  • Do you have any thoughts on the Greninja MU?

    Not a ton; I've played very few. Greninja pokes us well but Wario can punish strongly in certain scenarios, like offstage. Probably something like 45-55 in Greninja's favor, but I'm not super well-versed.
    Nice work at CEO, Flex. Always nice to see my fav smasher killing it at major tourneys. I loved your taunts most of all :) Also. you going to EVO?
    Yooo! Ive heard you use CPUs to practice. Any truth to this? If so how do you go about it?

    Also was awesome watching your Smash64 DK, i was there for the R1G final tourny and helped them run the bracket for it. Got 4th myself
    Ayy.

    DK was godlike. And a joy to watch.

    Yeah, until recently I didn't have anyone to practice with so I had to make the most of what options I had. A lot of Wario's good stuff varies against different character types, so messing around in Training for data to perfect helps. A Level 9 CPU can help you work on defense, since they powershield most attacks that come their way. I figure if I can make my moves safe against them, I can be safe against any human.
    Hey Flex I was wondering if you were planning on attending Apex, CEO, and/or EVO in the near future. Your'e my favorite smasher so I'm curious. Also, you still maining Wario? Thanks
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    I'll be at CEO. Not sure about the others. Yes, still maining Wario. Glad you're interested!
    Hey your videos are good, you should make a playlist of all the "game/tech knowledge" type videos so they're easier to navigate :D
    *looks for that training mode one about bumpers and megaman*
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    That's a good idea. I'm at work right now, but I'll make such a thing over the weekend.

    Cool! Looking through made me realize how many videos you have. And I'm sure at least a couple are no longer relevant due to patching (like the Wario grounded/air state one)
    hey reflex, what do you think of the wario matchups with the dlc? Most of my friends at locals think wario loses very hard to all 3, what do you think of them?
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    It's probably a moderate disadvantage against all three. Bayonetta matchup may be slightly better than that (by virtue of Neutral-B and camping), but none of them are fun.
    I know that you're usually pretty busy, but is there any chance of you attending Shine 2016 in August? It's a newly announced NE major in Massachusetts taking place on the 26th-28th I believe.
    TheReflexWonder

    Dunno; I've been majorly caught up in a move to Atlanta lately and haven't been able to play much. I'll know better closer to the date.
    Watching your Wario always feels magical, you're a huge inspiration for me both as a smasher and as a Wario main. Thank you for being awesome and congrats on 1st at final round doubles!
    Just wanted to come across and say you're a really inspiring player to me, and the best Wario I've ever seen. Keep doing what you do, I love the findings on your channel along with how creative your play is!
    Any plans to go to a tournament in the near future?
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    Likely going to a Birmingham event next weekend. Should be picking up in the weeks after that.

    Love watching your play, if they got a stream I'll be sure to watch it.
    Hey Reflex get some people to vote for you on the Reddit 30 best players list. You belong on that list! Wario pride! 2 days left means 2 spots left. 30-35ish votes should get you a spot. You are one of 6 votable smashers up for the 29 & 30 spots
    Have you had a chance to play against Marth since the 1.1.4 patch?
    I have a LOT of trouble at my local against this character, probably the hardest matchup I've had to deal with.
    I can't get in at all and I'm at my wits end on how to deal with this character. Got any tricks or tips?
    Deeder
    Deeder
    It's pretty much the range that's giving me a hard time, I don't know the tools I have as Wario to get in on Marth.
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    Well, Wario doesn't really thrive on getting in. Marth has to come to you or give you a free Waft. It should be a lot of avoiding him with the occasional retreating B-Air or D-Tilt to discourage and punish. Neutral-B is not especially punishable, either. You have to be very patient and use moves with little endlag a lot.
    Deeder
    Deeder
    Thank you for your advice, love your Wario.
    you're probably right, I'm not patient enough.
    I'm going to a local, I'll post vods on the Wario forum if I can.

    Appreciate the help
    Is dair into fully charged waft a true combo? I see you use it a lot in tournament.
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    Characters can jump out half the time, but if you have Rage and get a frame sync (where one of your hits is at the same time as you hit the ground), you have enough frame advantage for it to be a true combo.

    For all intents and purposes, if you have a decent amount of Rage, it is a true combo literally 50% of the time.
    Reflex I'm having a lot of trouble keeping motivation to main Wario, can you help? :[
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    I can try. What's the trouble? What characters tempt you to play them instead?

