    Hi! I was going to DM you, but I thought maybe some other lurkers/posters might be interested too - where do you get this data from? I've looked around but I can't find this broad smash.gg data for myself, and I would be very interested in looking into the numbers further on my own time...

    Here's a fun one. Anyone know how the damage compares between Lucina's forward air and Marth's tippered equivalent? Marth's tipper does 1% more. 1%. This is not uncommon. Across most of their useful moves - back air (11.8% Lucina/12.5% Marth), neutral air (8.5% / 9.5%) and forward tilt (11% /...

    Yeah it's literally a tech chase. Pretty much everyone has great options out of tech chasing and get some massive punishes regardless of %. Anyone who doesn't have true follow ups out of a throw (incl. throws that bury) would kill for that off of a grab, and even those like Wolf who do have true...

    Not to rag on you, I appreciate your contributions here, but if you follow this logic to its conclusion then nobody can put forward interesting hypotheses about characters that don't have many results. There's 80 characters in this game dude and the top 10 players aren't each playing 8 unique...

    One reason for Lucina having a better Snake matchup than Marth is that Lucina edgeguards him a little better. Marth can actually struggle to break the armour Snake has on cypher. Case example is forward air, which sourspotted does 8% fresh; the armour threshold is 8% exactly, so if you're even a...

    I've been trying to make Lucas work since day 1 and I don't have a high opinion of him at all. His biggest strength is PK Fire being really good in this engine for a lot of the same reasons most projectiles are good, plus that it beats mashing and covers the horizontal zone everybody plays in...

    Appreciate the time invested for the detailed, thought-out response. @SolidSense I appreciate you taking the time to elaborate on this. Excuse the cop-out, but I stand by the original point: regardless of character, this is where you always start with the matchup. A point worth a reminder...

    There's one main unifying characteristic between these characters: they're some of the only characters that Pika can't just mash on their shield. Pika gets away with so much BS he shouldn't because of pancaking on shields, which is far and away the main reason people struggle with him. The...

    @Curious Villager that Cuphead interview was way back in March, so a good eight months. As for Layton trailer, I honestly don't know what they'd do, a lot of the suspense in these trailers gets wrecked by the Smash logo they almost always include at the start of them. I could see it being set...

    Nice work Remi. Lucas' two strongest assets from the last game, keepaway and grab reward, took a big hit in Ultimate, and those changes to the character, plus the way this game works in general, emphasise his poking game much more. He feels and plays much more like Brawl Lucas, that's not...

    If Pikachu had safe kill power or safe setups/setplay into his kill power, a lot more people would play him. See: Pichu (esp. pre-patch) People are hesitant to call ROB a top-cut character just because we've seen the same song and dance in every game and in every game ROB ends up in the same...

    I dunno about the second half of that first sentence - because when you get down to it, challenging Snake falling whilst holding a nade usually has favourable risk-reward for Snake, especially at mid percents and higher. If you want this to actually give you favourable odds most of the time, you...

    Was this not the same issue of ONM where Professor Layton "crosses over" with Resident Evil, exposing the zombies as drunk undergrad students, and Kyle Hyde beats Batman in a fistfight in a showdown of the greatest video game detectives? (a feature celebrating PL vs PW) I can understand if some...

    Ghost Trick in top 5 is a very pleasant surprise. The recurring trends in that list are puzzle-adventure games and JRPGs, which is a testament to the type of console it was. There will never be anything quite like it again!
