    Version 1.1.0 of Pokkén Tournament DX brought many welcome changes, but one of the most important changes was the introduction of the Command Input Recorder. 
     
    Free Training's Command Input Recorder gives players the ability to "record" an opponent's movements. This is important as it allows players to practice various options that couldn't be consistently practiced before. It's been over a month since the feature released, and the Command Input Recorder is still leading to new discoveries and players becoming more consistent. However, it can be a bit confusing knowing where exactly to start when recording. To help with this, Double has released a new video explaining how players can get the most out of this feature.
     
    Many high level players have already shown just how useful the Command Input Recorder can be, so this video is highly recommended for anyone looking to improve at Pokkén.

    The first FSBC Cup for 2018 has begun! This event will take place from January 1 (today) to January 8 - longer than the first three FSBC Cups but slightly shorter than the most recent Cup. The event will use the standard 1 on 1 format.
     
    Like with all of the official FSBC Cups, there will be a special title given to all participants. Remember that to receive your special title, you must play at least one match to completion. The "League Master" titles will once again be awarded to the top 100 competitors. Good luck to everyone aiming for the top to start off 2018!

    Sorry that these results are late! Due to many of the site's writers spending time with their families and friends for New Year's (and Rightmeow and I getting engaged!), we weren't able to get these results up yesterday. Better late than never, though, so here are the results for the final FSBC Cup of 2017!
     
    The FSBC Thunderclap Press Cup was the second official Group Match to use the Team Battle format, and the first to last more than four days - this Group Match lasted ten days instead! Players who placed in the top 100 have received their special titles for their accomplishments, so be sure to check the group in-game to receive your placement as well as your rewards!
     
    You can find the top 100 players from the FSBC Thunderclap Press Cup below. Keep in mind these results are for North America specifically, as we do not have easy access to the Europe and Japan rankings. If you participated in either of these Group Matches and wish to have your region's rankings shared here, please email jetsplitbusiness@gmail.com.
     
    We'll be posting information about 2018's first official Group Match later today, so be sure to check back. Oh, and Happy New Year's!

    Team Calyptus, a German eSports organization, announced the start of their Pokkén Tournament division today. To populate this new division, the team has signed not one, but two stellar Pokkén competitors: Gintrax and ToSaix.
     
     
    Both players are strong competitors and active members of the community, with Gintrax also streaming and creating valuable content like his Detailed Character Rundown Charts. The acquisition of these two players is an excellent start for Team Calyptus, so it's exciting to see how the organization rides this Pokkén momentum moving forward.
     
    You can read the official announcement from Team Calyptus on their website, although the site is in German. Be sure to keep an eye open for Respawn #6 in early 2018, where you can see both Gintrax and ToSaix representing the Team Calyptus brand!
     
    You can congratulate Gintrax and ToSaix on Twitter, and you can follow Team Calyptus here.

    When Pokkén Tournament released for the Wii U back in March of 2016, a lot of the earliest competitive players came from the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U scene. Both games being on the Wii U, coupled with the fact that many Nintendo fans are also Pokémon fans, lead to the game immediately catching the eyes of many Smash players. While many of these players are still playing Pokkén to this day, there are also those who ridiculed the game for some arguably unfair reasons.
     
    An example of this is the argument that Pokkén is just a glorified game of "Rock-Paper-Scissors" - in reality, Pokkén is a much deeper experience and virtually all fighting games have a "Rock-Paper-Scissors" dynamic if you boil them down to their basics. A Smash player ridiculing Pokkén in this way isn't a bad person by any means, they're just used to the unique nature of Smash - a game that doesn't follow a lot of the trends that traditional fighting games follow. Pokkén and Smash are two very different experiences, and naturally there are some people who like that, and some who don't.
     
    ESAM, the 18th ranked player in the world in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U according to the PGR, is an example of a player who thoroughly enjoys Pokkén and the unique experience it provides. ESAM has been playing Pokkén since the title released, and now with the Deluxe port releasing for the Switch, he's decided to share his thoughts on the game and why he believes it deserves a second chance in the spotlight.
     
     
    Did you enjoy ESAM's video? Did you come from the Smash Bros. scene as well? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to give ESAM a follow!
