Played two sets against JJRockets' Diddy at Roll Tier 6. It was actually my first time playing this matchup in tournament (I've played it a bit in friendlies, but not against someone nearly as good as him), so I kind of went in just wanting to play my game instead of the matchup, and relying on his lack of knowledge in said matchup.

For those who didn't catch it, Keitaro's recent Smash @ Xanadu 125, where he took 3rd, matches are being uploaded. Bracket: http://vgbootcamp.challonge.com/SatX11242015SSB4.

So far, we have Keitaro vs. Benji's Roy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cFPCpi-CfE.

Keitaro vs. Ash23's Bowser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncLgBSKKs6Y.

Keitaro vs. Seagull Joe's Sonic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_42lBOEQrA.

Keitaro vs. Master Eric's ROB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUD-YwL8SrY.

Update: Keitaro vs. False's Ryu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5je7PcBlyw.

Update 2: Keitaro vs. Boss's Luigi: https://youtu.be/VI-wjGX8cPk.

Unrelated to this are 8 matches of Falco vs. Pit uploaded on terminalkai: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vxbqhLTioQ. Really painful MU in my opinion and from the looks of it; the Falco players only managed 3 wins to the Pit players' 5.

Edit: terminalkai has another Falco ditto video; 4 matches: https://youtu.be/IpwTucrqN78. Note: sillly jab clanking happens at around 4:12 and ends at around 5:01, so if you don't want to deal with that, just skip to 5:00-ish. Coolest thing is that Uair's back hit is being incorporated more for Bair confirms.

I got to play online against the best Doc.Mario i know in Europe and fortunately he could record then upload the set of friendlies :

Anragon (Falco) vs Kudemo (Doc. Mario) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFD7wkmucgk

If you can take a look and give some feedback on my Falco, I would greatly appreciate it ! I don't know how to improve recently so any criticism or advice is welcomed.

Nice, you move quite fast and fluently with Falco....the only thing i think i could add is try thinking more instead of always been so agrassive and throw out moves?, but great baits, and cool moves and combos bro.

Thanks man, i really appreciate your comments. And actually yeah ! I'm going to try and stop going so crazy all over the place. You're right about that, i should think more and proceed to analyze my opponent.

This is a highlighted-replay of mine courtesy of sm4sh's upload feature. Most of the match wasn't very good, as I knew my opponent wasn't as experienced as I was with Falco, so I was experimenting/goofing off more than I normally would have. But that 2nd stock still has me like :joyful:

I dunno about the viability of this as a reliable combo though. Upthrow to bair seems to be a nice setup for low %'s or heavier characters. I've definitely pulled the combo off up to the point where I shoot the laser a couple of times since this match, so that much of it might be worth trying consistently, but spiking them at the end kind of relies on their reaction to the situation.

Nairo's Falco vs. Mr. E's Sheik and Marth: https://youtu.be/mOT774xmIqw.

Bracket: http://challonge.com/s4e30. The other sets are on RHS Tournament instead of Rush Hour Smash and from a glance, Nairo used ZSS and Robin for the other sets, but decided it was a good idea to use Falco for grand finals. Why? I don't know, but he won. He freaking won. The last time I saw his Falco were from some videos against this dude online. I might dig up those videos later since I'm on mobile right now.

Edit: Found them; they were against a guy named MewtwoLucas. They were all uploaded through the in-game replay uploaded and both descriptions said that game 1 and 4 were too long to be uploaded.

Nairo's Falco vs. MewtwoLucas's Mario (game 2): https://youtu.be/oQ9pFmpXGn4.

Nairo vs. MewtwoLucas (game 4): https://youtu.be/h-gZUItiEcc.

Edit 2: Edit Harder: Falco dittos between War Chief and DSF: https://youtu.be/glSwBv05FF4.

From watching the games, I feel you didn't play too aggressive, but you could've spaced yourself better overall. Cloud is just a frustrating character to fight against honestly, his remarkable spacing ability mixed with combo potential and the sheer fear that limit places in the opponent makes him a very great character.
Also, I didn't see you implement DownB much, and I feel you should because it snuffs out approach options and has a tripping effect.
I think you did very well, just that Trela was able to adapt very quickly. But great set, you're very good with Falco.

Trela was reading your jab cancel followups with a spotdodge, perhaps you could have punished those. You should always go for those Fairs instead of Dairs against Cloud. Otherwise, nice job.

