So the down throw combos from Smash 4 do not connect at all for me now.

The opponent is always able to DI or air dodge away.

The combos I'm trying are down throw into nair at low percent and down throw into up air at higher percent.

Do these just not work any more now?

Down throw forward air is really good now and works at pretty much any %. Down throw to nair only works on DI in or no DI and it's really hard because of how the buffering works in this game because you can't buffer nair with the sideways movement or you'll just get fair, you have to buffer a dash towards them and quickly cancel it with the nair, seems like it's air dodgeable for alot of characters though, I get down throw to connect to fair free at basically any % against any character but down throw to nair seems match up / player dependent.

Down throw combos into either n-air or f-air. U-air is completely gone, now.

But hey, she gained side b -> neutral b for a clean 30% projectile combo so it's not all bad.

Fair and nair work decently well, kinda have to read DI though. Bair seems to work as well for a nice kill confirm.
