    So um Is Marth actually that much better? I don't know. I have been playing with him and the tippers sadly feel super weird. There are times when I'm sure I hit the tip of the blade and didn't get it, and times when I'm sure I *didn't* and the opponent dies at 60. I played some Lucina but...

    Thanks for your thoughtful reply. I think a big difference to me is in how she's rewarded. In Brawl, the reward was damage. Approaching ZSS wrong /hurt./ In Ultimate, it's like, oh she reset to neutral and wasted my time. Maybe you ate a baby paralyzer which MAYBE (depending on positioning)...

    I don't expect everyone to play vastly different and even said above that I think the strategy worked, generally. The game is more balanced now, and is definitely more balanceable. But you do lose a bit of the flavor of each character. It also sucks a bit that sword characters all seem to...

    So what if Ike and Marth aren't exactly the same? They're still sword dudes that want to space aerials until they get a hit and then follow up with their advantage state. Like, Ike in Brawl wasn't that. He was a ground-based character with an excellent close quarters game like Ultimate Falco...

    I was thinking Marth, Roy, Lucina, Ike, and Chrom, though your opinion on how similar Ike is to the others might differ from mine (he's slower and hits harder, I don't think he's super different tbh) This completely. Toon Link was definitely a replacement for Young Link, and while they aren't...

    This isn't exactly a fresh take. Core-A Gaming made a video on this very subject called "The Consequences of Reducing the Skill Gap" which I think is an awesome watch if you're interested in this topic. Beyond that, I also think nothing can really make beginners compete with experienced...

    Ness' disadvantage state isn't really that much worse than anyone else's, right? I mean he's got good air speed, down-b for stalling and b-reversals, and a really good airdodge. I realize there are some characters with absurdly good disadvantage (ZSS comes to mind) but most characters just...

    At least one of her hitboxes is big I guess

    I've been playing and really enjoying Banjo. He really embodies the spirit of Brawl ZSS where you just run around being annoying and throwing **** at the opponent until they run into it and then do 50% or kill them for over-committing. I think Banjo is probably also going to be controversial...

    I'm perfectly happy if DK remains bad. The way he's designed in this game is pretty silly, I'm not sure I want to live in a world where we have that character + less situational confirms and a good neutral.

    What's the deal with smash tournament names? Port Priority 5? Really.

    Yoshi is low key busted so I'm not surprised

    I think what makes Ken's noticable is that they have done a fair bit of toning hitboxes down in Ultimate and 4 across a lot of the cast. ZSS' hitboxes compared to Brawl are so much smaller, lol.

    Hitboxes are bigger than animations would indicate across the entire fighting genre.
