  • Raichu should have been a semi clone of Pikachu
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    He should have just been a full character! Interesting tail mechanics combined with electric attacks would have been cool. Too bad they would have made him slower than Pikachu...

    Ironically, in the games light ball pikachu is a slower but stronger raichu
    FYI, ESAM just beat Ally 3-2 in WF of a local prior to Big House (Pika vs. Mario).

    This and the Luigi nerfs forecast a bright future for the yellow rat, methinks. I think there's hope in both MUs.

    That's cool! Good luck

    Thanks! Does that character icon mean you're back with Pikachu? Admit it, you can't give him up...
    So you caved in and picked up Rosalina instead of Greninja now? =P
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Greninja is fun, but after using him EXTENSIVELY, I came to the conclusion that his general weaknesses make winning the Luigi/Mario/Ness matchups more difficult than it ought to be.. :P
    FullMoon
    FullMoon
    Yeah, I'm starting to think Greninja really isn't a character that's secondary material, if you want to cover bad MUs you should pick up a character that can do it easier. Even when he wins a MU you still need to put in some effort because he demands a lot of it I think.
    I noticed you changed your character icons to Rosa/Pika.

    It occurred to me just the other night that Rosa covers most of Pika's bad MUs, and certainly the most important ones (Mario, Luigi, Ness). You might still suffer against MK & Olimar and obviously Sheik is Sheik, but otherwise I think it's a really potent duo.

    Ryu is only worth playing if you can pull off all the true shoryuken combos consistently. Otherwise he's pretty trash tier. His airdodge is garbage, recovery is exploitable, aerial control is awful...
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Not sure if people are fully aware that he got buffed massively by patch 1.10.
    Djent
    Djent
    The universal change to high hitlag modifiers? He probably benefitted the most from that. TBH I think he's a shoe-in for top 10 at this rate (Sept. 30 please don't screw this up).
    I feel awkward around you guys since I feel out of place, so I'll just post on your profile. Congrats dude :D

    Thanks bro! Hasn't worked out completely yet, working out a few kinks :)

    WELL. THERE GOES THAT. Noooo why Fox :(

    Game & Watch in summary needs a more fluid air-to-ground game and better kill options. That's really it (though I made a series of profile posts here of buffs I'd like to see).

    Jigglypuff and Dedede are also pretty mediocre but they're fun.

    the only thing Shulk needs is a better jab

    that's it. Literally
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    ^^^ basically that tbh

    anyway, i tried out fox at friendlies. he still feels great tbh. i'm probably gonna keep him. my mario is fine but i feel disgusted using the character. i even feel better using sheik. lol
    I don't know why Sakurai doesn't bother with Fox's jab lock despite all the complaints, but since I use Fox (as a secondary), idgaf. Lmao
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    If he removes the jab locks I'm giving up Fox, it's pretty much the only reason he beats Shulk/Ike/etc.
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    I'd also give up Fox if jab lock was removed. Fox's jab lock is pretty much why I play the character anyway. Feels so good to use
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    I need to improve my recovering with Fox. I'm too predictable with firefox and fox illusion :|
    Pretty surprised to see a Game & Watch in top 16 at Evo tbh. I attribute it partially to matchup inexperience since he's simply not as overwhelming if you know what he can do. But good stuff to Regi!

    There are a few others I'll use rarely and have thought about learning (Pikachu and Rosalina being the most notable ones). I honestly don't know what my "preferred character" would be given how many I use. Spirst once noted that I like characters with odd projectiles which isn't incorrect. I also have noticed that I like a strong edgeguarding game (probably my biggest beef with Like, his aerials are so laggy).
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    General skill transfers to every character, but it's hard to be a good player without some specialization, so that you can get into a microspacing groove
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I agree with that. I haven't been able to play for over a month, but once I can play again I plan to focus a bit more on the characters that I really want to improve with (Game & Watch and Villager are first on that list).
    I won. I repped Buster art. Nothing else

    And Zard, just once. Roy is not my thing at all >_____>

    I'm not scared of most Sheiks, but the best ones are terrifying
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    I fear the day when most Sheik mains finally reach the level of what we call, "Theory Sheik." .-.

    I know I may sound like a whiner and the cycle of nerfing will continue from one character to another, but Sheik deserves a nerf. I don't think she's anywhere near as terrifying as pre-patches Diddy but... she's too good
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    I would nerf ZSS, Sheik, Luigi, Falcon, Pikachu, Ness, Rosalina, and Fox all very slightly. Then the game would be quite balanced.
    I think I might join you in the Lord and Savior Luma Club
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Fox is great. Worried that his jab cancels will get patched out, though, so still looking for a backup. Mario/Luigi are very hard MUs for Pikachu in my experience, you basically need a 2ndary to compete.

