Project M is a mod of Super Smash Brothers Brawl that plays almost entirely like Smash Melee. Project M-etagame is my effort to record the metagame of this competitive fighter in great detail as it develops. Find out more about Project M-etagame here.  The following data is taken from 5 top videos of the Uprise 10 tournament
