    Incineroar having a bad recovery is an opinion I see too often and it's a pet peeve of mine. You watch Magister play and how many times does he actually die off stage? Yes once he loses double jump it gets significantly harder to recover, but that's true for most of the cast, and unlike say...

    Forcing a tech chase is incredibly strong and versatile no matter what, it's basically free strong oki off a grab. I'd go as far as saying Snake's dthrow is the best throw in the game in general, especially on him. (Though I do think pretty much any character would want it)

    Think it's pretty telling that Wario has what seems to be the most notable amount of representation there.

    I don't know why this is such a common misconception when Chrom has a jab that confirms into fsmash and hits below the ledge. Chrom has a lot of consistent and easy ways to kill you. He also has that stupid ftilt any character would dream to have.

    Incineroar's buffs are absolutely not something to sneeze at. Jab being a reliable, non committal frame 5 kill move with revenge active now is a big boon for the character. Revenge having 4 frames shaved off its recovery is also very helpful against projectiles. He also has Falcon Dair now. The...

    I feel like this is significant For reference, the average charge time in Street Fighter is around 45 frames. KoF is faster and while I don't have the numbers I believe it's in the 30's. This is really fast charge time for a really good move.

    Yeah this is how it works in fighting games too. It's called charge buffering. You can charge when shielding too! It works as an OoS, but spotdodging makes that annoying.

    The Bandicoot Returns (and It's About Time!) Crash's Nitro-Fueled Smash Thread

    You don't just guess Goemon and Team Rocket grunt mii costumes, nevermind the other stuff he got right. Come on now.

    Assuming they're balancing primarily on elite smash (and they probably are, I'm 100% sure it's why Ivy got nerfed the way she did), I don't see Wario getting touched. Input lag doesn't do his stubby range and strict confirm windows any favors.

    I'll take Chrom's recovery killing anyone that messes up the edgeguarding over Roy's being really easy to intercept, and that godlike OoS.

    Figured I'd share this clip of a renowned Ken main playing Smash like he would Street Fighter. It's against a random online Ike player, but still, ground movement is important! He didn't even jump.

    Rant / Other Why is it so hard to read and punish in this game?

    You're pretty much getting it. This is how it is with pretty much every other traditional fighter, when you're blocking you lost your turn and it's theirs. By that point all you have to do is wait for an opportunity to escape/they do something punishable or, if you figured out their patterns...

    I will never understand calling Lucina and Wolf boring. Every time I watch top play of them I'm continuously impressed by the sheer control and efficiency players have of them. Winning with them always comes from fundamentals and I adore watching that and trying to dissect their thought process...

    The amount of times he air to air'd with uair and converted it to big damage made all the difference. Mario's uair is weirdly massive.

    Joker isn't even in that MU list, nevermind the other DLC chars. It's old.
