    So... Thinkaman was right about K.Rool's Side B buff fundamentally changing his character. He's still Not Great, but his Side B straight up has to be respected now. I'd even go as far as to say that K. Rool (and Kirby as well) have legitimately kuso tools at their disposal now. Obviously this...

    It's also worth absolutely noting that Samsora was distracted, mostly talking to his stream and playing carelessly. And this fanbase has the gall to use that as an excuse to ban a demonstrably mediocre character? God, what a joke

    There's just one problem; Hatchet Man has 37 frames of startup (compounded by Command selection being active on frame 19)

    I'm not going to mince words: The Hero ban discussion is appalling. The fact that it's being discussed when the community hasn't really reckoned with how broken Peach RNG can be is straight-up unacceptable to me. The fact that it's a discussion predicated on Samsora getting RNGed at a wifi...

    So they added Small Battlefield, how interesting He's still blatantly overtuned in a lot of areas He's just not the ideal character to play at the highest level unless you're fully dedicated to him because his design doesn't encourage mastering the usual fundamentals. He's just weird; better...

    Re: :ulticeclimbers: It's not good to hold past incarnations against a current one in Smash, but i'm sympathetic to the people who feel profound hate for the character, because as Thinkaman put, they were "horrific" Re: :ultdoc: Nowhere near the worst character. He's got Mario tier frame data...

    Corrin is significantly better now, but I also legitimately think she's also better than her Smash 4 incarnation as well. Cosmos does too She can actually take advantage of the system changes inherent to Smash Ultimate, has better moves across the board and noticeably better shield pressure...

    Random thought: When your friends go Incineroar in friendlies, it's because they hate you

    Random thoughts: -Falco is high tier, minimum. The character's ability to convert to high damage combos is frankly disgusting, and he can actually KO now. -Min Min completely stomps King. K Rool. SH Bair (mega watt) is just way too effective against him, especially when he's on ledge. It's not...

    I think non-commital is the key word, yeah. Though I do want to stress that there are some angles of recovery that Pikachu/ROB just flat out can't get like Min Min can, but I do ultimately agree with the point you're trying to make Very strange character, lol

    Corrin is a sword character; she doesn't "need" to get in, but rather control space and look for opportunities to get punishes in. That was the whole point of moves like Pin, which is an extremely punishing mid-range tool, but the problem with Corrin was that after she built up the damage, she...

    I'm not a strong player by any means, but here's me playing friendlies w/ the new Corrin I think she's definitely, demonstrably better now. They fundamentally fixed her biggest issue (KOing) and her damage and pressure is much better now. She honestly feels reminiscent of her Smash 4 self, with...

    Min MIn seriously crumples to pressure, woof She's still got stupid moves, but her "only okay" OoS options, godawful movement and abysmal recovery really holds her back She's going to struggle against the likes of Mario, Joker, etc

    Hmm, I don't know She can't really be punished for throwing out smash attacks at midrange with her smash attacks and her (big ball) bair is like, absurdly effective at killing people. Her (big ball) attacks in general give her ridiculous pressure, damage and KO potential. She's a crazy tether...

    Yeah, it's pretty great We saw how well things turned out when they uncritically gave a bunch of characters in Smash 4 kill confirms, without really addressing their flaws. Overall, i'm significantly more impressed with their approach to balancing Smash Ultimate (though probably not too...
