The Amiibo Dojo is back in action

Hey guys, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately despite my inactivity. It’s obvious that there are still many of you out there who are interested in training amiibo, so I’ve decided that it’s time to get the ball rolling again. Without the Amiibo Dojo around, the metagame’s gone silent, with very few tournaments and active trainers remaining. Hopefully, when things start picking up again here, the competitive scene can start to reform itself.

In this post, I’m going to be talking about the changes you can expect to see on the site over the next few weeks. Even though the concept of amiibo is almost three years old, we’ve got a lot planned for you guys. Hope you enjoy!

Before I say anything else, I need to make clear that it’s not going to be me who primarily provides new content to you all. My days of amiibo training are still long over. I’ve won seven tournaments now – I’ve seen all there is to see. Instead of me, there are a few dedicated trainers who want to spend some time helping out here at the Dojo.

The biggest and most reassuring change is going to be that, at some point, just about every training guide will receive an update. We have quite the group of trainers ready to provide character-specific information, so suddenly, the idea of having 50+ fully updated guides isn’t nearly as daunting.

Now, if you’ve been keeping up with the site, you’re probably aware that I shut down the contact form and all ways of emailing me. Unfortunately, I no longer have the time nor the energy to respond to the hundreds of emails you guys bombard me with. It’s not a problem, per se, I just can’t find the time to respond to something I’m not really interested in anymore. So if you want to ask a training question, you know the drill – that’s all handled at the Cloud Nine Forums now.

So maybe our goal of having a truly “complete” amiibo training resource will come true now. With the Nintendo Switch on the horizon, and inevitably the ultimate Super Smash Bros. iteration on its way, amiibo training could live on after all. The Amiibo Dojo is now the only training site left – every single other one has either gone dark or inactive. Either way, thanks to the helpfulness of several successful trainers, we’ll be here to help you all through the training process, no matter which console you’re on.
