    This is going to sound counter-intuitive, but I wonder if playing an overall strong character with a few really bad matchups can be more mentally devastating than just playing a straight-up "bad"...

    WaDi's success with Mewtwo at Riptide proved a lot of things to me. 1) WaDi's neutral is fantastic as always, and definitely the best among Mewtwos. But it also shows just how ridiculously...
  • Nobie
    WaDi sees Mewtwo as a high tier, but more importantly as a character he wants to push on his quest to achieve a decent level of success (PGR ranked). What I'm about to say is old hat, and even...

    I found out Mewtwo can get a fairly reliable ledge cancel on Smashville by dropping down slightly from the platform before Teleporting. I'm not sure of the exact angle, but it's not hard to get...
  • Nobie
    As someone who stinks at doing precise Teleport angles and is also afraid of sliding offstage and dying, I find that the angles are quite a bit easier in these cases. The hard part is more a...
  • Nobie
    So I’ve had some time lately to lab Mewtwo, and I’ve found something interesting with how the Teleport start-up interacts with ledges. Basically, when Mewtwo leans up out of a dash or does that...

    Ken is almost inarguably the best Sonic, and yet very few top Sonics try to emulate his style. It's kind of baffling.

    Protobanham has a full tier list out. There are a number of changes from that brief snapshot we saw, and while it's not ultra controversial, there are some surprising placements. The ranks are S...

    MSM 240 is looking to become a major. There's gonna be a lot of upsets for sure. People really want part of that $153K+ prize pool. Edit: Riddles is unsure on Kazuya

    Gorioka, a primarily Joker main, got 1st at Tamisuma in an online 256-player bracket going mostly Mewtwo but also playing a bunch of other characters along the way. Notably, he beat Rizeasu's...

    I'm starting to think that the characters who do well against Kazuya are just the ones that can manage to keep up with or outpace him in damage. In the Esam Kazuya vs Vendetta Shoto exhibitions on...
  • Nobie
    One matchup that I could see giving Kazuya trouble is actually Mii Brawler. He's got the mobility, the frame data, certain specials that can rob stocks early, and (crucially IMO) a burst- movement...

    I've also been thinking a lot about Protobanham's tier list, not least of which because I inadvertently introduced it to this thread. Keep in mind that his reason for maining Lucina (according to...
  • Nobie
    He was trying to figure out where exactly he'd rank Lucina, and surprised himself how low he ended up placing her. The fact that Pikachu and Joker aren't even on the list yet feels like...
  • Nobie
    I don't think Sheik is top 7, but I do think highly of her. I also agree that she doesn't lack kill power and that her kill setups are fine. You just have to put in more work with her then some...