    Anyway, we should play sometime, but Water Buffalo terrifies me. The less I play online the more I learn to hate lag.
    Antonykun
    Antonykun
    I highly doubt Fox's jab canels will get patched they seem to be intentional
    Imma admit i stopped playing Pikachu because i was spending a million years trying to expand the Swordfighter meta
    ever since my friend @project crysis became close if not my equal i really grown to hate online because offline is so much fun :/

    I use more Fox than Pikachu now, but if patches remove his jab cancel, I'll have to drop him (he won't win in the MUs I need him to). Hmm.
    Oh by the way, I remembered why they mightn't have given Ness teleport - he has it as his entry pose into the battlefield and they may not have wanted to re-use it?

    Also whilst I forgot to post here, I was also waiting for the day you came back. :D
    Since Game & Watch isn't quite competitively viable you should lab Villager next IMO
    Kofu
    Kofu
    I'll be honest, I have a semi-subconscious aversion to using top tiers in basically anything competitive unless I really like the character (goes for Pokémon too). But at the same time I tend to enjoy playing the weaker characters more (hence my signature which I often forget about since I have sigs turned off).
    Kofu
    Kofu
    It's probably detrimental to me as a player, at least in Smash, since I'm not as good as I like to think I am (though playing inconsistently is a problem too). But I do like to learn and implement what I can if I think it will improve my game. My G&W has been complimented several times which is encouraging.

    Anyway, this has been a nice convo. I'll stop bothering you now. :P
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    you're not bothering me Kofu haha. Feel free to chat any time
    Every time I see a post of yours, you have a different avatar. You're almost as bad as @Berserker.
    Waiting for the day you end up in Seattle again. Somewhat oddly, the Smash 4 scene has gotten much bigger in the past few months. Quality is still whatever, we only have one good Sheik which is stupid because she's broke, but the last tourney hit 41 entrants. You should hit me up next time you're there.
    Berserker.

    and f-tilt

    and p.much his whole moveset

    I'm just glad his throws kind of suck and he's bad at edgeguarding. Like, what can he do offstage to scare me? Weak NAir? Falling FAir with that fall speed? pls
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Edgeguarding isn't Fox's weakness, lol. Once you're on the ledge vs. Fox, you are going to have a terrible time getting up. He can stand right next to the ledge and jab your getup. If you roll behind him he can dash attack on reaction (hello frame 4).

    Fox's weakness is that his dashgrab is frame 10, so you can shield a lot of his stuff.
    Jab 1 is greeeeeat. I'm using Lucina as a secondary. I suck at tippers with Marth
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Plus his n-air means that you just don't get much reward off of hitting Luigi, so your best bet is to run away and camp. It's nothing like Ganondorf where you can feasibly end the game by actually winning an exchange in neutral.
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    luigi is definitely brain dead but idk how to nerf him carefully

    i mean, his throw combos/grab game is what makes the character.... and his frame data too. I guess. nerfing his grab speed may not be a bad idea
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    I got almost dead last using Marth in a tournament. Just got obliterated, and didn't switch to Pikachu because I let it get to my head that I could win. Blah. I learned a lot from my Marth experience, but I think I should move on.
    Oh hey, you're back

    I have this sudden appreciation for the buster+shield combination all of a sudden but anyway, long time no see man. Been watching Attack on Titan and I've taken a break from SB for 3 weeks (Went to Europe ~4 weeks ago)
    Berserker.
    Berserker.
    But anyway, I have a tournament today but I don't feel like going. It's one of those days where I lack motivation to actually go out and play
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    You left out Zero Suit Samus, Ness, Sheik, and probably a few others, btw.
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    You don't have to go to every tourney btw. Just go to the ones where you're fired up to win.
    tfw you are going to say Welcome Back on for 2 other guys to beat you to it :/
    None the less I'm really glad you are back

    quite honestly treal doing that good with swordfighter is more a testament of how good trela is rather than how good the Mii is
    for now APEX Sword is a fatty minus the ridiculous dpg and kill power

    did i really just call him treal?! smh
    Based SolidSense is back
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    It's been a slow realization that he just doesn't win that many matchups, most of them are even, and he struggles to get KOs

    I think he loses badly to Mario, Luigi, Ness, and Olimar at least, and to Sheik maybe

    ESAM had a close set with Ally and Abadango both, though
    Djent
    Djent
    Interesting. Has your opinion on his Falcon, ZSS, Rosa, etc. MUs changed then? Or are the advantages just not enough to make up for his deficient spread overall?

