    Aegis are ridiculous but they've got an extremely high ceiling and they're punishing to play Mkleo and Sparg0 are demonstrably more comfortable using other characters

    I still don't think Corrin is that great, but Mkleo is simply built different It's because Marth is straight-up subpar in Ultimate A lacking throw game made worse, they took out his jab setups, perfect pivoting is gone, and the faster-paced nature of Ultimate compared to Smash 4 makes it way...

    Good to see him not fall into the cult of Pikachu and properly give Byleth his dues Olimar needs to be way higher and I think there are a couple of characters in "Yeahhh" that can be see tournament play, but for the most part it's accurate

    Sora's definitely got a ton of promise, I just think it's incredibly difficult to build yourself using a brand new character in this incredibly demanding metagame right now. You sacrifice so much by picking up Sora and grinding out those matchups (comparatively, Mkleo had a much easier time...

    Pyra is absolutely not the worst character by herself and that's the crux is problem, haha. She has her flaws mitigated by Mythra and vice versa, but the reason Aegis is a problem is due to how effective Pyra is during advantage. Mythra wouldn't be nearly as good if she was tethered to Ganondorf

    Get ready for a massive vitriol towards Steve/Steve players I think the Smash community being histrionic as usual and Steve being poorly designed are not mutually exclusive btw

    I don't see Hero ending up like another Byleth because Byleth skyrocketed due to a ridiculously potent Up B buff + other minor changes that added up making his kit a lot more effective. Also his normals are generally just way better than Hero's, and consequently has a way better OoS game as...

    Yep It absolutely matters that Pyra's neutral skip option was worsened and Mythra's ability to KO with Smash was noticeably weakened Surprisingly good balance changes imo

    That set was something else, jesus. I feel exhausted after watching it haha MuteAce definitely has a future as a top Peach main though

    Mhm, I think you hit the nail on the head. This is why the insane hype for the character, the fearmongering, has always been absurd to me. Characters that Pikachu "stomps" can absolutely win due to the nature of Ultimate. It's exceedingly rare for a character to utterly box another out, and...

    It's interesting to me how Pikachu seemingly keeps losing winning matchups at high-level play Maybe people will finally realize the character's utter lack of consistent onstage KO ability, low range, and the fact that it constantly eats trades makes Pikachu a lot less effective in practice

    The mental stack concept is a really good read and legitimately lifechanging for me

    Yeah the input lag is annoying, not "I died because my shield didn't come up in time" If that's happening that sounds like a player anticipation issue, or a bad habit (ie: jumping of shield) I don't think the game is better off with it but the hyperboles surrounding it have always irked me.
