    To expand on the :ultganondorf: thing, Side B in general is an absolute joy for me to use and land now in this game, because getting that scenario is so rewarding, and I think its rewarding enough to merit discussion. Consider the following: You get a Side B as Ganon succesfully. What happens...

    To be fair, I wouldn't wanna get it twisted - I am not making the argument that BotW Link is faring better than Young Link, or that Young Link has problems that bring him down to BotW Link proportions. I strictly think BotW Link is worse than Ylink, and would go as far as to say that BotW Link's...

    You’re right. But at the same time... It’s not just Snake who gets buttons to press as a zoner. :ultrobin: Gets a solid f4 jab and reasonable f6 utilt, :ultsamus::ultdarksamus: get their (forever unlinked) f3 jab and f6 dtilt, :ulttoonlink: gets like a -1 frame buff across the board in direct...

    I kinda starting to wonder about :ultyounglink:‘s long term placement. Yeah, he racks up damage very effectively. Yeah, bombs give him a decent boost to disadvantage and overall recovery that :ultlink: is really starting to miss. Yeah, he’s showing up and placing in events, and T especially...

    Well I haven't really done much with him myself since 4, so I wouldn't be an authoritative source, but I was watching Gluttony all day, and I was seeing ftilt, waft, and dtilt --> dash attack & other buttons clean up shop. It started to look to me like Gluttony felt comfortable treating Wario...

    A few posts have been taken to mention that :ultwario: is doing well, but do we wanna take a crack at discussing why? Personally, when I was looking at that footage, what stood out to me was that Wario seems to have a pleasant time with closing stocks. Putting Waft aside, being able to convert...

    You don’t need a true sword against everyone. If I’m fighting a stubby Luigi or other no-disjoint brawler the need for using the further half of the sword for spacing is moot. You gain a sweetspot and arguably better UpB and lose... what exactly compared to Chrom in those marchups? Chrom is...

    This is how I would’ve felt about this before I got my hands on Chroy, to be honest. It’s absolutely valid to make a distinction between Sheik and the swordies, but I’m pursuing the train of thought to point put how muddied that distinction has become, and to reflect the conversation back on...

    Doesn’t that world just spring into existence when Shiek isn’t the only one winning neutral over and over again? Swordies are doing it too, but then scoring kills without developing a frickin hernia from straining for it. What risks are Chroy and Marthcina and co. taking that Shiek isn’t?

    This is another case where I feel the complaints leveraged against Mac are exaggerated, and have to agree with this sentiment. The loss of some combo potential on Mac honestly hasn’t been too affecting... at all. Utilt still does stuff, and while % ranges have adjusted, there is still a KO...

    This is a pretty good clip of it, and now I know exactly what you mean. That being said, I was under the impression this was not random at all. My understanding is that this happens a roughly north of 80% on a lot of characters, and that the root cause is hitting with the very edge of the first...

    Can you expand on this? I can't picture in my head what you mean. So far, ftilt has been pretty reliable button when I hit it. I throw it out, range is good, not particularly slow, and often the first hit eats small projectiles. I haven't had any weird kinds of getting stuffed when not expecting...

    I've noticed that :ultlittlemac:kinda isn't being discussed that much beyond how :ultincineroar: or :ultchrom: infringe on his niche, and I feel like that's sleeping on something major. Does any other character in the game benefit quite as much as Little Mac does from being able to do any...

    This severely ignores the fact that, despite Mac having non-linear recovery options, the range at which his margin of error becomes nil is far too large for that to have as large of an impact as your stating. Yes, you have nair, wall jumps, more proactive UpBs, and a lot of other tools that...

    Who has the best kill options?

    Yeah Ness' bthrow does it. Although at the same time Pikachu probably shouldn't be a struggle to kill necessarily you can just offstage chase early I mean your aerial mobility with quick attack backing it up is more than enough to overwhelm an off-stage opponent.
