    Optimizing play off stage and at ledge?

    There are phases to his edgeguarding and depending on MU you can really get some mileage from some of them. Opponent was just hit offstage: here you can and should use laser and top as Chalmers noted, aimed to force either a double jump or an airdodge. Against people with mobility specials...

    Robotic Operating Buddy: Yes, it's R.O.B.

    I would say don’t put yourself in a shield situation too often to begin with since yeah it’s bad. Fair and to a lesser extent jab or dtilt oos are the only even usable options and that leaves a huge range he can’t cover. Better to avoid playing oos by using nair and projectiles to put up a wall...

    Rob’s offstage/gimp game is decent since you can place a fastfall fair basically anywhere and still recover. Arm rotor offstage is also good. But yeah rob’s major weakness is rushdown. Top and laser are his best tools and they are unsafe up close. Rob is huge and gets nicked easily in CQC and...

    Robotic Operating Buddy: Yes, it's R.O.B.

    Here you go. Just the thoughts of a rob main since s4. Killing: I actually really like ROB's kill potential in this game but it isn't any one thing. I will say his strongest place to secure stocks is at the ledge. Though ledge isn't as punishing as it was in smash 4, ROB can still do his neat...

    Robo beam timing: it’s grest to force an option when opponent is offstage. I often opt for f/bthrow when opponent is past upthrow combo percent so I can try to get a laser or top or read a jump. Also it can be used when you are recovering to harass ledge. Work on the timing to make it sail over...

    Finally got elite with all characters. Side note: my ken and ryu are fraudulent and I just relied on hard fsmash roll reads to claw my way out of a hole of losses Sitting at 3.808 with ROB, haven't bothered grinding higher but I'm sure it will happen eventually. (Also every time I run into a...

    It could be a fluke or some confounding factor I’m not considering , but I’ve been noticing that the matchmaking algorithm is much more consistently actually giving me players around my GSP now. This also means I’m probably going to never repeat the 98/100 I had in the records for last 100...

    PSA: Please don't be like me and try to get to the top GSP. There was some fun to be had along the way, but in the end when you run into an isabelle intentionally camping the left edge of Onett on 3 minute 3 stock and then trying to cheese sudden death and you lose it and have to repeat five...

    Confirmation, then. But I won't be posting more images, too much hassle! Also I'm starting to go through the roster and getting elite with everyone. I thought it would be kind of a fun challenge but I found out an interesting bit of trivia tonight. Due to that blue "placement"/"estimate" GSP...

    3,442,629 with rob. I suspect the cap is some proportion of my previous GSP to prince ramen's when I played him since I only checked my GSP growth and haven't actually played since.

    3.395 with rob. Ran into Prince Ramen who was at 3.414 with Palutena. Likely close to the ceiling. Unfortunately I don't have the time to grind up there, because let me be clear - it really is a grind. The matchmaking system will match you with the same people regardless of your GSP (you know...

    No, there does not exist an unheard of player online who could show up out of the blue and start consistently taking majors. Of course, there are fast growers who start placing well, and they can start as wi-fi warriors certainly, but it's not on the magnitude you're thinking. I don't know...

    Just one correction - you can actually get an 8-spin gyro and cancel before ROB enters the final, charged state. This is his fastest-travelling and most damaging gyro. Also after only 5 charges the damage output exceeds the fully charged version, so definitely don't use that one ever.
