Of all the amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, none have remained as consistent a top-level threat from day one to now quite like Link. He’s the most frequently-entered character in tournaments for multiple reasons — if you collect amiibo in any capacity, chances are you’ve gotten your hands on one of the many figurines that will become Link when scanned into Smash. Still, if it were that simple, Mario would also be a frequent appearance, but Link’s power and versatility is what makes him so popular. Realistically, you can train your Link in any way and he’ll put up results. Multiple styles of Link have emerged, each with their own strengths and weaknesses; however, there is one style that has been regarded as the best for a very long time: the one I’m going to tell you abut today!
A recent patch to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has removed the first to five wins (also referred to as FTFW) training method. This allowed trainers to raise their amiibo to Level 50 in a configured set of five matches. Since this tactic was removed, trainers have been struggling to find a way to raise their Figure Players quickly. Nothing on the market comes close to the efficiency and results of first to five wins; however, the method I use feels more efficient than any other I’ve seen since, so I figured I’d share it with the world!