    Sorry for the late response, week has been super hectic, anyways. I've been having a lot of trouble improving with Wario in terms of follow-ups/landing wafts/approaching. It's made me really flustered and it's made me prefer playing characters like Villager or FE characters in a lot of match ups >w<
    Hey Reflex, I was wondering what you think about the cloud matchup as Wario. There had been points where I completely body Cloud; and now it just seems that half my kit is gone because I just get nuetral-aired off my bike when I approach.
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    I haven't had much experience with it, but it's likely even-ish. We can't do anything to discourage limit but we're rather good at avoiding Limit moves, so camping still benefits us more.
    I heard you came into Memphis and won Kumite, congrats! I'm from Memphis my self, I hoped you enjoyed the trip! I was personally too busy to go, so knowing you where there makes me wish I could have come even more! Hopefully Our paths should cross another time! Also, I hope that Mewtwo of yours is progressing well, It'd be nice to see Mewtwo 2.0 have a high level rep.

    Man, this was a long post. Oops!

    Also, how do you feel about the pools situation at KiT?
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    Considering the number of players signed up almost doubled the day before the event, it was either add more pools or add people to existing pools and let more people advance. What they did makes sense from my perspective.
    Chainz.

    Ah, I see. I heard a rumor that they changed the rules after Jester drowned in pools. good to hear your side of it.
    yo Reflex, do you know how the angling of F-tilts with c-stick to attack work?
    I can't get it to work consistently, it would really be great for Wario if I could do that turn around tilt shenanigan(I forgot what it was called) and angle F-tilt up.
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    You can't angle tilts with Tilt Stick, as far as I know.

    Hyper
    You can but it's not consistent, you have to angle the analog in the direction you would for an angled F-tilt then use the c-stick
    Hey Reflex! A couple of questions :)
    1. What do you think of Peach in Smash 4?
    2. Do you still use Jigglypuff?
    Thanks :)
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    I think Peach has a lot of potential. She has many of the properties seen in the good characters like the ability to stay safe in neutral and high and guaranteed damage on punishes. She likely requires a lot of work to see significant results, though.

    I use Jigglypuff in friendlies and Doubles, but not really in any tournament Singles play.

    Hello Reflex!

    I enjoy watching your Wario very much!
    First of, i'd like to ask you if you will be at BEAST and Genesis.
    Secondly, i'd like to ask you what's your button layout while playing with Wario because i have watched that you can do the aerials pretty fast after a short hop. Back air for example,you do it without any lag when you land! I use the X button for jumps but i can't do it so fast
    TheReflexWonder
    TheReflexWonder
    I don't know what BEAST is, and I don't have the money to go to Genesis 3; Kumite in Tennessee 2016 is on the same weekend as G3, and I'll be going to that.

    My aerials don't involve any special control change, but I jump with Y on a Gamecube controller. I slide my thumb down from Y to A most of the time.

    BEAST is a European smash tournament :P . Knowing that you don't have the money for G3 it's a bit difficult to go to BEAST then :P.
    I will watch you and your Wario at Kumite!

    Thanks for your answer! :)

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this. This is imperative if people expect to make the most out of something like N-Air loops.

    Yeah I don't have it down to a hard science but you could check how much lag Nair puts individual chars into and see if it lines up with the data at all. Would be a good video for sure!
    Investing in Mewtwo might not actually be a bad idea. It's crazy how much better the character is now, despite certain flaws still being there. 13f of lag on his Nair is just nuts though, that's crazy low for what this move does. Good luck with the Mewtwo lab and stuff, I'll be keeping up for sure! The potential is most certainly there now.... PS Nair into U-Throw is super real if you drag them into the ground <3
    TTTTTsd

    Also just wanna add on that the reason Nair is also amazing for starting combos/crossing up is that it's VERY barely affected by staling. It does a lot of low dmg hits so the move staling doesn't kill it as bad from my experience. You can use it in the neutral and for crossups with impunity, basically. So good <3.
    Holy Wario, Batman! You did awesome at MLG. It's a privilege to have even played you. I hope I get the chance to do so again at some of these AL tournaments! Congratulations!
    "Smash Wii-U Main: Greninja" You're a funny one!

    Congrats man! You did excellent at MLG. You took out an Ike main (:(), but your matches were excellent!
