    Generally I think they're fine. Of course they lack that "x-factor" other characters have like Inkling Ink or Joker's Arsene, but I think they don't need it. New Pit bair is a really good spacing disjoint that also kills now. Maybe fthrow killing a bit earlier, maybe usmash being a bit stronger...

    Raito has been saying stuff along the lines of this for a good while, and I've always wondered whether or not he's correct. Regardless, he certainly makes Duck Hunt seem like a borderline top tier. But at the same time, a lot of it could be seen as Raito being amazing at Duck Hunt, and he makes...

    I think this too. :ultduckhunt: has: -Solid walling -Can that, much like :ultsnake: Grenades, is a frame 1 explosive that he can mash to break out of combos. Not only that, it allows a constant moving hitbox to travel above or with Duck Hunt as he is moving to create pressure, as well as the...

    USA Duck Hunts are finally starting to make a showing hm? That's nice; more representation outside of Raito is always welcome. I've been on and off with the character since Smash 4 but in Ultimate I really, really jive with the character and their playstyle. Moreso than with Bowser Jr., I might...

    Mechakoopa has it's own hurtbox, so it can tanks all sorts of things, even a max Aura fully charged Aura Sphere and stop it in it's tracks. One of the many applications of the moves that makes it really good!

    Yeah I was watching ESAM's comments on :ultbowserjr: and I had to stop when he said Mechakoopa was a "mediocre at best tool because you can shield it and pick it up" (Only 2 of his points in by the way). Mechakoopa isn't mediocre, and it's easily his best special move. At face value it seems...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Was waiting for something like this to show up; I wanted to ask a question. Do you guys think playing several characters will be worth it in the long run? I'm sure this is a question that's been asked before, but when this happens, among others like Zackray using 6 or 7 characters in a...

    Warning: :ultbowserjr: stuff ahead Just gonna go down the list here: -Dash attack sends more horizontally now. It originally sent at a 45ish degree angle. -Utilt endlag reduction allows for utilt x3 into uair stuff. Before it had to much endlag to do anything true after the second utilt...

    I am thoroughly pleased. Jr. buffs.... Kart is so fast, utilt connects into itself more, usmash is strong again, the kart's hits of up b connect reliably now, the hammer swing is just better overall. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. Time to go play. :evil:

    :ultisabelle: is essentially :4bowserjr: in that there are ideas, however they are executed so poorly that it leaves the character as an unfinished mess. :ultisabelle:'s smash attacks aren't very good and losing Bowling Ball in exchange for Fishing Rod isn't a good trade, as Fishing Rod will...

    If you want to nerf Inkling, forget about Roller. Her bair is infinitely more dumb. People tend to look over it because it's not crazy strong in the same vein of Snake's utilt, but it's utility is a bit overboard. It's a frame 7 respectable disjoint with 6 frames of landing lag that combos...

    I believe there's more to it than that. True, Snake's aerials leave a lot to be desired in terms of covering the space in the air in front of him, but there's also the fact that in order to get there, you have to first weave through his wall of nades and the C4. Very rarely will Snake not have...

    I genuinely don't understand how some people can think Jr. is worse than Mac tbh. You say this: But do you know about Side B > Up B hammer (we call it RamHam for simplicity's sake) still killing at about 85-ish on most midweights (it scales up and down with weight, obviously). His range is...

    I dunno y'all, :ultpiranha: is just crazy underwhelming to me right now. I played him for about 2 and half months, but I eventually fell out of him because he has a number of glaring issues. He's a character that doesn't want to approach, but his zoning game is... middling, to say the least...

    No, of course not. Everyone has different ways to play the game. For example, I'm a Bowser Jr. main (and proud of it too, baby). The character is constantly getting trashed on by people, but a question I get a lot is "why Jr. over any better characters?". Simple: the character is fun to me. It's...
