    Why don't more Zelda's use her Aerial Interrupts?

    I, along with Chandy, would like to see a video performance. I've messed around with it before but never found such consistency. It could very well be that I don't get to practice often enough, seeing as I don't have my own setup, but seeing it done consistently may show me what I'm doing wrong...

    Yeah, I think Ness may actually be better than Zelda. GnW too. I think she has an edge over Kirby and Roy, and probably Bowser. She still loses to most low tiers tbh.

    Zeldas at EVO

    Update: Max Berger is going. We both have a good shot of getting out of pools. I just have Squid from SoCal to worry about, and he has Gravy and Zoler. I think he can beat Gravy though.

    I don't have the financial stability to plan that far ahead. Perhaps.

    Zeldas at EVO

    Where we at? I'll be there. Cosmo said he most likely isn't attending. I don't know about anyone else.

    I've had at least one Puff training partner for the entirety of my albeit short Melee career, and I've always had a pretty low opinion of pretty much everything she has because of it. I think people are just less willing to play correctly against her because it's not as easy to be that patient...

    My tentative tier list: gud @ game Fox Marth Falco Sheik Falcon Peach ICs Puff can do dumb things Samus Luigi Pikachu Doc Ganon Yoshi can do more than stand there and lose Mario YL DK Link G&W stand there and lose Mewtwo Pichu Zelda Ness Roy Bowser...

    I mean, as the opposing character's movement and pressure get slower/worse, Zelda becomes relatively more of a better character, but there are still caveats, like how turnips basically invalidate Zelda as a character when the Peach MU may be somewhat doable without them.

    I think it's still useful for when you have a read on a Puff's aerial movement backwards. It needs to be a confident read tho.

    There have been a handful of tourneys that Red Bull sponsors (Paragon and Olympus are two that I attended), and they gave out complimentary 4 packs of Red Bull when you entered and usually had giant Red Bull cans that were actually ice chests full of Red Bull. @skid_marq I'm essentially a...

    I just eat before the tournament and drink lots of water. If it's a big tournament, I'll probably eat again at some point before being done. In such scenarios, I try to give myself at least 30 minutes after eating before I have to play a match. Also if there's free redbull, I just drink that all...

    Zelda vs. Fox

    I will sometimes use bthrow as a DI mixup but it's usually reactable for most characters, so the dthrow is just safer in theory imo.

    Zelda Video Thread - For those who love Zelda

    http://www.twitch.tv/upke/b/649809694 Did some analysis on stream. It wasn't too in depth, just covered a few important things I noticed like stop approaching so much, don't press so many buttons, mix things up more, and some other MU tips and stuff.

    Zelda vs. Fox

    I'll just throw in a few things that I didn't see mentioned (sorry if I missed it). 1. I actually rarely bthrow at the ledge. If they are at low percent with no platform nearby, upthrow CG. Low percent with a platform is a choice, you can bthrow if you're more confident in the low percent...