Not really, but I do want some tips against me playing Cloud in bracket. Is Falco limited or did I just play way too aggressive?

First off, ask here in the video thread instead for critiques. Second, the Cloud MU thread won't be up in next week? That's about a month which I prefer as the minimum for DLC character MU threads to be posted. That being said, asking and discussing it here or the main post of the MU discussion is fine. Haven't watched your set yet, so I leave that off until later...

From terminalkai, そーめん's Falco vs. ぽん's Ganondorf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-aI1LZe9xA.

8 sets of Falco dittos all in one video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTU-JnFVq4E. 2 matches are on the 3DS and the rest are on the Wii U. The players in this video are in the video description.

From last week were more Falco dittos, but they were separate videos. あるくぅ vs. ナナメミギ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWj_fpDD2qU.

まっちゃ vs. だいや: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnXPQYRcHI8.

So recently Iv really put in work with Falco up in Michigan consistently placing at least top 16 at our main weeklies(the ones with Ally and Zinoto) and got 5th at a 70+ man tourney last weekend.

https://youtu.be/oSHdxCv1weY

Of the matches I played on stream I feel this upset showed my play the best. Game 3 I tried to play way more patient then I usually do to hold my lead and it worked out so Im gonna try to do that more. Any critique or just watching it would be appreciated. Also
So skip the breaks between matches my opponent takes awhile to stage strike.

https://youtu.be/84ClqVU4-TM

And this here is my set against Ally, honestly I think I kinda held my own besides the SD at the end, guess I just got nervous :/

There was a Falco at Shulla Bra V, a Japanese tournament that SHI-G hosted and I think happened near Genesis 3? Anyway, this set was cut off, so I don't know if he won or not; Pikazono's Falco vs. Hishikawa's DK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kEoWiDW0Zs.

These weren't cut off; these are amazing. Team Star Fox was made up of Ki-tan's Fox and Pikazono's Falco and they had wicked setups e.g. Ki-tan would setup horizontally for Pikazono and Pikazono would setup vertically for Ki-tan. So, Star Fox vs. Wax's Peach and Kurousa's ZSS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sxqu7P_Z29A.

Star Fox vs. Honiya's Ness and Gokuakuk's Ryu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OufBMBMPi5I.

Small tournament, but Baj takes Sm4sh@SagLac 1/16/16. Bracket: http://satsl.challonge.com/s4atsaglac16012016.

Baj's Falco vs. ellord's Marth and ZSS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDVbSupvQ8M.

Baj's Falco vs. Talckup's DK (Winners Bracket): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5MHgbHgjLM.

Baj's Falco vs. Dead's Meta Knight and ROB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7ECaOh7j-Q.

Baj's Falco and Lucina vs. Talckup's DK (Grand Finals): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCc5gvZW-Gg.

tamisuma.jp, formerly the channel terminalkai, had this uploaded recently; 10 sets between Falco and Alph/Olimar & Pikmin players: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKpjxulNz1g.

Also, Larry Lurr used Falco against Mr. R's Link for the the most intense hand-warmer ever at Genesis 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jmKBvWpZzY. After that, he and Mr. R have another hand-warmer with Larry using DK, then the real match starts and he goes Fox.

Really? Hmm... I know NickRiddle NickRiddle and Xaltis Xaltis have accounts here, but I'm not sure about the others. I hope they don't mind me tagging them. Maybe check the regional zones on Smashboards? Maybe shoot them a PM or something.

What's up everyone Daybreak here.
So last Saturday at a Michigan Regional(Breakout 1) I played Ally again in tournament and took him to last hit game 3! Game 1 he won somewhat convincing, I won game 2, and game 3 he won last hit(he was at 1 stock 92%). I remembered to save the replay of game 2 which I finally got on YouTube one way or another... The link being here

https://youtu.be/ZGjKNXsprGI

So that was pretty cool, I have many matches on stream over the past few tournaments, so check out GooshiGaming on YouTube to see a couple recent ones! I even got top 8 at the same 82 man weekly where Zinoto beat ally again earlier this week.

Sup guys

Recently won the latest weekly (used falco and pit about 50/50) and this time I decided to use falco against jfk's yoshi (who is probably going to be our number 1 pr) despite my pit having a really good record in sets against him. Last time I went falco in this matchup I lost about 5-8 games in a row, so I'm happy it worked out the way it did!

