  • I was talking about earlier about how having a loose hand or thumb helps. Sometimes I feel stiff and makes my movement feel inconsistent, but I'm trying that and I feel "lighter". I usually try forcing it, which doesn't help and it's strenuous. The stamina of your hand or wrist can play a role, though not many are aware about it.

    This plays a big role in the thing I'm practicing with RAR Phantom in the middle of dashes. Seems you can buffer it and get it, as long as you're fast and do it well.
    I can RAR Phantom now n__N

    Forward displacement really exposes you.

    I usually use it as bait, or to catch a roll in/roll wakeup/tech. If they get hit you can usually combo from it bc you're closer than usual

    I also use it to jump offstage to position Zelda for a low edgeguard and the Phantom as a mid edgeguard for coverage

    I actually never thought of the first one and using it like that...

    Full hop phantom? Or is there something new I don't know about yet 👀

    It's a staple, and you see guys like ven and KP use it all the time- and I understand why.

    I think I'm missing something here but what's there to learn about full hop phantom other than jumping and pressing downB? Do you mean the full hop variant of DP? I messed around with that when it became super easy for 1 patch
    I think it's funny how people say that Zelda is really bad fighting up close, but no one really seems to bother even properly learning how to do it. I think you can't be a true respectable Zelda player until you learn how to do that, because Neutral B is not the answer for everything. Disjoints and knowing how long to hold shield really beat that move, and smart players will realise it.

    The same people that say that kind of stuff, that she's only a panic Neutral B, are also the ones that say she doesn't work offline. A Zelda player that knows how to fight up close without relying on panic options has one less great weakness to worry about.

    Oz o: Oz o: was that you? I've never seen a Zelda use D-Tilt like that into a combo so smoothly with perfect execution. You're really good with Zelda. ;)

    I like Dtilt, but I want the range to be reverted to Smash 4's version. It feels so...stubby now lol

    It would also be nice if it had more base KB so it would be more useful at very low % (like...0-20) but it's kinda always had that problem so I'm not expecting much there
    I am still the best.

    Shhh the crazy Zeldas might hear you and take you down...

    (Referencing this funny copy pasta that surfaced on Zelda main Twitter recently)

    yeh I saw
    very surprisingly considering how much I pay attention to twitter drama (I don't)
    I'm in FL and I'm staying up until the 25th. There's some weeklies down here, in SFL. If you're interested, look up Flynn's Arcade and Rex Baron. The latter is mostly twice as stacked, generally better skill level and venue (even heard PurpleGuy stopped by sometimes). Regardless, Flynn's is still good when there's barely any other weeklies nowadays.

    Just letting you know.

    Never played so bad, honestly. I was literally doing better even when I didn't know **** about Zelda.

    Oh :/

    Sorry to hear. Only thing I can suggest is a short break if it really has ya down. That's what I do at least

    i never did that
    you know like I never gave a **** about being the best in the world or even winning tournaments here
    But I really want to be the guy that upsets guys like MKLeo, Tweek and others. I'm fine with PGR Top 50.

    I just want to show everyone I'm the best ****ing Zelda and that she actually has a meta that works outside of wifi and phantom and Neutral B

    I'm not sure really

    I haven't looked at the Zelda boards in a while tho. Other than that time I made the thread about Nair hit advantage
    I'll get back to you on that topic.

    You're talking about the Nair thing right? or something else
    Oz o:

    That's right.

    Oh sweet. I've been a bit more confident in my usage of it when the opponent is at high damage after learning about how the air hitboxes don't connect at those %s. I managed to get a clip of a simple jump into the air>bait a laggy move while DJing away>nair early and fast fall>get the nair+kick combo.

    Not too flashy (especially compared to your stuff lmao) but effective. Zelda channeling her innner Captain Falcon lol

    Well, I mean, KP can already do both, and I'd say he's the good one with Teleports on top of it. I still mess them up, but it's not like I practice them every day... or at all, other than in actual play.

    People idolize ven as a role model but I'm honestly more impressed by KP's technicals and mixups and Mystearica (from the little I've seen her play).
