    Mewtwo seems like a difficult character to get comfortable with, ha ha

    Yeah, I know what you mean :^/ But it was a huge part of my childhood so I can't help but be excited anyway!

    I'm comfortable with Mewtwo, but don't feel like he quite measures up to my Villager or G&W. There's a lot of stuff I could improve on with him.

    I actually checked the Zelda social yesterday on a whim and found you had returned! I was quite surprised.

    Ha ha, well I can't keep myself away from this community forever! I'm too attached to it and the people in it
    This is out of the blue but just curious: Would you just happened to have just been playing on For Glory & find someone named "Trashboat" (using MM/Greninja/Lucina)? Found someone there with your name.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Yeah, that was me! GGs man. Gotta figure out how to get around that Mega Man.
    I'm gonna attempt to bring my Sonic back up to speed.

    Whoo.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    "up to speed"
    Good Sonic pun. :p. What's the impetus?

    The character's bait-and-punish game is basically unrivaled and it's scary.

    Mr. Johan
    Was just trying him out in friendlies a week ago and everything just seemed to "click" at that moment, compared to when it just felt like a mess beforehand.

    I think Robin does have matchups that are more comfortable to play, like Cloud and Fox and Sheik and the big characters, but Sonic's there for the likes of Mario and Diddy where I need to get moving.
    Wait, you talk to Prince Ramen? You live in FL or something>? Ramen's known for not going on social media lol

    Nah, I'm in Utah. We were both part of an old Brawl OTL group that has mostly stayed together over the years. I'm not real close with him but occasionally we talk on the group Discord (he's not really chatty on there eitiher lol). He showed us his pool yesterday.

    I played some friendlies with him and two other guys from there the other day.

    Ah, that's cool!

    We should add each other on Discord, if you want.
    Kofu, how much do you know about Utah's scene?
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I believe the Gamer's Abbey is the biggest tournament around here. I'll have to check out that archive.

    I'm drawing a blank on the Ryu player who beat me in the tournament I went to a few months back (although SDing twice didn't help lol). Lada primarily plays ROB btw.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Oh, I got my brother a Falco amiibo for his birthday. Should be fun.
    Ffamran
    Ffamran
    Yeah, I know since I checked the PR thread and saw Lada listed for ROB. Later checked and it seems like Falco's a secondary or just character Lada uses.

    Gamer's Abbey link if you need it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTW8ZlOabh31ONGl2c7CtUQ/videos.

    Is nqztv affiliated with Gamer's Abbey Utah at all? Some of Utah's players have videos on there.
    How did I not know that Extreme Balloon Trip had been nerfed until today?
    I thought of you and how I fought Lloid followup options against you when I went against BC at the TLOC 1K in DFW last weekend. So, thanks for the practice for that one. =P
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Bowling ball reads are nasty but fun. Nice use of the opponent's tools with Lloid though!

    We'll have to play again sometime.
    Mr. Johan
    Mr. Johan
    Bowling ball reads are those kinds of reads where you're upset you got hit, but you're upset at yourself more for getting suckered into that position in the first place.

    For real though, I'm down for more matches. Just not this weekend though. Back to back events and such.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Pretty much. It's a strange projectile that has more vertical reach than horizontal. Also the fact that it's coded to do more damage as it falls is great.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Oh yeah, Swordfighter's UAir! That move is great.

    I want my 22% autocancel Ganon DAir back tbh
    Ffamran
    Ffamran
    I'm curious as to what would happen if all moves did more damage. Would have to be distributed differently like combo, "check" moves shouldn't be that stronger, but kill moves and Smashes should. It would make Smashes more rewarding... Heh... Bowser with an uncharged 30% Side Smash.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Assuming that equipment doesn't alter knockback values it can provide a good starting point. Or fight amiibos. My Mewtwo amiibo scares me with its ~25% FAir.
    i have something to trigger you... melee G&W's version of Fire
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Why would that trigger me

    I mean, I haven't played Melee in ages so I don't remember details on its version of Fire, although I know it lacks the parachute and I think it puts him in freefall. It was still one of the better recovery options in the game IIRC.

    Now, only having two L-cancellable aerials, that's trigger material.
    | F. |
    | F. |
    Yeah, Fire is like that in Melee

    and you're right on his aerials, i cri evrytim
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Also DTilt has had some sort of huge change in every game. Vertical KO move in Melee, quick poke in Brawl, windbox and late kill move in Sm4sh.

