A Real Smash Course, Made By The Community, For The Community
Mastery in Smash is not about luck or genetics. It is achievable and many players have made their own paths to get there. Although those paths are unique experiences for each player, they are composed of the same elements. MetaLab has collected those elements. Our top priority is genuine knowledge, delivered from the most seasoned players, coaches and creators.

The goal is to provide clear information for those seeking direction.
