    Social Radiant Hero of Legend: Ike Thread

    I may have inadvertently discovered Ganondorf's Dsmash catches Ike out of a techroll away after Flame Choke? There might be a stray limb hurtbox poking out just far enough to get clipped by the first hit, which is something to be wary of. I don't have the means to check a 2-player situation like...

    Buffer System

    Personally, no, it's not hurting my enjoyment at all. With the faster pace of the game, I've been making good use of it by holding the input I know I'm going to need in order to execute them at the earliest possible frame, and it's improved the consistency of my combos considerably. The only...

    About GSP and who you're put up against

    I have no real evidence to base it on, but they might have increased the range of scores we're able to be matched against. My GSP seems to be on the high side for my area, which had the effect of making it so my highest-scoring characters, Ike and Ganon, had longer waits than normal to be...

    A Great Evil Walks the Earth, the Ganondorf in Smash Bros. Ultimate Discussion

    That would indeed be amazing, but it might be too powerful a tool to give to someone as strong as Ganon. All Ganon needs to close a stock is one clean hit a lot of the time, and giving him armor would make it so just about any single-hit ground option gives him the opening he needs to plant his...

    Ike vs Ryu/Ken

    Focus Attack was a serious pain for Ike to deal with even back in Smash 4, but with the changes to landing lag, it should be much less dangerous to work around. You described your friend as "spamming" Focus Attack, but that suggests he was just using it at random all the time, when more likely...

    A Great Evil Walks the Earth, the Ganondorf in Smash Bros. Ultimate Discussion

    I think Warlock Punch is intrinsically flawed and would rather have something else in its slot, but if I had to get a change to it, I don't think even more power is what I'd ask for. It already nearly kills opponents from zero and already becomes a fatal shield break punish after an opponent has...

    Media Match Critique (Ike vs. Roy)

    The only thing I'd suggest that hasn't been mentioned in that Reddit thread would be, try to work Quick Draw into your arsenal. It's absolute pants for damage, and overuse is sure to get you punished, but for someone with mobility as limited as Ike's, having a burst of speed he can pull out both...

    Bad Bowser Matchups

    A few times, but that also seemed to have poor results. It didn't seem like trying to approach Dedede with my back turned was too great an idea, especially with Bair's linear hitbox not being very ideal for catching Dedede when he's trying to float in the air out of my reach and drop Gordos from...

    Bad Bowser Matchups

    Wanted to ask how y'all felt about the Dedede matchup... or specifically, the Gordo matchup. Spent a good while being beaten up by a good Dedede tonight trying to figure out what the big man can do against those things, but if Bowser has a good tool for repelling them, I'm sure unable to find...

    A Great Evil Walks the Earth, the Ganondorf in Smash Bros. Ultimate Discussion

    Palutena could accidentally Warp edge cancel off a platform only to immediately Warp again offstage and die from her own mistakes. Pikachu could (prior to Ultimate) Quick Attack edge cancel, use it again, and die. Corrin could edge cancel their pin attack's landing, accidentally input a down...

    No, the point of that one is, it's not possible nor is there any reason to specifically exempt Wizkick from being usable out of an edge cancel. There isn't specific programming that enables the use of specific moves out of this interaction, this is simply Ganon cutting his endlag short by...

    A Great Evil Walks the Earth, the Ganondorf in Smash Bros. Ultimate Discussion

    I think you've missed my point - that the Wizkick edge cancel is a tool in Ganon's kit, and there is no reason to remove a tool because you should not be killing yourself from it anyway. If what you're suggesting is to remove the ability to specifically use Wizkick out of this edge cancel, well...

    A Great Evil Walks the Earth, the Ganondorf in Smash Bros. Ultimate Discussion

    That's an edge cancel, and some Ganon mains have used it to surprise opponents to good effect, throwing out an immediate aerial after sending them offstage from center stage. There is no conceivable reason you should have a second Wizkick buffered that it'd cause you to immediately kill yourself...

    3.0 Update! No Ike changes??

    Projectiles being a bit less oppressive should definitely make him feel better to play against zoners. I still think the man needs improvements to his ability to space on the ground, though. Link can space better than he can, and he's supposed to be a ranged fighter.

    How to know if you are in Elite Hell?

    Rather than an "Elite Hell" of Nintendo's making, could it be that having too high of a GSP puts us in one of our creation? As a day one player, my highest GSP characters seem to be a fair amount above the average, and I routinely have to wait quite a bit longer to get opponents, as opposed to...
