Okay, I need some help.  I play ssbm for about an hour or two a day because my school is out.  Yet, I keep getting pwn'ed against mere level 9's.  ANy tips or tricks to get better at ssbm?  Anything would help.

Just practice and learn the moves of the characters. That is what I did.

Just get used to the way your chosen character handles and moves... and don't get caught up in using too many special moves.

 

What I need to know is how to beat 3 level 9's... I can beat one easily, but 2 or more is impossible.

Really? I think that it's easier to beat 2 level 9's than 1, for some reason.. :P I think the bots are a bit too dumb, actually. There should be a level 11 or something. They still don't know what mines are..

Practise. The more your know about the game and how each character moves the better you will become. as for tips, spamming smash attacks is NOT the way to go. Use more aerial attacks, dodge more, try to anticipate attack etc. but most importantly you need to play against humans because lvl 9 cpus have repetitive patterns and they dont learn so they will always do the same 1 or 2 things after *x* move every time.

lvl 9s are just dumb computers. you can confuse them by setting food as the only item on very high.

that will mess with their targetting system giving you time to attack from behide 

The easiest way to beat them is to use a lot of air based attacks coming down on them.

when fight 2 lvl 9s target the one with with highest % and keep them apart

when fighting 3 lvl 9s use a hit and run tatic till you win.

last night i kill 3 lvl 9 marths using jigglypuff no items. Jigglypuff is my worst character and marth is my best

 I'm ready for brawl

Go on the defensive. Wait for them to launch an attack, dodge/shield it, then launch a counter attack.

do you use shield or roll? That is most important. And also abuse grabs and smashes.

Learn to grab opponents quickly, and doge easily.

What character do you use most? Were those Marths on a team?

i usually just turn all items off so it's pure fighting skill, while fighting lvl 9's u should try and find a strategy against em, each lvl 9 character has his/her fatal flaw, try out a different techniques

Against lvl 9 Mario's if your facing an edge when they come up behind you then double jump backwards over them they automatically do their fighter stance, making it easy to get a charged smash attack on them.

Just keep practicing learn each characters weakness and exploit it. the best character to practice with is mario since he is the most balanced.
