    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Gonna throw out some food for thought, given the debate over how we determine top tiers: When discussing what makes a character be seen as top tier (or just good in general) or not, there seems to be two schools of thought that most people side with; Potential, i.e. the belief that when a...

    V 6.0 Buff Discussion

    Seeing some talk of A+B smash here, seems like a good opportunity to plug in the resource I made a while back regarding it for those of you interested in its applications and easier ways to use it. Here's the link: https://smashboards.com/guides/the-secret-sword-technique.1234/

    Gonna document the robin buffs here, as not everyone seems to fully understand what they are and how they affect the character. The 5 buffs; Ftilt received increased knockback. For the moment this change doesn't seem to be very significant, as the move never served as anything more than a...

    WIP: The Robin Discord JMU Match Up Chart (the closest to being the definitive MU chart for Robin)

    Can't perfectly paraphrase (and again, I'm aiming to get write ups for each individual MU), but it essentially boiled down to both characters being able and aiming to do very similar things to one another. Both Samus and Robin are adept at catching jumps with aerials and both are good at...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    I believe Thinkaman illustrated it best; our 3 pillars for determining metagame viability are results (which most players eye almost religiously already) and the analysis thereof, usage and the factors that affect it such as playerbase size, concentration of talent, mobility (the playerbases...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Interesting thing about this is that "little Timmy" doesn't matter...unless he happens to win the event with his low tier of choice. Even high level players can play any character for any given reason. Many players that do well aren't necessarily competing specifically to further their own...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    I absolutely agree, though this poses another interesting question; if a given character is fully capable of performing very well consistently but lacks the right players to carry them there, is their viability being judged fairly? I suppose a good way to see that would be like the age old...

    Makes sense, although acquiring said data gets harder and harder the smaller a given characters playerbase is, as there are far fewer players to serve as your sample size, don't you think? So relying on that alone would only prove to be accurate for the most popular (most used) characters...

    What do you think is the right way to go then, out of curiosity?

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Way to sum up everything I've come to realize about tier lists and the community's often times misguided musings on the state of the meta :) I feel like a huge part of the community's fixation on tier lists, solo viability and the like is in part due to a subconscious belief in the...

    Should Hero be treated differently because this is a fighter?

    I mean ok, but I'm just saying it's something that hero is able to attempt. Not to mention that was not at all the point I was trying to make xD

    Should Hero be treated differently because this is a fighter?

    Gonna repost something I said in the CCI thread; I think it's important that we consider not just how much RNG hero relies on, but just how said rng affects mus and gameplay in general.
