Katie became in their conversations. Again, he had had so little experience in not only interactions with females but in pleasant company in general, due to his traumatic past, that his social skills and understanding were not adequate. He did not at all know how to navigate that situation and felt out of control, pushed along by pressures he could not withstand including male social pressure to get company with females, natural hormonal pressure to mate, natural affectionate and sexual attraction to Katie, fear of rejection and panic that such an happy and surprising occasion would never happen again. Caught up in these emotions and fears he was deaf to Katie’s discomfort. Let us consider it from his point of view: he thinks Katie likes him, he likes Katie, he asks her to masturbate and send him pictures because that’s something he thinks she would enjoy and also that he would enjoy and also it is something I’m sure he must have heard to be accepted practice and to be done by other flirting couples. The ice-cube thing was a fetish; I did think at first that it was a dubious technique to allow a sexually undeveloped female to masturbate without pain, but seeing that he also asked a 16 year-old to do it too I can’t believe that this is the case and I think it must just be an harmless fetish (harmless if the other person is happy to do it, of course). Women are often sexually developed by the young age of 14 and even younger in some cases, this in common knowledge. The reason a teenager is different to a child is because they are passing through puberty; at some point during puberty a person develops complete working sexual capacity and is able to reproduce normally and comfortably, this is before they stop behaving like a teenager and they will still not behave like an adult until some years past this point and it may also be before they have even reached their full height and grown fully in their bodies. Katie had shown Zero a picture of herself. I doubt that Zero saw a child in that picture but rather an attractive, assumed sexually capable, teenager. I don’t think Zero has a fetish for sexually abusing pre-pubescent children. Every male remembers passing through grade-school and thinking himself surrounded by attractive sexually primed girls from an early age (ofter from about 13 or 14). I know that girls of 14 do often all over the Western world have consensual sex with much older boyfriends all the time, such is life; I was aware of this as a young teen and it drove my hormonal-teenage-self crazy. Consider, the minimum age of reproduction must necessarily by young by the standards of evolution so that the human race before it became so superior would have a decent chance of surviving in a wild pre-historic world; humans are mammals after all and their age of reproduction will not therefore by too far removed from that of other mammals; but I don’t need to argue this, biological science proofs this. I believe Zero wanted the nudes for his own pleasure and did not intend to share them with others; if he had done this however this would have been very serious. (Please see further comment(s) below for next part(s).)

This is a shit take. Don't blame victims. If Zero knew they were minors he should not have kept pursuing them for nudes or sexually harassing them.

He should never come back. Ever. What he did is truly unforgivable, imagine how the kids that he played smash bros with feels? Imagine how the 14 year old who he asked for graphic pictures from feels? Could you imagine that? The lives he has tainted with his horrible acts means that he is unforgivable.

If you were expecting us to answer ZeRo then you are right and wrong. Yes, his actions are disgusting and beyond inhumane, but that doesn't mean that we should send him backlash. We are the reason why the competitive smash (if not smash in general), instead of actually helping, we instead add fuel on the fire.

​@Omasta 5 It's not about the community it's about their lives they want to do something they love that they can't because of their mistakes they can regret it and improve but no one cares and they're cast out I don't know if you've ever been in legal trouble but it can and very much will end your life Do you want to give him a second chance just ask yourself look at him after this blows over and think *would he do it again?*

@Lamine Dosso trust me I’m always down for self improvement, I just feel that not many people are gonna give ZeRo that chance. Which makes sense, because it’s not gonna be easy to comeback after doing something that breaks laws. Also communities can live even after big faces leave.
