    Media 2GG: Prime Saga Discussion Thread

    Yes. Initial impressions by players based on what they like in smash (offense, pressing buttons, always attacking, being flashy) + bandwagoning popular player opinions + having an echo chamber of similar opinions = if you don't have what I like to do, then you are trash and everyone who plays...

    @FruitLoop You can be creative for any character not just Lucas. There's no need to stick to the same playstyle that everyone else uses if you do not like it. @Gleam I was going to respond to that Marthcina results comment from earlier but I did not want to go on about results don't tell...

    No, not really. I'll just be repeating myself. I'm not gonna entertain the Ness vs Lucas argument again as I have done so many times during the life of the S4 threads and so have the other Lucas (what Lucas mains, do they even exist?) and Ness mains here. It's pointless. Just play who you want...

    If you want to see Lucas information then this post has some, but the discord has more recent stuff. Link: https://smashboards.com/threads/competitive-character-impressions-2-0.464762/post-23078096 As for down throw to up air, that was a crutch for Lucas mains in S4. Many players have learned...

    That's because you are probably only looking at SoCal tournies or results that only cover top 128 to top 4. There are a ton of Shulks out there, just like there are for other characters. They even have a "shulk on stream" role for their discord which alerts you everytime a Shulk is on stream. It...

    The Smash equivalent could be parrying a shield breaker during Game 5 in a last stock last hit scenario; where your shield is very low and you kill your opponent with a smash attack.

    That's the point. Characters with disjoints can easily juggle their opponents.

    At first glance, Yoshi's Story and Dreamland can be seen as alternative Battlefield's due to the platform layout. They do have blastzone and stage differences but those are negligible if a player is only looking to pick a tri-plat stage to suit their character.

    Part of that is because we run 3 stocks now. Smashers assumed that 3 stocks would ruin Smash 4 and make games last forever or some nonsense like that, because they were too used to the For Glory standard that Smash 4 set. I believe that the only reason we are using 3 stocks in Ult is because the...

    I'd say, that award probably goes to DBZF. When I watched top 8 at Final Round recently, and for previous events around release, all I have seen is corner pressure lockdown with Vegeta assist. Now, it's changed to Piccolo's Hellzone Grenade super and a mix of other characters tools along with...

    The timer doesn't really matter, players can and will run the timer down. BBTAG has a 3 minute timer while DBZF has a 5 minute timer. Having an 8 minute timer has not stopped Smashers from timing out each other in Melee and Smash 4 from what I have seen, so I don't see this arguement going...

    I don't understand why a top tier not being flashy is bad. I'm not sorry that when a player decides to pick a character that they can perform well on is boring for spectators. Bayonetta was flashy in S4, and the community hated it. Melee had wobbling and that got recently banned since the...

    Your best bet is going to be to visit a character discord and wait until a member uploads a video or pictures of the hitboxes. I doubt someone will go through the effort of making a video or an album showing all of the hitboxes for every character, since I have not seen that in any of the Smash...

    As for Big D's Ice Climbers, he played pretty much the same way he does at his locals. Big D missed a lot of grabs and damage from those. In one of his games, he got a landing n-air at 0% but lost a lot of damage because he did not convert it into a grab. Big D played well but he can work on his...
