I'm too good at this game, what do?

Ok, so basically I don't own an internet connection and only play locally with my friends. We used to have fun when we first started playing and fooling around with characters. However, even at that point it was clear that I was the best player among my group.

Then one day I happened to stumble upon a local play session that was happening in the city for all-stars so I was going to kick everyone's butt. Much to my surprise though I got completely wrecked by these guys who were pulling off techniques and combos that I didn't even think we're possible. Here is a feed of my nub-ness at the time: http://www.twitch.tv/sosgamersinc/b/358568358

Since then I trained a lot by keeping track of the online community and through watching videos online so now I can say that I'm just as good (if not better) than a lot of people at playing this game. Unfortunately, I became so good that my friends don't even want to play the game anymore cause they say I'm just going to win anyway.

I can't play anyone online because I don't own an internet connection and my schedule is too tight at the moment to travel all over the place hunting down random local sessions, especially ones with an entry fee. Should I try to get my friends to play and pretend to suck (I can blame it on the upcoming patch) so they won't be discouraged or what?

I had a similar effect when I played Brawl; people offline are often awful if they either don't own the game or play it casually (shocker, I know). Thing is, you could watch the best of the best and still not be worth a damn with just knowledge alone. For example, I play with Dabuz a lot and I couldn't tell you sh/t about how to play Evil Cole. You actually need to play competitive players if you believe you are at or above their level.

As for how to get your friends into it, play a character you don't know how to use. I found that my casual buddies have a good time when none of us have any idea what we're doing instead of my destroying them and making it not fun for anyone. When they see the game as fun, they'll want to learn and maybe even become good at it. Don't destroy their fun just to prove your superiority and they'll want to play with you and learn how to play the game.

I've never owned Brawl but I did play it a lot on campus.

I did own Melee and I've always mained space animals in the Smash series.
