    Tier List Speculation

    Magic series make sense in a game where everytime you win neutral, it's a free punish that you sit back and watch. But not in a game that has DI and the shield mechanics that Smash does. It's needlessly complicated to explain and understand. And this is coming from someone who played...

    Tier List Speculation

    Every single character I mentioned has multiple, non-committal recovery's that allow them to react, mixup and live for a long time with good DI and through multiple edge guard attempts. Ike has to commit to one of two options unless he's on a wall-jump stage and at least one (side-b) is pretty...

    Ike's recovery is nowhere near top 5. it's like barely in the top half of the cast even. Off the top of my head like 15 characters with better recoveries: Mewtwo, Game and Watch, Puff, Peach, Snake, DDD, Pikachu, Squirtle, Rob, Toon Link, ZSS,Mario, Luigi, Climbers (I think), Kirby, Diddy Kong.

    Sovereign Penguin -- DDD MU Discussion

    We give Ness a really really hard time. It's very hard for him to space properly around our disjoint and grab and when they dont have a double jump they're VERY susceptible to down+b kills which are really insane.

    One change I have literally never understood is why Link's bomb throw speed was nerfed in 3.5, when things like Diddy's SICK banana throw angle and speed were kept. It's not like Link can easily hit confirm from bomb (at least compared to TL) and boomerang was the really overwhelming part.

    well, he IS the most played character (or was, last time i checked). and he's good. but that's still not really dominating or even overwhelming in any sense.

    imprecise language aside, my overall point is that he's not that overbearing in the metagame. he bodies some characters pretty handily but what was the last major he has won anyway? also, no melee characters have had options taken away from them except sheik's chain grabs (which made sense) and...

    sorry to be one of THOSE guys, but why are we complaining about fox again? he was nerfed and are we SURE he is really dominating the metagame to extent that he needs to be nerfed AGAIN? after 3.6 dropped, i think we all agreed there were some unnecessary nerfs to mid-tiers and ALSO that fox...

    after testing him a bit more extensively with zhime and guru, i think his neutral game is still worse than 3.5. his punish game is a lil better imo, but that;s about it. that makes him a slightly worse character. i did think he was at BEST mid tier-ish in 3.5 because there was some ambiguity...

    I don't mind Wolf or Ivy's landing hitboxes but GnWs landing dair landing hit box frickin combos and it also shield pokes me (I have to angle up and then down) :( EDIT: somehow this makes it seem more counterintuitive than ivy's or wolfs. im not coming down strongly on this particular issue...

    Friends, I had a blast commentating top 8 at Blacklisted. But one thing I noticed after commentating Shots Fired which I want to avoid this time is that while I rarely get truly negative feedback on my commentary, I also don't get to know a whole lot of discussion on my strengths and weaknesses...