    Sadly, I haven't been able to watch either of those sets (or any of finals) yet.
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Z beat Fatality, which is nice.
    I think Pikachu is Rosa's worst MU, beats ZSS, and beats Falcon.

    Maybe slight win on Fox.

    End list, really. Those are his advantages, outside of bad characters like Samus.
    People getting hyped for Mewtwo, and we're both just sitting here knowing that he's going to our low tier tournament main. Pfffffft
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    I plan to wreck regionals with Mewtwo if I can.

    always can fall back to Pikachu/Sonic if it looks like I'm going to lose.
    Antonykun
    Antonykun
    If Mewtwo plays similarly to Villager or Pika while still feeling unique i might play a lot of him
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    He'll be tall and light, but I fully expect that he'll have some broken custom special that will let me abuse him
    Sheik main = Hyrule Warriors Sheik as an avatar = Generic Sheik main :) jk

    Oh, I'm only at volume 3. Enjoying the novel so far but I'm unusually slow (Been going out more often than usual). I also ranked top 6 in a tournament with Shulk-only and I managed to do that crazy f-air>f-air>air slash gamble off stage for the win. I got everyone hyped. Lmao
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Hyrule Warriors Sheik is the best Sheik.

    Also, Pikachu-Mario-Sheik main, technically.

    They're basically the same character. Sheik is a Pikachu that camps better but is taller, and Mario is a Pikachu that trades better but has a worse recovery. The minor differences are useful.

    Nice job, man.
    Hey man, I'm trying to convince a MK main that Meta Knight is actually really good.

    Can you link me to any really good MK combo videos? I know I have at least seen you post one haha.

    Since when could humans hug ghosts?
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Ah, yeah, the whole ghost thing was weird. How the ghost got the ring also was kind of weird when Banri dropped it into that creek.

    I think there's no actual ghost (it's just symbolic), but maybe it's a bit overdone in the ending.

    I might actually watch this again sometime. I haven't watched anime in a LONG time before this. Last one was Baccano (which was great).
    Hey SolidSense, remember me? I read your recent post on Palutena in the competitive impressions thread and you said you've been overrating her for a while. I'm curious, what do think of her now? I asked AeroLink the same question the other day and he said he thinks she's a "solid mid-tier character". Do you agree with that or...?
    Hey, nice to see you back in Comp. Impressions! My views on Doc have changed substantially (Doc Nado makes this char mid IMO), how've your tournaments and general Smash stuff been going? (My passion in Doc has been revitalized recently so I'm doing fine.)
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Tournaments going well. Haven't had a lot of free time recently. Pikachu is really, really OP. People have no idea. No. Idea.
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    Yeah I know how it feels to have a char being underrated. I can finally CONFIDENTLY say that about my main now. Even though he still needs secondaries to work (like most everyone not Pikachu, Diddy or Sheik.)
    You know Solidsense, i've had the feeling that there's quite a bit more to you than meets the eye for some time now.

    You're an immensely intelligent poster, abnormally so for an account that clocks in at a little over a month... except you've been like that the whole time. Is this really your first account? :P

    I'm not trying to be critical by the by! I heavily respect you as a poster, it just surprised me haha ^_^
    Kofu
    Kofu
    Sorry about that if it seemed juvenile; it was just a stupid joke. I agree with the others: your posts are intelligent and interesting (and you likely know more about the actual tournament scene than I do).
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Oh, sorry, I actually found your comment quite humorous, but there's no "like" button for comments on comments on profile pages. Haha.

    Luco
    I know, so many times on profile pages i'm just tempted to go: *Luco likes this* hahaha.

    I liked it too Kofu :D
    Also as a Doc main I'd like some practice against Pikachu and I have 0 local scene period so I might hit you up for NNID and pray the netcode is based cause I got nothing. Pooklechu is one of Doc's worst MUs IMO so I'd like to see what I can do to fight it. Probably 65:35 against him.
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    Customs on/off is fine either way, I use Doc (low tier hero), Ganondorf, Luigi, mainly. Either way, get back to me when possible and we'll run the set.
    SolidSense
    SolidSense
    Interesting character set. You are indeed a hero, sir. I don't have a preference for customs on or off, but I'll use Pikachu/Yoshi if they're off and Palutena/Ike if they're on, just for reference. Saturday is looking sort of promising, but it's too early to make a promise. I'll let you know.

    Looking forward to some pill shenanigans.
    TTTTTsd
    TTTTTsd
    Aight. Do note I've been messing around with a LOT of chars just to see who else I like. This includes Fox, Falco, and Capt. Falcon. Spacies are p. fun in this game.
    Eyyyy you seem pretty coo, all your posts are pretty well thought out! Character Competitive Impressions is getting a bit crazy though, lol. Glad you're keeping it down to Earth.
