    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    When I use the term honest, I generally mean that they have to get kills using fundamentals rather than some sort of gimmick. For example, if you have to get most of your kills from just sneaking in a smash attack or back air (rather than using a very reliable setup into a kill move), you're...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    To be completely honest, ever since the first time I played Banjo, I've always had the impression that the character is bad. I never posted about it because I agree that the character seems good on paper so I was like "well it's probably just me not understanding the character enough", but...

    My hot take on Greninja. Greninja is hard. Like, really hard. It's not for no reason that for a long time, Japan was the only region that could really utilize the character. I do think, when played to full potential, Greninja is probably top 15 or maybe even top 10, but I don't think he's as...

    I'm seeing a fair amount of Corrin talk in the last couple pages. I've actually always kind of liked the character in Ult, but I agree that she is super bad, probably bottom 5. What I'm curious to know is what people think makes her so bad. I've always felt that her neutral is actually fine...

    I feel like the only thing Byleth needs to be good is that neutral B needs to be better. If she could force approaches effectively, her gameplan would probably work fine. For example, imagine Byleth had Charge Shot or Thoron. Suddenly you have to go in and now those big hitboxes are scary...

    Finally got around to playing a bunch of Byleth tonight so it's time for some super late impressions! In general, I sort of like the design of the character, as some people mentioned with Banjo, it's kind of nice to have a DLC character that just feels like they fit in with the game, rather...

    Event Evo 2019

    Obviously a bit late, but that game 4 in the first set was legendary, I feel like people will be talking about that for a while. Leo winning might not be too unexpected, but no one can say that grand finals set wasn't crazy.

    I've only skimmed it so far, but so far I'm liking what I see, Isabelle, Corrin, and Plant all getting some love.

    It's a matter of degree. Those characters have 1 move that involves RNG, whereas Hero has at least 3 (crits on smashes, moves chosen by down B, the effect of Thwack). At a certain point random chance starts to play too much of a role. Maybe he'll turn out to be fine but I'm definitely a bit...

    To be honest, I'm not really liking Hero's design, he basically just seems to be RNG the character. I especially hate that his attacks can randomly critical and kill you at much lower percentages than they're supposed to, like why the heck is that even a thing? Did we learn nothing from...

    I complain about this for Ult as a whole! That being said, for Samus's gameplan of kind of "weave in and out and punish whiffed buttons" I feel like having a worse Dash Attack doesn't matter that much because in most situations where I would have Dash Attacked before I now just grab and you get...

    Personally, I feel like the difference between upper mid and high tier lies in matchup spread, and I'm not really confident enough in some of the more obscure matchups to feel comfortable saying that she is definitively high tier. I will say though that I feel like she has a lot of even...

    One thing that changed is that you can now do UpB OOS with tap jump off! I mean yes, technically you could do it before with jump cancels but in terms of consistency in high pressure situations this is a pretty significant QoL upgrade, I feel it's a stealth buff to all characters with good UpB...

    Fair is mainly useful as a combo tool, Dthrow Fair works on most of the cast for quite a while. I feel like in any situation where you want a "conventional" Fair, you use Nair. I feel like non-homing missile has a little bit of use, but yeah, generally missiles aren't great. One thing you...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    I find I'm generally much more in agreement with M2K, though I don't think Kirby is the worst, IMO Isabelle is the worst character. With Kirby, although you can play around him fairly easily, there are times where I'm scared against Kirby (if he's up close or lands certain moves), whereas I'm...
