    Think I'm gonna start experimenting with bomb OoS
    I imagine it would be less risky than UB OoS in some situations

    And I'm wondering if I could manage to get 3 bombs to explode on a persons shield if they were on a platform above me, then maybe follow it up with a dair, seems like at the very least you're getting a bomb, and at most a dair cause after 3 hits from bombs the shield aint gonna protect em from a dair, and if the bomb hits you might be able to follow up with a nair, if you react quick enough.


    O I also found that if people keep spot dodging when you rush at them you could rush at them and drop a bomb or two

    I've played around with Bomb OoS. imo it's not good.

    Bomb comes out on frame 10, so that's frame 14 before you get any sort of hitbox.
    UpB has a greater range than bomb, so yeah, they have to be even more in the center of your shield.
    The 40 or so frames of lag (unless you bomb jump) sort of is a problem.


    I wish bombs came out frame 1 =(.

    If you can get it to work plz inform. It seems like a neat thing.

    For the sake of mindgames, yes bombs OoS can be helpful for variety, but for breaking pressure, not really. Kind of like Falcon Dive OoS, unorthodox, but nice if it works.

    I do think it can work decently if you wavedash backwards OoS a lot. Then when they approach you bomb OoS instead (before they get to you).

    You could also do it by using your shield to stop momentum and immediately bomb OoS to have the mini Samus jump thing for strategy purposes.

    It's just not very practical for breaking shield pressure because it doesn't protect Samus well enough to prevent you from getting hit when you do it.

    That's pretty much the situation I was thinking of because I play a falco who forces me to shield a lot, and I find myself wavedashing back when he approaches.

    I'm also thinking maybe low %'s, if you can pull it off fast enough to punish smash attacks? Then you wouldn't have to risk UB'ing and getting hit on the way down, if you can get the bomb to explode on the person it could throw em off, and you're most likely gonna get away without getting hit.

    I'll definitely mess around with it. Bombs are too good lol
    They must be really annoying for the opponents though haha

    It's definitely situational if anything
    I would juss really like some other options OoS than UB as far as offense goes

    You know what's a big problem?

    In every thread or forum, there is a buttload of information that is useful, but is forgotten over time because of more posts/threads. This whole time I have wondered why someone has not taken the initiative to create a compendium of specific things that people have found out. Basically a thread or something to end all threads in its amount of random information. By now, it seems silly though, since so many years have gone by with uncollected information...

    /going off-topic


    I just want to play safe
    You guys and your creative things

    That's why it pays off to be a packrat and dig through all of the old stuff to find extremely helpful things for yourself.

    Hail the search function.

    So um
    I think bombs are a good way to shield pressure opponents when they're on platforms
    You can jump up & lay like 3 on their shield
    and chances are the 3rd one is gonna hit without question
    and their shield is gonna be ****ed so if you dair them after and they still shielding you prolly gonna get da hit
    and if they try to spotdodge the bomb gonna hit em any way
    also make sure you're being efficient when you're tech chasing
    always try to tech chase w/ something that combo's ;|
    I find myself using nair/uair too much when I could be using dair and following up instead

    wat?
    I mean like, if they're on a platform above you, and you know they're gonna shield/spot dodge
    Jump up and lay bombs, if they spot dodge they get hit by the bomb
    if they shield
    the bomb explodes, and you can lay like 2 more (both exploding)

    Only if you become predictable with them.

    I find it annoying to try to get past bombs and end up with a foot in my face.

    you poke at their shield with an upair

    not upairing in front of them obviously because you might get punished

    if you do it right and you end the poking with the bottom of their shield (feet), if they're not tilting the shield down or have a good shield, it should hit them with the last hit of the upair

    guys, guys:

    would be better if it had samus, but it's still awesome:

    http://music.todaysbigthing.com/2009/08/12

    also, new kraid ocremix this morning:

    http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01890/

    it's kind of orchestral in nature, it's actually pretty sweet, reminds me of beckett007's stuff in terms of style but with a lot less 'batman epicness' styled drums and stuff. there's a part in the end that reminds me of jet force gemini a lot, where the strings start doing this arpeggio thing. it's actually a pretty cool remix.

    So...today I was 2 stocking the jiggs that was 2 stocking me few days ago
    You have be on your game SO HARD to fight jiggs, holy ****
    You take every spec of damage you can get
    They mispace something on your shield, they better eat a UB or a nair
    Whenever you've got nothin better to do, you be shootin missiles or chargin your shot
    And you don't waste that thing! hell no! You wait for them to attack like a ***** *** jiggs will and you blow her the **** up

    Also

    is...
    FH homing
    DJ power
    then another power before you land possible?
    I'm gettin it pretty close

    first kniht i hate the way u type lol its like a poem.

    2nd, that is totally not a good idea, ur using both jumps, the homing is easy to get around leaving u defenseless, and the super missile is so high in the air that it wont hit anything but maybe a shy guy on YS

    Na na

    I'm thinking of this as an edgeguard
    LIke if you hit a guy to the top left/right of the screen and they're gonna recover

    The initial homing will lock onto em and the 2 powers will cover two options


    and lol sowwie watty T.T <3

    wat

    like a marth or a falcon or something
    someone w/o float/multiple jumps
    try it and see how it looks
    run and FH homing missile (run cause it's easy to do a fh homing close to frame perfect)
    then dj a smash missile
    then imagine another smash missile before you land
    covers a lot of area in prime recovering territory

    nvm
    imagine nothin *****s
    I did it!
    **** that was awesome
    time to apply!
    lol.

    Were you able to successfully use it against an enemy? or just by itself?

    I'm having a hard time imagining it as practical.

    na I juss did it once
    but like
    Say you juss Fsmashed a marth or something and put him in the top left of the screen
    you run over to the left side of the stage, jump like 3/4ths the way there into this thing
    meanwhile the marth is commin down
    now he's got a homing missile and two power missiles commin his way
    it's ****in hard as balls to do
    or maybe i juss don't know the timing for jump after fh homing
    it juss sends a lot of **** out there where the marth would be recovering or anybody

    it's not gonna change the samus metagame or nothing
    and you'd probably be able to apply about as much pressure with much easier missile techniques
    but i was juss wonderin if it was possible n i did it so now i'm happy lol

    god ****it why do ppl never listen. its a cool thing to do for ****s and giggles like a tripple missile, BUT it will not raise the level of ur game, thats the problem with samus players she has so many tricks u wanna use em all and u can see how to use diffrent ones, BUT that doesn't mean there all good.

    samus players who are a bag of tricks dont go far cause ppl learn the tricks. It sucks but if u wanna imrpove and move cool and do some neat stuff, i suggest watching vids of IHSB and Alukards samus.

    o okay
    na I understand
    I use to be that way
    samus has a lot of tricks to learn and you can be fooled into think that being able to do them will make you good
    but she's juss not spose to be played all fancy
    she takes a lot of thought, you can't throw out attacks that are gonna get you punished
    can't worry about doing stupid ****, need to worry about gettin your hits in and not gettin hit yourself
