    Haven't posted here in a while, but since MVD's Snake MU Chart showed up on my Twitter timeline, figured I might as well share it: This MU Chart looks drastically different from his previous one. Seems a lot more characters have the tools to keep up with Snake than previously thought which I...

    Seeing this hilarious, yet accurate tweet about Greninja's shield size increase in Patch 7.0 got me thinking. According to Meshima, Greninja actually received the largest shield adjustment of all 30 or so characters who got changed: While it's a shame Greninja doesn't have an OOS option to...

    I'm confused by your question. Are you asking what Shadow Parries are in general? If so, refer to this tweet thread: To get the initial Shadow Parry you have to press Shield and Side-B at the same exact time. If the move is a multihit then you mash Side-B after the first shadow parry (which...

    I wasn't able to watch it myself either (not even sure they were necessarily on stream to begin with), but judging from what I've noticed from JP Greninja in the past, I can imagine overshielding and a lack of offstage edgeguarding were their downfall. I definitely agree with your assessment...

    Well yes, but also no. I'm curious to analyze this set so if you can recall, who was this Mega Man player that MVD 3-stocked? While I don't like using individual sets to determine MUs, as of now, MVD has lost to every single Top Mega Man player (some even more than once!): Yeti x3, Scatt...

    To no surprise of anyone who was paying close attention, Patch 6.1.0 just dropped. As expected, it was a hotfix to quickly take care of a game-breaking Terry interaction (buster wolf nana glitch): https://www-aaaba-lp1-hac.cdn.nintendo.net/en-US/14aac34c/index.html Given how close this update...

    If we are all thinking of the same "infinite", this information might be important to know:

    Speaking of Out of Shield options, while this doesn't completely fix the issue at hand for Greninja in all situations, I've been seeing Somé from Japan make use of "Footstool OOS" a lot lately. At this point, I'll take whatever I can get to avoid this weakness and avoid getting...

    I feel the same way after watching Brood's incredible run at Umebura SP 4. I definitely underrated Piranha Plant's corner pressure and ability to zone control should he get the necessary time to actually set up properly. Ptooie is obnoxious! Watching Grand Finals however seemed to reinforce my...

    I tried to prevent this exact response with my wording but it seems I failed, oh well. I was not trying to compare Zelda to Greninja in viability or playstyles, it was used to showcase how movement stats alone can often dictate Neutral interactions and Greninja is a more obvious case. Greninja...

    That is hilariously phenomenal timing with that Marss vs Elegant set at LTC 7. It showcased a lot of the concepts I talked about on the last page in visual form (feel free to scroll back and read if you're interested as it is at the bottom of Page 245 and I'm sure people missed it). The MU looks...

    I've been lurking in this thread for a long while since the last time I posted, so I figured I might as well address something that has been bothering me for the last few pages or so. Just going to briefly go over what I think about Zelda and whether or not her average at best mobility is an...

    With MVD seeming to run through multiple mid and high level Greninja players one after another, I've tried to make an effort to understand what is happening and why everything is going so wrong when it comes to this MU. There's a lot of surface level problems such as Greninja Mains trying to...

    Speaking of Zelda (Palutena too go figure), I just watched a recently close set on stream at GOML 2019 between Raykushi and Gen that I think showcased a lot of interesting uses of her tools (All throughout, but particularly in Game 3). While I'm too tired to analyze it on any deeper level, what...

    I actually made a whole tweet thread talking about Mega Man in the new patch. Considering the fact that Yeti and Morpheus both won their stacked locals immediately after in the new patch as if nothing changed, I'm inclined to agree with the nerf not being nearly as detrimental as most seem to...