    It probably shouldn't be as quick as it was I'm Brawl but shaving a few frames off the end would be nice.
    Yo, any chance we can play this week?
    Kofu
    Kofu
    You have no idea how mad rage makes me sometimes. You either have to land his frame 15+ smashes, get a gimp, land UAir, or get a 9 or Oil Panic kill. A stronger FAir should be a dream to help kill. Rage works against him so much, especially since his damage per hit is pretty good.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    But hey, let's play again sometime. I need Ganon practice and to work on my spacing.
    adom4

    I love rage for obvious reasons lol.
    And sure i'd love to play again sometime.
    You probably don't have any BADGEs!

    Would it be worth it to bring it up in the CCI? It's another major... Eh... Just saw how sultoon placed and wondered if you'd be interested in Mr. G&W's tournament results.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Hey, that's pretty cool! I have no idea how strong the UAE is but results are results.
    Lavani
    Lavani
    oh yeah no it was HELLA dumb lmao
    it was fun too though ;_;

    Me neither tbh. I almost got PiT but then I didn't, BIS is super bleh to me because I really have no interest in playing around in Bowser's guts, didn't hear good things about Dream Team/Paper Jam
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Really? I heard good things about Dream Team and Paper Jam seems to have decent reviews. I have the game and will let you know what I think of it.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Watching all these vines makes me appreciate how silly Smash is. Mainly windboxes but Smash in general too.
    so I went to go draw hitboxes for rosa usmash and while researching it I discovered the move doesn't actually work the way I thought it did

    it turns out that while her head is in fact intangible, the move's hitbox isn't tied to the crown but is in fact protruding from her neck http://i.imgur.com/LCcIrVp.png

    a bunch of the screenshots didn't save either so rip, maybe I'll make a phone quality one later
    Kofu
    Kofu
    That's really weird tbh. I was juggled pretty bad by it at one point but mostly it was used to snipe my attempts to fall onto her with FAir/BAir, though that could be those hitboxes being more horizontal than anything
    Please refer to this post for clarifications if you got any wrong ideas. Sorry if I gave off the wrong impression. I have absolutely zero malicious intents towards anyone. Promise. Thank you for understanding

    Villager has failed me for the last time and will be replaced by Sheik.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Wow I don't remember changing this. HMM
    So, yo, Cloud got 17th at Genesis, outplacing any other DLC character.

    In just one month, all this power!
    Kofu
    Kofu
    He was primarily a secondary for that placing, though, right? Ryu did better as a sole contender I think. But Cloud is definitely a scary package.

    I was thinking today if they nerfed his mobility so that his current base levels became his limit break levels how big of a hit that would be to his viability.
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    It would be a hit. I don't think nerfing his movement or frame data would do much outside of effectively crippling him. It's very important to him.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I'm not thinking huge nerfs. I'd need to check his current stats to give numbers. But honestly, it's the combination of his range, frame data, and mobility that gets overwhelming. Toning down his mobility seems like the most fair solution from his design standpoint.
    So when are you gonna be ready tonight? Just give me a time and we can organize this =)
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Fair enough. I wish my characters did better against Sheik. One of my friends is quite good with her and I basically stand no chance of consistently winning. Villager feels like my best bet though.

    Oh. I mean to compliment you on your pivot USmashes. It's useful for Game & Watch (since his head is invincible) but haven't used it nor have I seen it used (even on other characters).
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    Oh, thanks! They're actually turnaround JC USmashes, very easy to do and practice! Saves a lot of inputs and timing, as well.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I can do them (not totally consistently, need more practice), it's just something I haven't applied to my game. Same with foxtrotting as my main ground movement, something that Cloud can also do very well.
    The pit boards need a GnW main for the MU analysis. Could ya lend a hand
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Possibly? I'd probably have to play at least one of you, I don't have a lot of experience against Pit. I do think he wins though.
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    (fell asleep cause I got stressed after a bad thing happened. Quite the day)
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Wait, so... tonight or tomorrow night?
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    Tomorrow night sir. Then we will slug it out. Note: I play mega-friendlies so sometimes I pick random and leave luck to heaven
    And with that announcement, Sonic may officially be shelved.

    Gonna Dragon Fang and Lunge my way to the top. <3
    Kofu
    Kofu
    That'd be really nice, too. Maybe make UAir 2's hitbox bigger, I'm really confused when it misses seemingly touching the opponent. I'd also make USmash's hitbox slightly bigger, it basically doesn't have a hitbox behind his head at all and it bothers me when it misses when my opponent is right behind me.

