    Important Carefully Ask PPMD about the Tiara Guy

    PPMD - This may be a question that is too general and unanswerable, but could you share some thoughts on how to play well between stocks? I think I have a huge gap in my game where I seem to always get hit during opposing respawn and during my own respawn I can't seem to get anything going. Do...

    Important Carefully Ask PPMD about the Tiara Guy

    To give a very general answer to a general question, I think WD oos and Fair oos tend to be solid against spacies pressure.

    Anybody else feel like it's way harder to pivot fsmash samus than peach/puff? Wondering if it's just me.

    Important Carefully Ask PPMD about the Tiara Guy

    The powershields are great, but Link really wants you to shield, and any missed PS will give him a lot of pressure. Sidestepping Link's stuff is pretty good. It's probably just better to sidestep the boomerang than to powershield it. I think crisp instant fair oos will punish a lot of the stuff...

    Important Carefully Ask PPMD about the Tiara Guy

    It's really easy for sheik to blow up marth dtilting with SH jump fairs Amsah style. It's more like you should DD camp hard and only approach dtilt when you sense the sheik becoming open to it. I think people's general concept of Marth dtilt is kinda off. The advice is always "Dtilt op, more...

    I've been really inspired watching ARC's marth recently. I love the pivot fsmashes. I'm in the lab practicing them every day now. :o

    Double fairing with the c stick is the way to go.

    Important Carefully Ask PPMD about the Tiara Guy

    Powershield, WD back OOS, retreat fair OOS, dash attack. Try to learn the spots in Falco shield pressure where he is vulnerable. Shield grabbing (or up B OOS at high %) is good if you know it will work (like recognize when he has done an aerial too early). Rolling out of pressure is also...

    Good DI is essential in Marth dittos.

    Oh whoops I missed that set I thought u guys were talking about the pools set where PP beat his Falcon with Marth.

    Wouldn't, on m2k's counterpick, m2k call "FD" then PP sticks Marth, then m2k picks Falcon?

    Have we lost our way?

    SSS was just an example. Cop out excuse is that it's a local. TNE? Same problem. Not a local. Yes, it's "too bad." But it's "too bad" for everyone, not just me or other east coast viewers because when people have to shut off the stream simply cause bracket hasn't started and it's already...

    Have we lost our way?

    The reality is that there is going to be "selling out" if anything is moving from underground/independent to mainstream, and smash is no exception. It's not just the casual scrub on twitch that has a problem with doubles. Lots of players simply don't care about doubles. My big problem is that...
