D.A.T.A.S.T.R.E.A.M. stands for Diagnostic Amiibo Tournament Analyzing Strategy Through Experimentation And Matches.

The focus of any DATASTREAM is to experiment with Amiibos to find tips, tricks, training methods, and strategies to better understand, hypothesize about, and evolve the Amiibo metagame. Each tournament will have a specific focus but your Amiibo will not be required to fit the theme. All matches will be broadcast live on twitch.tv/splicestream

What is your best contact email? (I will share this with no one) *
What is your gamer name? *
What is the Character, Personality, and Name of your non-Super Armor Amiibo? Though not required, it is recommended that you have trained this Amiibo to fight specifically against Amiibos with Super Armor or Slow Super Armor. *
What is the Character, Personality, and Name of your Super Armor/Slow Super Armor Amiibo? Also do remember that this is for science so don't feel like you must send only heavier characters with Super Armor. Feel free to experiment *
Submit your 2 .bin files here. Remember, use the naming convention of [Trainer-Character-AmiiboPersonality-AmiiboName].bin for both files. This helps me keep Amiibos sorted more easily. Also, please be sure Learning is turned OFF before submitting. *
Thanks for filling that all out! It's always important for us to be continually testing our assumptions, rethinking our theories, and then testing those. The DATASTREAM will be broadcast on twitch.tv/splicestream starting at 9am Pacific/noon Eastern on Saturday, January 19th! I hope to see you all there so we can have fun and make observations together.