I haven't played Falco in a while but I recently decided to make "Truth or Dair 2" so I've been playing him a lot again. It will most likely stay that way. Anyways...

Anther's Ladder Match - vs Bayonetta (May sound Crazy, but I honestly like the Bayo Matchup)

Serious Friendlies - vs Falcon 1 - vs Falcon 2

This is not a match, but was during a match. Falco Jab 1 slicing right through Bayonetta's Fsmash!

Cyro Cyro I could've swore I seen that montage like a week before you posted it here, on DMG's YouTube. (Could be an exaggeration)

Good Stuff as always
-----------------------------
FALCO BOARDS BE DEAD OFTEN!

I'd really like some insight on this match vs Greninja (@PHaZeX3R0)

If you want, here is a video of Falco's Nair (If you dont Nair much, you should watch it, 1:45 long)

Pikazono's been using a lot of reverse jump-canceled Up Smash in these videos against 小麦粉さん's Robin; Pikazono's Falco vs. 小麦粉さん's Robin [Part 1], [Part 2], [Part 3], [Part 4], [Part 5], and [Part 6]. First 3 parts weren't really that great for Pikazono, but the last 3 has Pikazono picking up some steam. They're also the ones where reverse JC'd Up Smashes are used a lot. Pikazono's movement is inconsistent at times... The description when translated said they're online, so maybe Pikazono was getting used to the input lag? I don't know.

With the buffs to Up Smash in 1.1.4, Up Smash should be labbed as much as possible. Reverse JC'd Up Smashes has Falco slide just a bit, the hitbox seems to stretch a bit, and the last hit lingers despite the animation, so it might be "safer" at times when Falco can slide a bit away and behind not to mention that he can close the distance a bit more than a running Up Smash or a JC'd Up Smash. Also, the I-frames at the start which considering it's a frame 7 move that now kills fairly well would make it a good OOS option.

Don't usually do this nowadays, but this goes to special mention. @ILOVESMASH, I believe this is what you were talking about with Falco's foxtrot or dash -- I'd like to call it this since dashes happen before (sustained) runs. It's been put to practice in a tournament by StarPrime. Took 3rd in these uploaded videos: http://challonge.com/neosingles4. He took 1st in the previous one, but I don't know if he used Falco -- probably did since it's his main. Small tournament, but some of the players look really good.

StarPrime's Falco vs. Bob Mowzie's Ganondorf and Triple D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBhxo4QqreE.

StarPrime vs. Gemini's Ganondorf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKal7l2ZmF0.

StarPrime's vs. G-Rain's Lucas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92Pbt7yqiZg. Unrelated, but the song in the first match, Another Winter, is awesome.

The one thing to note which ILOVESMASH was talking about is that StarPrime uses a lot of dashes for ground movement; he rarely ever runs and if goes for sustained ground movement, he'll walk. His movement is mostly dashes, walks, and jumps. The way he moves with Falco reminds me of Marth players dashing around. It also reminds me of Nash from Street Fighter V; Nash has a slow walk speed which is equivalent to Falco's having low run speed, but Nash's dash is fast which is also shared with Falco.

Other interesting thing to note is that StarPrime only used Up Smash once in all of the recorded sets. Weird since there were many chances for him to anti-air and land trap with it. He also rarely uses jab 2 and rapid jab; he uses a lot of jab 1 to Dtilt. From a player standpoint, his inputs are spot on and he buffers almost all of his throws. I really hope to see more of StarPrime's gameplay.

Will update the notable Falco player list with StarPrime as an Aviator... I don't know where to find enough information on Neo Arcadia. All I got is that it's possibly held in New York -- first listing of Neo Arcadia on Smashboards: http://smashboards.com/threads/may-...-u-singles-and-doubles-mount-kisco-ny.437236/ --, it's either streamed by 914 Smash or poKevSim, and that it might be a recent tournament series. For StarPrime, I think he has an account here, but it's been inactive for quite some time. For the list itself, if you haven't checked on it -- edits don't count as new posts, so it doesn't get marked as unread for those watching it -- I've updated it recently and there's a giant list of Japanese players, the players who participated in the Falco-only tournaments and other tournaments held and uploaded on terminalkai, now known as tamisuma.jp.

Yeah, is it ok if I upload videos that aren’t that great of quality. I have a camera and some replays, but I don’t really have any other way. Can I just upload those, or do I jave to make sure it's capture card?