    So his DThrow had a somehow undocumented change like the angle change on G&W's UTilt a few patches back, huh?
    Mr. Johan
    Mr. Johan
    Pretty much, yeah. W e have no idea what to make of it. But now all we need is to make Utilt better and Robin'll be golden.

    So, have you been keeping contact with the guys from the xat chat? I had to get a new laptop a while back and sorta lost everybody along the way. I was wondering if everyone's still around and could maybe get back with them.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Yeah, they're all on a Discord chat now. I'll see of I can get you a join link tomorrow.
    Why do I feel like I'm better at the 3DS version than the Wii U version? It's frustrating.
    come back pls
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Still haven't been able to play much so there's little point atm. I did buy a G&W amiibo yesterday though! It was in the retro bundle. I'll probably use ROB, not sure about Duck Hunt.
    Rawnie
    Rawnie
    It'd be nice to see you around in skype and chat though! D; Everyone has asked about you.

    No Villager? 0_o
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Aw, people care about me!

    I just never got a Villager one. It's one of the more common amiibo AFAIK, shouldn't be too hard to nab one. I also want to get a Mewtwo one.
    I haven't went to a tournament in ages :C

    How's it going btw?
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I'm alright. Still haven't been able to play Smash for months but hopefully I'll be able to again soon. It's the main reason I haven't been on here as much. That, and I've been working a lot.
    I've been enjoying Gravity Falls but I have an issue with a statement Alex Hirsch made in a recent interview and NO ONE TO SHARE IT WITH

    Oh yeah, I got into the first season and a half over the course of the past few days.

    If you haven't made it to season two yet, you're in for a good time~ ;3

    I like classical music, yeah. I usually listen to a classical station while I drive, not because I don't like other kinds of music but because I feel like it helps me focus better.

    I play piano, too, though I haven't practiced as much as I should lately. I know how to play Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King" which is fun.

    Their chaingrabs were a horrible cancer on the metagame (the desynch itself was hard for some characters to get around) but I have to admit you could make their CGs pretty stylish with meteors and forced getups.
    How have you been? o:
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I'm fine with him having a kill throw, it's just too strong when platforms inherently boost it. Besides, DThrow kills were cooler.

    Zelda got some nice buffs this patch. NAir landing lag reduction, USmash knockback buff, and... some tweak to NAir's hitboxes. She's still slow but better.

    Falco's buffs though!

    Also I'd get on Skype but I don't have a computer right now, I'm in Vegas.
    Rawnie
    Rawnie
    The platforms making it kill ridiculously early bothers me too. He's basically Dragon Rush, grabs, and jab. So :/

    Those are nice buffs for her but they don't solve her problems so it's kinda w/e.

    Falco idk :/ still won't ever be brawl Falco (which is ok I guess) so I don't like him.

    I'm in NYC myself. Is it really hot there?
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Only slightly hotter than Utah tbh.

    About Falco, the only thing that bugs me about him now is the lack of hitbox on the end of Phantasm. Other than that he's pretty solid (since it looks like they won't adjust attributes like weight and movement speeds).
    Going to be taking a break from Smashboards. I'll be back to follow Evo though.
    Hey Kofu I think I fought you on for Glory!

    Remember that Toon Link and Meta Knight Battle that ended in sudden death? (If that was you)
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Yep, that was me. I remember that match, lol. I was a little frustrated since I missed a punish that probably would have let me win but the ending was amusing. I guess you were going for a spike?

    GGs BTW! I don't remember a lot of details but I know we both used a lot of characters and the matches were close.
    D
    derpcube
    I don't even know why I thought that was a good idea, I just wanted to win badly since most of those matches were so close.

    Either way It would be fun to fight you again since it's rare to find a good for glory player. Here's my FC 4725-8148-2407.
    How do you feel about G&W v Puff? (Random, but not insanely random I promise)
    Locke 06
    Locke 06
    Friend was talking about how jiggly has no death matchups despite being considered bad. Pulled out a day 1 G&W and dtilt'd every aerial approach to the point of hilarity. I lost because he timed a back air when I was spamming it, but it seemed like I had a really good idea and a better G&W could take advantage of dtilt>her approach.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    How'd I forgot about DTilt? Yeah, that move laughs at Jigglypuff's (and most characters) aerial approaches. If the move arcs it's still possible to get his as you use it, though.

    It's probably one of the strangest changes to G&Was moveset but one that has yet to be fully explored. I think a lot of G&W players have dismissed it.
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Reading that a Mega Man user thinks that Jigglypuff could be a hard MU for Mega. I don't really use him but that just doesn't seem right lol
